How do perks work in multiplayer?

i figured perks would work automatically, but apparently that's not the case? i bought the perk that morphs a doppleganger of you when blended in a group, and also the one that reduces kill streaks by 1. well, when i blend in a crowd the other members stay the same and it still takes five kills to activate my killstreak. is there something i have to do, or what?

Have you assigned them to a Loadout?

Do you use them with RB and LB? You're using Morph aren't you? That's manually triggered

my set up is this:

ABILITIES
1) templar vision
2) disguise

PERKS
1) blender (each time you blend with a crowd, one civilian automatically morphs into your lookalike)
2) kill buffer (decreases your kill streaks by 1 instead of resetting when you die)

KILLSTREAK +250

LOSS STREAK
-tracker (reveals a target in your sight until you perform a kill)

the abilities work fine because i just press a button for them. the perks simply do not work though. i blend into crowds all the time and all the characters stay the same, and it still takes a five kill streak to get my bonus.

Blender only changes someone in the crowd if no AI in the crowd already have the same character model than you. Also you need to make sure you are properly in the group, it needs to show 'webbing' on the floor below you.

Kill Buffer does not do what you've said it does... it does what it says it does. Normally when you die your kill streak is reset, instead with Kill Buffer your kill streak continues but is depleted by 1, that doesn't mean it takes 1 less kill to get a streak. If you had 4 kills and died, with Kill Buffer your kill streak would continue at 3, meaning you would need 2 more kills to get your 5 kill streak.

you're correct. that makes a lot more sense for kill buffer. blender still does not work though. entering groups with no characters similar to me doesn't change any. maybe it only works in certain gametypes, or something. i'm not too bothered by it though as i'm finally done with the multiplayer.
