Learn all there is to know about Challenges and Dark Ops Challenges in Blackout!

We've set our eyes on Call of Duty's new Battle Royale, and we've got a full guide with all a complete Blackout Challenges List and a look at the Dark Ops Challenges!

A lot of these challenges will be completed while you play the game. However, you'll want to try and focus on some of them just to get them completed. Most of these have multiple tiers you will need to complete, if it is a tier you will get 25 merits per tier finished. Merits are the experience system in Blackout. As you level up, you can unlock different Characters that you can use which essentially are skins. Learn more about the merit system with our Blackout Fast Leveling Guide!

Dark Ops Challenges List

These are hidden challenges and are only unlocked when you do a certain task. You get a Calling Card and 25 merits for completing each of these. We'll be listing them all below, but keep in mind that this is a work in progress. If you find any that we don't have on the list, please let us know in the comments!

Back in the Ground

Kill 100 Zombies

Not too hard, just time consuming. Head to our Blackout Zombies Locations & Guide for more information.


Shoot a Basket.

Head to the Estates part of the map and locate the basketball court. You should find a ball there, grab it and shoot it into the basket!

Fist Fighter

Kill an enemy using only your fists.

All you need to do is punch someone to death. You can't have a gun in your inventory, and if you grab the Brawler perk this will be a whole lot easier to do. Try to sneak up on someone in the early game and punch their lights out!

Open the Blast Doors

Open the Blast Doors at Fracking Tower.

Practice Makes Perfect

Shoot a bullseye at the Firing Range from 90 meters.

You'll see a bunch of targets in the Firing Range portion of the map. Get yourself a sniper rifle and shoot one in the bullseye!

Red Light, Green Light

Find and be the first to loot the underwater supply stash at the Cargo Docks.

Respect Your Elders

Pay your respects to Tanbor Fudgely.

Zombie Jams

Activate the Jukebox at the Diner.

All you need to do is head to the diner that's to the west of Array. You'll find the bright orange and green Jukebox inside the diner, and you can activate it and complete the challenge.
