It tracks your stats, it keeps you connected to your Call of Duty friends, it offers in-game rewards, and now it’s the best Call of Duty gift-giving app you’ve got. Using the Call of Duty Companion app, you can purchase the Battle Pass as a gift for your Activision friends.

Once they claim their gift in-game, they’ll get instant unlock Battle Pass Tier 0 content and any other progression they’ve earned, plus the ability to unlock even more content across 100 tiers. Getting the Battle Pass means you can unlock new character skins, weapon blueprints, finishing moves, Call of Duty points, and more, just by playing the game. That’s a gift any Call of Duty player can appreciate.

Make (Activision) Friends and Up Your Game

Already have a friend in mind? In order to gift them the Battle Pass, you first need to become Activision friends. Activision friends enable you to party up for cross-platform play. In the Companion app, you can view and compare each other’s stats across multiple titles, view your play feeds, and see how you stack up against one another on the leaderboards.

If you’re not already Activision friends, it’s an easy process that can be completed in the Companion app or entirely in-game. Go here for a rundown on how it’s done. After the process is complete, you must be friends for at least one week before sending them a gift.

While you’re making friends, encourage them to download the Call of Duty Companion app. In addition to in-depth stat tracking, app users can view their progress in the current Battle Pass, read up on the latest Call of Duty and Warzone related news and strategies, analyze heat maps showing your kills and deaths on recent matches, and check the schedule and competitive standings for the Call of Duty League™. App users also receive weekly login rewards like calling cards or XP tokens. 

Give the Gift of 100 Tiers

Got a squadmate that’s always got your back, even when you perish in the Gulag?  Or maybe someone has a birthday coming up?

Before you buy make sure you have enough Call of Duty points in your account. You can add additional Call of Duty points through in-game purchases or through your first-party store.  Then, open up the app and send them the ultimate gift, so they can unwrap up to 100 tiers of content.

There’s no better way to show appreciation for your Call of Duty friends than by showering them with in-game content, and the Battle Pass is the way to do it. Then party up online, play together, and blast through those tiers together.

Gifting the Battle Pass is as easy as going to the Battle Pass section under Player and selecting “Gift the Pass”.

Upon completion, your friend will be notified of the Battle Pass gift in-game, though they may need to restart their game to claim the gift. Once claimed, they’re all set to play and unlock up to 100 tiers of great new content! Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving.

So, what are you waiting for! Show some love to your Activision friends and give the gift of the Battle Pass.

We’ll see you online.
