Black Ops Cold War Dark Ops: How To Complete All Challenges and Rewards

Dark Ops in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War hide a lot of things behind ‘Classifies’ screens until it’s completed, and it makes them hard to be solved on purpose. If you are not entertained by a campaign with puzzle-solving elements and a web of intrigue then it will be good for you to know that Raven Software and Treyarch have inserted a bonus suite of challenges which you complete in each of the three game modes.

You can complete these bonus objectives in Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies mode, but you will have to go to the Dark Ops tab to complete them. In this guide, we have written all the conditions required to unlock these bonuses for each mode, so that you can plan out your game time a little better. If you complete each of the challenges, you will get three Dark Ops Master animated calling cards as a reward for all of your hard work.

Completion of these challenges doesn’t have any impact on your overall completion rate for the game.

How To Complete All Black Ops Cold War Campaign Dark Ops Challenges

You can easily complete and unlock these challenges (if you know what you are doing ahead of time). You can complete these Black Ops Cold War Campaign Dark Ops challenges at any difficulty setting, and if you want to replay a level to complete the challenge you can boot up the mission easily from the evidence board.

Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Dark Ops challenges are very problematic for all the completionists out there, because you have to be a hero PvP portion of the game to complete most of the tasks. Completing all these Dark Ops Challenges will take time, even if you are a pro in multiplayer mode. You will get a calling card and either a 5,000 or 10,000 XP boost as a reward by completing each of these challenges.
