Unlock gold camo for all weapon classes.Plague Diamond
Unlock diamond camo for all weapon classes.Dark Aether

The trickiest camo challenge appears to be in the 'Infection' category, which requires us to score 20 or more consecutive kills with our weapon without taking damage. While tearing through Die Maschine working on the Call of Duty: Cold War Zombies Easter egg, I found it difficult to avoid zombies swiping at me, particularly in the Particle Accelerator room where the walkways are quite narrow. Managing to dodge incoming undead attacks 10 times for the Conviction camo sounds near-impossible, but maybe that's down to my slow reflexes.
