Call of Duty developers Treyarch have announced the start and end dates for the first Double Tier Boost event in the Black Ops 4 Multiplayer

In a tweet put out on November 6, Treyarch revealed that the 2X Tier Boost will take place over this upcoming weekend, starting on Friday, November at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET to Monday, November 12 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

As a result of this promo weekend, all players will be able to level up their Black Market tier at a rate twice as fast as the usual.

Furthermore, this promo event will also be beneficial for Zombies players, as there will also be 2X Nebelium Plasma available starting and ending at the same dates and times as the Multiplayer promo.

This announcement comes as part of the major game update released on November 6, for which the patch notes will be posted once announced by Treyarch.

This is the first time that Treyarch have offered a faster way to progress in the Operation First Strike tiers stream other than by purchasing CoD Points.

With Operation First Strike having over 200 tiers, players had been asking for Treyarch to offer a boost, especially since it will only be available until the end of December. 

Players would do well to take advantage of this huge promo event, especially since many have found that it can take a relatively long time to level up tiers without spending money. 

This 2X Tiers Boost will likely be the first of many of its kind, especially since there will be more tier streams added to the game’s Black Market after Operation First Strike ends.

Best Warzone kills against cheaters exploiting the Stim glitch

Taking matters into their own hands, some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s bravest players have, quite literally, gone out of their way to punish cheating exploiters who abuse the notorious Stim glitch.

As most Warzone fans have become familiar with by now, there is an unlimited Stim Shot glitch that pops into existence, gets patched out, and then returns every once in a while. The bug allows you to use an infinite amount of Stim Shots, enabling players to remain in the gas indefinitely and secure easy wins while those who play fairly die to the final circles.

Unfortunately, as time passes, more and more exploiters have become aware of the glitch and prone to abusing it. Fortunately, more and more players with competitive integrity have become aware of those exploiters and prone to exacting justice by punishing them.

While few things are more satisfying than a high-kill Warzone victory, one such thing is the cathartic sensation of a cheater being killed and therefore robbed of their illegitimate win. Highlighted by one of Warzone’s very best, Liam ‘Jukeyz’ James, here are the best kills against Stim glitch exploiters.

Unwilling to be denied their 100-kill victory, Jukeyz and his team got set up with self-revives, gas masks, and a UAV to go seek out and eliminate the exploiter in their lobby. Driving directly into the toxic gas, Jukeyz is able to hop out (as his driver is downed by the green cloud) and delete the prone cheater.

And Jukeyz isn’t alone in obliterating these exploiters. Reddit’s ‘thebigeasy31’ decimated the hubris of one such exploiter, who brashly thought they could start Stim glitching earlier in the game with a Most Wanted contact on his head. Instead, bigeasy gave him a bullet to the head.

And last, but certainly not least, Reddit’s ‘Millertime166’ took it upon themself to pull off a one-man vigilante act by seeking out a Stim glitcher on Rebirth Island. Heading into the gas, copping a Gas Mask, and getting into a vehicle, Millertime used their last remaining HP to kill off a silly cheater who was hidden behind a wall.

While the Stim glitch was supposed to have been removed during the January 13 patch, some believe it persists, albeit in a more limited fashion. Nevertheless, most expect it could possibly make a return at some point.

If it does come back, these players prove that the game’s developers are not the only ones who can counteract cheaters. Like those who killed off exploiters who were abusing the Promenade truck glitch, Verdansk’s finest have begun carrying out their own brand of justice.
