The gaming community eagerly awaits the release of Call of Duty 2023 which is supposedly titled Modern Warfare 3 and developed by Sledgehammer Games. Numerous leaks have surfaced, providing insights into exciting new features that players can expect. Among these rumors, one particularly intriguing aspect is the introduction of a Gear-based Perk system, potentially transforming the way players customize their loadouts.

Perks in Modern Warfare 3 may be available through 'Gear', according to the reliable leaker BobNetworkUK via Twitter. Each piece of Gear will add distinct features and functionality to the player's experience. Read on for full details regarding this leaked gear based perk system and how it might function in Modern Warfare 3.

How will this new leaked Gear Based Perk System Work?

According to leaks, the new Gear system seems to revamp or even replace the traditional Perks system. Instead of individual Perks, players will now find Perks tied to specific pieces of equipment: Vest, Boots, and Gloves. Each category will have various Perks attached to enhance different aspects of gameplay.

The leaked information suggests that the Gear system will offer players up to four pieces of Gear, with each piece linked to a specific Perk. This setup provides more flexibility and potential combinations compared to the classic three-perk selection from previous titles.

Let's take a closer look at the speculated effects of some of the leaked Vests and Gloves in the Modern Warfare 3 Gear system:

Leaked Vest Gear System:

  1. Gunner Vest: Allows players to start with two primary weapons, but sacrifices Lethal and Tactical equipment slots.

  2. Overkill Vest: Potentially grants benefits similar to Double Time, enhancing tactical sprint duration and crouch movement speed.

  3. Grenadier Vest: This may offer advantages akin to Bomb Squad, reducing damage taken from non-killstreak explosives.

  4. Infantry Vest: Could provide perks reminiscent of Quick Fix, triggering health regeneration upon player eliminations and increasing regeneration speed while capturing objectives.

  5. Scout Vest: Speculated to function like Spotter, enabling players to detect enemy equipment, Field Upgrades, and Killstreaks through walls while aiming down sights.

  6. Tactical Vest: Likely grants Extra Tactical, allowing players to spawn with additional Tactical equipment.

Leaked Gloves Gear System:

  1. Tactical Gloves: Possibly boosts reload, equipment use, and weapon swapping speed, similar to the Fast Hands Perk.

  2. Scavenger Gloves: These could provide benefits comparable to Scavenger, replenishing ammo from fallen enemies.

  3. Marksman Gloves: May offer advantages akin to Cold-Blooded, making players undetectable by AI targeting systems, thermal optics, and certain enemy devices.

  4. Assault Gloves: Potentially reduces the effects of enemy Flash, Stun, EMP, Gas Grenades, and Shock Sticks, or grants immunity to Snapshot Grenades.

  5. Specialist Gloves: Could function like Ghost, rendering players undetectable by UAVs, Portable Radars, and Heartbeat Sensors, or like High Alert, providing vision pulses when spotted by an enemy outside of view.

As with any leaks, nothing has been officially confirmed by the developers yet so take this information with a grain of salt. The game's details are subject to change during development, but these leaked hints have certainly sparked excitement within the Call of Duty community.
