About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Call of Duty Dark Ops Challenges guide contains a list of all known Dark Ops Challenges currently in the game and will be updated over time.

In addition to Blackout’s host of normal challenges, Black Ops 4 is also home to special Dark Ops challenges that only unlock when you complete them. They cover all three modes in the game, Multiplayer, Blackout and Zombies, with almost every single one requiring some pretty elusive objective.

It’s not been long since Black Ops 4’s release, so many of these Dark Ops challenges are still being discovered. However, we’ve put together a guide that contains all of the objectives that have been unearthed by the community so far, and we’ll continue adding to it as time goes by.

While Dark Ops objectives don’t contribute to your challenge completion total, they do reward you with Merits or EXP, and unique Calling Cards that you can't get anywhere else.

Dark Ops Challenges List

UPDATE - 23rd October 2018: Added many more Dark Ops challenges to the list!
