Black Ops 4 | How to Unlock Characters “RUIN” (Punching Mitts Locations + Close Quarter Combat)

To unlock Ruin in Black Ops 4 Blackout, you need to find the “Punching Mitts”, defeat 1 enemy in close quarter combat and finish the match with the Punching Mitts in your inventory. If you fail to complete the character mission for any reason in one match, you need to find the Juneau’s Tags again in the next game again.

The Punching Mitts mission item can spawn in 3 different locations on the map. It will change randomly each match.


  1. On top of the north crane in Construction Site
  2. On top of the Lighthouse
  3. On the roof of Asylum

After finding the Mitts, second requirement for Ruin is taking out an enemy in close quarter combat. This can be done in any fashion you want with any weapon, not only melee. Important is only that you are relatively close to your enemy.
