Perks are one of the most important aspects of any Call of Duty title. While they don’t provide firepower like equipment or weapons, they do allow you to implement additional playstyles. Black Ops Cold War currently has 15 perks sprawled out across three different categories, all featuring unique abilities. Some are better than others, but as a whole, the perk selection is fairly decent with the new multiplayer. However, today we’ll be focusing on the best of the best and what you should be using in each of the three categories.

Best perks to use in Black Ops Cold War

The perk system works a little differently in Treyarch’s new multiplayer this year. While the same categories are in place, you’re allowed to mess around with the options in ways players haven’t seen before. This is done through the Wildcard system, which features an option called “Perk Greed.”

Through this Wildcard, players can use six perks (two from each category). While other Wildcards like Gunfighter are also useful, Perk Greed will give you the best bang for your buck. Naturally, Perk Greed will be at the center of what we believe to be the best perk set-up.

For this set-up to fully work, you’ll need to be level 45 in Black Ops Cold War. Once you reach that level, we recommend running the following perks:

Perk 1

  • Flak Jacket
  • Tactical Mask

Perk 2

  • Gearhead
  • Scavenger

Perk 3

  • Ghost
  • Ninja

The above perks allow you to have the best chance of staying alive in a wide variety of situations. You’re protected from equipment by Flak Jacket and Tactical Mask, you can stay off the radar with Ghost, and be silent with Ninja. While there may be some wiggle room with the Perk 2 selections, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better perk set-up in Black Ops Cold War.
