Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is getting very close to release, and we now know a lot more about how the loadout system is going to work. This was one of the most important factors in Modern Warfare, so it’s something you need to know about Black Ops Cold War. The Black Ops Cold War perks are unique abilities that you can add to your loadout. They allow you to fine-tune your players’ interactions and stats to make them perfectly suited to your play style. Key to building the best Cold War loadouts is to make sure that everything in your loadout is working in harmony.
This guide covers all of the Cold War Black Ops perks that we currently know about. These are the options that you’re going to have in-game, and what kind of players should be looking to use them. Your perks are an important part of your loadout, and some you’ll already be familiar with.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Perks Guide – Tier 1 Perks
This perk allows you to detect enemy equipment and scorestreaks through walls. You can also see enemy scorestreaks on the minimap and re-roll care packages. This is a pretty nice utility for a team to have to stay ahead of the curve. No more than one player really needs to be running it, but as a team-wide utility, it has some use.
Your damage from explosives and Molotovs is reduced. This is a pretty standard perk and one that shows up in one form or another in a lot of Call of Duty games. Great for those who need to stand up to fragging.
You become immune to gas. You’re also immune to flash and stun grenades. Like with Flack Jacket, this is a fairly circumstantial defense. You can probably use it to make up for something of a shortfall in the way that you play. Or it might be best to be saved until you get particularly tilted from a certain type of death.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Perks Guide – Tier 2 Perks
This one of the Black Ops Cold War perks recharges your equipment 25 seconds faster. This one has a lot of utilities, but one really stands out. You can this to turn into a pretty ferocious fragger. With the right choice of equipment, this perk can enable a heavily explosive and offensive attack.
This perk allows you to replenish ammo from fallen players. If you die a lot, then this one isn’t going to be too helpful, since you get plenty of re-dos. For some types of players though, this can be an important tool for getting those scorestreaks.
This one of the Black Ops Cold War perks lets you see a faint version of enemy footprints. If you take the time to aim at the footprints, then you can see your enemies on the minimap. This one is a little similar Engineer with it being great as a utility. A support or side player on a team using this can really be a big help. If you call out enemy locations, then you should be able to really get a lot of use out of this one.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Perks Guide – Tier 3
This is a pretty standard Call of Duty perk, but it has a different twist here. Scorestreaks that are targeted with AI cannot target you. Player scorestreaks won’t highlight you either. Players in vehicles can’t see your name, and you’re undetectable by thermal scopes. This is a particularly helpful version of Cold Blooded. You’re undetectable by a good amount of things, essentially you need to be actually spotted by enemies.
Ghost makes you undetectable by enemy spy planes while you’re moving, dealing with bombs, or controlling scorestreaks. This isn’t as effective as in Modern Warfare, but it will keep you safe while vulnerable. While not specific to any one type of player, it might be a good idea to have a player running ghost to take care of the bomb.
With this one of the Black Ops Cold War perks, you can sprint quite a bit quicker and you’re resistant to the Field Mix Field Upgrade. This one is a bit more specialist, but the increased run speed can help everyone from offensive attackers to support players.
Those are all of the Black Ops Cold War perks that we currently know about. Between them, there should be one that will help every single player in the game. We’ll have more guides up to help you build the perfect loadout in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.
