How to use Double XP Tokens

Accessing Double XP Tokens in MW3

To use your Double XP Tokens, navigate to the Play tab in Multiplayer. If you're playing MW3 with a controller, press the left analogue stick to bring up all your available Double XP Tokens. If you're using a mouse and keyboard, click shift to access your Double XP Tokens. Now, simply pick a token and activate it!

Double XP Tokens countdown in real time, not game time, so make sure you're prepared to make full use of your bonus XP before activating a Double XP Token! You can't stack Double XP Tokens, so if the game isn't allowing you to use a token, you either already have one equipped, or it's a Double XP Weekend.

Double XP drastically impacts how fast you can rank up, level your weapons, and advance through the Battle Pass in Modern Warfare 3. Collect Double XP Tokens at every opportunity and use them when you're ready!

You can use Double XP Tokens in Zombies, too! Check out our Modern Warfare 3 homepage for features, news, and guides on Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies.
