You may want to know how to get Double XP Tokens in MW2, as they allow you to earn even more experience for levelling up your rank and your weapons while playing.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 has the occasional Double XP weekend where players can reap the rewards of more experience. However, these are few and far between, meaning you'll need other ways to quicken the time it takes to rank up and get attachments for weapons.

So, here's our primer on how to get Double XP Tokens in MW2, which involves farming the campaign.

  • Make sure you also take a look at our MW2 weapon tier list, so you know which weapons to use your double XP with.

If you don't want to spend any of your hard-earned money, then playing through the campaign is your only free option for securing more Double XP Tokens.

Only a select few of the 17 total missions offer these tokens, but playing through the whole campaign can easily be done in one afternoon.

Some of the XP tokens are for general experience, which affects your rank, while others are for weapon experience, giving you more options for attachments and camos.

Here are the missions that reward Double XP tokens in MW2:

  • Wetwork - Double XP Token
  • Tradecraft - Double Weapon XP Token
  • Close Air - Double XP Token
  • Hardpoint - Double Weapon XP Token
  • El Sin Nombre - Double XP Token
  • Dark Water - Double Weapon XP Token
  • Hindsight - Double XP Token

If you've already finished the campaign, replaying these missions won't offer you additional tokens. If you've already used them up, your only other options are to wait for the next Double XP weekend, or purchase tokens from the store.

For players who pre-ordered the Vault Edition of Modern Warfare 2, you should have 10 hours worth of Double XP Tokens to use if you haven't already.

There was also a Burger King promo during launch that could net you Double XP Tokens by purchasing a specific meal, though these codes have likely expired by now. It's worth trying if you have any lying around though.

That's all for our explainer of how to get Double XP Tokens in MW2, and now you know the only free way to gain more tokens is by playing specific campaign missions.

We also cover how to Prestige in MW2, which lets you show off your time and effort with a special Military Rank.
