Call of Duty's perk system will be changed in Modern Warfare 2. Here's how the new perk system works, as well as all the bonus features.
Modern Warfare II has added a slew of new exciting features to the Call of Duty franchise. From the new vehicle mechanics to its new swimming and climbing abilities, to the addition of new weapons and abilities to Infinity Ward, we'll now be able to run four new perks without having to use Wildcard.
New Perk System In Modern Warfare 2
You don't choose three bonuses in Modern Warfare 2, instead you customize and select a perk package for yourself, which consists of two "Base Perks", one "Bonus Perk," and one "Ultimate Perk." After about four minutes into the match, you unlock the "Bonus Perk" and eight minutes later you unlock the "Ultimate Perk."
Here's how the perk package selection screen looks like:
The "Assault," "Phantom," "Hunter," and "Deadeye" perk packages are the default packages that will be unlocked for all players. However, you may modify your own to suit your playstyle.
