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

Engineer

Show enemy equipment and scorestreaks. Lock on to vehicles faster.

Flak Jacket

Take less damage from enemy explosives, fire and radiation.

Resistance

Resistant to 9 Bang, Concussion, Razor Wire and Counter UAV.

Cold Blooded

Resistant to scorestreak targeting systems.

Perk Tier 2

Scavenger

Replenish ammo from fallen players.

Dexterity

Mantle, climb, slide and swap weapons faster. Increased weapon accuracy when jumping or mantling.

Gung-Ho

Fire your weapon and use equipment while sprinting. Recover from sprint faster. Move at full speed when reloading.

Lightweight

Move faster and take no damage when falling.

Perk Tier 3

Reveal

Increased Fog of War reveal radius for self and teammates.

Dead Silence

Move quietly and resist detection from acoustic sensor.

Team Link

See friendly teammates through walls.

Ghost

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.

Nadeshot’s 2011 Tweet about quitting McDonald’s goes viral again

A historic tweet from Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, 100 Thieves founder and ex-Call of Duty professional, has resurfaced, showing the future esports star questioning whether he should quit his job at McDonalds. 

The story of Nadeshot’s rise to esports royalty is well known, with the 100 Thieves owner originally making a name for himself as an OpTic Gaming Call of Duty player. Alongside Scump, he became one of the world’s best known CoD players, renowned for his talent and inherently likeable personality on camera.

His time as a CoD player peaked with a Gold Medal at the X Games back in Call of Duty Ghosts, stealing the crown from under the noses of Team Kaliber after a memorable win over Evil Geniuses in the semi-final. But, his success out of game is also crucial, as content creation is the main reason he stood out among other pro players.

A controversial split from OpTic Gaming after Advanced Warfare struggles signalled the end of Nadeshot’s time as a professional CoD player, but his involvement in the esports scene remains as strong as ever.

The founder of 100 Thieves, Nadeshot’s organization currently compete in League of Legends and Valorant. Sources have also indicated to Dexerto that they will soon enter the Call of Duty League, buying Los Angeles OpTic’s slot in the league.

However, reminders of where Nadeshot has come from are frequent, with a 2011 Tweet resurfacing amid attention from big esports names. The Tweet, dated March 27, 2011, sees Nadeshot flirting with the idea of quitting his job at McDonalds.

“Who wants to see me quit McDonalds within this next week or two?!” it reads, representing what a big move his resignation was at the time of the tweet. At this time, he was competing in Call of Duty, and his YouTube/streaming career was just taking off.

Nade himself quoted his tweet with a Ferris Bueller reference, saying how fast life moves:

After the Tweet caught traction on October 30, new replies reflect just how far Nade has come, with H3CZ joking that he’s “got a house” for him to live in. The throwback will be nostalgic for many, as Nadeshot’s time on OpTic Gaming approaches a decade old.

Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem responded, joking that it was worth sticking it out at McDonalds because they’re set to raise the national minimum wage. Regardless, we’re sure owning 100 Thieves is a more lucrative career.

Two-time CoD World Champion JKap also got involved, joking that leaving McDonalds would be “risky” for Nadeshot. It was certainly a risk, but it’s paid off 1000 times over.

Away from big names, many people were quick to comment on how inspirational they found Nadeshot’s rise, targeting similar rises of their own.

One Twitter user said “Follow your dreams. This man is living proof”, while another said: “This is my goal, friends. Soon. Promise.”

Nadeshot’s prominence in the world of esports is testament to his attitude and talent, complemented by a serious amount of hard work. We look forward to hearing similarly inspirational stories from the next generation of esports icons.
