Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War April 8 Patch Brings Gunfight Tournaments and Double XP Event

Double XP Event
Double XP Event Treyarch

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War received an important update yesterday but it is not the April 7 update we are talking about that brought the new sniper. The latest update is still fresh from the oven released the very next day.

Treyarch wants you to level up faster. That’s why there is a four-day Double XP Weekend for Multiplayer, Zombies, and League Play, which will be active till 1 a.m. EST on April 12. While Warzone mode will feature the same XP event, it will only be live from April 10 to 12.

The update also enabled a new Gunfight tournament where 16 teams will participate in a 2v2 single-elimination. The tourney comes with cool exclusive rewards like new Calling Cards, Charms, and Emblem, and more. Just make sure that you register for the tournament to seal your chance. More details about it are mentioned below along with the rest of the patch notes.



Gunfight Tournaments

  • Each Tournament is broken up into 4 Rounds: Preliminaries, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and the Tournament Finals.
  • XP is also awarded as players win their way through each Tournament and can be earned repeatedly with each Tournament participation.
