Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Best Perks

The best Black Ops 4 Perks definitely depend on play style to a degree. There are a few that stand out above the rest though - great all-rounders that have been shown to offer a noticeable advantage while active. We’ve listed our picks for the best Perks in Black Ops 4 below:

  • Tracker - The Tracker Perk allows you to get the jump on enemy players, and alerts you if anyone is flanking you. It’s incredibly useful.
  • Ghost - Being undetectable while planting bombs is a real plus in some game modes, and UAVs can’t see you if you’re moving.
  • Scavenger - It’s super easy to run out of ammo in Black Ops 4, especially if no-one on your team is throwing out ammo packs at the right times. Being able to scavenge ammo is really useful then, and means you can carry on using your weapon of choice for longer.
