This will help you understand what the perks do, how to unlock pro and how to do them fast so you can unlock them. [NOTE THAT EACH PERK IN THE GAME COSTS $2000 COD POINTS AND THE PRO VERSION COSTS $3000 COS POINTS] ============================================================================= II. Perk Tier 1 (Blue)  ============================================================================= Lightweight - Move Faster Lightweight Pro - No fall damage Pros: - Move faster - No fall damage when pro Cons: - Can't switch weapons faster like in MW2, - Not as fast like in MW2 (1) Kill the enemy with your knife 15 times (2) Escape death 5 times after being hurt (3) Get 10 offense medals by killing the enemy near their objective - 1st challenge: Is simple just go around knifing people and you’ll complete in no time that is if your good. - 2nd challenge: Is quite simple as well but can be painful sometimes, just get enough red on the screen then run away and heal and repeat to complete this challenge. - 3rd challenge: Is quite easy as well just play a objective game like domination, CTF, sabotage, headquarters, demolition and kill the enemy players when they are trying to complete their objective. Scavenger - Replenish ammo and lethal grenades Scavenger Pro - Start with extra mags and replenish tactical grenades Pros: - Resupply ammo and lethal and tactical grenades Cons: - Can't resupply everything in MW2, only resupply ammo and lethal grenades when not pro, resupply tactical grenades when pro, can't resupply equipment. - Cannot resupply launcher ammo but will start with 1 extra shot. (1) Resupply 150 times (2) Get 5 grenade kills with a scavenged (resupplied) grenade (3) Get 5 kills without dying 5 times - 1st challenge: Is just go around and finding blue packs to resupply, its simple but annoying to pick up 150 bags. - 2nd challenge: Is to throw away your grenade and then resupply and kill someon 5 times to get it [I suggest using a semtex and finding campers to achieve this challenge or if your skilled enough just do it]. - 3rd challenge: Is to be a camper with a motion sensor and just kill the enemy easily, this tactic is the best way to do it unless you’re really skilled and do it without camping. Ghost - Remain undetected from enemy spyplanes Ghost Pro - Remain undetected from enemy aircrafts, infrared scopes Pros: - Almost like colded blooded - Your name or a red crosshair will not appear on the enemy screen when aimed at. Cons: - Must pro it out first before it is good since aircrafts, IR scopes and killstreaks like chopper gunner and gunship can see you. (1) Get 20 kills with a spyplane or blackbird activated (2) Shoot down 30 aircraft killstreaks (3) Destroy 1 enemy sentry gun - 1st challenge: Is to just kill people when the spyplane is on, simple task to do. [NOTE THAT THE SPYPLANE DOES NOT NEED TO BE YOURS TO COMPLETE THIS CHALLENGE]. - 2nd challenge: Is to use the M72 LAW to shoot spyplanes for now, or you can wait till your level 30 to unlock the strela-3 launcher and do this challenge. [MY ADVICE IS TO JUST WAIT TO LEVEL 30 AND COMPLETE THIS, HAVING ONLY 1 SHOT WITH THE M72 LAW WILL TAKE AWHILE.] - 3rd challenge: Finding an enemy sentry gun can be a hard task because not many people use this killstreak, so from what I learned us to unlock the sentry gun killstreak and throw it to the enemy and let them have it, then follow the person who took it and knife it to complete this challenge. Flak Jacket - Take less explosive damage Flak Jacket Pro - Deflect fire damage and reset grenades Pros: - It's like the blast shield except that its a perk, - Reset grenades like in CODWAW. - Pretty much invincible to fire damage including napalm strike after its landed Cons: - (1) Survive 10 explosions (2) Plant/Defuse 10 bomb’s in Demolition, Sabotage, Search and Destroy (3) Throw 5 grenades back - 1st challenge: This is an annoying challenge since many people use semtex instead of frag’s, my suggestion is to do this with a friend almost like boosting in MW2. - 2nd challenge: My Suggestion is to play demolition to complete this challenge the fast. - 3rd challenge: Like challenge 1 just do it with a friend. Hardline - 1 less kill for killstreak Hardline Pro - Change the contents of the care package Pros: - Like MW2 hardline except the pro is replaced with switching care packages to random killstreaks or ammo. Cons: - Nothing really bad about it - No deathstreaks to help you out (1) Share 10 of your care packages (2) Get 7 killstreaks with the hardline perk (3) Get a 7 killstreak without dying - 1st challenge: This can be a daunting task sometimes since people on your team doesn’t want to pick it up, so throw the care package where all your teamates are and then spyplane to keep your care package safe from the enemy, you can also do it like the Flak Jacket challenge 1 with a friend. - 2nd challenge: For this challenge you want to put on small killstreaks like Spyplane, Counter Spyplane and Care Package so the killstreaks are 2,3,4. - 3rd challenge: You can camp or run and gun doesn’t really matter, my choice would be to camp with a motion sensor and kill a couple and then move to another location to do complete the challenge. ============================================================================= III. Perk Tier 2 (Orange)  ============================================================================= Hardened - This is pretty much FMJ or bullet penetration for any gun used Hardened Pro - Extra damage to aircrafts, sentry guns/ SAM turrets and flinch less when being shot Pros: - Usually win when you get shot first since you don't flinch as much - FMJ people you are protected when couching to take them out easier. Cons: - It is not like the stopping power perk but the FMJ attachment in MW2, - Not a good perk to use (1) Get 10 kills through walls (2) Shot 200 bullets into enemy aircrafts (3) Destroy 1 enemy equipment through a wall - 1st challenge: This is challenging since that FMJ is actually a perk and not an attachment, so just find campers and shoot them through the walls to kill them. - 2nd challenge: When a helicopter comes out just shoot it. - 3rd challenge: Have hacker on and find an enemy equipment and shoot it. Scout - Hold breath longer Scout Pro - Switch weapons Pros: - Sniping is easier since you don't need to pro it out like the steady aim pro in MW2 - Switching weapons is fast [almost everything on your character is weapon which means equipment, grenades and secondarys can be swtich or thrown faster] Cons: Can't say anything bad about it (1) Get 50 kills with your secondary weapon (2) Get 50 1 shot kills (3) Get 30 headshots - 1st challenge: Take the Python or the Makarov and just kill people or get a RPG with the scavenger perk and go blowing up people. - 2nd challenge: Buy the WA2000 and try and go for the head otherwise go for the armpits or higher. - 3rd challenge: Straight forward task, get 30 headshots with any weapon with this perk equipped. Steady Aim - Increased accuracy when firing from the hip Steady Aim Pro - Aim down the sight faster after sprinting and recover faster after knifing Pros: - Just like Steady Aim in MW2 - Pro replaces the lightweight perk in MW2 Cons: - (1) Get 2 knife kills in 5 seconds (2) Get 100 kills after sprinting (3) Get 150 hip fire kills with the perk - 1st challenge: Use a ballistic knife to help you complete this task faster. - 2nd challenge: If your sprinting and you see an enemy stop to either knife of shoot them, this challenge is more suited towards the shotgun [preferably] but I guess you can use anything. - 3rd challenge: Shotgun is the best for this either wise use a submachine gun when hip firing. Sleight of Hand - Reload faster Sleight of Hand Pro - Aim down the sight faster [except sniper rifles] (1) Get 150 kills aiming down the sight of your weapon (2) Kill an enemy within 5 seconds of reload your gun 30 times (3) Reload and kill your enemy after you wounded them 10 times Pros: - Reload alot faster - ADS is great Cons: - No more quick scoping with snipers - 1st challenge: Just aim down the sight and kill the enemy, pretty straight forward challenge. - 2nd challenge: After reloading your weapon kill an enemy - 3rd challenge: When having a fire fight hit them a couple of times, prone or hide and reload then kill the enemy. Warlord - Put on 2 attachments on the primary weapon Warlord Pro - Start with extra lethal and tactical grenades [except smokes] Pros: - Just like the Bling perk in MW2 Cons: - Cannot attach the all the things you want [see Warlord Attachment Guide] (1) Get 150 kills with 2 attachments on your gun (2) 10 kills with a frag/semtex grenade (3) Get 1 multi kill with a frag/semtex grenade - 1st challenge: Just equip 2 attachments on your gun and kill. - 2nd challenge: Just kill 10 people with your grenades. - 3rd challenge: This challenge is really hard to complete since you need to kill 2+ enemies with your frag or semtex, spyplane to see where everyone is hiding or might be to this. I’ve have learned that you should play like Objective games to complete this task since people like to run and capture objectives making a lot of people in 1 spot easier to kill. ============================================================================= IV. Perk Tier 3 (Green)  ============================================================================= Tactical Mask - Protect yourself against nova gas Tactical Mask Pro - Reduce the effect of flash and concussion grenades also can see on radar where the enemy is when hit by a tactical grenade Pros: - Yellow arrow appears to show which direction the enemy was hit - Tactical Grenades are less effective on you Cons: - Nothing bas to say about unless otherwise (1) Get 20 kills after you flash banged an enemy (2) Get 20 kills after you used a concussion grenade on an enemy (3) Get 20 kills after you used a nova gas on an enemy - 1st challenge: Kill after you flashed the enemy [NOTE THAT THE ENEMY MUST STILL BE AFFECTED BY THE GRENADE TO COUNT AS A KILL] - 2nd challenge: Get the kill after you stunned the enemy [NOTE THAT THE ENEMY MUST STILL BE AFFECTED BY THE GRENADE TO COUNT AS A KILL] - 3rd challenge: Get the kill after the enemy is affected by nova gas [NOTE THAT THE ENEMY MUST STILL BE AFFECTED BY THE GRENADE TO COUNT AS A KILL] Marathon - Sprint for a longer duration Marathon Pro - Sprint forever Pros: - Sprint forever Cons: - Need to pro it out before you can sprint forever - Not as good as MW2 starting perk (1) Sprint 26 miles (2) Get the first blood medal 10 times (3) In CTF mode, get the CTF medal 15 times with the perk on - 1st challenge: This challenge is simple because you are always sprinting this challenge might take awhile but is a easy one to do. - 2nd challenge: This is hard since you need to draw 1st blood, to achieve this you need to think where the enemy might be moving then you can either grenade ahead of time or shoot them or play objective games to achieve this. - 3rd challenge: To achieve this you must play capture the flag, to do this need to get the enemy flag and return it to your base to get 1 medal and there are 2 ways to do this. (1) You can always follow your flag carrier and let him die so you can get the flag and return to your base to get the medal. (2) Have a tactical insertion and plant it close enough to the enemies flag but not to close so it can be heard or seen [in a secluded spot where people won’t think to look] so you can grab the flag and if you die you’ll spawn close to it. Ninja - Move silently Ninja Pro - Make no sound at all but enemies movements are louder Pros: - Quiet as mouse when not pro - Pro gives the Sit Rep Pro perk from MW2 Cons: - (1) Get 150 kills with a silenced weapon (2) Get the backstabber medal 5 times (3) Plant the bomb 10 times in Demolition, Sabotage or Search and Destroy - 1st challenge: Equip the suppressor on your primary weapon or secondary weapon and kill the enemy - 2nd challenge: To achieve this you need to knife the enemy in the back [your character put actually put the knife in the back and not a swipe to get the medal] - 3rd challenge: Play demolition to achieve this challenge faster. Second Chance - Pull out pistol before dying Second Chance Pro - Survive longer so you can get revived by team Pros: - Can be revived over and over again if someone heals you Cons: - Can't be revived if knifed, grenaded, exploded or shot in the head which cancels the effect of this perk. (1) Get 10 kills in second chance (2) Kill the enemy who downed you 5 times (3) Get 1 headshot in second chance - 1st challenge: Have the python or CZ75 when using this perk since these to pistols are strong but I prefer the python to do this. - 2nd challenge: Kill the enemy who put you in second chance mode. - 3rd challenge: Now this hard since you must aim for the head when your on the ground, to get this you can have either high sensitivity to aim for the head or just lucky, [My suggestion is to this with a friend] Hacker - Detect enemy equipment, explosives and turrets Hacker Pro - Sabotage enemy equipment, turrets, booby trap care packages and invisible to motion sensor Pros: - Like the Sit Rep perk in MW2 but a bit better - Pro is good since you can tamper enemy care packages and are invisible to motion sensors Cons: - Nothing really bad to say about it (1) Destroy 10 enemy equipments (2) Get 25 kills with claymores or C4’s (3) Get 25 kills within the radius of your motion sensor or jammer - 1st challenge: Since you can see enemy equipment just go around looking for them and blowing them up. - 2nd challenge: You can use claymores or C4’s but I prefer claymores since I don’t need to look where the enemy is but I’ll tell you how to do it both ways. Claymores: Always plant the claymore on an angle so people with Lightweight and Marathon Pro can’t get to you, also note that you can only get 1 kill per life with a claymore. C4: Play objective games like Domination, Demolition to complete this, plant your C4 near your objective and when you hear see or hear the enemy taking you objective blow them up to get a kill. [NOTE THAT C4’S ARE NOT AS STRONG AS IN MW2 SO 1 C4 MIGHT NOT BE ENOUGH TO KILL SOMEONE BUT IT USUALLY IS.] - 3rd challenge: Camp in a defendable and not noob tubeable position to this Motion Sensor: [You want to plant the motion sensor in the middle of the room to give you maximum range or put it in a spot when it won’t be destroyed but can give you a lot of range as well, then wait for people to show up and kill them to complete this challenge Jammer: [Play objective games and plant your jammer near the objective so the is covered, then hide and wait for people to come kill them. ============================================================================== V.
