Modern Warfare 2 Perks – all abilities

Having all the right information is half of the battle, isn’t that what GI Joe used to say? Well anyway, each Call of Duty game has varied a lot in what they allow you to bring on the battlefield and the effectiveness of your loadout. So, it is more than smart to know everything about Modern Warfare 2 Perks.

What are those? Well, simply put they are passive benefits given to an Operator because of their multiplayer loadout. It was Modern Warfare 2 which introduced the “Perks pack”, which basically means for each match you will have two base Perks, and two extras, Bonus and Ultimate, earned during the game.

Waiting is the key to earn these bonus perks, with default times being four minutes for a Bonus perk and eight for an Ultimate one. Clearly those times can be reduced by playing the right way, making kills or doing assists. So, let’s check out what Modern Warfare 2 Perks you can use.
