How to Earn Weapon XP Fast in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (CoD: MW3)
Tips to Level Up Weapons Fast
Stack as many kills and assists as you can during matches.
The best way to level up weapons fast is to score as many kills and assists as you can in any game mode using a specific weapon. Try to spend time farming weapon XP in Playlist game modes that let you take down enemies back-to-back.
Play Ground Mode matches to farm weapon XP quickly.
Ground Mode is arguably the best mode to level up weapons fast, owing to the sheer number of targets you can down compared to any other format on the playlist. The more opponents present in the match, the easier it is to engage in firefights within the game mode’s duration.
Use Weapon XP Tokens.
You are granted increased weapon XP gain for a fixed duration by using Weapon XP Tokens obtained throughout the game. To make the most out of these consumable items, be sure that you are able to play sessions for an extended period.
Note that activating XP bonuses using tokens cannot be undone so be careful when using them to avoid wasting any of the valuable items.
Play on double XP events (weekends and special events).
As the name suggests, double XP events let you earn twice the amount of weapon and player XP for kills and various actions during matches. The limited-time bonus XP gain occurs during Double XP Weekends and special events announced from the game’s official channels.
Double XP events are essentially the best time to farm weapon XP so be sure to not miss out on playing to gain as many levels as you can you for any of your favorite armaments in the game.
Do Double XP Effects Stack?
Double XP Tokens do not stack with each other (to be confirmed).
While yet to be confirmed, it is expected that Double XP Token effects will not stack with each other in the game, preventing you from temporarily gaining 4X Player XP (Double Player XP Tokens) or 4X Weapon XP (Double Weapon XP Tokens).
Double XP Tokens do not stack with Double XP Weekends (to be confirmed).
The effects of Double Player XP Tokens and Double Weapon XP Tokens are also not likely to stack during Double XP Weekends. This means that it is also not possible to get a quad multiplier on player or weapon XP gain at any point in the game.
Benefits of Leveling Up Weapons
Unlocks new weapons and weapon attachments.
Leveling up gives you access to new weapons and weapon attachments to use during matches. More options also lets you experiment with different loadouts until you find one that is most comfortable for each type of game mode.
