Ahead of XDefiant Season 1‘s release, players are hard at work grinding to unlock the best weapons and meta attachments. To help ease the pain, the devs have announced a new Double XP event, offering faster progression for a limited time.

Here’s when the next XDefiant Double XP event arrives and how long it’ll run for.

XDefiant Double XP event start date & time

The fifth Double XP event gets underway on Friday, June 28, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. Ubisoft announced the date through the official XDefiant account on X.

When does Double XP event end?

The Double XP event ends on Monday, July 2, 2024, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. This gives you four days to grind and unlock the attachments you’ve been eyeing up before the progression returns to normal.

Don’t worry, though, this is unlikely to be the last time that one of these events takes place, as other FPS titles, including MW3 and Warzone, hold them regularly.

Double XP event explained

Double XP events offer Double Weapon and Doube Battle Pass XP. This means that the rate at which your guns and Battle Pass level up increases dramatically, but the speed of player progression remains unchanged.

It’s also worth noting that Double XP Boosters stack during the event. All players were awarded five free tokens when the game launched, so using these throughout the weekend will essentially grant 4X weapon and Battle Pass XP for the 20 minutes they are active.

It isn’t clear at the time of writing how often Ubisoft plans to hold these Double XP weekends, but we expect them to take place fairly regularly. Only time will tell if future events will also offer boosts to player XP as well, especially once Season 1 adds more content.

These Double XP events are the perfect time to start leveling up your guns and unlocking attachments, so make sure to check out our guides on the best loadouts for meta options like the M4A1, ACR 6.8, TAC-50, and MP7.
