If the lure and luster of achieving prestige isn’t enough for you, Activision is going to reward those who achieve the milestone with exclusive in-game backgrounds for Call of Duty: Ghosts – one background from each game. These backgrounds will show other players that you accomplished greatness in Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2.

In total, there are six backgrounds to unlock in Call of Duty: Ghosts based on previous accomplishments. If you played Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2 multiplayer you will unlock two backgrounds. If you have prestiged at least once in Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops 2, you will earn an additional two.

However, those who hit the 10th prestige in Modern Warfare 3 and max prestige in Black Ops 2 will get these exclusive backgrounds – find images in our media gallery.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be released on Nov. 5 for PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U. The title will launch along PS4 and Xbox One.
