Having said that, let's dive in and check out all the tasks available for players in the Counter Measures challenges in COD Vanguard.
How To Complete Counter Measures Challenges
Destroy an enemy Field Upgrade (x5)
Spotting Field Upgrades placed by enemies is a fairly common sight in COD Vanguard. With that in mind, players will need to destroy five such field upgrades to complete this task.
This task features a reward of 1,000 XP and is quite easy to accomplish.
Destroy an enemy Lethal Killstreak (x25)
For this task, players will need to destroy 25 Lethal Killstreaks that have been called in by the enemy over the course of a match. The fastest way to complete it is to eliminate any Guard Dog or Attack Dogs that are likely to head your way.
Given that this is a fairly simple task, players will receive a reward of 1,000 XP upon completion.
Kill an enemy who has a Spy Plane active (x5)
In order to accomplish this task, the player needs to eliminate five enemies who have an active Spy Plane. The Spy Plane is one of many Killstreaks that are available to use, requiring 4 kills to score. Considering that players often score four consecutive kills without dying, Spy Planes are a rather common sight in COD Vanguard.
Eliminating five players who have a Spy Plane active will reward the player with another 1,000 XP.
Kill an enemy while at low HP (x30)
The most optimal method of killing an enemy is by engaging in a gunfight and managing to eliminate the enemy before they deal fatal damage to you.
Given that this task is fairly tricky and will consume a lot of time to complete, players will receive a reward of 2,500 XP and the exclusive Glass Jaw calling card.
Destroy an enemy Mine or C4 (x3)
Mines and C4s are extremely efficient pieces of equipment in COD Vanguard. Considering how difficult they can be to spot once activated, players will need to be extremely cautious about their movements in the game.
Completing this task will reward players with an additional 1,000 XP.
Destroy an enemy Killstreak (x30)
Yet another fairly simple task to complete, the player will need to take out 30 enemy Killstreaks in order to complete this challenge. Whether it's shooting down a Spy Plane or eliminating a heavily armoured Flamenaut, this shouldn't take too much time to complete.
This task also features a reward of 1,000 XP upon completion.
