Working your way through Prestige in a Call of Duty title is one of the ultimate challenges. Players have grinded their way up the ladder, hitting max rank, and then have to make a tough choice: to stay at the maximum level and keep all of their weapons and unlocks, or to reset their progress in exchange for some small bonuses.
Thanks to the same chap who leaked all of this Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer info, we now have a good idea of what the game’s Prestige mode will entail.
Do note that this is all based on the PC beta files, so some details may have changed once the full release is out.
Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey teased the maximum rank of 55 and 10 levels of Prestige back in June:
