For those of you who don’t know what perks are, then it’s pretty simple. As you progress through the game, you are given ‘perks,’ which are an addition to the game that allow you to customize the way your class plays. It’s kinda like having a customized skill point that gives you an advantage over other players who chose different perks in that slot. A player or class only ever gets 3 perks maximum. In each slot, you get a choice of 5 separate perks, each with its own ‘pro’ version of that perk.
Perk Slot #1 – The perks in slot 1 are Lightweight, Scavenger, Ghost, Flak Jacket and Hardline, each with a pro version added to them.
Perk Slot #2 – The perks in slot 2 are Hardened, Scout, Steady Aim, Sleight of Hand and Warlord, again with pro versions of the said perk.
Perk Slot #3 – The perks in slot 3 are Tactical Mask, Marathon, Ninja, Second Chance, Hacker. Yes, you guessed it, all have a pro perk aswell.
To see what each of these perks do, check out the source below and then come back to tell us what perk setup you will use when you get your hands on Black Ops. I think i’ll go for Ghost / Ghost Pro, Warlord / Warlord Pro, and Ninja / Ninja Pro — but I would also like to try out Hacker / Hacker Pro as the pro abilities sound great.
