Hero specialist (gold) gear in Multiplayer

Unlock all heads and bodies for all nine specialists by completing all their challenges to unlock the Hero challenges for all nine specialists. Successfully complete the Hero challenge for a specialist to unlock their Hero gear, which is gold. The Hero challenges are not too difficult to complete. Here is a screenshot of the front and back of the gold Hero armor for Ruin.

Extra XP in Multiplayer

Use a weapon that does at least 30+ damage per shot in Hardcode mode to get "One Shot One Kill" medals worth 100 XP each.

Easy "Cyberpunk Body" challenge in Multiplayer

To unlock the Cyberpunk Body for the Prophet specialist, you must twice rapidly kill (within approximately 3.5 seconds) 2 enemies shortly after using Glitch. This is normally a very difficult challenge. To easily complete it, play in Hardpoint or Safeguard. Use the Overclock and Fast Hands perks and carry at least one frag grenade. Wait for a few enemies to crowd into a smaller area, then cook a grenade. Throw it at the enemies shortly before it explodes, then immediately use Glitch. You should be able to quickly complete this challenge using this method.

Recommended Supply Drop in Multiplayer

After the recent update to the Black Market, it is now better to buy Rare Supply Drops since you are not only guaranteed a Rare item, but you also have a better chance at getting Legendary and Epic items compared to the Common Supply Drop. You also get Cryptokeys returned back to you with each Rare Supply Drop opened.

Mannequin Zombies Easter Egg in "Nuk3town" map

First, download the bonus "Nuk3town" DLC map. Then, start a Multiplayer Custom Game, alone or with another player, in the "Nuk3town" map. Once the game begins, shoot all the heads off the mannequins around the map in under two minutes. If done correctly, the mannequins will disappear briefly and then reappear as zombies. The zombies will chase you and keep spawning. If you die, you will keep respawning. If you fail, you can quit the game, restart, and try again.

All Dark Ops challenges

The Dark Ops challenges are hidden challenges in Multiplayer and Zombies mode. They are not revealed until they have been completed. When a Dark Ops challenge is completed, you will earn a special Calling Card. If you want to try to complete all Dark Ops challenges, it is recommended to complete the "Fresh Start" Dark Ops challenge first, as it requires you to do a "Fresh Start" stats reset after you enter Prestige mode. The "Fresh Start" resets everything in Multiplayer except items obtained from the Black Market. Thus, if you have completed other Dark Ops challenges before completing the "Fresh Start" Dark Ops challenge, you will lose all progress made with the other Dark Ops challenges.

Skipping rounds in Shadows Of Evil

Use the following trick to advance to rounds 5, 10, or 15 without killing any zombies. When starting, you will spawn in a narrow alleyway. From this position, face the junction and look at the walkway above to find the Shadow Man. Hit the Shadow Man five times with your default weapon or any other wall weapon to advance to round 5 with some points scored. You can shoot him five more times to advance to round 10 with more points. Shoot him five more times to advance to round 15, and get even more points. However, after shooting him 15 times, he will disappear.

All rituals and Pack-A-Punch machine in Shadows Of Evil

Complete all rituals in the Shadows Of Evil map in Zombie mode to unlock the Pack-A-Punch machine for upgrading weapons. You can complete this solo and by the end of round 5 or 6. There are five collectible items you must find (Summoning Key, Golden Fountain Pen, Badge, Championship Belt, and Hair Piece). These items are used to start the five rituals. To get "The Beginning Of The End" trophy, you only need to do the first four rituals. The fifth and final ritual unlocks the Pack-A-Punch machine. You have to do all of this in one playthrough. You will also get the "From The Shadows" trophy along the way. When doing it solo, the order of the rituals does not matter, but in co-op it is important to note that you can only hold one collectible at a time (not all five at once). This means in co-op you must do a ritual before you can pick up the next collectible.

Building Rocket Shield in Shadows Of Evil

To build the Rocket Shield, you must find three parts. Each part is in a different district -- one in the Canal District, one in the Footlight District, and one in the Waterfront District. You only need to open the first gate to each of these districts, then use the demon form to activate the power and unlock the stairs. The exact location of the parts slightly varies on each playthrough, but they will always be in the same district in the upstairs area. They always look the same; go to the locations in the video and run around the area until you see a button prompt to pick up the object. Once you have collected all three parts, open the second gate in the Waterfront District to find a workbench where you must assemble the shield (only takes a few seconds). You can activate the burst with R2. To get the "Strike!" trophy, wait for a large group of 10+ zombies, then use the burst to kill them.

Getting Widow's Wine perk in Shadows Of Evil

To get the Widow's Wine, you must open a portal in the Canal District. Transform into the demon to break open a door in the Canal. Behind the door is the portal that leads to a new area. Widow's Wine is actually a perk, not just a grenade. After leaving the portal, kill the ghosts and activate the power to the Widow's Wine machine. You can then buy the perk; it costs 4,000 points. It allows you to throw special grenades that damage and slow enemies. When you are being attacked, it automatically freezes the zombies and damages them over time until they die. The perk is limited to a few uses per round. Knifing enemies also has a chance of ensnaring them for a while. To get "The Spider And The Fly" trophy, you can either throw a Widow's Wine grenade yourself or just let a large group of zombies attack you. Odds are you will get trapped by zombies in high level rounds, and the perk will automatically get activated and you will get the trophy. The zombies get damaged over time and will die automatically without you doing anything.

Summoning Civil Protector and Fuse locations in Shadows Of Evil

To summon the Civil Protector, you first must find three fuses and activate the fuse box. Each fuse is in a different district -- one in the Canal District, one in the Footlight District, and one in the Waterfront District. They are all on the upper floor, and you must open two gates in each district to reach them. They glow blue. Their exact location slightly varies on each playthrough, but they are always in the same area, on the upper floor. Go through the portal in Canal District to reach the fuse box. Once it is active, you can summon the Civil Protector. There are four districts, and it must be activated in each one to get the "Beat CoP" trophy. Each activation costs 2,000 points. You can only have one active at a time. Wait for the robot to explode (takes 2-3 rounds), then you can activate the next. It will probably take you until round 13 to activate them all. In Co-Op mode, you must summon all four Civil Protectors by yourself. It does not count if another player summons him, but it also does not void the trophy either, as you can simply reactivate the box later and summon him yourself.

Gobblegum flavors in Shadows Of Evil

Gobblegum is obtained from a vending machine and provides temporary boosts. Gobblegum vending machines can be found in each of the three districts and require points. However, the machines will not always work and will dispense flavors randomly. Before starting a match, you can customize the Gobblegum flavors which will appear by selecing the "Gobblegum Packs" option. As you level up, you will unlock additional flavors. The following is a list of all available flavors and their effects:

    Aftertaste: Retain perks when downed.
    Alchemical Antithesis: 1 ammo for every 10 points.
    Always Done Swiftly: Similar to quickdraw.
    Danger Closest: No explosive damage.
    Dead Of Nuclear Winter: Nuke power-up spawn.
    Ephemeral Enhancement: Upgrade current weapon.
    Firing On All Cylinders: Shoot while running.
    Immolation Liquidation: Fire Sale power-up spawn.
    Impatient: Unknown.
    I'm Feelin' Lucky: Spawn with random power-up.
    In Plain Sight: No threat for 10 seconds.
    Killing Time: Freeze enemies for 20 seconds.
    Kill Joy: Spawn with Insta-Kill power-up.
    Licensed Contractor: Spawn with Carpenter power-up.
    Lucky Crit: Unknown.
    Now You See Me: All enemies target players.
    One For The Road: Extra perk slot.
    On The House: Random perks.
    Perkaholic: Get all perks.
    Phoenix Up: Revive everyone and get perks.
    Pop Shocks: Melee deals electric damage.
    Private Eyes: Mark nearby enemies.
    Respin Cycle: Reroll mystery box.
    Stock Option: No reload.
    Sword flay: 5x damage on melee.
    Wall Power: Upgrade next weapon.
    Who's Keeping Score: Spawn with double-points power-up.

Easy "Parasite-Seeing" trophy

The parasites always spawn in Round 5. They are yellow insects flying around and shooting at you. Go to the train station in Round 5 and ride the train (costs 500 points to activate). While you are on the train, you must kill five parasites to get the "Parasite-Seeing" trophy.

Easy "Sorry, We're DEAD" trophy

There are four stores in the Junction District starting area after opening the first gate. Kill ten zombies in any of them to get the "Sorry, We're DEAD" trophy. You can shoot them or use the knife. The ten kills do not have to be from one store -- they count across all stores. Always repair the barricades so you have more time to kill the zombies before they leave the store. Run from store to store and look if there is a zombie. You should get the trophy in round 6 or 7, as the spawns are a bit random.

Easy "The Beginning Of The End" trophy

Use the "Skipping rounds in Shadows Of Evil" trick to skip to round 15. You will start round 15 with 16,500 points, which is more than enough points to open everything if you have four players. Keep a zombie alive at the end of the first wave, then complete the first four rituals to get "The Beginning Of The End" trophy on the first wave.
