UPDATE:Β Condrey has clarified and stated that if you have earned a loot weapon, once you prestige, you need to unlock the base weapon again through rank before you can use the loot-custom weapon.

Michael Condrey, on Twitter, has confirmed that the loot that you earn via supply drops will not be lost once you prestige in-game.

The loot will be earned via supply drops, which are unlocked by completing challenges, leveling up, and more.

    This game is starting to sound too good to be true. πŸ˜€

    • HenryDF

      *cough* Co-Op *cough*

      Only joking, I’m really not as disappointed as some people are when it comes to Exo Survival. Yeah, it probably won’t be as good as something similar to Zombies could have been. But the game already looks great, and hopefully it’ll live up to the hype.

      • Guywithbrains

        Well it looks like it will be better than Ghosts. Basically that means win situation for everyone.

      • kyr95

        I love survival. There, i said it. My opinion, please respect it.

        • Guywithbrains

          Be careful! Bunch of kids are coming to call you names!

          More serious note: what is the difference between Exo Survival and Zombies? Both are basically endless shooting until you die. There. I said it loud. So I don’t know why people complain.

          • kyr95

            Look, i dont want to make comparisons to the other modes, because clearly i will get attacked.
            To me, as long as the mode is fun, im ok. Thats what a video game does. Entertains. Im not selfish, i just want to have fun.

          • Guywithbrains

            Games aren’t only fun because of their content. It is more about who you play with. For example nowadays I don’t play much domination because I don’t have any friends to play with (don’t get me wrong, I have friends but none of them play “crappy MW3”.) But let’s see if I can change the situation when AW comes to my PS4. It might be much funnier. πŸ˜€

          • kyr95

            Well, the only mode that i played every day with my friends was survival, so im pretty sure ill be busy πŸ˜€

          • Guywithbrains

            I play the most Infected in MW3. The best mode yet IMO. Also I play Extinction and Zombies but right now my BO2 is in my friend’s hands so I have to wait until I get to play Zombies again.

            But as I said domination might be a lot funnier if you play with a party. I don’t have to rage because my best teammate goes 2-15 stats and no captures. πŸ˜›

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            We can make some games with some fellow CharlieINTEL members on PS4. Many of my friends stayed behind with PS3. ):

          • HenryDF

            I had an issue with one or two friends deciding that the Xbox One was better, and as more and more bought it the common excuse for choosing it over the PS4 was that “everybody else has one”.

            That kinda screwed me over as I had bought the PS4 at launch…

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, my friends who did upgrade chose XB1 for the COD DLC. I have a few on PS4, but none that I actually know irl.

          • HenryDF

            The CoD DLC never really tempted me – I’ve had a PS3 since MW3, I’m used to the exclusivity, it doesn’t bother me.

            Some people would use Titanfall as an excuse too…meh. I have it on PC, I’m bored of it – the lack of any second mode is noticeable, and it just lacks any innovation beyond the Titans (which become unimpressive and boring quickly).

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I’ve had a PS3 since launch. Never replaced it or upgraded to a slim. Love that hunk o’ junk. Recently it died out, so I sold the accessories with all my games so I could afford a PS4 and all the good games combining out. RIP PS3. ):

            And yeah, Titanfall was fun at first, but got very boring and repetitive. That’s why I want AW, it has a lot of potential.

          • HenryDF

            That’s why I play CoD – apart from Ghosts, somehow I’ve managed to play a CoD game for 6-8 months and not get bored of it.

            I was bored of Titanfall in less than a month, and Destiny is already starting to bore me, and it’s been 3 weeks. CoD has something special, not sure what it is.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Exactly. Same for me. It’s the only game that can keep my interest for that long of a timespan.

          • TheShadowReaper

            wow, your friends sure are morons and ready to find an excuse right off the bat. no offense but…they are. :[ choosing to ignore facts is a form of stupidity indeed.

          • Eric Mandzuk

            Hit me up erikis300

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Will do.

            “I won’t be able to get a PS4 yet, I’ll be on the 3 but yeah, it’d be fun to play a couple of rounds with the comrades.”

          • TBD

            That’s even more rediculous than sayin Battlefield and COD are the same. There.. it’s out now.

          • Guywithbrains

            Well if you think about it… Battlefield is indeed going to Call of Duty direction, if you compare Bad Company 2 to Battlefield 4. So much difference between them. Not so much “Battlefield feel” anymore. πŸ˜›

          • TBD

            Well, go all the way then, all games are the same really..

          • Guywithbrains

            Well if we talk about FPS genre it has been said there all the games are nowadays the same (talking about the gameplay, you shoot your way to point and repeat).

          • BEFORE I START THIS IM JUST GONNA SAY IF YOU WANT TO HATE THEN GO AWAY. *Clears throat* Ok haha. Well I do see what you are saying. Yes they are both technically endless shooting until dying. Zombies is so much more than that though. I mean the small thing is that they don’t shoot at you but main things are the strats. They require more than survival. It’s got the cool feature like the mystery box, perks, upgrading your weapons, teleporting places. Zombies has the huge story line. All of the easter eggs and crazy imaginative weapons. That is what make zombies so special.

          • waveRaiin

            True, only difference is one was made my Treyarch and the other by Infinity Ward.

        • HenryDF

          I liked it in MW3. I get why people are disappointed, because they expected something else; but people shouldn’t be disappointed because they think it’s gonna be bad.

          • kyr95

            I would understand people hating it if they hated mw3’s survival, but we havent even seen gameplay!
            With the exos and the increased difficulty who knows how it will be?

          • HenryDF

            Exos should be good, particularly with the enemies having them.

          • I do agree. I never played survival too much but I did towards the beginning of the game. I was pretty disappointed hearing it’s returning though. But after finding out some of the features they added it dies seem very improved. Still not too thrilled though…but I’ll for sure grind it out towards the beginning.

        • TheShadowReaper

          nawhhhh! yu ar rongggg! servivel is bad and yu shuld fiiil badddddddd!

          or something like that. i’m not known for my troll imitations. πŸ™‚

        • Playing with a friend was (and still is) loads of fun in MW3.
          Can’t wait for ” Here they come! ” while playing with 3 friends.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Yeah Survival is the worst Co-Op mode.

      • waveRaiin

        I agree with you. For me, personally Survival and Spec-Ops Missions were my favorite game modes in MW3. The multiplayer was crap.

    • waveRaiin

      I know man. B)

  • MyKogInYourAshe

    The brazilian guy said that the zombie camo has something related to the co op !!!

    • kyr95

      Can you post the tweet here?

      • MyKogInYourAshe

        he said in a video “I will give you a hint, the armor he’s wearing, is unlocked through the co op mode”

        • kyr95

          do you have a link? πŸ˜›

        • spartanelite

          Unlocked through Co-op is really veige

        • Charlie

          Completing a zombie horde round in survival I bet if true.

          • Guywithbrains

            “It isn’t Zombies mode but it has zombies” – The same leak guy who told all the other info about co-op.

          • Charlie

            Exactly, at this point that’s the only thing that makes sense. I think there is definitely more to survival than what was shown, my guess is well get a full trailer soon showing off some special rounds you can get to.

    • Xecho

      That’s totally fucking stupid because it’s already been confirmed that the armour he is wearing has to be earned with headshot challenge.

  • Josh

    The base gun will need to be unlocked again once prestiged to access any loot variants of the gun you may have.

    • Ryumoau

      i like that. its fun re-earning weapons at a certain level and adds more replay value.

    • Jimmeh

      That’s good to hear. Was scared it would be like Ghosts’ unlocking system, and that itself was boring. (Having almost everything unlocked at early levels)

    • TheShadowReaper

      wow, that sounds REALLY clever. good job SHGames. this game sounds better and better with every day passing. lets hope it is as good too.


    What all does reset? PLEASE DON’T BE LIKE MW3

  • Of cause it won’t.

  • Ryumoau

    This is great news. πŸ™‚

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    weapon prestiges? prestiges all 350 weapons?..twice? O-O

    • I think you would prestige your base weapons, not your loot necessarily your loot weapons.

  • Myke Fletcher

    I like this idea. However, I would think that once you get into the later prestige levels there will be no reason to use any of the standard guns anymore as you would probably have unlocked some that are much better. Maybe not, we will have to see.

  • Saint123q

    Now I’m aware i may get attacked for this, but i really don’t care…let the children of the corn attack. Anyway, I am glad to see Sledgehammer bringing things into AW that we loved in Black Ops 2. Some features, guns, perks, etc may of been overpowered, or just down right annoying to most people, but it was a fun game with amazing maps probably the only COD that I liked all of the maps, save one. I truely think and pray that Sledgehammer will give us the COD we are waiting for. They added in a classic playlist for those that dont like the idea of the Exo which is cool, they added in ranked playlists, I mean if you really pay attention, SH really is listening to us and I am glad they are, now as for the support post launch I cannot say, but I believe in SH and I know they wont let us down.

    Now as far as the co-op, I think it’s going to be very fun. Atleast it has more variety in it and makes it more challeneging which is good. πŸ™‚

    • MrGladiator20

      What I like is that SHG said they were fans of cod the selves and that’s how they see themselves. From the start ever since they said that they have done almost everything we like because we are fans just like them. I trust this to be a great cod game but my hopes aren’t up like some people. The reason being, people over hype a game (just like exo-zombies) and get butthurt because it’s not what they were expecting. So just think it’s another fun game to test out and then you will enjoy it. Also see the bright side of things for once. Everybody is always like you die so fast and omg how did I die?! Just remember, if they can do it to you, you can do it to them too. That’s how I was able to handle ghosts until late January. Sure it was my least played cod but if you try to enjoy it and look at the bright side you will be much happier with your purchase.

  • Anyone know what the deal with the Orbital Care Package is? Does it just give you the base scorestreak or does it give you a streak with random modules on it? I think it would be awesome if you could get and ungraded scorestreak from the OCP! What do you guys think?

    • Guest 601

      Orbital care package is just the regular base score streak.

  • mountkarma

    Can someone explain if loot weapon skins are additional to receiving regular skin drops from challenges. The recent language from Condrey is confusing me now.

    “The loot will be earned via supply drops, which are unlocked by completing challenges, leveling up, and more.”

    It sounds like hes saying loot is gained from challenges and leveling so wouldn’t that mean that, that is replacing the mechanism for how skins used to be received? Now you get random loot drops ( skins ) for completing challenges?

    • Charlie

      I’m thinking if you complete a specific challenge, you’ll unlock a specific supply drop that has a camo, Exo and helmet or something. Some challenges might be random drops and I think as you play and rank up you get random drops.

      • James Puckett

        The supply drops are randomly rewarded as you play the game which will reward you random item while challenges will give you set reward just like they did in previous call duty games

  • Larryweber03

    i still have that eerie feeling that zombies will show up before the game is released

  • How many prestiges are there?
    I hope theres many more in this CALL OF DUTY TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST
