He's a movie monster, he's smarter than most animals and is related to us. The only reason his kind never evolved to make technology is they never needed to because of their insane size and strength, only using tools occasionally when fighting hand to hand is not enough.
I agree with the weapons and equipment and also vote for him making traps around the battleground (Maybe after losing the first skirmish and retreating), but warpaint is a bit too far unless it had practical use. Last I recall, Goji doesn't have predator like thermal vision so covering himself with warpaint wouldn't help Kong fight him. Kong is a pragmatist in combat so I don't think he'd put on warpaint just to show off. If humans gave him armor though he could still use that because it has practical use.
tl;dr: from what i've seen Kong is all about practicality, not showing off, so it's fine if he uses weapons and tricks but I doubt he'd use warpaint unless it provided any advantage. (If it did, i'd be fine with it unless it's explained badly and comes off as a deus ex machina)
