Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout Perks/Consumables System Revealed

As a part of Gameinformer's October cover story, Activision and Treyarch have revealed how perks work in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode.

In the midst of the first trailer for Blackout and the announcement of a stream tomorrow detailing the mode, one piece of news might have gone under the radar. Earlier today, the Battle Royale’s perks were officially revealed, which was another topic that fans have been clamoring for information about ever since its announcement.

The perk system, which was revealed as a part of Gameinformer’s October cover story, is different than those found in previous game’s, or even this game’s, multiplayer. They act more as consumables in the fact that they have limited uses and only last for a certain amount of time.

While the entire list of perks was not completely revealed, eight of them were. You can check out the full list below:
