Death Perception, fully known as Death Perception Soda, is a Perk-a-Cola featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Zombies. It provides the player with enhanced awareness benefits to locate nearby enemies easier.

Overview[]

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4[]

"See nearby enemies through walls. Receive screen indicators when enemies approach the Player from off screen."
— Description

Death Perception, when purchased, gives the player an orange outline of nearby enemies through walls, similar to a thermal optic. Any nearby enemies off screen will be highlighted by small white arrows on the HUD denoting their location relative to the player.

When Death Perception is selected as the "Modifier" perk and the player has all of their other perks, it applies bonus damage to special enemy weak points.

In Create-A-Class, Death Perception is unlocked by default, and can be applied to the player's Perk loadout to appear in any map. It can also be obtained randomly through the use of Secret Sauce if available and through a myriad of other Perk-based rewards and items within the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War[]

"Obscured enemies are keylined."
— Description

Death Perception was released with the Season Five content update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on August 13th, 2021. While similar to its Black Ops 4 iteration, Death Perception now allows players to increase survivability, awareness, armor penetration, and Salvage drop rates through upgrades. It is available in Der Wunderfizz in all maps and in its own perk machine on Forsaken.

Death Perception's effects remain similar to previous games, though with the addition of also highlighting chests and other resources that can be looted as well.

There are several jagged edges sticking out from each side of the machine, and much of the machine itself seems to be covered in blood. At the top of the machine, there is a red glowing eye with a skull replacing the pupil. Below the eye is the logo for Death Perception, with nine soda cans being visible from the front.
