Operation Spectre Rising Contraband Tiers Breakdown – Stats, Images, and More

Jeffrey Mizrahi

All the rewards from every tier in Operation Spectre Rising’s Contraband.

With the launch of Operation Spectre Rising in Call of Duty Black Ops 4, a new Contraband has been introduced. Rather than lasting over two months and consisting of 100 tiers, this Operation will last half the time and consists of only 50 tiers.

Just like we did for Operation Grand Heist, we’re going to take a deep dive into what these tiers have to offer and how it stacks up to last season. Scroll to the bottom of the page for images of all the loot!

  • Stickers – 20 (20 Common)
  • Calling Cards – 12 (12 Rare)
  • Outfits – 6 (1 Rare, 3 Legendary, 2 Epic)
  • Gestures – 4 (2 Rare, 2 Legendary)
  • Reticles – 2 (2 Legendary)
  • Warpaints – 2 (1 Rare, 1 Legendary)
  • Weapons – 2 (2 Ultra)
  • Specialists – 1 (1 Ultra)
  • Jump Packs – 1 (1 Legendary)

Noticeably absent this Operation are weapon camos and Mastercrafts. While every Contraband has had at least one of each, my personal favorite customization item in Black Ops 4 is unobtainable through tier progression this season.

The least desirable items, anything Rare of below, take up 72% of the Contraband while most desirable items, anything Epic or higher, make up 10% of the pool.

What’s most interesting about this is that Treyarch has remained consistent with their offerings despite heavy criticism from the fans. Both in Operation Grand Heist and Spectre Rising, only 6% of items are Ultra.

However, there has been a decrease in percentage of Calling Cards and Stickers this time around (yet only by 5%), with an increase in percentage of Reticles, Gestures, Warpaints, and Jumpacks by 7%, so at least there is more variety. Mirroring last Operation, there are no Tags or character specific Warpaints and Gestures in these Tiers which is definitely a plus.

There are also two items confirmed to come to Black Ops 4 in the future, the Ballistic Knife and the Vendetta Sniper Rifle, that presumably will be part of the second half of this season.
