Black Ops 2 Perks Guide

Here’s the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Perks Guide with the full Black Ops 2 Perks list for you to peruse and see how each Perk can be unlocked.

Black Ops 2 multiplayer designer, David Vondehaar, has been quoted as saying the new Perks System progress is simplified yet expanded.

  • To quote the C&VG Magazine interview: “Perks were pretty important for us to rethink, because they were getting too complex. You had perks, perk pros, perks that influence you, perks that influence your gun, perks that influence team mates. We’ve simplified that so perks only ever affect your character, and more importantly, Black Ops II’s perks aren’t absolutes. In Black Ops our only balancing options were to remove the perk or keep it; now we can tune any perk by increments to nerf it or improve it.

    I can nerf perks and I will, mark my words. A perk should never be something you need just to compete. A perk is ‘I got a parking spot,’ or ‘the soda machine gave me free soda.’ Your life shouldn’t depend on it. The community helped me understand that, and that’s why our new system has no absolutes. We can try to make it the most balanced CoD ever.” This is why there’s no more Last/Final Stand nor Second Chance in multiplayer.
