Black Ops 3 gives special rewards to Black Ops 2, Ghosts, and AW players

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is getting its own customer loyalty program. Activision and Treyarch announced today that Black Ops 3 players who reached certain multiplayer levels in previous Call of Duty games will be rewarded with special bonuses right out of the gate, including a special weapon camo for the particularly Prestigious.

You'll receive the same rewards whether you played Black Ops 2, Ghosts, or Advanced Warfare. If you reached level 10 in any of those games, you'll get a special Calling Card. Players who hit level 31 will also get two unique reticles, and players who Prestiged will get a special weapon camo to boot. The camo pattern integrates the Prestige logos from the previous games, making for a nice little trophy for your old triumphs.

You'll be eligible for the Loyalty rewards no matter what system you played the game(s) on; just make sure you link your Xbox Live, PSN, and/or Steam accounts to your Call of Duty account by November 5 at 9 pm PDT. The rewards will only be redeemable on PC, PS4, and Xbox One - PS3 and Xbox 360 won't get the Black Ops 3 campaign, either.

If you're looking to continue your legacy of multiplayer excellence, make sure you reference our handy list of every Black Ops 3 Specialist confirmed so far.
