Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War perks

Looking for a list of all the Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War perks? Here’s a complete list of the best perks that you can find in Black Ops Cold War, including their descriptions.

If you were expecting any shiny new perks that will threaten to upset the meta, then you may be disappointed: all of the perks in Call of Duty Cold War have been seen in one guise or another multiple times in the series. With a much greater emphasis on vehicular warfare and traversal equipment like ziplines – not to mention the return or swimming and underwater fighting.

As ever, the perks are split into three trees with no specific name and you can select one perk from each of the three trees to shape your best class. There are also Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War wildcards that allow you to pick six perks or pick all the perks from one tree, so we should see some interesting builds in multiplayer.
