in the Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, you are only as good as the weapon you wield. Similar to its predecessor, your performance depends on your weapon’s attachments, which you earn by earning XP. In this part, leveling up weapons can feel like a grind, which means you need to find an effective way to farm XP. Thankfully, there are several useful ways to earn Weapon XP that will help you earn all attachments quickly.
Here’s how to quickly upgrade your weapons Warzone 2.0.
Complete Safecracker contracts
Safecracker contracts are similar to Scavengers from the original war zone, where you have to visit three locations to collect loot. In this entry, instead of opening chests, you have to blow up safes with C4, but the premise remains the same. The beauty of this method is that it’s usually a safe (pun very intended) way to gain XP. Thing is – the Contracts seem to offer a stacking multiplier, meaning you get more XP for every additional Contract you complete. It’s unclear if this works as intended, so we should assume it’s a bug that’s being patched. Complete as many of these Safecracker Contracts as you can to collect loads of XP and cash.
Purchase items from the Buy Station
Speaking of cash, another nifty one Warzone 2.0 Feature is that you get weapon XP for buying items in the store. So if you combine this with the previous method of completing Safecracker contracts to get cash (and of course XP) you will have enough money to buy many items in the store. The most effective way to spend your money is to buy Armor Plates as they are an unlimited resource and only cost $400. So if you’ve completed several Safecracker contracts and also collected cash in the process, you should have enough money to buy lots of armor plates. The more you buy, the more Weapon XP you get, so keep that in mind.
Play Shoothouse in Modern Warfare II
You must be familiar with both of the above methods Warzone 2.0, which can be daunting, especially for newbies. If you want to get a feel for how movement and gunplay work, your best bet is to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare IIsince it shares a motor with Warzone 2.0 — specifically the new Shoothouse playlist, which is a smaller map. This makes it easier to get into lots of skirmishes, with the potential to rack up lots of kills in each match. Of course, the more eliminations you earn, the more XP you get. The caveat is that Modern Warfare II is not free. So if you don’t want to spend money, you should skip this method.
Eventually you can jump in DMZ to earn Weapon XP efficiently by defeating AI and completing mission objectives. This isn’t the fastest way to earn XP, but it can be more consistent than playing Battle Royale, especially if you’re a new player. Dip your toes in DMZ is an effective way to learn, and the XP you earn is enough to try this mode. Just make sure you don’t lose the weapon you’re trying to level up.
