Have you always wanted that gold camo on one of your weapons to show everyone how much of a boss you are and blind people who look at it? Well, I have some tips for you. THESE SHOULD BE DONE AT LEVEL 55 AND IN HARDCORE (trust me hardcore is easier doing this).
Just get to level 55... it's actually NOT that hard.
Golden Assault Rifle (AK47)
What you need to do before you do any of these is get to Level 55 (the highest level) since the last assault rifle you unlock is pretty high up there (and it also sucks). First, any assault rifles you have at digital/blue tiger camo you need to get to red tiger camo. Blue tiger to Red tiger is 75 headshots, and if you want to have no camo to Red tiger it is 150 headshots. Getting headshots at long range with assault rifles if your target is moving is VERY hard. Equip a silencer to the assault rifles you are using and try and sneak into the enemy sniping points and spawn points. When you see someone, line up your shot and fire. You need to get Red tiger camo on EVERY ASSAULT RIFLE to unlock the gold AK. Good luck!
Golden SMG (Mini-Uzi)
Use the same tactic as in the Assault Rifle, but make sure you're more stealthy. Since SMGs fire super fast it'll be hard to get a good shot off even at medium range, so if you get into an enemy sniping spot make sure you get up close and personal. Since enemies may have their sound up or have a UAV in the air, you may need to hurry and headshot everyone in the room before they kill you. You need to get Red tiger on EVERY SMG to unlock the gold Mini-Uzi. Good luck!
Golden Sniper (Dragunov)
The Dragunov is one of my favorite sniper rifles because it works so well in hardcore modes. Long range kills? No problema. Short range spam? 1 hit death. I'm very close to getting this gold right now, and these are my tips.
If you have no sniper rifles red tiger, start with the bolt action ones (preferably the R700). Sit in sniping spots and attack enemy sniping spots. Since most snipers stand still when they are shooting, these will be fairly easy, unless they're shooting at YOU. If you want to get more up-close and personal, try attaching an ACOG onto that and use the same tactic as in SMG and Assault Rifles. What works for me is doing a tactic like the one in the map "Strike," if you are OpFor. Run up into the building on the Marines use to attack the OpFor spawn at the start of a match, and prone at the window overlooking the new Marine spawn (the cafe building). You should be looking at the alleyway in the back. When people spawn in the small window or run up the side of the street, flick and pick them off with a headshot. After every shot, prone down again without taking your scopes off. Wait a second, then go back to crouching. Once you do this, there may be some snipers of assault rifles focused on your position from the spawn. THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT. If they can see you, you can see them if you look. Flick and pick, prone, crouch, repeat. Again, you need to get Red tiger with EVERY SNIPER to unlock the gold.
Golden Shotgun (M1014)
The shotguns will be the absolute hardest to get headshots with, since the spread is immense. You will have to go into - again - enemy sniping spots and get very close with sights up and shoot them in da face (you should use a red dot sight for this). You need to get Red tiger for every shotty... good luck (this may take a VERY long time)
Golden LMG (M60)
The LMG is possibly the easiest to get gold on since there's practically no sway when you're in ADS. Either try staying back at medium distance and picking off guys in tiny hallways (like the one in Broadcast by the restrooms) or run in guns blazing into the spawns. DON'T USE AN ACOG FOR THIS, either use default sights with a grip or an RDS.
Hopefully this will help you get yo gold guns in CoD 4, and once I get my gold Dragunov you guys are welcome to use it.
IF you kill me. :3
