The Perks of Being a Ghost

By acharris7731-10-2013

Activision has announced the perks system for the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts. Perks are always useful, as being a Ghost is a tough job in itself. Well gamers, how would you like to be able to kill enemies without your their position, Or to fire from the hip with great accuracy. Besides those two, there are 33 other perks going to be available when the game releases next Tuesday.

Here is a general idea of how it works. Each perk is given a point value between one and five, and you will be able to pick 8-points worth as default. Howver, when creating a character, you will be able to min-max other options to make allowances for perks. As an example, if you were to remove your Primary Weapon, Secondary Weapon, Lethal and Tactical slots, you could enter a battle with just a knife and 12 points of perks.

They are unlocked in two ways, reaching their listed level requirement, or cashing in squad points gained in battle. Activision said: "With so many options available, you're bound to see an incredible amount of variety in your multiplayer matches. As always, keep experimenting and fine tuning with all your loadouts in the endless journey to create the perfect Squad." Below are some examples.


Outrun and outmaneuver enemy players. Speed Perks are all about getting the lead and staying ahead. Examples include:

• Sleight of Hand: Faster reloading.

• Stalker: Move faster while aiming.


Dexterity and control drives the Handling Perks, improving actions and accuracy. Examples include:

• On the Go: Reload while sprinting.

• Steady Aim: Increased hip fire accuracy.


Stealth Perks aid you in staying out of sight, maintaining a low profile and engaging on your terms. Examples include:

• Takedown: Kill enemies without revealing their death locations.

• Incog: Resistant to targeting systems including: Recon, Thermal Scope, Tracker Sight and Motion Sensor. No name or red crosshairs when targeted.


Keep in tune with your surroundings. Awareness Perks help you survey the environment and detect enemy players. Examples include:

• SitRep: Detect enemy explosives and tactical equipment.

• Wiretap: Utilize all active enemy and friendly SAT COMs on the field.


A hardened endurance reduces the effects of fatigue. Resistance Perks keep you going through tough engagements. Examples include:

• Focus: Reduced weapon sway when aiming down sights and reduced flinch when hit.

• Blast Shield: Increased resistance to explosive damage.


Tacticians swear by their gear, and Equipment Perks ensure you have the best tools on hand. Examples include:

• Extra Tactical: Additional Tactical equipment.

• Extra Attachment: Extra attachment for your weapons.


Elite Perks offer special abilities that affect your loadouts in a variety of ways. Examples include:

• Gambler: Spawn with a random Perk.

• Ping: Activate a sonar ping upon killing an enemy, revealing nearby hostiles.

Well, not long now before one of the most anticipated games of the year is released, and I think all fans will agree that no-one can wait. So let us know what you think below.
