Black Ops 2 weapon can prestige, Treyarch confirms

Friday, 19th October 2012 09:59 GMT By Dave Cook

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will offer 55 levels and 10 Prestige, but now it’s not just your soldier who can re-spec, now your guns will be able to Prestige too. Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar has taken to Twitter to explain the benefits.

MP1st reports that Vonderhaar himself tweeted to one of the site’s sources, “Did you know that you can Prestige any gun two times?”

In Black Ops 2, weapon XP does not reset whenever a player Prestiges, so the site’s source followed up by asking, “if weapon XP converts to next prestige, will you have to prestige your weapon or will it go back down to 0 or stay at max?”

Vonderhaar replied, ”Stays where it was. Weapon level and weapon prestige level totally independent of your level. Not reset by level prestige.”

    I guess it’s just some peoples cup a tea. Don’t get me wrong i played the hell out of Black Ops. But i prestige’d twice and a quarter and i was done. No way i could have kept going and kept my sanity.

    @1: same here. prestiging is not for me. i think i presiged twice in blops and at the third time i didn´t anymore. i felt like it would only proof that i am a moron ;)

    …but i like what i hear about blops 2. sounds like they are at least trying to innovate a bit. cod works the way it is but new spice here and there is definiteley much needed.
