We can now reveal all the perks in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – at least those available at the community reveal on May 17th.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 community reveal may be over, but developers Treyarch invited a number of well known personalities in the community to stream some multplayer gameplay live.
Treyarch of course revealed before the reveal that perks would be returning for their fourth Black Ops instalment, putting at ease any fans who were discontent with CoD: WWII’s ‘Division’ system.
So, in typical Treyarch fashion, we have some classic perks returning such as ‘Scavenger’ and the infamous ‘Ghost’, as well as some new ones too.
Thanks to TheExclusiveAce’s livestream from the Treyarch Studios, we have been given an exclusive look at the perks (currently) in the game.
Note that there is a good chance there will be more perks (typically six per tier) in the full game.
Perk Tier 1
Show enemy equipment and scorestreaks. Lock on to vehicles faster.
Take less damage from enemy explosives, fire and radiation.
Resistant to 9 Bang, Concussion, Razor Wire and Counter UAV.
Resistant to scorestreak targeting systems.
Perk Tier 2
Replenish ammo from fallen players.
Mantle, climb, slide and swap weapons faster. Increased weapon accuracy when jumping or mantling.
Fire your weapon and use equipment while sprinting. Recover from sprint faster. Move at full speed when reloading.
Move faster and take no damage when falling.
Perk Tier 3
Increased Fog of War reveal radius for self and teammates.
Move quietly and resist detection from acoustic sensor.
See friendly teammates through walls.
Undetectable by enemy UAV’s while moving, planting or defusing bombs or controlling scorestreaks. Reduced reveal time on enemy sensor darts and vision pulse.
Wildcards are also returning for Black Ops 4, and include the standard perk greeds (allowing you to take two perks from one tier), and overkill (take two primary weapons) and a new ‘underkill’ (take two secondary weapons.
Fans will have to wait until the private beta to try their hand at the new perks.
