120 Kills while ADS
Stalker gives the user 100% walking speed while aiming down the sights. Light Machine Guns, Sniper Rifles, and Assault Rifles receive the most benefit from this perk. Submachine guns, Handguns, and Machine Pistols receive less benefit as their default movement speed while ADS is higher. This perk is ideal with Overkill so the player can receive the full benefit of Stalker for both weapons. The pro version delays detection-triggered explosives (IMS, Claymores, Bouncing Betties).
Stalker is an excellent perk for an aggressive style of play, allowing the player to remain mobile at all times, and making it possible for assault rifles and even light machine guns to keep up with submachine guns and shotguns even on maps focused on close quarters fighting such as Dome or Seatown. On such maps, Stalker used with aggressive, high-firepower rifles like AK-47 or M4A1 can be extremely effective, allowing the player to effectively trade blows with submachine guns in close quarters, while retaining a large advantage over them in more open areas. Stalker is extremely useful for those who strafe around corners and just all round useful just to walk around with the sight zoomed in and fastly moving.
While Steady Aim can be used for a similar purpose, its benefits are limited to short range; on the other hand, Stalker is a very versatile perk, and remains useful on more open maps - remaining mobile always makes the player much harder to hit (and constant, irregular strafing can be especially frustrating for snipers). Furthermore, the Pro version of Stalker is very useful and can often save the life of the player or even his teammates (as long as the player using Stalker Pro walks in front), functioning like a more aggressive version of Sitrep.
Stalker appears in Survival Mode and in Special Ops Chaos.
Special Ops ChaosEdit
Stalker is granted at a combo multiplier of 40.
- In the Call of Duty Elite behind the scenes: Improve video, which can be found here, the perk icon seems to originally have been an image of a stereotypical stalker. It is likely this was the old perk icon, as they designed more like the Modern Warfare 2 perk icons rather than those in Modern Warfare 3.
- Before being patched, Stalker Pro could delay an Airdrop Trap.
