Infinity Ward has been teasing us about a Modern Warfare 3 double weapon XP event for a while now, and the studio finally decided to kick off the very first event yesterday.
“In celebration of E3, the developers are turning on Double Weapon XP for the first time ever! Rapidly level up your weapons and finally get that Extended Mags and Thermal Sight combo you’ve been waiting for,” announced Infinity Ward on Elite.
Keep in mind, you can use a prestige token to get two hours of double weapon XP, which would compound this week to net you quadruple XP for two hours. The event is now live on consoles until Monday, June 11th. Meanwhile, the PC version of Modern Warfare 3 has a regular double XP event though Monday as well.
