Michael Condrey has confirmed on Twitter today that after each prestige, you will be able to select one item that you will want to have permanently unlocked, similar to MW3.

Condrey already confirmed earlier that Advanced Warfare will feature 50 levels per each prestige, with a total of 15 prestiges.

    Good for people who want to prestige and use their favourite item throughout the next one.

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    Isn’t that how prestige tokens worked though? What’s the difference?


      In MW3 prestige tokens was used in the prestige shop to buy stuff like:

      Extra custom class (up to 5 extra classes for a total of 10 max)

      Double XP (2 hours in-game time)

      Double weapon XP (2 hours in-game time)

      Regular Package (Callsign Title and Emblem available to those with an extra token lying around.)[2] Title is “Far Superior,” Emblem is the gold cross (10th prestige) from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

      Unlock Gear (can be weapons, equipment, perks, deathstreaks, available at 1st Prestige, also they will be carried on through future prestige levels. Unlocked weapons will be reset to weapon level 1 upon prestiging. All unlocked attachments and camouflages are lost in this process, except winter camo)

      Hardened Package (Callsign Titles and Emblems, available after
      5th Prestige.) Title is “Supreme Being”, Emblem is the 10th prestige
      skull coin from MW2 that was unattainable in MW2.

      Veteran Package (Callsign Titles and Emblems, available after 10th Prestige)

      Reset All Stats (Available at 20th Prestige); As the name
      implies, it resets all of your multiplayer stats including leaderboard
      stats, titles, emblems, but it does not reset your gametype leaderboard

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I meant BO2 prestige tokens, lol. The person asked if the prestige tokens will work like BO2, and Condrey said not exactly, but then went on to explain exactly how they worked in BO2. That’s why I was just curious what the difference was, if anyone knew.

        • yoyoyoy

          Im thinking that Condrey thinks prestige tokens meant the reset, extra CaC, and the refund (plus the extra item). This system only allows you to unlock the item. Idk tho just guessing

        • Volt

          I guess he means you can’t restart from Prestige 0, Level 1, or get a extra Create-A-Class slot, etc.


    I loved the prestige shop in MW3, Quad XP weekends was great.

    I miss the maps Hardhat & Mission.

  • Gump

    Nothing bad about that.

  • ccrows

    I’m cool with this just as long as WE DON’T HAVE TO LEVEL UP EVERY GUN FROM SCRATCH like we had to in MW3 again, cuz that sucked.

    Hopefully it’s like BO2, where you can keep your attachments unless you prestige your weapon. Otherwise I’m only gonna be using a handful of weapons for each prestige…

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      As long as I keep my camos …Seriously it was annoying as fuck do have to repeat all those headshots to get th.e last camo again (MW2/MW3).

      • ccrows

        (I think I’m reading your comment wrong) But MW3 wasn’t about getting headshots for camos.

        Getting camos (and attachments) was that long f***ing grind to level 30 or 31 for EVERY weapon that I’m hoping to avoid…

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          Yea but didn t you need to do a certain amount of headshots to reach lvl 31 (gold) ?

          • ccrows

            Not for MW3, it was that long grind for kills (didn’t matter about heatshots), and EVERY gun you had to start over for camo and attachments.

            BO2 on the other hand saved all of that, unless you prestiged your gun, but you still kept the camos…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            My bad then.And yes the BO2 prestige system was the best the older ones were frustrating and the Ghosts one was too easy (It was just buying the things you like and playing the game normally while switching characters.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            MW3’s system was fine. It was probably the best in the series, too bad the game was bad.

            One thing out of the very little things BO2 did right.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        They’re just camos lol.

        • Samuel Fogle

          But incredibly annoying to have to work to get again.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            True. I’d hate going for Gold or Diamond again, I feel the pain in that.

    • Daniel

      I loved weapon level reseting

  • Seven

    What about challenges and camos?????

    • Justin MD

      And the rest of the prestige emblems!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Yeah, I’d rather hear about challenges (but not camos, I don’t care).

  • Wonderful! Even more great bloody news from Condrey ^^ Wonder if there’ll be anythin’ like prestige master from BO2… I would absolutely love that 😛

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Meh Prestige Master wasn’t a very big deal, it just proved who were the tryhards in the lobby.

      • Samuel Fogle

        having a 1.18 k/d and a .50 w/l makes me a try hard? hmm, never knew that.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          It also means that you have experience in the game (Prestige Master). When I see Prestige Masters in my lobbies, they’re always tryhards.

          • Super029something

            how dare they try in a game

          • I always thought that was stupid. So I actually tried and beat your team and now I get called a try-hard? Is that supposed to be a insult of some sort?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            How dare they use OP shit like a bunch of cocksuckers? You’re such a moron.

          • Super029something

            >Implying that you have too be using over powered weapons to be trying.

            You’re a fucking idiot.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You’re the fucking idiot. Black Ops 2 in general is a heavily biased game. All tryhards use the 3 Critical perks and overpowered LMGs. You must not have the game. Seriously, get out.

          • Super029something

            Once again you’re implying that you have to be using certain weapons/perks too be trying. I could be using a LMG, Sniper, Ballistic Knife, MSMC, etc. and I could still be “TRYING HARD”

            With each comment you look even more stupid than the last…. just stop, you’re embarrassing yourself.

            Hey! I know! Why don’t you use the same bullshit excuse you used last time too get out of the argument


          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            A try hard is what it suggests; a person who tries hard to do their best. Obviously you don’t want to be playing against those people because it’s not fun, thus, my criticism of that term is completely 100% logical and reasonable.

            How am I stupid when I’m more intelligent than you?

            Hey! I know! How about you shut the fuck up and stop replying to me? You’re a Neanderthal, don’t reply to me again. As for that screencap, that was immaturity within itself, you hypocritical moron.

          • Super029something

            What the fuck.

            You were trying so hard to sound smart that you forgot to make any fucking sense at all.

            Not once did you criticize the term ‘Try hard’, also, you still don’t seem to understand that everybody that is playing the game is TRYING to have fun. EVERYBODY that is playing the game is TRYING to do something.

            And is trying to do your best in a game a bad thing? Am I suppose too not try? Why the fuck wouldn’t I try? It’s idiotic not too try.

            And how does showing you a picture of something you said make me HYPOCRITICAL? LMFAO, I swear you dont even know the meaning of half the words you use mate.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            And you’re a troll.

            I don’t sound smart, I’m confident enough that I AM smart, you just spew the word “stupid” around for no reason, maybe you’re the one acting smart, but not BEING smart.

            Apparently you don’t know what the definition of a “tryhard” is. I didn’t say “TRY”, I said “TryHARD”, there is a difference. It’s what the fucking word suggests. I stand by what I said, it’s not fun playing against people playing their absolute best. If I wanted to play against people like that, then I’d play competitive and be bored out of my fucking mind. But sometimes the term “tryhard” isn’t that simple in Call of Duty, when I say tryhard, I mean people who use the most overpowered things in a game to forcefully to well in an unskillful and broken manner, like kids using Snipers.

            It’s okay to try, but trying hard is annoying and that makes online frustrating and a terrible experience overall.

            Are you fucking serious? You obviously didn’t know what I said. You replied to me in that picture saying that I was immature, when you’re acting immature, yourself. That makes you hypocritical. And I didn’t dodge your stupid so-called “arguments”, I simply didn’t want to reply to you anymore because I didn’t feel like arguing in that point in time.

          • Super029something

            your definition of try hard is fucking retarded.

            Using an LMG or a Sniper or any other weapons you consider over powered doesnt make you a “TRYHARD” TRYING HARD MAKES YOU A FUCKING TRYHARD YOU IMBECILE.

            Whenever I play pubs I have to put up with little dickheads like you who cant enjoy the game unless they’re up against a bunch of brain dead retards that are easy as fuck too beat.

            “Zomg fking tryhard you jumped when u shot at [email protected]!!”
            Just get the fuck over it and let people play whichever way they enjoy playing.

            And really buddy? You just didn’t feel like arguing at that time, or is it that you came to the realization that you didn’t have an argument anymore. You accepted defeat, and moved on like a good little faggot.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m the imbecile? Yeah, okay, then, keep on trolling. I destroyed you and you have to refer to insults! LOL you’re a sad, pathetic human being.

            “Enjoy the game” you can’t enjoy a CoD MP game period because it’s been terrible since World at War. I have every right to complain.

            NO, I will not “get the fuck over it” quit making excuses, you’re dodging every argument I make. “The way they enjoy playing” what they “enjoy” to do is annoying and breaks the game.

            Listen here you fucking piece of shit, either quit fanboying and making excuses, or get the fuck out. This comments section is a much better place without you. I wasn’t “defeated” because I’m arguing with you now, you dumb shit. Get out.

          • Super029something

            LOL, I have to REFER to insults? Your stupidity is quite amazing, how did I “REFER” to insults? Once again you’re proving that you don’t know the definition of half the words you use.
            (Also if you look back you can see that you insulted me first by calling me a moron.)

            If cod has been terrible since World of War then why the fuck are you here? if you don’t like COD go somewhere else you moron.

            Once again your stupidity is showing, I didn’t doge any argument, I fucking rebuttal’d you idiot.

            HMM, Who’s the comment section on a website about CALL OF DUTY better without; The person who actually enjoy’s Call of Duty (ME) or the person who hasnt enjoyed Call Of Duty since World At War and bitches about how they don’t like it because people ‘tryhard’?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You have no right to downgrade anyone’s intelligence.

            I’m here for Advanced Warfare news and speaking with the CoD community. The comments section is for opinions. Positive or negative feedback, it’s all the same. If people can’t take criticism, then that’s their own fault. Like you.

            You didn’t have a single rebuttal, that’s the problem.

            You haven’t played the CoDs since World at War, then. You enjoy it? Fine, you’re a fanboy, which makes you even worse.

          • Super029something

            I have no right to downgrade somebody’s intelligence? Mate, you have pretty much proven to me that you arnt very intelligent. I mean seriously, who doesnt know the definition of ‘refer’? Thats a pretty basic word m8.

            I seriously don’t get why care about AW news, from what you’ve said it seems pretty obvious that you wont enjoy it.

            Another word you clearly don’t know the meaning of, every time I reply to you it’s a rebuttal.

            How does enjoying cod make me a fanboy? Seriously, please explain this too me. I also enjoy Bioshock, am I a Bioshock fanboy?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I’m more intelligent than you, that’s for sure. I DO know the definition of “refer”.

            Fuck yourself troll.

          • Super029something

            Oh really? Please explain to me how I had to “refer” to insults then.

            Oh my!! It looks like Mr. Intelligent doesn’t have any more arguments!! :^)

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You’ll stop being weak-minded some day, hopefully, probably never.

  • Rooster

    Im with the no prestige gang. Never have, never will.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Yeah I’ve thought about not prestiging multiple times, especially on a game like CoD, where it’s extremely stressful. I don’t want to use shitty classes on level 1-4 against a bunch of degenerates. But I like prestiging for the satisfaction, and it’s kind of pointless to be levelling up/gaining points when you aren’t prestiging.

      • Samuel Fogle

        That is the prime reason I prestige. Just gives me something to work on in the game.

  • TheShadowReaper

    now that’s neat. they the keep good stuff that BO2 brought instead of making them worse, which is what Ghosts did.

    • ccrows

      Except they are coping MW3 instead of BO2 in this case…

      • TheShadowReaper

        did MW3 had tokens? sry, i forgot about that.

        • Daniel

          No, I do not believe MW3 had unlock tokens.

          • Yeah they were the first with prestige tokens

        • JuicyJuice

          I liked MW3 tokens better, cause when I unlocked everything I wanted I used it for the x2 XP

      • Zach

        Bo2 had the same thing where you could permamently unlock something.

      • Guest

        They aren’t copying mw3 cuz they helped make it

    • i♥COD

      Yeah MW3s idea, so glad AW are using the best parts of both games.

  • Stefan Lang

    Hoping it’s worth prestiging in this game. BO2 had nothing more but calling cards you get. Players should be able to get exclusive exo gear or camos when prestiging.

  • Juses

    Will slegdehammer ever relase details about the pc version? The game comes out in less than 30 days!

    • Freeze

      ikr SO annoying. I will flip if theres no fov slider

    • Keshav Bhat

      I hope so #soon

    • TheShadowReaper

      if there is no FOV slider and anti-alliasing option, things will get messy.

      • Could someone explain to me why PC players NEED a fov sliders but console players wont get it? I’ve played with fov on pc and console, and I’d prefer using it. Is there something I’m missing here or is just that pc players like how it looks/plays…

        • TheShadowReaper

          FOV slider is particularly useful and needed because we are not playing on a 40″ TV screen. most of us have up to 24″ TV/Monitors sat in front of us on our desk and playing a fast paced FPS (especially COD) can cause motion sickness to someone. (and in extreme cases even epilepsy) so that’s why we need a bigger sided FOV instead of a smaller one that the game ships with which caters to console users.

          • I have a 24” too and I sit right in front of it :/. I don’t see a problem with fov sliders coming on consoles

          • TheShadowReaper

            as i told you already, some are motion sick or even epileptic. they need this option in order to game on their desk. and not everyone wants to game on a sofa, i prefer my desk when it comes to gaming and many others would agree with that. but even me that arent motion sick or epileptic want to have this option. the bigger FOV allows for more hours of consecutive gaming as small FOV gets you tired really really fast. its a must have option and whoever ports a game to the PC has to have it included in their game.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      You got unbanned? :O And I have a hunch that it’ll be a console game still. I’d recommend to buy the console version just to be safe.

      • juses finaly fukd a bich

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)


  • I sweat public

    Hopefully there let you reset your stats after a prestige to. I feel like it brings longtivity to multiplayer like black ops 2

  • Dean Cowan

    Why this a big deal? It was fairly obvious that it would happen.

  • KuuGeeL

    Assault rifle or smg that is only few levels before max will me my first permanent unlock, Just like the AK from mw3 which totally sucked.

  • Walter Iego

    Thank you. ‘dis iz gud …

  • LovekillerX

    So is this same idea as in MW3? I never had any prestige in previous titles before except only one in MW2 and that took long to achieve.

    But for the first time I’m thinking if I should start prestiging in Advanced Warfare when it comes out. 🙂

  • The7Reaper

    My first permanent unlock will be the ASM1 that gun looks so awesome mostly the fact that it’s a futurised Tommy Gun which was my favorite gun in World at War

  • Ok good I liked that feature.

  • K.E.M

    Is this Black Ops 2.5 ??

  • SASTrooper

    Dumb qwestion I’m near prestiging again can I pick two or will the one that I unlocked last time carry over with the new one I pick to keep?
