|Tier 3 Perk|
|Pro unlocked at||
The Pro version of this perk protects players from enemy Claymores by increasing the time between detection and detonation. This allows the user to slip past enemy claymores with ease, allowing the user to ambush the player who was using the claymores as a form of defense. However, with the radar fading effect of scrambler, and the claymore still giving the distinctive click, the player using Scrambler may find it more of a hindrance than a help. This effect can be useful in Hardcore Mode, as the lack of a HUD mini-map lowers the weakness of the radar-fading. This again, however, can be countered by players who check the overview map relatively often.
The main way to tell the difference between a Counter-UAV and a Scrambler user, other than hearing the announcer alert the team of a Counter-UAV, as Scrambler causes the radar to fade gradually, depending on the distance between players, while a Counter-UAV cuts out the radar completely regardless of location. The two could be utilized together for great-effect. But overall, Scrambler is more of a hindrance than a useful perk when acting alone, as experienced players will be alerted to the player's presence upon seeing their radar turn fuzzy. Scrambler is unlocked at level 17. Scrambler Pro is unlocked by getting 50 close-range kills and the perk challenges are complete after 250 close-range kills.
