I thought once you got to level 55 on CoD4's online mode, you had to make some kind of choice.  All I got was a stinkin' pimped out Desert Eagle.  What gives?

after you get to 55, I imagine the first time you did, ....after you finish the the rest of points for 55, you have the option of going prestige, for 10 more times...gold cross 55 is highest.

you have to go to the barracks menu and select prestige mode.  FYI you lose all your guns and perks.

If you play on PC, all your level/gun unlock information is stored client side.  Very easily manipulated and you can instantly unlock all guns and be level 55.  I have the Golden AK.

XBox or PC?

There is no prestige on the PC...

Right, no prestige mode on the PC.  Get world at war, which does have PC prestige.

So wtf is so great about prestige? Do you get something for it, or is it just "hey look at me" bullshit?

It's an excuse to keep pwning noobs.  It also changes your rank icon on the scoreboard, so there's a "look at me, noobs" aspect.  In WAW, it also unlocks an extra custom class slot, for whatever that's worth.

I was a gold cross 55 on COD4.  No way I'm doing it again on COD5.

-p.

That's all it is, huh?

I'm actually thinking about going back and playing GRAW2 more.  Its aggravating to land a hit on someone with a .50 and have them take off running.  5 seconds later, their health is back to normal like it never even happened.

are you kidding me?  more custom classes are DEFINITELY worth it.  i could easily use 10 custom setups, that's why i'll prestige in WaW.

as for doing prestige in cod4: most people do it because they find themselves totally destroying people, and they want to keep it interesting.  (i, on the other hand, did it because of a $200 bet, which i'm about to win.)

Wimp...I just finished my last challenges for the Gold Uzi, and now have all the gold guns...I rock the gold deagle with them, too

Finish the Challenge levels with all weapons to get golden versions of the UZI (CQB), AK47 (assault), Dragunov (sniper), M60 (LMG) and M1014 (shotgun)
Link Posted: 11/21/2008 4:09:48 PM EDT
Yeah I dont think I'll be happy until I finish all the challenges..all that is left, though is Hot Potato, How The?, Invincible and the "Win so many of this gametype"...
Link Posted: 11/21/2008 4:43:39 PM EDT
I'll settle for a golden M-14.  How go I get one?
Link Posted: 11/21/2008 5:21:41 PM EDT
Not available...the only gold guns are AK-47, UZI, M60E4, Dragunov and W1200...

Ugh... I gotta say this whole Prestige mode seems kinda anti-climactic.  I'm going to go back to iron sights just so I can have a special symbol by my name?
