Unlocking the option to customise your weapons allows you to change the colour of the weapon - Does this affect the likelihood of being spotted?

For instance, if I've got a bright pink gun, am I more likely to be spotted than if it was a brown camo pattern?

  • Seems very unlikely that it would affect your camo index. Can't verify this though. Commented Sep 10, 2015 at 13:05
  • If it is true, it would be kind of a dick move, since rubber bullet weapons like the RIOT SMG and the nonlethal version of the UN-ARC are painted bright blue by default. Commented Sep 10, 2015 at 13:42

    @LucasLeblanc I hope that it's not - Just with all the attention to detail put into this game, I wouldn't be surprised if it is!

I've colored all my non-lethal guns in the same bright blue color that their parts are highlighted with. I haven't noticed a single change to the detection enemy AI.

However, these guns might make you stick out in FOB to other players.
