Modern Warfare 3 Perk List Revealed

modern warfare 3 beta

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 gets closer by the day, and we’re just a few short weeks away from the main game being released, but there is the early-access beta to look forward to in the meantime. As we head closer to the release of the beta and game, leaks have started appearing that give us an early look at what to expect from Activision’s upcoming first-person shooter.

With Modern Warfare 3, it looks like Activision is taking a more realistic approach this year, and the perks will be tied to clothing items, particularly Gloves, Boots, and Gear. This is an interesting take compared to previous entries in the series and could also allow for more customization options outside of the character’s skin.

Here are all of the perks we know about so far in Modern Warfare 3 and what each one does.


  • Infantry Vest – Increases Tac Sprint duration
  • Engineer Vest – Spot enemy equipment, Field Upgrades, and Killstreaks through walls and faster Field Upgrade recharge. Aiming down sights also highlights them for the team.
