Best Minor Perks

  • Close Call: Getting an extra vehicle boost is always good and this perk will boost up your charge whenever there is a close call, making it a cool and useful perk!
  • Dead Eye: You will not want a faster reload and Dead eye increases the reload speed which provides a huge advantage in combat. So, this is one of the best perks in the game.

Best Major and Elite Perks

  • On the Down Low: This perk allows you to gain less attention when causing mischief which is a welcome advantage for all.

  • Surgical Strike: Whenever you hit a headshot, you will be able to deal much more damage to the enemy which is great.
  • Rampage: Rampage greatly compliments In the Flow perk as it is capable of generating the flow meter and when its full, rampage will kick in, allowing you to do much more damage.
