    XP amounts for scrapping need to be reworked across the board - they don't make sense (ie. too low) next to end-of-mission unlocked crate amounts.
    Back from 2016 :p

    Word on the street is that XP from scrapping IS doubled (the doubled amount goes in your bank) even though the amount displayed in the scrapping screen is NOT shown as doubled. Can someone confirm? If true, I'm very sad to have started scrapping without an XP boost after folks reported that it wasn't doubled.

    Can someone test and verify? Please feel free to shower me with gifts for the hundreds of thousands of XP I just saved you. :-P

    You are absolutely correct once!! I actually pulled the trigger this time on the scrap...the scrap amount showed as approx. 500K but over 1 million XP got deposited.

    Not sure if this is glitch or legit but we'll take it...good looking out!!

    I think you'll find the same is true for retiring survivors as well.

    Yeah it is...same thing as the gear...it doesn't reflect the proper amount on the retire screen but you DO get double

    Would love to know if what @Bill_ZRT and @SlickRick are seeing is a bug (and will be removed soon) or if it intentional.

    @SlickRick

    double XP scrapping XP for al scrapped gear in your inventory? So for both upgraded and not upgraded gear. With or without the XP on double?

    The booster works with BOTH upgraded and non-upgraded gear

    The amounts are not reflected properly on the scrap screen but you definitely get double whatever the scrap screen amount shows

    I did this too, I scrapped more than 100 items, thinking that we will never get another 2x scrapping event, that hurts:(

    Thanks for the heads up Slickster, and a general thanks to all posters here for info regarding update. I always like to check in with the early-adopters before I even get the update ;)

    @Boruto

    Once you have the update downloaded and installed just go into where you buy gold or a bundle and you'll see Double XP for $2.99...you just buy it the same way and it will be activated for 24 hours with a countdown timer near your XP total.

    Just read my warning above on the visual bug before you scrap gear or retire survivors...and have fun with it...it's awesome!!

    I am really liking these upgrades.
    The brighter colors don't bother me, the darker maps might be a little dark for my tastes but the XP booster is awesome.
    Really nice job on this update @Teeceezy @TK-421 @eetu

    So they aren't banning auto clickers, but they made them USELESS! Great work NG

    Yes...aside every handworking farmer...congrats!
    So they try to nerf the one way to gain XP that doesn't involve mind numbing mission repetition and/or coughing up that RL$ for gold and replace it with a gas booster you have to pay cash for without addressing the insane XP costs for leveling up or the even more insane gold costs to bypass (4000+ gold, aka $40+ to raise ONE level on a survivor/item that will eventually get replaced? I don't think so!) ... and we cheer this?

    So we don't care if the game actually gets better or is ... you know, FUN ... just as long as other people are denied access to methods you prefer not to use yourself. And do, pray tell, enlighten me as to how it is "cheating". I was doing farming while on long drives just by setting the phone on the arm rest and holding my finger over the button, tapping my finger once a second. Get a rhythm going and you do it without even thinking about it.

    If they go ahead and implement the 75 kill limit without also drastically reducing XP/gold costs ... we're talking divide them ALL across the board by at least 15 or 20 ... then I think I will be done with this game. And yes, I've been buying packages until Maggie's and the one before it because they weren't worth it but that last Scout one for $2.99 was good.

    But if they think this will get more people to buy gold ... or even those boosters, then I think they fail to understand that some people just can't afford to throw away that kind of money on a game, something we do for recreation.

    I've got plenty of games on my Steam list I picked up on sale and never got around to playing, and tons of actually free games in the Android store for my phone. I am nobody's cow to milk, thank you very much.

    [edit] correction/clarification - I meant to refer to reducing gold cost by 15-20x or better, XP cost would only need a 5x reduction or so to be reasonable. Existing levels could almost be tolerable if I was guaranteed a free set of unlocks for watching an ad on EVERY box, not just the first 5 or 6 per day, and reduce the cost of that final set of unlocks to 5 or 10 gold.

    FYI important for everyone regarding the double XP booster and scrapping gear/retiring survivors:

    There is a visual bag not showing the double XP amount when you are scrapping gear or retiring survivors...this is very important to be aware of so you don't scrap stuff and go over your max allotment of XP

    For example my max XP is 2,000,000...I had a gun to scrap that said would give me approx. 500K in XP...the actual TRUE amount of XP received when the booster is on is approx. 1,000,000...so I need to make sure my XP is not currently over 1,000,000 or else I will hit my max and lose wasted XP

    I feel like this is a PSA but I don't want anyone losing XP they deserve because of the visual bug...best wishes!!

    Maybe they don't deserve it because its a bug and they didn't want to double that.

    @Bill_ZRT @SlickRick

    On behalf of my 5 guilds and myself , thank you very much! You saved us millions in what would have been lost xp for those that hadn't sold their upgraded gear yet. Every once in a while you find a little gem in all the rock rubble that these forums can be...

    Cheers Guys

    @shabba

    Yeah that's a possibility of course...but the info would have gotten out anyways and I felt it was better to warn people as soon as possible so they wouldn't lose unnecessary XP

    I hope this is permanent though and it would make sense for it to be...but until one of the mods weighs in no way to know for sure

    I foresee people getting screwed because they called a survivor and want to keep who answered but their roster is full so they have to retire someone first but they were stockpiling XP for a top end (for them) survivor/item.

    Hopefully the devs can make the same change that was made to gas (had that kick in this morning ... thank you! no more wasted gas due to gas rewards on first mission!) to XP as well, let us go over the limit as long as it is from chests or scraps/retires and not mission rewards or kills. Or, at very least, just from retiring/scrapping.
