So the topic is prestiging in COD Modern Warfare 3, which was to me – a newcomer of multiplayer Call of Duty – somewhat of a mystery. My main question was “When am I going to reach level 2 Prestige, and earn my next prestige token?”
WHAT IS PRESTIGING?
First, let’s define MW3 Prestiging. After level 80 you are given the option to prestige, which gets rid of all of your earned levels, weapons etc, except titles and emblems. If you opt to prestige, you go back to level 0, and have to earn all of your weapons and proficiencies and attachments all over again.
HOW DO I REACH THE NEXT PRESTIGE LEVEL?
You do what you’ve already done, you prestige again, that is, you reach level 80 again. Its that simple. The difference is that you get a new prestige level each time. I’m on my first level of prestige as of this writing, and when I reach level 80 again I’ll be level 2 Prestige and get another prestige token, go back to level 0, and lose all of my weapons.
SO REACH LEVEL 80 TO GET ANOTHER PRESTIGE LEVEL?
Yep, that’s it, you just level up to level 80 again, and as of this writing what I’ve read says you can get up to level 15 Prestige on Xbox, and either level 10 or 15 on Playstation 3, PC, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS. Things sound like Infinity Ward may change that up to level 20 Prestige soon.
A quick mention of Prestige Tokens, one is awarded each time you Prestige. The MW3 Prestige Tokens are:
- Extra Custom Class (you get a 6th, or more, custom class)
- Double XP (two game hours of double experience)
- Double Weapon XP (two game hours of double weapon experience)
- Regular Package (Callsign Title and Emblem)
- Unlock Gear (Unlock a Create a Class item early and carry it through future prestige levels – choose **wisely**)
- Hardened Package (Callsign Title and Emblem for the COD enthusiast- available at prestige level 5)
- Veteran Package (Callsign Title and Emblem for hardcode COD players – available at prestige level 10)
- Reset All Stats (resets everything including your Prestige Level, excluding titles and emblems – currently available at prestige level 15)
