Call of Duty: WWII is now live, and players are already trying to figure out which Basic Training abilities are the best.
Sledgehammer Games decided to replace the traditional perk system in previous Call of Duty titles with Basic Training abilities in WWII. Each player can select one Basic Training to give their in-game character an ability, such as reloading faster or moving more quietly.
There were 14 Basic Training abilities in the WWII private beta—but seven have been added to the game at launch, and even some of the preexisting abilities have changed.
Here are all 26 Basic Training abilities in Call of Duty: WWII.
“Enemy Scorestreaks and enemies you damage appear on mini-map.”
“Additional launcher ammunition, and resupply launchers from enemies killed without explosives.” (Updated on April 10.)
