Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops Double XP Weekend

Posted on October 26, 2011 AT 06:49am

THE BUZZ: Activision is kicking off a massive double XP weekend in all Call of Duty titles, including Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops.

The reason is Modern Warfare 3′s new Prestige Shop which allows you to spend tokens you earn from prestiging on rewards. As a bonus for every prestige you obtained on previous Call of Duty games you will recive a token on day one, hence the double XP weekend to allow players to gain as many tokens as possible before Modern Warfare 3′s launch in two weeks time.

EGM’s TAKE: This should get fans buzzing about MW3, and get a nice frenzy building up to the launch. We also bet Activision hopes this takes some of the attention away from this week’s Battlefield 3 launch.

What do you think of the Prestige Shop? Leave your thoughts below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
