    I.                             Version History                         (VERH)
    Version 1.0: Faq is published to Gamefaqs website. (April 25, 2011)
    II.                             Introduction                          (INTRO)
    Welcome to my first published Faq on Gamefaqs, so bear with me here as there
    are probably a lot of grammatical and spelling errors that I missed. :P
    Anyways this is a guide about the perks in this game and how to pro them
    as fast as possible. A few things to note before you check out the perks.
    First of all, all perks but tactical mask, hardened, and lightweight can only
    be unlocked by buying them for 2000 cod points. To unlock the pro version of
    the perk, you must first complete the three challenges for the perk, then you
    have to spend an additional 3000 cod points to pro the perk. You can change
    perks in their pro version by accessing the perk menu. Also note that I may
    encourage what appears to be "camping" or "boosting" per say, but rest assured
    I am only trying to give the best advice as some of these challenges are very
    tough to do and sometimes, having a friend help you get the challenge complete
    is the best way to complete the challenge and to get the pro version
    of the perk.
    III.                                Blue Perks                         (BPKS)
    Ghost- You will not show up on radar while a Spy Plane is active
    Ghost Pro- You will no longer be targeted by Attack Helicopters and you are
    invisible to Chopper Gunners, Valkyrie Rockets, and Gunships. You are, however,
    still revealed by a Blackbird and Attack Dogs still target you. Also your name
    will not appear nor will red crosshairs appear, but you will still be detected
    by the Aim Assist.  Finally you are not detected by enemy sentry guns
    Challenge One: Kill 20 Enemies while an Enemy Spy Plane or Blackbird is Active
    This challenge is very easy as Spy Planes are very common in most game types
    and it makes it easy to sneak up on enemies...not so much for the Blackbird
    however. Any gametype but Search and Destroy will yield the best result in
    completing this challenge.
    Challenge Two: Destroy 30 enemy aircraft with a NON-KILLSTREAK LAUCNHER.
    I put the last part in caps because the challenge counts if you are using a
    Law or Strela Launcher, which makes this challenge difficult. You have two
    choices; One is to wait until your Lv30 to use the Strela since it has two
    rockets to fire or you can use the Law and just keep killing yourself so then
    you can destroy as many enemy aircraft as possible. I highly recommend Spy
    and Counter-Spy Planes as they only require one rocket to destroy. This
    requires patience as you can be killed taking our air support, especially
    helicopters. Be aware one rocket will destroy any type of aircraft, although
    all helicopters come equipped with one set of flares, which deflects the
    missile away from the helicopter.
    Challenge Three: Destroy An Enemy Sentry Gun.
    This is easier than it sounds. All you have to do is knife an enemy sentry gun.
    The only problem is, unless the Sentry Gun is used to complete a Contract, many
    players rarely use it. One neat trick is to first unlock the Sentry Gun
    killstreak, then throw the Sentry Gun marker in the enemy spawn so that an
    enemy captures the sentry gun. Then just follow them until they set up and
    then knife it to complete the challenge.  Having hacker in conjunction with
    this perk makes finding sentry guns very easy as well if you cannot find them.
    Overall this perk is extremely useful and I highly recommend you have this in
    one of your classes. Spy Planes are used so often, that using this perk is an
    effective way to sneak up on enemies who rely on the Spy Plane to locate you
    and is great at destroying Air Support. Not only that, but it basically makes
    most aircraft and killsteaks useless, especially the Pro Version. This is a
    perk I highly recommend you get at the beginning of the game or your prestige.
    There are a few drawbacks. The most fatal one being that you are very
    vulnerable to most aircraft and what not before you get the pro version. Also
    you are still visible to Blackbirds. Other than that, this is a great perk to
    use and highly recommend you have ghost in one of your classes.
    Flak Jacket
    Flak Jacket: Reduces explosive damage
    Flak Jacket Pro: Reduces fire damage
    Challenge One: Survive 10 explosions while using Flak Jacket
    A quick way to complete this challenge is to play an objective any objective
    based game as the enemy tends to throw many explosives at you if you are at
    an objective.
    Challenge Two: Plant or Defuse 10 bombs in Sabotage, Search and Destroy, and
    This is not a very long challenge to complete, but this one can be quite
    difficult as the bomb likes to be camped a lot if your planting or defusing.
    I highly recommend doing this in either Sabotage or Demolition as you will most
    likely die before you plant or defuse the bomb in Search and Destroy. Really
    just play the objective in Sabotage or Demolition. They both have very long
    game times, especially Demolition.
    Challenge Three: Throw Back 5 Frag Grenades
    This is probably the hardest challenge. First off, many people will use Semtex
    over Frags in many game types. Second, the usual player is smart enough to cook
    the grenade before throwing it, meaning it will probably explode before you can
    grab it. However you do not have to throw it back actually. All you have to do
    is grab the grenade. Either do an objective based game or get a friend to help
    accomplish this challenge. A good tip is to play on Firing Range and camp in
    the tower. Many players tend to throw stun or flashbangs followed by either a
    Semtex or a frag grenade, which you can easily throw back since it wonít roll
    all over the place.
    By god with this you are the Juggernaut. This perk will allow you to survive
    almost every explosion, even the dreaded RC-XD, assuming itís not on top of
    you. Actually unless itís like a direct impact explosion, you will survive
    nearly any explosion, including Claymores, Mortar Strikes, Rolling Thunder,
    Rocket Launchers, Grenade Launchers, I can keep going on, but you get the
    point. The Pro version further improves this perk as it makes Flamethrowers
    and Napalm Strikes completely useless as you will receive almost no damage
    whatsoever. This is a great perk in objective based game as you can take a
    lot of punishment from explosions before you go down. Only downside is that
    you are visible to Spy Planes. Seriously this is an awesome perk in objective
    based games.
    Scavenger-You can pick up blue ammo bags to resupply ammo for your primary
    weapon, pistols, specials, and lethal grenades.
    Scavenger Pro- Your primary and secondary weapons has max ammo and you can
    now resupply tactical grenades, excluding Willy Pete.
    Challenge One: Pick up 150 Blue Ammo Bags
    When you kill an enemy while using scavenger, they drop a blue bag, which
    resupplies your ammo. This is not hard, but it is very time consuming and can
    take a while to resupply 150 times. Any gametype but Search and Destroy will
    work just fine. Best one is probably Headquarters since that can last up to
    15 minutes.
    Challenge Two: Get 5 Lethal Grenade Kills with a Resupplied Grenade
    Fairly easy challenge to complete. A good tip is to throw your lethal grenade
    when you spawn and just go over an ammo bag. If you want a lot of lethal
    grenade kills, Domination is your best bet since many people will go for the
    Challenge Three: Get a 5 killstreak Five Times
    This one can be either easy or hard, depending on your gameplay and what not.
    The only advice I can give is be smart, and be wary of your surroundings. If
    you really wanted to, just grab a motion sensor and camp if you need the
    challenge that badly.
    This perk is ok. I often donít buy this perk as, while itís good on paper,
    when used in action, itís not executed well. The biggest problem I have is that
    the bags drop very close to the enemies and sometimes that can get you killed.
    Not only that, but they donít appear half the time. You may be better off
    picking up enemy weapons, but the extra ammo really helps some SMGs who have
    very little ammo. Also note that you cannot resupply any Launcher Ammo
    (including the Strela), equipment, grenade launchers, or flamethrower ammo.
    Lightweight- Your weight is reduced and you run faster.
    Lightweight Pro- You receive no fall damage.
    Challenge One:  Escape Death after being shot 5 times
    A rather interesting challenge. I guess whenever you get shot, run away? This
    is a potentially hard challenge as running away from fire will most likely get
    you killed as the bullets tend go through objects or somehow swerve around
    corners and kill you. You will most likely get this while playing randomly.
    If you really want it, have a friend shoot you and then run away.
    Challenge Two: Get 15 Melee Kills
    This is another potentially hard challenge. Not only do you have to be close
    to the enemy, but the melee kills are rather sporadic and you will often either
    miss your target, or commando them from afar. I donít know itís very weird,
    but no matter. Just go around and knife people the whole time I suppose.
    For better melee kills, I suggest using the ballistic knife as that not only
    has increased melee range, but you can knife very quickly in rapid succession
    if there are more than two enemies.
    Challenge Three: Get 10 Offensive Medals
    This is an easy one. Play any objective based type game and kill an enemy
    thatís near their objective, like a bomb site, or their own flag in Domination.
    This is probably the least useful of the blue perks. This goes great with
    Marathon as you can run very quickly and is very good for rushing. Other than
    that, the increased speed wonít help you much if you are not rushing, but the
    immunity to fall damage can prove very useful if falling off of a high place,
    but there arenít many of those in this game. However I recommend using other
    blue perks like Flak Jacket or Ghost.
    Hardline: 1 less kill is needed to get a killstreak
    Hardline Pro: You can re-roll any friendly care package to receive a different
    Challenge One: Share 10 care packages
    This is very easy challenge. Put on SAM turret, Care Package, and Sentry Gun
    as they all count as a care package being taken. The SAM Turret alone is a 3
    killstreak with Hardline, which means it can be easy to get a lot of them and
    most of the time; your allies will take them. However watch out for enemy
    players as they can potentially steal your care package. :[
    Challenge two: Get 7 killstreaks in one game using Hardline.
    Now this may seem like a daunting task, but is actually easy. Just play a long
    game, like Domination, Headquarters, etc. and then choose the 3, 4, and 5
    killstreak which will make them 2, 3, and 4. This makes is very easy to get a
    lot of killstreaks in one game.
    Challenge Three: Get a 7 Kills without dying
    This is probably the hardest challenge. Basically kill 7 people without
    getting killed. The only advice I can offer is to use a Spy Plane to help
    locate enemies, counter-spy plane so then enemies cannot use the radar to
    spot you and for your reward, you can put on a Blackbird for getting a 7
    killstreak. Really this challenge depends on your ability while playing
    the game.
    This perk is pretty good. To be honest this perk works great with low
    killstreak rewards like Spy planes as youíre bound to get a lot of them.
    However as you move up to higher killstreaks like Chopper Gunners and Dogs,
    the effectiveness of this perk decreases dramatically, although that one kill
    can mean the difference to obtain that killstreak. A note for Hardline Pro;
    any of your allies with Hardline Pro can potentially change your care package.
    You can also do the same, just as so long as no one is taking your care
    package or their own.
    IV.                             Orange Perks                           (OPKS)
    Hardened: Increased Bullet Penetration Damage
    Hardened Pro: Less Flinching when being shot at
    Challenge One: Kill 10 people by shooting through objects such as walls
    This is can be challenging depending on the situation. A good way is to plant
    a motion sensor near where enemies are or use an active Spy Plane and just
    shoot through walls. Really itís a guess and check kind of thing when it comes
    to this challenge.
    Challenge Two: Shoot 200 Bullets into enemy aircraft
    This is best done with a Light Machine Gun and firing on a helicopter of some
    sorts as they can take a lot of bullets before they go down, unless you can
    snipe those Spy Planes down. ;3
    Challenge Three: Destroy 1 Enemy Equipment by shooting throw the wall
    This may seem challenging, but just put on Hacker and this becomes the easiest
    2000 Xp youíll ever get. Seriously with hacker, this is probably the easiest
    challenge of all the perks. Interesting to note if you happen to destroy a
    RC-XD through the wall, it also counts towards the challenge. Weird...
    This is probably the easiest perk to Pro since its challenges arenít as
    demanding as others. This however makes it one of the most useless orange
    perk. To begin, most weapons in this game have good bullet penetration already
    and not only that, but there are more useful orange perks than this. The Pro
    version however does really help as it makes it much easier to kill enemies
    shooting at you.
    Scout: Doubles the hold breath time while using a sniper rifle.
    Scout Pro: Doubles the amount of time between switching weapons, equipment,
    grenades, and activating killstreaks.
    Challenge One:  Get 50 kills with a secondary weapon
    Now this is a fun one. There are multiple approaches to this. Either use a
    high powered pistol, like the python or CZ-75 and just go around killing
    people with it, use RPGís to take out groups of enemies, or run around and
    knife people with the ballistic knife. Either way this is a tough challenge
    to do.
    Challenge Two: Get 50 One Shot, One Kill Medal
    This can only be done using a sniper rifle. The best ones to use are either
    the L96A1 or the PSG1 as they are one shot, one kills around the chest area
    and have higher damage per bullet than the Dragunov or the Wa2000. The best
    map is probably Array as there are many open spaces to snipe people. Again
    this will be another long challenge.
    Challenge Three: Get 30 Headshots
    While you can use a sniper rifle to get this, itís probably better to use a Sub
    Machine Gun or Assault Rifles as it is easy to get headshots using them.
    Best used on a sniper class as the hold breath time is actually fairly useful
    as some of the snipers have a lot of idle sway. Itís a shame that the pro
    version is wasted on this perk because the challenges for this are probably
    the most time consuming  and the pro version really isnít worth the effort
    anyways, especially if your prestiging. I would pass on this perk unless
    youíre using a sniper class.
    Sleight of Hand
    Sleight of Hand: Reduces the reload time by half
    Sleight of Hand Pro: Faster Aiming Down the Sights. (Excluding Sniper Rifles)
    Challenge One: Get 150 Kills Aiming Down the Sight
    Very easy, just a lot of kills is all. I assume your aiming down the sight
    anyways, unless youíre getting steady aim pro.
    Challenge Two: Kill an enemy within 5 seconds of reloading 30 times
    Now this can be rather annoying because you are vulnerable when reloading,
    even with the decreased reload time. All I can suggest is that you reload
    as often as you possibly can. This can be hard as the window for this is
    rather small and can get you killed a couple of times.
    Challenge Three: Reload and Finish off the enemy you wounded 10 times
    Another annoying challenge once again. One way to do this is to abuse the
    Second Chance People. Just get them into Second Chance, reload, and them shoot
    them again. As simple as that. Other than that, run away for a little bit, than
    just finish off the enemy you shot. Doesnít really get any simpler than that.
    This is an extremely useful perk. Not only is your reload time reduced by
    half, but the increased ADS makes you very deadly when picking off enemies.
    This is also a great perk for any classes where weapons have long reload times,
    such as LMGs or Shotguns. This is probably one of the best orange perks and I
    suggest you use this often as that quick reload can save you sometimes. The
    only downside I can see is that you canít aim faster any more with snipers,
    but I assume itís for the best, I suppose.
    Steady Aim
    Steady Aim- Reduces the hip fire crosshair, which makes weapons more accurate
    when hip firing. It also makes Shotgun spray more directed when hip firing.
    Steady Aim Pro- Reduces the amount of time when aiming after sprinting and
    reduces the knife recovery time.
    Challenge One: Melee two enemies consecutively within 5 seconds
    For this challenge, I highly recommend you use a ballistic knife if you are
    trying to complete this challenge as it can melee very quickly and has better
    range than the default melee.
    Challenge Two: Get 100 kills after sprinting
    Ok this can be somewhat difficult, depending on your play style. Basically,
    when you see an enemy just sprint, then kill the enemy. Although if you have
    this on, you should get this challenge through progression as you will
    probably do a lot of sprinting anyways.
    Challenge Three: Get 150 kills by hip firing
    This may seem hard at first, but there are a few ways to get this quickly. One
    good way is to use Shotguns. If you are using this perk, the spray of the
    shotgun is more focused, which makes it much more deadly. Another way is to
    use dual wield weapons. I would recommend SMGs however, especially the Skorpion
    since that can kill very quickly, just make sure you have scavenger as you will
    run out of ammo rather quickly. Also firing the ballistic knife and killing
    someone with it also counts towards the challenge.
    This perk can be useful, depending on how you use it. I highly recommend using
    it on SMGs and Shotguns as it makes them more deadly when hip firing, since
    SMGs already have a small hip fire reticule. The pro version is very useful
    as the knife recovery can be very long sometimes and can get you potentially
    killed. I usually hold off on this perk as Sleight of Hand or Warlord are
    generally better choices than this.
    Warlord- You can add one extra attachment
    There are some exceptions to this rule however:
    =>You cannot add an extra attachment if you are using a Flamethrower,
    Masterkey, or Grenade Launcher
    =>You cannot have both extended mags and dual mag attachments
    =>You cannot have rapid fire and extended mags or dual mag
    =>You cannot add any extra attachments to dual wield weapons
    Warlord Pro- You get one extra tactical and lethal grenade upon spawning,
    excluding Willy petes.
    Challenge One- Get 150 kills using two attachments on a weapon
    This is fairly easy, just a lot of killsÖagain. There are many weapon
    combinations for this. I would recommend dual mag with suppressor as you not
    only have quick reload time and more ammo, but you also do not show up on the
    radar when firing, which can make you rather deadly although there are other
    attachment combinations which may work just as well or even better.
    Challenge Two: Get 10 kills with a frag grenade or a Semtex
    Very easy challenge. For the best results, play objective based games or use
    the radar to pinpoint where the enemy is and throw your grenade. Scavenger can
    also help you get this challenge as you can get a constant supply of grenades
    and you can get more kills. It can also help you work towards scavenger pro
    as well.
    Challenge Three: Get a multi-kill with a Semtex or frag
    Ok calm down. Contrary to what the description says, you only need to kill 2
    or more people with a single grenade. This can be annoying as you will not
    often find players grouped together long enough to kill with a grenade. I
    would try and get this in an objective based game, most notably Domination as
    many people will crowd the flag to capture it.
    I find this perk to be rather useful. Two attachments are what can make a
    weapon very deadly. You can probably replace sleight of hand with this as most
    weapons have the dual mag attachment, which reduces the reload time. The pro
    version is meh. Extra grenades are always nice, but scavenger is better as you
    get a constant supply of grenades, assuming you get the blue ammo bags. The
    only downside is that some of the restrictions really hamper on some of the
    versatility of some weapons, but other than that, this a rather
    solid perk to use.
    V.                               Green Perks                           (GPKS)
    Tactical Mask
    Tactical Mask- You are no longer effected by Nova Gas
    Tactical Mask Pro- The effects of concussion and flash grenades are reduced
    and a arrow will appear under your reticule, which reveals where enemy is
    located if effected by your concussion or flash grenade
    Challenge One: Kill 20 enemies blinded by a Flashbang
    Challenge Two: Kill 20 enemies who are stunned by a Concussion Grenade
    I decided to do both of these challenges at the same time since they are very
    similar to each other. Basically when you come to a room where there are no
    allies, just pop a concussion or Flashbang and throw it. A hitmarker will
    appear if an enemy is effected by the effects of the stun or flash grenade.
    The tough part is that the effects can wear off rather quickly, depending on
    how close the enemy was to the tactical grenade. I highly recommend you do
    this in Free-For-All as in team modes, your ally might kill the affected
    enemy before you kill him, which can prolong the challenge.  Using scavenger
    pro and warlord pro can also help as you can get a constant supply of
    tactical grenades.
    Challenge Three: Kill 20 enemies effected by Nova Gas
    Ok this is harder than the other two challenges for the sole fact that if
    you are fighting newly prestige players or newer players they will most likely
     have this perk on, which means they will not be affected by the nova gas as
    they will have tactical mask on. Furthermore, if the enemy manages to escape
    the nova gas cloud, the effects will wear off very quickly and can make this
    challenge hard. Again I recommend using Warlord Pro and Scavenger Pro to get
    a constant supply of Nova Gas.
    I personally have never used this perk often as tactical mask itself is not
    useful as many people tend to not use nova gas. The pro version however is
    awesome at killing campers, as it tells you exactly where the enemy is and
    not only that, but the pro version reduces the effects of concussion and flash
    bangs by a lot. Again the only downside as the perk itself can be very useless
    until it becomes tactical mask pro, and then it becomes an anti-camper perk.
    Ninja- Reduces the noise you make while walking or sprinting
    Ninja Pro- Increases the noise enemy make while walking and completely makes
    you silent when walking, changing equipment, reloading, cooking grenades, and
    Challenge One: Get 150 kills while using the suppressor attachment
    Once again this is an easy challenge to do, just a lot of people to
    kill...again. I would recommend using a suppressor on Assault Rifles as they
    have long range and are powerful to use. Although using it on SMGs or the
    Spas-12 work very well also.
    Challenge Two: Get 5 Backstabber Medals
    Ok this can be rather difficult as getting one is rather weird. First off,
    you have to knife the person in the back. I would suggest finding someone who
    is camping or has their back turned. Using the ballistic knife is also a good
    option for better melee.
    Challenge Three: Plant the Bomb 10 times in Search and Destroy, Sabotage,
    or Demolition
    This challenge can either be easy or very frustrating, especially if the
    whole team is camping on the bomb site or if one of your teammates plants the
    bomb first. I recommend doing this in either Demolition or Sabotage. Basically
    just rush the bomb at the beginning of the round and if the enemy defuses,
    then try to plant the bomb again! If you are going to do this, I would
    recommend using a tactical insertion and have flak jacket on.
    This perk is great to prevent people from sound whoring you while they are
    using their Headset. The pro version further improves on this and makes you
    completely silent and with ghost on, you will only be detected by a motion
    sensor. This is a great perk to sneak up on enemies and with the pro version,
    you can easily hear nearby enemies walking or reloading. There are a couple
    of flaws with this perk. First off, you can still hear your own allies walking
    if they are using a perk other than ninja. Another flaw is that sometimes
    while youíre walking, even with ninja pro, your footsteps can still be heard,
    for whatever reason. Itís not loud, but you can still be heard, especially
    with people with Ninja Pro.
    Second Chance
    Second Chance- If enough damage is dealt, the player will fall and will
    remain alive for up to 10 seconds while being able to shoot. They can only
    use pistols and if you have no pistols equipped, you will have the M1911.
    Second Chance Pro- You will survive for up to 30 seconds and you can be
    revived by other teammates.
    Challenge One: Get 10 kills while in Second Chance
    This can be rather difficult as you only have 1 Hp. :S Really as soon as you
    go into Second Chance, just press the fire button rapidly and hope you kill
    the player. Using a Python or CZ-75 is highly recommended as they can kill
    easily. Also if you killed the player with your primary as you fall into
    second chance, it will count towards the challenge.
    Challenge Two: While in Second Chance, kill the player who downed you 5 times.
    This is just like the last challenge, except you have to kill the person who
    put you into Second Chance. This is rather easy as the player who downed you
    is usually nearby, unless you were shot by a sniper rifle.
    Challenge Three: Get a Headshot kill in Second Chance
    This is can a difficult one as well. You will have to be rather lucky as
    trying to aim for the head will get you killed before you can even fire your
    pistol. You can use a friend to easily obtain this challenge however.  Having
    a very high sensitivity really helps here as you can quickly aim for the head
    and hope you can get the headshot. Really it all comes down to luck.
    I hate, hate, hate this perk. Now that I got that out of the way, this perk is
    really good at making players very mad and frustrated. Itís also a good way to
    get revenge kills and can net you that killstreak you were trying to get.
    Really this perk is probably the most useless perk and the pro version doesnít
    really make it any better. Ya, you can get revived in pro version, but itís
    also an easy to get your ally killed as well and usually youíll be killed
    quickly before you get the chance to be revived. Furthermore you only have
    1 Hp, which means anything that does damage will kill you instantly, even
    being flashed will kill you. Not only that, but Second Chance is completely
    ignored if hit by an explosion, headshot, tomahawk, and ballistic knife.
    I would say pass on this perk.
    Marathon-Increased Sprinting
    Marathon Pro- Infinite Sprinting
    Challenge One: Sprint 26 miles
    Ok this is probably the most time consuming challenge of all the perks.
    26 miles is a lot. A good way to get this would just be run around in circles
    or just sprint as often as you possibly can. Really this is more of a
    progression type of challenge as running around in circles will get you killed
    a few times.  Itís easy to do, but itís going to be a while before you get
    the challenge.
    Challenge Two: Get 10 First Blood Medals
    This can also be rather difficult, depending on your game type. I highly
    recommend doing gametypes with multiple rounds, most notably Search and
    Destroy as you have up to seven tries to get a first blood medal. In Search
    and Destroy, try to rush areas where players will normally go through.
    Challenge Three: Capture 15 Flags in Capture the Flag
    Well this can either be easy, or be hard. You are forced to play CTF. The
    objective is to get the enemy flag and then take the flag back to your flag,
    where you will receive the capture flag medal. A few tips while trying to do
    this. Either wait for a Spy Plane to be up or Blackbird to reveal the enemy
    positions as many enemies tend to camp the flag. A Tactical Insertion is
    highly recommended so then you can get back to the flag quickly. I would
    recommend being in a clan so then you can coordinate your clan mates so then
    you can get the flag. A word of caution; if the enemy has your flag, then you
    cannot gain any points for it. Just camp for a little while until your flag is
    dropped before capturing the enemy flag. Another thing you could do, although
    kinda of a jerk move, is to play Hardcore CTF and kill your teammate who is
    bringing back the flag. I don't recommend this as you can only do this once
    or twice before your kicked and you will make a lot of new enemies doing this.
    The bright side is that you can easily kill an enemy in one hit with almost
    any weapon.
    Before you get it pro, itís rather useless as the increased sprint is
    negligible at best and you wonít be getting far into the map before you
    have to rest before sprinting again. However once you get the Pro version of
    marathon, then it becomes a very deadly perk as you can run around infinitely
    and this can be even more deadly with lightweight on. Youíre going to be
    running around very quickly and makes it very easy to rush the enemy.  Itís
    also very good at evading claymores since youíll be moving so fast. The
    only flaw is that the challenges are one of the most demanding and itís going
    to be some time before you can put marathon to full use. Itís still a great
    perk to use, but youíll need a lot of patience.
    Hacker- All enemy equipment and turrets will show up as a blinking red
    Hacker Pro- You can hack enemy equipment to not only disable it, but it also
    becomes your equipment. You can also hack Sentry Guns and SAM turrets. You
    can booby trap enemy care packages, where if you manage to capture the care
    package, you change the contents of it and if an enemy captures the booby
    trapped care package, it will explode. Finally you are invisible to
    motion sensors.
    Challenge One: Destroy 10 enemy equipments
    This is rather easy as equipment is very abundant in all gametypes. Turrets
    and even RC-XDs also count towards the challenge.
    Challenge Two: kill 25 enemies with C4 or Claymores
    Well you have two options, obviously. However I would use the C4 as buying
    the Claymore is not only 5000 Cod points, as opposed to the 2000 Cod points
    for C4, but also you only get one Claymore whereas you get 2 C4 charges.
    Really C4 is most effective on Domination, where you can just lay a C4 on your
    flag and if it gets captured, then set off the charge. You can easily get a
    lot of kills if you know how to use C4, but claymores are safer as it protects
    you and is a guaranteed a kill to anyone not using Flak Jacket.
    Challenge Three: Kill 25 enemies who are in the radius of your Motion
    Sensor or Jammer
    Again you have two options. Both are good to use with the difference being
    price and effect. The Jammer is worth 2000 Cod points and has a very large
    radius, which makes it very easy to get multiple enemies in the radius of it.
    However itís very easy to get destroyed as the effects are felt far away from
    it. The Motion Sensor, while 5000 Cod points, is very useful as it detects
    nearby enemies without hacker pro and makes it very easy to rack up a lot of
    kills. Itís really up to you.
    I absolutely love this perk. Equipment is used very often in this game,
    especially claymores and motion sensors which can easily get you killed.
    With this, you render most enemy equipment useless and hacker pro further
    improves on this effect as you are now invisible to the motion sensor and
    you can actually take over enemy equipment and turrets. With Ghost Pro and
    Hacker Pro, with a suppressor attachment, you are completely invisible on
    the radar and can only be detected by noise or sight. The fatal flaw with
    this perk is that to get the Pro version of this perk, youíre going to
    spending a lot of your funds towards the challenges. The least amount of
    points needed to get the pro version is about 7000 points. It is very worth
    it however and I recommend using this on most of your classes.
