Instead of appearing as bright white silhouettes through a [[Thermal Scope]], Cold-Blooded players will appear as shades of gray similar to the environment, either friends or foes. This may actually cause the player to be at a disadvantage on snow maps, as the gray has more contrast with the environment, whereas the white-hot silhouette of non-Cold-Blooded players is much harder to spot against the white snow (of course, for this reason, most players choose not to use Thermal Scopes on winter maps, so the issue is often resolved). As they are not truly invisible, moving Cold-Blooded players are much easier to spot through Thermal Scopes than stationary ones.

=== Tips ===
+
== Call of Duty: Black Ops III ==
*Cold-Blooded is extremely useful for anti-air classes, where it is usually used in conjunction with [[Scavenger]] and a [[Stinger]]. The only perk that really does compete for the slot would be Danger Close, if a player wishes to use either the AC-130/Predator Missile killstreaks, or a rocket launcher such as the AT4 or RPG, which are somewhat ideal for anti infantry usage, along with claymores or C4.
+
{{Infobox/perk|image = [[File:Cold Blooded Perk Icon BO3.png]]|category = t2|unlocked = Level 26|name = ''Call of Duty: Black Ops III''}}
*With this perk it is not safe to stand next to someone without it during an enemy killstreak. They will be targeted and the player may be killed with them when they are hit. However, in friendly fire games, the player may be safer, as the average player will not attack players without red boxes since they will assume that the player is friendly. Because of this, players trying to shoot down enemy aircraft with Cold Blooded should stand away from team-mates.
+
{{Quote|Not targeted by ground-based AI Scorestreaks. Immune to Thermal Optics.|[[Create-A-Class]] Description.}}
*Some players prefer to use Cold-Blooded on knifing classes instead of [[Lightweight]], as stealth is an important part of survival.
+
Cold Blooded re-appears in ''[[Call of Duty: Black Ops III]],'' preventing players from appearing on the [[Thermal Scope|Thermal Optic]], [[BOA 3]] and player-controlled aircraft. It will also prevent the player from being targeted by [[Sentry Gun]]s, [[Cerberus (scorestreak)]], [[GI Unit]]s, and [[R.A.P.S.]] in Ai-controlled mode.
*Cold-Blooded is useful for Ninja Defusing as well. Since Cold-Blooded hides the player from any form of detection besides physical contact, or through a heartbeat sensor if the player is not using Ninja, even if the enemy has called in a UAV recon, the player will not show up on radar (though the player will show up on the map when firing their weapon unless a [[Silencer]] is used). In addition to being hidden from radar, the Pro version of Cold-Blooded hides the players name and red cross-hair if the enemy is looking at the player, making it easy to hide in shadows around the map.
 
*Destroying air support, disabling sentry guns, and shooting down UAVs will count towards Cold-Blooded Pro.
 
*To be undetectable, use Cold-Blooded, Ninja, a Silencer and any Tier 1 perk.
 
*The pro effect is very beneficial to snipers wearing ghillie suits, as they can blend in very well with the environment.
 
*Cold-Blooded is a bit harder to use on snowy maps, as if a player's adversary has a thermal scope, and the player has the perk active, they will stand out even if they are prone as grey, instead of white, but inexperienced users of the thermal scope may disregard this still. A player who uses said scope may initially disregard the player with the perk, until either the gun's sight slows down significantly over the body, or the other player using the perk opens fire without using a silencer and is caught on the radar.
 
*Cold Blooded is potentially useful for free for all matches, where UAV and AC-130/Predator missile killstreaks seem to be very much useful.

*Looking like a corpse can be useful, as it can be used to protect an objective in Domination, or protect a bomb while being right next to it. Players who have learned to use a throwing knife could use it to silently pick one enemy off. However, keep in mind that if the player does this trick too much, other players may eventually wise up to the trick and check all bodies.

The XP the player gains through destroying the helicopter has been patched, but it can still be used to gain Cold Blooded Pro quickly.

For the camouflage featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, see Cold Blooded Camouflage.

Cold-Blooded is a Tier 2 Perk featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops IICall of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIICall of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and is a Tier 1 Perk in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It prevents the player from being highlighted by thermal scopes, and has several other benefits which vary by game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

Cold-Blooded's primary ability is used for the avoidance of killstreak rewards - it allows the user to be invisible to all forms of air support. The vision for Chopper Gunners, AC-130s and Predator Missiles show players with the Perk active, but does not highlight them with a red outline square. Cold-Blooded users can also be killed by collateral damage from other killstreaks, for instance standing between a user of a different tier 2 Perk while a Sentry Gun is firing upon them.

Instead of appearing as bright white silhouettes through a Thermal Scope, Cold-Blooded players will appear as shades of gray similar to the environment, either friends or foes. This may actually cause the player to be at a disadvantage on snow maps, as the gray has more contrast with the environment, whereas the white-hot silhouette of non-Cold-Blooded players is much harder to spot against the white snow (of course, for this reason, most players choose not to use Thermal Scopes on winter maps, so the issue is often resolved). As they are not truly invisible, moving Cold-Blooded players are much easier to spot through Thermal Scopes than stationary ones. As most Thermal Scope users are more accustomed to bright white silhouettes on the map, it is easy for them to pass right over a Cold-Blooded user.

The Pro version prevents the red name and cross-hairs from appearing on an enemy's screen when they are targeting the user. It is unlocked by destroying 40 enemy killstreak rewards while using this perk. The perk is essential for the "ghosting" tactic, and the Pro version can assist in doing so.

Experienced players use the Pro version in order to play dead, often for "Ninja Defusing", or just to fool enemies who may have hurt them. By going prone, and repeatedly pressing the weapon swap or "cooking" a Stun, Flash, Smoke or Semtex grenade, it will appear as if the player is dead to others.
