Operations Challenges - Level 10
Operations challenges mostly involve aspects of the game modes themselves. These include such things as winning games, coming in at the top of the leaderboard, and planting bombs. The tips and tricks below will help you accomplish all of these challenges. This set of challenges is unlocked at level 10.
Free-for-all Victor I, II, and III - Place in the top three in 3, 5, and 10 Free-For-All matches. - Worth 500, 1,000, and 2,500 EXP respectively. Challenge I unlocks the Lone Wolf title, Challenge II unlocks the The Feared title, and Challenge III unlocks the joystick emblem. The only way to complete these challenges is to play Free-for-all. Camping, unless you chose a high-traffic spot, is unlikely to net you the number of kills you need. Learn the maps, learn where people like to hide, and patrol in circles killing everything that moves. Killstreaks such as Harrier, Chopper Gunner, AC-130, and Pavelow are good choices. Precision Airstrikes and Stealth Bombers are unlikely to net more than two kills unless you're lucky, as any players close to each other will kill each other. Nukes are hard to get, as you need 25 out of the 30 kills in a match.
Team Player I, II, and III - Win 5, 15, and 30 team deathmatch matches. - Worth 500, 1,000, and 2,500 EXP respectively. Challenge I unlocks the Team Player title, Challenge II unlocks the Blood Brothers title, and Challenge III unlocks the bleeding skull emblem. To complete these challenges you need to be on the winning team of a team deathmatch match. This includes the team deathmatch mode in ground war. You don't need to be at the top of the scoreboard, only on the winning team, so you can actually make progress toward this challenge by joining a match almost over.

Search and Destroy Victor I, II, and III - Win 5, 15, and 30 matches of Search and Destroy. - Worth 500, 1,000, and 2,500 EXP respectively. Challenge I unlocks the Destroyer title, Challenge II unlocks the Explosive Ordinance title, and Challenge III unlocks the grinning bomb emblem. These, obviously, need to be obtained through playing Search and Destroy. There are two ways to win a round in this game mode. The first is to successfully plant the bomb (on offense) or disarm the planted bomb (on defense). The second is to kill the entire enemy team, as this game mode has no respawning. With no respawning, it's advised to use stealth classes and play cautiously. Defend your points carefully, and assault them steadily. Eventually you'll win enough matches for the challenges.
MVP Team Deathmatch - Be the highest scorer overall in Team Deathmatch. - Worth 1,000 EXP. Unlocks the Public Enemy title and the Ghost emblem. The easiest way to complete this challenge is to be entirely offensive. Kill as many players as you can and die as few times as you can. Any good offensive killstreak will net you a number of kills if you position it over a high-traffic area. Alternatively, you can play a class with a riot shield and a stinger missile with scavenger. Play defensively on the front lines. You gain points for absorbing damage and deflecting bullets, whether they're fired from air support, sentry guns, or enemy players. You also gain points for when a teammate kills a player that was shooting at your shield. On top of that, you gain points for shooting down enemy air support with your stinger, including UAVs and Counter-UAVs. Top this off with a few shield or grenade kills, and you may have a chance of being in the top of the score with few kills.
Hardcore Team Player I, II, and III - Win 1, 5, and 15 matches of Hardcore Team Deathmatch. - Worth 500, 1,000, and 2,500 EXP respectively. Challenge I unlocks the Get Real title, Challenge II unlocks the Hardcore Only title, and Challenge III unlocks red devil emblem. This challenge is just like the Team Deathmatch Victor challenges, only you have to play Hardcore Team Deathmatch. These games are higher stakes, with lower player health and friendly fire enabled. Be careful and move slowly, hunting your enemies, or camp and try not to be spotted. These games rarely are ended in score victories; instead they end when time runs out. Only running wildly around the map will end it with a score victory, usually for the other team. Be careful with your killstreaks, especially air strikes; it's possible to kill your teammates.
Sabotage Victor I, II, and III - Win 5, 20, and 50 Sabotage matches. - Worth 500, 1,000, and 2,500 EXP respectively. Challenge I unlocks the It's Sabotage title, Challenge II unlocks the Intergalactic title, and Challenge III unlocks the bloody tic-tac-toe board emblem. The Sabotage game mode is like Search and Destroy with respawning. Additionally the bomb is neutral at the start and placed in the middle of the map. One strategy is to use a SMG-Marathon-Lightweight class to run faster than other players to grab the bomb. Most of the time enemies will be camping the bomb site; so you must use caution when you approach. Winning these games is more a matter of persistence and speed than it is of tactics. Most teams will treat it like team deathmatch, allowing you a sometimes free shot at the bomb and target. Winning the 50 matches required takes patience more than anything else.
