How to Get CoD Points
Towards the end of 2015, it was announced that CoD Points were to be introduced to Call of Duty, providing an in-game currency which can pick up Supply Drops for online multiplayer and Zombies. In-game currency has always been a contentious issue in gaming, though as Activision have said in the past, COD Points do not affect core progression in Multiplayer or Zombies. They’re used to pick up great in-game items while also providing some more options, as will be detailed later on.
Here, we’ll have a quick look at CoD Points, going into further detail as to what they are, how you can get them, and what they can be used for.
Do you regularly pick up CoD Points? What’s the best or rarest item you’ve picked up so far?
What Are CoD Points?
Call of Duty Points, otherwise known as CP or CoD Points, are in-game currency within Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare for both online multiplayer and Zombies. They’re used to pick up Supply Drops, providing various in-game items.
- Specialist Heads and Bodies
- Weapon Camos
- Attachment Variants
- Calling Cards
- Emblems and Decals
Common Supply Drops and Zombie Crates give you a slight chance at the rare, legendary, and epic items, while Rare Supply Drops will guarantee at least a rare item, with the chances of a legendary or epic item being increased. CoD Points are available for users on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The common drops can be claimed by using Cryptokeys - these can be earned over time by playing online.
A Rare Supply Drop for online multiplayer is 30 Cryptokeys or 200 CP, while In Dr. Monty’s Factory (Black Ops 3), you can buy Vials with Call of Duty Points, also costing you 200 CP. You can also use points to pick up extra Create a Class slots, with 300 CP giving you 5 extra classes.
How Do You Get CoD Points?
So, how exactly can you pick up CoD Points? You can buy them from the in-game store - this can be found by selecting Store in Multiplayer or Zombies mode, and then navigating to the COD Points section. There currently isn’t a limit to how many CoD Points can be purchased - here are the blocks in which they can be bought on Playstation and Xbox:
In terms of free CoD Points, you can claim 200 points free of charge when you log into the game for the first time. It’s not much, and is used as more of a hook to draw people into picking up more points considering what you can get with them.
Aside from that, you’ll have to purchase them. In terms of external resources, you can pick up Cryptokeys - used to unlock the supply drops - for Black Ops 3.
One particularly interesting item to note with points/keys is that they transfer over from Black Ops 3 to Infinite Warfare, and you can even use them in either game, giving you a bit more value out of your points, which is great.
Are CoD Points Worth It?
CoD Points and the resulting Supply Drops won’t necessarily give you an edge when it comes to online multiplayer as the items you’ll pick up are more collectible/aesthetic. The improved selection of Create a Class slots will absolutely prove to be helpful, providing you some more versatility when you’re mid-match and need to switch things up.
When it comes to Zombies, considering you’re battling the undead masses and not other people, you will get an edge by picking up CoD Points and supply drops, helping you to improve your chances of succeeding and generating more powerful weaponry, pushing you further up the leaderboards.
