Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Player Discovers Ridiculous Exploit To Farm XP

Jump into the fun while you can.

Let’s face it. We’ve all tried some odd stuff in multiplayer games, given the creative freedom that some titles offer to us. However, some of our random efforts can offer beat fruit at times — to one’s surprise — and actually offer a profitable return. 

Such is the atypical story of one Redditor who has managed to discover a neat exploit for raking in heaps and heaps of XP points in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Provided how competitive the title can be in ranked match-ups, everything goes when it comes down to leveling up.  

Apparently, there’s a remarkably simple idea to follow here that will allow you to level up faster than regular means. Easier said than done though, there’s still a fair amount of effort involved when you’re tasked with hopping on top of a tank and dropping down a Suppression Mine on it. 

The Rundown: 

  • A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 player has shared a trick on Reddit that allows them to gain XP quickly and level up accordingly.
  •  The gist of it is that you get on top of a tank, an APC (Armored Personnel Carrier), or any other heavy vehicle and make a suppression mine land on it. Flee the scene as soon as you’ve done that and enjoy all those free XP points.
  • Don’t hold your breath with this XP-making glitch though. Hacks and tricks such as these are quick to be patched out of the game.

Modern Warfare 2 has been killing it lately, being the most successful Call of Duty release on Steam with the highest concurrent player count. Although the famed first-person shooter has been met with its fair share of criticism, the title is still doing pretty exceptional. 

As one gets into the multiplayer segment of the game more and more, it gets harder to level up once you start matchmaking with skilled experts. In cases like those, anything will go when it boils down to getting XP, even if you have to get on top of a tank and start farming all those experience points.

One Redditor going by the username of u/Ikcatcher has shared on the Modern Warfare 2 subreddit, saying “If the game doesn’t want to be generous with weapon XP, I’m going to look for easier options.”

The person involved then proceeds to share a video clip where their character is just standing but seem to be getting XP after XP for “Enemy Suppressed.” Check out the footage below and take a look at the affair yourself.

Accoridng to the footage and the novel trick that Ikcatcher has just employed, the in-game character just made a total of 4160 XP in a span of a few seconds. Fortunately, a good Samaritan in the comments section has shared as to how exactly a hack like this can be pulled off. 

It is dangerous, but the affair is definitely worth it. The top comment on the original thread says, “Get a Suppression Mine on an enemy tank/APC.” The comment sparked a discourse in the section, with people genuinely wanting to verify the authenticity of it, so they could try the exploit on their end as well.

Many people confirmed that the trick is still working to date. It’s a pretty solid method to rank up your weapons faster to unlock their relevant attachments and specc them out.

However, make sure that you’re placing the Suppression Mines directly on top of the turret ring, which is basically the opening of the tank from where the player enters the vehicle. Give it a shot and then let us know whether the effort bore any fruit in the comments section down below.

Oh, and in case you missed recent Modern Warfare 2 news, let us get you up to scratch. People have been scalping the Burger King DLC XP boost and Operator Skin on eBay, primarily for those regions where the promotional event was not introduced.
