What Are Suppressed Clean Kills?

Suppressed Clean Kills are when you get Operator Kills with a Suppressed weapon, without taking any damage whatsoever.

It is a type of Clean Kill that requires that you are at full health when you kill an enemy player. You must also have a Suppressor equipped to your gun for it to count as a Suppressed Clean Kill.

Players will most likely need to get Suppressed Clean Kills to complete Challenges for Armory and Camo unlocks. You are also likely to see it appear as one of the game’s weekly Challenges.
