DMZ brings with it dozens of Mastery challenges. Here is a guide on what they are and how to complete them.
| 17 November 2022 |
DMZ is an extraction-based gamemode that has launched along side Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. Now the devs seem pretty fed up of this comparison but, well, it is similar to Escape from Tarkov. You infil into a random location in Al Mazrah, find loot, complete missions, kill AI and players and hopefully extract with all the goods. If you die, you lose everything you had on you forever.
Our honest opinion is that as of right now it is a very thin gamemode. Although, it certainly feels like it has great potential and with players seemingly responding well to it we hope that it will evolve and grow over time. But that is a discussion for another time.
Today we are running through all of the Mastery Challenges that you can complete right now in DMZ. They are a little hidden so we thought we'd highlight them here for you. To find and track your own personal challenges you'll need to open the Calling Card tab in your profile, scroll right down until you come across the DMZ challenges.
Each Mastery challenge has 6 Calling Cards + 1 Mastery Calling Card that is usually animated.

DMZ Valuables Extraction Mastery
Loot and extract with Valuable items. We're not sure how this one works or if it is broken. We assumed that items such as valuable quest items or laptops that are worth large amounts would count but it doesn't seem to be tracking for us. As soon as we find out we will update this description.

Occasionally you will come across 'Keys' they are found from looting and dead enemies. Each Key has a location that it unlocks. You'll know what this key is for by checking the description on the key. They are fairly common to find. We've seen 1-2 per match so far. Unlock the space it is for to level this Mastery Challenge.

Unlock 25 Locked Spaces in DMZ
Unlock 50 Locked Spaces in DMZ

DMZ armoured Agent Kill Mastery
This one is pretty self-explainatory. You'll remember that 'Agents' means AI Bots. Well, all you have to do is find and kill enemy bots that have armour on. You'll know you are shooting armour as your hit markers will be blue. There found right across Al Mazrah so this should unlock naturally for you anyway.

Kill 250 Armored Agents in the DMZ
Kill 500 Armored Agents in the DMZ

And thats it so far. Those are the DMZ Mastery Challenges. There is plenty to be getting on with but we are certain that as the mode evoles more will be added. We're enjoying the mode so far and are excited to see what it turns into as time goes on. Hopefully, the more people play it the more resources will be dedicated to it.
