Update: Treyarch heard complaints about their Double XP event shortening, and extended it for another 24 hours. It will run until 10 AM Tuesday Nov 17 PDT. This is 1 PM EST, and 6 PM GMT. Double XP now plays in both multiplayer and zombie modes.
Update: 2XP is currently available in #BlackOpsColdWar MP and will be coming to Zombies later today. To make sure everyone has their time to grind, we’ll extend the 2XP by 24 hours until 10 AM PDT Tuesday Nov 17! pic.twitter.com/ElWAPpy2nbNovember 15, 2020
The original story: One of the most common complaints here is only after the Call of Duty: Black Ops – The Cold War Is that XP weapon takes forever ever. It’s all over the reddit, with a lot of people blaming him for the dominance of the MP5 submachine gun in multiplayer matches. (It’s also possible that the MP5 has been overpowered. Keep reading to learn more about it.)
Treyarch Studios appears to have heard the sad, calm, cat-like screams of a hungry CoD player. (That’s actually just me.) The first round of Double Experience Points from the game will begin today, Nov 15, at 10:00 AM PDT. This is 1:00 PM ET or 6:00 PM GMT, for reference. (Lucky Brits, I think. It’s likely everything will stop working by then.)
Ready to grind? 24 Hours of 2XP at #BlackOpsColdWar kicks off at 10 AM PDT!November 15, 2020
“Ready to grind? 24 hours of 2XP at #BlackOpsColdWar starting at 10 AM PDT!” tweet From the official Treyarch account. It’s exciting for those who are indulging in a party full of the latest game in their favorite franchise, and no irony here, I totally support you having fun there. (Please remember to take a shower and eat.) However, I would like to comment politely on how miserable this tweet is. Remember when game grinding was considered a bad thing? But we’re celebrating it now? No? just me? OK.
Elsewhere on Twitter, game developers promised that balance updates for weapons and scores “will come with Season 1, if not earlier.” It is also, most likely, a commentary on the power of the dominant MP5 submachine gun in the Cold War, with players often indicating that it is better in long-range combat than the newly weakened sniper rifles of the Cold War.
There will be a Weapon, Scorestreak, and more balance changes coming with Season 1, if not before that. We are already seeing some interesting trends in the analyzes, but it is too early to conclusions. If you provide feedback, know that we see and take it into account.November 15, 2020
