Modern Warfare 3 is going to change the perk system and reintroduce some old fan-favorites like Dead Silence. Here are the MW3 perks we've seen so far.
You may not have seen this news at the time, but in early-2023 we heard about a new system coming to CoD with the Modern Warfare 3 Perks. Instead of dividing the perks into three arbitrary categories letting players pick one from each, they are now going to divide the perks into five categories, with each category being represented by a piece of armor.
The new perk "categories" will be Boots, Pants, Jackets, Gloves and Helmets. Here are the kinds of MW3 perks you can expect in each category:
- Boots: Mobility based perks that can give you bonuses to running, swimming, climbing, sliding and moving quietly.
- Vests: This category will contain perks like Flack Jacket, which will allow you to take extra explosive damage.
- Gloves: Perks that improve your overall dexterity; weapon swapping, reloading, aim-down-sight speeds and such.
- Helmets: We haven't had leaks regarding these perks yet.
This new perk system makes a fair bit of sense, and the perks we've seen leaked so far sound awesome (spoiler alert: Dead Silence is back... Kinda).
Modern Warfare 3 Perks | Leaked
The Modern Warfare 3 perks we know about so far come from a leaker who goes by various names but who was originally called "Bob Network UK". This guy has been the primary source for almost all the biggest news pieces you've heard this year regarding MW3 and the future of Warzone. His information has been proven correct on countless occasions, so at this point we have full confidence in the info. His current handle is El Bobberto.
MW3 Perks: Boots
These are the Boots perks, and it makes a lot of sense they are all in this category:
|Canvas Sneakers||Eliminates footstep sounds.|
|Stalker Boots||Increased strafe & ADS movement speed.|
|Tactical Pads||Increases slide distance & allows for full ADS while sliding. Increases stance transition speeds & crouched movement speed.|
|Ultra Light Boots||Increases movement & swim speed. Reduces noise while swimming.|
|Running Sneakers||Increases Tac Sprint duration & reduces refresh time.|
|Climbing Boots||Increased climbing & mantling speed. Reduces fall damage.|
Thank god Dead Silence is back, that's just one more reason to be hyped about MW3.
MW3 Perks: Vests
We have the names for the Vests, but we don't have exact descriptions of what each perk does. So these names are correct, but the descriptions for this category are just community predictions:
|Perk Name||Predicted Effect|
|Overkill Vest||Two primary weapons.|
|Grenadier Vest||Two lethal grenades.|
|Scout Vest||Maybe Ghost?|
We will hopefully have the official answers soon.
MW3 Perks: Gloves
Here are the Gloves perks we've heard about so far:
|Assault Gloves||While jumping, these gloves will reportedly improve accuracy and time to ADS.|
|Custom Gloves||These will increase weapon swap speed.|
|Scavenger Gloves||These will reportedly help resupply ammo and throwing knives from dead players.|
|Specialist Gloves||These will help throw equipment further and reset fuse timer on thrown-back grenades.|
|Tactical Combat Gloves||These will reportedly enable reloading while sprinting.|
|Marksman Gloves||These are reported to reduce sway and flinch while ADS.|
It's very cool to see multiple perks in the game that will actually promote movement rather than punish it.
MW3 Perks: Helmets
Helmets haven't been leaked so far, we expect perks like High Alert, Tracker and Battle Hardened will fall into this category.
And there you have it, all the perks leaked so far for Modern Warfare 3. Do you like the new armor-based perk system? What about the perks themselves, are you happy to see the return of Dead Silence?
