It’s back! Finally, we see the return of a double cryptokey weekend in Black Ops 3! Treyarch officially announced the new event over social media today and, needless to say, many players are stoked. In addition to double the keys players will also be able to snag double liquid divinium when playing through the zombies mode.
This event is scheduled to kick off on Friday, April 8th at 10am PDT. It will conclude at the same time on Monday, April 11th. It’s probably safe to assume that this is being dished out in celebration of the upcoming Eclipse DLC pack, but it could also be due to the pressure the community has been asserting lately about drop rates.
Recently, many players have taken to social media to create a protest against purchasing CoD Points using the hashtag #BlackMarketBlackout. The reason? Well, because they’re getting tired of spending $30, $50, even $100 or much, much more just to get ONE of the new weapons that are only available through supply drops.
Nevertheless, most people are excited that this event is taking place. This is only the second time we’ve seen Treyarch show a little courtesy to the community in terms of getting drops. There was just one other time when double Cryptokeys was available and that was months ago.
So, if you’re looking for a good chance to grab some specialist gear you don’t already have, a new camo, or one of the coveted special weapons (such as Malice, the MVP baseball bat, NX Shadowclaw, the HG-40, etc) without spending any real-life cash – this weekend is going to be your best shot.
Get out there, grind the game all weekend long, and rack up those Cryptokeys so you can open as many common and rare supply drops as possible! May the odds be ever in your favor.
