The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launch date is just a few weeks away, but there are still details about the game that are being kept underwraps. This includes the full list of perks that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players will be able to customize their loadouts with, though a new leak may have revealed them all.
Out of all the leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer perks, there are two that may be of particular interest to fans. The first is called Pointman, and what it does is turns killstreaks into scorestreaks. This means that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players who want to be rewarded for playing the objective instead of just getting kills will still be able to do so in the new game, as long as they have that perk equipped.
The other leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perk that may interest fans is Akimbo. Akimbo is a perk that lets players dual-wield handguns, and if this leaked information is correct, it appears that ability is coming back in the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
This leak comes from VG Sources, which datamined the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC files to discover this information. Considering this, it seems like a safe bet that these leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perks are legitimate. However, there is still a chance that not all of them will make it into the final game, or others still will be reserved for post-launch updates.
After all, there have been other Call of Duty: Modern Warfare datamines that have contained content that seemingly won't be in the game at launch. The leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer maps, for example, feature fan favorites like Rust, Terminal, and Shipment. However, other reports indicate that none of those maps will be in the game at launch, perhaps suggesting they will be added post-launch as DLC or may have been scrapped entirely.
Another leak claimed to reveal the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare game modes, but the list of game modes was way too long for the game to realistically have all of them at launch. Fans should keep that in mind before getting too excited about any datamine leaks.
In the meantime, here are all the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare multiplayer perks found in the game files:
Presence of Mind
Sleight of Hand
It's possible the official Call of Duty: Modern Warfare perks list will be revealed ahead of launch, maybe even as early as the Spec Ops reveal on October 8, but otherwise fans will learn more on October 25.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on October 25 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
