Black Ops 4 Dark Ops are secret challenges you can unlock throughout the game.
Each of the game's core three modes - Multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout - have bonus Challenges that only unlock when you actually complete them. Unless, of course, you know them before hand - which is where this page comes in.
Of course, with Black Ops 4 only just being released, this is a work-in-progress - but here are all the Black Ops 4 Dark Ops objectives we've found so far.
Black Ops 4 Dark Ops objectives explained
These are mostly pretty standard tasks, from getting a specific amount of wins or using certain weapons and items a specific number of times. Our Blackout Challenges page will give you an idea of what these look like.
But alongside these are Dark Ops. These are secret objectives you can complete to give you XP and Merits, but only reveal themselves in-game when you complete them.
Most of these are require you to do unusual tasks. Not all of them are particularly difficult, just things you probably would never thing to do ordinarily - such as playing the dukebox in a specific building in Blackout, for example:
It should be noted these Dark Ops objectives do not contribute to your 100% Challenge total, so aren't essential for those wanting those specific unlocks. But you do get Merits or XP and a card for your trouble - just like regular Challenges.
Black Ops 4 Dark Ops objectives list we know about so far
Below are the Dark Ops objectives we know about so far. Each of the game's three modes has them, and since Black Ops 4 has only just released, it may take a little while for them all - but hopefully it'll get you started.
