Yes, you read that headline correctly – this weekend marks the first time that players will be able to rack up double the normal amount of Cryptokeys in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Treyarch broke the news just a few hours ago via Twitter.

Black Ops 3 2x Cryptokey Weekend

 

The new event begins tomorrow morning (1/15) at 10am PST and will end on Tuesday, January 19th at the same time. So not only are players getting bonus keys, but the event will go on longer than most, extending past the typical Monday cut off.

So, if you’re looking to purchase some common or especially rare Supply Drops soon – this weekend is definitely the time to play so that you can earn enough of the in-game currency to spend in the Black Market, perhaps several times over if you have enough time to invest in playing this weekend.

NOTE: This only applies to next-gen consoles (PS4 / Xbox One) and PC due to the fact that the Black Market does not exist on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 versions of the game.
