    Nice!

  • Stefan Lang

    Just got into 2nd prestige ?? I should be at least 5th by the end.

  • Guywithbrains

    I am on first prestige and leveling up seems to be slightly too slow so this is good news.

    Some people are already master prestige. They must have played literally 24/7 because there is no other way they could have got master prestige. Same applies to people with dark matter camouflage.

    • LovekillerX

      I have thought the same question: how people have already master prestige and dark matter camouflages? I think they are mostly unemployed people because they if someone would have time for that.

      • Shantzonpoint

        They are prolly college roommates that take turns and play constantly or something like that.

      • Stif Meister

        Glitched accounts/boosters mainly. No single individual could get Master prestige this fast. TheRace just ended a few days ago and that was 3-4 people on the same account playing 24/7. No way one guy could do that.

        • LovekillerX

          But how about all diamond camouflages which were achieved couple of days ago… I don’t have a single diamond camouflage yet. I’m trying to get diamond snipers but that is so frustating when enemies have ARs and SMGs.

          • Some are boosting. Some did it legitimately. Itemp on youtube got diamond snipers sometime last week.

          • LovekillerX

            It will take forever because sniping isn’t my playstyle almost at all. Shotties might be a lot easier…

          • Its not just you. I snipe (not a quickscope fanatic or anything) and its taking forever for me too. Mainly because they added boost abilities, so it makes getting those one shot kills a little harder. Also, the game has only been out for 3 weeks now. Give it time

          • Stif Meister

            Again, probably boosters/glitched accounts. Or they just play a ton and have a good strategy for getting headshots.

          • シーザー クラウン

            i am myself almost done with the camos for the launchers. Only have the guardian/hardened sentrygun for the launcher with 2 rockets. Forgot the name. And then I’m done.

        • Arclight

          I watched a stream of the first official account that got to max.. they didnt cheat at all.. they just played moshpit nuketown and got around 10k points per match.. they have around 3 people rotating on the 1 account though. I’ve been playing very casually and im almost at prest 3 with 4 gold SMG camos (pharo can smd.. so hard to get headshots -_-)

          • Smayo

            I’m playing very casually as well, but I’m only level 37 prestige 0, need to step up my game I guess…

      • tuby

        I have had 2 weeks holiday. I am now half way prestige 6.jow I have to go work againhow so cant play that much anymore

    • Master

      simply by boosting. people boost in uplink and ctf because they have 1-3% players and they can find empty lobbies i run into them constantly even in dom

    • frightener-boy

      Personnally i’m nearly prestige 5 and leveling up is easy as long as you are going for challenges. I maxed 5 specialists nearly six and have diamond on ARs SMGs shotguns and LMGs, half snipers and launchers. So if you’re playing for challenges it’s easy. I always play solo on moshpit chaos or nuk3town (don’t hate)

      • iext23

        That was a nice way to boast of your accomplishments while keeping it low-key. Well done.

      • tommy

        you play to much u need to get a life lol

    • Sam11maS

      I played with a guy with dark matter and he wasn’t even that good. I picked up his gun and it was a dark matter gorgon. I was like. Noob with dark matter?

  • LovekillerX

    I hope it works this weekend so I can level up faster now that we are going to have double XP!

    • KK5

      I’m telling, gotta deal with the good stuff, snort the G-Fuel!

    • Guywithbrains

      If they would try to fix hit detection problems and add Nuk3town to normal playlists for this weekend that would be a dream to come true. Because I mainly play team deathmatch for now it would be nice to play my pre-order bonus map in not objective based game mode and at the same time get higher amount of experience than I get now by playing only team deathmatch.

      • LovekillerX

        I recommend to play domination when the double XP is live. I remember myself leveling up so fast in AW domination when the double XP was live.

        • Pahom

          What about Kill Confirmed? I’m pretty sure that you get more points for grabbing a dog tag in BO3 than in AW.

      • Aceshigh87

        If you wanna level up faster, get used to playing an objective mode. I used to be a 100% TDM player but it never seemed to be getting me anywhere so I decided to try out Hardpoint in BO2. Absolutely love the mode now. Way more points (a below average game for me gets the same amount of points as top of the board in TDM) and you get something to do that isn’t just mindless killing.

      • Pahom

        You should play Kill Confirmed. I think you get 50 points for a kill, and 100 for grabbing the enemies’ dog tags. It’s especially fun when there are multiple tags close to each other.

  • Stif Meister

    Yay, now I can get to even higher prestiges in zombies without being able to use any attachments! (NOTE: Do not prestige in zombies, folks. At least until they patch the weapon kit bug)

    • Jasco

      Yeah, its quite annoying to be honest.

    • infidel

      We got along just fine without any in zombies for years. It’s called the pack a punch noobie, get good and get packing

      • Stif Meister

        Get good? Bro I had shotguns rank on Bo2 and over half a million kills. Don’t tell me how to play zombies. It’s not that I can’t play w/out attachments, it’s that I miss my fully customized weapons from before I prestiged.

  • infidel

    First year I missed out on 2xp Day one. It’s called Fallout 4, a game which actually changed something. AW changed something, ghosts changed something. BO3 multi is BO2 with jetpacks, wallrunning and custom camos. In other words, it’s BO2.5. Zombies are badass as always, and I will run the campaign soon, but I wanted something new multi wise. Plus, F4 already has mods.

    There is enough retards bashing unrelated games for no reason, so I will let them do that. Enjoy what you play, but as a COD fan since 2003, this is the first year where something else gets more attention that COD for me. That is until they start rolling out zombie DLCs tho, the story and maps should be good, now that they don’t have to cater to last gen as well with SOE

    • Gamerazor247

      Yet most people are calling Fallout 4 a refined version of Fallout 3, because it all to feels the same, in a good way. Basically a Fallout 3.8… Cause you know… New Vegas.

      • infidel

        Lol retard. Fallout 4 is the true next gen fallout. GOTY no doubt. Those must be the same people who bitched about the graphics before the game was even out.

        • Keshav Bhat

          No need to call anyone a retard. You are allowed your own opinion, and so is everyone else. Just because you like Fallout 4 doesn’t mean other people do. I for one will not buy it as I don’t have time to invest or care for “open world” games much. But as they say, each to their own.

          • infidel

            I forgot to put an s at the end, so it looked like I called OP a retard. Sorry about that BTW, but the level of whinery so far is almost reaching the COD community levels in idiocy for that game. F4 is the big thing right now, hope it’s just a fad because someone wants to be edgy and hate the game everyone else likes.

          • LovekillerX

            I have to ask that why this site is lacking moderation? I understand that this is your hobby and you are in a hurry but moderation would be really cool actually. :/

          • jordanxbrookes

            Ikr? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • LovekillerX

            It just annoys me that people who call others retards just because other people have different opinions can just keep going with their attitude towards others.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Ikr? If only somehow someone can keep an eye on this site again ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • FazalGaming

            i can keep and eye on u, if u know what i mean

          • jordanxbrookes

            Ooooooooo ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • ScOott

            Please no .. The most stupid things used to get banned even if someone had a good point .. Things are perfect man ..

          • FazalGaming

            lovekillerx your a retard

          • ScOott

            If u can’t handle being called a retard over the Internet ur a retard.. .. What happens to freedom of speach 😮

          • Guywithbrains

            Freedom of speech doesn’t mean you can say whatever you want and whenever you want. It also comes with responsibilities.

            But whatever. I let Keshav do the judging. Meanwhile I go off the grid with you, as usual.

          • ScOott

            Why u going off the grid, because I don’t want this place to be modded .. Pathetic ..

          • LovekillerX

            That guy… he has really… how would I put it… weird values and sense of morality. But for me he is just a sad old man talking to himself. Let him talk. Life gets easier when you just go off the grid for good and keep sharing your opinions.

          • Guywithbrains

            And I will even if some users think my opinions are odd. But maybe some day we all can get along. That is what I want. And most likely what we all want.

          • ScOott

            Ur just butt hurt, I’ve made u look like a twat infront of everyone, seriously grow up, and get over it .. Ur pathetic ..

          • infidel

            Never thought I would agree with someone who has a eric cartman avatar. usually, comments from eric cartmans scream “Block me please”

          • FazalGaming

            I wouldn’t mind being a mod 😛

          • Keshav Bhat

            It’s not about being in a hurry. Truly, we just leave it open for discussion till it really gets offensive, which then we do step. We’re always watching 🙂

          • LovekillerX

            Oh that is good to hear. I thought this site has no moderation because same people keep acting offensively on this site but I guess they just haven’t grossed the line. But now that I know it it is reliefing.

          • Guywithbrains

            In my opinion they have and multiple times. But as I said below I’ll let Keshav do the judging.

        • FazalGaming

          Fallout 4 is so boring, all you do is just walk around and shoot the odd crab or whatever.

      • infidel

        That statements is a pile of lies BTW, fallout 4 is a next gen fallout. It’s a whole new game vs another reskin like COD seems to be doing every year. I don’t know how anyone could come to the conclusion it’s just “F3.8” unless they haven’t played the game or they are looking for attention. I can’t even call them retarded, because the game is already apples and oranges first half a hour in. That’s like saying that AW is COD1.5 because it has COD in the title. Yeah, I am talking about the original COD, the one with a non regenerating health bar and everything

    • jordanxbrookes

      I personally just want a normal boots-on-ground modern day Call of Duty again. All these futuristic shooters bore me because of how saturated the time setting is now. Black Ops 3 is only making me happy because it’s fun to play unlike AW. But I do agree that it can feel like Black Ops 2.5, kinda like how Modern Warfare 3 was dubbed as Modern Warfare 2.5.

      • infidel

        It’s called ghosts. The game you hate, and so does every person on this god forsaken website for some reason. First you hate it, now you want to go back to the past. COD community has absolutely no idea what it wants anymore, I hope the devs stop listening eventually and just do their own thing without worrying about what billy dipshit wants today

        • jordanxbrookes

          I don’t hate Ghosts. I’m like the only one on here who defends Ghosts lol. Sure it was boring to play at times, but I still found a way to casually enjoy it.

          • Keshav Bhat

            The one thing IW has to bring from Ghosts to COD 2016 is the hit detection.

          • LovekillerX

            This.

          • infidel

            Never had a problem with detection, or lag in ghosts. Flawless connection was one thing ghosts got right, Treyarch games can only dream about that kind of flawless net play. I want them to keep ghosts 2 exactly the same, but add on to it. Screw the haters and let the devs do their own thing. YOU DO want a different game than before, right? I know I don’t want MW2.75 or BO2.75 next year, I want ghosts 2: Bigger and better but still familiar

          • Guywithbrains

            So basically they need to keep the core of classic Call of Duty games that we love but at the same time build new things around that core.

            So instead of changing everything keep it classic but add things like new game modes, new types of guns (burst sniper rifle in Black Ops 3 is perfect example of this) etc.

          • infidel

            This is the first decent COD conversation I had in months. And with little to no blind hate. Has hell frozen over or something?

          • It’s as if unless the opinions are perfectly the same and you agree on every little thing it’s a shitstorm.

            I don’t understand how you can have a mindstorm like this.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Most definitely. Ghosts hit detection was great. Seriously 99% of my time with Ghosts I had no problems with connections and hit detection. It was MW2 standards.

          • LovekillerX

            I got only one host migration and that wasn’t even at launch. My jaw dropped.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I had a few host migrations but this was like 6 or 7 months into the game. Launch was superb.

          • GinsuVictim

            You’re not the only one defending Ghosts. There aren’t enough of us. Too many people gave up on it before giving it a chance. It took about two weeks for it to click with me, but after that, it quickly became one of my favorites. After patches and DLC, awesome, awesome game.

          • madshooterguy

            IKR, wish enough ppl stuck around for the amazing dlc maps in ghosts

          • RandomBit

            No, not the only one. Welcome to the team.

          • Bored1234

            I liked octane

      • BO3 doesn’t feel like BO2 to me in the slightest.

        BO2 was far more smoother and cleaner than BO3, it’s hard to explain but this doesn’t feel like black ops at all, and in a small way i really don’t like it for that.

        The campaign was dull and so far from being in the black ops world it sickens me, Multiplayer doesn’t have a essence of that enjoyable multiplayer and the memories i had from that game.

        I can’t say anything about zombies because that’s the only real thing that is something that actually feels apart of the black ops series as a whole.

        Another thing is that i hate how i don’t feel like im in the military, these specialists and their old constantly repeating quotes drive me nuts.

        I’d personally cut the whole silly little specialist personalities and only have their abilities, so you could make your own solider like in AW but they would have abilites and backrounds that you could choose, because honestly i hate the already old quotes of these people, I hate playing as specter and hearing his egotistical emo professionalism, Ruins edge hardcoreness and Firebreak’s stupid fire fetish constantly, nobody looks even slightly beliveable and i just feel stupid playing this game.

        I will still love its multiplayer and zombies, but BO3 will always have it’s issues that will keep me coming back to BO2.

  • Skillreks

    just got 4th prestige today 😀

    • Drakon

      Haven’t gotten to prestige 1 yet ;(

  • Thank god. Leveling up seems so slow unless you’re running 6 man parties and are constantly winning.

    • Arclight

      really? at the start I was playing ffa and you only need to be in top 3 for it to count as a win but domination/hardpoint moshpit on nuketown seems to be the biggest xp dump for me.. get anywhere between 6-9k points per match

      • Yeah, obj based games are the best for leveling up. I normally gain a level every 3 or so games, if we win.

  • lunator100hd .

    Time to prestige! i hit level 55 a weak ago, so finally this weakend with double xp is a good time to grind.

  • Matthew

    Gotta get me sum of dat double XP!

  • jordanxbrookes

    I’m about halfway through Prestige 2 so this is good news for me since I’m wanting that Prestige Master 🙂

    • LovekillerX

      I’m aiming for prestige master too. I wonder what is the negative side of prestiging now that you don’t lose your attachments and challenges that are already complete or still active… I know I have to unlock every gun and specialist but that doesn’t bother me.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Negative side is that you’re forced to prestige up to Prestige Master if you want to unlock everything, basically like Black Ops 2. As someone who really didn’t want to prestige this year, it’s annoying 😐

        • Sexy Mcgee

          Also, you have to go through almost an entire prestige until you get to unlock again and keep Dead Silence.

          • Wolf

            it is nice that now you keep your challenge progression after you prestige

          • Smayo

            Aren’t those permanent unlock tokens there after you prestige like in bo2 ? If not that sucks major balls….

          • シーザー クラウン

            Permanent unlock tokens exist just like they did in blo2. I just my first one to get Ghost. Since I’m tired as fuck of the uavs and I’m almost done with diamond for launchers.

          • Smayo

            Same here, I think I ranked up more by shooting down UAV’s and CUAV’s then by regular kills 🙂

          • Sexy Mcgee

            You get a permanent unlock token but you have to reach the rank that the item becomes available for unlocking again before you permanently unlock it.
            So if you want to permanently unlock Dead Silence on your first prestige you have to hold on to your token until you reach level 50.

          • Smayo

            Ah oke, that’s a little different then in bo2 where you could unlock everything you wanted as soon as you hit level 4, clear now…

          • Dustin

            No u don’t u can presently unlock in the prestige minus

      • Arclight

        nothing negative about prestiging other than not meeting level requirements for equiptment and specs etc

      • Kobrah

        You have to unlock all your weapons/specialists again

      • Kerry K

        It’s brilliant to prestige now. You lose nothing

  • lunator100hd .

    Does anyone knows whats the new thing that 3arch was talking about after prestige master?

    • jordanxbrookes

      You can customize your Prestige Icon I believe. Don’t know whether that means you can use an Emblem Editor as such to create your own or if you get to choose the Prestige Icons from previous Treyarch games. If it’s the latter, I’m using that Black Ops 15th Prestige 😀

      • lunator100hd .

        Really? It felt like it would be something more big than this.

      • Felipe Rios

        Whaaaaat!??? I didn’t even hear about that! That would be awesome!

        its only a bit of cod4 moding some bo3 stuff? odd complaint since bo3 will soon have mod tools 🙂

        • this is not for advertising, stop advertising

          it’s not that hard

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Glad I did the Fresh Restart Dark Ops challenge right after hitting Prestige 1. Now to level back up fast straight back to prestige 1 and all the way to Master Prestige.

    • FazalGaming

      What is dark ops?

      • Stefan Lang

        Challenges that you earn when you complete them. You wont know what you had to do to complete it until you’ve earned it.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Dark Ops challenges are special challenges that are unclassified in game (doesn’t tell what you need to do in order to complete the Dark Ops challenges) but the challenges has been specified by the community who have found out what the Dark Ops challenges are.

    • Crux

      Dear god please tell me that isn’t a challenge, been going for every single title (have 6 dark ops and 90 multi player) please tell me that isn’t really a thing >_<

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        It is a Dark Ops challenge confirmed. it’s best to do it now rather when you have all diamond cameos and are Prestige Master imo. That would hurt to Fresh Retstart at that point but right now didn’t hurt at all. Got a nice calling card for doing it too. 🙂

  • Mick

    Off topic, but does the game crash for you guys at all? I’m on xbox one and I experience crashing quite a lot. I don’t know if it’s because I bought the physical disc copy of the game or what, but it’s kind of annoying and I’m wondering if it happens to the people with digital copies.

    • Bored1234

      I’m on ps4 but iv never crashed I also got physical copy

      • Mick

        It doesn’t happen constantly, thankfully, but every couple of hours or so. Maybe it’s just my xbox being a dumb shit :/

        • Bored1234

          haha yea i think its your xbox too

        • Smayo

          No I have the same, it stops and only shows a blue screen, I press the xbox button to go to the home menu and usually it starts then again where its left of, but it’s pretty annoying yeah

          (I have a physical copy btw)

          • Mick

            I experienced the blue screen thing once or twice, but usually my game just freezes at random points within the hours and the audio glitches out and stutters really loud, resulting in the game crashing and bringing me back to the dashboard as if I pressed the xbox home button when I didn’t. So I have to restart the whole game up again :/

          • Smayo

            That sucks man, the issue you talk about happend to me as well but in the beta, never in the full game, maybe you should delete and install the game again, see if it brings improvement (that is if you haven’t already tried that ofcourse)

  • J4MES

    This is the first COD since BO3 where I feel determined to go all the way and hope to make some good progress over the weekend. I’ll probably be playing this for the next 3 years so I’m not in much of a rush though! Also ranking is this game is really enjoyable with the camo challenges and plenty of other ones where XP is fun to earn. I barely reached prestige 2 on AW and to think some went to prestige 30 – probably the same idiots lining Activision’s pockets with easy supply drop money!

    • Capten ermirica

      James is a queers name. I think you’re fat and ginger.

      • RainZzZ

        So you think that James Bond is fat and ginger?

    • SuperImpact

      This is the first COD since BO3…

      ???

  • Glad to see this!

  • Diego Diniz

    OK. What about the LAG? What about this FUCKIN LAG??????????????

  • CoDforever

    Oh my jheezus I am getting my shit bucket out

  • Siftblade

    I’m not even prestige 1 yet, should probably play something besides gun game lol

    • Smayo

      After a week of ups and downs I finally found my game mode in bo3, kill confirmed is it for me this year, also decided it’s best I stick to SMG’s in this game, doing better and better every day, time to rank up now….

      • Sean

        Kill confirm only way to rank up easy lol

        • Smayo

          And it’s actually fun as well, I was mainly a TDM player (with occasional a match or two of domination) but TDM in bo3 is slowly becoming a discount S&D without the fun of S&D, real slow and campy and nothing compared to TDM in bo2 or other entries in the series…

      • Kerry K

        I found chaos moshpit as my level up nirvana.

  • Yess I’m almost 2nd prestige in zombies

  • YoungMurf

    Was quite disappointed they didn’t activate double XP for launch weekend.. Ah who am I kidding thanks Treyarch!

  • banerising

    I have a real problem with most of these new games, I can’t stop playing them and I want to play all of them at the same time. At least this gives me a reason to not play BO3 until the weekend.

  • Arclight

    Double XP? Better headglitch nuketown with a gorgon.. Jk plz don’t you are the reason I cri

  • Fuckinf finally it’s insane how much XP it takes to rank up

  • SuperImpact

    Unlocking dead silence now and the M8 next. Thank god for 2x XP and NukeTown.

  • Pahom

    It’s good that 2xp will be on. To be honest, I was surprised they didn’t turn it on when the game launched. They did that with BO2, AW, and Ghosts (I think)

    If they need to decide wether or not to give the 360/ps3 something as simple as double xp. You’lle have to wonder in what capacity they intend to support the last gen versions of bo3
