Black Ops 4 Specialists HQ Missions Guide – Classes, Skirmish Missions

Owing to the lack of the main campaign in Black Ops 4, you can still carry out cinematic missions that give you a brief idea about the Specialists that you will be playing as in the different modes of the game. In our Black Ops 4 Specialists HQ Missions Guide, we have included all Skirmish Test Missions and the respective maps you will be playing them on as different Specialists.

Black Ops 4 Specialists HQ Missions

Specialists are class-based characters that are playable in the Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Mode or the new to the series, the Blackout Battle Royale Mode. There are 10 Specialists in BLOPS4.

In addition to the standard ones, there are some unique Specialists which are only unlocked if you carry out certain Character Missions.

The HQ Missions serve as some sort of tutorials that introduce you to the Specialist you will be playing as.

You will get a hang of the many mechanics including the use of the Specialists’ unique weapon of choice, their movement and some bits of lore about them.

At the end of the completion of these tutorials, you gain access to the Skirmish Missions of each specialist that you can try out at regular and veteran difficulties.


However, do note that Skirmish Missions are exclusive to a particular mode and map for each character.
