Unlocking Prestige in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will no longer set your progress back to zero.
Unlocking Prestige Mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will no longer set your progress back to zero, according to a series of tweets from the game's design director.
"Just got this bug from QA. ‘Weapon levels are given after unlocking a gun that was leveled up on a past level progression,'" tweeted David Vonderhaar.
"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."
In previous Call of Duty titles, unlocking Prestige Mode would cause players to lose any unlocked weapons, perks, and camouflages. Vonderhaar commented on the change, noting, "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."
Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 2 is set to release on November 13th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
