        Custom Classes, challenges, camouflages in-game.
        Character customisation maybe? To a certain extent of course - I don't want LMG guys running around in sniper suits.

            Maybe more call signs? Or golden camo for some weapons?


            Also will prestige mode be available for PC?

              I think the idea of camos would be the best thing, it doesnt affect the gameplay in anyway, other than aesthetics. If the callsigns are back, then obviously more options for them, extra custom class slots too.

              To whoever said about keeping a certain weapon unbalancing the game, it should because the weapon should be balanced with everything else anyways, so it wouldnt really give anyone an advantage if it was balanced..

                Well ive allways thought a cool Prestige feature would be that u get to keep one of ur weapons when u do.


                I've always liked that idea.  The ability to keep only 1 weapon after prestige (something that would normally be unlocked at later ranks). 

                Extra create-a-class slots were huge and Im sure they played a role in what prestige some folks decided to achieve. 

                Posting ideas would help if we knew more background about the game content.  I must admit that I havent been following BO as close as I would like and am not sure what depth (if any) there will be to character customization.   I would think that different character camos, clothing, headgear would be a hit.

                  As many of you may recall, in World at War we added unlocks to the Prestige ranking. That is to say, as you reach certain levels of Prestige, we unlocked more Create a Class "slots" for you.

                  This was in addition to the Prestige Icons that had been in the previous game.

                  We are currently working through a list of Prestige ideas and we ask you to pile on.

                  First, some ground rules:

                  Unlocking items that can give you a slight game play advantange like Create a Class slots is fair game, but don't bother with content suggestions:

                  -upgraded items (my gun is better than your non Prestiged gun)
                  -new content not available in the non Prestige levels (new types of grenades, attachments, or other equipment)

                  We know exactly what percentage of you opt to Prestige. It just doesn't make sense to develop new game content used by a relatively small percentage of you some of the time, or (as would actually be the case) hold back content from the game for such a small percentage of overall players to use a small percentage of the time.

                  As you can imagine, that makes tuning and testing a lot more difficult and the cost vs reward of that type of feature development doesn't come out too favorably. It's "expensive" (using that term generically, not to mean money) to develop and tune content that not many people will ever access. Follow me?

                  The very definition is Prestige does not include the use of the word "exclusive".

                  Someone who has prestige is widely recognized, has distinction or importance.

                  What do we give people who Prestige to further that cause? What do you want to identify you, the Prestige gamer, as having this distinction?

                  Post sticked for 3 days.

                  Optional versions of sights and attachments would be cool. Nothing better, only different.

                  Like, a different type for 4x sight for instance.

                    Vahn, the Community has spoken about Perks and Prestige by your request, but this time it's different. The Community has spoken up about the addition of a Map-Creator, and about numerous gameplay problems. Please check out this threads below to see what we have in-store for you:

                      I heard somewhere that you can customize your character in Black Ops, similar to Halo. Not sure if this is true or not.

                      What if there were 10 different unique visual upgrades that can only be unlocked by prestiging. They wouldn't be in any set order, but every time you prestige you randomly pick one and you can keep it for the rest of your Black Ops career.

                        That's true.

                          I would like the ability to have camo unlocks after prestige like bronze, silver, gold and platinum. You could get a bronze for each weapon in a category like assault rifles, once 200 headshots has been achieved for every weapon in that category. The headshot count wouldn't reset on any weapon (towards these camos only) when prestiging further. I feel this wouldn't unbalance the game or deam prestige as "exclusive", simply because camos are cosmetic and these would take much longer to unlock. Platinum could be unlocked at something like 1000 headshots for every gun in that category.
