David Vonderhaar has confirmed on Twitter that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will feature 10 total prestiges, with each prestige having 55 levels. This was previously mentioned during a Twitch stream at E3, but there hasn’t been an official confirmation till now.

In addition, Vonderhaar has stated that there’s something ‘special’ as part of the prestige system that has not been announced as of now. We’ll update as we learn more.

    something special you say???

  • jordanxbrookes

    Would prefer it to be 50 like Black Ops, but 55 is fine.

    • Daniel

      50 leves 15 prestiges like BO1 & AW is perfect

  • Just nerf/remove Rejack and Bo3 should be one step closer to ‘perfect’

    • Dude Rejack isn’t OP. It could be nerfed at most but its far from OP

      • I’m sure it is OP when almost every person in the lobby goes with Rejack

        • RdJokr

          Overused =/= OP. Everybody keeps thinking it’s like Last Stand, but it’s not. Even Vahn said it himself.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It is like Last Stand but it’s not exactly like Last Stand. It’s the case of it being more annoying than it being overpowered.

          • Siftblade

            It’s not even annoying, it’s an extra free kill for me.

          • Felix Lamirande

            Yes true that, it’s an extra free kill for me too hahaha. You know when that green smoke comes out, then you look and shoot, easy way to get a kill 🙂

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Lol I killed a guy two times bc he used re jack about 30 min ago.

      • Yankeephil

        I love it, I wish I could see how many of the Exorcist medals I have. Lol

    • Prostidude

      Considering it is easy to kill someone with rejack, it ain’t OP 1. They have to do a 2 second animation 2. They have a green cloud around them that you cannot miss. xD

      • Daniel

        Its still OP

  • ScOott

    Bo3 is seriously killing me off..

    Go to my gym: all I’m thinking is (I’m wasting time not being on bo3, forgets gym ..

    Go to work: all I’m doing is checking here seeing what other people think about bo3 and wishing the hours away till I’m home

    Go to bed: wtf am I doing I could be playing bo3

    Wake up deaded off..

    Il be half glad when this beta is over to get back to normality..

    • Adavanter Mki

      I haven’t liked CoD since BO1… while this new one isn’t really anything like it… I’m enjoying it quite a bit. It might change as more and more people come to grips with it but… color me impressed/happy so far.

      • ScOott

        Yh the best bit is its not even the full game, so much still to come.. I honestly thought I’d be forever doomed to playing bo2 (the last cod I my self consider amazing) But happy days..

        • Adavanter Mki

          Also want to thank them for giving me a proper bumper jumper setup. I’m in heaven.

          • ScOott

            A what lol ? I’ve never heard that ?

          • Adavanter Mki

            It’s a control option. Bumper jumper. Literally meaning to jump with the bumper. Titanfall and Destiny share almost the exact setup and I got really use to it. BO3 thankfully has the same system. The reason I point this out is Halo does not! Wrapping my head around something that’s so different than what I’ve become accustomed to is near impossible!

          • ScOott

            Aghh well glad they got you coverd ..

          • Adavanter Mki

            Yeah it’s making me contemplate the elite controller so I can program Halo to conform! lol.

          • ScOott

            Yh I was tempted to get bo3 on xbox just for that controller, but I can’t wait a month.. And CoD is the only multiplayer game I play… May be one day..

          • If you’ve ever had a scuf before, you’d know you cant remap the bumpers.

          • Adavanter Mki

            The elite specifically lets you reprogram pretty much everything.

          • Kyle Soule

            It was a control setting that I know is in Halo and you jump with left bumper and sprint with a.

    • Ratboy

      Dont we all feel this way?

      • ScOott

        I hope so, unless me and you are just freaks of nature ?

        • Ratboy

          probably

    • I just drank bleach

      Least you’ll be able to sleep knowing A.W. was and is dog shite 😉

      • ScOott

        Lmao, no comment.. I’m going to try and be nice save my self getting in an argument for a bit, my dog shite comment pissed a lot of people off..

        Even tho .. A.W is dog shite 🙂

        • I just drank bleach

          Lmao teehee

      • EnderZ

        Brav wat is ur problem. We shatting BO3 and out of left field u cum w/this AW comment. Wat u wanna suck Scoott’s balls to show how much u hate AW. Its doing fine, people r still playing and having fun. Blunderbuss is brilliant piece of kit. Let gripping more playing.

        • ScOott

          It was just a joke, some of you A.W guys take things way to seriously man, Some guy was chatting shit earlier about bo3 n I upvoted him because he actually had a sense of humour about it, I’m not going to cry because he compared destiny to bo3, he was just fucking with you guys and you lot fall for it every time lol.. You are going to get a group of people that hate your game and be vocal about it, same with me and bo3 just deal with it ?

          • Jenish Katuwal

            Or it could just be that AW is dog shite :3

      • Daniel

        Just like you

    • Xerolh

      Yeah i can’t wait to get home and play as reaper.

    • the big dirtty

      HA! I think you and I are the same guy ScOott

    • Daniel

      Me too, and the beta hasnt even started on my X1 lol

  • Ryumoau

    I rarely go past 3rd prestige in any CoD since the first Black Ops, so 10 sounds reasonable to me.

    • Prostidude

      It is Treyarch, they always deliver. xD

  • I just drank bleach

    Supply drops will be the special announcement

    • Aidan

      I will shoot myself.

    • FazalGaming

      It would be funny is the special announcement was IEDs

    • Prostidude

      xD Kill My Self. Advanced Warfare made me a hardcore gambler. Wasted at least $300 on AW.

  • Adavanter Mki

    I don’t want to spam the comments with the same question and I’m having trouble locating it online. Are the specialist customizable at all visually? It’s not a deal breaker I just don’t like the look of most of them.

    • Xerolh

      They are, it’s just not in the beta.

      • Adavanter Mki

        Whew. I gotta do something with Battery’s hair! 😛

        • TehShadewRaeper

          She love u long time! : )

    • Prostidude

      They are focusing more on what you see in game. But, there will be some customization. Don’t expect full fledged Advanced Warfare character customization.

  • LovekillerX

    Good. Now they need to confirm that they didn’t think every specialist through.

    • RdJokr

      They all seem balanced to me. Prophet could use a bit tweaking, so his Tempest is more noticeable, but other than that, it’s fine.

      • LovekillerX

        Nomad and Battery are both pretty much OP when it comes to domination matches… just try to get that freaking B flag. ^_^’

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        Yeah I agree.Even tho I considered them annoying at the start now I ve realized they re not that big of a deal and I just don t give a shit about them lol.

      • Osner Jean

        Tempest is annoying as fuk

    • ccrows

      Still waiting to play the beta (XB1) but I’ve been saying for the past couple of months that the TTK, and the Specialist BS has me greatly concerned going into BO3.

      If it end up being too much, then yeah I’ll be going back to AW… *shrugs*

      • LovekillerX

        Good luck because you will need it. There is sometimes huge lag spikes, “shoot first to die first” applies again and there are couple of weapons that make appearance in kill feed all the time. Welcome to Black Ops 3 beta and have fun.

        • bo3garbage

          Terrible it is you have no chance if you get shot first

        • ScOott

          You seem pretty negative in all your comments, you not like the game ?

          • LovekillerX

            I’m negative about things that I don’t like. I like the game but it has many flaws which will be fixed (hopefully).

      • TehShadewRaeper

        From my experiences the specialist meter goes up by gaining xp only, not a over time it will eventually come up again deal like in destiny. Also I have found I only get two a game in domination. I was in your boat before the beta thinking the specialists would make it a sausage fest of specialists but in all actuality it isn’t. But what’s nice about the beta is you can see if u like it or not without paying 60 dollars (unless u preordered it digitally like a dumbass) ?

  • Failarch

    So much for the ‘new’ prestige system – it’s just the same old crap.

    • Stefan Lang

      They havent even announced shit about it yet. Fucking impatient ass kids quick to talk shit. He said 55 levels 10 prestiges he mentioned nothing about the said new features because they dont want to reveal that yet. Doesn’t necessarily make it the same because it has the same rank cap and amount of prestiges bo2 did. Goddamn.

      • Prostidude

        xD he deleted his account. I’m done…

    • Siftblade

      “And something special that is unannounced”

      Read the article first.

  • Saigonn

    Does somebody have an european pc beta code for me? Thanks in advance :3

  • Elias Duarte-Lopez

    10 prestiges isn’t enough for me, I hope the special announcement is SPECIAL

    • Prostidude

      Vondy said specifically they aren’t gonna add anymore prestige’s about a month ago. He just announced prestige 10, so no. The special announcement will probably be something regarding something about people at Prestige 10. Just so People at Prestige 10 can continuously have motivation to play.

  • Guywithbrains

    My favorite specialists after 27 levels is Seraph with Annihilator (surprise!). Today I got triple feed with it and it felt so awesome.

    However, now matchmaking seems to be f*cked up somehow because it doesn’t find any players so thumbs up they fix it soon.

    Side note: after reaching level 25 I started to go into lobbies where all are over level 20. Before that I played against 1-15 level players. Strange…

    • Siftblade

      Same, my matchmaking was all messed up for like 20 minutes. I just restarted the game and it seems to be working now.

      • Guywithbrains

        Although I got to try Stronghold and it ended up being another good map like other beta maps. So far so good in terms of map design (spawning is another thing).

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Mine is Outrider with Vision Pulse.

  • WhiskeyDick

    Anyone need a beta code for the rainbow six seige closed beta?

  • LovekillerX

    Well done Treyarch. Your matchmaking is a masterpiece! I’m so glad you made sure that it works when the beta is still active. Here, have my applause.

    It is freaking broken and I just lost my nuts. I hope it isn’t like that on November. ^_^’

    • Siftblade

      You people don’t seem to understand what a beta is.

      • LovekillerX

        Don’t tell me that excuse. We both know they will have same problems when the game launches.

        • lunator100hd .

          I would bet his ass

        • Siftblade

          The game is not released for a reason. It’s not done yet. Not that hard to comprehend. Other COD has issues because they didn’t have betas.

          • LovekillerX

            Tell me why other multiplayer betas have turned out to be good and working? Treyarch simply didn’t learn from Black Ops 2. As I said already, we will see same problems on November.

            Also because the beta is so short, matchmaking problems just make the beta shorter. We already lost “one day” because the actual beta launch day wasn’t a full day.

            Make the beta last longer and I’ll forgive.

          • Siftblade

            We didn’t lose one day. It started halfway through the day, so it will end halfway through the day. That’s 24 hours.

            EDIT: Also, the BF4 beta was terrible when I tried to play it compared to the actual game.

          • LovekillerX

            It started on evening in my country so me and many people living in Europe lost a day.

          • Siftblade

            It will end on the Evening in your country as well. You don’t lose anything. It’s the same as people in NA.

          • LovekillerX

            Yeah but that doesn’t bring me the launch day back. If you count matchmaking problems and lag that has been there… you can say you lost another day.

            It isn’t a beta, it is just another marketing gimmick.

          • Siftblade

            Matchmaking is fixed. I’m playing right now. It was down for like 30 minutes.

          • LovekillerX

            Doesn’t mean it won’t occur again. But never mind, I know we will be dealing with same problems when game launches and then people will send death threats again. I’ll leave this conversation because I know I have right to complain as a customer.

            You don’t have to remember everything, just remember what happened when people told that Destiny was just in a beta phase, everything will change. See ya!

          • Siftblade

            I play Destiny to this day. It’s still fun. But whatever, bye.

      • Tep Kok

        This is what everyone says every time every game has a beta and when it launches and it’s still shit you all change your argument to “But it just came out! They’ll patch it!”.

        • LovekillerX

          This. Also remember when people told that “Destiny will be good, this is just a beta”? Yeah we both know how that ended.

          • Daniel

            Destiny is good, but lacks content

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        Battlefield had betas previously and none of them had the problems BOIII one has right now.And they were open betas.

        • jxxxc

          lmfao i guess you don’t remember the glitches on bf3

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I m talking about match making problems.

        • BF4 was STILL in beta 8 months after release.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Lol true that.I m just saying that in Battlefield 4 beta didn t had these problems of finding a game.

        • Prostidude

          Keep in mind. This is the second open Beta for CoD since WaW. So, there is no reason to compare it to BF, due to the fact that they have done a lot more than CoD.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            True. But the fact that I can t play a game that I love is frustrating. Don t get me wrong, I m happy that I got to play the game for free, it s just that I want to play the hell out of it but I can t even find a lobbie .

          • Prostidude

            Yeah, they will probably fix it. Or it my be happening because they were applying the update 😛 who knows…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I just hope the actual game doesn t have this lag, I don t want to hate on the game.

          • Prostidude
        • SoulTaker

          “Battlefield had betas previously and none of them had the problems”

          That’s the joke of the century. Bad frame rate, constant freezing lag like hell etc on my PC not to mention the game still launched pretty bad. xD

  • ccrows

    Please Vahn give me the ability to reset stats then.

    10 prestiges is not enough!… 🙁

    • Joshwoocool

      what I do is after hitting max start working on challanges that I havent completed yet

    • Prostidude

      He will…

  • Anybody notice connection favoring one team over the other? It seems that most matched my team has a bad connection according to the bars on the side of the screen, and the other team has perfect connection. Guess who wins those matches?

  • DJ3K

    connection interrupted and lag on every game now smh, can’t play like this

    • Prostidude

      Getting 13 Ping, No lag, and no “connection interrupted. You just got some pretty shit connection Bruh Bruh. BO3 all dedicated servers…

    • Adavanter Mki

      Weird I was just playing normally and got hit with this. Except right now. Not three hours ago lol.

  • BO3 Hacked:-(

    Black Ops 3 hacked already. Videos are coming through thick and fast of this happening in many games. Not good:-(

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZi70hFCs2E

  • ScOott

    Anybody struggling to find a game on bo3 it’s happend to me ALOT today ?

    • Guywithbrains

      I had same problem two hours ago. Others say on Reddit they have this same problem too. Just wait and try to restart Black Ops 3 and then PS4 if it didn’t work.

      • ScOott

        Yh thanks, it gets annoying tho having to back out of bo3 at one point I had to turn my console off at the wall because it crashed my ps4 completly .. I’m glad I’m not the only one means It will have all ready been reported.. Hope that gets sorted out before launch ..

    • YoungMurf

      Yeah man was finding a game for ages then it put me into a lobby for ages by myself and nobody joined :-/ must be the update.

      • ScOott

        Yh exact same thing :-/ hope gets sorted out soon!

    • DJ3K

      bro not just that, once you do get into a match, you’re lagging everywhere

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Nah the match making is just shit. If BOIII was shit I would be calling this beta a fiasco but since I love the game I ll just try to comprehend that this is a beta.

  • Michael:BULLETCLUB

    Why would they add second chance

    • Daniel

      BO3 = BO1 + BO2

  • Ash_Killem

    I really hope its prestige master and thats is. I hate all the BS prestiges they have added in for no reason in the past.

    • Prostidude

      Vondy promised no more added prestige’s. It will stay at 10.

  • I know its unrelated, but AW multiplayer is almost like it is on pc for me now.

    I cant get into literally any game mode besides TDM If im lucky.

    I have no dlc installed, i took it off because i read somewhere it fucks with your matchmaking, so what do i do?

    • J4MES

      You can’t do much really. With no visible player count and the fact the game uses SBMM really limits your chances of finding matches. Not being able to see how many people are in a specific playlist is the final nail. If there isn’t many people online within your skillset; it’s impossible to get a game going even if there is a reasonable number playing.

      • Oh well, I guess I’m forced to reverse boost to just play the damn game.

    • Daniel

      AW is the exact same for me on X1

      • Last night it took like legitimately 20 minutes to find a game. Just absolutely unplayable. Just imagine what it would be like during the BO3 beta.

  • I don’t know if it’s the lag, sbmm, or just me being bad at the game but I have played awful the last couple hours..I was kicking butt before..

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Maybe you re tired of playing it ? I mean everytime I get tired for playing it for hours I just start running without thinking, hoping for lucky kills lol.

    • lunator100hd .

      Me too bro same shit.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Everyone’s been saying the same. They must’ve done something with the matchmaking.

      • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

        I swear to god this beta is fucked up. On the first day I couldn t even create a full party and today I m trying for hours to get in a lobbie and when I get into one it s full of lag.And the worst part is that I love the game but can t play bc of the shitty servers.

    • djml9

      That happened to me the second day. I went from doing great to gettkng like 10+ hit markers without kills. I think they had raised the TTK. Since then, ive been doing shitty.

      • I don’t know, I was playing against a couple guys in one game that were melting me. He was using the M8 and it looked in real time like he shot 1 single bullet my way, but in the kill cam it shows him shooting 3 bursts to kill me.

  • imBATMAN

    Watch when Treyarch fucks something up, not even noticeable then;
    “F^CK VONDERHAAR!!!” “I’ll send vohnderhaar death threats!”
    Then after BO3 – “3 MORE YEARS!?” “NO! WE LOVE YOU VONDERHAAR”.

    • SoulTaker

      Sounds about right !
      🙂

      • imBATMAN

        haha

    • Daniel

      “Even treyarch has failed us! BO3 is even worse than Ghosts!”
      Next year:
      “IW created CoD, they will save it!”
      “Ghosts 2 sucks more than the first one, let’s go back to BO3, that game was amazing, I loved it since launch!”
      2 years from now
      “CoD can only be saved by a new vision from a new studio, AW2 looks amazing it will be the best CoD ever”
      “Nah, the last good CoD was BO3, Treyarch save us please!”

      • imBATMAN

        You got that right!

  • king wolfe

    I found 2 invisible wall hacks that allow me to kill and not be hit. Who do we send that info to?

    • Daniel

      There is an official beta feedback page

  • Adavanter Mki

    Anyone else just get hit with crippling lag? I mean it was near unplayable. Spanned 3 different lobbies and games. Just wanted to check to see if it was game wide or something up on my end.

  • Vonderhaar said the dedicated servers crashed. I was starting to think it was only peer 2 peer. So that was why the lag was so awful.

  • https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CM97VXiVEAIFGLt.jpg
    Very cool behind the scenes pic.
    I am just following his twitter feed if anybody wants more info.

  • Luca

    dedicated servers for ps4 PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

    • Daniel

      Tthere are dedis already

  • Kyle Soule

    Nice so same as BO2.
