Black Ops 4 Dark Ops Challenges - Blackout
9 Dark Ops Challenges can be found in Blackout mode, and here's how to complete all of them:
Back in the Ground: Kill 100 Zombies
The areas west of Array and east of Asylum are two good locations to find zombies to eliminate.
Baller: Shoot a Basket (Location: Estates)
Southwest of Estates towards the road you'll find some basketball hoops, so interact with a ball and try to score some points.
Fist Fighter: Kill an enemy using only your fists
Best attempted at the start of a round before enemies collect weapons - or follow the helicopter to the end of the ride and pick off anyone left idling.
Open the Blast Doors: Open the Blast Doors at the Fracking Tower (Location: Fracking Tower)
North of the Blast Doors you should see two cylindrical towers with a walkway between them - in the middle of the walkway is a button to open the doors.
Practice Makes Perfect: Shoot a bullseye at the Firing Range from 90 meters (Location: Firing Range)
Targets can be found in the northwest of the Firing Range - using a scoped long range weapon will make this easier to complete.
Red Light, Green Light: Find and be the first to loot the underwater supply stash at the Cargo Docks (Location: Cargo Docks)
At either end of the ship in the docks is a buoy floating in the water, and the underwater supply stashes can be found below them.
Respect Your Elders: Pay your respects to Tanbor Fudgely (Location: east of Fracking Tower)
South of The Anvil boxing club, on the coast directly east from Fracking Tower near the bridge towards Turbine, you'll find a memorial - stand on the stone in front of it and hold the action button until you bow.
Stay Tuned: Activate the Emergency Broadcast (Location: Array)
Inside the main building of Array, look for a console with a green button to activate and trigger the Emergency Broadcast.

On the other side of the road west of Array you'll find a diner, with a jukebox you can activate by walking up to it and interacting.
