If you opened up Black Ops 3 for Christmas, this is what you need to know about the game, including what to do if you run into problems, where to look if you didn’t get the game and need a deal as well as tips to be a better player.

Black Ops 3 is over a month old and there are already players leveling up to Master Prestige and to the new higher levels. Despite some server issues, it is arguably one of the best Call of Duty games to date, and easily the best on the current generation of the Xbox One and PS4.

In the days after Christmas we saw a lot of new players flood the servers and many of them ran into issues and many others received a rough welcome from seasoned players who used the lack of wallrunning and specialist power knowledge to wipe the floor with what many called Christmas Noobs.

Skipping Christmas, But Hoping for Black Ops 3 Double XP New Year Treat

Skipping Christmas, But Hoping for Black Ops 3 Double XP New Year Treat

There is no Christmas Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend, to help you level up faster. Although there is always hope for a New Years Eve Double XP event to roudn out the time off of work and school, nothing is confirmed yet. 

Treyarch offered Double XP on Thanksgiving weekend, but so far there is no mention of Call of Duty Double XP weekend around Christmas that would allow new players to level up faster. With Double XP, you can unlock new weapons, Scorestreaks, specialists and tactical items faster.

Even without a Double Xp weekend, there will be a lot of new players, so you may be able to level up faster simply by taking out other new or inexperienced players. Don't forget to use our Black Ops 3 Guide to learn about wallrunning and other tips.

    We played 3 players in multiplayer split screen once and now it will only allow 2 players. Why can’t the 3rd player be added?

    To improve my playing in multiplayer online i play my nuktown and customize with bots. However when i get ready to chosse my class it will only allow me to use certain weapons sometimes. It has nothing to do with level or anything. But it will allow me to select my class then when game starts i have no weapon
