2XP promos are a vital part of the multiplayer, Zombies, and battle royale experiences in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Here’s the latest on when the next session of Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and 2x Battle Pass Tier Progressions will take place.

Following the launch of Season One of Black Ops Cold War, both multiplayer and Warzone are under a unified progression system, one that offers four different Prestige ranks and an additional 1,000 levels per season.

Thus, the player-base is constantly asking Activision and Treyarch to activate XP promos to help them level up faster, along with 2X Weapon XP, to really help speed up the process of leveling weapons, which has quite notably been a lot more of a grind with this year’s game.

Luckily, the devs have been quite generous with their XP assistance, offering various boosts and other promos to help players move up the ranks, as well as Double Battle Pass Tier Progression to make those higher-end BP tiers easier to reach.

Here’s everything you need to know about the next 2XP period:

Double XP and Double Weapon XP really help players level up their account and guns in Black Ops Cold War.

Is there Double XP now in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone?

No, the latest promotion for Double XP expired on January 4 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, but there is another one coming soon (see below).

When is the next 2XP and 2x Weapon XP in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone?

On January 12, Treyarch announced that the next XP promo will be Double Weapon XP in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. This boost will apply to Cold War’s multiplayer and Zombies, as well as all of the currently available playlists in Warzone.

This will begin on Jan 15 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET and end on Jan 19 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

While there is no official schedule released beforehand, you should circle most notable US holidays on your calendar since the devs like to make the boosts available when schools are closed for three or more days, as it means that a good chunk of their player-base will have more free time at home to play.

Case in point: the next such holiday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, on January 18, which will be another three-day weekend and with it some Double Weapon XP.

Warzone players who don’t own Black Ops Cold War really benefit from XP boosts since they don’t have too many ways to level up.

As always, we will be announcing every XP and Battle Pass Tier boost promo on Twitter, @DexertoIntel, so make sure to follow us there and check this page periodically to keep up to date and not miss a single session.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies: New Firebase Z details, Tombstone Soda, Scorestreaks

In celebration of 115 day (which is a reference to Element 115 from Zombies lore), Treyarch have revealed some of the first major details about the upcoming Black Ops Cold War Zombies map, Firebase Z.

During the Black Ops Cold War’s mid-season update, Treyarch announced that a new Zombies map, titled Firebase Z, would be coming before the end of the season and confirmed that more details would be coming on 115 day.

Now, that day is here and it’s safe to say that Treyarch have delivered, at least for the time being, confirming exactly how the map connects to the mode’s overall narrative and revealing some new items that players will be able to use while grinding their way through it.

Black Ops Cold War Firebase Z story

Firebase Z will take place in Vietnam and feature new enemies.

According to Treyarch, Firebase Z takes place in a facility called Outpost 25, which is located in the jungles of Vietnam. Set after the events of the first map, Die Maschine, Samantha Maxis has been captured by Omega Group and it’s up to the Requiem team to go and save her, which brings them to Outpost 25.

The developers also confirmed that the map will feature some brand-new enemies and gameplay mechanics, but they failed to go into detail about what exactly they will be. Could we be seeing a new boss zombie similar to the Megaton from Die Maschine? Fans will have to just wait and see.

New Zombies perk and scorestreaks

Tombstone Soda is returning in Black Ops Cold War and it’ll operate a bit differently than it has in the past.

In addition to the narrative details, Treyarch also confirmed some of the new items coming to the game. The first, which was teased a few weeks back, is the Tombstone Soda perk.

For Black Ops Cold War, the aforementioned perk, which originated in Black Ops II, will feature some novel abilities.

While the player has the perk active, they will turn into a “shadow” if they’re downed. In this form, players can use weapons while they attempt to revive themselves. That being said, if you die while in shadow form, you’re done, presumably until the next round.

If you’re a fan of the original perk, however, that’s not a problem, as the tier-three upgrade for the Black Ops Cold War version allows you to drop a small stash, which includes all of your original items, when you die, which is almost identical to how the BO2 version worked.

Beyond that, the developers also confirmed that two new scorestreaks will be coming to the game: the Artillery and Napalm Strike. Each one can be crafted from the Crafting Table, although it’s unknown whether or not they’ll be available on just Firebase Z or if Die Maschine is also getting some love.

All in all, it seems like Firebase Z is going to bring a ton of cool features when it launches on February 4, 2021, which is sure to liven up the overall Zombies experience in Black Ops Cold War.
