Playing Plunder

There's a high possibility of Plunder returning to Warzone 2 and just like its predecessor, the mode includes a respawn mechanic giving you several opportunities to earn plenty of weapon XP over the course of a match.


Dropping in and scoring kills over and over helps speed up the process alongside completing contracts which offer huge rewards including plenty of XP.

Completing contracts

Speaking of contracts, completing them is another excellent way of earning masses of weapon XP with minimal work. You can choose to take on a bounty objective but the likes of scavenger contracts work just as well. Find the three supply crates at the specified location for a quick boost and the chance to score some high-tier loot.


Does Warzone 2 weapon XP transfer to Modern Warfare 2?

Yes it does! All weapon XP earned in Warzone 2 carries over to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer which is great news if you fancy trying Infinity Ward's latest dose of multiplayer.

It's also handy for those currently ranking up the arsenal in multiplayer in preparation for dropping into Al Mazrah for the first time.
