Modern Warfare 3 Prestige Levels 16 to 20 Added to PC, Soon for PS3 and Xbox 360

Yesterday, Modern Warfare 3 players on PC were treated to a long-overdue DLC bundle, Collection 1. The DLC brought along a patch that added community playlists among other changes. The patch notes haven’t been made public at the time of writing. However, one obvious change is the addition of prestige levels 16 through 20.

A few months ago, Infinity Ward added prestige levels 11-15 to the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 along with prestige emblems for levels 16 to 20, which lead us to believe that another 5 prestige levels were on the cards. PS3 and Xbox 360 received the first extra 400 ranks within a few weeks after PC.

Currently, the highest prestige level on consoles is 15. Now that another five prestige levels were added to PC, we expect consoles to follow suit soon as it was the case with prestige levels 11 to 15.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

    If you reach level 16-20 you have some serious problems and you need to get out in the sun more!

      it’s not even that. its the people that cheated to get where they are so quickly. There may be less than 1% of people who play MW3 that REALLY got that high legitimately. CoD is just for boasting stats anymore, not skill (evident from the token hacks to the quick scoping. abusing an auto-aim feature is NOT skillful. You’re already half way making the game play itself)

        I disagree. I am 15th, I have been for ages. I never once boosted or cheated – MW3 is reaaaallly easy to level and prestige on.

        I’m not even maxed out on Black Ops yet and my playing time is longer on there, I think I’m 13th prestige.

        I agree, I have added this kid on my psn when playing mw3. I look at how many days he has play, and he only play 9 days and he 15th prestige.. I’m only 5th prestige and i’m already getting bored.

          Use the specialist strike package with Hardline and play Domination and aggressively cap flags. You’ll easily get 10s of k XP per game if it is one of the busier maps.

          • therapiist

            hmm, I would have to give that a try i haven’t touch specialist yet

          you really made it to fifth? i’m on third and got bored to all quick scopers. iw should remove aim assist (=quick scope), because it would increase gaming experience for everyone

    5 more prestiges! By the looks of this, there’s going to be more prestige levels in the near future.

      Blaine retarded…. how can you post tons of junk in the CoD news? Don’t you have BF3 to play or something else??

  • tellmeadeshina

    The latest patch is live on PS3, we shall assume for DLC support. I can confirm it does NOT contain the extra prestiges.

    Legit prestige players are actually good. They spent days playing this game and it has become second nature for them to dominate. There is also additional incentive for ranking prestiges because of the prestige token that you can use to unlock early access to weapons and perks and others.
    But for the hardcore or those in the fast lane, it’s definitely a plus to add more prestiges else those XP points are a waste.

  • Eberton Konieczny Sobreira

    It’s being hard to reach level 10…hahaha I’m going to stop at 10 because from 11 to 20 there will be the same prestige icons. I see that activision/sledgehammer didn’t care much about painting new icons for the prestiges.

    Far too late to add these now!!! I am 15th – lvl 80 and will NOT be prestiging again!!

    I do not see the point in going above 10 (unless you need prestige tokens) as you get NO titles/emblems for your achievements and LOSE all your Gold Guns etc.

    It is VERY easy to lvl up without boosting – Specialist kill streak, play objectively and especially on Drop Zone (massive amounts of XP – Xp for kills, satying in drop zone killstreak rewards and destroying them too – 10000+ XP per game (minimum) not including challenge bonuses etc.

    But there is no advantage etc to going above l0 as you will have unlocked everything! I am staying at 15th and just going to work on the remaining few guns I need/want to get GOLD

    I’m on xbox and I agree it’s really easy to rank up in MW3. I’ve been 15th for a while now and even hit the prestige button a couple time just for sh*ts and giggs. (It starts you over at 15th and gives you another token) Still waiting for 16-20 to be release so I can race to 20th and sit pretty for a while before Blops 2 comes out. :D
