The weekly playlist shakeup for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone is here. And due to some in-game bugs over the weekend, Infinity Ward has turned on double XP for levels, weapons, and tiers starting Tuesday, May 5, and running until Friday, May 8.

In Call of Duty: Warzone, Infinity Ward replaced Plunder Trios with Blood Money Trios — a faster-paced version of the fabulous Plunder mode, where players always drop money when you kill them. The studio also disabled helicopters in the battle royale mode.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare lost three playlists this week: GW Reinfected, Cranked 3v3 Gunfight, and Ground War. Shoot the Ship is now Shipment 24/7 and Gun Game is Gun Game Reloaded. Infinity Ward also added Demolition and Boots on the Ground War.

According to Infinity Ward, Call of Duty fans may have seen some disruption to their playtime over the weekend due to some bugs. As an apology for last weekend, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone now offers double level XP, weapon XP, and double tiers. Players can rack up the bonus XP until Friday.
