Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War fans have been given a fantastic opportunity to level up their favourite weapons.
Just a few days removed from a full double XP weekend, Cold War developer Treyarch has announced plans to give fans another boost.
The latest double XP weekend focuses exclusively on weapons, giving players the chance to level up their loadouts.
The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War double weapons XP event runs from February 12 until February 16.
Fans will start earning double XP from 6pm UK time later today, until the same time on Tuesday. That’s plenty of time to make those weapons your own.
The news was announced by Treyarch on Twitter: “Double Weapon XP Weekend begins Friday, Feb. 12th! Get those loadouts ready.”
It marks the end of a busy couple of weeks for the Call of Duty franchise as a whole.
Last week saw the release of update 1.11, which added lots of new features as part of a mid-season refresh.
This includes a brand new Zombies map, as well as a remake of a fan favourite multiplayer level.
Titled Firebase Z, the new Zombies map follows on from the events of the Die Maschine.
“The next chapter in the Black Ops Cold War Zombies saga begins on February 4 in ‘Firebase Z,’ Treyarch’s latest map in the new Dark Aether story.
“Following the events of ‘Die Maschine,’ Grigori Weaver and the agents of Requiem will storm the jungles of Vietnam to rendezvous with an Omega Group informant and attempt to save Samantha Maxis from Outpost 25.
“This entirely new Zombies location is packed with new enemies, game features, hidden secrets, and a powerful new Wonder Weapon to wield against the undead. Watch the trailer if you haven’t already, and get ready to grab your squad and jump in.”
If Zombies isn’t your thing, then you can check out the brand new Express map in multiplayer.
The 6-vs-6 map is a remake of the popular stage from Call of Duty Black Ops 2.
“Returning from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Express arrives February 4 in Black Ops Cold War as a 6v6 Multiplayer favourite, known fondly as the hi-tech train station that hosted many a jaw-dropping moment in competitive Call of Duty history,” reads the official description.
“Express is a roughly U-shaped map featuring two train tracks looping around the transportation hub’s main hall,” Activision continues.
“Players can expect plenty of close-quarters combat in the hall, but should note that its glass ceiling leaves it susceptible to enemy Scorestreaks.
“Long-range combat can take place across the train tracks, especially when looking out from the skybridges on either side of the map.
“These areas are also great places to watch one of the high-speed trains bolt by the station on one of the tracks, where it won’t hesitate to take out any Operator who doesn’t mind the gap.”
