Martyrdom is a Tier 3 perk in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: World at War. It returns as a Deathstreak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. It is also in Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS). Martyrdom causes the player to drop a live fragmentation grenade upon death.

"Drop a live grenade when killed."
— Perk description

Martyrdom is unlocked at level 17. A Martyrdom grenade's fuse is 2.5 seconds (opposed to five seconds on a non-Martyrdom grenade and three seconds on a grenade picked up with the Toss Back Perk). Because frag grenades in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare have a large kill radius, this perk is very powerful. The most practical use of Martyrdom is in close quarters combat, where the enemy is less likely to be able to escape the blast.

Old School ModeEdit

Martyrdom is one of the six perks available on Old School Mode.

Call of Duty: World at WarEdit

Martyrdom reappears in Call of Duty: World at War as it did in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. There are no significant differences between the perks in each game, as both grenade fuse times are 2.5 seconds. The only differences would be the general grenade-related changes Treyarch made in Call of Duty: World at War, such as grenade indicator opacity, and decreased damage.

Due to these changes, it is much easier to escape from Martyrdom in Call of Duty: World at War than in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, as the player who killed the Martyrdom user will be able to identify the location of the grenade.

Martyrdom returns as a Deathstreak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, unlocked at level 27. It requires four consecutive deaths before it can be used (three if using Hardline Pro), so it is seen far less frequently than it was in previous games. It is also less effective, as the grenade fuse time has been increased to that of an uncooked fragmentation grenade.

The decrease in effectiveness has also been further amplified by the reduction in damage and range to the fragmentation grenades in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS)Edit

Martyrdom is featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS).

Call of Duty: Black OpsEdit

Matryrdom makes a minor appearance in the Campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops. If an enemy is damaged right they pull out a grenade before dying (This is shown in the animation). It also appears in the mission Payback where Kravchenko resorts to pulling out his grenade before dying, in an attempt to kill Woods.

Level 51

 
Martyrdom reappears as a deathstreak in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and is unlocked at level 51. It is identical to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 variant, but is unlocked much later. Due to the decreased blast radius of grenades in Modern Warfare 3, it is notably weaker as well.

Trivia Edit

GeneralEdit

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

  • In the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer beta, the Martyrdom grenade fuse was five seconds; this proved problematic as players were able to easily pick up the Martyrdom grenade and throw it away.
  • As seen in game menu source files, the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare version of Martyrdom was originally a Tier 2 perk.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

  • If the player kills an enemy with this deathstreak, the player will get the title "Martyr" and a Martyrdom emblem.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

  • As in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the "Martyr" title can be obtained by killing an enemy with a grenade dropped from Martyrdom. i.e. a player can pick up a grenade from an enemy with Martyrdom, and then kill another enemy with it.
