Treyarch and Raven Software need little reason to host bonus XP weekends right now, but that doesn’t seem to stop them. Both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone will have double XP and double weapon XP weekends from now until June 21 at 10 a.m. PT, partly in celebration of Father’s Day in many regions, but also to kick off the first weekend of Season Four.
The weekend celebrates the start of season four in both games, which launched yesterday, June 17. Both titles got a new operator known as Jackal (part of the Battle Pass) and a new Hand Cannon scorestreak, which has been proven to be ridiculously powerful against players, vehicles and other scorestreaks. There are four new Prestige Levels to gain and three new weapons to earn – C58, MG 82 and Nail Gun – for which the bonus weekend is a perfect opportunity to progress to improve. The new Ground Fall event has also started and offers unique rewards for completing challenges and objectives related to the fall of the satellites.
war zone also received satellite crash locations and mysterious red doors as new points of interest on the map, as well as a new gulag based on the hijacked map. Die Hard’s Nakatomi Plaza was given new management and renamed Downtown Tower and remained in the game, while the Dirt Bike became a new way to travel around the map. Finally, the new Verdansk Resurgence Mini game mode was launched.
Black Ops Cold War got three new multiplayer maps: Collateral for 6v6 and 12v12, Black Ops 2s Hijacked for 6v6, and Amsterdam for 2v2 and 3v3. One in the Chamber and Multi-Team: Sat Link are the two new game modes to join the multiplayer rotation. For Zombies, there’s the new Zoo Outbreak region and the Operation Excision Outbreak quest, which is a prologue to the next round-based map, Mauer der Toten.
The game’s roadmap shows that even more content will be added throughout the season, including new operators, weapons, game modes and maps. There will also likely be future bonus weekends throughout the season with more double XP and double weapon XP, and maybe even bonus Battle Pass XP. For now, players can take advantage of the current bonuses until June 21 at 10am PT.
