Call of Duty: Warzone has now integrated with Black Ops Cold War, and while the battle royale game was supposed to keep all of its Modern Warfare content without issue, some players found that the XP Tokens they’d earned in Infinity Ward’s game were no longer usable. Those XP Tokens could be redeemed for experience bonuses, or at least they could before Warzone’s current Season One started. Not being able to use the tokens was apparently an error though now that an update for Warzone has been announced that’ll once again make them usable.
Raven Software, one of the developers working on Black Ops Cold War and a driving force behind Warzone, tweeted on Friday about the fix for the XP Tokens that’s set to be released on the same day as its announcement. Within a brief set of patch notes shared that detailed the contents of the update, Raven Software explained that the XP Tokens earned in Modern Warfare prior to the new Season One will still be usable in both Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer mode and in Warzone. Any tokens you earn from here on out during Season One can be used in Black Ops Cold War’s Multiplayer mode or in Warzone, but they can’t be used retroactively in Modern Warfare.
