Call of Duty: Black Ops Pro Perk Challenge Guide


Offense Medals: Get 10 Offensive Medals by killing enemies near their objective.

You could accomplish this over several games of Domination by killing enemies who are trying to capture one of your areas. Or you could do it the fun and easy way, and that’s by playing CTF. As long as you are holding the enemy flag, any kill you get counts as an Offensive Medal. Booyah.



Throwbacks: Throw back 5 enemy Frag Grenades.

We found this to be one of the hardest challenges to complete. You’ll need to throw back 5 enemy frag grenades. Too bad a lot of players prefer Semtex. Fortunately you don’t have to be effective with (or even survive) the throwback – as long as you get your hands on the enemy grenade it counts. We found a couple of decent methods for completing this challenge if you’re willing to sacrifice your K/D ratio for a few rounds –

-Method 1: Camping up high

Camp in any sniper-post area like the high tower on the firing range, and keep your gun trained on the entrance while crouching or prone. Fire a few rounds into the air and it won’t be long before the other players know you’re up there. With the only entrance locked down you’ll be bombarded by grenades in no time. Just pray some of them will be frags. The normal flak jacket perk will protect you from most of the Semtex and crossbow explosions while you wait.

-Method 2: Put yourself in the midst of it

During a game of demolition many players will toss grenades at the target boxes before getting a clear view. If you stay low near the box you may have a chance at throwing back a grenade before you’re made into Swiss cheese. Put down a smoke bomb to increase your chances – enemies are more likely to cautiously throw a grenade into the smoke cloud instead of rushing in and randomly unloading bullets into something they can’t see. You can do something similar during Domination, but you won’t have the box as cover.



One Shot Kills: Get 50 One Shot, One Kill Medals

To make this easier for yourself, play in Hardcore mode. You don’t have to aim as carefully when your enemies have diminished health (anywhere will score a kill), and you can use any of the sniper rifles. Note that you can only get the medals if you are using a sniper rifle (FAL and M14 wouldn’t work). If you’re not used to using sniper scopes, throw an ACOG sight on your sniper rifle.



Grenade Multi-Kills: Get 1 multi-kill with Frag or Semtex.

If you’re trying to complete this challenge we recommend you equip the scavenger perk, that way you can continuously pick up grenades from fallen enemies as you try over and over to get a multi-kill. It’s also a bit easier to pull off with Frags since you can cook them before throwing. At least two kills at once are required to complete the challenge.

-Method 1 – Blind throwing

Yep, just aim skyward and let it rip. On a small map (especially Nuketown) you can toss Frags all the way over the other side of the map. On team events there’s a decent chance you’ll catch a couple of enemies moving together along the sides of the houses if you throw a grenade ASAP once the round begins.

-Method 2 – Go for the objectives

In Domination, the B objective is usually the most hotly contested due to its central location. Make yourself a distant observer and chuck a grenade at the enemies when they swarm the objective.



Quick Melee: Melee two enemies consecutively within 5 seconds.

If you’re having trouble getting this one, there is an alternative running around like a psychopath swinging wildly. Equip the following: the Lightweight perk, the Marathon perk, the Ballistic knife, and the tactical insertion. Join a game of Ground War (preferably Domination) where there will be plenty of enemies to kill. The idea is to flank one of the areas that the enemy is protecting, preferably the B objective. You can also get clever and drop your tactical insertion point around an objective while your team has control, run to somewhere safe, then intentionally die while the enemy has control to spawn right in their midst. As you can see from the above screenshot, this tactic worked very well. Note that the melee strike with the Ballistic Knife has a much quicker recovery time than the normal knife.

Hip Fire Kills: Get 150 hip fire kills using Steady Aim.

This is quite difficult to pull off in Core mode – it’s much easier to do it in Hardcore mode. The lower health means it takes fewer hits to bring an enemy down, so grab a powerful SMG (AK47u), dual-wield some of the smaller SMGs, or use a shotgun and have some fun.



Equipment Shot: Destroy 1 piece of enemy equipment through a wall.

A fairly easy challenge when you set your mind to accomplishing it. Most players lay claymores just inside doorways. When you manage to spot one before actually stepping on it, move so that the doorframe is between your gun and the claymore and fire away. To make it even easier, equip the Hacker perk so that you can more easily spot mines through walls.

    There will always be modders just let them do what they do and enjoy your killing spree
  • LewisR - June 12, 2011 12:55 p.m.

    Call of Duty 4 anyone?
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - December 20, 2010 12:15 a.m.

    Just a second thought: I hate MW2 because it's full of modders, who should all go to Hell. Even if it wasn't, though, Black Ops is a lot more realistic, even if a few parts are messed up.
  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - December 20, 2010 12:13 a.m.

    I destroyed a piece of equipment through a wall by accident. I would also say that destroying a sentry gun is very hard, I've just been lucky and ran into random ones.
  • mrmorozov987 - December 15, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    @slowdrum13 Yeah, what Overlord said. It's about actual skill, not an arms race to see who can get a tatical nuke first.
  • Abe504 - December 15, 2010 10:32 p.m.

    its a good game but just lags so much, with every new patch it gets worse and worse, like they trying to get people to go back to reach or bad company 2
  • Overlord153 - December 15, 2010 9:35 p.m.

    I don't get why you all are hating that killstreaks don't stack on to your kill count. I got tired of seeing Harrier strike then chopper gunner then tactical nuke. Personally I think it's better without killstreaks stacking onto your kill count.
  • slowdrum13 - December 15, 2010 8:26 p.m.

    and gatorfan, i agree with you. even when black ops is actually not broken, mw2 is a lot more fun. black ops just seems dull and slow by comparison. and killstreaks don't stack? wtf?
  • slowdrum13 - December 15, 2010 8:24 p.m.

    it'd be nice if i could even play online. yesterday's patch 1.04 completely f'd up the matchmaking and now i get dropped connections on around 60 to 70% of games. I'll give them one more day and then its byby black pos.
  • razorwiretensho - December 15, 2010 6:56 p.m.

    I love all the people that hop on the "Call of Duty sucks" bandwagon. I bet half haven't even played it. There's a reason that's it's the seventh best selling game of all time. And that's because CoD rocks.
  • skikoz99 - December 15, 2010 9:17 a.m.

    black ops sucks big D%#K infinity ward makes a better game
  • gatorfan122394 - December 15, 2010 4:50 a.m.

    I personally think black ops is a lot less fun than mw2
  • HankVenture - December 15, 2010 2:04 a.m.

    Nice I will use this for some of those I don't do that often, But I think you should of included was the Pro Version does as well. I didn't read all the way through so if it's at the end or something then sweet
  • loonyman978 - December 15, 2010 12:38 a.m.

    awwwww, i've just done almost all of these over the week. I only need to get the throwback grenades one for the flak jacket and im done. thanks for the tips!
  • somerandomchap - December 15, 2010 12:37 a.m.

    @RicePuddingUK, Did you actually read this article? It's not telling you what you have to do, it's telling you how to do it easily. As in helping hints.
  • Killshot - December 15, 2010 12:37 a.m.

    Watching kind of makes me want to play modern warfare 2 again
  • RicePuddingUK - December 15, 2010 12:22 a.m.

    Meh, Black Ops, honestly why is this guide needed? It's not hard to unlock all this? It's linear as a traintrack.
