Skills are modifiers that appear in the multiplayer aspects of every game since Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus. (Certain skills are also in effect in the Campaign modes of certain games - such as Modern Combat 5: Blackout). Skills provide various enhancements, such as improving the effectiveness of the player's weapons and armor, increasing reload speed or health regeneration rate, as well as more unique abilities.

Modern Combat 5: Blackout Edit
In Modern Combat 5: Blackout, each soldier class has a skill tree with its own unique skills. Skills are unlocked with Skill Points (SP) which can be earned by leveling up, playing missions or events, as well as purchased via certain bundles. Some skills take affect in the Campaign, but others are only in effect in multiplayer mode.
Every class has 8 skill categories. The 3rd skill for each class is a Special Ability (such as the Assault Class's Berzerk ability) which can be manually activated in-game (with the exception of the Recon class's Reveal skill, which is a passive ability unless the player is equipped with the Seer Armor Core - which changes it to an improved active ability).
To activate the Special Ability, the player must press the "Cycle Grenade / Ability" button to swap between grenades and Special Abilities; and then activate the ability by pressing the same button used for grenade-throwing.
Special abilities are not active in the Campaign; in most missions however, the player instead has the ability to manually deploy recon drones (of which the player has an unlimited supply) which function the same as those of the recon drone deployed via Military Support in multiplayer games.
Likewise, the 8th skill in each class is a Synergy Skill, which provides a special benefit to all teammates within the vicinity of the player - for example, the Assault class' Synergy Assault skill provides nearby teammates a boost in damage. (The Kommander is the only class whose 8th skill does not have "Synergy" in its name).
Below the player's radar are 5 slots which show which Synergy Skill benefits they are currently receiving from nearby teammates:
