When you reach the 80th level and go on to Prestige in Modern Warfare 3 – up to 10 max – you’ll be rewarded with a token that you get to spend in the new Prestige Shop. You can save up your tokens when you Prestige, or spend them on any one of a number of Prestige Rewards. There are eight Prestige Rewards to choose from in the shop, including your regular ‘extra custom class’ slot, and a small bucket load of new stuff; double XP for 2 hours, double weapon XP, regular package, unlock gear – which allows you to take one weapon with you through to the next Prestige, hardened package, veteran package and reset all stats.
Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling briefs us on Modern Warfare 3′s Prestige Shop in the video below, but fails to explain what some of the less obvious rewards are, like the regular, hardened and veteran packages. Guess we’ll have to wait until shortly after launch for that info (this post will be updated as soon as the details are confirmed.) Bowling does reveal that those who prestiged in Black Ops, Modern Warfare 2, World at War or CoD 4 will be gifted a Prestige Token, though. Handy!
Also, for the first time in the franchises history, there will be a double XP weekend across multiple Call of Duty games. Both Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops will get DXP on the weekend of October 27th to give those who need it a leg-up.
