Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone Double XP weekend kicks off tomorrow


And Grinding is Half the Battle

If you're still rat-a-tat-tatting your way through Activision's gazillion-dollar shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and its battle royale sister title, Warzone, then you better get your fridge stocked and your calendar clear, as we have a new Double XP event incoming.

From tomorrow, March 26, until Monday, March 29, Cold War and Warzone players will earn Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP - all of which should help you see those numbers climbing high and offer the accompanying serotonin release. (The event starts tomorrow on PC and Xbox, but is live right now for PlayStation players).

This is an ideal opportunity to grind out the remainder of the current Battle Pass before the arrival of Cold War's next mid-season event. I still need to bag Portnova's "Artist" skin, so I'll be putting in time I'm sure - she's been rocking that Goth ensemble for too long now, and I'm sure those neon-orange leggings and tie-dyed bandanna will provide suitable camouflage.

In regards to mid-season, next week will see the Sanitorium map added to the cycle in Cold War's excellent Zombies Outbreak mode, which sees a squad of soldiers literally hopping portals and popping domes, fighting off wave after wave of the undead while completing a series of increasingly challenging objectives. It's absolutely the smartest Call of Duty addition in years, and with the addition of a new map, things can only get deader.

Finally, developer Treyarch has offered a sneak peek at the reworked "Miami" map, which has had a huge overhaul following player complaints about visibility, rotation paths, and general layout. I personally liked Miami - which probably makes me a monster - but I'm excited to see what the reworked "Miami Strike" brings to multiplayer. Maybe it will finally be the exciting and sexy locale that Will Smith told us all about.
