Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perks - every perk in the game

Modern Warfare is packed with perks that affect everything from sprint time to stealth, here’s everyone we’ve seen so far

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perks are buffs you can pick for your soldier as part of the create-a-class system. If you’ve played a Call of Duty game in the past, you’ll no doubt be familiar with many of the perks present in Modern Warfare 2019, but the perks system works a little differently in this year’s COD entry.

For starters, there are three perk trees, just as there were in COD 4, you have the Perk 1, Perk 2, and Perk 3 slots. The first perk slot focuses on speed, with perks that let you use Tactical Sprint for longer, resupply ammo from dead enemies, or move faster while crouching. Perk 2’s range of options help a lot with killstreaks, boasting perks that let you earn killstreaks for fewer kills and add to your streaks with kills from killstreaks. Lastly, Perk 3 is all about tech, with perks that grant extra equipment, charge you Call of Duty: Modern Warfare equipment faster, and get more from your Modern Warfare Field Upgrades.

So, whether you want to equip two primary Call of Duty: Modern Warffare weapons to one class, or turn your Modern Warfare killstreaks into scorestreaks, we’ve got you covered. Here are all the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perks we’ve seen so far.
