Modern Warfare 3 – Team Perks and More!
With no surprise whatsoever, perks are back in Modern Warfare 3 as well as killstreaks, only this time you will apparently have to get kills with out dying to attain them. Not satisfied? Well in Modern Warfare 3 there will be the addition of ‘Team Perks’, for example 4 of them have been confirmed and they are:
- Stopping Power: Increased bullet damage.
- Blast Shield: Unclear
- Health Regen: Regenerate health over time.
- Stun Protection: Prevent stunning from flash grenades.
As for regular perks, here some new ones confirmed:
- Blind Eye: This makes you immune to computer-controlled and player-controlled killstreaks. The pro version makes your launchers lock on faster and gives you extra bullet damage to vehicles.
- Assassin: This makes you immune to UAV, thermal, and heartbeat sensors. The pro version also makes you immune to CUAV, EMP and no longer shows your name in red or the crosshair in red when you’re targeted.
- Point Guard: Every two assists count as a kill towards your killstreak.
- Dead Silence: You make no noise.
- Recon: Gives you a special kind of radar to spot enemies, most likely. We’re not sure on this one.
For new killstreaks we have the following confirmed:
- EMP Grenade: Temporarily takes out all area electronics.
- Littlebird: A tiny remote-controlled helicopter.
- Precision Airstrike: Calls in an airstrike on a targeted area.
- Stealth bomber: Calls in a B2 Spirit to carpet bomb along a line designated by the player.
- Remote Turret: A remote controlled turret.
- Directional UAV: A UAV that can be directed into areas to scan for enemies.
- Remote Mortar: Direct a mortar team using a zoomable camera view of the map to call in strikes.
- Airdrop Trap: A booby-trapped airdrop.
- Ammo Resupply: An ammo reloading airdrop.
- Escort Airdrop: A protected airdrop.
- Specialist Strike Package: This one remains a mystery to us.
