For every 50 levels up to 200 in Season 2, you’ll unlock and wear Black Ops Cold War Prestige Icons. Once you have reached Prestige Master, you’ll gain access to the Prestige Shop. From here, you can purchase Calling Cards, Emblems, and Icons with Prestige Keys – you’ll get a new key every 50 levels.

Once these Legacy cosmetics have been purchased, you can equip them directly from the store.

Unfortunately, as players have discovered in Season 2, you won’t be able to wear your purchased Icons at the beginning of Season 3.

As levels are reset for new seasons, you lose your status as Prestige Master and must reach it again to access your purchased Legacy cosmetics.
