In a rather unusual exchange on Twitter, a fan pointing out that he’s not receiving double XP this weekend in Call of Duty: WWII was told by Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey that the game is actually offering 3XP.
You’re right, it’s not. We accidentally triggered 3XP. So grind while you can this weekend while it’s on. Monday AM it goes back to normal.

Many took this response as sarcasm, especially since the initial complaints have been about receiving less than 2XP. Turns out, Condrey wasn’t kidding. When Redditors reacted to his tweet, Condrey wrote:
No sarcasm in my response. We launched with 2XP active, unintentionally. Everyone was getting 2XP since 11/3 and up until we made the playlist change late Thursday night, which effectively launched 3XP.
Come Monday, when we turn off the XP bonus, it will effectively revert to what we should have had at launch (aka 1XP).
So early players, you got a huge head start.
PS. Positive intent is the spirit of life. Keep it classy, Reddit.
Fans aren’t happy about this, however. Many have pointed out that Call of Duty: WWII is quite stingy with XP bonuses and are worried that they will have to grind excessively starting Monday.
If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: WWII, let us know what you think of this.
