Ghosts-Blog_Perks-1200x630.jpg

Call of Duty®: Ghosts introduces a Perk system with an incredible level of customization. While we went into some detail during the Multiplayer Reveal, let’s take a closer look so you’re ready to go at launch this November:

 

Equipping Perks

 

 

Each of the 35 available Perks is weighted with a point value of 1 through 5. Your loadouts naturally have a pool of 8 points to spend on Perks, up to a total of 12 depending on your loadout choices.

 

 

In addition to the initial 8 points, a single Perk point is tied to the Primary Weapon slot, Secondary Weapon slot, Lethal and Tactical. Take away any one of these items for an additional Perk point, allowing a maximum of 12 points to spend. If you’re a Perk fanatic, you’re welcome to forego all weapons and equipment, starting each spawn with only a knife in hand and 12 points worth of Perks. It’s your choice.

 

 

Perk Unlock System

 

 

Perks are unlocked in one of two ways. Each Perk is marked with a level and a Squad Point cost. Once you reach the listed level, the Perk is automatically unlocked for use. If you’d rather unlock a Perk early, you can also choose to spend the listed amount of Squad Points for immediate access. Can’t wait to unlock Blast Shield for your Domination matches? Pay the listed Squad Points ahead of time and it’s yours to use.

 

 

Perk Categories

 

 

Each Perk belongs to one of seven different Perk Categories. Mix and match as you see fit to create a near unlimited number of loadout combinations, from quick and stealthy to tough and armed to the teeth.

 

 

Speed

Outrun and outmaneuver enemy players. Speed Perks are all about getting the lead and staying ahead. Examples include:

 

 

Sleight of Hand: Faster reloading.

Stalker: Move faster while aiming.

 

 

Handling

Dexterity and control drives the Handling Perks, improving actions and accuracy. Examples include:

 

 

On the Go: Reload while sprinting.

Steady Aim: Increased hip fire accuracy.

 

 

Stealth

Stealth Perks aid you in staying out of sight, maintaining a low profile and engaging on your terms. Examples include:

 

 

Takedown: Kill enemies without revealing their death locations.

Incog: Resistant to targeting systems including: Recon, Thermal Scope, Tracker Sight and Motion Sensor. No name or red crosshairs when targeted.

 

 

Awareness

Keep in tune with your surroundings. Awareness Perks help you survey the environment and detect enemy players. Examples include:

 

 

SitRep: Detect enemy explosives and tactical equipment.

Wiretap: Utilize all active enemy and friendly SAT COMs on the field.

 

 

Resistance

A hardened endurance reduces the effects of fatigue. Resistance Perks keep you going through tough engagements. Examples include:

 

 

Focus: Reduced weapon sway when aiming down sights and reduced flinch when hit.

Blast Shield: Increased resistance to explosive damage.

 

 

Equipment

Tacticians swear by their gear, and Equipment Perks ensure you have the best tools on hand. Examples include:

 

 

Extra Tactical: Additional Tactical equipment.

Extra Attachment: Extra attachment for your weapons.

 

 

Elite

Elite Perks offer special abilities that affect your loadouts in a variety of ways. Examples include:

 

 

Gambler: Spawn with a random Perk.

Ping: Activate a sonar ping upon killing an enemy, revealing nearby hostiles.

 

 

With so many options available, you’re bound to see an incredible amount of variety in your multiplayer matches. As always, keep experimenting and fine tuning with all your loadouts in the endless journey to create the perfect Squad.

Next-Gen Upgrade FAQ

Posted by GhostsNews Oct 17, 2013

Call of Duty®: Ghosts is committed to making this console transition as seamless and easy as possible for our fans. We know there are still a lot of questions about the transition, so we’ve compiled answers to some of the most frequently asked questions below. We will continue to update you as additional information becomes available, so be sure to check back for more. If you have questions, please leave us a comment.

 

General

 

What happens to my stats when I upgrade to a next-generation console?

When you upgrade to a next-generation console within the same console family (e.g., from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, or from PS3™ to PS4™), your Multiplayer stats and progress will move with you; so there is no need to re-start leveling up your squad from the beginning.

 

 

All you need is your Call of Duty account. Your Call of Duty account will also grant access to the Call of Duty App. If you don’t have a Call of Duty account, you will be able to register in-game in Call of Duty: Ghosts, or you can register for free online right now to be ready.

After I upgrade to a new console, what happens to my stats if I play on a friend’s console or on an older platform?

Link your Call of Duty account to your Xbox Live gamertag or PSN ID and any time you play, while signed in with that Xbox Live gamertag or PSN ID, your progress will be retained.  Whether you play on your console, or sign in on your friend’s console, within the same console family, your progress will be retained. Your progress will also follow your linked Xbox Live gamertag or PSN ID when you and your friends upgrade to next-gen console (all within the same console family only). There is no cost for for this benefit.

 

Xbox

 

How does the Xbox next-generation upgrade program work?

Via the Xbox Live Market place, players can purchase an Xbox 360 digital version of Call of Duty: Ghosts and when ready to upgrade to Xbox One, players can purchase a digital Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts for a suggested retail price of just $10 until March 31, 2014.

 

 

When I buy the Season Pass on Xbox 360, will I have access to the digital content on Xbox One when I upgrade?

When you buy the Call of Duty: Ghosts Xbox 360 Season Pass in the Xbox Live Marketplace, you will automatically receive access to download the equivalent Xbox One Season Pass on Xbox One, FREE of charge. You simply need to buy and activate your Xbox Season Pass no later than May 31, 2014 and your content will then be available for download and play on your Xbox One (using the same Xbox Live account).

 

 

When I upgrade from digital download for Xbox 360 to digital download for Xbox One, will my digital Xbox 360 game license be deactivated?

No, Xbox 360 game license will not be deactivated. Both game licenses will be retained.

 

 

PlayStation

 

How does Sony’s PlayStation next-gen upgrade program work?

For a limited time, when gamers buy the disc or digital version of Call of Duty: Ghosts for PlayStation®3 (including Hardened and Prestige Editions), they can download a PlayStation®4 digital copy of the same game from the PlayStation® Store for a $9.99.  This offer expires March 31, 2014.  See http://us.playstation.com/digitalupgrade for more information.

When I upgrade from digital download for PS3 to digital download for PS4, will my digital PS3 game license be deactivated?

No, PS3 game license will not be deactivated. Both game licenses will be retained.

 

Outnumbered? No problem. With the help of the 9-Bang Tactical equipment in Call of Duty®: Ghosts, you can even the odds with controllable, blinding power.

 

 

The 9-Bang uses a tiered power system to determine its impact. The longer your character holds the equipment before throwing, the more blinding flashes it produces on detonation. A fully cooked 9-Bang additionally releases an EMP effect that stuns nearby electronics, temporarily shutting down enemy defenses.

 

 

“The 9-Bang’s power system challenges players to plan ahead and think more tactically when engaging enemies,” says Multiplayer Lead Tom Wells. “Caught unaware? You can still toss it right out like a traditional flash grenade in a hurry. Prep a fully charged 9-Bang, however, and you’ll disrupt defenses in a big way.”

 

 

It’s important to consider how much power you need in each situation compared to how much time you have for priming. The longer the charge, the more effective the blast.

 

 

If you’re assaulting an objective point, the fully primed EMP effect really comes in handy. In addition to blinding defenders in the vicinity, you’ll temporarily shut down nearby Sentry Guns, I.M.S. devices, and a variety of other electronic dangers. With planning and preparation, you can greatly improve the likelihood of capturing the objective.

 

 

Of course, there are several counters to consider when using the 9-Bang:

 

 

Tac Resist

Resistance to flash, stun and EMP effects.

 

 

The Tac Resist perk greatly increases resistance to the 9-Bang’s effects. This obviously benefits enemy targets, but it’s also worth considering if you plan on equipping the 9-Bang yourself.

 

 

Equipping Tac Mask reduces the penalty of deploying the 9-Bang in close proximity, allowing you to play more aggressively without as much worry about potential backfire.

 

 

Trophy System

Active defense turret that destroys two enemy projectiles.

 

 

The Trophy System Tactical equipment counters up to two projectiles, including the 9-Bang, fully charged or not. Be prepared to defend yourself if your equipment gets vaporized.

 

 

Night Owl

A companion drone that detects enemies based on proximity and protects you from explosives.

 

 

Found in the Support Strike Package, the Night Owl protects its user against multiple explosives, including the 9-Bang. At a cost of 10 points, they’re not something you’ll run into left and right, but they’re a real pain when encountered. Use a non-explosive weapon to take them out on sight.

 

 

With practice, you’ll start to get a better feel for power vs. timing. Plan ahead for maximum impact and reap the rewards of more points and match victories.

A:  If you moved your Call of Duty® Elite Clan over to a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, we are setting up your Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan and pre-populating your Clan Members for use in the game and Call of Duty® app.  You will be able to manage your Clan within Call of Duty®: Ghosts with the launch of the Call of Duty® app on November 5th, 2013.  If you have not moved your Call of Duty® Elite Clan over, you will be able to set up a Clan with the launch of the Call of Duty® app on November 5th, 2013.

 

 

Q: Can I still log in to the Call of Duty® website and access my Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan from now until launch?

 

 

A:  No.  All of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Management Clan functionality is now locked until the launch of the Call of Duty® app on November 5th, 2013.  You will be able to access and manage your Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan through the Call of Duty® app.

 

 

Q: Why is there a new Clan system for Call of Duty®: Ghosts?

 

 

A: Clans in Call of Duty®: Ghosts will include deeper in-game integration and more features, from in-game Clan Management and Clan–specific playlists to the all-new Call of Duty® Clan Wars game mode available in the new Call of Duty® app. This year also introduces cross-platform Clans, allowing players to create and/or join a single Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan across the following platforms: including Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4 and Windows PC.

 

 

Q: Won’t my current Call of Duty® Elite Clan work with Call of Duty®: Ghosts?

 

 

A: No, Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clans are built on a new system, so Call of Duty® Elite Clan Leaders/Members alike must start or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan.

 

 

Q: What are the benefits of being in a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: By being in a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, players can look forward to:

• Participating in Call of Duty® Clan Wars – the new Call of Duty® app game mode that ties directly into Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer, where you and your friends will compete against other Clans to earn bonus multiplayer XP and exclusive in-game items.

• Playing in Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan vs Clan playlists.

• An entirely new Clan leveling system that offers Clan Members more opportunities to earn Clan XP.

• Clan management functionality, both in-game and in the new Call of Duty® app.

• Notifying Clan Members that you’re heading into a match with the touch of a button via the Call of Duty® app’s Clan Chat and Rally-Up features.

 

 

Q: When Call of Duty®: Ghosts launches, will the process of creating, managing, and joining a Clan be the same as it was during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Registration?

 

 

A: No.  On November 5th, 2013, you will be able to create or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan by downloading the new Call of Duty® app on your supported mobile device.  Through the Call of Duty® app, you will have full access to a robust Clan Management system, among many other features designed to work hand-in-hand with the Call of Duty®: Ghosts game.  We will have more details to share on this process at launch.

 

 

Q: Where do I go to create or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: On November 5th, 2013, you can create or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, by downloading the new Call of Duty® app on your supported mobile device. Once you have downloaded the Call of Duty® app, log in using either your Call of Duty® account or your existing Call of Duty® Elite account credentials. From there, you’ll be prompted to set up your new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, unless you are already a part of a Clan. Additionally, new players can sign-up for a free Call of Duty® account through the Call of Duty® app.

 

 

Q: Can I still reserve a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name before the game launches?

 

 

A: No, the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration ended on October 25th, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. (PDT).  You will be able to create or join a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan on November 5th, 2013.

 

 

Q: What happens if I’m a current Call of Duty® Elite Clan Leader, and I didn’t reserve our Clan Name during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration?

 

 

A: If a Call of Duty® Elite Clan Leader did not reserve their current Call of Duty® Elite Clan as their Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name by the end of the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration period, and no other Clan Leader from a different platform has claimed it, then their Call of Duty® Elite Clan Name will become available for anyone to claim as their Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name on a first-come, first-serve basis once the Call of Duty® app launches on November 5th, 2013.

 

 

Q: What happens to existing Call of Duty® Elite Clan Names that did not get reserved during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration period?

 

 

A: If a Call of Duty® Elite Clan Name was not reserved by their current Call of Duty® Elite Clan Leader as their Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name by the end of the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration period, and no other Clan Leader from a different platform has claimed it, then their Call of Duty® Elite Clan Name will become available for anyone to claim as their Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name on a first-come, first-serve basis once the Call of Duty® app launches on November 5th, 2013.

 

 

Q: If I am a new player and don’t have a Call of Duty® account or never signed-up for Call of Duty® Elite, can I still create or join a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: Yes, on November 5th, 2013, you will be able to create or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan through the Call of Duty® app. Once you have the Call of Duty® app downloaded, you can sign-up for a free Call of Duty® account. Once you’ve signed-up, you can log in with your new Call of Duty® account credentials and be able to create or join a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan.

 

 

Q: I reserved a new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration – can I change it?

 

 

A: If you reserved your new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration, you must keep it until “Open Registration” begins on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 – timed to Call of Duty®: Ghosts launch on current-gen consoles and Windows PC. After Open Registration/November 5th, 2013 you will be able to change your Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name.

 

 

Q: I’m a Clan Leader and I reserved a Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name that I no longer want. Can I leave my Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan, or can I give it to another Clan Member?

 

 

A: Once you’ve reserved your new Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan Name during the Call of Duty®: Ghosts Early Clan Registration, you must keep it until “Open Registration” begins on Tuesday, November 5th, 2013 – timed to Call of Duty®: Ghosts launch on current-gen consoles and Windows PC.

A: The Call of Duty® app is completely free, and you can access it through your free Call of Duty® account or you can also use your existing Call of Duty® Elite account credentials.

A: The Call of Duty® app is currently planned to be available for a number of iOS mobile and tablet devices, Android mobile devices (phones only, not Android tablets), and Windows 8 mobile and tablet devices. A list of specific supported iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices will be made available at launch.

 

 

Q: I’m going to play Call of Duty®: Ghosts on Wii U™/PC. Will the Call of Duty® app support these platforms?

 

 

A: The new Call of Duty® app is currently planned to support Call of Duty®: Ghosts players on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and Windows PC.

 

 

Q: Is the Call of Duty® app required to play Call of Duty®: Ghosts or any other Call of Duty® game?

 

 

A: No, the Call of Duty® app is not required to play Call of Duty®: Ghosts. However, the Call of Duty® app will add another dimension to your Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer experience by providing personalized, context-specific information and features during and beyond your play session, as well as the all-new Call of Duty® Clan Wars game mode.

CLANS AND CALL OF DUTY® CLAN WARS-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS

 

 

Q: How do I level-up my Call of Duty®: Ghosts Clan?

 

 

A: In Call of Duty®: Ghosts, all multiplayer matches played with at least one other Clan Member will earn Clan XP and unlock Clan rewards.

 

 

Q: I do not want to use the Call of Duty® app, but I’m worried that players who do will have an unfair advantage in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer with the in-game Call of Duty® Clan Wars rewards.

 

 

A: No, the Call of Duty® app will not provide any unfair gameplay advantage in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.

 

 

Q: What is Call of Duty® Clan Wars?

 

 

A: Call of Duty® Clan Wars is a brand new game mode in the Call of Duty® app that ties directly to Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.  It offers a deeper Clans experience by enlisting players into a larger conflict where any Clan Member, regardless of skill level, can contribute to the Call of Duty® Clan War simply by participating, and rewards them with cool items, both in the app and in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer.

 

 

Q: How does Call of Duty® Clan Wars work?

 

 

A: In Call of Duty® Clan Wars, your Clan is pitted against seven other evenly matched Clans to battle for possession of key locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map over a period of time.

 

 

The locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map are tied to specific multiplayer modes in Call of Duty®: Ghosts.  For example, when you’re playing in a clan war, the Aqueduct location on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map is tied to the Team Deathmatch (TDM) mode in Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer, and your Clan will battle against seven other Clans to secure and hold the Aqueduct location while the other Clans try and take it away from you. Each time your Clan wins a Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer match in TDM, your Clan gets a “Capture Point” for the Aqueduct location. There will be multiple locations on the Call of Duty® app’s clan wars map, tied to other multiplayer game modes in Call of Duty®: Ghosts, and your Clan gets more Capture Points for securing either the Aqueduct or other locations and holding them down over time. The Clan with the most Capture Points at the end of the period wins the clan war.

 

 

Clans that participate in Call of Duty® Clan Wars have the opportunity earn cool rewards both in the Call of Duty® app and in-game as well. Rewards are distributed based on how your Clan ranked in the overall clan war. Of the seven Clans that participate in a clan war, the top three ranking Clans will earn rewards, with the winning Clan receiving the most.

 

 

Clan Members can review their standings at any point during a clan war using the Call of Duty® app, and strategize their next multiplayer play session – should your Clan hold down the location you’ve already captured, or move on to try and capture other locations for even more points.

 

 

CALL OF DUTY® ELITE-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS

A: No, Call of Duty®: Ghosts will be supported within the new Call of Duty® app.

 

 

Q: With the introduction of the new Call of Duty® app for Call of Duty®: Ghosts, is Call of Duty® Elite going away?

 

 

A: Yes, Call of Duty® Elite will eventually phase out over time, with initial, minor changes planned to take place beginning in November, and then more changes in early 2014. The Call of Duty® app was designed to work with the next generation of Call of Duty® games, like Call of Duty®: Ghosts.

Q: What changes will be made to Call of Duty® Elite in November, and early next year?

Ghosts Blog_Blitz-665x375 (1).jpg

 

One of a variety of new game modes for Call of Duty®: Ghosts, Blitz requires players to use speed and stealth to step foot into the enemy goal for points. Let’s take a look at the basic setup and some strategies to keep in mind before jumping into the new mode this November.

 

Blitz Setup

 

Score Limit: 16

Rounds: 2

 

A goal sits on either side of the map, each belonging to one team. To score points, you or one of your teammates must enter the other team’s goal. Entering a goal awards a single point and instantly teleports the goal-scorer to a different section of the map. A 10-second cooldown is applied to the goal after scoring a point. Nobody can enter the goal during this time.

 

The round ends when 10 minutes are up or when one side scores 8 points. The teams switch sides and the second round begins.

 

Blitz Strategy

 

Offense

 

Faster is Better

Speed is your friend. Perks like Marathon (unlimited sprint) and Agility (increased movement speed) leave the enemy players in the dust when rushing their goal. If you find yourself face to face with a defender, Ready Up (weapon is ready faster after sprinting) and Quickdraw (faster aiming) speed up your reaction time to quickly drop out of sprint and defend yourself before scoring the point. If you’re really cutting it close, rush the goal and drop to a knee slide to zip in and avoid incoming shots.

 

Disrupt Line of Sight

Closing in on the enemy goal, but don’t trust that hidden corner coming up? The Smoke Tactical grenade might just be what you’re looking for. Toss it out and rush in unhindered. Just try not to deploy it too early, as nearby enemies will likely see the smoke and follow up with explosives. You don’t want to be there when that happens.

 

Bring Your Friends

As with all team-based modes, coordination wins games. While the 10-second cooldown prevents groups from entering the goal simultaneously, it’s still advantageous to stick together. Designate one player to rush in for the point while the others take up posts in the perimeter, fighting off incoming enemies until the goal resets.

 

 

Defense

 

Surprise, Surprise

Once an enemy player gets close to your team’s goal, they’re more likely to throw awareness out the window and rush right for the point. They might make a quick check of the immediate surroundings, but they’re likely more concerned with reaching the goal. Use this to your advantage and set up in vantage points that aren’t easily spotted at first glance.

 

Minefield

The I.E.D. Lethal equipment and the I.M.S. Assault pointstreak are both highly effective proximity explosives. Set these near key chokepoints leading to your team’s goal and make enemy rushers think twice before blindly racing toward your goal.

 

Score and Defend

After scoring a point and teleporting away, take some time to defend your own goal. Chances are, you already have other teammates closing in on the enemy goal. If everyone’s attacking, your own will be wide open for the taking.

 

These are just a few tactics to keep in mind when playing Blitz. Above all, act quickly and keep a cool head. With the speed and intensity of Blitz matches, every second matters. Make it count.
