This is a forum post, but intriguing nonetheless. Includes pics and description of each medal.
This tempts me to start prestige mode. I have been a lvl 55 for about 3 weeks now. I might put my golden gun quest on hold and try for prestige 10 before starting it again. What level or prestige rank has everyone else made it to?
I have the golden M60. I need the MP44 challenge to get the golden AK47 (I need all 150 yet). I need 30 HS with the mini Uzi and 55 with the Skorpion to get the golden Uzi. 40 more with the pump shotty to finish those. Don't even want to think about the sniper challenges. I also stayed at Lvl 55. I saw no reason to complete them again. All boot camp done, all elite done, 80 - 90 % done on all of the other challenges.
You are further along than what I was. I broke down and started Prestige about 45 min ago. I didn't do too bad, but it certainly is hard starting over. I know what you mean about the sniper rifles. The fact that the hit detection for the sniper rifle doesn't register half the time, is all the more reason to avoid them.
Lol, gave in huh? I really wanted a name with 100% completion, thus the effort with all the guns. I hate the M60, I never use it, I just wanted to say I did it. I've found the shotguns to take the most effort for a HS. Typically I catch some noob with a sniper and I walk up behind them, aim at their head from 2 inches away and pull the trigger. I get a headshot and they get to enjoy the feeling of seeing it on the kill cam. How dumb do they feel then... lmao.
Lol, that's certainly a Kodak moment. I bet the "suicide bomber" challenge would make for another sweet "kill-cam".
Suicide bomber is "Misery loves company" on the PS version, but I know what you're talking about. I got a multi kill with that one btw.. Vacant domination, just run into the doorway at flag "C" where they all camp. Cooked, dodging, boom. Myself and 3 enemies. :)
M16 FTW I can snipe better with it than an actual sniper rifle
The MOH isn't for the tenth prestige level.
lately its kind of seems like im just going round in circles becuase IW couldnt be assed to put in more ranks. It should of been more like the BattleField PC games, will medals and ribbons and the ranks spaced out abit further. Still i know alot of people need the little tap on the back to keep them playing thats what quickly ranking up gives them. I mean the difference between lvl 54 and 55 is about 5000 points, you can easily do that in 4 or 5 matches on Headquaters.
Already knew, got the same medals in BF2.
I'm not going to bother with Prestige. I really do not feel like restarting everything again just to prove my value to other online COD4 players. I think it's very lame.
True. But I have to admit I notice it when I'm playing against someone of a high prestige rank. I tend to pay attention to how many times I frag that person and vice versa. I guess just to measure if they are as good as their rank implies.
In this game, rank does not seem to matter at all. The ranking in this game just proves how dedicated you are to playing online (... or how much free time you have). If you're facing someone who is Level 30 or higher, you know that player is experienced enough to know what he/she is doing.
This is pretty Cool! Its good to see they have based the medals on something real (Y) :-)
Listen, I enjoy the game, however, they should NOT be basing them on real medals. Prestige is fine and it rewards and recognizes good players. But watching a Pres 1 guy running around with a Commendation Medal on his head is ridiculus. I just have to turn to my right while playing and see the REAL one that I earned in Iraq for valor hanging on the wall and just kind of shake me head. I see where people have been talking about posting their prestige medals and stuff on their myspace, etc. So people will think they really earned these medals?? Not Cool infinity ward, *slap the designers*, design your own game specific rewards, don't take away from the real medals.
I've noticed at the end of a match there are what look like dog tags by some players names. Is that something they have done or is that and accomplishment in the match.
It means the player was dead when the game ended.
that sucks i thought it was going to be something cool. something i can strive for lol
I so regret doing prestige mode. Losing my claymores, p90 and 50 cal hurt so much. Im back up to 27 and I find that as Im paying more attention to the challenges and to complete them its alot faster than the first go round. Either way, when I get back to 55 again I will not do prestige again lol From that point I want all the golden guns. I love this game...
I'm still going through my first round on Prestige mode, but damn is it ever annoying. After finally getting comfortable with the weapons and perks, all I could think was "when do I get my claymores again?". Needless to say, I don't think I'll be going through Prestige Mode a second time around.
It's pretty much useless. All you are really getting is a new icon next to your gamer tag. I'd understand the obsession of some people if prestige mode actually unlocked stuff when ranking up but it doesn't. It's just for bragging rights.
it also makes game battles tough. I need to have all the weapons available in a GB. Fighting a p90 with a skorpion isn't easy.
Yeah but i think i will still do prestige mode at least once just for the reason of having a different icon. And since i knew about it coming into the game i havent really focused on the challenges so ican get through the game since it's gonna go away anyway.
Prestige Mode is a good idea.
You are all big giant pussie pies
How many times can you go through prestige mode and is there something different each time you do go through it?
Golden M60 - done Golden mini uzi - done Golden shotgun - done 52 more headshots needed with the mp 44 (my god that gun suks) for the golden AK47. Sniper - eh, um, well that's gonna be a while yet... no more bubbles... :( @jackedup - 10 times and no there isn't.
do you have to go through all 10 prestige modes to start getting the gold guns or how does that work?
