Double XP from kills this weekend, except...

    I have upgraded weapons in the past to "store" my xp. At this point, I'm trying to get my level 13's to have decent gear while upgrading my camp at the same time.

    I want to be able to go a little further in the weekly events than +3 (I usually fail at +4 because most of the gear they use is just rare).

    Once all my camp is maxed out as far as I can go without upgrading the survivors, I'll upgrade them. I'm in no rush to the highest level.

    Is that a horrible idea?

    Not at all. I'm doing the same on my alt account. Slowly upgrading all the buildings and good weapons if I get some. Then I will upgrade level 14 weapons next and after that my survivors (currently level 13 as well).

    I upgraded survivors whenever I could...but only upgraded gear every 2-3 levels since they will be disposed soon.
    So if you're lvl 13 survivors right now but close to having lvl 14, I would upgrade good lvl 14 gear and make do with that until you can upgrade lvl 16 gear @thisdoesfine

    Shouldn´t be there a x2 on the XP reward? On the mission tab I can see it...

    @TransmuteJun Glenn's trait will only produce 2x supplies even with the 2x experience booster. Because his trait is calculated by the experience from kills and the booster doubles it after the mission is over. You'll get 4x the experience but only 2x supplies.

    I think its excellent, but only if it gives the promised 2 (2 (XP)) for the 24 hours. Especially having Maggie lead until she becomes too useless in later rounds.

    Not every update, event and change will suit everyone.

    But I think this particular event is hilarious given that it was always a possibility. I believe my exact words were " surely they would be so dumb".

    @thisdoesfine - upgrade Council of you can for more capacity. Thats what I'm doing later today (even though I can do training ground/workshop).

    When maxed out, if you have no survivors to train, at this point in the week toy may as well upgrade something. By the time its finished you'll be maxed out again.

    Thanks, I had no idea! I've never used Glenn with 4X XP...

    On double kill weekends Glenn's trait gives double supplies (since the kill XP is doubled the moment it's dead the supplies given by Glenn is based off that number)



    Using the booster this weekend will give 4x XP on kills and 2x XP on everything else (except retiring survivors as that hasn't worked since 2.5)



    Hope this helps.

    It does not appear that Glenn is doubling the tomatoes. The double XP graphic in game shows the doubling of XP *after* the bonus is computed.
    Also, it doesn't appear that the scrapping is being doubled either. Is that as intended?

    @IRONDee

    You are confusing two different things.

    The double XP from the free gift or purchased booster does apply after the mission, as you stated.

    The double XP for kills weekend event applies at the time of the kill and is reflected on the screen at that moment. Glenn's bonus is calculated based on xp per kill and does in fact apply with this weekend event. This is also seen on screen at the time of the kill.


    If you are using the double XP booster (purchased or free gift), it will apply to your scrapped equipment but is not displayed as double on the scrap screen. You can easily check this by looking at your total XP before and after scrapping. At item that displays 4000 XP scrap value will yield 8000 XP increase in your total despite only showing 4000 on the scrap screen.

    Awesome event together with the 2x booster. Saves me a lot of grinding.

    bump...

    Don't forget what Daryl taught us....

    "On double kill weekends Glenn's trait gives double supplies (since the kill XP is doubled the moment it's dead the supplies given by Glenn is based off that number)

    Using the booster this weekend will give 4x XP on kills and 2x XP on everything else (except retiring survivors as that hasn't worked since 2.5)
