The recently released Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is being characterized as a more tactical and slower experience than its predecessor, meaning that the player’s choice of loadout and playstyle is more important than ever. With so many new features being added to the popular Battle Royale, players are still fine-tuning their choices to find the best possible fit for success on the battlefield.
As always, perks are a very important aspect of gameplay Call of Duty: Warzone 2. However, the title’s new perk system works in a completely different way than the original War zone, with players now having to choose one of a handful of benefit packs. Given these benefits packages are transferred from Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer, some more suited to the Battle Royale format than others.
Basics of Warzone 2’s perk packs
Unlike the original Warzone’s perk system that allowed players to select a number of perks within a specific loadout, available in-game via a loadout drop, war zone 2 turns the formula on its head. The newer title has essentially done away with loadouts, instead splitting a player’s class into different segments.
war zone 2 perks are now divided into base, bonus and ultimate perks, which are spread across eight pack presets that cannot be changed or shuffled. Because of this limitation, the importance of which perk pack preset a player chooses is crucial. The choice essentially dictates which gaming options are available.
The best perk packs in Call of Duty: Warzone 2
Many of the benefit packages in war zone 2 share similar ultimate benefits, as the most useful and desirable. High Alert is an ultimate perk, which allows players to receive a vision pulse when enemies spot them. This provides a huge advantage for combat in the densely populated map of Al Mazrah, and players should choose the Commando perk to get the most out of it.
Alongside High Alert, Commando comes with Scavenger as a base perk, allowing the player to scavenge ammo from dead bodies from the start of a match, plus faster reloading comes as a bonus. Ghost perk is without a doubt the most important for war zone 2, making the player undetectable by UAVs, portable radars, and heartbeat sensors. Players who want this ultimate perk should choose the Specter perk, which allows for double sprint duration and the ability to see enemy footprints.
Overclocking is another ultimate perk, which allows players to charge up the many field upgrades War zone. The Warden perk pack features Overclock along with faster reload and sprint, making it a perfect choice for a more aggressively minded player. Another perk pack worth picking up is the unique Weapon Specialist pack, which allows the player to carry two custom primary weapons using the Overkill perk.
The Survivor ultimate perk for the Weapons Specialist pack will also allow a player to be revived faster, and will ping an enemy that knocks them down in battle. It also includes the Spotter bonus perk, which allows enemy equipment to be seen through walls so they can be hacked. While all of War zone 2 perk packs have something to offer, these options have some of the best possible perk mixes for the battle royale experience.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
