The NW perk interface

This page covers perks available in Nuclear Winter. Unlike the base game, all perks come in a single, top level grade. Packs received on Overseer level up also provide a single perk card, as opposed to five in the regular game.

Players are limited to a total of seven perk cards that have to be selected while in the lobby. Changing them on the fly during a match is impossible. There are also no SPECIAL requirements.
