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.

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.
