In the previous Black Ops, a new Prestige Mode was introduced, which is available to players who have reached the maximum rank in multilayer. Players who choose for Prestige Mode are sent back to rank one with all unlocks and challenges reset. In return, the players are awarded with a new rank logo.
This does not seem to be the case in the upcoming Black Ops 2 title. According to a few tweets made by David Vonderhaar, the game’s design director, players will be able to keep their weapon progress when going Prestige.
Just got this bug from QA. “Weapon levels are given after unlocking a gun that was leveled up on a past level progression.
That’s what we call NAB. Not a bug. If you Prestige and unlock the gun, you’ll pick up right where you left off. 😛
If something has been a certain way a long time, the assumption when it doesn’t work the way it has in the past is that it is a bug.
Well, that’s changing the whole system. We’ll have to wait for an official confirmation on this, and that will be soon since the game launches in the next month.
