Best way to level up Modern Warfare 2 Rank fast

Use Double XP Tokens

Getting twice the regular amount of XP is an excellent way to rapidly advance through ranks. When completing the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, you’ll receive three hours of Double XP and an additional three hours of Double Weapon XP.

Play during Double XP events

If you’ve run out of tokens, don’t worry, as Activision consistently hosts Double XP events throughout the year. We’ll keep you informed when the next one begins.

You won’t need to do anything yourself other than log on and barrel through a ton of games of Modern Warfare 2 to maximize the opportunity during the Double XP event.

Don’t rage-quit online multiplayer matches

We know this sounds easier than it is, but the temptation to hastily leave a match when things aren’t going your way is very easy, but also very costly.

Even if you’re having a bad game or your team is getting smoked, make sure you gut it out and claim your match bonus at the end.

Play objective-based game modes

We recommend playing team-based objective modes such as Hardpoint, Headquarters, and Domination as these are great ways of earning XP as a team.

Hopping into these passive playlist options is probably more ideal than checking out game modes that require more from an individual as even if you’re not the world’s greatest Call of Duty player, you can still get XP for your efforts.

Complete challenges

From beginner challenges requiring you to get your first Killstreak to more advanced tasks like dropping 30 kills in one game for a Nuke, there is a whole range of challenges for you to complete in Modern Warfare 2.

Focusing on these challenges will earn you tons of XP so that you can level up fast, so we recommend making time for them the next time you hop into Modern Warfare 2.

Playing Invasion

A simple method that players have been incorporating into their gameplay to level up quickly and boost XP for guns is to play Invasion.

During a game, you should concentrate your fire on AI soldiers as you still get a lot of XP for taking them down. These two tactics together combine seamlessly to rack up serious scores and bundles of XP for faster ranking up.

Kill Confirmed, Dog Tags & Decoys

Another sneaky tactic you could use is the Kill Confirmed and Decoy method that allows you to build up mad XP for not even playing well.

Simply, keep throwing down Decoys around combat-heavy areas of the map and you’ll get XP from enemy players firing on them. Also, concentrate all your energy on collecting fallen opposition players’ Dog Tags.

Even if you have a bad game in terms of your kill-to-death ratio, going out of your way to collect tags will do wonders for your player level.

Play Ground War matches

To level up a gun you want a sustained match with a myriad of enemies to hunt down and kill, and Ground War ticks all of these boxes.

Big maps are littered with many enemy soldiers and you can also be earning passive XP for holding objectives, all the while capturing and defending them in the process.

How to level up Modern Warfare 2 Battle Pass fast

Buy Battle Pass tokens

The quickest option for unlocking the rewards in the Modern Warfare 2 Battle Pass is to purchase Battle Pass Tokens. Each Battle Pass Token costs 150 CoD points, and this allows you to greatly speed up the process.

You can get this done by selecting the ‘Buy Tokens’ option next to the token bank within the Battle Pass tab. While this is a costly option, it’s the fastest way to level up the Modern Warfare 2 Battle Pass.
