Prestige Mode and Icons in Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Above you will see the designs for the prestige emblems for Black Ops 2. The ranking system for Black Ops 2 has been designed to be fun and not requiring a terrible amount of grinding compared to Modern Warfare 3. There are 55 levels and 10 prestiges.
There is one last significant change: if the player manages to reach the maximum level during the 10th and final Prestige, they will reach a special Prestige level called Prestige Master. Once the player becomes a Prestige Master, all weapons, equipment, perks, scorestreaks and wildcards are automatically and permanently unlocked, as the ultimate reward for those who have persevered through all 10 levels of Prestige Mode. However, all camouflages, attachments and calling cards/emblems still need to be unlocked as normal.
