The max level you can reach in Modern Warfare 3 is 55. After reaching the final level, you’ll enter Prestige ranks and can level up further to unlock rewards like calling cards, Battlepass tier skips, and double XP tokens. Your level is shown in the top right corner of the main lobby, right above your operator; a circle in the top right corner also gives you a quick view of your progression to the next level.

While there are several strategies you can use to level up in Modern Warfare 3, I highly recommend playing War Mode, which is the fastest way to significantly increase your account level. I was also able to level up quickly by completing the weekly challenges.

How to level up fast in MW3

Here are a few ways to significantly increase your Modern Warfare 3 account level:

  • Completing challenges: Modern Warfare 3 has revamped the challenge system for daily and weekly tasks. These are usually simple to achieve, like playing matches or getting kills, and give you a lot of XP to advance fast in MW3.
  • Winning matches: Winning matches in Modern Warfare 3 also gives you a big XP bonus. You’ll receive all the XP you accumulated in the match and an extra bonus if you win.
  • Double XP Tokens: Finally, you may want to try some Double XP tokens first to level up faster in MW3. You can activate these tokens in the main MP, Zombies, or pause menu to enhance your XP or Weapon XP for a short time. The tokens expire in real-time, so make sure you turn them on when you’re sure you can play for the time of the token.
