Another weekend of Double XP is headed to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Unlike the Double XP for Call of Duty?in late March, this four-day bash appears to be exclusive to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. However, there is a lot in store for fans to do in the multiplayer game.
Season 3 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and?Warzone is right around the corner, but fun can be had in the meantime. Recently the Crossbow was added to Black Ops Cold War, as was a new 6v6 map (Miami Strike), a large multi-team map (Golova), and a small-scale map (Mansion). Taking advantage of some Double XP with new content is a good deal, and many will want to progress as much as possible before Season 3 begins.

Treyarch just revealed that a four-day Double XP weekend is set to begin on April 8, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. PT in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The announcement came in a tweet, not in the weekly briefing (as the last Double XP weekend did), so details are not as substantial this time around. However, the start of the Double XP is just a few days away.

As far as the tweet is concerned, the Double XP does not appear to be for other Call of Duty games, which means no Warzone, which could soon be obliterated by a nuke and given?a new map.?Additionally, there is no clarification if this Double XP is for standard experience,?weapon XP, and/or Battle Pass XP. It certainly could be that the Double XP will be all-encompassing, but normally the announcement makes it a more clear. The Double XP weekend will last through April 12, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
Another important thing to note is that Call of Duty has given PlayStation users an additional Double XP day during these weekends in the past. The tweet does not provide that information, but it could prove to be true, and the Double XP could kick off on April 7, 2021 for PlayStation users?instead. The extra day?would be nice, and it?could also be a decent win for PlayStation users in a week?where?Xbox Game Pass received a major victory with MLB The Show 21.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
