Just a few days after hinting at the possible return of the popular pick-10 create-a-class system, Treyarch has posted another cryptic tweet about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Today’s tweet showcases four logos that appear to be perks, as well as two wildcards—which are create-a-class features that allow players to be more creative with their loadouts.

In response to a fan who said that she heard perks and scorestreaks wouldn’t be in Black Ops 4, Treyarch tweeted, “Don’t worry, we know some people… which has its perks.”

This is great news for fans of traditional Call of Duty titles, especially after rumors were circulating that Black Ops 4’s multiplayer might be similar to Overwatch gameplay.

Although the images in Treyarch’s tweet aren’t confirmed to be perks, it certainly seems like that’s the case. Fans are even speculating that these logos could be for popular perks from previous titles, such as Dexterity, Sleight of Hand, Dead Silence, and Marathon or Lightweight.

The most recent Call of Duty title, WWII, replaced the traditional perk system with Basic Trainings—and players can only select one Basic Training per class. With the potential return of the pick-10 system, however, Black Ops 4 could allow players to once again pick three or more perks in multiplayer.

Call of Duty fans can expect to learn more about Black Ops 4 during the game’s official community reveal event on May 17. Black Ops 4 will be released on Oct. 12.
