Call Of Duty 5 : World At War
Shades is a Tier 2 perk in Call of Duty: World at War that reduces the effects of signal flares. This is useful in countering enemies who think they have you temporarily blinded, as they generally won't be as cautious when attempting to kill you. This perk is useful for defending in 'Search and Destroy' game mode matches. It is unlocked at level 32. Shades are absent from the Wii version of Call of Duty: World at War.
It cuts the Pink-to-White Hue created whilst within a 5m Proximity of a signal flare, though it is not as effective against flares as Gas Mask is against Tabun Gas and does not allow the player to retain their minimap while viewing the flare.
If the player has Shades equipped, the player model will reflect that, with sunglasses literally on the player model to protect it from the intensity of signal flares.
