Modern Warfare Double XP and Double Weapon XP Tokens will not be available for Warzone following its integration with Black Ops Cold War.
Update – Dec 18: Raven Software have added Modern Warfare Double XP Tokens back into Warzone. Tokens earned before Black Ops Cold War x Warzone Season 1 are now called ‘Legacy Tokens’ and are available for use only in MW and Warzone. All Tokens earned during and after Season 1 can be used in Warzone and Cold War.
Original story: If you have completed each of the previous Battle Passes for Modern Warfare and Warzone, it’s likely you have accrued several hours worth of Double XP and Double Weapon XP. Unfortunately, following the Black Ops Cold War x Warzone Season 1 update, these Tokens are locked to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer.
2XP Tokens were included in previous Battle Passes, which players paid for. This makes this change extremely disappointing to players who only play Warzone without having purchased Modern Warfare.
2XP Tokens locked to Modern Warfare
The Token’s being made exclusive to Modern Warfare was first spotted by Reddit user HydroF.
When selecting Tokens from Warzone’s menu, there are only the Tokens earned for Black Ops Cold War available. When going over to MW’s menu, all previously earned Tokens are there.
MW and Warzone shared a Battle Pass, so Warzone-only players who purchased the Battle Pass now can’t use the tokens they paid for, as they have been sent to a game they don’t own.
It’s likely Activision and Treyarch made this change to stop players from leveling up Black Ops Cold War weapons faster than intended. In order to earn Tokens for these weapons, you will need to purchase the Black Ops Cold War Battle Pass.

With tied progression, you can still use the Double XP Tokens to level up by playing MW, but you won’t level up any Cold War weapons. Unfortunately, you will have to purchase Modern Warfare to access your previously earned Tokens.
Activision and Treyarch are yet to comment on the changes, but we’ll update this article with any new information.

Cold War players want unique Numbers Broadcast Scorestreak idea in Season 5
A Cold War player has come up with an inventive Scorestreak that would play on the Numbers theme of Black Ops Cold War Season 5.
One player has come up with a clever Scorestreak idea that would turn friendly players hostile in Black Ops Cold War Season 5, playing on the Numbers theme to manipulate players.
Needless to say that Call of Duty Scorestreaks generally fall into one of a few different categories. You’ve got defensive ones like the Air Patrol, ground weapons like the Hand Cannon or Bow, and all-out aerial dominators like the VTOL, Chopper Gunner, and Gunship.
It’s rare that a new concept lights up streaks, but one player may have come up with an ingenious one. They have mentioned the possibility of using mind control to warp the enemy team and create chaos on the inside.
The idea comes courtesy of the Black Ops Cold War subreddit and they name the Scorestreaks as “Numbers Broadcast.”
Here is the official description of what they think the Scorestreak would involve. “When activated, the sleeper agents will rise, thus some soldiers on the enemy team will have their friendlies show up as enemies in red on the map and friendly fire will be enabled.
“In a franchise this old and frequent, brand new streaks that work in new ways are rare to find, and this is the perfect opportunity to have one.”
It sounds like a unique idea, and one that might need to be one of the game’s pricier Scorestreaks, given how it could basically lock players out.
It could either mean you’d have to be temporarily wary of every player in the game, or the A.I could even take control of a select number of teammates on a team.
Either way, with Black Ops’ history of psychological manipulation, this might be a streak tailor-made for Call of Duty.

Warzone & Cold War Season 5 Operator officially revealed in key art
Key art for Warzone and Cold War Season 5 has reportedly been leaked, revealing the upcoming Operator and a brand-new weapon.
Call of Duty: Warzone and Cold War’s Season 5 Operator and theme have been officially revealed in artwork for the new season.
Warzone and Cold War Season 4 brought a ton of new content to both games, but we’re fast approaching Season 5. There are no official details on what the new season will entail, but one of the biggest expectations is that WW2 Vanguard will be revealed inside Warzone.
However, the Season 5 artwork was reportedly leaked, giving us a look at the brand-new Operator and weapon coming with this new Season before the artwork was officially confirmed by the Call of Duty franchise.
Call of Duty leaker and data miner Nanikos posted a ton of information about Warzone and Cold War Season 5 to the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit. Here, they shared an Imgur link to the leaked Season 5 artwork.
In this image, we can see the supposed Season 5 Operator ‘Kitsune’ wielding what appears to be akimbo TEC-9 Pistols. She’s also surrounded by the numbers associated with Black Ops and Warzone’s Red Doors, so the season will likely continue this ongoing story.
This leak was then officially confirmed on August 3, 2021, when the official Call of Duty Twitter account posted the previously leaked artwork while confirming that Season 5 for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will start on August 12.
Providing more information, Nanikos said that the season is “Japanese themed” and will feature the TEC-9 Pistol that can be spotted in the artwork.
Nanikos also said that we’ll “probably see” the classic Summit map in a new Outbreak region as well as a standalone Summit for 6v6 multiplayer. While there’s no confirmation that they will come in Season 5, the leaker said they “know they’re coming” and will be in Season 6 if not. This follows the recent leak that Cold War will receive 12 more maps.
Nanikos continued that “there is also still PHD and Double Tap for zombies and the lightning links field upgrade” still to come.
Besides the Season 5 artwork that has been officially revealed, all of the other leaks should be taken with the standard pinch of salt. Season 5 is set to launch on August 12, and we’ll know the concrete details when Treyarch and Raven Software releases the official roadmap ahead of this date.
