Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare introduces a new Combat Rigs system, which is 6 special characters that feature different abilities for players to use. Combat Rigs offer Payloads and Traits.

Payloads are similar to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Specialist Weapons and abilities, in which the character gets a certain weapon or ability to use for a limited period of time. It’s exactly the same as Black Ops 3 to activate — press L1 + R1 once the meter in the bottom right has filled.

Here’s the six Combat Rigs:

FTL:

IW_MP_desktop_01-FTL

  • Erasers

  • Power-slide

A big feature that separates Combat Rigs from Specialists is that you can actually change your Combat Rig mid-match. So if you want to adjust your style during the match, you can easily do so.
