How to earn free rewards in MW3 & Warzone True Legends event

Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone players can earn free True Legends rewards simply “by playing the game and earning XP.” In the blog post announcing the event, the devs explained that picking up XP in matches will unlock a new Tier, with each Tier containing a free item.

Bonus XP can also be earned by equipping the Koa King Operator, who features in the Warrior Pack and will be available to buy from the in-game store during this event. This new Operator is inspired by Benjamin F., a Samoan Navy Seal who served in Europe, Africa, Afghanistan, and Iraq over a 16-year career.
