Call of Duty players have had problems trying to use Double XP tokens in Black Ops Cold War. Many of them have taken to Reddit to point out the problems, and they demand major changes from Activision.
Warzone’s integration with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has brought a lot of exciting content for players. There are brand new weapons you can unlock, as well as a playable operator in season one. In addition, Activision also recently hosted a series of Double XP events for both titles.
Many players who received the match pass received Double XP tokens Call of Duty Modern Warfare this season. However, this has not gone well, and a thread on Reddit has highlighted the problems players have to deal with when using them. They want some big changes to happen soon.
BOCW fans want changes to Double XP tokens
Many fans have had problems with Double XP tokens for a solid year now. The biggest complaint is that it takes forever to find a match when you use them, which makes tokens seem unnecessary.
Reddit user u / Tritonpr95x wrote a post regarding this issue in Black Ops Cold War subreddit. The player stated that it is annoying to waste time looking for hits on tokens, and that it takes a long time to find a game.
“Really lame that you lose so much time looking for matches on your token. Not sure what it is, but after a bit of searching it seems like many people have the same problem where finding matches takes forever. Crossplay enabled. ”
Many other actors in the comments shared this feeling. They agreed that the tokens should be “in match-time”, and that they should act as those from Infinite Warfare where you have a good game, and then double the XP.
There is an alert in the game that acknowledges this issue, so the developers and Activision are aware that this issue is bothering players. Despite the various posts that have come in on this topic, they have not yet announced that they plan to fix it anytime soon.
A few comments commented on the 15-minute XP tokens being particularly problematic. One from u / Darkestneon criticized that you only get one of them for a game, and then you end up spending a good deal of that time waiting in the lobby.
“That’s why 15min XP tokens are scams. They only let you use them for one MP game. Then you lose 5 minutes in the lobby and when loading. You lose ONE THIRD of your character that you got with a match pass that you PAID for.
It’s a scam. Give me at least 30min tokens. 15 minutes is pretty much useless. I agree that they should be in playing time though ”
You can activate old Double XP tokens
The best way to solve this problem is to get one lobby and then activate the tokens the other before the map starts loading. As another user pointed out, you can also activate the old tokens from Warzone and then jump into the Cold War to reap the benefits of the Double XP you saved.
This method still works as a player tried it and said, “Thanks, I just did this and it worked. Now it’s enough to talk about it, before they get wind and block it from working somehow.”
A few players in the thread commented that they have not experienced the problem to this degree. Some of them have reportedly joined a fight after only a minute of waiting in the lobby. However, the problem is still more widespread than it has been for some time.
