Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Teases Multiplayer Perks

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Teases Multiplayer Perks

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s full reveal isn’t until May 17, but that hasn’t stopped developer Treyarch from teasing fans with what’s to come. The studio previously teased that the Pick 10 customization system will be returning in the game, and now it has posted an image on Twitter that may reveal some of the multiplayer perks that will be available.

The new Twitter image is accompanied by some text that reads: “Don’t worry, we know some people . . . which has its perks. . .” The image itself shows four perks that will presumably be featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and while we can’t say for sure what each perk is, we can make some educated guesses based on their designs.

It seems likely that the first image, of a soldier climbing a ladder, is the Dexterity perk. Dexterity, for those unfamiliar, is a perk that allows players to climb ladders faster, in addition to other benefits. The second image, of a gun being reloaded, is likely the Fast Hands perk, which allows players to reload faster. The hyena perk seems to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s version of Scavenger, which allows players to gather extra supplies off dead players. And finally, the image of a person running could be Extreme Conditioning (which increases sprint time) or Dead Silence (which quiets one’s footsteps in the game).

Of course, these guesses could be way off-base, and it’s possible these are all completely new perks Treyarch has designed for Black Ops 4. Ultimately, fans will have to wait for the proper reveal on May 17 to learn more about the perks and how they will factor into the game’s multiplayer.

May 17 should also lay to rest or confirm some of the rumors that have been floating around about Black Ops 4‘s multiplayer. So far, rumors have suggested that Black Ops 4‘s multiplayer is similar to Overwatch, and that the game will have a battle royale mode. Treyarch has yet to comment on these rumors, and so it will be interesting to see what the reveal event has in store come May 17.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will launch on October 12 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
