Return to Top Perks

Tier 1
Marathon gives the user an infinite sprint duration, replacing the Extreme Conditioning perk. It is one of the first perks in Create a Class, unlocked at the start of the game.
Pro Version
The pro version of Marathon is unlocked after the player has sprinted 26 miles while it is equipped. The Pro version allows the user to go over cover faster, allowing for quick battlefield maneuvers. It should be noted that while players vault objects faster, their sprint speed on level ground is still the same.

Sleight of Hand
Sleight of Hand drastically reduces the time spent reloading. Once again, it is best used with support weapons with long reload times such as the MG4 and the RPD. Sleight of Hand is also useful with the new bullpup rifles (such as the TAR-21, AUG HBAR, FAMAS, and others) as bullpups all have slower reload times than regular rifles.
Pro version
Halves the time needed to aim down the sights, and is unlocked by getting 120 kills with a class using Sleight of Hand. This benefit is ideal for quick-scoping with sniper rifles, as the time spent to bring up the rifle is drastically reduced. Likewise, it is a useful pro perk for LMGs, as they possess the slowest ADS time. This effect stacks with Lightweight Pro’s faster aim-after-sprint ability.

Scavenger partially restocks a player’s weapon loadout if they walk over scavenge packs dropped by player’s corpses, regardless of any loadout differences between the player and the dead player. This perk also acts as a replacement for the ammo perks from the other games such as Bandolier and Frag x3, since it allows the player to restock on equipment.
Pro Version
The Pro version of Scavenger is unlocked once a player has resupplied 100 times while using Scavenger. Scavenger Pro allows the player to spawn with full ammo for the weapons he or she has, replacing the Bandolier perk from previous games.

It allows players to put two attachments on their primary weapon. Bling Pro is unlocked by getting 200 kills while the Bling perk is equipped.
Pro Version
Allows the player to put two attachments on their secondary weapon.

One Man Army
It allows the user to switch classes without needing to respawn, unlocked at level 45. However, as downside, it removes the user’s secondary weapon.
Pro Version
One Man Army Pro is unlocked after a player has received 120 kills while using the One Man Army perk. One Man Army Pro reduces the time required to perform the class change to three seconds.

Tier 2
Stopping Power
Increases the damage dealt by bullets fired from primary or secondary weapons by 40%.
Pro Version
The Pro version of Stopping Power is unlocked after achieving 250 kills with a class using Stopping Power. It gives the user increased damage against enemy vehicles such as Harriers and Pave Lows.

Allows players to move faster.
Pro Version
When upgraded to Pro, after sprinting 30 miles with the perk equipped, users are able to fire their weapons faster after sprinting.

Allows the player to gain their killstreak rewards with one less kill
Pro Version
The Pro version of the perk allows deathstreaks to be activated by one less death.

Cold Blooded
Allows the user to be invisible to all forms of air support. The vision for Chopper Gunners, AC-130s and Predator Missiles show players with the perk active, but do not pinpoint them with a red outline square.
Pro Version
The Pro version prevents the red name and cross-hairs from appearing on an enemy’s screen when they are looking at the user.

Danger Close
Increases explosive damage by 40%.
Pro Version
Increases damage from all killstreaks that attack enemy players, such as Chopper Gunner, by 40% and is unlocked by getting 100 kills with explosives while using this perk

Tier 3

Increases the user’s Melee distance.
Pro Version
Pro version (unlocked by making 20 melee kills with the perk equipped, including the knife, tactical knife and the riot shield) completely negates damage from high falls, which can be tactically exploited on maps with long drops such as Quarry, Favela, Afghan, Skidrow, and Underpass.

Ninja stops users from appearing on Heartbeat Sensor attachments. It is unlocked at Rank 29.
Pro Version
The Pro version of this perk is unlocked after players kill 50 players in “close-quarters” while using the perk, and it reduces the movement noise volume (footsteps, mantling and climbing) by 75%

Enemy equipment will appear filled with a bright crimson color which shimmers to catch the eye
Pro Version
The Pro version makes enemy footsteps four times louder and makes the player and their teammates’ footsteps four times quieter, allowing the player to better distinguish enemy movements, and from much further away than normal

Steady Aim
This perk increases the accuracy of a weapon when fired from the hip by reducing the size of the cross-hairs by 35%
Pro Version
The Pro version allows the player to hold their breath longer while using a Sniper Scope or Thermal Scope

Scrambles the radar of nearby enemies, leaving only static.
Pro Version
The Pro version of this perk protects players from enemy Claymores by increasing the time between detection and detonation.

Last Stand
If a player receives damage which brings them down to 10 health or less, they will drop into a kneeling position and take out their pistol (unless they already had their pistol out) with max ammo
Pro Version
llows the player to use equipment while in Last Stand, such as a primary grenade.

5 kills- Sentry Gun

Can be destroyed by a launcher or a predator missile. Immune to regular guns. It has 2 flares meaning at least 3 rockets must be shot.
