Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 heralds the first real multiplayer season in a few days. Among other things, this brings new maps and Warzone 2, but also a new prestige system and some changes to the Battle Pass. So if you’ve already reached rank 55: Don’t worry, you’ll finally be able to continue leveling up soon!
CoD Modern Warfare 2: That changes with the prestige ranks and in the Battle Pass
What’s the matter? CoD MW2 has been out for a few weeks, but fans still have to do without a Battle Pass or prestige ranks. This ensures that the first frequent players will soon run out of camo unlocks and their character level has long stagnated at 55. But rescue is at hand (via: Call of Duty Blog).
Prestige ranks no longer reset per season
The new prestige system As usual, we make sure that you can continue to level up after you have reached the maximum level of 55. You’ll reset to 1, get a badge, and start the grind over.
What’s new? It used to be that Prestige ranks were tied to Seasons. At the end of a season, the levels were reset. That shouldn’t happen anymore, the prestige system remains seasonal. At the same time, this means that you can continue leveling up after Season 1 is over.
There are 5 different prestige ranks:
- At level 56 unlocking her Prestige 1- This gives you new rewards like an emblem and additional challenges, upon completion of which you get an exclusive Calling Card.
- prestigious 2 is available at level 100
- prestigious 3 you reach it at level 150
- prestigious 4 at level 200 and
- prestigious 5 is unlocked at level 250 and represents the preliminary upper limit within Season 1.
Here’s what the emblems look like for each prestige tier:
The Modern Warfare 2 Battle Pass works a bit like Fortnite
The new Battle Pass system in CoD Modern Warfare 2 no longer relies on the linear design of its predecessors, but on a kind of map. It is divided into several sectors and you have the choice of whether you prefer to unlock a new sector or the items it contains.
This is in it: There should be at least 20 sectors in total per season. Each of these sectors contains five different items. So you get a little more freedom of choice and the whole thing works less one-dimensional.
However, the distinction still remains that there is a paid premium part of the Battle Pass and a free part. Activision plans to reveal more details about the new Battle Pass system next week.
