DICE LA weapon camo?

I was wondering if there was a list of weapons camo that also provides the effect of the DICE soldier camo so you are completely invisible to thermal optics? Its kind of silly that the player is
harder too see but a floating weapon is still plainly visible. I believe the Scar H SV has a default camo that works(worked?) that way but are there any others?

for any information.

As far as I know, the DICE camo is the only one that provides the invisibility to thermal optics, but that's not an intended effect. The reason people are invisible when wearing the DICE camo is due to a quirk of the thermal optics implementation. Thermal optics are implemented via a scheme that involves color grading; anything that shows up white in thermal optics is actually colored pink and then a filter is applied to the player's viewpoint to make pink things look white (that's what I remember it being; the devs had to rewrite the thermal optics implementation when they added the night maps and details of it have probably changed due to the rewrite). I think whoever implemented the DICE camo forgot to mark as something that needs to be turned pink, and since it's white, it becomes black once the filter is applied.
