Perks are player-chosen modifiers that affect their skills and stats during the game. Each contestant can choose 3 different perks to start each match with. Some perks are better for the early minutes of the match, while others are geared towards the end of the match. A lot of perks offer better synergies with your airdrop as well. Therefore, it is important to be aware of what each perk can bring to your personal play style, as perks can't be changed during a match in any way.
