All Black Ops 4 Operation First Strike Blackout Items

Blackout's Black Market
Call of Duty's Black Market, an in-game shop for cosmetic items, has returned in Black Ops 4, and there are already dozens of unlockables to earn. Many of these items are for Blackout, Black Ops 4's battle royale mode, and you'll earn them by simply playing the game.
In Black Market, the Contraband Stream tracks your progression towards each new item. The available items are swapped out for new ones with each seasonal change, which takes place approximately every two months. Operation First Strike, the first collection of items, is going on right now, and it includes new Blackout calling cards, emotes, signature weapons, Specialist skins, and tags.
The entire assortment of cosmetics included in Operation First Strike are listed in the following gallery. Click through to see everything you can earn.
The Black Market will also experience limited-time events, which offer opportunities for unlocking special cosmetic items. The first event started on October 20 for PS4 and begins on October 27 for Xbox One and PC. It will allow you to earn Halloween-themed gear and skins. In November, the Black Market will update to support real-money purchases.
We think Black Ops 4 is great. In our Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 review, GameSpot reviews editor Kallie Plagge gave the game an 8/10, writing, "Black Ops 4 isn't short on content, and its three main modes are substantial. Multiplayer introduces more tactical mechanics without forcing you into them, and it largely strikes a good balance. Zombies has multiple deep, secret-filled maps to explore, though its returning characters don't hold up and prove distracting. Finally, Blackout pushes Call of Duty in an entirely new direction, making use of aspects from both multiplayer and Zombies for a take on the battle royale genre that stands on its own. Sure, there isn't a traditional single-player campaign, but with the depth and breadth of what is there, Black Ops 4 doesn't need it."
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
