Savvy Call of Duty players have found a genius new way to earn unlimited Double XP and Double Weapon XP tokens in Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5.

Anyone who is a regular player of Modern Warfare and Warzone will know that rather than doing regular Double XP weekends, you can earn extra XP by applying timed tokens, which you can earn through the battle pass or by completing certain challenges.

Now, players have found yet another way to stack unlimited Double XP tokens so that you can level up even faster in Season 5.

Season 5 introduced some major changes to Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Fortunately, this isn’t a glitch or some kind of bug that players can exploit and face potential repercussions from: it’s a feature in the game that is quick and easy to get through and simply requires you to play the new Games of Summer trials.

Games of Summer was introduced in Season 5 with five different timed trials for players to try out and earn either bronze, silver or gold medals based on how fast they complete them.

Obviously, most players will be aiming for gold medals, but to stack up unlimited Double XP tokens you only need to get a bronze in the below trials.

As shown in the video below by RatedLive, here’s how to get Double XP and Double Weapon XP tokens every time you play them:

  1. Load into the Shooting Range (Double Weapon XP) or Marksman Challenge (Double XP) trials.
  2. Earn a bronze medal in either of them, depending on which token you want to earn.
  3. Leave the game and head back to the multiplayer menu to check your token has been earned.
  4. Complete the Games of Summer trial again to earn another token.
  5. Repeat as many times as you like.

The tasks don’t take too long — especially Shooting Range — so it isn’t a massively time-consuming venture, but it depends entirely on how many tokens you want to get.

Obviously, with the Modern Warfare lifecycle starting to slow down as the release of Black Ops Cold War looms, now is the perfect time to get all your weapons leveled up, finish your Damascus grind and try out some new loadouts in Warzone.

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
