With so many Prestige levels, different weapon levels, and Battle Pass levels in Cold War and Warzone in Season 6, it’s only natural to want more XP. Here’s when the next CoD Double XP event is going to be.
XP has been a vital component of Call of Duty’s multiplayer for many years. It’s the quintessential upgrade mechanic that allows you to increase your in-game level and provide you access to better gear and attachments.
It’s now time for another one where players will be able to level up all of the new content at a much faster pace.
How to get Double XP in CoD: Cold War & Warzone Season 6
It’s been announced that Call of Duty’s next Double XP promotional event will be for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War and will officially start on October 22 and end on October 15 with a second Double XP Weekend taking place between October 29 and November 1.

- EST – 1:00 PM
- CST – 12:00 PM

These special Double XP Events usually occur during a weekend, as it naturally gives players the most free time as it’s away from school hours and generally when people are off work.

Best LAPA loadout for CoD: Cold War Season 6
The LAPA is the final SMG to arrive in Black Ops Cold War and the here’s how to make the best Season 6 loadout with attachments and Perks.
The LAPA SMG has been added in Cold War Season 6 and looks to send Treyarch’s shooter off in style. So to celebrate it, here’s the best LAPA loadout you can put together, attachments, and Perks, and all.
- Best Cold War LAPA loadout attachments
- Best Perks to run with the LAPA in Cold War Season 6
- How to unlock the LAPA in Cold War Season 6
- Best alternatives to the LAPA in Cold War Season 6
Best Cold War LAPA loadout attachments
- Optic: Microflex LED
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 10.2″ Ranger
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
- Magazine: Vandal Speed Loader
To make a great LAPA SMG loadout, we begin with a simple Microflex LED optic to improve its visual cleanliness.
The Agency Suppressor is a tried and trusted attachment that emphasizes vertical recoil reduction and aids concealment. Whereas the 10.2″ Ranger barrel provides some very welcome range and bullet velocity.
To round this loadout off, we’ve opted for the ever-popular Field Agent Grip for a massive recoil boost and the Vandal Speed Loader sacrifices a tiny bit of ADS speed for more starting ammo and greatly reduced reload speeds.
Best Perks to run with the LAPA in Cold War Season 6
- Perk 1: Flak Jacket / Tactical Mask
- Perk 2: Scavenger / Assassin
- Perk 3: Ghost / Ninja
You only need five attachments for the LAPA SMG in Cold War, meaning Perk Greed can be selected to allow an extra Perk in each slot.
Flak Jacket is immensely useful for overcoming the large number of explosives and Scorestreaks you’ll face in each match of Cold War. Whereas the Tactical Mask is vital to surviving the large number of Gas Mines that will also be placed.
With the LAPA being an SMG, there’s always the chance you’ll munch your way through clips of ammo, so Scavenger will keep your ammo count healthy. Assassin is a nice way of earning bonus points during games and will help you to earn some of the game’s higher Scorestreaks.
Our last two Perks are Ghost, which will hide you from Spy Planes, and Ninja will allow you to run more quietly, freeing you up in a way.
How to unlock the LAPA in Cold War Season 6
The LAPA is available to players that successfully complete all 9 challenges for The Haunting event, on either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone.
Follow our guide on how to complete The Haunting challenges to unlock LAPA SMG to add this powerful weapon to your inventory.

How to open Scare Packages in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer & Zombies
One of The Haunting challenges players with opening a Scare Package in Black Ops Cold War, here’s how to do it in multiplayer and Zombies.
Scare Packages have dropped into Black Ops Cold War’s The Haunting event, and players are tasked with opening one of these spooky supply drops for a challenge. Here’s where you can find them in Cold War multiplayer and Zombies.
Among the new skins and maps is a host of creepy challenges to be completed, one of which asks players to open an aptly named Scare Package in multiplayer or Zombies.
Here’s our guide to completing this challenge in both modes.
How to open Scare Packages in multiplayer
Scare Packages come as reskinned versions of the normal Care Packages called in as a Scorestreak. You’ll be able to them apart thanks to their orange color and the Halloweeny music that plays when the helicopters drop it off.
Coming across Scare Packages in multiplayer is probably the trickier method of the two because devs have made it a game of chance.
The problem is that not every Care Package comes as a Scare Package, so you will have to keep getting scorestreaks to have a chance of one dropping.
There’s also the issue that other players could swoop in and steal your Scare Package after it lands, so make sure you’re in a safe space when you call it in.
How to open Scare Packages on Zombies
To open a Scare Package in Zombies, instead of players calling them in they will spawn in a random location on the map every five rounds.
It’s far more straightforward here because you don’t have to compete with other players but just a hoard of AI Zombies.
Unfortunately, they won’t show up on your mini-map, but thanks to their bright color you shouldn’t have too much trouble tracking them down.
We recommend saving one Zombie at the end of the round so you can freely explore the map without worrying about being eaten alive.
That was our guide on how to open Scare Packages in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer and Zombies.

How to complete Cold War Forsaken Zombies Perkaholic easter egg
The new Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Zombies map, Forsaken, has a great easter egg for players to get every perk in the game.
Zombies players have found a brand new easter egg for the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 map Forsaken, which grants Perkaholic upon completion.
Having said that, players are still finding secrets and easter eggs in Forsaken, and the latest gives players Perkaholic. Here’s how you can complete the Forsaken Zombies Perkaholic easter egg.
Popular Zombies YouTuber MrDalekJD put up a video explaining how you can get Perkaholic in Forsaken.
The steps are fairly simple for something that gives you every perk in the game, but it will take some time and knowledge to do.
We’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how to complete the Forsaken Zombies Perkaholic easter egg, courtesy of MrDalekJD.
How to complete Forsaken Zombies Perkaholic easter egg
First off, make your way to the first floor of the Video Store in Anytown West.
As you enter the building, go to the back left corner of the room and you will see a VHS tape tucked up against the shelf. Couch, throw a grenade at the tape, and it should knock it over to be picked up.

Once you’ve picked it up, note that you have to go prone to get the prompt to grab it, make your way over to the TV Store. Head behind the counter and insert the VHS into the tape player.
Hit play on the tape player and four TVs will light up in front of you with different colors: Blue, green orange, and red. This is essentially a Simon says mini-game in which the player needs to shoot the TVs in the same order in which they light up.
There are three sequences of four colors that players will have to keep up with. We suggest using a notepad or your phone to keep track of the sequences if you’re having trouble.
After this step, one of the TVs will stay on permanently, you will need to interact with the TV to progress. Once you have interacted with the final TV, your screen will go grey and a figure will begin to follow you. You must avoid this figure and not let it get close to you, as it will kill you instantly.
The figure will respawn every two to four minutes, and to progress, you will need to purchase Tombstone Soda. If you then go to the Particle Accelerator room whilst you are in the Tombstone Soda shadow mode after being killed, you will see the figure is floating above the particle accelerator.
You then need to shoot the figure, which will cause it to multiply, and keep shooting the one with the flaming eyes. Once you’ve shot the correct figure numerous times, it will disappear.
Revive yourself using Tombstone and you’ll notice every perk has been given to you, congratulations you’ve completed the Perkaholic easter egg!
Keep in mind this will only work for one person, but this will guarantee Perkaholic for that player if they can complete it.
