With the start of the first season on December 16, CoD: Cold War was now also integrated into CoD: Warzone. The big update not only brings a lot of new content, but also made sure that collected XP tokens that players had earned in CoD: Modern Warfare disappeared.
The lost XP tokens are used to increase the player’s experience gain for a certain period of time. This means, for example, that weapons can be leveled faster, of which there are 30 new ones in season 1.
We have summarized how the content from CoD Cold War was integrated in this detailed article:

XP tokens can only be used in MW?
CoD Warzone was originally an integral part of CoD Modern Warfare. In addition to the unlocked weapons and attachments, both titles also share the rewards from the Battle Pass.
These rewards also include the said tokens, which could then be used as boosters both in MW multiplayer and in Warzone.
Now that Warzone is no longer specifically part of MW, the option to use the collected XP tokens in Battle Royale has apparently been removed. MW owners can still redeem the tokens in multiplayer mode.
Are there such XP tokens in Cold War? Yes, in the new Season 1 Battle Pass there are XP tokens that can also be used in Warzone. Of course, this begs the question of why the cold war tokens work in Warzone, but old MW tokens have been rendered unusable.

Pure Warzone players get away with nothing
Since Warzone was published as a separate Free2Play game, many Warzone players do not even have a full version of MW and can therefore no longer access the XP tokens they have collected.
This is especially annoying for players who have invested real money in the Battle Pass. Many levels contained exactly these XP tokens, which have now disappeared. Whoever has accumulated it is now looking into the tube.
The displeasure is meanwhile spreading on the Internet, as a Reddit post by heheIroflmaoed shows. Many players see themselves robbed of their money and speak of fraud.

“I bought the Battle Pass for Warzone. I just played Warzone. I got the tokens for Warzone and now they’ve all been stolen from me without a word from Activision. It’s a big deal.”
Other players feel that they are being forced to buy Cold War, as the XP tokens from this Battle Pass also work in Warzone. It is not yet known whether it is just a bug and whether the tokens will be submitted later.
