Call of Duty developers Treyarch have announced the starting and ending dates for the first Double Weapon XP event in Black Ops 4.

In a tweet put out on November 15, Treyarch revealed that 2X Weapon XP is coming his weekend, with the event slated to start Friday, November 15 at 10 AM PT and last until 10 AM PT on Monday, November 19.

The promo event is for both Multiplayer and Zombies, and will be live across all platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

In addition, the tweet also revealed that a “very special” 2XP event is coming next week, although no other details about it are available at this time.

“We’re prepping for a very special 2XP event next week,” the tweet reads. “And starting tomorrow, it’s time to unlock those Operator Mods and Kill Counters even faster.”

As the tweet alludes to, with 2X Weapons XP players can level up their weapons faster and unlock attachments sooner.

Once maxed out, the Operator Mods for weapons that have them are unlocked, and players can also prestige their guns to activate a special Kill Counter.

This is the third promo event that Black Ops 4 has had since its release on October 12, with the other two being 2XP and 2X Tiers Boost weekends respectively.

As for the 2XP event scheduled for next week, time will tell what Treyarch have in store for the Call of Duty community, and by calling it “very special,” they are setting the expectation that it will be a level up (no pun intended) from what we’ve been given previously.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
