Let the fireworks begin. “Double double XP” is now live in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone for the holiday weekend.
Both regular double XP and double weapon XP will be active through July 6 at 12pm CT, meaning there’s four days worth of CoD grinding ahead for gamers everywhere who are looking to shirk barbecues and bottle rockets for battle royale instead.
Black Ops Cold War players can grind double XP in the new Throwback Moshpit playlist, which features six-vs-six game modes on classic remade maps like Nuketown ’84, Raid, Express, Standoff, and Hijacked. It’s basically one big Black Ops II celebration.
The in-game store is also celebrating Independence Day with the Tracer Pack: Fireworks. The 10-item bundle features Adler decked out in a stars and stripes “Life Guard” operator skin, as well as three legendary weapon blueprints: the “Blasting Star” assault rifle, “Barrage” SMG, and “Firecrackers” pistol. The “Shot Up” finishing move, “Firework” weapon charm, “Sparkler” gesture, “Starry Eyed” emblem, “Spangled Banner” sticker, and “Orchestrator” animated calling card are also included.
Treyarch has been teasing the midseason update for season four, which will include the Mauer der Toten round-based Zombies map. The highly anticipated next chapter in Zombies could be coming sometime in the next couple of weeks, along with the rest of the new content added by Activision.
Enjoy the weekend and the double double XP, Call of Duty gamers.
