How to get Battle Tokens in Warzone 2.0

Warzone 2.0 has shaken up the entire Call of Duty battle royale mode in some major ways. Aside from the obvious changes like the map, Strongholds, and new DMZ mode, progression has also seen some slight adjustments that will require some learning, even if you're a hardcore Warzone player. While the original had a battle pass system, Warzone 2.0 has revamped the system and introduced a new mechanic called Battle Tokens.

Difficulty

Easy

Duration

30 minutes

What You Need

  • Warzone 2.0 battle pass

  • Modern Warfare II

Battle Tokens essentially replace the normal progression model for the battle pass, making them essential for anyone who wants to make progress and unlock all the goodies on those higher tiers. This lets you decide which rewards you want to go for first, but also means you will need to gather up a lot of Battle Tokens to unlock them. Earning Battle Tokens can be a huge grind if you just play matches normally. Here are the best ways to earn Battle Tokens in Warzone 2.0.

Play short game modes in Modern Warfare II

If you also have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II then any XP you earn in those multiplayer games will also translate into Battle Tokens you can use in Warzone 2.0 battle pass. There are a few game modes here that can be completed very quickly, allowing you to grind XP at a very fast rate.

Step 1: Play Team Deathmatch. This is a very quick game mode, especially if you're skilled. The more kills you can rack up, the more XP you'll earn.

Step 2: Play Kill Confirmed. Very similar to Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed is mostly a slayer-type game, only you are able to earn a bit more XP by collecting tags as you play.

Step 3: Finally, the highest risk-to-reward game type is Free-For-All. If you're confident in your skills to reach the top three, this is an excellent way to earn XP fast.

Play battle royale and DMZ

If you only have the free Warzone 2.0, then your game types are limited to the normal battle royale and new DMZ modes. Even so, playing your cards right in these modes can net you plenty of XP to reach your next Battle Token. DMZ mode in particular has an added benefit that will help you grind in every mode as well.

Step 1: In battle royale, focus on getting a high placement with your team, but also completing missions for bonus XP on top of what you'd normally get.

Step 2: While DMZ matches typically take the longest and are very risky, it is the most consistent way you can earn Double XP tokens you can use in other modes to progress even faster. Make sure you take missions that have these tokens as rewards before entering a match.

Use Double XP Tokens

As we just touched on, Double XP Tokens are special items that, well, double the amount of XP you earn for a set amount of time. Obviously, this will drastically cut down on your grinding, however, they do come at a cost. Aside from the few DMZ missions that offer them as rewards, and some Modern Warfare II campaign missions, you're going to have to pay up to get your hands on them.

Step 1: Buy the Vault Edition. This version of the game comes with 10 hours worth of Double XP Tokens, plus 50 Battle Tokens to sweeten the deal.

Step 2: Buy select Mountain Dew products for tokens that range from 15 to 120 minutes of Double XP Tokens.

Step 3: Purchase select Jack Links products for a Double XP Token among other rewards.

Buy the battle pass

The last way, again, is for people who would rather spend some money than time progressing through the battle pass.

Step 1: Purchase the Warzone 2.0 battle pass to instantly get 20 Battle Tokens.

Step 2: Players who own the battle pass can also directly purchase additional Battle Tokens in the in-game store for 150 COD points each.

How to beat Bile Spewers in Helldivers 2

We're not saying any of the Terminids in Helldivers 2 are appealing to look at, but the Bile Spewers are disgusting even in comparison to others like the Charger. They're big, they glow green, and they vomit their deadly acid on you from surprising ranges. These enemy types tend to be easy pickings in other games, but this time around, they're one of the most deadly. Not only can their acid kill you outright if you take a full mouthful, but the Spewer itself isn't a pushover in terms of health. Like any bug, it isn't invincible and there are some tactics we have to share to help you squish this one the next time it shows up.
How to kill Bile Spewers

If a Bile Spewer rears its ugly head during a medium- or higher-difficulty mission on a Terminid planet, there are a few key tactics to remember to come out unscathed. First, and this applies to any creature you fear may projectile vomit in games or real life, is to not be in front of it. Watch for when they lurch back in preparation to spew their bile so you can dodge and dive to the side to avoid the acid.

How to change your ship’s name in Helldivers 2

The most important part of any ship has to be its name. In Helldivers 2, you're fortunate enough to get a vessel all of your own right away, meaning you need to come up with a name on the spot from the available presets. If you're unprepared, you might enter something that you end up wishing you could change, but there isn't an obvious way to edit your choice after it's been made. In other games, you might need to spend some currency like Warbonds or Super Credits to alter something like this, but that's not the case here. Once you know the trick, you can alter your ship's name whenever you wish.
How to change your ship's name

Changing your ship's name takes no time at all in Helldivers 2. Just go over to the Ship Management station on the left side of the bridge. Interact with the terminal and you will be on the Destroyer tab, which has all your ship's stats, by default. On the right, you can see the option to Change Ship Name above the Ship Log. Just press Square here if you're on PlayStation 5 or R on PC to open up the prompt to choose whichever combination of words your heart desires for your defender of Super Earth. Simply apply the changes when you're happy and get back to spreading some Democracy!
