Modern Warfare Perks, Tactical Equipment and Lethal Equipment

Modern Warfare has returned to the more traditional create a class system we were used to seeing pre Black Ops 2. The pick 10 system has been completely scrapped. 

Today we look at all the perks, lethal equipment, and tactical equipment available to players in Modern Warfare create a class. 

Like the old days, players choose a primary weapon, a secondary weapon, a perk from each of the three tiers and finally lethal and tactical equipment. 

An all-new feature has also been added this year. Players can now add up to 5 attachments to their primary weapon. 

Adding and removing attachments will change the weapons stats slightly. Players can add or remove attachments based on what they feel comfortable with.
