Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been out for a while now, but the demand for double XP tokens hasn’t let up.

For those new to the game, XP or ‘Experience Points’ are earned while you play – usually when you rack up kills or win a match.

There are two types of XP in Modern Warfare 2, weapon XP and overall XP – we’ll go into the differences later on.

When the game launched, there were a number of promos that gave Modern Warfare 2 fans a chance to rack up some easy Double XP. While a majority of those are now finished (we have highlighted the one still live), there are still a couple of quick ways to get tokens.

MW2 Double XP tokens do exactly what they say on the tin – give you twice as many experience points, which ultimately allows you to level faster and unlock more attachments, weapons and more.

Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about getting double XP tokens in Modern Warfare 2 – from picking up promotional codes and completing the campaign, to quick hacks and easy ways to grind out weapon XP fast. Let’s kick off.

  • Complete the campaign
  • Buy the battle pass
  • Participate in promotional campaigns
  • Buy the Endowment Bundle from the store
  • DMZ Faction missions
