Perks are no stranger to Call of Duty and Black Ops Cold War is not looking to be the exception in this regard. Similar to Modern Warfare, perks are separated into three different categories. This separation ensures that certain Create-A-Class loadouts don’t become wildly overpowered.
We have collected the full list of available perks available once Create-A-Class opens up at Level 4. Each perk designated below is paired with its level unlock requirement. If no level is listed, the equipment is unlocked by default after custom loadouts can be accessed.
Keep in mind that this information was pulled from the beta and is subject to change. The guide will be updated if Treyarch alters any of this information by or before the full release.
