Eating food and drinking liquid that is mostly bad for you and generally not very appealing to begin with could be your key to leveling up faster in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Because it is 2018 and This Is How Things Work Now, a number of retailers and restaurants have partnered with Activision for double XP promotions for the newest Call of Duty.
In the United States, retail juggernaut Walmart and others are selling Monster Energy drinks that come with codes for double XP. Buying the 4-pack gets you one hour of double XP, while those who buy the game and the energy drink pack get “MEGA XP,” which gets you two hours of double XP. The Monster Energy drink campaign is also available in the UK.
If you’d rather eat food to level up faster, you can buy specially marked Pringles to earn double XP. One can of Pringles gets you a code for 15 minutes of double XP.
Outside of food and drinks, Walmart is selling Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 hats, shirts, and sweatpants, as well as a McFarlane action figure, that also give you double XP. And as mentioned, everyone who buys Black Ops 4 at Walmart on any platform gets double XP for two hours.
In Australia, the burger chain Hungry Jacks is selling a “BLACK whOPPER” that comes with double XP for Black Ops 4. This is a limited time offer, and it may not be available at every location.
Black Ops 4 is out now; you can read our early review impressions for our thoughts. The game is the first entry in the mainline series that lacks a traditional single-player campaign. In its place are story-driven individual missions that each focus on one of Black Ops 4’s multiplayer Specialists.
Black Ops 4 also introduces the brand-new battle royale Blackout mode, which is Call of Duty’s response to Fortnite and PUBG. Similar to those games, up to 100 players are dropped onto a map–the largest in Call of Duty’s history–and they fight until one player is left alive.
What’s more, Black Ops 4 brings back the fan-favourite Zombies mode, which developer Treyarch created. You can play two separate storylines in the mode, one called Aether that follows the Zombies storylines from past Black Ops games and a second, called Chaos, which features new characters Scarlett, Stanton, Diego, and Bruno.
