These challenges are unlike any others in the game, as they do not reveal what the challenge requirements are until after you have completed it, which of course makes completing them a lot harder.
On top of that, the challenges themselves are deliberately difficult and obscure, but should you complete them you are handsomely rewarded with some very rare and good looking calling cards.
Although these challenges do not count towards your total challenge completion percentage, true completionists will want to do them all the same, but be warned – they are very testing.
You can see a full list of every Dark Ops challenge in Multiplayer, Blackout and Zombies below, and what you need to do to complete them.
