How To Get Lightweight Pro In Black Ops

As you know by now, perks play a big role in Call of Duty and this is no different in Call of Duty: Black Ops.

The perk people are most interested in are lightweight and lightweight pro. Lightweight is a Tier 1 perk and it can be bought at rank 4. The non pro version of lightweight makes you run faster [about 7%], which is useful in game modes in which you need to get to a certain point quickly. Think about Domination or Capture the Flag. Getting lightweight pro will result in you not getting any falling damage [Same effect as Commando Pro in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2].

People want to know how to get lightweight pro in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Unlike Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, you won’t be getting the pro version of a perk by completing a challenge. In Call of Duty: Black Ops you need to complete a set of 3 challenges in order to get the pro version of the perk. These are the challanges you need to complete to get lightweight pro:

  • Escape Death: Escape death 5 times after being shot.
  • Melee Kills: Get 15 melee kills.
  • Offense Medal: Get 10 offense medals by killing enemies near their objectives.

Knowing about what lightweight pro does is one thing. Unlocking it is something different. Reading through forums, it looks like people are having difficulties with the 3rd challenge, “Offense Medal”. The first and second challenges are straight forward and shouldn’t cause any problems.

As for the 3rd challenge, reading through our own forum, I’ve come across a very nice tip from Ezenthar. He says:

Best advice I can offer to anyone going for this incredibly difficult and frustrating challenge is to play Domination, and camp like a *** near an enemy objective. Camp in a good spot, and wait for someone to spawn and see if they run near their objective, then quickly gun them down.

Also, if you see a lone enemy (or two) claiming one of your team’s points and your team mates are making no attempt to defend it, let them take it. Then, the moment they capture it gun them down for an offense kill =]

Another great tip to complete the 3rd challenge comes from Urdoom9 in the form of a comment. He says:

Play capture the flag. If you’re holding the flag, every kill is an offense medal.

This is as far as I can help you when it comes to “how to get lightweight pro in Black Ops“. The rest you will have to do yourself. And while we are at it, do you have a tip or tips for people who want to unlock lightweight pro in Call of Duty: Black Ops?
