A notorious Call of Duty leaker claims that they already know the full list of perks for Modern Warfare’s multiplayer mode – as well as details on possible weapon-specific boosts.

With the build-up to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare well underway, ‘leaks’ regarding multiplayer are becoming a much more regular occurrence. Though neither Infinity Ward or Activision have released any confirmed details, that hasn’t stopped leakers from seemingly beating them to the punch. 

YouTuber TheGamingRevolution has previously reported information about the game’s killstreaks, an apparent battle royale mode, and changes to the competitive scene through the use of special ops. Now, the CoD content creator has apparently stumbled onto more information about multiplayer.

According to the YouTuber’s recent upload, Modern Warfare will have around 16 perks but did not give any details on possible pro versions. He also stressed that the names of these perks may change moving forward. 

As of right now, only two names may be familiar to long-time Call of Duty fans – with Scavenger and Cold-Blooded seemingly making a return. Other perks that are listed have similar descriptions to a number of classic perks, however, their names are pretty different. 

The full list of Modern Warfare perks reported by TheGamingRevolution is:

  • Scavenger – Pick up ammo from bodies
  • Cold-Blooded – Immune to UAV’s
  • Munitions – Replace secondary weapon with a primary
  • High Alert – On-screen alert when an enemy spots you
  • Tune-Up – Carry another lethal piece of equipment
  • Restock – Recharges lethal and tacticals 
  • Double Time – Adds to the duration of sprinting
  • Spotter – Highlights enemy equipment 
  • Battle Hardened – Reduce effects of flashbangs 
  • Heavy Metal – Earn killstreaks by using killstreaks 
  • Shrapnel – More damage with grenades
  • EOD – Reduce grenade damage 
  • Hunter – See enemy footprints
  • Warhead – Reload RPG quicker
  • Bounty Hunter – Claim another player’s killstreak towards your own
  • Ghost – TBD

The YouTuber also claims that there will be perks that players can equip to weapons instead of a class – seemingly giving an extra situation-dependant boost to a gun.

A number of these weapon-specific perks have seemingly been used in previous games as traditional perks, with TheGamingRevolution even rattling off some classic descriptions. However, he also claims that the full list of these perks has not been set and only 10 can be named so far.

These are: 

  • FMJ
  • Sleight of Hand
  • Infinite Breath
  • Skulker
  • Mo’ Money
  • Bayonet
  • Supersonic
  • Glacial
  • Richochet
  • Shrapnel Shots

Of course, all of this information is currently unconfirmed and solely stems from TheGamingRevolution’s apparent source within the game’s development. 

A number of details could very well change before the game’s multiplayer mode is premiered, never mind prior to the release date. Until then, it’s probably best to take things with a pinch of salt until official details are revealed – even though many of these perks do sound pretty plausible. 

Infinity WardThe only confirmed details about Modern Warfare are regarding single-player.

Neither Infinity Ward or Activision have stated when their Modern Warfare multiplayer reveal will happen, but considering the game launches on October 25, it can’t be too far away. 

Until then, we can probably expect more and more ‘leaks’ as community members try their best at beating everyone else by claiming to have the inside track on Modern Warfare.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
