Players who choose for Prestige Mode are sent back to rank one with all unlocks and challenges reset. In return the players are awarded with a new rank logo."

I actually do not like this, now theres no reason not to Prestige, the whole point was starting from scratch without the best weapons and unlocks.

Now all will be is another number. Rubbish. Not that I was going to buy it anyway....

From what I understand, you don't get to keep unlocks, just weapon levels. So you still have to get the gun again but once you do, all your progress on that particular weapon is saved.

It's because of the new rank system, they're trying to make it so your rank actually matters and so that you play people around your skill level. Think if you prestiged and your rank went down you would be an "experienced" player vs a bunch of low rank noobs..

SwiftShot2277d ago

@Sono421 CoD has a horrible system for people with skills vs noobs. I get put with people who have a ridiculous k/d or spm, nothing makes sense anymore. Let alone the whole I prestiged this 'X' amount of times.

Sono4212277d ago

@SwiftShot you know they are completely revamping the rank system right? People compare it to Halo's rank system.

TopDudeMan2278d ago (Edited 2278d ago )

They totally misinterpreted what he said. what he means is weapon level won't reset. Rank does reset. He was saying that when you unlock that weapon the next time around, it'll be the same rank as it was before you prestiged.

Which is good cause the weapon rank and unlocks were annoying to reunlock multiple times.

All I know is, I am going to buy this game for the zombies and I'll play the multiplayer. But I don't think I'll ever come close to prestiging.

SAE2278d ago

it's easy if you enjoy the multiplayer , i did a prestiging in one day when there was a time that i actually enjoy playing call of duty , it's easy if you kill 30 and more in each match...

now it's hard to play it , it doesn't feel like it's a call of duty game after mw2 , it's onlt getting worst , i would love to play a remake of cod4 or like an hd version of cod4/5....

IW series is getting worse
Treyarchs series is getting better.

SAE2277d ago (Edited 2277d ago )

i hope you are right , i will buy black ops 2, maybe maybeeeeee they fix the lag problem even though bo1 started it , that's what takes all the fun for me , i can go blind for the other things...

the graphics in mw1 makes me a lot excited to play then black ops but i know that Treyarchs trying to do a good thing...

i love the wager mode , it's a great mode

SwiftShot2277d ago

@BlitzAK Quick question for ya....After which game?

WeskerChildReborned2278d ago

I'll probably play both. I love multiplayer and Zombies.

FarCryLover1822278d ago

If the rumors are true of zombies being added to multiplayer type versus matches, then I might play a ton of multiplayer.

Straightupbeastly2278d ago

Oh great so now players will have the target finding scopes right away

question to the xboxers, "is COD bigger than Halo?"
