It’s no secret that there are weapons in Supply Drops in Call of Duty: WWII. While there are some unique ones like the Sten, and other guns that can be obtained just via Supply Drops, there are also a lot of “variants” of weapons available in the base game that look different than their counterparts, and give added XP bonuses.
Epic variants give a 10 percent XP buff, while “Heroic” ones give 15 percent — at least that’s what we thought. A new video has been posted by YouTuber SOur where he did a few tests on base weapons and their variants.
Important to note: SOur tested it across different weapons thanks to a bunch of willing volunteers. In short: Heroic variants only gave 10 percent XP, which is the same as the Epic variants. Where did the five percent XP go? I have no idea. This experiment has been tested on PlayStation 4, Xbox One.
If that wasn’t enough, here’s the kicker: using the Division’s ability (suppressor for SMGs, etc.) will mean that you won’t get bonus XP at all! You get the medals that say you got bonus XP, but it doesn’t really show up in your actual score. Check the video above for the full explanation, but yeah, it’s a bit wonky and just flat out weird.
Will Sledgehammer Games reward gamers with the left out XP? Chances are, they won’t. But let’s hope this is fixed soon come 2018.
