To be prepared for the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, you must know about all Perks in Modern Warfare 2. Perks are a salient part of Call of Duty's multiplayer that players have been using and mastering to get an edge over their opponents to win matches, get high killstreaks, or survive long enough to muster up some EXP Points. With the imminent re-release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, players must know about its new Perk System, the Perk Packages, how to unlock Perks, and other similar things. In the wake of that, we have prepared this handy guide on all Perks in Modern Warfare 2 that explains everything you need to know. 

All Perks In Modern Warfare 2

When writing this article, Modern Warfare 2 has six Perk Packages, where every Perk Package offers two Base Perks, one Bonus Perk, and one Ultimate Perk, totalling twenty-four Perks. However, one or more Base Perks for some of the Perk Packages are the same. Like in the Assault Perk Package, one of the Base Perks is Overkill, whereas the same Perk exists as Base Perk in the Deadeye Perk Package. 

That aside, the Bonus and Ultimate Perks of any Perk Package are unique and earned during matches. So excluding the same perks, we have twenty-one unique Perks in Modern Warfare 2. That said, here are the Perk Packages currently provided in the game.

You will unlock Perks by reaching Rank 4 in Modern Warfare 2. Once you do that, you will get access to Custome Loadouts and Perk Packages, where you can select a Perk Package that suits your gameplay style. 

How To Get Bonus Perks In Modern Warfare 2

Click to enlarge

You get Bonus Perks in Modern Warfare 2 during matches four minutes after you enter a multiplayer game. You can reduce this time by stacking kills and other such things, and every kill reduces the Bonus Perk unlock time by 12.5 seconds. 

How To Get Ultimate Perks In Modern Warfare 2

The Ultimate Perks share the same behaviour as the Bonus Perks in Modern Warfare 2. The only difference here is that, instead of four minutes, you must wait eight minutes after entering a match to unlock the Ultimate Perk. Though, you can always reduce this time by getting extra kills. 

Modern Warfare 2's New Perk System

Instead of two or three Perks that you could equip based on your choice in the previous Call of Duty games, Modern Warfare 2 takes a nuanced approach by introducing Perk Packages that allow you to equip four Perks at once, which you cannot edit as per your choice. This new Perk system is a roleplay element that will enable players to play the roles of Assault, Support, Sniper, Scout, and Assassin.
