Gun Perks are a feature in Call of Duty Online and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. In Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Gun Perks are available through Prototype Weapons, they add on different abilities to that weapon along with stat differences. They appear to be a evolution of the Perk system featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts as well at the Weapon Proficiency system from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Some gun perks change use when the respective variants are used in Zombies to fit the gameplay, such as the gun perk Gambler, which awards the player a free candy perk once they have killed 75 zombies without going down.
