The first level increase for COD4 beta participants is coming 09/07/07 at 10am PST / 1pm EST. This increase is will unlock the use of the sub machine gun Mini-Uzi, side arm M1911 Colt .45, clan tags, and the perk Bomb Squad. All currently banked points will not carry over. Enjoy!
"Friday morning at 10 am PDT (1 pm EST) we're going to be increasing the Rank level cap to Level 16. This is going to allow you to rank up and unlock more weapons, more perks, and more features; including Clan Tags (lv. 12). This is the first of several level increases we're going to do throughout the beta, so keep playing, and I'll keep you informed of incoming updates. Thanks to everyone currently playing for the tremendous amount of feedback we've been receiving; Keep sending it, and we'll see you online!"
"The experience points will not carry over, if they did, as soon as the level cap was raised everyone would be right back at Max (lvl. 16) and where's the fun in that?
So you'll have to work your way from Level 11 to 16."
