So far Black Ops Cold War doesn’t have any new perks but it does bring back some old favorites
On Wednesday, Treyarch revealed the mutliplayer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and let players know some of the game’s brand new additions. The game features a slightly upgraded version of the Create-a-Class system from previous games, and that includes perks for players to mix and match.
Ahead of Treyarch’s multiplayer reveal on Sept. 9, Polygon got some time to try out the multiplayer during a short demo. During that time, we checked out the Create-a-Class feature and every perk that was available during the demo. None of the perks in the Black Ops Cold War demo were new to the series, some haven’t been in a Call of Duty game for a few years, and others received a few small changes this time around.
The complete list of perks found in that demo is below. We’ll continue to update this post as we get closer to launch and more perks are revealed.
