How to Prestige in MW3

If you’re familiar with CoD, odds are you’ve hit Prestige before. The endgame rank offers you a unique emblem, and starts the grind over so you can play through all unlocks once again. However, you’ll notice that the Prestige system isn’t available at launch. MW3 uses a Season-based Prestige rank system, similar to MW2.

Prestige will roll out with Season One of MW3. So, you’ll need to wait for Season One which arrives on December 6, 2023. I recommend you reach Rank 55 by then, so you can dive into Prestige from the get-go like me. You’ll automatically enter Prestige by playing and leveling up after the rollout. There are 5 Prestige Ranks you can reach, and 50 levels within each rank.

  • Prestige 1
    • Rank 56-99.
  • Prestige 2
    • Rank 100-149.
  • Prestige 3
    • Rank 150-199.
  • Prestige 4
    • Rank 200-249.
  • Prestige 5
    • Rank 250+.

Each Prestige rank will reward you with a unique emblem so that you can show off your hard work. We expect there to be new challenges once Prestige arrives, so buckle up for a good time. MW2 offered XP, daily challenges, and milestone challenges, and we expect a similar format for MW3. Milestone challenges typically offer cosmetic rewards, and XP. So, there’s plenty to look forward to.

That’s how to Prestige in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies. We’ve got plenty more for you to discover at our MW3 guides hub like the best loadouts and how to level up fast.
