Call of Duty: Ghosts Perk System Detailed
Infinity Ward released new details regarding the refreshed Perks system in Call of Duty: Ghosts. The new system allows players to customize their characters in a number of different ways, and tailor it to their personal play style.
Each perk is weighted with a specific point value ranging between 1 and 5 points, and players will be able to spend between 8-12 per round, depending on their specific loadout and the options they choose. Perks can be earned the traditional way of playing through the game and unlocking along the way, or by spending squad points. Squad points are also earned through playing the multiplayer game, and serve as Ghosts's in-game currency.
A full list of the detailed perk system is below, broken up by category, and the full post is available on the official Call of Duty: Ghosts website.
Call of Duty: Ghosts launches November 5 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC, PlayStation 4 on November 15, and Xbox One on November 22.
