Rumor: World At War Perks List (Updated)

Update: Vampheric did not do the collection work for his lists, he just copied them from elsewhere without crediting the original creator, so he is no longer credited for it. FullMetal at seems to be the origin of most of the list. The lists in this post have been updated to reflect FullMetal's work, his graphical guide has been added, and his weapon's guide, which is both more complete and better sourced, has been posted.

An industrious GameFaqs user, Vampheric FullMetal has put together a list of perks and weapons expected in Call of Duty: World at War. We've filed this under rumor, since the list isn't completely sourced and we lack links, but most of it reeks of truthiness, so we're passing it on. FullMetal Claims the italicized perks and weapons have been confirmed. You be the judge.

Vehicle related perks

- "Extra armour" [This makes each vehicle stronger ["Juggernaut" perk for vehicles]
- "Lightweight tank/vehicle" [This gives each vehicle the ability to go very fast but on the other hand you'll be more vulnerable. ["Extreme Conditioning" for vehicles]
- "Mechanic" [Repairing vehicles (to a certain extent), thanks GirlsHateMe]
- Chameleon [Adds vegetation foliage to your tank for camouflage concealment]
- Lubricant [Faster tank turrent movement]
- Machine Gunner [Adds a machine gun to any vehicle that can be fitted with one]
- Tank Commander [Allows infantry to be spawned next to you your vehicle so you can provide them cover/a lift]
- Optics [Interior tank view for zoomed and more precise targeting; "Red Orchestra" style]
- High-explosive (HE) Round [Does more damage to infantry and has a higher blast radius, good for taking out groups but is weak against tanks]
- Armour-piercing (AP) [Does more damage to tanks but is weak against infantry]
- Dragon [Adds a flamethrower to your tank but other rounds are disabled]

What are perks? They are player customizations that let you add certain skills to your in-game self, creating a custom class of soldier. Perks were a very popular part of Infinity Ward's hit Call of Duty 4, so Treyarch has wisely chosen to keep them in World at War. In addition to an equally unsourced Weapons list, there's a CoD4 perks trailer FullMetal's visual guide to confirmed weapons is after the break, to help you get an idea of what Treyarch is shooting for.
