Rare weapon blueprints and character skins in Black Ops Cold War

The completionist camos Dark Aether and DM Ultra from Cold War are very difficult to grind. Players need to unlock the Diamond Camo for all the weapons in both the Zombies and the Multiplayer modes. Grinding weapon camos can take hours of gameplay, something not everyone is up for.

Activision partnered up with Comcast for a promotional event back in Season One of Cold War. This was only open for Comcast Internet users who received a Racer calling card and a Beck operator uniform for signing up for the event. Similarly, Beck also has a Velocity operator skin which is extremely rare. As part of a promotional event with Sky Broadband, this skin was only available to people living in the UK.

Apart from these, PlayStation 4 and PS5 users also had a chance to get their hands on some exclusive weapon blueprints. Activision had an exclusive Zombies Onslaught Mode event. As a reward for getting 7 chalices, players received the Type 63 Crow Storm blueprint. Moreover, for completing 9 chalices, they got the QBZ Hellhock, and there was also the Diamatti Primal Hunter as a reward in this event.

Rebirth Island Easter eggs and exclusive charms

Call of Duty Warzone featured the Rebirth Island map during the first season. It contained an Easter egg the involved unlocking a red room on the map. This rewarded players with the Red Room blueprint for the Milano SMG. The Rebirth event also included the Hazardous blueprint for the Krig 6, which was available to Black Ops Cold War players due to the Warzone integration.
