You all know what perks are in Call of Duty games, right? Of course you do, unless you've lived in a cave for the last 8 years. Anyway, CoD: Ghosts has 35 of them.
The perks system in Ghosts
has had a bit of a revamp since previous Call of Duty
titles. See, each perk has a point rating from 1-5, and players have 8-12 points available to use.
Your primary weapon, secondary weapon, lethal equipment and tactical equipment all cost one perk point. Using all four of these leaves you eight points to spend on perks, but, you have the option to drop any and all of these in exchange for an extra perk point per.
Essentially, that means you could be running around with no primary or secondary weapon & no equipment, but you'd have a knife and 12 points worth of perks on your side - it's entirely your choice.
Anyway, enough of that - check out how the perks are split up below:Speed
