IX Diego

Unlocking IX Diego requires players to scavenge Equipment Stashes until they can locate the mission item Mayan Crest.

After that the player needs to kill or finish off a player with a Bowie Knife, and end the game with the mission item in the inventory.



IX Scarlett

To unlock IX Scarlett a player would need to farm up Zombies until one of them drops the Steel Brace mission item.

Once located, the player simply needs to open a Supply Drop and finish the game with the mission item still in the inventory.

IX Shaw

Just like with IX Scarlett, for IX Shaw, the player needs to harass Zombies until one of them drops the Ritual Bowl item.

After acquiring the item, the player would then need to use five perks in the game while finishing in top seven in Quads, top 15 in Duos, or top 30 in Solos with the Ritual Bowl in the inventory.


IX Bruno

To unlock IX Bruno, you might find the Lion Pauldron item from a Mystery Boxto activate the quest. At that point, you’ll need to kill an enemy with a Combat Axe.

Once that’s done, all you have to do is finish the match with the Pauldron in your inventory and IX Bruno is yours.
