How to have CoD points when at the beginning of prestige

When you're level 50 and going to prestige, it is almost certain that you'll have loads of CoD points, and therefore you buy all emblems, layers and such, all the things that you don't loose. But those last ones? Keep 10 000 cod points, and you'll be able to start out with 30 000 in the next prestige. Here's how:

1. Be ready to prestige

2. Enter a "High Roller" wager match

3. When the map is locked, prestige, the game has taken the buy-in

4. Be "In the money"

When you're done with the game, you're a prestige level one, but you start out with all the money you won in the wager match Smile

Perks on acensions and a rating for each

Quick revive: On solo, this perk lets you revive yourself and get 2 kl guns whilst down! On multiplayer, it lets you revive people quicker. 10/10 on solo

Juggernaut: This lets you withstand more hits without dying. It cost 2500, but it is definately worth it if you are good at zombies. If not, then it's not worth getting it as you just end up wasting 2500 points. 10/10 if good at zombies.

Speed cola: This awesome perk lets you reload quicker! It's good for all different players, however I am not sure how much it costs (Probably about 2000 points though). 8/10

Stamin-up: This lets you sprint without stopping! Personally, I don't ever get it as when I get surrounded, I shoot instead of run. For those who like legging I from zombies, it will be pretty handy. 5-6/10

PhD f..

Pretty awesome gun.

This gun is an awesome and my second favorite gun, I've been using it online since I was at level 29, now I am at Prestige level 2 level 30, this and the Ballistic Knives are really good together.

Ak74U+Warlord perk+Rapid fire+grip.( epic!!)

I would suggest Hacker (because you'll be running around a lot) and Scavenger.

Trust me this is an awesome gun( not recommended for snipers and stealth players, campers not included)

How to unlock the Zork game.

At the title menu, use your analogue stick to look down at the characters hands. Push L2 & R2 so your character struggles. Continue pushing L2 & R2 until your character breaks free.

Then walk around the room until you find an old computer that has a "press and hold square" prompt.

Once the keyboard appears in the top right hand corner, enter the word ZORK - and press enter.

the ZORK mini-game then pops up on the computer monitor after you're told you've unlocked it. Zork is a texted based RPG game.

All you need to do in Zork is type in the actions you wish to do; ie; "Open door" or "walk to window" just experiment by typing in actions that you feel apply to the scenario the game has given you.

congrats, you've unlocked the ZORK mini game.

How to survive Zombies on 5

Okay then guys, basically, on the middle level, down the stairs, open up the 2 barricades. And now, when the zombies come in, start running around in circles. The zombies will start following you, and because of the speed difference will never catch up with you.

However, because of the layout, then can kind of take shortcuts. So, never ever stop. Turn around sometimes and shoot them, but only for about 3 seconds, and never full our stop moving.

Also, for reasons I do not understand, leave the elevator to the bottom floor on the bottom floor, and spam teleports until you get to the middle floor, and you will not have any gas zombies.

So, don't forget, never stop moving.
