May Black Ops 3 Double XP, Double Weapons XP Details

The first Black Ops 3 Double XP week is here, but there is a major catch. The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Double Double XP offers Double XP and Double Weapons XP to players this week who play in a party of two or more.

Coming off a Double Cryptokey weekend and adding new Black Ops 3 weapons to the mix Treyarch is pushing hard to keep players from drifting to other games like Uncharted 4 with special events and big changes in the May Black Ops 3 update.

Starting on May 10 you will earn Double XP and Double Weapons XP when you play Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on PS4, Xbox One and PC with at least one other person.

The announcement came earlier in the week than usual. Normally we learn about this on Thursday, but you can finally earn Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Double XP during the week. .

That’s part of the Black Ops 3 DLC 2 is out on PS4 and coming to Xbox One and PC next week.

If you prioritize and make smart play decisions this week you will be able to level up your weapons faster — allowing you to win more gunfights. You will also level up your player — unlocking new weapon options, score streaks and perks. You’ll also get unlock tokens faster so that you get access to those items and don’t need to be stingy using unlock tokens.

Whether you have a new Black Ops 3 gun or simply need to level up another gun to Gold Camo, this is an excellent way to take advantage of Double Weapons XP to do so faster. Keep in mind that a headshot only counts as one headshot during Double Weapons XP weekend. Check out the best Black Ops 3 guns for the options you should aim to use the most this weekend.

Verge Map - Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 Remake

Verge Map - Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 Remake

The first new Black Ops 3 DLC 2 map is Verge. This is a remake of Bonsai from World at War, and it is more than a new coat of paint. Below you will see a variety of Verge map gameplay featuring Domination and Uplink game modes.

Treyarch updates the map to use the new movement mechanics. There is a bridge and a lot of verticality in the map that allows players to move around with jumping and wallrunning. You will not see a map that is a carbon copy of Bonsai. Early gameplay videos compare the map to Mad Max and commenters say it has a Borderlands vibe to it.

This takes place in a desolate wasteland set in a post apocalyptic future where two forces fight over water. Most of the action takes place in the middle of the map where a narrow bridge runs. You can see this in the videos above and below where you also see that there are tunnels and water to fight in.

In all the Verge gameplay videos we watched  there were interesting points that led to a lot of kills, as players quickly discovered how to surprise the enemy in spawns and places to camp in the area near the water. 

There are buildings you can go into to hide or to get an overwatch positions and a lot of cool detials inside these hideouts. 

There are a lot of flanking opportunities that will allow you to to get behind the enemy, or you can choose to fight through the center, if you are brave and or foolish enough.
