Perks in MW2 are divided into three levels: Basic, Bonus, and Ultimate. Below, we''ll look at our recommendations for each of these slots, as well as our opinions on the overall best perks in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
What are the best perks in Modern Warfare 2?
Many of the perks in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be familiar to previous COD games, but there is a significant difference in how they work this time around. In MW2, players choose two Basic Perks, and their Bonus and Ultimate perks are unlocked four and eight minutes into each match.
Here is our recommendation for the most cost effective Modern Warfare 2 options to choose for loadingouts:
- Perk 1: Overkill
- Perk 2: Double Time
- Bonus Perk: Quick Fix
- Ultimate Perk: Bird''''s Eye
This perk scheme will provide players with a lot of survivability and situational awareness, as well as the ever-useful benefit of two primary weapons. However, these aren''t the only useful features in Modern Warfare 2. Below, we''ll explain some of the other rewards in the game, and which are the most appropriate options for each perk slot.
Best Modern Warfare 2 perks: Basic slot
In Modern Warfare 2, you can choose two out of eight Basic Perks. In our opinion, the greatest Basic Perks are Overkill, Double Time, and Battle Hardened.
Overkill has been a regular feature of Call Of Duty loadouts for years: because it allows you to draw two primary weapons rather than compete in many positions. The extra mobility provided by Double Time is excellent in modern Warfare 2''s particularly fast-paced matches, and Battle Hardened is excellent for combating the ever-present impact of stun and flash grenades.
Best Modern Warfare 2 perks: Bonus slot
Your bonus perk is unlocked 4 minutes into each match. There are six options to choose from, but our favourite Bonus Perks are Quick Fix and Cold-Blooded.
Quick Fix is another fantastic survivability feature that suits the rapid pace of MW2''s matches, providing instant health regen upon killing enemies. Cold-Blooded is also helpful for keeping you off the enemy''s radar, and as well as assisting you in avoiding enemy killstreak attacks.
Best Modern Warfare 2 perks: Ultimate slot
Your Ultimate Perk in Modern Warfare 2 is unlocked eight minutes into a match, so you don''t see its effects as often as other features in your toolkit. Bird''s Eye and Ghost are the best Ultimate Perks to choose right now.
Bird''s Eye exposes the enemy red dots on the map, which is hugely useful for situational awareness. Ghost is Bird''s Eye, which makes you invisible to UAVs and other methods of detection, making it ideal for flank attacks and taking the enemy by surprise.
