For all of you having troubles getting your CoD: ELiTE Founder status showing up, it seems that as of 1:30 AM MST This morning that it's working. Me and two of my friends have confirmed that it is working. (The title you get is freaking cool ) One thing though, in the ELiTE booklet it says that you get a special camo but I see that nowhere...
Where did you enter the code? on a PC or through the Elite app on Live?
I entered my Elite code from my Hardened edition on the 'Redeem Code' on the Xbox dashboard.
Middle Button>Right twice>Redeem Code>Enter the code on the back of the Elite pamphlet if you got Hardened. If you just got the regular I'm pretty sure you can buy it for $49.99 either from the website or Xbox marketplace.
The ELITE founder emblem and title are different from the other Elite emblem and title. The title is green. If you've gotten the green one then you should have a camo all the way below Gold called Winter. That is the founder camo.
