Sledgehammer Games has announced two new additions to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer is now live: XP bonus for having full gear sets and new set of Royalty Weapons. XP bonus is available now all platforms; new Royalty weapons are available now 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 in matches is now live on all platforms.

If you wear a full Gear Set, you’ll receive a +%5 XP Bonus for all of your online matches! We’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 and which gear sets qualify for the XP Bonus. From the armory, 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. The second set of Royalty Elite weapons are available now in both Regular and Advanced Supply Drops on Xbox One only. This new set of Royalty weapons feature different stats than the first set: they have faster reload speed compared to their Elite counterparts.

These new Royalty Weapons are coming soon to PlayStation 4 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 10 Royalty Weapons are available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

    First… 😉

    • Oh

      To get hit by a truck.

      • ccrows

        Sweeeeeeeeet! Can it be an Ice Cream Truck?!…

        • Oh

          Then one of the ice cream cones goes up your ass.
          Doesn’t that sounds like fun?

          • ccrows

            Why not, I’ll (usually) try anything once… 😉

          • Oh

            Okok, I got an idea..
            I am sure you never tried this.
            Get a gun,
            Put it in your mouth,
            Pull trigger.
            It will make a

          • ccrows

            Already done it before… (squirt gun) DUH! 😉

            Before you try to one up with something like IDK “Drink bleach” the key word in my post above is USUALLY

  • ccrows

    Anywhoo, good stuff about the “XP Bonus for Full Gear Sets” for those that haven’t maxed out yet, especially since you can earn the gear too… 🙂

  • Oh

    We are reaching the end of AW’s life.
    I wonder how Treyarch will deal with customization.
    I might be in the minority, but I love customization.

    • ccrows

      End of AW’s life? What?

      We still have DLC4 goodness coming down the road… 😉

      • Oh

        Well, it is reaching the end of aw life though.

        • ccrows

          Nah we still have 4 months and change bruh.

          Don’t worry we’ll still have plenty of BO3 articles in between…

          • Oh

            I usually stop playing cod right before the final dlc. Strange.

          • ccrows

            I never stop playing COD, love me some retro nights (even if I wasn’t a big fan of that particular COD).

            ^ Heck I even played me some Ghosts for a little bit the other day… *shrugs*

    • Thomasthetankswag

      I dont mind customisation as long as its still war colours and each team has there own set to make it look like two different teams not a bunch of random people

  • lunator100hd .

    Ive played 10 days this game and i dont have a full gear set perfect!

    • ccrows

      Campaign, or Co-OP (zombie gear) stuff counts…

      • lunator100hd .

        whats the campaign gear?

        • ccrows

          I believe it’s called Atlas Campaign.

          Either way, when you finish the campaign in this game you get a full set of gear for MP, and that gear counts towards the 5% XP…

    • zack

      I bet you do. The kva assasian, sentinal recon, and many others are earnable without supply drops. Take a look in your customization area and when you hover over an item it will tell you how many you have for that set. Also says which ones you still need.

  • RdJokr

    Time to dust out my Atlas Campaign set.

  • YoungMurf

    Play AW quite regularly on Xbox one and haven’t got one Royalty Weapon from the last bunch that was launched. So hyped to not get any from this lot too 🙂

    Derp Derp Derp………………………………This Is Old News

  • melchor2679

    Sucks that the Centurion loadout is not available for XP Bonus.

    • Kobrah

      And the Atlas Contractor 🙁

  • I’ve seen better wallpapers in 100 year old pubs than that Royalty camo.

    … and the likes of Tmrtn have spent £3000+ on ASD’s.


    • yourdumb

      Yea your pretty stupid if you think all those big name youtubers have to spend money for the ASDS

  • Jason_88

    I’m not seeing a 5 percent bonus in xp for wearing a full gear set on ps4 ?

    • zack

      says xbox one only for now

      • ThatOneBlazian

        No it says it’s available for all platforms.

  • Haitian Jack

    Thats pretty smart. IDK why it took them so long to implement this in the game
