How to Unlock all Black Ops 4 Blackout Characters

Published

on

Blackout characters in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 allow you to bring some of the most recognizable faces from Call of Duty into this Battle Royal mode. But, you have to unlock them first, and it’s not easy to do.

We’ll show you how to unlock the Black Ops 4 Blackout characters or skins that you can choose from instead of using the standard skin that half the map is covered with.

If you buy the Black Ops Pass you can get Shadow Man free right now and three other skins, but you don’t need to pay money to unlock the other Black Ops 4 Blackout skins.

When you play Blackout you will need to complete challenges to unlock the characters, some are as easy as collecting a few items around the map. Others require more complex tasks and then a win.

We’ll show you how you can unlock the 29 Blackout characters, and when possible give some tips to help you along the way. The characters are split into three groups;

  • Blackout Characters
  • Zombies Characters
  • Multiplayer Characters

Not all challenges are unlocked yet, so you won’t be able to complete all of these yet. Look at the character in the selection screen to see if the mission is available or unavailable before you take it on. We may not see some of the items appear in the map until a Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 update arrives to add them in.

How to Unlock Blackout Characters

Some of these challenges aren’t available yet, but we have rumors that tell us what you will need to do. The Blackout characters unlock by getting a special item and then finishing or winning a match. Most of these unlock as you level up.

To level up in Black Ops 4 Blackout you need to earn merits. You get;

  • 10 Merits for a Kill
  • 50 Merits for Top 15
  • 50 Merits for Top 10
  • 50 Merits for Top 5
  • 100 Merits for Winning
  • 25-100 Merits for challenges

It’s not clear if we will see any Blackout 2XP events that allow you to double up on Merits and level up faster, or if the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 2XP is staying in Multiplayer.

You can’t Prestige Blackout like you can in the multiplayer game, but if you hit level 80, you will be able to go one more level to Prestige.

How to Unlock Zombies Blackout Characters

You can also unlock an array of Zombies characters to use in Blackout. These are typically Zombies related tasks, and thankfully you don’t need to win the match for these to work out. Some of these are still rumored, so proceed with caution.

How to Unlock Multiplayer Blackout Characters

You can also unlock the multiplayer characters from Black Ops 4. You need to get something relating to their Specialist options and you can then complete an objective.

  • Get kills with the War Machine Grenade Launcher
  • Finish in the top 15

If some of these prove too difficult, we could see small tweaks to characters. There’s a chance that we will see other characters added as rewards for seasons and special objectives while Blackout grows over the next year.
