Call of Duty Points (CP) is an in-game currency for multiplayer and Zombie modes, with which you buy various skins, cosmetics, and exclusive items. In this guide, we’ll go over all the effective ways to get them. If you’re into a multiplayer mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Black Ops: Cold War, or Warzone, then you’ll definitely find this article useful. Let’s get started!

What exactly are Call of Duty Points?

Call of Duty Points is the main currency in the game, with which you can buy cosmetic items or game add-ons (including Battle Passes). It’s estimated that the value of 100 CP equals $1. Call of Duty Points is a currency that transfers between games; if you have, 20,000 Call of Duty Points in Modern Warfare, you’ll have the same amount in Black Ops: Cold War and Warzone.

Buying Call of Duty Points with real money

You can buy points in the store for real money, and you can do it on any platform. Here are the links to each of the stores: 

The pricing is identical for each platform and each Call of Duty game and looks as follows:

  • 200 CP = $1.99
  • 500 CP = $4.99
  • 1,000  CP (+100 bonus) = $9.99
  • 2,000 CP (+400 bonus) = $19.99
  • 4,000 CP (+1,000 bonus) = $39.99
  • 7,000 CP (+2,500 bonus) = $74.99
  • 10,000 CP (+3,000 bonus) = $99.99

Tiering up in Battle Pass

Battle Pass comes out in the game every season and costs 1,000 CP. For leveling up you get various rewards, including Call of Duty Points. Is it worth investing 1,000 CP ($10) searching for more Call of Duty points? Well, if you play regularly, it’s an excellent deal. If you play infrequently, you can still earn extra Call of Duty Points as part of the Battle Pass’s free portion, so there’s no need to buy it.

An interesting fact for Warzone players — you don’t have to own any other Call of Duty games in your library to buy a Battle Pass. 

How many Call of Duty Points can you earn this way? 

You can make a maximum of 300 CP with just the free part of the Battle Pass, and that number goes up to 1,300 CP with the purchase of the extended version. Here’s an example of what that looks like in practice:

  • +100 CP (Free Tier 6)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 12)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 17)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 23)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 32)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 41)
  • +100 CP (Free Tier 48)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 56)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 66)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 74)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 82)
  • +100 CP (Premium Tier 91)
  • +100 CP (Free Tier 98)

What’s the conclusion? The Battle Pass is well worth the price, as you only need to reach Tier 74 to get the full refund. Furthermore, the Call of Duty Points earned can be spent on future Battle Passes.  

How to tier up in Battle Pass?

To level up a Battle Pass you’ll need experience points (XP); each tier requires a specific number of earned XP. If you’re interested in maximizing XP in Call of Duty then:

  • Focus on playing Multiplayer
  • Complete Challenges 
  • Play a lot during events, as this is when the special XP boost (25%/50%) is a regular thing. 

Keep track of in-game events

Another and final way to earn Call of Duty Points is to keep track of in-game events (notably free weekends). During such events, developers try to encourage players to buy the game, and so they give away a lot of free stuff, including Call of Duty Points. Sometimes just logging in or playing a multiplayer game will be enough, so it’s worth staying up to date.

Don’t look for free Call of Duty Points on shady websites

This is not a method to earn Call of Duty Points, but perhaps it might protect your wallet. 

Recently, there have been many sites on the internet that offer, for example, 1,000 CP for sending an SMS; and of course, this is a scam. We came across such sites ourselves while creating this article, and some were even promoted by paid YouTubers. Activision is not working with any website to host a Call of Duty Points giveaway. Be aware of it!

As you can see, the options for earning Call of Duty Points are limited to buying them with real money, earning them from Battle Passes, and with special events. Knowing how hard this currency is to get, spend it wisely! Regardless of which Call of Duty you play, we wish you the best of luck in your multiplayer games.
