These might be the Prestige emblems found in Call of Duty Ghosts. We say might because of course these are not confirmed and no one has earned all of them as far as we know since the servers have only been up 24 hours. These emblems were seen in game by multiple sources (and with different player names) in the PS3 version of Ghosts. If we get confirmation that they’re fake or if theres more we will let you know. We’re not sure how these were in game yet but chances are it wont last long as a patch is expected to roll out on launch day.

UPDATE: Charlie INTEL fan @ImDiabetus sent us over hi-res images of ALL 10 Prestige emblems along with their prestige backgrounds.

    They must like using skulls….

  • DanTheGunner

    I bloody hope not!

    • LENNOX vg

      yeah they look realy bad

    • Batman

      They look awesome

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        I know IW don’t make great prestige emblems but this is worse than MW3 emblems!

        Emblems should be distinguishable and unique like in BO2 and even BO1 not bland with added layers from lower emblems…

        • PsychOutGaming

          Great Grammar. Sarcasm if u didn’t notice. It is worse, not more worse

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            Corrected just for you sir.

          • PsychOutGaming


          • SufferingMoon5

            Not to poke fun, but you did still use the word “u” instead of ‘you’ in your correction.

          • Jay Adams

            internet police

        • Evan

          They are distinguishable. In each emblem there is x amount of stars for the prestiege. For example prestiege 8 has 8 stars on the emblem.

  • CoDforever

    As you guys know im a SUPER hardcore cod fan, but these are terrible ..

  • You

    Terrible :/

  • efwef

    I will pay to say that these are not the real prestige emblems for Ghosts

    • XxShaDoWw_038

      These are the true emblems- a friend how plays the game just send me pictures of them!
      i love this emblems, because the last prestiges are the best so we have to prestige to get the good once!

  • Primey_

    Weird. I found this on reddit

  • Xeroh

    if those are legit IW didnt put any effort at all lol

    • Batman

      They were too busy making the game playable

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        I’m hearing the maps are all large and play like downturn and turbine made babies.

        • noah

          less spawn trapping more gun skill and no targetfinder, no deathstreaks and finally no tac insertion great job infinity ward

          • Im_So_P1553D_0FF

            the spawn raping is horrible, you spawn run about two metres away and get shot in the back from someone on the other team who spawnned in exactly the same place. The game is annoying
            , better gun skill yes as you have to be more accurate, no target finder but that gun with the orange scope is practically a target finder, and tac insertion is actually good, unless used for boosting which is a good reason why its been removed

          • iiMayheM

            Actually, the spawns aren’t that bad, unless, being an idiot, you keep running towards the people killing you ^-^ However, because the maps are so large…you occasionally do spawn in front of the enemy.

          • lagdden spector

            may not have a;lot of spawn trapping but how many times a game do you get spawn killed?its nuts that happens to me at least once a game..and same lag black ops 2 had is back..

          • RiffRaff

            wrong. target finder exists and it’s much worse because once you’re in the sights it shows where you are behind a wall too it’s the last, most expensive scope on the guns.

          • iiMayheM

            But, you have no field of view, I despise that sight, except when I turn it into Iron sights, because it works well when its put down.

      • david

        This I will not believe lol the last two have been really bad.


      They always have the worst emblems.

      • Smith N Wesson

        Infinity ward’s prestige are closer to real medals, and are not completely fictionalized.

        • iiMayheM

          I wonder if people realized that the Black Ops 2 Emblems made no sense…. lol

      • falahcod

        mw2 prestige 10

    • Drand

      Are your eyes glued on or something? They’re better than any other prestige emblems I’ve seen you fucking potato.

      • Marcus Idenäs

        There were other uglier ones Before they updated this page, these guys are talking about those, old/placeholder ones. Aka these

    • Marcus Idenäs

      They have updated the page with the actual ones now.

  • Alex

    Please refer to a picture of a modder with what looks like to be 10th prestige.

  • Blastors

    The top picture with blue background… Now that are some good emblems, the other ones suck…


    IW makes the worst emblems. Just like these new maps.

    • iiMayheM

      Hop off the hate bandwagon kid. IW will always make the best Call of Duty’s. (COD4, MW2, Ghosts – Top 3)

  • Mitch

    The updates one like quite good.

  • Drago
  • John

    There are no prestiges sherlocks, they have stated numerous times its 10characters instead of prestige >.>

    • Mitch

      There are prestiges. Every character can be prestiged once, and there’s 10 characters. If you prestige 3 characters, the game will say you’re prestige 3.

    • Infernorock12

      There are prestiges and prestige emblems, Mark Rubin talked about it to some people at a secret meeting and some of those people made videos on YouTube explaining the new prestiging system.

  • Mista Rehab

    do you need any screen shoots , i have the game and dont mind posting anything

    • Arjuna Ajai Kumar

      how does specialist work?

      • Batman

        Search for videos on youtube, this time it is a really complicated system

      • Mista Rehab

        depending on the perk you pick for your 1st unlock … if you pick high pier perks eg like this

        deadeye it unlocks after 6 kill
        danger close it unlock after 11 kills
        stalker it will unlock after 15 kills

        then after 17 the bonus ones will unlock (you get a set mount of points to use)

        if you pick lower pier perks like

        ready up it will unlock after 2 kills
        strong arm it will unlock after 4 kills
        takedown will unlock after 6 kills
        bonus will unlock after 8 kills (you get a set mount of points to use)

        • Sentrymann

          Thanks for the information! I have a question as well, what kill-streaks are available?

          • Mista Rehab

            they are all available from the go as long as you have the points you can buy them

            say there is a killstreak thats 7points you can buy it for 7points or wait till you get to the unlock level and it unlocks for free

          • Sentrymann

            The purchasing system sounds interesting, so you can technically never use any squad points and still unlock everything?

          • Karl Mathis

            The system sounds to me like it’s built around a yet-to-be added micro-transaction system.

          • daftcinema

            Exactly. Squad points needed for 8,9, and 10th prestiges is a bit outrageous, and you may need to conserve your squad points starting as soon as 5th-6th prestige. I believe they will make squad points purchasable. And they will add more prestiges which will be free, but the squad points needed will be outrageous as well.

          • iiMayheM

            I thought that at first too, when I saw squad members costing 200-500 squad points, but nearing level 60 on my first go around, I have 200+ and my perfect class set ups. The game pushes you to actually complete those Operations/Challenges.

          • Night7talker

            All i’d like to know is this, when you first start in Multiplayer, how
            many squad points do you have off the bat to purchase your perks,
            weapons, equipment etc?

          • Karl Mathis

            I don’t remember exactly but it wasn’t much. Any time I’ve wanted to try a new gun I’ve needed to play a bunch of maps to save up points. Kill streaks cost as many squad points as they do kills, so they are prohibitively expensive.
            Overall I dislike this system compared to the previous systems.

    • King

      Post some now!

    • TheShadowReaper

      i really wish you were on PC so you could give us a screen of the graphic settings but i guess not.

      can you give us a pic of a map except the one we’ve seen in the reveal that has been changed from Odin Strike? any map will do, just want to see how much they change.

    • Grigori

      Is Extinction one big map or multiple maps?

  • Infinity Ward REALLY likes skulls. I don’t know why.

    • lMattW

      Both studios do. 2 Blops emblems and 4 BO2 emblems are skull-based. 1 MW2 and 3 MW3 emblems are.

      • Don’t forget prestiges 11 through 20 on MW3!

        • XxShaDoWw_038

          that counts as 1

  • You The ones with the blue background are real 😀

  • Nasty

    The top one is my gyazo 😀

  • Nasty

    My gyazo doe 😀

  • AltairPTForce

    The worst prestige emblems since world at war

    • asdad

      i seriously LOL’d

  • dal236

    They aren’t, I have played the game early and experience full prestige hackers, I don’t have images because I was at a friends house, but I know these aren’t it

    • dsf

      the top ones are real

  • idefaultzz

    i want to know why ppl are bitching about the maps? i heard they were the best looking and designed maps even tho they are quite big your gonna buy the game and rage at it and buy the next one anyway lol

    • Batman

      Ghosts´s maps are the best since BO1.

      BO2/Mw3 maps were all small and all terrible

      • TheShadowReaper

        BO1 maps are as good as COD4’s and in some cases even better. (hint: Summit) i just hope Ghosts gives us these kind of maps that have strategic points and solid lines of sight and not the orgy that we got in MW3.

        • iiMayheM

          If you look at BO2’s maps, they are literally all the same. 3-laned, with one flanking point. Except the ones brought back form older games. Ghost’s maps are absolutely amazing.

          • TheShadowReaper

            at least BO2 maps are a small improvement over MW3’s orgy, and Ghosts maps are plain garbage with a few exceptions. the 3 lane with 1-2 flanking points is the setup that we had since COD4 and was working amazingly well. the best maps are in COD4 and BO1 which use this setup. and i believe in the “if it isnt broken dont fix it” ideology. but no, they had to break the already perfect setup to make these atrocious maps that now Ghosts has.

          • iiMayheM

            Ghosts maps are actually really balanced so you arent forced to use an SMG. I wont lie, Mw3 was a bug orgy haha. Sure COD4’s maps were sortve laned, Crash wasnt. Meltdown wasn’t, Vacant wasnt, Broadcast…nope, now that I think about it… the only laned map was Wetwork. BO1? The maps were actually REALLY well designed. WAW? TreyArchs finest until the hackers came 🙁 Don’t tell me BO2’s maps are remotely good… when they copy and pasted Nuketown onto a boat and called it Hijacked… oh, the only good maps were Uplink, Dig, and Drone, Magma, and Takeoff, IMO because they were balanced or from previous ganes.

          • TheShadowReaper

            Vacant uses the lane system. thats why its such a good map. same for Crash with a small place in the core of the map where the lanes end. every COD4 map uses the lane system except Creek and Countdown. some use it differently but its still the same system mind you. BO1 has some of the best maps in the entire franchise using that system to its fullest. and then MW3 comes…so what happened? did they threw all of their imagination about good maps out of the window and then gave us these lame maps? then they continued that in Ghosts. and as far as BO2 goes, i dont want to sound favorable to Treyarch but they are a bit better than Ghosts maps and way better than MW3 maps. ofc they use the lane system which is my favorite but they dont do justice to it and instead of imaginative maps we get these mediocre quality maps in BO2. i hope Treyarch redeem themselves and the franchise in their next title this november.

  • Poplur33

    They’re ugly same things that looks lightly different

  • Anonymous Gamer

    Does anybody have a link to a campaign play through or any mp gameplay

  • Josh

    Cannot be asked to pristige if that’s the case – ugly!

  • lMattW

    The ones at the bottom could be Clan related.

  • Infernorock12

    In the pictures of the prestige emblems on top, the non-crappy ones, the 5th and 6th prestige emblems are the exact same one and so are the 8th and 9th prestige emblems, so there are only 8 prestige emblems shown in that picture. The crappy ones at the bottom only have 9 emblems because the first one is the Commander rank, not a prestige emblem.

  • Infernorock12

    I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but if you look at the cooler looking emblems at the top, around the edges of the square of the last prestige emblem you will see the Rectangle Select tool, which is usually found in editing programs like Photoshop or, outlining the square.

    • Devin Wolfe

      That’s obvious as he had to snip them out of the game files and place them in a file.

      • Infernorock12

        I know, I thought the same too, but I just wanted to point it out.

  • bsktballmsu1

    the last one looks sick but the others are trash

  • .45


  • COD 4 had the best prestige emblems

    • Batman

      No BO2/BO1 had the best

    • Xecho

      Just becasue CoD 4 was better in everything doesn’t mean they had the best emblems. They were shit.

      • dirtycallahan

        some in cod4 were bad, but no prestige emblem top cod4s ninth prestiege

      • Well I thought they were the best

  • CrAzYJaYzZz

    I like the last one.

  • ccrows

    All that matters is the 10th.

    With that said, IMO that is the worst master prestige symbol in the series…

  • Zane

    I think I have found the actual Prestige Emblems! Check out this link and look behind the soldier.

  • Batman

    They look like BO1 emblems but worst.

    They are real I can confirm it, and in my opinion they look awesome in game

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      Wait, what was wrong with BO1 emblems??

  • King

    some nice gameplay if you wanna see what the game looks like in different maps!
    (not my channel or my gameplay)

  • l–Ox–l

    Sorry for my bad english, is not my main language, i have a question, i have seen a lot of multiplayer gameplay on youtube and i’m very worried about “dynamic maps”, i really don’t see any dynamics in the maps, can somebody tell me if i’m wrong?
    P.S: I love Call of Duty.

    • Euejehshdjdbs

      Your English is fine, the dynamic parts are things like the telephone pole that falls on the car, small bits of destruction, the gas station that can be destroyed, stuff like floods and earthquakes, you get the picture.

      • l–Ox–l

        Yes mate! Thanks for the info!

        • What a friendly conversation.

          • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

            This is how the internet should be. Thanks for making the internet a better place.

            However on this same page some Xbox One fanboy has posted somewhere on this page. “Enjoy your credit information being stolen by some hackers.” Like what the phuck!? Is there really any need.

          • iiMayheM

            Welcome to the Xbox’s community xD One reason I chose Sony over Xbox, people on PlayStation are nicer.

    • Batman

      You can open/lose doors in freight
      You can activate gas that will blind the enemies totally causing a giant fog in soreveign
      You can destroy the gas station in octane/You can destroy some parts of the map
      You can destroy completely strikezone
      You can destroy some parts of chasm
      You can make a satellite crash in whiteout
      You can destroy that big thing in stonehaven making it change the layout of the map
      There is a lot of earthquakes in tremor
      And much more

      Hope it helped, and your english is fine

    • Drei OG

      Or, another example, the baseball map. After launching the 25 killstreak KEM Strike, the map is completely changed.

      Plus your english is great.

  • Oriole5

    I have a hard time believing that the simple skulls are prestige emblems. Hopefully it is the emblems on the top of the article.

  • TheCheeseWeel

    is anyone doing a livestream of ghosts right now? i wanna see what the game looks like

    • Batman

      Search on youtube

    • One point……theyve had ghosts livestream for like a week and a half now.Its like twitch tv

  • Goncrzy

    if cant be prestige 5 and 6 are the same

  • Xecho

    Those emblems are correct. They are the actualy prestige emblems for Ghosts

    • TheShadowReaper

      NOOOOOOOOOO! where is SnD? this is a huge loss for the COD franchise.

  • ChaCha

    first set of pics is sick! but theres only 8 , 2 are repeated, the bottom pics suck asss

  • K.E.M

    not all are the same though. They have different color backgrounds. and YES they are real,honestly the last 3 are sick as fawk! (:

  • SonicDash06

    They better not be

  • Hesh fucked my mom

    No difference between 5&6, 8&9. The 10th looks sexy

  • ados

    they look fucking sick

  • NiftyGam3r

    Nothing special with the design… I preffer bo2 emblems

  • Daniel Sims


  • idefaultzz

    now these real ones look sexy.


    They look great. Cant wait to get to 10th.

  • OnlyWar

    Cant wait to play COD Ghosts in 1080p on PS4…..

    • Samuel Fogle

      I am a sony fan, but fuckin a’ dude, stop fucking posting the same shit over and over and over. It is getting really annoying and old, very quickly.

    • Burn in hell fanatic fanboy

      Enjoy your credit information being stolen by some hackers.

    • //[email protected]”””//

      can’t wait to play it on my gtx 780 😉

      • Djshrimper

        I uh, probably wouldn’t count on that. The game is very poorly optimized for PC. Even with a GTX 780, everything at max is gonna leave you ate around 40-50FPS. 60 sometimes, depends on the map. Hopefully they patch this soon, because I was really looking forward to playing this smoothly on PC. I mean, it’s only Call of Duty. It shouldn’t be this hard to run.

        Seriously, 6GB RAM required! That’s insane.

        • //[email protected]”””//

          lol thats terrible, almost comical if it’s true ( I have not bought it yet) I can run bf4 at 60 fps 1080 p ultra although I have 16 GB ram

          • Djshrimper

            Yeah, Ghosts is pretty terribly optimized. I have 16 Gigs of RAM and a GTX 660Ti 3GB and on max settings, it plays at around 40-45FPS (1920×1080). It’s pretty terrible. Hopefully they release a patch soon.

          • //[email protected]”””//

            Just checked the steam forums and theres a guy with GTX 770 sli getting dips, that setup runs crysis 3 maxed at 62 FPS 2560×1440


          • iiMayheM

            I only have a Radeon 6670, backed with a 6core processor and 12GB of ram, I ran the game fine on the highest possible graphics.

  • TheShadowReaper

    they look…unique. at least something different than getting dragons and double weapons as an emblem.

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      How are they unique when some layers i.e. swords, stars and skulls are being repeated across multiple emblems. Unique means there should only be one of its kind and shouldn’t look like any other emblem in anyway.

      • TheShadowReaper

        well, stars is something new. and i guess skulls and stuff is a fetish that IW and 3arc have but these look unique. we have seen skull emblems alot in the COD franchise but not like that. and dont start about like they are the same as BO2 and MW2/3, its the details i’m talking about.

  • khh1968

    People won’t have to ask what prestige you are anymore, they can just count the stars!

    • Samuel Fogle

      Nice notice!

    • Everybody went up and counted…at least I did.

  • K.E.M

    not the best,but still looks cool

  • ORB1T4L

    Stars and skulls WTF IW ? -_-

  • AdamantFlux

    The updated version looks good I always prefered iw emblems looks less childish imo

  • Zarky

    I kinda like them more then other cods prestige emblems tbh 😛

  • Archer

    You know, this would have been a perfect opportunity to use the Ghosts skull somewhere in one of these.

    • Jwillzzz

      The background of the tenth prestige has the ghosts skull

      • Archer

        Sorry bout that, I meant the emblems.

  • I like 9th, pretty sick, blue with lightning bolts.

  • uknow

    They get more aggresive the higher the prestige

  • blackburnt7

    When is pre download availble for ps3?

  • Emrah Avvurur

    I’ve seen what I think is the first video showing infected, it’s awesome!

  • Shooter

    These badges look more like real life military badges which is what I like. I’m glad they don’t have a bunch of dragons, spiders, lions, scorpions and shit on them. My favourites have to be the 5th, 9th and 10th.

  • raiN

    They look solid. The only emblem I look at is max prestige, because I’ll be sitting on it 90% of the time 😉

  • PenisInYourMumsVagina

    Fair enough the prestige emblems look like shit but to be honest its just a game and they dont look to bad anyway people just go suck on a cock if you think they are bad!

  • OMGitsAliA

    These look fine!

  • Dextro_Phoenix

    I don’t know what everyone’s complaining about, I think they look siiiick! 🙂

  • Dextro_Phoenix

    No headshots for camos, so fucked off.

    • Mitch

      Body count sounds like a bitch! Hopefully it isn’t required to get gold since it’s behind gold in the order. IMO, gold should be only your achievement, not your clans. Would also be a bitch for people who run solo.

    • StraightEdgeAtheist

      Yes! No headshots.

  • Rekone

    i could live with that

  • Kitsune

    IW got lazy as fuck with the emblems :/ just look at mw3’s 11-20 prestige emblems…

  • blackburnt7

    does anyone know when the pre download of ghosts will be available on ps3?

    • vanguard

      Today the 3rd

      • blackburnt7

        do you know what time? ive searched around and i found that it will be available at 00:00 amsterdam time ( i live in the Netherlands ) but tecnically, thats the 4th of november…

  • Fuji

    These were really bad

  • BSOG

    Looks like I’ll be changing my background every time I prestige…

  • Josh

    The viper is like a remake of the AK74U

  • burrowsgeorge

    what prestige is everyone going? I’m going to level 60 no prestige on the ps3 and 5th prestige level 60 on the ps4?

    • razzleghost

      you do know your stats transfer right?

  • Batman

    Each backgrounds represent a soldier using mask, from the knight, to the ghost

  • One point

    im the only one who thinks the last emblem looks fucking sick?

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Can someone explain to me why the last skull has the devils horns?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Because aliens.

    • Lick it

      Is it against your religion? Who cares what the emblem has.

  • Emre

    skull and bones -_- and with horns of the devil.
    jews (zionists) like to make satanic images and games.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    I only like the last one. The other ones are meh. I’m on my phone, so I can’t see te backgrounds clearly. They look very similar though.

  • Guest

    I hate to say it, but they look kinda plain…

  • iAmEFFeX

    At first I didn’t like them, but the more you think about it, these make sense. You don’t need to have an over-the-top prestige icon with the amount of customization you are getting. We get a prestige icon, background, player card, emblem and custom character. How much more do you need to stand out without it looking overly cluttered. I think IW made the right decision.

  • David Sync

    I like the backgrounds but the emblems meh

  • bsktballmsu1

    other than 10 these are kinda lame, they are probably more closely related to real life ones than the bo2 prestige emblems but bo2 prestige emblems were pretty sick

  • Xecho

    Yeah! Thanks Xecho for actually giving the original video and source!

  • Boxernumba1

    Is IGN doing there giveaway Q&A this year?

  • Night7talker

    All i’d like to know is this, when you first start in Multiplayer, how many squad points do you have off the bat to purchase your perks, weapons, equipment etc?

  • abhishek

    IW plz give the job of making emblems to treywarch..they are good in creating emblems only..not game

  • Uhuh

    Anyone know what time this is in norway? 3:00 PM PT …

    What happened to the 10th prestige emblem from mw2

    • Nathan

      Placeholder i suppose

  • Fading Lee

    Much better(talking about update), they seem more military like this (sadly makes them simple which some don’t like but oh well)

  • Treyarch has much better artists when it comes to the UI aspects of the games. IW’s always seem to look so bleak.

    HACKERS ALREADY….OMGGGGGG…unless you could change the color in your would be cool

  • Khaleel Ward

    It’s cool. Not a big deal tho. Sheesh people get hype over everything. They are just emblems

  • Nicholas Adell

    IW: ok guys everyone buys are games anyways so lets just do the regular for prestige emblems, put a shape in the background then add either stars, bones, and/or skulls.

  • Some of the backgrounds look dumb.

  • xMvP
