A new July Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend arrives just as Treyarch starts a Black Ops 3 DLC 3 Live Stream to announce new details and possibly show off gameplay. This also arrives just a few days ahead of the Black Ops 3 DLC 3 release date.
You can use the July Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend to get closer to Black Ops 3 Prestige or a new level of Prestige.
With a traditional Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend like this you cannot level up weapons faster, but as you play you will level up your character faster. Whenever you complete a challenge or play a game you will earn twice the amount of XP as you normally would.
Playing Kill Confirmed is one of the fastest game modes to level up faster during a Double XP weekend, but the best bet is to play whichever game mode you are best at.
Watch out for Black Ops 3 problems, as Double XP weekends draw more players to the service and can lead to ABC errors.
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.
