Dark Ops Black Ops 4 Guide – Multiplayer, Blackout & Zombies Challenges


Welcomes top our Dark Ops Black Ops 4 challenges guide, where you’ll find everything you need to know to be able to complete the various challenges spaced across Black Ops’ various modes. Much like the popular weekly Fortnite challenges the Dark Ops Black Ops 4 version allows players to show off their style of play, guns, as well as test some awesome attachments. Similar to your usual online challenges players will be awarded XP in addition to Dark Ops calling cards.

The great spin on the multiplayer, blackout and zombie Dark ops challenges is that they remain a mystery until you fulfil their requirements. This means that the rewards you get in return remain on the down-low until a challenge is completed. That is, until the Black Ops 4 fan base started to unlock the Dark Ops Black Ops 4  challenges and share them online – which is where we come in to bring you a list of the where’s and how-to’s for unlocking them.

Should you be coming into this fresh it may feel a little confusing at first, but we’ve got you covered with our Dark Ops Black Ops 4 guide. All challenges in addition to how to complete them are listed below, so start working your way through the list and in return increase your calling card collection.

I've been a gamer ever since I was old enough to hold a controller, early 90's to be exact. My first console was a NES, with my favourite games ranging from Super Mario to Duck Hunt. Fast forward almost 30 years and I'm now a PS4, PC and Switch player. My ideal genres are RPG and RTS titles, so Assassin's Creed, Kingdom Hearts, Viv 6 and Two Point Hospital are included in my mix.

Have your say!
