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.
This comes one week ahead of the PC and Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC 2 release date that will bring new maps and a new zombies experience to the game.
During the new Double Double XP event Black Ops 3 players can level up their characters faster and unlock new weapon attachments faster. By combining these you can level up even faster by unlocking challenges for each weapon that also deliver XP that levels up your character.
You can also use this as a chance to hit the 75 wins contract to unlock a Weapons bribe and 10 rare supply drops.
If you’ve been waiting for a chance to finally hit Black Ops 3 Prestige, or for the opportunity to level up the rest of your Black Ops 3 weapons faster, this is an excellent time.
The party only May Black Ops 3 Double XP week starts on May 10th at 10 AM Pacific, 1 PM Eastern and lasts until May 13th 10 AM Pacific/ 1 PM Eastern.
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.
