ACOG Longshots – Get 40 Longshot Kills while using an ACOG Optic – Rank 59 (6,000 XP)
First, you need to equip a weapon with an ACOG Optic; here’s a quick list of the three common ones across all weapons:
· Scout Combat Optic
· VLK Rogue
· Cronen C480 Pro Optic
Check your weapon for specific ACOG optics that also count towards this challenge, such as the one Raines has above on the Al Rukh SMG blueprint, a weapon we’ll revisit in our Gunsmith Custom Creation).
Next, Longshot distances are tied to specific weapon categories, with Marksman Rifles sharing the same distance as Assault Rifles and LMGs. That includes the new SP-R 208, which can one-shot enemies to the head, neck, or upper-chest at any range just with its default ammo.
I recommend using one of those three optics on this rifle for Warzone play. Those who play Modern Warfare Multiplayer can also head to Hardcore modes, where all player health is reduced significantly, and use Sidearm like the .357, which is powerful enough to one-shot enemies in these modes and has a much shorter Longshot distance overall.
Equipment Dismantler – Destroy 25 pieces of enemy equipment – Rank 65 (9,000 XP)
I covered this one in the 44th Rank Up Report for Season Five, but to reiterate: use the Spotter Perk and head to building-heavy locales in Warzone, such as Downtown or, based on my drops lately, Barakett Promenade.
Trophy Systems also count towards this challenge; because seasoned players frequently put these on vehicles, shoot them off at any chance you get to weaken these small-yet-mighty rocket and equipment interceptors.
Again, like the prior season, you may want to wait until the Spotter Officer Challenge is unlocked at Rank 147, as its objective, which is to “Equip the Spotter Perk and Destroy a total of 7 Enemy Killstreaks, Equipment, and Vehicles” (1,500 XP), overlaps with this one.
Cluster Strike – Call in the Cluster Strike Killstreak 25 times – Rank 85 (12,000 XP)
Although Multiplayer Operators can throw on Hardline and rack these up through four Killstreaks (usually aided by Personal Radars and UAVs), I found this easier to complete within Warzone thanks to Supply Run Contracts.
Specifically, drop in on Supply Run Contract, pick it up, locate a vehicle, speed over to the target Buy Station, and get a heavily discounted Cluster Strike within the first few minutes of play. At this point, I’d keep playing and rack up Cash in $3,000 increments – either through Kills, Supply Box scavenging or Contracts – to keep the Cluster Strikes coming in droves.
