Gifting the Battle Pass is as simple as it sounds, but Call of Duty has details on exactly how it’s done for those unsure. Firstly, you must make sure you purchase the Battle Pass as a gift, which is done through the companion app:

“Battle Pass Gifting is where you can give friends the incredible value of the current season’s Battle Pass via the Call of Duty Companion App. Upon gifting your friend a Battle Pass, they will visit the Battle Pass tab in-game and redeem their gifted Battle Pass Token. This unlocks Tier 0 of that season’s Battle Pass and gives them the opportunity to earn all 100 Tiers of content, such as Weapon Blueprints, Operator Skins, and more.”

One small detail players must have completed before using the Battle Pass gifting system is the two-factor authentication. Make sure this is turned on before you try to purchase the Battle Pass as a gift. Although it is recommended, the giftee does not need to have this step completed to redeem the Battle Pass.

It is also important to note that there is a gifting limit of three Battle Passes per day, and “the gifter and giftee must be Activision friends for at least seven days for the Battle Pass Gift to work.”

There you have it. That’s how you can gift the Battle Pass in Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. For more, check out our recent article on Warzone’s ping mechanic nerf in Season 3.
