A new wave of double XP (opens in new tab) is coming to both Call of Duty: Warzone and Black Ops – Cold War later this week. On top of doubled experience earned toward player levels, weapon XP and battle pass XP will also get the same boost. So if you're still working through all 100 tiers of the Season 2 battle pass or need to level a new weapon, this weekend is the time to grind.
Double XP is kicking off on Friday, March 26 at 10AM PDT and will run through the entire weekend, wrapping up on Monday, March 29 at 10AM PDT.
Get ready for next week's mid-season update with 2XP, 2WXP, and 2X Battle Pass XP all weekend long, starting at 10AM PT Friday, March 26! pic.twitter.com/cbmrFkhtYgMarch 23, 2021
Activision is running the promotion to build excitement ahead of next week's mid-season update for Cold War, which is expected to add the existing Sanitorium Fireteam map (opens in new tab) to Outbreak Zombies mode. On the Warzone front, zombies continue to bounce around locations on a regular basis. Next week's update isn't likely to see any drastic changes to the current mode lineup or the Warzone bunkers (opens in new tab).
Players are still anticipating an eventual climax to Verdansk's zombie outbreak closer to the end of the season, which seems to be building up to a brand new map (opens in new tab) themed around Cold War's locales. Leaked voice lines that surfaced a few weeks ago suggest that a zombie-centric Warzone event mode that tasks players with "saving" Verdansk could be part of the season finale.
