We present the nature of 50 unidentified hard X-ray emitting objects detected with Swift-BAT and listed as of unidentified nature in the 54-month Palermo BAT catalogue. We found 45 extragalactic sources: 26 type 1 AGN, 15 type 2 AGN, one type 1 QSO, one starburst galaxy, one X-ray bright optically normal galaxy, and one LINER. We report 30 new redshift measurements, 13 confirmations and 2 more accurate redshift values. The remaining five objects are galactic sources: three are Cataclismic Variables, one is a X-ray Binary, and one is an active star.
