COD Ghosts Double XP Weekend for March 2014

By Updated on

We have a heads-up for all Call of Duty Ghosts players on all platforms. Activision and Infinity Ward have announced a new COD Ghosts Double XP Weekend for March 2014, in celebration of the 2014 Call of Duty Championship.

It’s great to see that this isn’t just for Xbox players. If you have a PS3, PS4 or PC version of COD Ghosts you’ll be able to enjoy Double XP too. It starts this Friday on March 28 and will run through until Monday March 31st.

If you have been looking to reach the next prestige level in the game, you should definitely jump onto the game this weekend and take advantage of the double XP that is available across all game modes.

Those who are experts at the game can also tune into the COD Championships, which will be broadcast live on MLG.tv this Friday at 9am Pacific Time. You can also tune in directly on your Xbox 360 or Xbox One by downloading the MLG app on your console to make it easier.

So there we have it. You may have noticed a drop in server numbers recently, but you can bet that participation will be high this coming weekend.

Do you still have the urge to play Call of Duty multiplayer now, or not so much any more?

    First comment supreme ownage!!!!

    Bow down to my supremacy, and submit to my Dominance!!!!

    • J.dizzle

      Fail sauce

  • Hunter

    Is this true

  • Abner mcBeardington

    Great, so the servers will ‘ve even worse than usual on ps3, fantastic. Can’t wait to be shot by 8 prices just glitching everywhere as my hit markers don’t register. Take a year off cod and make a game you can actually be proud of , and not just keep pumping out subpar sh*t lil kid drones will buy no matter what.

    • Andrew Bliven

      Buy a PS4 already.

      • Abner mcBeardington

        Not sure how that would help, just be out 500 bucks. Sure as hell not wasting money on buying this game over again for that system. Funny how today’s society just expects consumer to fix it rather than companies listen to feedback and fix it themselves because they want to put a QUALITY product out. But all they can do is listen to ten years old whine guns are op’ed cuz they can’t hang. No wonder this country is f***ed

        • Andrew Bliven

          Okay, I just want to point this out, Activision nor IW nor Treyarch are responsible for people who choose to take advantage of these ‘problems’ in the game. The fact is that if the developers went to a stringent policy of blocking everyone who is say in the low 10% in terms of capability to keep a steady signal coming in, then eventually there wouldn’t be enough people allowed on their servers to fill one match in one game type. Rather than whining about it report the people doing it. Also PS4 is harder to hack and mod, considerably harder, that was one of the big things with the new system.

        • Abner mcBeardington

          Oh I’m aware of that, not talking about boosters, talking about the simple fact that all these companies don’t give two craps about even how lobbies can’t be set up with like connection individuals. Too busy making Michael Myers or some stupid rubbish. And I agree with ps4 being harder to hack/mod, but besides 1080 and few minor things, that’s all PlayStation did

        • Andrew Bliven

          Ummm… to give you a hair of deeper comprehension, 720p is displaying 720×1280 individual cells of information at a given frame rate, while 1080p is 1080×1920, now that actually equates to 921,600 bytes per frame v. 2,073,600 bytes per frame, so they over doubled the visual information they can present per screen, that isn’t all they did either, the processors are octocore which means they are still ahead of 90% of home computers, oh and it has a high enough flop rate that it can send one to the screen and one to the hdd for a full 15 continuous minutes. They have a pretty bomb system.

        • Abner mcBeardington

          Thanks my numerous years of programming experience needed that extra hair to comprehend. Too bad any decent gaming computer will still blow both consoles out of water for years.

        • Andrew Bliven

          Decent gaming computer=$1500
          XBOXone=$500
          PS4=$400
          Also don’t lie it is unbecoming, if you were a programmer, or at least one who deserves the title you would comprehend the true wonder of a through put that doubles your processing required for graphics while still allowing complex calculations which still don’t even put a dent in the processor on board the PS4, nor would you whine about spending $500 for a truly superior game system. But if you want me to believe you, tell me the syntax language used to program a game on any current system.

        • Abner mcBeardington

          Well I have a life outside of gaming, so all my money can’t go to new systems they come out with every 3 years. Also that computer that’s 3x as expensive will last thru two system upgrades. Lol and the language is the grade I give you for trolling …c++. Have a good day and make sure ps4 is unplugged before sticking your pecker in it😉

        • Andrew Bliven

          This is a pretty easy question to answer, a bios is what is used as the syntax language on a game system, not c++ which is their logic and calculations langauge. Building websites isn’t true programming, don’t try to intimate things that are half true and wholly trite. And in reality, the PS3 standard was around for almost 7 years and because computers have exchangeable parts the experience of awesomeness that you have on that brand new computer will degrade rapidly unless you invest an extra $1000 on periodic upgrades throughout the average life cycle of a game system which actually experiences a boost in graphical quality of the games it plays through its life cycle and adds new capabilities to the games as its programming is steadily improved on the same system. I’m not trolling, I’m pointing out uncomfortable realities that you can’t deny or refute and thusly resort to ad hominem attacks, the team that makes COD shouldn’t be held responsible for poor character of players. Shape up your capabilities to overcome the campers and leave the rooms where modders/hackers show up. Good day.

        • mark brookes

          been campers since waw and mw1 but now they add leaning round corners.. i even used to throw gas at my team mates on waw lol.. i get flashed i cant see for bout 10 secs (white screen) i see in killcam i flashed them for 2-3 secs and i need strong arm on just to throw it a decent distance.. ghost is not the same with flash, gas etc as they all seem weak.. think some comments r made by people who have played previous cods n not played ghost! im top prestige on all cods.. we used to see our connection status ie 4 green bars good 1 bar red is bad.. its like they took this away to get less complaints about connection/lag

        • reality

          your graphics dont make up for user interface simplicity, and sure as hell cant touch xbox’s online experience. to prove my point just look at mlg and how more publicized console gaming competitions are than pc, xbox being mlg’s main source of revenue. pc’s are good because you can do multiple things including gaming. so you cant compare one with the other, you need one of each. but since gaming consoles are coded and created using desktop computers its obvious which one is designed to maximum potential. dont you think if i could swap graphics cards and processors in my xbox it would be better?

        • Abner mcBeardington

          Pretty sure the simplicity of the interface someone is using is choice. As that anyone who thinks mpg means anything to someone who isn’t 12. Many have both, so they can hack/mod into consolesso I guess I agree there. Also pc users have steam, which is just about the SAME as your Xbox gold. Didn’t know I’d be arguing this sh*t forever after original post.

        • Morag

          Unless you have your Television standing on its side, 720p displays at 1280×720, and 1080p displays at 1920×1080.

        • Andrew Bliven

          Oh my, right you are, nice effort to correct a notation standard rather than provide something useful to the discussion.

        • Morag

          If you’re going to talk about aspect ratios, make sure all the info you post is the right info. I’d hate to see you think that HDTV’s use a “9:16″ ratio.

        • Andrew Bliven

          The notation is impertinent, in fact one could say that I used an incorrect notation to emphasize the comparison of American laziness with full understanding. Technically if we are calling it 720p/720i/1080i/1080p then we are incorrectly stating that the 720/1080 lines Are interlaced or progressive scan, because technically the whole 720/1080 line is shown while the 1280/1920 lines are either half displayed or fully displayed per frame. So Morag I appreciate your effort to help me achieve greater understanding, but really if the best you can do is wax pedantic and correct notations then save your breath.

        • Andrew Bliven

          One more thing, if you want halos piss poor spread maps and trash graphics as a trade off for small sometimes less amazingly matched rooms, then get an xbox and play halo. The things that COD does you couldn’t dream of for even a moment. I’m talking calculations of individual shotgun pellets over range and mechanics of contact that actually have some reality behind them. Halo may seem fine and dandy because people like to always get a hit off their bullet and like to not have a true challenge in their opponents, but the quality of that game is inferior compared to COD4:MW. So I’m fine with a few bad rooms at least I don’t have unrealistically perfect f*****g physics.

        • Abner mcBeardington

          If you’re gonna sit there and even TRY to compare this dump in a box called ghosts or I’ll go back to even blops2 to MW, YOU NEED MEDS. I hate halo btw, but I can’t sit here and pretend ghosts graphics are so great. And like all cods, where they draw the line for physics is just baffling. They may have the spread down, but someone who can knife someone running ten feet away from them and also taking bullets to the chest is a miracle of science in real life and I’d like to see it in person.

        • Andrew Bliven

          They don’t build cheating into the system, but it is a hell of a lot harder to protect against while your stack is focused on substantial things. A dude knifing that far away sounds like a throwing knife for one, which is entirely feasible. Oh and wake the f up, heard of kevlar body armor? You know bullet proof vests. Ha ha ha ha ha, you have to be kidding me, who do you program for? Some kids game for mobile platform where your job is to determine how entertaining a child would find a green caterpillar over a purple caterpillar?

        • mrbmxer41

          Lol that is false ps4 cod was jacked thé first week my connection on this game is terrible. I Can play any other game and its fine as soon as i play Coda m’y Internet is garbage so Yes sir it is thé game not thé system. They dont care about bugs they just keep pushing dlc they dont care about connections issues

        • Andrew Bliven

          It isn’t bugs, it is the fact that they are tracking hundreds of variables per individual and if you play during the height of use then you will experience issues because they try to allow for some people to have less optimal connections. The game isn’t broken it functions pretty well, as a matter of fact ghosts has bulked down on a lot of things to make the connection quandary less of a problem, for the most part all that matters is how fast the average connection in a room is, if you consistently have issues upgrade your Internet connection because you’re probably the source of the issue and are being penalized because other players don’t deserve to lose to you because you have a skimpy Internet connection that your mom and dad are constantly clogging up looking at pictures of their successful children’s progeny on Facebook.

        • mrbmxer41

          They just dont care about thé customers they care about money. Like i Saïd i Can play any other game and its fine bf4 has crazy stuff going on servers fine gta 5 crazy stuff fine cod bop2 lags when Im picking find lol. Ghost Hey Lets Not show them their connection they will think we improved hahaha. Thé difference between ps4 on this game is graphics Thats all and i remember i couldnt even play whiteout on m’y ps4 cause if thé game but i could on ps3 thé game is garbage plane and simple. But its amazing what they Can do but if they took more time this game cod be amazing

        • Brian Parsley

          shows what u know since the ps4 were already hacked and that took what 2 weeks not even

        • Andrew Bliven

          Are you talking about the fake hacks that have been proven to be fake, no one has of yet successfully hacked in a substantial manner anything that matters in terms of the PS4, some dude inadvertently got himself 20 years PS Plus membership but he won’t use even 5% of it, when they notice that the books don’t add up for his membership they will ban his ass. In fact considering the substantial prevalence of multi player and that server sided programming is becoming more favorable most of these people get banned in a few hours or a couple days if what they are doing is actually potent. Otherwise it is just face clan tags, and whiny children with jobs and bills that can’t find pride in the fact they still do decently in spite of the cheaters. Wah wah wah, quit playing games with other people on line if you don’t like it.

        • mark brookes

          contradict urself no end!! numpty

        • Andrew Bliven

          I in no way contradicted myself, PS4 didn’t even notice the blip that dude caused with the I got the BIOS to dump BS, and then making a photoshop of PSAmerica supposedly threatening him. In reality, no one is truly hacking a damp thing, hacking implies a lack of detection and Activision and Infinity Ward provide support for their servers, equalling these people not going unnoticed. Thusly they’re not creating any substantial undesired effect. A company rather than spending extra millions to develop a perfectly secure game code, can instead spend $400,000 to salary a cracked team of cheater discoverers. Better plan I say to let them get to the point that Activision and IW can ask SCEA to ban their MAC address.

      • eAbyss

        Buy a X1, it has dedicated servers.

  • jamal

    I thought it started 10am eastern time

    • ShortRound_27

      No, usually 10am pacific time, so 1pm here on the East Coast.

      • Hunter

        What about for central time.

        • Andrew Bliven

          You don’t know how to calculate your time zone off of EDT or PDT? Go to school and ask your geography or math teacher to give you a useful life skill child.

        • eAbyss

          …or simply Google it, jeez…

        • Andrew Bliven

          No do not Google it. Do not depend on some series of electrical relays that has everyone elses intelligence stored for you. Gain some of your own, so that one day if the Internet fails, you can still think. EAbyss, nobody I mean nobody, should be encouraged to use Google to get information the easy way until they have at least a minimum capability. A dog that is fed freely never learns to; hunt for its food because it does not know hunger, cherish the worth of food that it has in front of it now and take it in knowing that the next meal may be far away, and most importantly it isn’t afforded the capability to accidentally eat things that it shouldn’t to learn it boundaries and limitations. Time Zones may seem a simple enough concept, but if someone isn’t explained the reasons behind them then they lose wonder and luster and every time someone needs to know the time somewhere else they look it up rather than having an educated thought.

  • mark brookes

    rubbish game, feels unfinished as we cant video our best bits, connection laggy, designed for campers,, waw and black ops 1 is alot better games.. already 10th i play to b with my friends but give in most nights n play poker on xbox

    • xxxNomadicxxx

      That is true, this COD is Camper Heaven.

    • Andrew Bliven

      This game entirely redesigned the way that MP unfolds just as much as it is powerful for campers it is powerful for good players. If you can’t beat a camper or two you probably need to practice more or cop to the lowly tactics that can overcome them. A good canister bomb should take care of most campers favorite hiding places. Most importantly don’t compare apples to oranges WAW and Black Ops aren’t just made by a completely different design team, they are intended to use an entirely different concept as foundation for MP. Besides if you look at Activision/Infinity Ward v. Activision/Treyarch you have no choice but to accept that IW games incorporate a far greater number of people’s play styles and give them a fair shake at winning while Treyarch games are more focused at people who think that the only thing that is fair while playing is walking a mile from your spawn to find other players who are probably glitched under those poorly designed trees near the beach.

      • Abner mcBeardington

        Trollarch should never make another game again, or if do they should put warning on it that anyone can play this game and we will make all competition even even if you’re better by lag or bugs

        • Andrew Bliven

          I won’t but Treyarch games after the experience I had on WAW though I played some Black Ops I was far from impressed. The dogs thing was kind of cool but way overpowered, if I used it I felt bad, and when other people used I would just dashboard.

        • eAbyss

          At least you could kill those dogs. The ones in Ghosts take more hits to kill than players and they lunge (practically teleport) at you from over 20 feet away.

        • Humboltfro

          It takes 15 ARX bullets to kill a dog on ghosts, compared to 3 for a player and their range is just absolutely way to far.

  • mark brookes

    camping is boring… an idiot could do it (and do) tactics my a** it’s camping n now u can lean n camp wooooot! dashboard cos of dogs on waw lol.. shoot em! design team bla bla.. stop camping with ur burgers n run round with me n stab the campers in the back (unless it’s too laggy then lets dashboard it lol)

    • eAbyss

      Dashboarders are worse than campers. It shows very poor sportsmanship.

      • mark brookes

        sort the connection n i will never dashboard again,,sportsmanship pfff! i pay for xbox live, elec and the game so i will dashboard as i like, ps im awesome at all cod games since mw1 and dont dashboard cos im losing but because people camp with host connection and spray anywhere n kill u with 1 bullet while my first 3 bullets dont get a hit marker. pps its the same sad campers that look through forum comments looking for spelling mistakes :)

      • seriously

        NO, campers are the most annoying thing to ever happen to multiplayer. how about you dont sit in a corner aiming down sight all game?
