Zombies... When Black Ops II was introduced, there were no longer the original zombies that we all knew of. Zombies were transformed into a whole new game. First off, it is now possible to prestige in zombies, ( The game gives you no choice, it happens by itself ). The prestige system is very complicated, and the devs aren't answering any questions, so i will break it down for you.
There are currently 5 prestiges
1: One Bone - You start out with this prestige, if you are good at zombies you should reach the next prestige in about one game.
2: Two Bones - This is the second prestige, it is very common throughout people who have tried out zombies, but do not play it often. It is still very easy to level up to the next prestige.
3: Skull - This prestige is the one of the two most common prestiges in zombies due to the fact that there is a glitch* where a person freezes at a prestige. At this prestige, ranking up becomes harder then usual, you will be required to use every factor** to level up quickly.
4: Skull w/ Glowing Eyes - The second most common prestige due to the glitch*. It becomes hard to level up from this prestige. Leveling up from this prestige requires significant gameplay. You will be stuck at this prestige for quite a bit. One Suggestion to level up: Play Play Play!!
5: Skull w/ Dagger in Background - Very uncommon prestige. People who have played zombies for a significant amount of time will have this prestige emblem. This is currently the last prestige, although there are rumors that there are other prestiges such as two daggers in the background, two daggers + glowing eyes, etc. I Personally cannot approve these "rumors" as i have never seen anybody with this prestige emble
Ranking up through prestiges
There are several factors you need to consider, each one is important, and there is no significant difference between them:
3: Headshots - gain more EXP for kills
5: Perks Drank
6: Doors Opened
8: Traveled Miles
9: Downs - These will decrease your EXP
10: Deaths - These will decrease your EXP as well.
EXP cannot be directly viewed, but can be estimated by the player through the above stats.I
Are those the only things that level you up in zombies?
Nope, those are some of the factors. One thing people do not take into consideration is SCORE. For example:
Player 1: 1000 kills, 100 knife kills
Player 2: 1000 kills, 0 knife kills
For this example, assume that these 2 players have the same stats (such as perks drank, giblets, etc.). Altough knife kills aren't an emblem in zombies, and don't have a direct effect on EXP, they have an effect on your score. Player 1 obviously has more score because of the knifing he/she has done. This player will have more EXP than the other player, and will possible have a bigger prestige
The glitch switches two prestiges. For example, you may notice that you went straight from one bone to a skull. This glitch switched the two bones/skull emblems, so the next time you prestige, it will appear as if you got deranked. Skipping prestiges is just a glitch, it switches the order you get the emblems at.
