If you find that simply outwitting terrorists and guards is not enough for you in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, then you might want to turn your attention to the challenges section of the gameplay.

There are challenges for each type of gameplay, such as the Assault, Panther and Ghost challenges.

Then we have the Co-op challenges which require a friend in order to complete and Spies vs. Mercs challenges. There are even some gear challenges that require you to get a certain number of kills and takedowns with a particular piece of equipment.
