Cross Progression

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is all about ranking up and unlocking everything there is available to be the most successful in your lobby.

We are talking about 50 plus attachments across all the Guns, Perks, Kill Streaks and so much more. But the main focus is on those attachments, as they can really make or break whether you get your first Nuke… or die out of spawn.

Do you want to get into the campaign and play Spec Ops before multiplayer, but not get left behind? Not to worry. In this year’s Call of Duty there is Cross Progression; what does this mean? You can level up in the campaign which then counts for multiplayer, and this is the same for all over game modes.

Make sure you bear this in mind, so if you are getting fed up with one mode or the other, switch it up, rather than just turning it off, because all progression counts!

Doritos and Mountain Dew

If you’re left wondering what both Doritos and Mountain Dew have with ranking up fast in Call of Duty, wonder no more.

Call of Duty have partnered up with both brands for 2XP. If you buy the COD themed version of these, then you will receive a code for double XP. Usually the bigger the bag/bottle then the longer you will receive of 2XP.

However, there are limitations when it comes to using the codes for 2XP.

These are that each player has a daily amount of one hour and a maximum of 40 hours across its lifetime. So before you go buy a shed load of Doritos, remember that you may not need them all!

This may seem like an obvious tip, however, in Call of Duty Modern Warfare there is a lot more depth to earning XP through challenges.

  • Daily Challenges
  • Challenge Missions

Daily Challenges are very short objectives which are achievable in one play session, which will allow you and your friends to earn extra XP from being completed.

Challenge Missions are a step up from the Daily Challenges, which are multi-step objectives, which not only give you extra XP but also unlock other rewards.

Completing these will put you in the top bracket of levels and XP.

  • CAMO Challenges

That’s right, each gun will have a huge supply of unlockable Camos, and getting these will therefore give you an XP boost.

Make sure that you are keeping on top of all 3 of these Challenge variants to be the highest level you can be!

Search and Destroy

Search and Destroy (SnD) is the way forward! This is because it gives you more XP per kill and if you are a decent player then gaining multiple kills shouldn’t be a difficult task.

If you are a new then SnD may not be the lobby for you as you only have one life each round. If you want the best chances of surviving and gaining kills, you are best off heading towards the A bomb which isn’t central in the map.

Cyber Attack

Oh, and be sure to check out the Cyber Attack mode, where frags in this no-respawns round-based game will give you a huge 500 exp for a kill.

Down a couple of enemies and you’ll be making 1000 experience points every few minutes. That’s the same as 20 kills if you were playing Domination.
