How to Get Specialist Outfits in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
Like most multiplayer games these days, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 knows that winning is as much about flair as it is skill. And if you want to stand out at the end of every match, not only do want to get the best play, you also want to have the best outfit/skin.
As of right now, there's no in-game shop to buy outfits or skins for your Specialists. While there are bonus Black Ops skins for those who bought the Deluxe Edition and higher, there's only actually one "unique" outfit in the game: the bonus Day of the Dead skin.
If you're wondering how to equip the Dia De Los Muertes outfit in Black Ops 4, it's actually a pretty easy process -- even if it is a little unclear.
How to Equip Skins and Outfits in Black Ops 4
First things first: Every outfit except the Dia De Los Muertes skin is easily selectable and doesn't require you follow any special steps to equip (these include pre-order skins and Black Ops skins).
Second things second: The Day of the Dead costume can only be equipped to one Specialist. There is no way -- whatsoever -- to change your choice after you've finalized your selection.
Once you hit Level 7 in multiplayer, you'll be able to personalize your Specialists. This is also when you'll unlock your promotional offers and all skins and outfits, including the Dia De Los Muertes outfit and the Black Ops skins.
For the Day of the Dead equip, YouTuber PaRaDoX AgonY has a quick video showing you how to actually apply the costume to your selected Specialist. Here are the quick and easy steps:
- Redeem offer when the prompt pops up
- Select your Specialist
- Select "Progress and Unlocks" from the Barracks tab
- Select your Specialist from the list
- Select Outfits
- Select the Day of the Dead skin
You can also follow steps 3-5 to select your Black Ops skins and warpaints.
What Happens If I Hit "Back" Before Selecting My Specialist?
If you accidentally hit "Back" before choosing which Specialist you want the Day of the Dead skin applied to, you should be able to follow steps 3-5 above and get prompted again. However, as some players have pointed out, that is not always the case.
- Reset the game (or console if that doesn't work)
- Play several matches in a row
Neither are definitive fixes, but both seem to have worked enough to at least try. If you still can't redeem the costume after trying everything above, contact Activision Support for help.
And that's all you need to know about getting specialist outfits in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Well, that is until microtransactions inevitably hit the game and an in-game shop opens up.
