I have "prestiged" only once. And then realised, that you can do it again, and again, for no additional abilities apart from more fitout slots, and a gucci logo that indicates you're a "bada$$" (or a masochist in my case).

So, how many times can you prestige ?

There are 15 prestige levels in Black Ops. A full list of what you keep and lose can be seen at the Call of Duty Wikia

Thanks for that. So levelling in prestige is like doing a "super-level". If you can "prestige" 15 times, you have done 750 normal levels, as there are 50 levels between each level of "prestige". – giulio Apr 4 '11 at 3:13
@giulio (1 level + 15 prestiges)*50 = 800 – Curt May 25 '11 at 9:31
@Curt.Yes in total. My original calculation was from starting to "prestige". – giulio May 25 '11 at 23:21
@Curt 814, as you have to reach level 51 to Prestige. – user19085 Jan 28 '12 at 17:44
