    So Difficult to Prestige now...

    Justin_IRE

      So after the Double Weapon Xp.. I have most of all my favourite guns gold (P90 Gold, Barrett Gold, MK14 Lv 30, PP90M1 lv 30) But with all the work which went into getting them to that level esp. the .50 Cal, Im finding it very hard to press that Prestige button now :S

       

      So taught it a good question, which looks better.. another Prestige Level or gold guns?? esp. now that there are 20 Prestige Levels?

       

      Now I don’t mind what anyone has to say either way, but no one can deny that the MK14 and .50 Cal look awesome in Gold?!

          do whatever you want gold guns dont mean your a better player like some people seem to think and being a high prestige is more about time played than how good you are.

            I was like you. Didnt know what to do, i had 6 gold guns(not that many). Thought sod it, not going any further. After a day the temptation got to much and i hit the prestige button. I have to go to 20 now lol

                Yea, I have a feeling after a few days of watching my XP go nowhere ill prob crumble and start all over again, but after "wasting" a double weekend :S

                 

                Sure we'll see, Im only a casual player so lv 20 Prestige will never happen, ill be happy when I get to 10 then "call" it at that (hopefully)

                Im at 15 and not going anywhere i have too many gold guns and that took too much time to just restart.

                  Never mind the gold guns it's the pro perks I'm gonna miss.

                    I only care to prestige once as I'd rather get my favorite guns gold and just press on.  I hate having to start over more then once, twice at the most.  Just me though

                      Me personally I don't see how players don't prestige or keep playing a lot after completing the highest prestige. I couldn't play hard or how I do wouldn't matter as much to me if all the pts I was getting went to nothing. But that's just me. If you like your gold guns keep them.

                        I love the Gold AK-47. But a color of a gun isn't a factor when it comes to hitting the prestige button. But that's just me.

                         

                        Plus I think the Red is the sexiest color on all weapons. And my my favorite color in general is Blue. HAHA!!

                          Man I am having the same problem and wasted the last dxp by not prestiging.

                           

                          I have I think 17 gold guns including some tough ones to get.  Gold model (never do that again.....ever), MK14, M60, Pecheg, M16 (another grind), PM9.  Not to mention the rest of the LMG's, almost all of the AR's and all but 1 of the smgs plus a couple of snipers.

                           

                          I am on a mission to gold every gun on the game at once and that is keeping me entertained to be honest.  I havnt used a gun that I golded much in 15 prestiges and I just keep having to do them so I figure goling every gun  at the same time would be pretty cool. Plus I think its more challenging to gold every gun then it is to keep prestiging since most people just use the same few guns every match.  With specialist and dxp I can make it back to lvl 60ish before my 2 hours of token dxp wears off.  Thats not near as hard as golding guns like the model, M16 etc.  Thats just my opinion though.

                           

                          I was so disappointed in the emblems from 11-15 and now 15-20 that I regret going passed 10.  I gave up 10 gold guns at 10 and would definately have them all gold by now.  That and they are just going to keep adding them.  I dont see it stopping til BOPS2 comes out.

                            Well,a gold gun doesn't do anything except be a gold gun,I mean its just a camo.If i were you i'd prestige prestige shows other players how good you are at the game basically...so i'd personally pick prestige.

                              • Re: So Difficult to Prestige now...

                                Like already said above, prestige only measures the amount of time one has spent playing the game... not skill. I've got a friend that we all play with a lot, his kdr is around .65... dood sucks, but he's a cool guy and fun to have in the lobby, and he's a 9th prestige.

                                As for the gold camo/prestige question... i've golded numerous weapons throughout my time to 12th prestige, once that lvl 80 is done it's prestige mode time... I find it more enjoyable to continue prestigeing and redoing all of my favorite weapons. To each their own though, it's all about your personal preference.

                                In black ops gold guns meant something. In mw3 any gun can be gold with a few hours of play and some dxp. I complete the attatchment challenges for game xp and move in to another gun. So many times I get guns to level 30 and then move to something else. Problem is when black ops 2 comes out I will stop playing mw3 and never play it again so I will just play to prestige until then. PS I will never hit max prestige, after all my time playing I am only prestige 6 now.

                                  never did like the gold much. autumn, snow, or none.

                                    Its not so much about the gold gun guys.  Its the fact when I see a guy with a gold model I think wow he put in the grind.  Or a guy with a gold M16 you know he doesnt just use his ACR and MP7 for every game.  That shows me more skill in all honesty.  With all of the dxp and the ease of getting perks pro'd prestiging is far from showing someones skill but exactly what many have said its all time played.

                                     

                                    Plus I hit 15/80 long before the new prest. came out so it makes it different.  If i had just hit 15 when the new ones came out ida hit the button no questions asked but having been there for awhile it sucks to give up some of them.  Obviously a gold ACR or gold pp90 isnt a big deal to dump but guns like the model, M16, and all of the LMG's arent the easiest to gold.  Again the color sucks its the time and effort put into the gold that matters.

                                     

                                    I completely agree gold guns in bops meant way more and were harder to get but they were harder to get because prestiging was way harder.  You had to play ctf to get marathon pro, you had to play demo to get flak jacket pro, etc.  This game is cake to prestige on.  Perks are so easy to pro and really the last month has been almost non stop dxp which takes even more away from being a high prestige as everyone is racking up the pts.

                                        I did have a moment yesterday when I saw a guy with a gold gun and said 'wow that is something' and it was a guy with a gold striker. So I killed him and used it.

                                            Haa....thats funny.  I guess to each there own.  For me maybe its more of a protest to IW's sheer laziness with the emblems.  I mean roman numerals with the same emblem for 10 prestiges.  Wow guys you really outdone yourselves there.  Ya better slower down there.

                                             

                                            The "challenge" of golding shitty guns is harder then prestiging and using your acr and mp7 to run through prestiges.  No matter how you dice it.  If prestiging is what gets yer goat though prestige away.  Im sure they will keep adding prestiges.  Hell ya might be prest. 40 when bops comes out.

                                          I don't understand why people "grind" to get gold guns unless you are at the Prestige you plan on stopping at.

                                           

                                           

                                          I'm 17th right now and the only gold guns I've had so far are the ACR and SCAR and that just happened through use.  When I hit 20 - then I'll worry about getting my gold MK46.

                                            gold guns suck, there is nothing special about them.

                                            Ive never had any gold guns and i never will
