[Feedback] Concept I made for Aetherium Crystals to have a use after upgrading everything to Tier V. Consists of a shop where you can buy and equip different camos to each of the Pack-a-Punch tiers since it seems every map in the game will have the same PaP camo.

BIasphemy

This is a top concept


inactivesky1738

I feel like we need something like this but not with atherium because then that would do you desymsive the point of maxing everything out first. I’m sorry I can’t spell that word. But you get the point


OneCorvette1

Lol I can’t figure out what word you’re trying to say


inactivesky1738

The opposite of incentive lol deincentive idk if it’s a word. I speak kains English lol. In other words I make up my own vocabulary down here in the south Lol


OneCorvette1

Disincentive is what you’re looking for! Lol


inactivesky1738

Yes that’s a word that my gramical library lacked. Now it’s stuck in the ok noggin just to be forgotten be sunrise lol. :)


Caleb016

Fellow okie?


tdm17mn

It would actually be disincentivize lol


OneCorvette1

His sentence was so jacked I couldn’t tell how he was trying to say it lol


VagueLuminary

Perhaps we lock the crystal shop behind upgrading everything? Then it's a special reward for those dedicated enough to max things out beforehand.


rainbowappleslice

That could work really well


R4MSAY13

Almost like the prestige key system?


VagueLuminary

Almost.........getting to first prestige is really easy though, compared to maxing all the crystal upgrades.


R4MSAY13

I agree I’m just comparing it to the prestige key system


inactivesky1738

Ya that would probably be the best system. I’m my option


jj209th

Most people who would care about a feature like this already maxed everything out and can't earn crystals


PM_For_HappyMeals

Please add this treyarch. Last week I was thinking how it would be cool to be able to purchase previous PAP camos with either prestige tokens or aetherium crystals.


HyperRa3ve

Rather not prestige tokens but im all for crystal grinding


XiTzCriZx

Especially with the stupid way the prestige shop works.


twyistd

What's wrong with the prestige shop?


XiTzCriZx

You have to be prestige master in order to spend any of the tokens, and once the rank resets you can't even equip anything that has already been bought (unless this was fixed and not covered in patch notes). I'm prestige 5 or 6 and I can't use any of the prestige tokens I've earned unless I no life the game and get to level 250 which just isn't possible with the amount of time I play the game, if they integrate the seasons with the next game then I won't be able to spend any of my tokens for atleast 2 years, and by that point the game's probably gonna be dead anyhow.


twyistd

Really I switch calling cards all the time and I'm not prestige master. I know there are some calling cards that require you to be prestige master but almost all of them don't have that requirement.


XiTzCriZx

I think you also can't buy or equip emblems unless you're prestige master, even if the emblem is for a lower prestige than you are, imo the emblems are the only thing really worth it since there were rumors of custom blueprints being added to the shop so I don't wanna waste all my tokens on calling cards I'm probably gonna use once.


twyistd

Ah I didn't try buying emblems.


zMyNameIsDuckyz

This is fantastic but it’s way too pro consumer to ever happen, this is what the in game store is for.


Axelini14

The sad truth


itshighnoon94

Well, not entirely. See Activision needs you to have an incentive to grind for, so you return to the game. That’s what all the challenges are for. People who play, are people who are more likely to buy microtransactions. Therefore, some minor reward like a camo could actually improve their revenue, since people keep playing to grind for them.


CristianD63

I mean if they go well on blueprints it's a win win could you imagine the GK camo on the Ice Drake Krig hell yeah I'd fork over 20 bucks for that


toastednutella

Maybe only allowing the purchase after everything has been upgraded?


ThunderStruck115

That would be kinda iffy whenever Treyarch decides to add something like a new perk or field upgrade. If I already had everything upgraded, would I lose the ability to purchase camos when Treyarch adds something new to upgrade?


ThunderStruck115

Not exactly, since even if you buy a camo, you can't assign it to be applied when pack a punched.


BRAYNE_1

This is a f*cking BRILLIANT idea! Treyarch should absolutely add this, it'd be phenomenal. Also add a way to unlock them for use on ordinary weapons in create a class??


lixiaopingao

Treyarch would add this. Activision wouldn’t.


sayce__

We’re still pretending Treyarch is completely powerless in these decisions huh?


inertxenon

Do you really think the developers don’t want to make a better game? Of course they do. Any new content has to go through Activision, who will see these camos and say to make them into blueprints instead and sell them in the store. Not everything is Activisions fault like the bans but majority of them are their fault.


reshstreet

Replace crystals with cod points and you'll see this implemented by season 4


Glitcher45318

Before a new round based map

TheSaviors2238

Wow... treyarch please


IMJacob1

I miss buying a camo for $2 and getting it for EVERY gun back in BO2. No loot boxes and no $24 bundles when you only want one thing out of it and all the things together aren’t worth even $10 to begin with. It’d be nice if we could buy the old Pack camos and put it on our guns in MP too but I know they’d never do that


toastednutella

$24 musician bundle is exactly that for me, I love the look of the diamatti skin but the rest is a bit trash


Legends414

I like this idea!


Lego9544

This is such a good idea


xyDominator

AWESOME You deserve ....... something if I had something to give you


zi6oo

THIS


Serious_Chicken_3166

Yessss!! I really want to get the pack camos for MP because the pink and tier III is amazing


NotACaveiraMain

Same. Except Dark Aether and Diamond, there isn't a camo that I really like in this game.


Axelini14

I was also thinking in adding to this shop things like EE Music tracks from past games (Abracadavre, Archangel, Pareidolia, 115 with vocals, etc.) so that you can play them in the Music Player in-game. I also wanted to say thank you all for the positive reception to the concept, all we can do is hope Treyarch to see this (since they mentioned they check the subreddit in their blog) and add it to the game in their own way, what a wild dream that would be.


Axelini14

u/FoxhoundFPS Hey Fox, is there any slight chance the Zombies dev team can see this and consider implementing it to the game so that there is more use to Aetherium Crystals beyond upgrades?


FoxhoundFPS

Cool concept! I'll share it, but no promises of course.


Axelini14

Yo! Thanks for replying, it really means a lot y’all are considering this type of concepts and feedback. Glad you liked the concept :)


TranzitIsGood

It's awesome that you're sharing it with the team, even if it might not get added. Any way to keep earning and spending aetherium crystals would add a lot of replayability to the game. (Preferably not OP consumables though)


Ninja_Naranja

If overgrowth is among those such camos I would be so happy. It’s my fav cod camo


domav

That is just an all around amazing idea. It’ll never happen.


TheLVL5Mage

I know they would never do this but I wish we could chose pack-a-punch skin is used from any of the games. I really miss the engraved skins from the WaW days.


YT_dynamosavage

You are a bloody genius, throw in the origins and world at war pack a punch camos then we're getting somewhere.


TheEnderKnight935

I’m sure origins is just a blue variant of “Weaponized 115”.


Shubishu

contrary to public belief the bo2 origins camo was a lot more complex than just blue weaponized 115 accent, the secondary parts were all fitted with grey, steampunk-like patterns resembling metal plating, in bo3 this is absent and instead the 115 portion is animated while the grey portion is just a solid color.


TheEnderKnight935

I’m sure origins is just a blue variant of “Weaponized 115”.


TheEnderKnight935

I’m sure origins is just a blue variant of “Weaponized 115”.


Djblue23

Activision = that will be 100 Crystal's and 2400 cod points


kinit935

It would be super cool if they actually did this!!!


Carbonozone

Really like this idea. I’ve always enjoyed Mastery Camo grinds. Deep end-game aspirational content is what motivates me me to play more than anything else. Was sad when I finally finished the dark aether grind because I didn’t have anything left to grind for! Then enjoyed grinding for all the flawless crystals, but now I’m sad because I’ve finished those too! If treyarch really wants to keep players involved, add another grindy process for me to struggle through haha


PlayCheeseMayhem

I’m hoping for somewhat of an obsidian Camo like MW, and maybe a double mastery Camo which will be obtained by having Dark aether and that Camo for all weapons


IsObamaOkay

My hopes are low cuz they are most likely going to put them in bundles knowing Activision


pleasegriefmode

Couldn’t they technically do this for the prestige shop also?


Axelini14

Yep


pleasegriefmode

Good Job btw! This is a sick idea!


Axelini14

Thank you! :)


DanieelGALO

Amazing bro, how this arent with 5k up?


One_StreamyBoi

Can you imagine a feature like this with the current state of the game?


lagordaamalia

This is a great idea but if we actually get something like this it will be in the store, there’s no chance that you pay with in game currency


shrek1234567810

This would be awesome. I've gotten everything I care about up to Tier VI, and I'd like some new content to keep up that feeling up progression or an overall goal. Great job, OP.


TranzitIsGood

We definitely need an aetherium crystal shop. This would be a great idea


Dapper-Device

Shit don’t give Activision ideas. You know damm well they’d add some OP shit for zombies to the store then. Since everyone can get the crystals freely, I know they’d add a option to buy crystal packs to then use on a zombies store for weapon variants or gobblegum.


Dildozer333

Is this something in the works or something you were just working on?


Axelini14

It’s an idea I made that could be implented to the game so that Aetherium Cystals have a use after upgrading everything


Dildozer333

I think it’s great that’s the reason I was asking, it looks legit. Hopefully they can implement something like this into the game just so the diehard zombie players have even more incentive to keep playing


nickolispickolis

There should be a way to use this in multi-player as well.


Axelini14

Prestige Keys could be the way


nickolispickolis

Maybe not just packa punch camos. Also bo2 camos. He'll I'll shit my pants if I see iw Blacksky camo.


TheEnderKnight935

YES. Black sky is, and without doubt, a top 3 completionist camo. Who wouldn’t want a galaxy on their gun? Yeah dark matter is cool, and so is Damascus, but having an animated universe mowing down hostiles? YES.


NarcissisticGamer

This is it chief. 👍


incoherentjedi

Nice


ColdColt45

Gosh I love this idea. But you gotta remember this will compete with real money cosmetic sales by degrading their value and giving the player accomplishment-based rewards. The game prioritizes an `only money can buy` cosmetic realm and this would disrupt their own marketplace.


CodeNameSkorpion

We will watch your career with great interest


HextasyOG

Too good for CoD honestly, no way they implement something this useful for the consumer


Lil_ol_bean

Oh wow this is cool. Too bad treyarch isn't interested in cool these days.


Friddles-14

u/foxhoundFPS Ay man, can you pass the idea around, pretty please?


abcdefghijklmnop987

Activision: *Laughs in Microtransaction*


SnapT1ght

I actually thought this was real for a second and got exited, this is a very good idea


ShortsInABox

God tier idea


planesandsnakes

I love this idea I hope it gets seen by developers


superkiller482

Let me buy camos, but forblike 10 top tiers, I want to buy my way past fucking 20 knife kills without getting hit once.


Chasefor_28

The new camos for PAP would replace the currents, or would they change off the new concept camos?


Axelini14

Basically it is your choice, you can keep the Cold War PaP camos or you can buy camos from previous games with crystals and place them in the PaP tier that you wish them to be.


Chasefor_28

I'd fuck with that; kinda like how there's sweet camos for CDL but the bundles are trash. An all camo/nee camo bundle would be sweet


Interesting_Use_6060

Or just have map exclusive pap camos


DankOne8

Etching becomes the origins camo


SynCya-

Just let us buy camos period, like universal types of camos that we can use on any weapons


Blaaade

This is a great idea! I really hope Treyarch sees this and does something similar


Demigod978

I really like this. Adds more content to the game, and gives more endgame (I feel like end game) studd


lil_chungy

Add the camos from zetsubo no Shima and I do believe I might buy cold war


Austrian_mann

The origins one would look absolutely beautiful on the PPSH


Dd123456123456

u/foxhoundfps


Gr3yHound40

I'd LOVE this, and just straight up cosmetics to use on any gun. Charms, stickers and camos even if they're individual and cheap, or universal and EXPENSIVE with crystals.


Daniel328DT

Hm, for some reason I see monetization to go with this. If they treat it anything like Prestige keys then maybe not.


Neto_Lozano

With activision being a bunch of assholes, most likely will see these with COD Points, but i hope they do the same thing as BO4 S4


whokilleddababy

this is super cool. i was thinking the other day too about how cool it would be if we got a bundle or something where depending on the amount of kills you got it would turn into the pack a punch camos.


BargainBinCaptainT

I came up with this idea at launch


Sepulchure24794

Lowkey I just want the BO1 Pack a punch Skin. The one with the red lines and shit lol think BO2 had that as a multiplayer skin for dlc


TheEnderKnight935

No it had the engravings from its own zombies mode.


hoesuay

I just think the Default Level 1 pap camo Is ugly as hell lol


The-RIDGER

Isn't it sad that someone who's not on Activisions payroll comes out with much, MUCH better and greater concepts than the people who are... Cough...Onslaught...Cough!


jbm013

Amazing concept! (Ritual was the best PaP camo ever)


exciter984_

yo i never thought of this and im glad you made this, this is brilliant


tak749

Instead of with Aetherium crystals I feel like prestige keys would probably be a more realistic option and you could use them to perma unlock those camoes


ThamThmith

Activation would definitely sell these for real money lmao


jiggaboogey

Haha your funny treyarch would never do anything like this everything must be payed for now days.


Norogo02

This would get me to play Cold War more during the content drought. Just been playing origins high rounds on bo3 all week because Cold War is so boring right now


TomahawkSmells

that amethyst camo is the one I used for all my BO3 guns. I need it badly


NooliesKnickKnacks

This is an amazing idea. But treyarch wants to make money, they would probably never do this when they could just throw the camos in a bundle and selling it for $25. It’s a shame because I really love this concept and I would be over joyed if they added it!


uSlashRev

This is absolutely brilliant, intuitive and useful! ​ Which is exactly why it won't ever even be touched on by Treyarch :|


AffectionateKey1625

We need bo1 and waw pap camo


piddl3paddle

Yes! The perfect way to bring back old pap camos


Sonic5365

Absolutely yes.


LoneAvenger64

Come on Treyarch, please see this. This is an amazing idea. Amazing job OP!


maxmgu15

Treyarch needs to see this


[deleted]

I was thinking something like the teeth in Extinction. You could grind out Easter Eggs while actually working towards something.


Axelini14

Yea, and now that Easter Eggs will give you aetherium crystals we need something to spend them on


That_kidNamedBRANDON

You should work at Treyarch.


DronelessMind

This is such a good idea


Fresh_Repeat_4169

This would be so dope, would actually make me want to play again


Fresh_Repeat_4169

I would rock the origins one it’s 10/10 godlike


lixiaopingao

Love to see WAW pap camo back


MemePolice37

this would also be nice if we could get a atherium forge. combining a set number of crystals to get a better one, since after upgrading everything you dont need em anymore.


Gluuten

That would be too consumer friendly for Activision to implement.


Dumfann

This would definitely add the same fun grind as when the tier 3 4 and 5 crystals were added


callmevolca

My guy needs to be hired


IHGBRENDY

Am I the only person that wishes zombie camos was unlocked the same way as blackout camos? But instead of using spray cans we could use athierum crystals.


jellyfishy4986

Or maybe perm camos that doesn't require you to pap?


TrashAtFN

Weaponized 115 And Afterlife from bo2 pls


Fibrosis5O

Wait, y’all ain’t getting crystals anymore after maxing everything? I sell mine for COD points...


TheLocalRedditMormon

Great concept, but it’s the quickest way to make Activision add aetherium as an ingame purchase like liquid divinium.


Kiddo_xo

One of the best concepts I seen on here. This would be so good which means it’ll probably not happen smh


RespectAgreeable5752

This would be awesome!!


Cumsabit

u/FoxhoundFPS sounds cool would be awesome if you'll look into that :)


Operator_Binky

Would be nice to see thw origins blue pap camo. I really liked it. :)


Mega_Chin_Hirohito

OP let me kiss you


rainbowappleslice

I would love that so much


MGMozeker

Well some devs lurk around this sub so it’s possible butttt with a very small chance to no chance of happening


NathanielTat

God damn this is an incredible idea, but they would make this be a micro transaction unfortunately not with crystals


jazevedo_

I mean that would be cool and all but man everything to level 5? that's way too much, I would rather being able to buy some cool camos from other cods with prestige keys


TheColdMr

We wish dude, they won't ever bring back old camos


Pointsevenfour

And we should be able to put camos on guns and have they stay even if we get them from the box like bo3, that’s my only complaint with Cold War zombies


xZiGGy97

Nice to see a lil throwback to some bo3 camos! Love this idea as well


nuttella-deathstar

Sick but they will turn into mtx


harleydee123

Great idea. Side note, how come there’s never any love for the OG Pap camo? Always seemed like the best one to me


carsonhorton343

Etching was the pack skin from Kino, right? It’s been a while since I played BO3.


ThunderStruck115

This is an amazing idea.


Aggressive-Damage-25

100% on board with this idea! Gospel Treyarch see this


CallMeNomad

Into the void! Gutted I missed out on that


jonymachado

That's insane! Great work!


reevoknows

How are we as a community consistently providing this game with top level concepts? Lol. Not like they’ll use any of these ideas though but this one is one of the best I’ve seen.


XsleepdeprivedX

this concept seems pretty cool and would be amazing if implemented


grusty_

this is a great idea, we need something new to the game so we can use lower tier crystals instead of just having flawless ones ( i have all of my skills to teir 4 or higher).


_baller25

i would like them to add these to the prestige shop or at least something similar with camos there, but that’ll probably never happen because activision needs their money from blueprints


PercyTheTeenageBox

Treyarch, please add this. Part of the excitement from bo3+4 was seeing the new pack a punch camo for the first time with each map. Don’t get me wrong, I love the current camo. I would seriously play more if you added something like this.


_Erih_

This is BRILLIANT


Kryyptochris

What a great idea wow


LoopZoop2tokyodrift

Always wanted aetherium crystals to be spendable on 2xp tokens tbh


tdm17mn

I don’t know about you guys, but I really think they should make the pack a punch camos un-lockable so we can use them in other modes.


I_like_fortnite1234

YESSSSSS


JaseemPlayz

that tier 1 is my 2nd favorite bo3 camo and its only tier 1 lol


brostitos

Treyarch please


Pr0Pir0

Put this on twitter and it might happen


davzigvon

OH MAN, YOU GOT ME FVVKED UP! I thought this was real. EXCELLENT! And the quick quality of life improvements that came into Zombies today are MUAH! Appreciate ya Treyarch.


that1redditer0703

Too consumer friendly. The only way they’ll implement it is through COD points


cajusta

Considering their new income are cosmetics, you will have to pay for get those. But this is just a great concept I love it


cero1399

Amazing idea


KFC_Crispy_OG

Good idea there but nah. This is bundle potential for activision.


TheStrikeofGod

YES! I absolutely love this idea! Treyarch please!


Ornery-Membership754

This is such a good idea lets get this added


stanley557

One of the best ideas to come out of this community


Psychological-Act644

they should also be available with multiplayer i bet they would want to put something like that out . i’m sure it would bring hella $$$$


Matthewengland510

Maybe prestige keys could be used? They keep stacking up for me and I’ve only ever spent 3


Akinboy74

I kinda just wanna spend some Prestige Keys on something


Last-Addendum132

Bro this is the type of thing that needs to be SLAPPED onto treyarch’s desk RIGHT NOW.


Admirable-Community8

Dude this looks nothing like something Treyarch would make and put out there for the world to see. Sorry to be rude but hey, "Treyarch, you should take note of what this fellow did in his FREE time because it looks a lot more pleasing than what you are putting out" In case anyone didn't get this, it was a compliment to this gentleman's creativity, skill and just plain ole simple dedication to a game he loves. Wow, I wish our COD creaters would still have that fire within themselves. Disclaimer: This is in no way shape or form downgrading the fantastic job that a certain number of Treyarch employees put forth and into this game.


RealRandomes

Where the fuck is bo1 and bo2 PaP camos?


Individual-Shape5317

Or just turn em into prestige keys not all of us have time to play enough to buy every single item from the shop


Individual-Shape5317

This will never work though cos they wanna monetize it as much as possible


Frank_Gomez_

They’re too lazy and greedy to do this, like look at the newest field upgrade, it’s just a png of a bush with gashound damage effects


necrozmaistrash

?


L-Guy_21

This but with prestige keys instead
