Double XP weekends are exactly what they sound like in Call of Duty, a whole weekend of free double XP for everyone. But they can be a bit confusing, because Call of Duty currently has multiple live titles at once, and there are five types of double XP that can be active (Operator XP, Weapon XP, Clan XP, Battle Pass, and Level XP).
Don't be put off though, the double XP weekends are a god-send, because weapons take a long time to level these days, and if you're chasing the meta, you need to level new weapons every few weeks. So in this article we're going to breakdown everything you need to know about 2XP weekends, and we'll start with the obvious question: when is the next Warzone Double XP Weekend?
When is the next 2XP Weekend?
Thanks to Raven Software's Trello board, we already know the dates of the next Double XP events. Here is a listing of the future events:
|All platforms||Double XP, Double Weapon XP, Double Battle Pass XP, Double Operator XP||April 27 - May 2|
What time will the Double XP Weekend Start?
Double XP Weekends always start on Fridays for PlayStation users and Saturdays for everyone else, but always at the same time of day.
|Region||Start (PlayStation)||Start (PC & Xbox)||End|
|NA West (PT)||Thursday 10:00|
|NA Central (CT)||Thursday 12:00||Friday 12:00||Monday 12:00|
|NA East (ET)||Thursday 13:00||Friday 13:00||Monday 13:00|

Of course, with the recent news of Microsoft acquiring Activision Blizzard, the current deal between PlayStation and Call of Duty will definitely end, but we don't know exactly when. Either way, you've got a good long while to get your grind on. Hell, maybe this is finally the time to go and get the meta snipers done in Vanguard.
How often do we get Double XP Events?
We get Double XP Weekends every 4-6 weeks, but we also get them when they want to celebrate a random event or get people hyped before a big announcement or launch. We can't predict exactly when they will happen with that time frame, but you never usually have to wait longer than 6 weeks for another Double XP event.
If you really want to get your grind on in-between Double XP weekends, then remember you can unlock Double XP tokens through the Battle Pass that can be popped whenever you want. But you will have to pay $10 for the BP, so judge for yourself whether this Season's Battle Pass is worth it.
Where does the Double XP apply?
Double XP weekends apply to both the live game (currently Vanguard) and Warzone, and you gain 2XP for all types: Operator XP, Weapon XP, Clan XP, Battle Pass, and Level XP. Now that was the good news you were hoping for, wasn't it? Yep, even if you only go for the free-to-play Warzone, and you're only interested in Weapon XP, you get everything you want from a Double XP Weekend.
We absolutely cannot recommend enough that you take advantage of these 2XP weekends using the most efficient grinding methods. And if you're looking for weapons to grind, this is the current meta:
That was your complete rundown of Double XP weekends in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone, we hope it helped. Now get out there and get grinding.
