Black Ops Cold War Prestige System: Seasonal, Master Ranks

We’ve finally got the full details on the progression system for Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch has finally announced the details on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s progression system.

As part of the first announcement on November 5 with Warzone’s unified progression details, Treyarch revealed a ‘new Prestige’ system is coming to the game.

In a detailed blog post on the Treyarch site, the studio has now unveiled further details on exactly what this “new Prestige” system is.

The system features Seasonal Prestige ranks, Prestige Master Ranks, and more combined together for an ultimate experience. This new progression path will be available in Black Ops Cold War, Warzone, and Modern Warfare.

Here’s the details from Treyarch:

As always, part of that launch day experience is starting the player progression journey from level 1 to 55 to unlock new Create-a-Class content. During the Beta, we showed players a slice of what to expect up to level 40. Today, we’re here to go into the full details behind our deepest Prestige system yet in Black Ops Cold War.

THE EVOLUTION OF PRESTIGE

We’ve heard from countless community members who live for the “grind,” putting in the time and effort to earn unique Prestige Icons with each new milestone and showing off their Prestige Level to the rest of the world. We know the thrill of chasing the coveted title of Prestige Master, and the bragging rights that come along with it with each new game.

We’ve also seen a significant portion of players – including veterans of the Black Ops series who’ve been with us for a long time – who often choose not to Prestige because they don’t want to lose access to the Create-a-Class content that they worked so hard to unlock by reaching level 55. Plus, with post-launch Seasons now delivering their own leveling paths in Warzone, we’ve heard from players who want to see their progress continue across Seasons in even more meaningful ways.

With all of this feedback in mind, our designers set out to create a new progression system that builds upon all the elements that players have come to love about Prestige, with some exciting new advancements:

  • Earn progress toward more Prestige Levels than ever before without losing any of the content you’ve already acquired.
  • The best of both worlds: there’s always a new goal to pursue andyour progress toward Prestige keeps growing across Seasons.
  • Each new Season offers more Prestige milestones, new seasonal challenges to unlock, and more rewards to earn.

We call this new system Seasonal Prestige, and it starts with the launch of Black Ops Cold War. Here’s everything you need to know.

SEASONAL PRESTIGE: OUR DEEPEST PROGRESSION YET

Starting on Day One in Black Ops Cold War, players will begin the traditional progression path from Military Rank 1 to 55 to unlock new weapons, Perks, Wildcards, Scorestreaks, Field Upgrades, equipment, and more… and that’s just the beginning. Beyond this point, your Seasonal Prestige journey begins at Season Level 1.

After completing Military Ranks at Level 55, you’ll enter the Seasonal Leveling progression path and automatically earn your first Prestige at Season Level 1, keeping all of the Create-a-Class content you’ve unlocked already. During the Pre-Season period between launch and the beginning of Season One, you’ll have the opportunity to reach up to three Prestiges, as well as a Weapon Blueprint at Season Level 50:

  • Prestige 1 at Season Level 1
  • Prestige 2 and Weapon Blueprint at Season Level 50
  • Prestige 3 at Season Level 100

Then, starting with Season One in December, your level will reset with each new Season and your progress will resume from the highest Prestige you achieved in the previous Season. Each Season will offer four additional Prestiges to achieve across the first 200 levels, plus a new Weapon Blueprint to earn at level 50:

  • New Prestige and Weapon Blueprint at Season Level 50
  • New Prestige at Season Level 100
  • New Prestige at Season Level 150
  • New Prestige at Season Level 200

This means you can earn up to three Prestiges before Season One, and up to four Prestiges each Season after that for a total of 25+ Prestiges across all Seasons. You’ll always earn progress toward the Prestige that comes after your current one, and you’ll be able to catch up to the latest available Prestige if you didn’t reach it during the previous Season.

SHOW OFF YOUR MASTERY

If you reach level 200 in any Season, you’ll also achieve the title of Prestige Master for that Season. Your Prestige Level color will change to signify your Prestige Master status, and you’ll gain the ability to personalize your Prestige Icon with Legacy Prestige Icons from previous Call of Duty games that you’ve unlocked (more details on that below).

The journey doesn’t stop there if you want to keep climbing. Once you reach Prestige Master in a Season, you can continue to level up all the way to level 1000 every Season, with milestone rewards to earn at every 50 levels along the way.

With the Seasonal Prestige system, you’ll always have a single, continuous progression path across all Seasons, with more Prestige rewards to earn than ever before.

So, how does this compare to the traditional Prestige system in previous games? To summarize:

  • 25+ Prestige Levels to conquer across all Seasons (including the period between launch and Season One), instead of only 10 Prestiges to earn.
  • Six Prestige Master titles to earn by reaching level 200 in each Season, rather than only one opportunity throughout the entire game.
  • 1000 levels to climb in each Season, for when Prestige Master isn’t enough of a challenge.
  • Milestone rewards to earn at every 50 Season Levels.
  • For the first time, keep all of your Create-a-Class content after you Prestige.

SEASON CHALLENGES

Also beginning in Season One, new Season Challenges will provide even more ways to earn rewards throughout each Season. These will offer two collections of 20 Calling Cards per Season in Black Ops Cold War (20 for Multiplayer and 20 for Zombies), with new Challenges ungated in both collections at every 10 levels up to level 200.

Once a Season Challenge is ungated, it may be progressed and completed to earn its related Calling Card. After a player earns all Calling Cards in a collection, they will receive an animated Season Master Calling Card as a reward. Collect ‘em all!

PRESTIGING IS KEY

In addition to unlocking unique Prestige Icons with each new Prestige Level, you’ll also earn Prestige Keys as milestone rewards at every 50 Season Levels. At the new Prestige Shop, you can use Prestige Keys to unlock Legacy Prestige Icons from previous games, which can be equipped if you’ve achieved the title of Prestige Master in that Season.

The Prestige Shop will become available in Season One for players who have entered Prestige and earned their first Prestige Key. Prestige Shop content can only be unlocked with Prestige Keys, which are earned by playing the game. Once you unlock the Prestige Shop, it will be available from that point on – and with 1000 levels available per Season, you can reach up to 20 milestones each Season.

Milestone rewards can also include Battle Pass Tier Skips to unlock more Battle Pass system content for use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. And speaking of Warzone, we’ve got more good news…

A NEW GLOBAL LEVELING SYSTEM

Best of all, this new player progression system will expand beyond Black Ops Cold War later this year. Starting with Season One in December, Seasonal Prestige will become the new leveling journey across Warzone and Modern Warfare, with all players starting on this new progression path without losing any previously earned content.

Players will also be able to unlock new content for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone through the Battle Pass system whether they’re playing Black Ops Cold WarWarzone, or Modern Warfare. For more intel on how progression will work across all three games and all the ways Black Ops Cold War will integrate into the future of Warzone, visit the Call of Duty Blog.

The new weapons are free for all players and do not require a purchase of the premium Battle Pass. They unlock at Battle Pass levels 15 and 31 respectively.

All 100 Season 2 Battle Pass Tiers

Here’s the rundown of all the new content in the battle pass for Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 2.

Tiers 1 – 5

For purchasing the pass, we’ll immediately be rewarded with Naga’s “Viper” skin and Park’s “Survivor” skin.

Tiers 15 – 23

At tier 19 there is a quite brutal finishing move unlocked called “Tactical Roll”

Tiers 24 – 32

How to unlock the FARA 83 Assault Rifle in Black Ops Cold War Season 2

Find out how you can wield the blistering new FARA 83 Assault Rifle in Black Ops Cold War Season 2 with this handy guide.

Black Ops Cold War Season 2 is set to hit the ground running with a myriad of new content, including the new FARA 83 Assault Rifle. Our quick guide will show you how to unlock it.

The launch of a new season is always an exciting prospect with new maps looking to become the new fan favorite and new weapons trying to become the dominating meta. Speaking of new weapons, Black Ops Cold War Season 2 is no different as the latest season of CoD introduces some new tools to shake things up.

One of the latest firearms added to the game is the FARA 83 Assault Rifle. Based on the real-life Galil AR, the weapon has most recently been seen in Modern Warfare and Warzone. Now it’s the turn of Black Ops Cold War players to try out this impressive gun to use in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 2.

Unlocking the FARA 83 in Black Ops Cold War Season 2

During the course of Season 2, we expect to see new additions require special steps and requirements to make them available.

Season 1 was no stranger to this with weapons such as the menacing Streetsweeper Shotgun and the swift, slicing Wakizashi Sword both demanding different goals be fulfilled.

To gain access to the FARA 83 Assault Rifle, Treyarch is thankfully not going to make you complete the same task in 15 separate matches or anything remotely that strenuous.

In order for you to unlock the FARA 83, you’ll very simply need to reach Tier 15 of the Battle Pass. Doing so will immediately redeem the FARA 83 for yourself as it’s one of the free tiers in the game’s paid Battle Pass.

Treyarch and Activision have usually tried to avoid pay-to-win situations and always make new weapons available for all players so that none are locked out and creating an unfair advantage.

This was the case of the Groza and the MAC-10 in Black Ops Cold War Season 1. That is absolutely the case here for the FARA 83 as well.

How to unlock the LC10 SMG in Black Ops Cold War Season 2

To get your hands on the all-around beast that is the LC10 SMG in Black Ops Cold War Season 2, follow this simple guide to unlock it.

The compact LC10 SMG is a powerful shredder in Black Ops Cold War, and you can get your hands on this new Season 2 addition by using our easy-to-follow guide.

Black Ops Cold War already boasts some of the finest weaponry ever seen in a Call of Duty game with absolute monsters like the Krig-6, the AK-74u, the FFAR, and more.

Season 1 hasn’t had its meta controlled by one or two weapons, with the game seeing a healthy spread of guns being used. Even after the later additions of the Groza and the MAC-10, there still wasn’t any one gun that people immediately defaulted to gain an advantage.

Unlock your own LC10 to use in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 2, and see if it can compete with the likes of the devastating MP5 or the furious Bullfrog.

Unlocking the LC10 SMG in Black Ops Cold War Season 2

People are always keen to try out new toys in a game like Call of Duty, it’s what makes seasonal updates so exciting and refreshing.

The LC10 SMG is one of four new weapons that have accompanied Treyarch’s massive Season 2 update, and it could be the most desirable of the lot.

To find out if the LC10 is the one for you, you’ll very simply need to reach Tier 31 of the Battle Pass. No K/D ruining challenges are required to unlock the LC10, you just need to keep playing Black Ops Cold War Season 2 naturally, and it will eventually unlock one as one of the free Tiers in the Battle Pass.

There are no worries here about paid Battle Pass users having access to superior firepower that other people won’t have, thankfully.

Hopefully, the LC10 helps you to tear up some games and become an absolute force in Black Ops Cold War Season 2.
