Best way to use presige tokens?

I am getting ready to presige for the second time and want to know the best way to use my extra token. I am thinking about using it to keep my custom ACR. Is this a good move or is there a better way to spend it? Also, do I need to use it before I accept the green prestige token? As always, thanks for the help.

    "prestige", sorry about the typo.

    It's personal preference really, I used mine for custom classes at the beginning as I'm always tinkering with them. Didn't feel the need to use them on guns as there's always a good gun available from the start. Pretty sure the gun stats reset too so you'd have to rank it up again. As for when to use it I'd advise straight away, you should be able to save it for later but I think there were some reports of them disappearing so better safe than sorry.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    In my opinion the best way to use them is ethier with a custom class the first 2 prestiges and focus on leveling up the M4A1 and the PP90M1 and not unlock a gun that early but after the 3rd and up. It seemed to work really well for myself. Go ahead and try it yourself!

    If you unlock the ACR it will be just that. It will not be customized. I used my tokens towards perks that I used that didn't come around till later in the ranking. Then weapons then custom classes. I stopped at the end of the 9th prestige and had plenty of goodies to finish the 8th and 9th prestiges quickly. I guess it all comes down to what you need/use the most whether it be weapons, perks or classes.

    I have been using mine to unlock things you normally wouldnt unlock until level 70 or after.  For instance, my first one went to a portable radar. The next time I prestige, I will probably use it on Scavenger perk.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    I suggest with your first prestige that you unlock the weapon or perk that is most useful to you.

     

    For me it was the RPG-7, then C4, then the MP7, then Steady Aim ect.

     

    You have to be a little bit clever so you don't waste your token on something you unlock early like the Scar or the PP90M1, which are both excellent weapons but are both easily attainable within the first few hours of a prestige.

     

    Extra custom classes are always useful if you like a variety of weapons or are too lazy to change a class for every new game mode.

     

    I haven't seen the need to unlock a regular or veteran package however, they are call signs that I'll never use and have very little impact on the game.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    I am 1 or 2 games away from the second prestige. If I unlock a create a class and throw the weapons I want in it, will I keep them? Or should I just wait? I definately do not want to waste my red token.

    Use the first 2 tokens to unlock something valuable.

    The next 5 is used for custom classes.

    The last 3 is used for the title and emblems.

    I used it to unlock ACR on my second prestige and Motion Sensor on my third prestige. For the rest of my prestiges, I'll unlock the extra classes, and if i have any tokens left over, i'll get the packets.

    Even if your tenth prestige you can prestige again, you'll get the same prestige symbol and everything. I guess its just there just in case you need another token or your just bored and want to do it again.

    I'm 10th stige now.  This is how I used my 10 tokens:

     

    1. Unlocked MSR

    2. Custom Class

    3. Custom Class

    4. Custom Class

    5. Emblem & Callsign

    6. MP-7

    7. Custom Class

    8. Emblem & Callsign

    9. Custom Class (You will max out at 5 additional custom classes for a total of 10)

    10. Emblem & Callsign

     

    If you are into trying to get everything for the game and like to tinker with different classes I recommend this highly.  Remember you need a total of 8 tokens to get all custom classes and all additional call signs.  I used the other two for my two favorite weapons to prestige with.  Hope this helps

    The only reason l prestiege is for custom classes.

    Question:  the only way to get the extra custom classes is to use a token?  For some reason, I was under the impression that after you got to 10th prestige, they would automatically be unlocked.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    If you're looking to get the most out of your prestige tokens, you'll need to put 8 out of the 10 aside.

     

    5 will go towards create a class, 3 will go torwards callsigns/emblems, which leaves 2 for personal choice. I say this because XP or weapon/equipment unlocks are either pointless or you overlap so you'd earn it anyway when you get to prestige 10.

     

    If you're going to unlock something, make sure it's an extremely late unlock like portable radar or FAD since once you get into a sepcialist grove, you're gonna level up fast. Also note you don't keep the pro/attachment/proficiency of the weapon/equipment/perk, you have reearn it.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    Maybe I am still new at the game, even though I have prestiged twice after being hacked and reset once, but I don't see the point of extra custom classes. If I get tired of using certain weapons or find ones that work better on certain maps, I just change the class I am using the least. I don't see a need for a class for each map because a lot of the weapons I use work fine on many maps. By the way, I used my red token on the ACR, Padiego. Now I am thinking about my second, claymore or C4 are the early front runners. Thoughts? Happy trolling.

    • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

      Portable Radar is a MUST mate! Its a god send in the mad game, I miss it like crazy and im about 25 levels of unlocking it, im at 52 and I think its unlocked at 77

      • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

        It's pretty slow goin' starting from scratch again, huh Beast?  My match bonus points were pitiful in the beginning with all the low level weapons and what not.  I felt like it took me forever to get to 39 to unlock scavenger so I could start using Specialist more productively again.  Then I celebrated a bit at 50 when I got the ACR... I'm kinda diggin' on the gun right now.  I think I'm back up to 68/69, but the MP7 & portable radar will still take some time.

         

        I'm with Teacher on not using the extra custom classes.  Back when I was prestige 4, I never opened up more and was just fine.  I have 3 main classes to rotate through, 1 screw around class, and one Hard Core setup I only use when Arab is around to play with, which has been far too long.

        • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

          I use all 4 with a mixture of my favourite smg at the time, all with diff setups, 2 have ass and 2 have hard, 3 have assault and 1 has specialist, the assault have a mix of cobra/overwatch/pavelow, and uav/cobra/overwatch. And my 5th class I use for a distance gun, acr or scar, with blind eye/assassin and thats my sit back class, that I rarely if ever, use.

           

          Im really missing my mp7 and portable radar Not been on anywhere near as much as id like due to work

        • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

          Thanks Father. I am glad to see I am not the only one that feels that way about custom classes. And I have always thought twice about starting over and losing my gold guns and all the perks but, I guess it is just part of the game like people complaining about getting worked by akimbo FMGs. The only reason I am using those right now is to get my scorpions back so I can rail the FMG abusers and get even with the people that abuse the FMGs as a primary weapon.ok, an error occured while trying to reply to this post so I apologize if it shows up a million times.

  • Re: Best way to use presige tokens?

    Uh, you guys, you know you can prestige AGAIN ONCE YOU"VE REACHED TENTH PRESTIGE just to get another token but you'll stay at ten unless that patch made 5 new prestige levels like on xbox and ps3
