Call of Duty: Black Ops II Double XP Weekend Now Underway

View author's profile

Activision and Treyarch has flicked the 'double XP switch' to on for Call of Duty: Black Ops II this weekend, pre-empting the imminent release of the Uprising Map Pack next week.

Double XP is live now on Call of Duty: Black Ops II multiplayer and will run until April 15th 10am PST, meaning you might be spoilt for choice when it comes to multiplayer events, as Rockstar is holding an epic event across six of its games this weekend too.

You'll be able to download the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising Map Pack first on Xbox 360 on April 16th for 1200 MSP or as part of the Season Pass. Check out the Mob of the Dead Zombies bit in the trailer below.

I will never understand why they started doing these the weekend before the new DLC releases instead of the weekend after. I'd prefer to earn the 2x XP while on a Call of Duty binge to play the new maps. Oh well, I'll likely be playing anyway.

@6 I prefer it this way. I'm too busy playing zombies to care about the multiplayer maps at the time. Either this or they should have double XP a week or two AFTER the DLC arrives.

@7 That's a really good point, I totally didn't even consider that. Still tho, it'd be nice to at least have 2x XP on the new map playlist if nothing else.

I, for one, sort of want double XP for some of the older Call Of Duty games.

It would've been nice to see a new gun again in my opinion, i think that adds an extra bit of excitement to the game, this looks sweet though!

Mob of the Dead looks nice. But why bother with announcing Double XP? It's filled with Flashers, Shotgun Runners, "Hard-Scopers" and your general tryhards. It's worse on Nuketown. :/

They're called snipers. You know, the actual way you're supposed to snipe.

There's no need for this really, it was easily the fastest Prestige 1-10 in any CoD game!

Would be great if they did both the weekend before AND after the DLC, i'm looking forward to hammering the new MP maps, and Double XP would be a great addition. Though I do appreciate much time post-launch will be taken up by people battling on Mob of the Dead, swings and roundabouts I guess . . .

Let's see how close to 9th Prestige I can get to this weekend :-)

Xbox Live is still down, I live in Michigan and it's 5:51 PM and it's been down since 1:00 PM for me. I'm not trying to play CoD, but I am trying to play other games which requires the use of Xbox Live

But can I?

No. I love paying $60 for a service I can't use. oh, and the other services I have like NetFlix, and NHL Network. yeah Thumbs fucking up microsoft. and you expect the next gen console to ALWAYS be online? hahaha well you failed at it already I say.

By hard-scopers, I mean players that sit in a corner and shoot at you. When does an actual sniper just randomly sit anywhere? Plus Xbox Live got hit with a HUGE problem. People can't connect and parties are broken. I blame BO2

@24: Who pays $60 for XBL? LOL moron. Second, oh boo hoo XBL is down for several hours and you say the service sucks. Really kid? Has your internet ever gone out due to anything at all? Did you say that sucked too? Get a life, how about going outside or reading a book? I'm pretty sure you survived several hours without live buddy.

#29: Really? So you expect a free game out of this? What a bunch of entitled twats! The only reason we got free games then was XBL was gone for an EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. This was only a few hours, not days. Even then they didn't have to give us anything. Also, I was out of XBL for like 5-6 days earlier this year because I had ATT. Did you see me whining and complaining hoping for a free game from MS? No because I'm not some entitled brat.
