A Double XP weekend for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops will take place this weekend.

Not only is this an opportunity for gamers to increase their XP before the arrival of Modern Warfare 3in two weeks time.

As Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, explained: “Every time you prestige in MW3, you’ll receive a prestige token. Use it to 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.

He continues: “As a bonus, everyone who’s prestiged in MW1 and 2, World at War and Black Ops will get bonus tokens instantly at launch, allowing them to start unlocking stuff instantly ahead of everyone else.
