For those who purchased the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Vault Edition, it appears you now have some free XP Tokens to claim courtesy of Activision.

Early on into the highly anticipated launch of MW2, there was some major confusion about a promo concerning the "highest-tier version" of the game players can buy — the $100 Vault Edition. Before the game launched, Activision has a pre-order promo that intended to reward players with tons of XP Tokens for purchasing the Vault Edition exclusively through the Warzone, Vanguard, Black Ops Cold War or Modern Warfare (2019) In-Game Store. As you might expect, many who bought the Vault Edition outside of the game (e.g. PlayStation Store) were pretty upset, so now it appears Activision is giving the bonus to all Vault Edition owners.

Here's a breakdown of how to claim the free Double XP Tokens in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 via the Vault Edition.

Unfortunately, it appears there isn't a way to actively claim the Double XP Tokens to your account. According to Activision's statement, it seems players who have the Vault Edition but haven't yet received the Tokens may have to give it up to 48 hours for them to show up in-game. It's simply a waiting game.

To check if you've received your XP Tokens, simply head into the main multiplayer screen by choosing any of the public playlists. Next to the start button, a tile "XP Tokens" will be present if you're XP Tokens have successfully been delivered.

Per Activision, players who own the Vault Edition should be getting 10 1-hour Double XP Tokens and 10 1-hour Double Weapon XP Tokens.
