For months after launch, Perks in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 were been broken. Even after securing your loadout, certain Perks would fail to activate, resulting in an entirely useless mechanic overall. Likewise, you weren’t actually able to customize which Perks were associated with a loadout, and instead, had to utilize Perk Packages. These had preset Perks tied to each, offering very little in the way of customization.
Thankfully, Activision finally issued a patch to fix Perks and Perk Packages, allowing players to make better use of these bonus abilities.
Now that Perks work properly in Warzone 2.0, you should be aware of the best options to maximize your performance and hopefully get more wins. These are the best Perks in Warzone 2.0.
Warzone 2.0 Perk list
First, let’s go over all the Warzone 2.0 Perks. Keep in mind, you can now customize which Perks you’d like to activate from each category. With the exception of the Base Perks, you cannot use more than one Perk from a particular category at any given time.
- Overkill: Carry two primary weapons
- Double Time: Double the duration of Tactical Sprint. Increase crouch movement speed by 30%.
- Battle Hardened: Reduce the effect of enemy Flash, Stun, EMP, Gas Grenades, and Shock Sticks. Immune to Snapshot Grenades.
- Scavenger: Resupply ammo and throwing knives from dead players.
- Bomb Squad: Take reduced damage from non-Killstreak explosives. Reset fuse timers when picking up live grenades.
- Tracker: Enemies leave behind a footprint trail, and enemy death markers are visible. Kill markers are hidden from enemy team.
- Strong Arm: Throw equipment farther, and see a preview of the trajectory.
- Resupply: Spawn with an additional Lethal. Equipment recharges over 25 seconds.
- Spotter: Spot enemy equipment, Field Upgrades, and Killstreaks through walls. Aiming down sights highlights them for the team. Hack enemy Claymores, Proximity Mines, C4, and Trophy Systems.

The best Perks
Ah, yes, Overkill: the quintessential Call of Duty Perk. Considering battle royale mode throws you into close, mid, and long-range encounters, having weapons for all types of situations will serve you well. That’s why Overkill is so effective, allowing you to come equipped with two primaries.
Double Time is useful because you don’t need to do much to make use of its effects. Since it doubles your tac sprint duration and increases your crouch speed by 70%, it comes in handy nearly every time you move around the map. Being able to tac sprint for longer can truly get you out of a bind, so Double Time is a top choice from the Base Perk category.
Sometimes, coming to a fight with a piece of equipment can be a difference-maker. With Resupply, you recharge your equipment over the course of 30 seconds, meaning you can continuously replenish your Stuns, Claymores, or other useful items if your timing is right.
Much like Double Time, Fast Hands triggers without you having to do much. This Perk allows you to reload, use equipment, and weapon swap faster, which is almost always useful. Being able to reload faster, specifically, is oftentimes enough to reset a gunfight.
While UAVs aren’t as prominent in Warzone 2.0 as they were in the original game, they still come into play frequently. Because of that, Ghost is still great in this game, as it disallows you from showing up on enemy UAVs, Portable Radars, and Heartbeat Sensors. A lot of times, even if you’re a skilled player, it’s easy for someone else to get the drop on you if they know your location, so Ghost will keep you safe.
If you’re an expert player who can react very quickly, High Alert might be for you. This Perk causes your screen to pulse in the direction of any enemy who looks at you, which basically can prevent you from being taken out from behind. This Perk is best for players who like to move around a lot, as it can keep you on your toes.
