The Best things to buy in the prestige shop on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 ( MW3 )

Intro

Here i will talk about the things in the prestige shop, and what the best thing for you to buy is. I will go through and give my personal opinion on the best thing that will work for you.

Also upon request I have created a Twitter account for Johnrr's Hubs which can be found here https://twitter.com/Johnrr631992

Also.. I am on the Xbox Live network, for those of you who continue to ask, my gamer tag is Agent Johnr. I tend to not add new members from here unless I play with you first, and I only play hardcore domination, or Infected, but either way if you see me on, feel free to send a shout out.

The prestige shop

Here is the list of things you will be able to buy in the prestige shop.

Extra Custom Class
Double XP (two hours in-game time)
Double Weapon XP
Regular Package (Callsign Title and Emblem)
Unlock Gear (Choose one item that's unlocked permanently)
Hardened Package
Veteran Package
Reset All Stats (resets everything, including your Prestige Level)


Description, and what to buy

So first off is the extra custom class. This can be helpful, or a waste. People like me who have played all the Call of Duties got at least 4 tokens. Some may have spent them or have been saving them. I know some who spent them all on extra custom classes, but personally i think this is a waste. I do not see the point in having more than 2 custom classes, let alone 5, so i do not need more than that. I use the same gun until i upgrade it then i move on to the next. So unless you really enjoy using more than 5 different set ups, i do not suggest wasting your tokens on this.

Two hours double XP. This is good and bad. I think this is good because this will help you rank up faster, and unlock better items. Also i Just bought one of these so that i could hurry up and get through another prestige. This really helps you boost your stats up a bit so you can get that level you really wanted, or just to help you get more levels done in that time you play. I don't suggesting using all your tokens on this at once, but one here and there won't hurt you.

Double weapon XP. This for me does not really make sense. Unless you really need an attachment or weapon upgrade, spending a prestige token is a waste on this. You will not get any true benefits from it, and it will not help you in the long run. Spend your money on the double xp instead, adn over time you will get the upgrade to your guns that you need.

Regular package. This is also a waste. You will get a title and emblem. The title is "far superior" and emblem is from COD 4. I only suggest this to those who are trying to unlock every single title and emblem, but other than that this is useless, and i suggest spending it on double xp instead.

Unlock gear. This is the best thing that you can spend your prestige tokens on. You will enable this after your first prestige, and i know i saved all the token i could for this. Anything you unlock will stay with you for all of your prestige's, so i highly suggest that you save your tokens for this.

Hardened pack. You will unlock the " superior being" title, and the emblem from 10th prestige on MW2. Once again unless you are going for the all title and emblems, this is useless especially having to wait until 5th prestige to use this. i would suggest unlocking more gear, or more double xp to get you further in that prestige. By the time you are 5th prestige you should be good, and getting that double xp will really help you in the long run.

Veteran package. This will be more titles and emblems after the 10th prestige. at this point if you want to spend a token on this, it may not be a bad thing since you will already have the enough gear by now, and no more to buy. This will be the best thing for you to buy in your 10th prestige since you are also in no rush to be through the level.

reset all stats. This to me seemed good until i found out it also took your prestige away. This takes away from it being good. If it just reset you KD ratio i would say go for it, but having to go through all that work again, does not seem worth it to me, so at this point i would boast your newly achieved 10th prestige.

So overall i would say go with the gear. This is the best thing that will get you far throughout the levels. I think this would make you happiest having that special edge at a level 1 in a new prestige, and once you get to 10 i would say at that point get your veteran package, but the rest really are not worth it.

And you are 10th already?

I am not 10th prestige. I just know that it resets everything, and that does include your prestige back to 1. SO you will regain prestige tokens as you go through them again, but if you put 200 hours into getting to 10th prestige to me it seems a waste to reset it. I know from past COD's when i got the highest prestige i kinda stopped playing, but in no way did i want to restart from 1.

Yeah, it sounds lame.

Il pass on the reset stats now lol. I just thought it was things like KD and whatnot.

Good read also BTW

thank you, and ya initially i had hoped for just K/D since that would eliminate a lot of camping, but i guess we're not that lucky, they'll always be campers, and always a catch.

I personally don't have a problem with camping.

I do it my self from time to time.

Just different play styles for different people.

But, the people that do it every game, for 10 straight games are the ones that annoy the living crap out of me.

hit me up on XBL sometime, if that is your method of play.

You don't have a problem with it but 99% of everyone else does. Stop camping!


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 5 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

So i approved this comment just to prove a point. First off everyone has and does camp at some point so right now you sound like a moron. In search and destroy on defense, if your aren't camping, then you are ruining your teams chance at winning, and hurting your team. IF you are on a 11 killstreak and need 1 more for an AC-130/Pavelow, you are really gonna tell me that you are going to run around and risk losing that... NO you will camp that last kill. SO camping is not all bad, but i will agree with John Kolka, that if your not helping your team like camping on team death match, or camping on headquarters then ya your hurting your team.. But even still, IF you aren't able to kill a camper after you die once by him... Then you are the one lacking skill and should go back to basic training and learn how to use those grenades, and tactics to get those campers out.

About the camping, the longest ive ever camped was roughly 30s. I killed a guy, reloaded, called in a Care package, got up and left. That's my definition of camping :)

jordanramos1997 4 years ago

5 classes is good bro you can have a quickscoping class which i use more than anything else you can have you best class.And the best thing you can buy is from the (unlock gear)section.and theres no such thing as camping its actually called tactically waiting for some to come im pretty sure he/she is not having a bomb fire marshmellows and everything else

Hey do you have psn as well or just xbl John my Xbox killed itself with redring so I went to ps3


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

As of now, I am only on the Xbox network, but I am going to buy a PS3 this summer to broaden some of the games I want to write on that are only available on there.. But as of now, I am only writing on COD franchise, and only on XBox..


jagr06(youtube name) 4 years ago

Yea the only time I get annoyed by campers is if they are prone waiting for someone to pass by only to kill them or if they're snipers on some place scoping people and stay longer than 30s. Other than that I'd be a fool to claim I never camped before as it's a tactic much like using Ghost perk on Black Ops but mostly I just try to have fun killing people. My K-D is awful, 0.722 so yea I wish i was better K-D per match playing my style but in the end I know there's better players out there who has played CoD for years or shooters in general so I accept i'm meh but i still have fun most of the time.

i'm mostly spending my tokens on unlocking gear as I personally feel custom classes are pointless given you have 5 custom already available at level 4 or something. I just don't know which perk or weapon to unlock after prestiging 3 times as I already unlocked type 95 and ak47 which feels weird in comparison to black Ops.


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

I would go with the FAD.. It is a fun gun to use and the first I unlocked. My K/D is not great any more because I cannot stand playing multiplayer and have no need to. I play survival mode, and if not I play other games. Call of Duty just gets to repetitive for me especially since I have reached max prestige on COD 4, WAW, MW2.. Black ops i decided not to, and MW3 i decided not to because I got to sick of the game. Now I mainly play community playlists when I go on, or write about the game on here. Either way, thanks for commenting, and if you have any questions feel free to ask/.

My definition of camping:

Kill the camper and lay down on his corpse waiting for him to come back. Think about the map Mission. At the bottom of the ramp at the bottom of the hill. Some people just camp on that mattress. I don't understand why people pay $60 to sit in a corner.

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Each package gives 1 title, and 1 emblem, the title for prestige 10 I may get when I have an extra token lying around.

Can u unlock a gun camo with a prestige token


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

No you cannot.. And if you could, you would still not be able to do the gold camo.


Wraith 4 years ago

Well, about the extra custom classes...

If you're like me, you want to have a custom class for every situation (usually includes 1 class per primary weapon category, and maybe a few others). For example, on first prestige, I had a dedicated class for assault rifle, SMG, LMG, shotgun, and sniper rifle. I sometimes put the riot shield on the shotgun class though, since I really do NOT like shotguns. My first extra custom class became a dedicated riot shield one, and my second I just use for marksman-style gameplay (where I usually use the M16 (in hardcore), the Type-95 (rarely used), or the MK14), dedicated for medium to long range, but the primary can also be used (somewhat well) for close to medium range.

I'm probably going to get the other 3 custom classes, but I'll just use those for screw around/trolling classes. :D


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

Wraith, I have this discussion.. Almost DAILY with my team. Most of my team would agree with you that having 10 classes set up is completely necessary so every game we play they can have the perfect gun.

In my opinion, how many guns do I need. I mean, in all honesty I have 1 tube class for if we are getting tubed continously.. 1 class with a submachine gun usually MP7 to run and gun. 1 class with a shotgun to play around with.. And 1 standard assault rifle class with a silencer.

The fifth is just a random set up class.

Now given we only play either hardcore S&D, or Domination, BUT I only need to change my kill streaks for either game mode which is not a problem to me. I honestly don't see the point in 10 classes, only because I usually use 1 of 2! classes when we play. Either way it is completely your opinion, and 95% of my team thinks I am crazy only having 5 classes, but that's just how I play hahaha.


Wraith 4 years ago

Well, another part of it is that I occasionally have those games where I can't seem to hit ANYTHING, so I'll switch from my assault rifle or sniper class to an SMG or shotgun class. Then my LMG class is dedicated (almost completely) to anti-air support work. I usually use my riot shield class to help cap flags in domination (particularly B flag on Arkaden XD) or to just screw around. Then other times I'll be working towards challenges on a specific weapon, then once I finish that, I switch to a class with a more preferred weapon.

In any case, like you said, it is a matter of preference and what gametypes you play. I play TDM (regular (almost all the time) and HC, occasionally), S&D (not very often though) , and a mix of pretty much everything (except really free-for-all...). If you're good enough with 1 or 2 guns, just stick with them.

(Well, the biggest part is that I'm kind of a completionist... so my last 2 prestige tokens were used on the Regular and Hardened Packages...)


Wraith 4 years ago

Oh, if you tend to use recon (regular or pro) use a token on the XM25. I always use it on a shotgun class and it helps a HELL of a lot to get recon pro faster. (Plus, who DOESN'T love having a LOT of explosives? :D)


Wraith 4 years ago

And since I'm pretty bad with a shotgun, it helps get specialist kill streaks. My typical shotgun class is USAS, XM25, semtex, flash grenades, Recon (or Sleight of Hand), Hardline, Steady Aim, with specialist package: Sleight of Hand (or Recon), Scavenger, and Blast Shield. If I don't have Recon anywhere in the setup, my specialist package runs Scavenger, Blast Shield, and either Dead Silence or Assassin.

okay so i am 2nd prestige level 32 and my kd is around 0.555 iv been playing a lot lately so im presiging quickley and i want to know what your favorite personal gun to unlock is and if like when u get double xp does it count if your not playing too or just when you are playing? Thank you please respond!


Johnrr631992 profile image

Johnrr631992 4 years ago from Tampa, Florida Author

When you choose double XP, it only goes down for in game play. So when you are physically running around shooting in game.

Also my first and usually my most used unlock when I prestige is the FAD. It is good, and I personally enjoy using assault rifles.


Wraith 4 years ago

:DDDDD

Another suggestion, depending on your play style. Get the RPG-7. I did, and I had a HELL of a time with it. SO MUCH FUN!!!! I started using it with a shotgun class (KSG with grip, RPG, semtex, flashes/stuns, sleight of hand pro, quickdraw pro, and pretty much anything but steady aim (for me, at least)), and 3 matches after i unlocked it, I got a triple kill on Dome. O.O'

I'll be honest, I only decided to try it after watching a bunch of KYR SP33DY's videos... but it is SOOOO worth it. XD
