How to Complete Blackout Dark Ops Challenges

Unique Blackout Calling Cards are hidden behind Easter Eggs.

by William Schwartz


Completing the Dark Ops Challenges in Call of Duty Blackout will get you a bunch of cool Calling Cards in the game to customize your profile.  To unlock each Call of Duty Blackout Dark Ops Challenge, you will need to perform different actions on the map.  Some require that you get a certain amount of kills, kill players in a certain way, or just find different Easter Eggs around the map.

Unfortunately, you won’t get any notifications in the game when you complete these challenges.  You’ll have to wait until after the Blackout match to see whether you’ve completed one or not.  In the after action merit report you’ll see points in the challenge column if you’ve completed it or not.

You’ll also see that you’ve unlocked the associated calling card for the Dark Ops challenges that you’ve completed during a match.
