MW3 double xp weekend also fixes matchmaking problems

Attention all Modern Warfare 3 players, as we have some good news for those of you who are struggling to rank up quick enough. Infinity Ward has announced a brand new double xp incentive for the game and it will be kicking off this weekend.

If you are trying to reach a certain prestige level in the game, there will be no better time to do so starting from Friday. We’ve noticed on Robert Bowling’s Twitter account that he has stated that the double xp will come into effect from 2AM PT.

The double xp effect will be live on all MW3 multiplayer playlists and will continue until sometime on Monday. Robert Bowling has also mentioned that the update will also improve on matchmaking as well so that is a little nice extra for those that are having problems getting into a game.

Just to point out, double xp will be going live on the PS3 and PC versions of the game as well, just in case you were presuming that this was yet another little bonus for Xbox 360 Elite members. There’s still no updates from Infinity Ward regarding the Black Box glitches that we told you about earlier this week – we’re guessing they are still working out how to fix the issues up.

The good news is that double xp will come into effect via a hot fix, meaning that you won’t have to install any sort of patch update to take advantage of the double xp. Do you now think that this weekend will see you get that elusive 10th prestige, or do you still have a long way to go?

IIt really dosnt matter, the stats are never right, count your Kills and see what it sais ING. I’ve gotten double and triple kills at beginning of the game and a lot of the time it doesn’t even go on. I’ll still have 0/ or whatever I had beforehand. The premium elite site hasn’t been fully functional since day 1. Free elite works fine on my free account. All over priced. I’m c.o.d.’d out. Saints row, skyrim, time to get down. Oh ya and almost never does the final/ game winning kill go on the stats. I had 3 yesterday,… Read more »

Super bad lag over the weekend. Also everybody is turning into super campers! People are camping like I’ve never seen before and the match making sucks. I’m not seeing the double xp like I thought there would be.

..TRUST ME…NOT HAPPENIN’!!!  Hype and Bull!!! NO DOUBLE XP and MATCHUPS are horribly weighted in favor of Prestige loading.  If you have an anything below 80, an 80 or Prestige level 1 or two, you’re getting jacked into a firefight against everything above and set up for a slaughter.
