In the awesome online world that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 there are a multitude of features that are both tried and true, and have a special place in my heart. But out of all of these features, the Sleight of Hand (SoH) Perk reigns supreme. Of all of the features in this game nothing has proven to be more reliable and I find that I can always fall back on this gem of a perk.
First off, the Sleight of Hand Perk. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this Perk’s ability, Sleight of Hand reduces the time spent reloading weapons to half the normal time. This may not seem like much at first, but in an actual battle (especially close quarters) SoH can often mean the difference between life and death. In addition to this, SoH Pro reduces the time needed to aim down the sight of your weapon. It is definitely safe to say that SoH is one of the most underrated perks in the entire game, but that’s exactly how I like it.
When combined with other perks and attachments, SoH tends to take on a whole new persona. A perfect example of this is the SoH Pro and Lightweight Pro duo. With this, the user can aim almost instantly, sometimes before the opponent even has time to react, because of this the Soh/Lightweight combo is a viable replacement for the Stopping Power Perk. Lastly, having a silenced weapon combined with Sleight of Hand, makes flanking the enemy a Run and Gun players dream come true. If executed properly, one can eliminate an entire enemy team without them ever being aware of the killers presence.
