Emblems are fully customizable, as individual emblem images can be colored, moved, rotated, flipped, resized, and stacked on top of each other. There are shapes ranging from geometric shapes to silhouettes of people and animals. Each playercard can have up to 12 emblem images layered at once. The emblem images and layers will still have to be unlocked, however. Each image, regardless of unlock criteria, also costs 100 CoD Points to purchase. The player will unlock the ability to have their emblem printed onto the weapon of their liking at level 16. All the emblems, layers, and backgrounds the player buys stay with them when they prestige. If one has any CoD points left just before prestiging, it is advisable to buy extra emblems as CoD points will reset after prestiging.
The freedom to design an emblem has caused some controversy due to the designs available, and many offensive, lewd, or otherwise inappropriate emblems have sprung up, ranging from swastikas to likenesses of genitalia and animals fornicating. Treyarch has stated that they control this with bans, temporary and permanent, from using the Emblem Editor, as well as resetting the emblem, including any layer and design purchases. Moreover, all players have the ability to flag down emblems they find offensive.
- There is no emblem and background customizing on the Wii version of the game.
- Players cannot use the "3arc" or "COD" clan tag, nor can they use certain icons or swear words.
- When looking at the emblem editor, the "Classified" weapons will take on what type of gun they are rather than their actual name. An example of this is the "CZ75" would take the name "pistol" and the "G11" would take the name "Assault Rifle" while at the emblem editor.
- For some reason, PC players are not restricted in the clan tags they can pick.
- Players can put their clan tag and emblem on their primary weapon for 1000 each.
