Call of Duty: Ghosts – All Perks Detailed: Icons, Descriptions and Rules

If you’ve been keeping up with any of the latest Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer news, you’ll know that developers Infinity Ward are giving you a lot of choice when it comes to perk selection.

In fact, players will have 35 perks, spread across 7 different tiers, at there disposal. In Create-A-Soldier, you’ll be able to spend up to 8 points on perk usage, some of which cost more than others. To add to that, giving up your secondary weapons and equipment will allot you even more points to spend – up to 11 points total.

So, what to they all do?

A new image that has recently been circling Reddit (thanks, plokijuh1229) lists every perk in Call of Duty: Ghosts and describes what each does, along with showing you the icon. Now, the build which you’ve seen us playing is, of course, nowhere near the final version of the game, so we suggest taking the list with a grain of salt. Things could change by the game’s release on November 5.

Nevertheless, it’s best to start planning your loadouts ahead of time, so check out the list below.

Note that most perks in the Elite tier cost more points than perks in the other tiers. Perk costs are not included in the list above.

    Ping has a kind of “Enemy-ception” to it when I first read that. I really am impressed by the way they have organised though. It seems as though they may be trying their absolute hardest to give so much variety.

    • SangheiliSpecOp

      My comment is in direct contrast to yours, lol.

      • Stev-oCoal

        I totally saw that :P all good, we have different views.

        • SangheiliSpecOp

          Yeah :D

    • oofy

      “Detect enemies nearby enemies of enemies you killed.”
      ?!?
      Reminds me of that scene in Dick Tracy when he’s trying to figure out if the enemy of his enemy is his friend or if the enemy of his enemy is his enemy.

  • SangheiliSpecOp

    Too many perks make a game that is based on luck and inconsistency, not skill. But that’s what CoD has always been built on for the most part. Looks like BF4 is going this route too now, although it will be within squads.

    • MegaMan3k

      Not really. What’s in BF4 looks only marginally different than what was in BF3. If anything, a bit nerfed from what was in BF3.

    • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

      Except the upgrades in BF4 don’t make the player better than they actually are like CoD perks. Some are a bit cheaper like being able to walk full speed past a motion sensor or the armor which would make people invincible in normal mode, but none of those are achievable by being a lone wolf, nor are they initially available.

  • sd94

    Hmm. Perks seem to be a little better balanced (one ability per perk vs. two to three like BO2) but I worry that being able to equip a ton of perks will throw things off a bit.

    • Mitch

      yeah, 11 of 1 point seems a bit too much.

  • BOSS jediZOHAN

    Yes, because all of COD’s balance issues will be solved by adding MORE perks. I don’t get why these devs put so many variables into the game that it makes finding good balance impossible, thereby ruining the gameplay experience with an abundance of unbalanced bullshit,

    • SangheiliSpecOp

      Pretty much this.

    • Stev-oCoal

      I honestly see your point on this, I do. But to me personally in my experience of CoD it hasn’t been the perks or even guns being overbalanced, its lag sadly. Now before anyone sees this and says stuff like “get a better internet”. I’m 16, I don’t have the ability to freely select my internet sadly, not that that matters because internet in Australia is pretty meh. But if they honestly need to give dedicated servers.

      Also, I find that everything in the table above has a use, some may just not see it because of the way they play.

      • ThtJstHapnd

        Couple things… I agree completely. Look at my comment to the post. Also recent gameplay makes me sad as someone caught the “host migration” screen. Then Mark was in an interview got asked about dedicated servers. He replied “We aren’t talking about that yet” That gives me hope!

        • z0ml3ie P1kachu

          If the “host migration” system is already in the game then it’s not leaving. P2P is sadly coming back.

          • ThtJstHapnd

            So they were playing on PC. But Pc has had dedicated servers in the past. How is it Pc had dedicated servers but the consoles didn’t? So your comment however true it might be, is not a fact.

    • ThtJstHapnd

      The more perks there are the less people can complain about lag comp. He killed you fast? It’s because of the perks he had, duh! Not because the game gave his crappy connection an advantage.

    • Blaine Reinsma

      look, you’ve always had a very clear Treyarc bias. Why dont you just ignore anything to do with an IW game if you’re just going to come into it with such a negative bias? There is NO WAY you can have any idea of how balanced a game will be based on as little information as we currently have about COD Ghosts.

    • Mr. Thuggins

      I think splitting up the perks promotes the use of many different combinations and could help add some diversity to the game instead everybody zeroing in the one set of perks that can used at all times.

    • awkenney

      Agreed. 100%.

    • xupacabra

      Don’t worry, not everyone is good at CoD..

  • Sensou-Ookami

    The Skyrim class system of CoD. :)

    • Stev-oCoal

      Needs Fus-Ro-Dah Perk: Explosions send your enemies flying across the map.

      or “Arrow2knee”: Shots to the knee cause the player to remark about being a soldier like you, until they took a shot in the knee.

      • Sensou-Ookami

        Perk “Sweet Roll”, shooting opponents in the face gives you extra health making your opponent cry about losing his sweet roll.

        • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

          Oh sweet roll references how i do love thee.

        • Stev-oCoal

          ahaha “Let me guess, someone stole your sweetroll?”

          “No bro, just took a bullet to the face.”

          “oh really? too bad it wasn’t the knee, would’ve had a joke there”

  • thebulky1cometh

    There’s certainly nothing “new” to this- they’ve just done a better job splitting the different perks. The whole idea will go out the window with one overpowered gun that doesn’t need any attachments/ will allow people to spend more points on perks.

    • Dirtknap

      For sure, I’m really disappointed that we haven’t seen a re-adoption of a simpler perk (and kill streak) system, while I agree with Mr Thuggins comment above, I feel the volume of options dilutes the purity of the experience.

      Based on Ghosts premise it would have been excellent to see a Mad Max takes to the battlefield type approach, something less tech focused and really get back to that gun on gun feel. IW tend to be the devs that struggle with weapon balance the most, hopefully they have addressed this, what with restaffing and now running at full strength etc.

  • MegaMan3k

    On a cursory glance, I think that most classes will be setup similarly as before.

    But, ho-ho-holy crap has “Ghost” been nerfed. All 8 perk slots for what one perk used to do.

    • ThtJstHapnd

      I can’t wait to make a class with all 11 points. Main weapon silenced, then all the “Stealth” perks, plus the “awareness” perk. That would be 11 points! That would be a Search and Rescue class right there! Imagine two on one in search, your buddy goes down but you don’t see the skull on your screen so you have no idea where he was killed at! Talk about heart racing.

      • Beastshaw

        That’s how pussies play search and destroy. If I was going to ever play SnD on another IW game I would be using all of the speed perks minus stalker and add lightweight and dead silence. I am a cold blooded rusher when it comes to SnD. But likely wont be buying this game so I’ll stick to the best SnD CoD so far which is by far BO1.

        • ThtJstHapnd

          So your calling me a pussy? I can see your maturity level. Please do not buy the game I don’t wish to play with someone as childish and pathetic as you. Comment reported.

      • Dirtknap

        I really enjoy a good stealth build, hopefully suppressed weapons will be worthwhile in Ghosts (assuming IW have taken their queues from previous IW entries rather than BLOPS II in this instance).

        • ThtJstHapnd

          It looks like they are sticking with a lot of their mechanics from MW3. Hopefully they learned their errors.

          • Dirtknap

            Agreed, fingers crossed. I am now allowing myself to be cautiously optimistic.

            • ThtJstHapnd

              Ditto

  • http://Twitter.com/ImDiabetus Alex Hill (Im Diabetus)

    So far I’m liking the game. The only thingbim concerned about is if the snipers are able to spam as fast as they can and if there’s any leathal support killstreaks. Those are two things I don’t want to see.

    • ThtJstHapnd

      It was said in a couple interviews no lethal support streaks. That’s a good thing. Snipers are always a problem with Infinity Ward. I have seen a couple Youtubers that went to the event. They are great snipers and they said as of right now(not final build) snipers are a little shaky. That your bullet goes crazy if your not scoped in for a little longer than BO2.

      • James K

        They said the lethality of the support streaks is toned down.

        Here’s an example of a lethal support streak. With Danger Close, this rocket launcher is a punisher.
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9ePWa_nn1w

      • Mitch

        The launcher you saw in the trailer which shoots 2 rockets is from Support.

        • ThtJstHapnd

          I was just a replying what they said in interviews. Sorry I forgot my disclaimer.

          DISCLAIMER: My words are not direct reflection on the game or it’s final product. I reply with my opinion AND/OR facts that I have heard from interviews and videos. Thank you for your time.

    • MrJDGuns

      so far only 2 lethal support streaks have been confirmed the heli scout sniper and the MAAWS rocket Launcher. Although I did see a gameplay trailer that had a juggernaut.

      • http://Twitter.com/ImDiabetus Alex Hill (Im Diabetus)

        Yeah. But it’s only a knife. I can deal with that

        • MrJDGuns

          nope apparently now the juggernaut in support is the one with the minigun.

    • SpringLoaded12

      There was one support streak, I think it was for a pretty high score, called Helo Scout I think. You sit in a hovering helicopter with a sniper rifle, allowing you to provide overwatch.
      So that’s somewhat lethal, but not nearly so powerful as a bombing run or anything like that.

  • Kidanny Mendez

    I hope toughness and flak jacket don’t become a necessity in the game

    • zacflame

      it never was.

      • Jon Cameron

        Tactical Mask is a necessity in Black Ops 2. Simple as that. Flak Jacket not so much.

        • Dirtknap

          I used tac mask across the board in BLOPS II, however, when you’re the only guy playing the objective in a random lobby, flak jacket is must have.

        • zacflame

          I’ve never used tactical mask or flak jacket in any COD game, with the exception of the first black ops, in my class based on nova gas.
          and never had any issues with tactical grenades or explosives.

      • Kidanny Mendez

        I’m not saying flak jacket is a necessity now but with danger close coming back it could become one. and Toughness is the go too perk in the second tier.

  • ROCKMONEY

    Is it just me or does Deadeye sound like they brought back the Stopping Power perk…

    • Masada157

      It looks more like an increased chance of spontaneously getting the Stopping Power perk per encounter, which I’m oddly fine with.

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      If this is true, then it is s

    • Blaine Reinsma

      except it only gives you a *chance* of increased damage on each bullet fired, and that chance only starts after you’ve started a killstreak (Drift0r says it takes 4 kills to kick in). That chance gets bigger with each kill but you have to have a pretty big killstreak for it to become reliable. To add to all that, it costs 5 points. I dont think we’ll be seeing much Deadeye in Ghosts, it seems to be a high-risk medium-reward perk that only elite players would want to use.

    • oofy

      Plus, at least in my case, we don’t know what the odds are and how they increase with each kill. 5%, 10%, 15%…etc?

    • Patrick Matthew Barahona

      That’s what they did. They just put a different name to it and it increases your damage
      the longer your streak is.

  • Blaine Reinsma

    I’m really liking almost all of this perk list. EXCEPT for the fact that Danger Close is back…

    what the fuck IW. What kind of cruel sick joke are you trying to play? =’(

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      Flack Jacket is back aswell. Thats always been broke.

    • MrJDGuns

      I honestly think it won’t be as bad as mw2 just be glad they did not bring back commando and one man army and juggernaut.

  • Jared

    I hope Recon is nerfed so that only you can see the painted target and not the whole team and also the duration of the paint is shorter because ten seconds was quite long. Also, if the include Danger Close they should have it so that you cannot scavenge any explosives then it wouldn’t be much of a problem.

  • SufferingMoon5

    Bandolier on the return, hell yeah!

    • SubXero

      Seems like it should be a 1 point perk though considering Scavenger is 2.

      • Patrick Matthew Barahona

        Why should it be a 1 point perk just because scavenger is a 2 point perk. That makes no sense.

        • SubXero

          Uh… let’s see here; Scavenger refills ammo and equipment “infinitely” while Bandolier just starts you out with some extra ammo. I realize that “infinite” is technical since you have to actually move around to “scavenge” but infinite > limited. Does my train of thought at least make sense now? -_-

  • That guy you might know

    I love how they have Ghost completely new now.
    The Ghost Perk in BO2 was really great, and if someone was camping, the MMS was a great counter.

    I can express my happiness to the fact that there aren’t any deathstreaks.
    Lets see how this goes.

    Some faith is restored so far,

    • zacflame

      “the ghost perk in black ops 2 was really great”?
      it was awful. disgusting.
      stealth that only works while moving?
      I’d rather kill myself.

      • z0ml3ie P1kachu

        I loved it. Assassin in MW3 was a nightmare so the BO2 ghost was a nice break.

      • That guy you might know

        What do you mean it was awful?

        Would you rather be killed by someone sitting in corner using the old Ghost perk, or by someone using complete stealth and on the move.

        I’m guessing you hated it because your “strategic camping” didn’t work with it.
        Seriously, only the garbage campers complained about Ghost being a good perk for once.

        • zacflame

          the thing is, stealth is only a viable strategy while either maintaining a slow pace or not moving at all, and they decide to cut it out because it is too slow paced for the casual gamer who doesn’t feel like checking corners or even trying to process that other players don’t have a big red name tag all the time.
          and IMO, the only advantage CoD has over battlefield is that it HAD stealth. take away stealth, and I’d rather buy MoH or killzone.

          • That guy you might know

            CoD is too fast paced for that kind of stealthy stuff, even in Search and Destroy people are running around full speed with silenced weapons and stealth perks.

            That was the closest to stealth in any recent CoD game. Stealth is non-existent in MoH and Battlefield, and its slowly vanishing in CoD.

          • SangheiliSpecOp

            You can hide from other players in any BF game…. their maps are pretty sizeable. It is harder to be stealthy in BF3 admittedly , but I remember in Bad Company 1 and 2 how you could be behind enemy lines as a recon class picking off players and C4ing/ laser designating vehicles and no one could ever find you. And with the ghillie suits, I would have players literally a few feet in front of me and they would walk right past me lol. You are right though… it seems like in BF games now, you are funneled into the action with linear maps >.>

          • RedisLife

            That’s complete BS. Stealth is only viable while moving slowly? Explain this, please?

            As an avid user of the Ghost perk for many years, I have to say I’ve never ever just sat there, and ‘camped’. You rush with lightweight, silencer and a knife. You get in and around the spawn and attack from behind and the sides. You never stay still – the minute you do, you’re streak is over.

  • Just Play The Damn Game

    it’d be nice if you could naturally do some of this stuff without perks. Although I love(sarcasm) the whole “running 3 seconds then being tired for the next 3 minutes” and the ever popular perk add on for a “run for 8 seconds with shorter steps and be tired for 4 minutes” I at least, could do without tired soldier.ijs 80%of my deaths are due to a tired soldier stopping and walking in mid-stride during a flank session. lets not start on the OP flank jackets when you’re not wearing one and dangerclose damage upgrade. but w.e. have fun with that.

  • xbox rules

    Hopefully it does have dedicated servers so we who have skill can shut those kids up with there wana be connections. Then they will never play cod ever b ecause its lag free. How many are tired of shooting people and they don’t die and they turn around and 1 bullet you and u die.

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      Skill in a video game. I’ve never laughed harder.

      • joe blow

        Your picture, I’ve never laughed harder

        • ThtJstHapnd

          This made me literally laugh out loud!!!

          • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

            He made a personal insult about somebody who made some amount of sense. Funny or not you are encouraging immaturity. “Skill” in games like this are almost non existent, coordination with mantes helps but “skill” doesn’t really exist when it comes to shooters in general. It is all luck.

            • ThtJstHapnd

              You don’t know my “beef” with Chad. He comments childish comments and never replies back. He called me childish names in other posts and never replied back. He spouts useless information and never replies back.

              How is “Skill in a video game.” an insult on someone? It wasn’t. He was downing skill in the first place. Your reply is 100 percent wrong. Skill has a lot to do with anything, not just video games. So in your words of your reply you could say that basketball players have no skill, it’s just luck that the ball falls in the basket. So is that why they, and MLG gamers get paid some great amounts of money? Because a game of luck. Bull crap. If you believe otherwise your one of the ones with no skill. I have friends that can’t aim worth a crap in a game, I can. I can aim and kill. My son sits and watches me and says “Man dad, wish I could be as good as you”. So I should reply to him, that I’m not actually a good player, that I don’t have skill, it’s al about luck? That would be pathetic, I am better than most people at video games, my speed and situational awareness excels better than others. But according to you that’s just luck. Horribly horribly wrong.

            • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

              I didn’t say you insulted him, I was referring to the other guy an how you supported him so you misunderstood. And luck is the biggest player on any video game like this, of course reflexes and awareness play a part but it is mostly luck. To say that luck plays does not play a part is “Horribly horribly wrong”.

              I do not know your relationship (for lack of a better word) with Chad, and I am sure he says immature things but you seem to be hostile most of the time and that does not help your case. I just made an account earlier but I have been here awhile, and you seem to take things to extremes. It is just video games and there is no reason for you to be hostile towards anyone who does not agree with you. You are being hostile here, you have been hostile regarding somebody disagreeing with “XFistsClenchedX” about Xbox One on one article.

              It does not matter how immature people may be, idiocy is not an excuse for hostility. I gave my opinion and you wrote a short essay as to why my opinion is wrong and that I basically need to shut up (it was implied heavily). If anything not being able to accept others opinions is more immature than anything I have seen Chad say. I do personally think being good at CoD (for example) is mostly luck, and it is ok if you disagree but yo take the disagreement to far with hostility. For a so called grown man you fail to accept that people my disagree with you, and when someone does you throw a mini fit about it.

              No matter how “good” you are at games it does not make you or your opinions better than anybody else here. And frankly I could care less if your kid looks up to your gaming prowess, that is also no excuse for your hostility. By the way being a braggart is a huge sign of immaturity (almost the whole last part of your comment was bragging). It is just a game so get over it and yourself!

            • ThtJstHapnd

              It’s cute you think your here to save the day. Congratulations on creating an account. I don’t care what you have seen from me. I did understand what you wrote. If I didn’t get what you meant is another thing. If you were more clear then there wouldn’t have been a problem.

              For you to come here and create an account and lecture me on what I write is just scary. I can’t believe you see a couple posts on here and have the arrogance to verbally attack me about who I am and how I treat my kid. I don’t know how long it takes you to write a paragraph, but it doesn’t take me very long. Oh crap I’m bragging again. I can’t tell you good things about myself without you saying I’m bragging. Right. That’s just pathetic. I can’t tell you that I’m good at video games in general, because that’s bragging.

              So do you do this “save the day” “better person” thing in real life? Or are you just bored? I have taken nothing to the “extreme” like you say. I do not use vulgarity or name calling like most people do on here, nor do I judge someones character like you did to me. You told me I should be attending my child. That is a horrible attitude. You do not know my life and I can see your mentality towards people online. It would have been better if you would have stayed away from creating the account.

              So my brother who has skills and talent to be in the Marines, it was just luck that he scored the best on every test he has ever taken. So when I outscored everyone in my military class, it was luck. I have no skill. So when someone hits a home run in baseball it was luck, they had no skill to hit a 90 fast ball. I know people that can play sports all day but they can’t get three kills in a game of call of duty. You know why? They don’t have that skill. For you to call it all “luck” is outrageous. So it’s luck when I can hear someone coming up from behind me? I heard them, I turned around and I kill them. What’s luck have to do with it. I don’t understand your definition of luck.

              Now please leave me alone, as I have better things to do, than to listen to your arrogance. FYI: My son just laughed at your joke of a post. Congratulations.

            • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

              Seriously, what is with the hostility? I never insulted you, but you remain hostile all the way through. Vulgarity is not a needed component for hostility by the way.

              As for the luck thing that is my opinion, it is luck whether or not an enemy happens to be around the corner you choose to turn, it is luck whether or not a helicopter chooses to target you when you are near a group of teammates ect. I admitted that some amount of skill (reaction ability, aim ect) so why you remain so defensive about something that is completely opinionated is beyond me. You also cannot compare doing good on CoD to lets say baseball, it takes a whole lot more “skill” to hit a ball moving at 95mph then it does to kill somebody online, and even with that a menial amount of luck is involved. It takes more “skill” to consistently make a shot from half court then it does to drop shot, point being the “skill” level required is so different it is illogical to compare the two. Have you ever fired a real weapon? If you have you would know that firing a real weapon is a whole lot harder than moving a stick around and pressing a button.

              I respect your opinion, so why can’t you respect mine? Is it that hard for you to wrap your head around the fact that some people may think differently from you? What is logical to you may not be logical in the minds of others, and while I agree the things you stated are elements of skill (IMO) a whole lot more luck is involved.

              I do not like to make judgements, and I should not have judged you so fast but in the last couple comments you have posted you have proven my point. That is not my judgement of the internet, it is just my judgement of you as I know people like Dirtknap are actually reasonable and respect other’s opinions unlike you. My pre existing judgment was illogical, but now you have proven it to be true.

              Like I said before anybody who cannot accept the opinions of others are more immature than the trash talkers (like Chad). Instead of the hostility and bashing of others opinions you could respectfully disagree and state why, and you do that but in a disrespectful and hostile manner. That being said your lack of respect for others and their opinions makes you the arrogant one, not me.

              It is ok to say good things about yourself but when every other sentence says something like “I am good at this” or “(insert person here” looks up to how awesome I am at games” it IS bragging. The line between positivity and self righteousness is very thin, and you (IMO) crossed that line. But that is not the point of these comments.

            • ThtJstHapnd

              I am not being hostile. You are reading the words with your own tone. So if it’s hostile thats the way your are taking it. You don’t know my voice, and you don’t know my tone. I’m actually sitting here happy looking across at my beautiful girlfriend. She keeps asking me whats so funny. I read all the posts so far to her. She laughed at you as well. You think I’m being hostile, I’m not your reading it that way because it’s what you want. You want someone to talk down to and you want someone to start an argument with. I don’t know what’s wrong with you and I don’t want to know. You don’t have to take it out on me.

              Now I never said I don’t respect your opinion. You said it doesn’t take any skill. To have fun at the game no it doesn’t. That’s not what I was talking about, and you know it. Now you throw in random killstreaks and such. There’s a perk so that helicopter doesn’t target you. I know this because I read the perks. I know what I would need to avoid. I’m not a pro gamer, but I’m better than most(sorry I’m bragging again).

              Once again you go on a rant about how I have proven you right about me and that I’m arrogant. Who is the person in the wrong here? You attacked me for MY OPINION. Yet you want to respect yours? That’s fair.

              I don’t know what your reading, as to you replying with ” every other sentence says something like “I am good at this”. Your reading what you want and not what really is. I’m getting the hint that your upset about something in your own life and your trying to take it out on someone that has done nothing to you. Once again, before you attacked my opinion on what was funny, I have never spoke to you, I have never done anything to you but you posted to me.

              Your wording and attitude towards me is common. You believe that your better than me, and that I’m the worst thing in the world. If it makes you better and stops you from lecturing me on the internet please believe that. I’m allowed to have an opinion just as you are and I wish to be left alone from this point on. Your hostility towards me in a person to person situation would have led to you being arrested by now. You came into my conversation and verbally attacked me for no reason. The things people do on the internet are astounding. I can assure you would have never confronted me if we were not on the internet. You know why? Not because of anything physical, because it would make you look crazy. You are looking like a psycho. Your still lecturing me about my opinion on what is funny. You need a new hobby sir.

              I never insulted your opinion lol. My first post said you should not support the immaturity of others, it said nothing against your opinion. After that I gave my opinion on the whole skill thing, but nowhere did I say that you were wrong to have the opinion the skill really matters, and please find where I said that and quote me because I know you can’t.

              Randomality exists in everything, again that is not to say you are wrong. “You said it doesn’t take any skill.” No lol, I did not ,what I said was “”Skill” in games like this are almost non existent” keyword ALMOST. You act as if I care that your GF is laughing, that is if she even exists for all anybody here knows you could just be a troll.

            • ThtJstHapnd

              FYI: The comment I posted to that sparked this entire debate about you trying to change my life, got more upvotes than the main post. You know why? Because people know who chad is and that he deserved the comment. You have gotten no likes. You know why? Because you are the troll.

              *****Now my sarcasm starts********
              You changed my life! You made me change my entire outlook on everything! I’m so sorry I made you upset. Now can you leave me alone? Thanks have a great life Dr. Phil.

            • Zatanna XOXOXOXO

              Notice how none of your comments to me have not gotten upvotes either, know why? It is because nobody has seen them, not because either of us are idiots. So by your own logic you are also an idiot because none of your comments to me got any upvotes. And I do so love how you neglected to say anything about what I actually said, but that is probably because you just had nothing to say.

            • ThtJstHapnd

              I didn’t have anything to say because I never read your post. ;) Sorry to hurt your feelings. I have given up on trying to speak to you. I’m a better person by not feeding your trolling.

      • z0ml3ie P1kachu

        Dedicated servers in a COD. I’m laughing even harder.

  • John a

    There is really no way to sugar coat it this game sucks.

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      have you played it? Thats what I thought you placebo gamer.

      • John a

        I have played it there has been 7 out before this. SHEEP

  • Alex Melendez

    I won’t try to hate this game(that doesn’t mean I’m going to buy it) so I’ll just say this. If you liked CoD 4 then you will like this…

  • Steph

    Danger close hahahahha!!!

  • jahladagaming

    Why do you say perk costs are not included in the list above? What are those faint numbers next to the perks then?

    • Mitch

      Those a perk costs :/

    • ThtJstHapnd

      Per match you earn coins. Coins are used to unlock content. You can unlock everything in any order you want. I believe that’s what he was talking about, not the cost for create a class.

  • Off topic

    Silly mistake David (I think), yu said “Perk costs are not included in the list above” but most of the perk prices are included, like deadeye clearly stated as 5, stalker 2 etc.

  • Ashraf Mansour

    WTF? How is “Steady Aim” unknown? As it is with past CoD games, it’s most likely, increased hip fire accuracy

  • Mr. Thuggins

    I hope the Stinger comes back. I got so many multi-kills with that lovely weapon.

  • LAD

    So there’s no pro version of each perk?

    • MrJDGuns

      no there is not.

  • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

    Danger close perk? Really? You can’t be serious…

    • SGTAngry

      Yeah, I can’t believe this is the first comment about it. It’ll be interesting to see how big of an advantage it gives compared to everything else.

      • Yevgenij Pekurovskyy

        Danger close was one of the main problems in mw2, in mw3 they took it out. Maybe its because people were complaining about low granade damage.

        • Chad Eugene Rash

          Danger Close wasn’t the problem. OMA was.

          • Ty W.

            Yeah infinite grenade launchers was a large concern. Having extra damage on one grenade won’t get you very far. Also, if someone goes through the trouble of having Strong Arm, Extra Grenade, and Danger Close, they won’t have enough points to tailor that class to anything else, and Flak Jacket will make them rage. My only concern with extra grenade damage is in Search, but with the new Rescue version in which a cross-map grenade just leaves your tag open for a teammate to bring you back, that’s less of a concern.

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      You have the OPed flack Jacket crybaby.

  • iSpiRiiT

    I still can’t belive why they removed theater mode!. I was looking forward to making montages but nooo infinity ward don’t give a shit about pc players !.

    • ThtJstHapnd

      Next gen consoles have the theater built in, and PCs can capture themselves with a reasonable rig. Theater mode recording only did one thing, lag the gameplay. It was hard to export your videos through their options. It’s better that it’s back to the people that take the time to do it, not the ones that have it easy.

      • James Mulhall

        The next-gen consoles can only record a limited amount while you play. You can also use theater to capture moments without the hud.

        • ThtJstHapnd

          I do know this. I never disputed this. Next gen can live stream, as well. I can then save my live stream. I have never seen a reason to capture without a hud so that’s not a problem to me. I was just stating what they said in an interview. They said they didn’t include it because next gen has it built in.

    • Chad Eugene Rash

      it was the cause of lag comp.

  • Yo Mama

    A lot of these are fake….

  • Jon Cameron

    The speed category looks good. I might try to run it by itself. You know, cause, I gotta go fast~

    I like what Strong Arms does, but I remember in CoD4 this wasn’t an optional feature. You just threw nades and shit far in that game and it was great. God damn it.

    On the Go is neat, though I’d prefer being able to do it without a perk. It’s whatever though, I’m used to not reloading while running anyway. Fast Hands and Dexterity are the same, which is neat seeing as they’re good perks. I like how it says “Steady Aim = Unknown”. Steady Aim has never had some other effect added on to its increased hip fire, so lol…

    I think Takedown is going to be a useful perk but at the same time it probably won’t end up all that useful. 90% of players don’t run toward the skull that pops up to avenge his teammate. Blind Eye we’ll have to wait and see. I never felt it necessary to use a perk that had that effect except in MW3. I didn’t use it a bunch then but that was the only game where I felt it was useful at all. Off the Grid is just Ghost with no extra effects, positive or negative, so we’ll more than likely be seeing that all the time. Dead Silence was once a perk that was popular and useful, now I don’t know why it’s still a thing. Ghost is kind of pointless as the no red name/crosshair only worked for playing dead in MW2.

    Recon, well we’ll have to see. I forgot how the Recon Drone (or whatever) worked in MW3 but I’m pretty sure it was overpowered. Scavenger is Scavenger, one of the best. SitRep is going to continue being one of those in between perks where you’ll do fine without it but you’ll do fine with it also. Awareness won’t matter with all of this extra audio added in from explosions and shit. Also with guns shooting 24/7, it would really only be useful in SnD/SnR, if even often enough at all then. Wiretap is going to be abused (as in used by practically everyone).

    Lightweight is another in between perk. You’re fine with or without it. Painkiller, if the description is what it is, is yet again going to be an annoyance. Toughness is another in between perk. Tac. Resist and Blast Shield are probably going to be used often for awhile after launch since the game before is Black Ops 2 after all.

    I’m glad they’re calling it Bandolier again. It should always be called that. Unless it’s false considering the parenthesis. Danger Close, though may be something else, I still dunno how to feel about it, so I’ll leave it alone.

    I’m not sure what PIng does with this description, so I won’t bother caring. Deadeye seems really powerful, but it does take it 5 points. Then again you’re allowed 8 apparently, so that’s still 4 perks at the most if you use it. Not sure how I feel about it.

    • Ty W.

      With the new reverb engine, Dead Silence will be much more useful. It’s hard to find a gameplay video with good audio, but if you do you’ll understand. Footfalls will now echo quite loudly in certain areas, particularly the areas where the targets in S&D/S&R are located in some of the maps already shown. I agree it had little point in recent games where all the other noise drowned out the already quiet footsteps, but they will be much louder indoors now.

  • Patrick Matthew Barahona

    QuickDraw+Dexterity+Sleight of Hand+On the Go+Agility+Marathon by sacrifing a secondary, lethal, and tactical while using the specialist strike package = MOTHER OF GOD…

  • aHMaYz

    MLG S&D Load Out for me : Dexterity, Stalker, Toughness, Dead Silence. LeGGo!!!

  • buttfacebob545

    They’re still using the same damn perks, are you kidding me

  • Rave

    Takedown seems like a very good perk for SND, combine it with a silencer and off the grid and you got yourself a true stealth class.

    This system looks as another solid ‘step forward’.. Seems much better than in BO1… Tho only time will tell :)

  • KESH ONE

    I hope they have killstreaks instead of pointstreaks. I play TDM 95% of the time where points are a little more difficult to get so BO2 ruined it for me.
