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 perks available in the game.
Modern Warfare II has introduced a slew of new groundbreaking features to the Call of Duty franchise, from the new vehicle mechanics to its swimming and climbing capabilities, as well as all new abilities for the gunsmith and the create-a-class system. We'll now be able to run four additional benefits without having to use Wildcard in MWII?
New Perk System In Modern Warfare 2
In Modern Warfare 2, you don't select three benefits; 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 into the match you unlock your "Ultimate Perk."
Here's how the perk package selection screen appears:
Standard "Assault", "Phantom," "Hunter," and "Deadeye" perk packages are all unlocked for all players. However, you may add and customize your own. So please don't worry, you'll find the benefits that fit your playstyle.
