Black Ops players will get Double XP this weekend, starting Friday, October 28 from 10.00am PST until Tuesday, November 1 at 10.00am PST. Also, players will unlock a Prestige Token for Modern Warfare 3 and for every Call of Duty game prestiged since the original Modern Warfare.
According to Robert Bowling, with the new Prestige Shop coming to Modern Warfare 3, every time you prestige in the game, you’ll receive a prestige token. Players can then unlock rewards like double XP for a limited time, an extra custom class, or choose one piece of gear from your custom class to keep unlocked from Rank 1 of future prestiges.
Those who have prestiged in Modern Warfare, World at War, Modern Warfare 2 or Black Ops will get tokens to use in MW3 on day one.
The Double XP weekend should help players out with this a bit. Thanks, Voodoo Extreme.
