Two Fastest Ways To Level up
[FASTEST] Leveling With Zombies (MWZ)
Note! This may be adjusted with the next patch.
What Is Modern Warfare 3 Zombies (MWZ)
In the Zombies mode (MWZ), your tasks are to explore the open world, complete contracts, and secure and extract. Search for valuable items, collect acquisitions, and work with others to complete mission objectives before you're overwhelmed.
Possible To Get Unlimited XP
Zombies will respawn endlessly at specific locations, allowing you to earn a massive amount of XP by defeating them. Depending on the weapon you use, it may take more than an hour, but with a weapon at Max Level 20, it should take around 40 minutes. Make sure to keep your weapons in the Insured Slots to avoid losing them when you die.Check Out the Details on How to Level up in MWZ!
Better To Level Up While Teaming Up With Friends
If you want to level up in Zombies mode, it's better to play with friends rather than in a random match. This is because focusing only on your own leveling during the match may lead to neglecting the mission, which can cause problems for other players.
Also, if you play solo with weapons that are not up to max level or not suitable for group fights, such as Handguns, you may have a harder time surviving the zombie hordes.
Therefore, playing with friends is advisable to ensure everyone is on the same page and you can work together to complete the mission while also leveling up.

Leveling With Multiplayer Modes
Quick Play With Playlist Filter
If you want to find a match for the game modes you wish to play, you can use the Playlist Filter feature. Keep in mind that XP tokens have a time limit, so it's advisable to select only those modes which are easy to earn points and can be finished quickly.
Domination and Hardpoint Are The BEST For Leveling
Match Time: About 10 mins
If you want to level up quickly in MW3, playing Domination and Hardpoint modes is recommended. These game modes have specific positions that are strategically placed, allowing you to earn about 200 XP for each base capture or defense. Each game mode lasts around 10 minutes so that a 30-minute token would allow for three matches.
|Details||The Auomated Computer Spike (A.C.S.) slowly captures points and temporarily hacks nearby enemy devices.|
When playing Domination, Hardpoint, and Ground War, it is recommended to choose A.C.S. as your Field Equipment. By placing A.C.S. near a specific position, you can earn XP in small increments every few seconds.
Kill Confirmed Is Also An Option
Match Time: About 10 mins
In this mode, you earn 75 XP by defeating enemies and collecting their dog tags. Enemies come to pick up the fallen tags, making it easy for you to catch them (or, conversely, easy for them to take you down). The match duration is limited to 10 minutes, so you don't need to worry about running out of time.
Hardcore Team Deathmatch For Experienced Players
Match Time: About 5 mins
The Hardcore mode is designed to offer a challenging gameplay experience with limited HUD, low health, and friendly fire enabled. Players die easily, which often results in early game endings (around 5 minutes).
However, the XP earned per kill is high, making it a time-efficient mode. If you are confident in your skills, Hardcore mode may be your best option.
Tips For When You Can't Beat The Enemy
Try To Get More Headshots
Aim for headshots whenever possible, as they can help you level up your guns faster than body shots. Use your sniper weapon to consistently get headshots to get bonus weapon XP. Using attachments like the Recon Perk to your weapon can help you aim more accurately.
Play With Friends Or Party Up Online
Playing with friends can help you get more kills and you can assist each other in completing challenges. Additionally, playing with more experienced teammates can help you win more games and, in turn, earn more XP for surviving, getting kills, and completing objectives thus making it easier to level up your weapons.
Experiment With Your Loadouts
Be sure to customize your loadouts with attachments that you unlock as you level up your weapon. Some attachments can improve the weapon's performance, making it easier to get kills.
Map Awareness Optimizes Field Equipment Placement
Gaining insight into where players are prone to move, gather or pass through helps you choose optimal spots for your field equipment's location. Knowing where the objectives are located on the map and placing equipment strategically near them can help secure control or defend against enemies attempting to capture these points. This increases the likelihood of it being triggered or deployed effectively, thus letting you earn more XP on the long run.

XP Bonuses May Also Stack
This effectively maximizes the experience points (XP) you can acquire from a single kill.
What Happens When You Earn XP?
Player Level Increases
When you earn experience points and your player level increases, you will unlock weapons and features based on your level. You can check what rewards you can obtain on the "Progression" screen.
Weapon Levels Also Increase In The Same Way
Earning experience points will also increase the level of your weapons. There are primarily two benefits to leveling up your weapons. The first one is unlocking attachments based on the weapon level. The second one is expanding the variety of attachments that can be equipped.
Unlock Weapon Attachments As You Level Up
For example, a weapon in its initial base level cannot equip most attachments, but as you level it up, you'll be able to equip attachments like Muzzle, Barrel, Optic, and more. You can check what rewards you can obtain on the Weapon Progression screen.
