Game Design Director, David Vonderhaar, has confirmed that “if you prestige and unlock a gun, you pick up right where you left off“. This is all part of the new leveling system in Black Ops 2 MP. Each gun has it’s own level, and you need to gain weapon XP to level the guns up to unlock attachments. So now it appears you can keep your attachments/camos after permanently unlocking the gun you pick.

    So, even if i prestige, my gun will still be there but level one?
    lets just hope there isn’t a gun that’s OP.


      no eg you unlock the mp7 at level 20 an unlock attachments camos ect, you prestige again once you get to level 20 again the gun will unlock and you can carry on with the attachments camos you unlocked in the last prestige

      It saying that the level your gun was when you prestiged will be the same level with all attachments unlocked that you had unlocked.

      Remember Vonderhaar said you can carry one gun over? Well when you carry that gun over, you start off where you left off. (Ie. M8A1-All Attachments-All Camos->Carry over-> Prestige 1 M8A1-All Attachments-All Camos.

    I think this is brilliant, and about time. Attachments I never minded unlocking again, but camos, especially gold, should always be unlocked after getting them.

      There´s a good reason to prestige

  • ??anonymous??

    Camos are challenge base, not level based

    • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

      like in cod 4 and mw2?

      • ??anonymous??

        Yes, camos are! attachments are weapon level based

      • David

        That’s interesting and challenging.

    It only works with one gun of your choosing not all weopans
