Call of Duty Black Ops 4 fans should dust off their copy and bring out the console this weekend because Treyarch has enabled Double XP and double merits.
Specifically, Blackout and Multiplayer modes will be eligible for the double experience and merit points. For those who were thinking about and grinding out to late game but didn’t really want to put in the effort, now is a good time to do so. Treyarch has announced at the double XP and double merit weekend has started in the latest entry to the Black Ops series and players will be able to level up crazy fast.
However, it is just this weekend and you’ll have to grind it out in order to take advantage of the double experience. As in, right now. You want to stop reading this article and fire up your copy. Zombies won’t have the double XP or merit- only Multiplayer and Blackout.
The double XP does also affect the games relatively new weapons, such as the MKII guns which give an extra 25% XP boost when being used. I guess they’re trying to encourage new players to try out the new weapons to find a new favorite. During this weekend, that extra 25% will be increased to 50%. And that’s just for using the new MKII guns.
Just like other previous double exp weekends, you’ll be able to do this until Monday, April 1st at 1 p.m. Eastern. So you should probably start playing if you want to get as much play time in as possible.
In other BO4 news, Activision has partnered with Twitch to bring an exclusive free content bundle that Twitch Prime members will be received. Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is the latest entry to the Black Ops series and is the first game to feature no single player campaign mode and the first one to have a battle royale mode.
Of course with other games out right now such as Apex Legends which is free, Blackout has suffered in some way a loss of its user base. The game will have to remain updated in order to stay competitive. Treyarch doesn’t seem to be skimping on that, as a few days earlier they just released update 1.16 which added a brand new zombies map.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is currently available for the Xbox One PC and PS4. You can pick up a copy for cheap if you know where to look. The game has been out for a while and you can often find discounts on this game. You can also buy just the multiplayer and blackout mode if you’re not a fan of zombies for a discounted price using the Activision-Blizzard game launcher.

I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I’m just your typical consumer who has some opinions to share. I’ve been reviewing games since I was 12. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist. Then I went to online VoDs, which I’ve lost interest in.
And now I’m here to deliver my thoughts in written format!
