MW3 has an interesting way of allocating double xp. Still expect a double xp weekend here and there, but you can also expect to dish out a hundred dollars or so for 24 hours of double xp. Infinity Wards new system of giving out double xp is through the purchase of Mountain Dew and Doritos. They have teamed up with them to supply gamers with the food they love, for a reward. As you may already know, Mountain Dew and Doritos are already sponsors of MLG, so they have been marketing to these demographics for quite some time now. You will be able to go to the store, pick up a 20 ounce Mountain Dew for 15 minutes of double xp gameplay. Please note the timer is not going to start as soon as you type in the code. The time is only in-game gameplay. Therefore you potentially could play two to three games of double xp for every 20 oz. Mountain Dew you purchase. Another thing to note is there is a max of 24 hours double xp per gamertag. Please look below for details on other Mountain Dew sizes as well as doritos.
15 minutes: 20oz Mountain Dew, 32oz or 44oz Mountain Dew (fountain drink); 2.5 oz. Doritos
45 minutes: 12-pack Mountain Dew; 11.5oz bag of Doritos (regular size)
90 minutes: 20-pack Mountain Dew; 17oz bag of Doritos (family size)
*estimated cost of 24 hours of double xp: roughly $110
This double xp gig is going to be great for all the gamers who already invest in these snacks, but what about the ones who don’t? It doesn’t seem worth it to pay an extra $110 dollars plus the $50/year for MW3 elite.
