It’s a given these days that for most people, the main draw in Call of Duty games are its multiplayer component, and how it constantly rewards players. For a lot of players, hitting “Prestige” rank is a yearly ritual, but those racing to do that in Call of Duty: WWII might want to think twice before doing so.
Over o Reddit, multiple users have started threads where they’ve claimed that triggering Prestige in COD: WWII has messed with how they earn and redeem Contracts, and more.
If you can’t read that, Reddit user BiggieSmallsNY says, “PSA: Don’t prestige. If you prestige your HQ will be bugged and you won’t be able to complete/take on any new orders. Activision is also ignoring this issue on twitter/forums.”
User Qishy even made video showing how Orders and such are inaccessible after hitting his first Prestige.
FinalFooty details the errors and issues he has encountered after Prestiging, which you can read about below.
Console: PS4 Pro
So I prestiged today the first time and since then my whole game broke.. (directly after prestiging, didn’t play any private custom matches, didn’t even enter the menu)
- I get the HQ objectives shown on top left and can’t complete them.. these are same ones I had when I first started the game at Level 1..
- All(!!) running contracts from the Major got reset.. if I try to equip new ones it shows that I equipped them but they don’t equip.. I can re-equip them infinite times.. doing these challenges ingame do NOT count as well, so it’s not just an UI bug..
- My armory credits get deducted at the quartermaster but the contracts don’t get equipped as well..
- I can’t collect my armory credits from the postman anymore..
I restarted the game multiple times and this didn’t help..
Please fix this asap!!!!!!!!!!
