Double XP
Double XP Treyarch

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War April 15 update is here and it brought tons of cool things. A brand new mode called Blueprint Gun Game is now available to play. Two older modes, Apocalypse 24/7 and Snipers Only Moshpit, are also made available. Create-a-Class now has a Custom Mods menu that allows players to name and save custom blueprints.

Developers at Treyarch want you to play Cold War during the weekend. That’s why they enabled a triple-double XP event. Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP have already started and will end at 1 p.m. EST Monday. Treyarch's official blog let us know as well that more content is coming in Season 3. Check out the official Season 2 Outro Trailer above.
