      • ScOott

        Lol, ermm I been keeping it on the down- lo.. Because I know everyone else has been grinding hard.. I’m ashamed to say I’m only just about to hit prestige 2.. not enough time in the day man..

        • Tuby

          You dont have to be ashamed that you are almost prestige 2. Prestige dont say anything about skill ;). ,because I have had 3 week Holiday when bo 3 comes out I am now just prestige 7. But now I have to work 40 hours per week so cant grind that much anymore. Glad they turn on double XP because I have 2morrow a day of. Cant play that much saterday and sunday because I like to go out with friends and have some beer and perhaps pussy lol

        • Siftblade

          It’s okay dude, I just hit prestige 1 last week and I’m halfway to prestige 2. Just means you’re busy lol. I hit master prestige in BO2 in 2-3 months, but now I actually have important things to do. Prestiging isn’t skill, it’s free time.

  • Jony

    How about a triple xp?????

  • ccrows

    Hopefully at some point they do a double Cryptokey weekend… 🙂

    • RdJokr

      We’re already earning Cryptokeys like nuts though. Double would be nice, but not necessary like 2XP.

      • CoolGuyNo1

        Really? It feels like it takes forever to get keys. Any secret techniques you’d like to share?

        • RdJokr

          You earn more Cryptokeys if you win matches, and you get a bonus for playing matches in one playlist continuously. Also, each mode has a different earning rate for Cryptokeys, with the lowest being Hardpoint, and the highest being Uplink.

          • I usually get 3-5 Cryptokeys for playing Domination. Haven’t played Uplink for sometime, it’s my favorite mode to. How many do you get per match.

        • chris holtman

          Keep on playing the same gamemode and the amount of cryptokeys per game will increase, not sure wether winning games will increase it to but i think it does

        • Kobrah

          Git gud. Nah, just kidding, but the better you play the more you earn. I earn 2-3 (4 max)/game playing mostly Dom and KC. Winning also seems to reward extra 🙂 hope that helped a bit

          Edit: if you leave before the game ends you get none

        • BoogieRobot

          Staying in the same lobby AND gamemode will help earn them faster. I was having a hard time figuring out what was wrong, but I realized I kept backing out right after the game to get food, go to the bathroom, do chores, etc, etc and I wasnt getting that extra bonus from “the same gamemode”. Also, winning matches will help ESPECIALLY if you win them in a row. I cant remember exactly what the multiplier is, but every match you win consecutively will bump up the multiplier a bit (i think its 5-10% extra or so). So all in all, play with friends and use the chat, play kc, dom or uplink, win matches in a row and stay in the same lobby

  • Slothigans

    Anybody know how to unlock the classified gear?

    • ccrows

      Unlock all the challenges for all the specialist characters… (kinda like getting diamond on gun classes)

      • Guywithbrains

        I have always hated diamond challenges and everything related to it.

        “Now use every weapon and do these super annoying and hard challenges and then do the same to your specialists.”


        • ccrows

          I got diamond on all my guns in BO2, never got around to the secondaries.

          As for the specialist challenge that’s driving me the most nuts, it’s the Vision Pulse “double Kill” x2.

          ^ I’m tagging and bagging people, but according to the game I’m still not fast enough… 🙁

          • Guywithbrains

            I can’t wait to try to get those Nomad challenges… double kills with H.I.V.E. and even better after you use your Rejack ability… right…

          • White

            For hive and rejack just go on moshpit chaos and play nuketown its pretty easy. Did the hive challenge in 1 match, ghe rejack one is easy too. Just put an smg e rush to their spawn and let them kill you and the rejack. Hope it helped 🙂 i still have to do battery, ripper, and spectre.

          • ICallUpShotgun

            I did Rejack on hardcore and H.I.V.E on Nuk3town. Glitch was way more frustrating tho. I am doing the hero gears now. I really don’t want to do the Nomad and Prophet one….

          • Stif Meister

            Just wait until you have to get Glitch double kills….”Oh yeah just send me back 15 feet so I have to haul ass towards the enemies I just saw”

          • MG

            If you lay down in an empty room for 25 seconds and wait for someone to run by, activate glitch (it wont transport you anywhere), then kill the enemies when they are focused on something else.

          • Stif Meister

            Thought it moved you to a previous location regardless of time, but I suppose I’ll give that a try.

          • Aceshigh87

            Unless they changed it from the beta you are correct. I haven’t tested it in the release version ht in the beta it wasn’t time based but rather step / distance based. So you could not move for a minute and it’s still going to bring you back X distance from the last time you moved.

          • MG

            Hardcore mode>hide until people run by> V Pulse>vesper to head.

        • Heroes

          Getting Prophet complete was the hardest for me yet. T_T
          So far I have Ruin, Outrider, Prophet, Battery, Seraph and the fire guy. (I forgot his name lol)

          • Kurt Angle


          • ArtisanKnight

            Fucking same. I’ll never use prophet again. Sorry.

        • Kobrah

          If it was easy it wouldn’t be cool or rewarding

      • Slothigans

        Ok thanks

  • Ryumoau

    Always nice to have double XP. Hope we get one during christmas break as well, since new people will be playing then. 🙂

  • Imventing

    why do they do shit like this days before finals week. fuck them.

    • Siftblade

      My finals week is this week. This is more like a reward lol

      • Imventing

        you’re lucky as shit.. my class ends tomorrow then finals from monday and onward… enjoy that cod grind this weekend bruh.

        • Siftblade

          Thanks man, I just finished my last exam. Best of luck to you

    • Bored1234

      I agree

  • Diego Diniz

    Suggestion to my next Permanent UNlock????

    1st – M8A7
    2nd – Reaper Specialist
    3rd – Hardened Sentry Gun
    4th- Argus
    5th – ????????????????????????

    • Greasy Neckbeard


    • YoungMurf

      If you play game modes like S&D I would recommend Dead Silence.

      • w

        dead silence is important in most game modes (unless youre playing against noobies, in that case you can use anything)… It was my second unlock

        • YoungMurf

          Yeah I’m close to prestiging for the second time and it’s gonna be my next permanent unlock. Went for the M8A7 for the first one and kinda regret it. Them footsteps are dang loud son lol.

        • Kobrah

          Can’t decide to unlock DS or the vesper, I’ll have to check what level the vesper is unlocked at

    • lunator100hd .

      None of them.

  • banerising

    I haven’t played as much as I wanted to with so many games out but I like to go back when I can, such a great game. I bought it twice, once for 60 and last weekend for 20. I plan on giving it away, but worth buying twice.

    • YoungMurf

      You’re not wise.

      • banerising

        Why? I said I was gonna give it away.

        • YoungMurf

          Why would you buy the same game twice?

          • banerising

            People do that, for different platforms.

          • YoungMurf

            Nobody does that, ever.

      • Poet Anderson

        Buying a game twice, is not wise,
        Unless it comes, with free fries

  • [EV] BLISS

    Zombies as well right?

    • Drasadex


      • [EV] BLISS
