If you are still scratching your head over the whole Prestige Token incentive for Modern Warfare 3 whilst playing older Call of Duty games, our best advice for you would just be to insert your copy of Black Ops this weekend – Double XP is going live again, but this time it’s going to be worth it.
If you need some brief background on how you’ll be able to collect Prestige Tokens prior to the release of Modern Warfare 3 on November 8th, head to our previous guide here. You’ll can also find out what to spend your Prestige Tokens on, in the Prestige Shop here.
Now then, Infinity Ward has just confirmed that there will be a Double XP weekend going live this Friday, meaning that this is the first good chance to earn a Prestige Token for Modern Warfare 3 if you previously didn’t bother ranking up in mulitplayer – this is going to be pretty rare.
However, if you just bought Black Ops for single player or the zombie mode and are still on a low rank, just spend a good few hours on multiplayer and prestige to ensure that you at least have one token available for usage as soon as you pick up your copy of Modern Warfare on launch day. As we mentioned earlier this week, those of you who are still sitting on rank 55 should prestige and play at least one multiplayer game, for Infinity Ward’s servers to authenticate, ensuring that they remember your status and grant you that lucrative token for MW3.
It’s going to be great for those of you who are on max level without prestiging on older games such as Modern Warfare 2, World at War and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Prestige Tokens are valid here as well, giving a max possibility of four tokens available straight away in Modern Warfare 3. We’re guessing that everyone is going to have at least one via Black Ops, especially with the Double XP weekend coming up this Friday, but the question remains is: Did you keep copies of older Call of Duty games?
How many prestige tokens will you be able to get – the full four?
