In order to access the rewards available at the Prestige Shop, players will have to earn Prestige Keys first. Players will receive their first Prestige Key at Level 1, and another one every 50 Season Levels throughout each season. There are a total of 1000 levels, so you can earn up to 20 Prestige Keys each season.

As for the Prestige Icons, players will be able to unlock these only after they have reached the rank of Prestige Master in a season. In addition to this, Prestige Icons include a Sticker and an Emblem as well. However, note that equipping Legacy Prestige Icons requires the rank of Prestige Master, as we said before.
