The best perk packs for Warzone 2.0

No adjustment for now.

Warzone 2.0 reworks several key mechanics in Call of Duty’s hit battle royale. It introduces a new circle mechanic, a 2v2 gulag that lets you cooperate with your opponents, and even a new armor system.

Perks also see some big changes. You can no longer customize and individually select your own value pack.

Instead, the 17 in-game perks have been sorted into various combinations of eight perk packs. You need to pick one that best suits your playstyle, even if it’s not necessarily the exact choice you want.

Here’s a look at the best perk packs for Warzone 2.0.

Ghost remains one of the best perks in the game, especially in Al Mazrah. It hides you from UAVs, handheld radars, and heartbeat sensors, making it easier to avoid detection and hit opponents.

Hiding your location is everything in a battle royale game, especially if you prefer a slower-paced approach to the game.

Spotters and trackers are also useful perks, allowing you to scout buildings before entering them and spy on retreating enemies.

Finally, Double Time could help you escape quickly or engage faster. It could also prove crucial when flanking opponents to help you get into position faster.

Weapon Specialist is another strong choice. It’s the only value pack with overkill that increases the firepower you bring to the battlefield.

That means you can wield both a sniper rifle and an SMG at close range, allowing you to handle a variety of engagements.

While Strong Arm isn’t the most useful perk, the pack makes up for it with Spotter and Survivor. Survivor in particular can prove valuable in helping you out of a tight spot and making it easier for your squad to save you after you’re down.

Vanguard has several useful perks for maneuvering out of a tight situation. In addition to the extra agility you get from Double Time, it also comes equipped with Bomb Squad, which can save you from a pesky Claymore or other explosives.

Resupply lets you secure buildings with additional deadly equipment that charges over time, while High Alert alerts you if anyone is watching.

However, you still need to be on guard. If enemies are equipped with the Cold Blood perk, they will not trigger a High Alert alert.
