Double xp weapon level progression

Since day one of Vanguard players have voiced their frustrations with weapon level progression being too slow. As a remedy, players get to enjoy another double XP weekend.

Just as frustration seemed to be reaching a boiling point, Vanguard players will benefit from 2X the weapon XP for a brief period. Throughout Call of Duty history, double XP events were often highly anticipated moments for players to progress at a quicker pace. With Vanguard this isn’t necessarily the case.

The frequency of double XP periods may have something to do with the widespread complaints concerning slow weapon level progression. Whether this is a deliberate tactic or not, players should still make the most of this event.

Although double XP has pertained to battle pass, military rank, and weapon level in the past, this time is a little different. As of Friday, December 3 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 8 PM CEST, double Battle Pass and weapon XP will be active.

These events usually begin on Friday and last until Monday. With that in mind make sure to grind some weapon levels in the upcoming days.

For over a month now the Vanguard community has been feeling shortchanged with how slow their weapon level progression is going. Despite their frustrations, the player base has been fortunate enough to benefit from several double weapon XP periods since launch. This is highly unusual for a new Call of Duty title.

Perhaps this is Sledgehammer taking player input into consideration. There’s no denying that the devs have been generous when it comes to handing out double XP events. However, some players have noted that double XP may be slightly misleading.

Reddit user Red_Gaming_Community is convinced that players are not actually receiving 2X the XP during these events. In a video, they go on to detail how weapon XP values perform during these events. They believe that players are earning less than 2X the XP.

Ultimately, your weapons are going to progress at a faster pace when these events are active. Playing Vanguard from Friday to Monday should alleviate some frustration relating to your slow weapon level progression.
