What Are CP and How Do You Use Them in Warzone?
As a fellow gaming enthusiast, I‘m sure you already know the basics of CP. But let‘s quickly go over what they are and how they‘re used in Warzone, just to establish some context:

Based on my experience earning CP and research into the topic, here are the main methods available:
- Complete tiers in the free Battle Pass – Earn 300 CP from free tiers (around tier 95).
- Level up the premium Battle Pass – Earn up to 1300 CP from paid pass when you buy it.

The most reliable and rewarding ways are through the Battle Pass systems. Let‘s take a deeper look at how those work.
Earning CP Through the Warzone Battle Pass System
Warzone has both a free and premium Battle Pass with differences in CP earnings:
Free Battle Pass
- Rewards about 300 CP near the final tier (around 95).
- Must play matches and complete challenges to earn XP and rank up.
- Takes significant grind to reach max tier and get free CP.
Premium Battle Pass
- Costs 1000 CP to unlock access to premium tiers.
- Rewards up to 1300 CP total throughout 100 tiers.
- Progresses much faster due to XP boosts and tier skips.
- Grants 20 instant tiers when purchased.
Here is a comparison of CP earnings from each pass:

As you can see, the Premium Pass earns enough CP to buy the next pass, while also granting extras.
Maximizing Your Battle Pass CP Earnings
Here are some tips to optimize your CP earnings from the Battle Pass:
- Buy the Premium Pass Bundle (2800 CP) to instantly unlock 25 tiers while still earning 1300 CP.
- Use 2XP tokens whenever possible to rank up faster.
- Complete daily challenges, missions, and quests for big Battle Pass XP.
- Play with friends for the social XP boost.
- Redeem any free tier skip codes from promotions.
- Purchase tier skips toward the end if you‘re short on time.
Follow these tips, and you can earn the full 1300 CP from a purchased Battle Pass.
Cost of CP in Real Money
For comparison, here are the standard CP bundle costs:
- 500 CP – $4.99
- 1100 CP – $9.99
- 2400 CP – $19.99
- 5000 CP – $39.99
- 10,000 CP – $99.99
As you can see, the 1300 CP from the Battle Pass saves you from spending $10 extra.

Other Tips for Earning CP in Warzone
Here are some additional methods that can score you small amounts of free CP:
- Check the Warzone or Call of Duty social accounts regularly for free CP codes during limited-time promotions and events. Redeem codes immediately before they expire.
- Take advantage of cashback and loyalty programs on sites like Rakuten to earn cash back on CP purchases. This can offset 5-10% of the cost or more.
- If you haven‘t already, link all of your Call of Duty accounts to unlock one-time CP bonuses. Links include Activision, PlayStation/Xbox, and Call of Duty mobile.
- In very rare cases, contacting Activision support and explaining an issue may lead to free CP compensation if you‘re polite. But no guarantees.
- Follow Warzone leak accounts on social media for news of upcoming events with free CP rewards.
While these tips won‘t rack up thousands of CP, they can still add up over time. Every little bit helps!
