The Player Level journey doesn’t stop at Rank 55.
After earning enough Player XP to ascend past Commander within the Military Ranks, you will enter the Prestige Ranks, a Season Level system meant to recognize the community’s most skilled and determined players. This system will be like the one used in Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone over the past year.
Those who get beyond Commander automatically receive their first Prestige — Prestige 1 — and start at Season Level 1. At this point, all your unlocks, including Loadout items, will be kept as you ascend the Prestige Ranks.
During the Preseason, you can reach up to three Prestiges:
- Prestige 1 (Season Level 1)
- Prestige 2 (Season Level 50)
- Prestige 3 (Season Level 100)
Outside of a cool new rank icon beside your name and a higher rank number, reaching each Prestige awards you with a free Battle Pass Tier Skip. In addition, reaching Season Level 50 grants you a new Weapon Blueprint, exclusive to those who reached that point in the Seasonal Prestige System.
When Season One begins in December, your Season Level will reset (but you’ll keep your unlocks) and your progress will resume from the highest Prestige you achieved during the Preseason. Every season offers four additional Prestiges across the first 200 Season Levels, as well as a new Weapon Blueprint at Season Level 50.
Hitting the maximum Prestige of that season — 3 for the Preseason, 7 for Season One, 11 for Season Two, and so on — will award you the title of Prestige Master. Those who do not reach the highest Prestige during a previous season will have a chance to catch up, as players can hit up to Season Level 1000 during a typical season. Any leftover Prestiges will be earned every 50 levels, and for those who already hit the maximum Prestige, they can still go up to Level 1000 to prove their ultimate mastery of that season of Vanguard and Warzone.
Additionally, players who reach Prestige Master will continue their Prestige Master Ribbon progress from the current Black Ops Cold War/Warzone system. Vanguard will add six new Prestige Master Ribbons for players to progress through, in addition to the previous six.
