One extremely dedicated group of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 players become the first to hit Prestige Level 1,000 in Treyarch’s futuristic first-person shooter.
The race to claim the crown for being the first to hit Prestige Level 1,000 in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is now over. According to the first-person shooter’s official subreddit, the members of the DooM clan accomplished the feat last night by taking turns in shifts on one account specifically made for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
As a lot of fans of Treyarch’s release are aware, DooM was one of many groups attempting the achievement, but it was they that came out on top, by having a readily-available roster of rotating players rack up the highest scores in nearly every match during the unofficial run for the title. As it happens, the Black Ops 3 clan used the very same method a couple of months ago in order to hit the Prestige Master rank in just a week.
For the uninitiated, after hitting Master Prestige at level 55 in Black Ops 3, the highest level possible is 1,000. With that being said, the DooM clan already had every perk, weapon, attachment, and scorestreak at their fingertips, so maxing-out completely was surely easier to do with those tools of the trade available. Not to mention, having every Specialist character unlocked must have given them an edge over the competition as well.
While some Black Ops 3 fans may claim that DooM hitting Prestige Level 1,000 with the use of alternating team members is somewhat unfair, it’s still hard to deny the group’s dedication. Nevertheless, legitimately seeing a single gamer make it to the ranking all on their own will definitely be impressive to say the least. And considering the fact that a lot of players’ levels are already over 600, it ought to happen sometime soon.
With Black Ops 3 having topped 2015’s game sales charts, there’s likely hordes of fans looking to hit the achievement of Prestige Level 1,000 all on their lonesome. Taking that into account, though, it only means that the odds of being the next to do so is exceedingly slim. Plus, fulfilling the requirements for such a task will take a considerable amount of time and effort on a single player’s part.
Due to the reality that so many people love the Call of Duty franchise — the overall series’ sales have hit 250 million units sold worldwide — whatever the next release publisher Activision has in store for fans of the FPS will surely have pros and amateurs alike striving to become the first to Prestige in multiplayer, and DooM will likely be a part of the race once more. Of course, after covering practically every era in history so far, there’s no telling which generation developers will set the game in next. Perhaps it’s time for the franchise to return to its roots, and go back to World War II.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
