Treyarch has announced that 2X Cryptokey and 2X Liquid Divinium will be live in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for this weekend, starting on Friday, April 8th at 10AM PT and ending on Monday, April 11th at 10AM PT.


The Black Market is only available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and so, the 2X Cryptokey weekend is only available on those platforms. Liquid Divinium is available across all platforms.

  • Hopefully

    First!

  • Sal

    Yay! We are back at the rate when the game first launched! (…I think)

    • The Flash

      yeah 4-6 at the start

    • Daniel

      I don’t know why everyone thinks that, they actually increased the crypto rate, at launch it was around 1.75 per 10 mins now it’s 2.5

      • Sal

        i recall I used to get a solid 3-3.5 every game of TDM. Now i only average 2-2.5. Maybe they buffed it in the very beginning but they fooled around with it again a couple of months ago and nerfed it.

        • Who Am I To Judge?

          I think that at the beginning the rate was slow, then they buffed it. After that, they realized that not all game modes had to same rate, so therefore it lowered in some, and increased in others.

          • Sal

            The longer the game mode the more CKs you get I noticed but most game modes take longer than a TDM game plus i only play TDM.

            I played safeguard not too long ago when grinding for Hero armor and noticed i was getting 3-4 CKs a game depending how long each match lasted.

          • Who Am I To Judge?

            I’ve gotten up to 5 in a single match because it lasted a full 20 minutes. I believe that TmarTn (I know, a taboo name on this site) made a video of the results of someone testing the rates at the beginning of the game, and how they were different from each other. This would help the TDM players in their earn rate, because of the game mode taking often less time than other modes

        • Vinbat

          I believe it is 1 for finishing a match, 1 for winning, and 1 for a top 3 finish.

          • Sal

            Explains why i rarely get 3 CKs. Lol.

          • Thomas the Tankswag

            Bs, nothing based on top 3 finish or finishing a match. The game gives you ~23% of the bar filled per min played if you lose or ~29% of the bar filled if you win. So in a standard 10min game you get 2.9 cryptokeys for winning and 2.3 cryptokeys for losing.

    • Gamerazor247

      Why does everyone say they altered the Cryptokey earning rate, I noticed that I got like 4+ Keys if I won a match, got large amount of medals and completed a Calling Card/Specialist/Camo challenge. On average I get like 2 and a half worth of keys, and if I were to play Ground War or Safeguard, I’d get 3 or nearly 4… All I’m saying is, I haven’t felt cheated and it usually takes me 2.5 hours just to purchase a RSD. *shrugs*

      • Sal

        I used to average in 3-3.5 in TDM. That went down to 2-2.5. I noticed the change before ever clicking on any kind of reddit post/article on the net. A 1 CK change is actually a big difference.

        TDM

        2.5 CKs=12 games=96 mins
        3.5 CKs=8-9 games=68 mins.

        People feel “cheated” because their in-game odds are limited.

      • Lach Labanna

        Nah dude in domination when we would run 6 man parties all of us were getting 5-8 a game depending on who got to call in their score streaks now I’ll drop 60 kills and get 2 keys. And it doesn’t seemed based on challenges to me because I’ve reset 4 times

        • Gamerazor247

          Lol, why did you reset so many times, I’ve only done it once for the Calling Card and I’m still pissed off about it because I still haven’t gotten the Gone Fishing Calling Card again.

      • I feel like Ive been getting less. There was a time where i would get minimum 4 keys a game, no matter what the game mode. Now Im lucky if I get 2-3.

  • The Flash

    so for every divinium earned, you get 2 instead?

    • TheDemonOfHate

      Hopefully sounds kind of OP since you can more LD now.
      Or the rate of getting it, is higher.

      • The Flash

        earning more LD needed to be changed tbh, games could go on for hours and you got your diviniums by round 12, then people quit and do the same again

  • Guywithbrains

    HG40 here I come!

    Who am I cheating…

    • w

      kidding? or cheating?

      • Guywithbrains

        I am going to grind anyway just to make my chances so good as possible.

    • ScOott

      I have 300 of them I’m saving them till the next lot of weapons come round.. The gun u mentioned is the only one I want at the minute, it’s just not worth spending them for the one gun, cuz The chances are so low, I’m waiting for a few more I want before I start spending..

      • Eric Wyatt

        good thinking I grinded all weekend and got nothing. I guess the good thing is i hit two more prestiges

  • RobMelchor

    Great news, I want the Katana sword!

    • lunator100hd .

      There is no katana sword.

      • RobMelchor

        My bad, I meant the “Fury’s Song” sword 😛

  • Mick

    And it only took this long for Treyarch to realize that we haven’t had a 2x cryptokey weekend. You made someone very happy today 🙂

  • jordanxbrookes

    If only I wasn’t going away on holiday for a week rip :'(

    • Aceshigh87

      I’m gone all weekend as well so will only be getting any time tomorrow night, if at all.

      Not that it matters, I’m hoarding keys in hopes that the Arms Dealer rumours are true.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’m leaving tomorrow morning so no Double Cryptokeys for me 😐

        • TheDemonOfHate

          Give us your account info, All of us on CI will support you & help you earn CK.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Lol

    • ScOott

      Lol just cancel it.. This opportunity doesn’t happen very often.. I’m sure who ever ur going with will understand.. Who needs a holiday when u got double krypto keys for weapons u want but won’t get anyway, so u sweat ur ass off for nothing..

      • Laddie

        Who needs double cryptokeys when you can get them COD POINTS 😉

      • jordanxbrookes

        I wish I could cancel m8 :/

  • Thomas the Tankswag

    Me right now

    • Thug Turf

      My body is Reggie.

    • Drank Bleach

      Kinda funny they’re doing the double cryptokeys and liquid divinium after the black market blackout.

  • YoungMurf

    My mind is telling me noooo… but my body, my body is telling me yesss! About time Treyarch.

  • It’s about freaking time.

  • TheDemonOfHate

    Perkaholics! & I’m happy that they are supporting the zombies community too.

    Prayers for me. I got a driving test this Saturday.

    • Laddie

      Good luck man

    • Vikerii

      Prayers for you AND any nearby pedestrians!

  • Simple Sumon

    They only doin it to try stop ppl moaning about supply drops

    • Neymliss

      So voicing valid criticism is moaning?

      • Simple Sumon

        No your just mis understanding me i mean they are basically doing it to try and shut people up or to deflect everyone’s attention! I’m not slating people saying about the drips I’m with everyone the supply drops are ridiculous and a total ripoff!

  • lunator100hd .

    Its not bid deal for me , if i play 5h all the weekend with 2xcryptos is like 10h, not that much of a diference anyway, i have put 7 days on this game and i have got nothing , i single weekend that counts as 2 is not gonna change anything, what we really need is supply drop with 100% chance of a gun.

  • Stefan Rang

    Who cares about crytokeys. Not me, give us a double xp again with crytokey/liquid weekend.
    I am gone use my time for liquids. You can get more then 5 liquids in a solo zombie match, and with the double weekend i get 10 🙂

  • CoDforever

    Shoutout to the idiots that said Treyarch would never do one

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      That’s one way to make people play a shitty game.

      • CoDforever

        Haha, werent you saying how Bo3 was good just a few months ago? Gotta love the cod cycle.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I never said anything. Black Ops 3 is a good CoD in regards to Campaign and Zombies, but its Multiplayer needs work. It’s shit.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          To add unto that, it’s a mixed experience. It’s fun when the matchmaking is good, but the worst online experience ever when the game puts you up against sweats. The TTK, view kick, [some] maps, and matchmaking are completely shitty experiences, and some weapons need work. Supply Drops are the least of Black Ops 3’s worries. Let’s have a fun game a hundred percent of the time, first.

  • CoDforever

    So it looks like we will be getting a double cryptokey weekend every 3 months or so

  • It’s about time!! 😀

  • Thug Turf

    The weekend I decide to visit my girlfriend! Good shit Activision/Treyarch.

    • TheDemonOfHate

      #LongDistanceRelationship

      • Thug Turf

        The things I do for love…

  • Grant Burbidge

    Give us all the keys you want, still gunna get fuck all either way!!

    • TheDemonOfHate

      You straight.

  • Bet your fucking asses they will reduce the odds of getting weapons for this weekend, don’t let them Activision cunts brainwash you.

    Grind away for those decals, field camos and the occasional decent gesture.

    • TheDemonOfHate

      That’s why you save it to use during the weekday mmmk

  • Drank Bleach

    What they should is award the top players with extra cryptokeys, not fair when I grind and have the best score on my team and get the same amount when someone plays poorly, imo.

    • Neymliss

      They do it go keep the noobs playing. If they knew they were getting less cryptokeys,some wouldn’t play.
      At least that’s what I assume based on Activision’s track record.

  • Joel

    I assume we’re getting a 2X XP weekend next week right before the DLC launches too?

  • Jake

    I love how all these people whine about needing double crypto keys and then as soon as we get them everyone starts complaining about how the cryptos used to be

  • Joe Handsome

    Save your keys cuz the 10th specialist will most likely be in supply drops coming out on the 18th

    • John

      Awesome, can’t wait.

  • dust&cheese

    i love how instead of just buffing the earn rate they give these little weekend bonuses. that way, they still keep the earn rate low & people get even hungrier for points. it’s the epitome of capitalism

  • Buzz Chalkley

    At what time does it start for France

  • Div1si0n

    Just like they did the supply drop deal.they release it before some new dlc of some sort,it being the 10th specialist this time as it was the release of the HG-40 last time…

  • Stefan Lang

    And after I grind and open drops I still wont have anything good.

  • Steve Cox

    Well is Friday and NO double crypto keys on the xboxone so it’s 18.00 in the UK

  • Hentai

    ya boi just got his first dlc weapon B) its about time, master prestige level 170 with dark matter, all heroes and 85% of all multiplayer challenges complete.

    • weeaboo

      Congrats weeaboo. 🙂

      • Hentai

        dis boi said congrats to himself.. im done -__-

        • YouKnowIT

          You know what I meant.

  • Hentai

    I think they might have changed the rarity of weapons with this Double Cryptokey weekend, I got 2 weapons in less than 24 hours. (And these are my only two) so it’s weird that I suddenly start getting them. O_O

  • Simple Sumon

    Double crypro keys but they have dropped the % rate for a weapon to half so its the same as always! 0.4% chance of a weapon on double crypto key weekend. It’s the same as 0.8% chance on normal cryto key rates!

    Craptivision are the biggest fraudsters / scam artists on the planet but they are doing it in full view of everyone!

    FBI, CIA, MI5 etc investigate the fraudulent activities going on at activision please!!!

    • Who Am I To Judge?

      ?????

  • Diego Diniz

    And again…Played all the weekend…Spent 30 Cryptokeys all the time…NOT EVEN 1 FUCKIN WEAPON!!!

    • Eric Wyatt

      don’t feel bad i played my ass off all weekend saved 1200 CK already had 300 and opened around 50 drops and one fucking Melee weapon. The worse one i got the Carver. wish I would have saved them hoping the Arms dealer rumor was true about a guaranteed weapon.
