In MW2, leveling up weapons fast can help players unlock the best gun attachments for their favorite weapons.
Leveling up your weapons fast in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 can help players unlock a number of key attachments for their primary and secondary weapons. As in the previous Call of Duty installments, unlocking and equipping different attachments for each firearm dramatically increases the adaptability of each gun, which can be tailored to other game modes and multiplayer maps. Additionally, players can experiment with different scopes, lasers, and magazines for each weapon thanks to MW2‘s new gunsmith progression system, with meta loadouts being far less prominent due to the game’s various customization features. While players can unlock attachments by simply using their favorite weapons in any multiplayer match, there are also several ways in which players can level up their weapons much faster.
In order to level up any weapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, players must equip and obtain kills with the primary or secondary weapon in their custom loadout. Players will earn weapon XP for every enemy player they kill in a multiplayer game with their chosen weapon, and the XP for each kill will vary depending on the current game mode. In Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer modes like Search and Destroy, players can earn a hefty 300 XP for each kill, but there are often fewer opportunities to do so due to the absence of a respawn feature. Players can also obtain weapon XP by performing tasks in objective-based modes, such as Headquarters, Hardpoint, and especially Kill Confirmed, which is one of the best modes to level up your weapons quickly in. Players can rack up many kills in each Kill Confirmed match, earning XP for each friendly or enemy dog tag they recover. These matches can often last a lot longer than other game modes, so players will be able to spend more time leveling up their guns in the game rather than waiting in pre-game lobbies.
Utilizing Multiplayer Parties and Weapon XP Tokens in MW2
Players who currently play Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with friends on a Playstation console can benefit from an exclusive significant weapon XP boost in multiplayer games. When players on a Sony console form a multiplayer party with another Playstation player, they will earn a 25% weapon XP bonus for every match they play while in that party. This party can consist of just two players, as it is not necessary to max out the party capacity to obtain this generous XP boost, which can dramatically reduce the time it takes to level up any number of weapons across the game’s various modes and maps.
The most lucrative way to level up any weapon fast in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is to utilize the game’s valuable weapon XP tokens. These tokens will grant players double weapon XP while the token remains active, which typically ranges from 15 to 60 minutes. MW2 Vault Edition buyers are entitled to a staggering 10 hours worth of double weapon XP, which will give players a significant head start in leveling up any number of primary or secondary weapons. Players can also earn double XP tokens for completing missions in the game’s campaign mode or by purchasing promotional products, such as Mountain Dew drinks.
Leveling up weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 can be time-consuming, but there are several ways to decrease the time it takes to max out the game’s best loadout options. Weapon XP tokens will dramatically reduce the time it takes to level up any gun and unlock weapon add-ons in MW2; however, these XP boosts are often scarce and directly linked to spending more money or time playing the game’s single-player campaign. Sony’s exclusive party XP boost and the Kill Confirmed game mode also provide an efficient way to level up any weapon quickly, as players who level up their weapons fastest in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be better equipped to dominate the game’s competitive multiplayer lobbies.
