The next time you think about glitching to prestige in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, you may want to take a quick look at Treyarch's Security & Enforcement Policy, which the company tweeted shortly after news of a new glitch started to spread among the Black Ops 2 community.
I'm not entirely sure of the process as I tend to level up the fair way, but it's said to involve watching a video on the built-in CoD TV. Doing so will let you instantly rank up to level 55 without the need to mod the game files, the consoles themselves, or hack multiplayer lobbies.
If you do decide to glitch the system, it doesn't look like you'll be able to enjoy your new rank for long. Treyarch has already tweeted: "Noticed a few “level 10” guys ruining the party for everyone…enjoy your new rank while it lasts. Solution (and demotions) incoming."
They then posted a follow-up tweet: "FYI…in the short term, Edited Films and Emblems will be unavailable. Back online as soon as possible."
Looks like they have figured out the source of the problem and are already working on a fix. Honestly though, why would you waste your time glitching? The whole point of repeatedly playing multiplayer is to rank up to Prestige level 10. Why would you cheat through the system and then have nothing to work towards?
