How to get double XP in Modern Warfare 2
Double XP Tokens are consumable items that you can activate to receive x2 XP for each objective, kill, and match you complete. Playing each mode correctly, such as going after the objective above your own personal KD ratio, will allow you to gain more player XP in the long run, and having double the XP active while playing well results in your ranking going up faster .
Dual Weapon XP Tokens are another consumable item that will grant you x2 XP for the specific weapons you are using, unlocking special attachments and other weapons.
Both Double XP tokens only last a certain amount of time, usually 30 minutes or an hour, which takes up real time, not game time. So get ready to play as much as you can while a token activates to make the most of it!

How to use double XP tokens in Modern Warfare 2
If you have a token burning a hole in your operator’s pocket, you will first need to enter the multiplayer game mode to use it.
Any multiplayer game mode from the main menu will do, but it’s best to enter the mode you want to play next to save some time after activating a token.
Once you are in the multiplayer game mode, before entering the matchmaking lobby, you should see “XP Tokens” next to the option to start matchmaking.
To use an XP token in Modern Warfare 2, click “XP Tokens” in this menu and then consume any tokens you wish to use next. The green tokens are for dual player XP, while the orange tokens are for dual weapon XP.
I hope you’re enjoying multiplayer in Modern Warfare 2!
