Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Launch Perks: Full List


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is just days away from its full release, and Activision have listed all the Perks coming to the multiplayer mode at launch.

Despite campaign early access having been live for a few days already, many are looking forward to the game's upcoming multiplayer. With that comes the anticipation of the mode's launch features, including the many Perks players will be able to utilize. Perks have been given a bit of an overhaul in the upcoming game, introducing Perk Packages which are equipped as part of a Multiplayer Loadout.

According to the Call of Duty blog, each Package consists of four Perks: Two Base Perks plus one Bonus Perk and one Ultimate Perk. Operators begin each match with their two Base Perks, unlocking the Bonus and Ultimate Perks over time, with eliminations and assists, plus objective and tactical plays that help to unlock them more quickly.

Below, we've listed all of the Perks that players can expect to see at launch for Modern Warfare 2.
