Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Perks Guide – Best Perks, Weapon Perks

Like all previous Call of Duty titles, perks play a vital role when it comes to the performance of your gear and character in the multiplayer matches. The latest reboot of the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is no different in that regard. Read down below to get informed about all the perks and their effects.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Perks

As part of the Multiplayer Mode reveal event hosted for COD: Modern Warfare, several perks were introduced and most of them are new to the series.

Unlike previous entries, perks are not restricted to the character, so there is a lot of potential and opportunity when it comes to weapon attachments.

Presumably, these new perks for guns will essentially replace traditional weapon mods from the previous installments.

The capacity of the perks dictates that a player can have 4 Perks equipped at a given time. Three of these are limited to a character while the remaining one has to be related to your weapon of choice.

Without further ado, we have listed the perks and their relevance below. Starting first, we will look at three categories of character-related perks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Perk 1
