Christmas is coming early this year, as Black Ops Cold War offers a range of Double XP periods set around the Holiday season.
The first Black Ops Cold War season is now live, and players are busy grinding away in-game. But with so many new Tiers to get through, it would help to have some assistance.
Thankfully, Treyarch is offering players a boost this year, with a helping of Double XP periods coming from today onwards. This is sure to be helpful when it comes to unlocking all of Black Ops Cold War's Season 1's new weapons.
If you want to level up your Cold War Season 1 Battle Pass fast, here's when to expect the bonus XP drops:
Upcoming Black Ops Cold War 2XP Events in December 2020
Firstly, as yet another PlayStation exclusive, PS4 and PS5 fans can enjoy a 24-hour Double XP window starting from today. At 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, PlayStation users can earn Double XP in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
Then, from 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET from December 18 - 21, all players can earn Double XP and weapon XP across all Multiplayer modes.
There will be a short period of regular XP following this boost, and then it's right back into the 2XP action.
From 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET pm December 22 - 28, players will receive twice as much Battle Pass XP. Confusingly, Treyarch is making December 22 - 25 Double XP for just Black Ops Cold War.
From December 25 - 28 however, players can enjoy the 2XP in Warzone too.
Free Access Week for Black Ops Cold War
Black Ops Cold War will also be made free-to-play from December 17 - 24 too. Players can hop into the action at no cost and enjoy the Christmas Double XP in Black Ops Cold War right away.
Then, should they choose, fans can purchase Cold War and keep all their progress and unlocks from the free trial. This is sure to keep player counts exceedingly high this holiday season.
What's more, a recent patch for Black Ops Cold War nerfs the game's most OP weapons. Hopefully, this means that the game is currently more balanced than ever.
If you're looking to complete this new Battle Pass before the start of Black Ops Cold War Season 2, this Double XP Christmas period could be just what you need.
However, some users are reporting a large lag spike in Black Ops Cold War Season 1. Hopefully, Treyarch is working to resolve this issue before the Double XP period begins for most players.
