While you may think you’re running into a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare problem as the time you can earn double XP seems to go faster, it’s due to the timing always running once you start.
Here’s a rundown of what you need to know about the 2XP situation for Modern Warfare.

How to use a Modern Warfare 2XP Token?
There is a 2XP sidebar that you can access on your console or PC to open this up.

Once activated, you will see the timer showing you how much time is left.
You can activate multiple tokens at once, but you cannot deactivate them, so only start as many as you have time to use in one sitting. Keep in mind they do not stack.
How Does the 2XP Timer Work?
Infinity Ward made a change to how the system works this year, They outline it as,
“There is a bit of a change to the system this year, as XP Tokens count down in real time whether you’re in a match or not, including the pregame lobby, when you are adjusting your loadout, or even if you exit the game.”
This means when you are in menus, in game lobbies and managing loadouts, the timer will keep going. Even if you quit the game it will keep running.
