Sledgehammer Games has announced two new additions to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer: XP bonus for having full gear sets and new set of Royalty Weapons. XP bonus will be available June 23rd on all platforms; new Royalty weapons will be available June 23rd on Xbox One only.

XP Bonus for Full Gear Sets:

The new XP Bonus for Gear Sets allows players that have earned the full gear set to earn XP bonus if players wear the entire set in matches. XP bonus for wearing full gear sets will be available on Tuesday, June 23rd on all platforms.

If you wear a full Gear Set, youโ€™ll receive a +%5 XP Bonus for all of your online matches! Weโ€™re launching with a large number of full Gear Sets that will receive an XP Bonus.

The chart in the gallery below shows how many pieces each gear set has. From the armory, starting June 23rd, you will be able to tell what pieces you have and what is missing from each set.

New set of Royalty Weapons:

Sledgehammer Games has announced that they are adding more new Royalty variants of existing guns, which are Elite variants of the weapons. On June 23rd, the second set of 10 Royalty weapon variants will be launching on Xbox One. Players will be able to earn these new Royalty weapons via both Regular and Advanced Supply Drops. According to Sledgehammer Games, this new set of Royalty weapons will feature different stats than the first set: they will have faster reload speed compared to their Elite versions.

These new Royalty Weapons are coming soon to PS4 and PC. As with the last set of Royalty weapons, these will not be available on Xbox 360 and PS3 because of hardware restrictions.

The first set of Royalty Weapons is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

    Why are is the royalty gear (which isn’t DLC) being delayed for playstation and PC? The same keeps happening with patches and other FREE weapons that they are releasing. Did the contract this year get updated to include absolutely everything or something?

    • lunator100hd .

      The contract was always the same, any after-release content for cod free or not has to be delayed for ps and pc

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        The contract ended this year.

        • lunator100hd .

          It is still on

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            For Advanced Warfare. The contract lasts 3 years. The contract is over.

          • Keshav Bhat

            They have not announced anything. The contract is for Advanced Warfare and they have not announced any end date.

            The original contract ended with Black Ops 2, but then was renewed for Ghosts and renewed again for Advanced Warfare.

            No official end date has been announced, but I’m sure next week at E3 we will find out who has the contract or if anyone does for Black Ops 3.

            Kyle ? ? is not possible to get him back on here.. I’m a broken record .. Very very sorry ?

          • Keshav Bhat

            I got his email and saw his IP wasn’t banned.

            His email he used to sign up was, which I removed the ban on it. If he still cannot access the site, he is gonna have to provide the exact IP he has cause I cannot find the IP he sent.

          • RIP Kyle

            I can rename account then?

          • fuck you

            go fuck yourself and get off of COD you underage POS

          • ScOott


          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Is it?

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      The contract has ended this year. The reason why AW is still getting early content, is because of the fact that it’s still in its lifecycle (released in 2014 so the contract is still in effect).

    Should have started this a lot earlier.

    • RdJokr

      Better late than never. Could always use some extra XP. Though 5% is really little… Better make that 10% SHG, and we’ll have ourselves a deal.

      • Mark

        Mark my words, there will be an increased XP bonus weekend instead of a double XP weekend or they combine 2XP and 10%

  • Elias Duarte-Lopez

    Damn, No ASM1 or BAL27 Royalty Weapon! ๐Ÿ˜›

    • RdJokr

      The hell do you mean there aren’t any? We already got one for each of those with the last Royalty update.

      • Guywithbrains

        A moment of silence for our friend who took the bait (I guess).

        • RdJokr

          I’d like to think the guy who made the post, then deleted it, made a dumb mistake.

          • Elias Duarte-Lopez

            I deleted it because I thought it would delete the rest of the comments but I guess not. Anyways I didn’t know that there was more Royalty Elite weapons that came out earlier because I was on Vacation.

          • TheDemonOfHate

            What did the person post? I need a laugh right now.

          • RdJokr

            He asked “No ASM1 and BAL-27 Royalty? :P”

  • Dr. Salim

    Oh boy, 5%!!!!

  • RdJokr

    You might wanna edit the article, Keshav. Sledgehammer specifically said the new Royalty variants have faster reload speeds.

  • Slothigans

    A ten percent bonus would be a better incentive. Or maybe the higher the prestige, the higher the percentage.

  • ProfessorYadier

    Does anyone know how to get the Atlas Infantry Gloves?

    • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

      Supply drops .-.

      • ProfessorYadier


  • ShepeTunka

    Hardware restriction…?
    Isn’t that just another 3D texture applied to the gun?
    How is this new royalty texture restricted by the hardware?

    What about animated textures such Magma?
    PS3 has no problem with that.

    • Eddie

      Royalty was bs
      Should’ve just released it as a camo you can get for, let’s say, getting the regular Royalty camo on all weapons?

      • ShepeTunka

        I feel cheated.
        I’ve paid full price for the game.
        Spent X amount on Advanced Supply Drops.
        And still not getting everything on the game.
        I hope someone from Sledgehammer is reading this.

        • xGeneralRex

          You paid full price, and got exactly what you paid for. These are just little bits of bonus content. I don’t see how purple guns can make or break the game.

          And whether or not you want to believe it, it truly is because of hardware limitations. When the game is being developed for last gen, they have a set amount of space they can utilize for weapons, camos, maps, etc. Any reserve space is used for later DLC packs. It seems they’re cramped for space, especially considering they even managed to give last gen the M1 Irons.

          So at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how many people complain. They literally cannot give you more content than the PS3/360 hardware allows.

          • ShepeTunka

            I know some purple camo doesn’t make of break my gameplay. It is about getting the same content as the rest of platforms.
            If the problem is space to run the textures.
            (Thanks for the explanation)
            I would suggest Sledgehammer to get rid of some crap to make space.
            Useless stuff such MDL, MAAWS, Lynx, Crossbow. All of that and more should be retired.

          • Ha Ha Ha. Take out weapons for a PURPLE CAMO! Lol, okay buddy.

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          Next time, don’t pay for ASD’s. Just dupe them with a glitch.

        • You didn’t have to spend money on Advanced Supply Drops. No one forced you to.

          • ShepeTunka

            Are you from Sledgehammer? Activision?

          • What no. Why? Why would I hate on the game then?

  • Ryumoau

    thats a pretty awesome idea to give bonuses for wearing full armor sets. Thats something you see alot in rpgs. Too bad i don’t actually own a full set myself yet, since i sell alot of stuff. lol

    • Eddie

      Atlas Campaign, KVA Assassin, Marksman, Mastery, and Zombie
      All armours you can unlock, no Supply drops needed

      • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

        I have almost all… Condrey didn’t ever patch the Unlimited Supply Drop glitch… Opened 400+ of them… Maybe 500+. Not even a penny spent ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          Unlimited Advanced Supply Drop*

          • how?

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            I have a youtube video on it If it hits 25K I will release the how-to.

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr
          • WhiskeyDick

            Just tell us how before activision has your video deleted… I don’t see ya reaching that many views before it’s been patched anyways

            I need the royalty pants and helmet lol

          • Dragon kush

            Yo can u please release a video on the glitch I really want to know how I’ve been screwed over so many times by sledge hammer gaming. Please

          • Dragon kush

            Yo post a video on the supply drop glitch!

    • Seth Back

      The zombie gear set seemed to be the easiest to get
      Just complete Exo Survival

      • Ryumoau

        thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Spodermen

    Lul diz gaem iz trash but em stull guin 2 cummnt un ebery articul

  • ghosts sucks

    What do they mean EARN? You could have only “earned” 4 full gear sets.

  • Stefan Lang

    Who even uses that piece of shit MDL?

  • jooker-jr

    Noice !

  • TheGamerBeast

    the first set of royalty weapons and Sac 3 non akimbo should out on PC & PS4 june 13th tomorrow? cz tomorrow becomes a month after they’re out on xbox but it’s gonna be Saturday lol

    • RdJokr

      IIRC, it dropped on Xbox on May 19, or 20. So it should be next week for us.

  • Cool idea and all. But it is also another cheap tactic. It’s just another way for them to keep you playing. Yes, I know that’s the point. But after level 50, what is the point of prestiging? It doesn’t change the game in any way. Ooh a cool emblem, so game changing. I know it’s in every Cod, but what’s the point. Prestiging just keeps you playing to achieve nothing, and while you do that they entice you with supply drops and xp and royalty. And to have a random chance of getting the stuff sooner, they entice you to buy advanced supply drops. #BSTactics LOL!


      if you dont enjoy the game dont play it lmfao

      • I never said I didn’t like the game in this comment, even though I don’t. But I just hate the corruption and money-whoreing in game development right now. Compare today’s market to the 90s – 2000s era. Today’s is a joke with broken games. But oh the argument is always to just not play it or buy it, but not to actually make good games, lol. Do you people really just accept what is and not try to make the standards higher? Damn! I also hate the terrible forms of micro dlc in any shape or form being made for any game. And I do know that not every game is bad or all dlc is behind a paywall, but most. But hey it’s always just my incorrect opinion and never what’s actually going on right? So yeah.

        • EnderZ

          Platform A, express train to the 1990’s is waiting take you back. But, if you don’t catch it, exit the platform to the present. Stop bitching about the past, the good ole days, they where fuck days to, just age and its byproduct nostalgia catching up to you. Would tell you its going to be ok, but you are just getting older, crankier, bitchier….

  • Kobrah

    How many pieces for Atlas Contractor? Can’t see it on the list ๐Ÿ™


    Glad i saved that KVA leader set and finale collecting an entire set is worth something or just even earning one

  • Caleb

    5%……wow that’s lame

  • AstroCyborg

    what a awful attempt by activision in trying to get people from playing batman arkham knight

    • Drasadex

      because that’s ATVI’s motive lol

  • Kirkio

    Finally an actual incentive to saving the gear! Great idea, shame they didn’t add this in months ago though. Would’ve been nice to see more of a bonus for unlockable sets (prestige sets, marksman, weapon master, etc) but ah well

  • Joe Campr

    Why no bonus for haveing a full set of Centurian or Valkrie?
