Our Call of Duty Blackout Challenges page explains how the challenges system works and lists all of the Professional, Survivalist, Heroics and Vehicular challenges in the game.

When it comes to the challenges system in Blackout, turns out it's actually pretty simple stuff. Unlike Fortnite's weekly refreshers, Blackout simply has a static list of challenges to tick off as you play the game. As you'd expect, these challenges require things like eliminations with certain weapons, getting wins, equipping certain items and the like.

Many of them are multi-stage affairs, but they tend to boil down to tackling the same objective again, but to a greater degree of achievement. Instead of earning 10 kills, you’ll need to earn 20, for example. It’s the sort of stuff you’re likely to complete naturally over time, but there are quite a few which you will likely want to specifically target for those juicy rewards.

Completing challenges earns you Merits which’ll go towards ranking up your Blackout level and ultimately unlocking some neat Blackout-themed cosmetics. All in all though, these challenges boil down to game time, and you’ll almost certainly work through them without even realising it.

Without further ado, then, here are all the challenges in Blackout.

It's worth mentioning that this list is likely to grow over time as the game evolves. We'll endeavour to keep this page bang up to date, so keep this page bookmarked for all the latest updates when they happen!

Did you know there are hidden challenges in Black Ops 4 that grant unique rewards? Our Dark Ops challenges guide explains how they work and detail the various ways you can go about completing them.
