Gain Mass XP Using the Black Hat PDA in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

Creating a class in Black Ops 2 is kind of like an art form. Every player has an insane amount of options for creating a character for all sorts of situations. Combining perks, with secondary weapons, and attachments allows for a wide range of killing options. But in order to unlock a lot of these perks and attachments, you need to gain XP. Gaining XP and collecting tokens is the lifeblood of the online gaming experience.

There are a bunch of ways to level up your character during multiplayer, ranging from capturing the flag a certain number of times to getting head shots with a sniper. But we can all agree, that gaining a bunch of XP as quickly as possible is always a nice route to take. One of the best ways to gain XP in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is by being a team player and utilizing the Black Hat PDA.

The Black Hat PDA is piece of tactical equipment that is unlocked when you reach level 25. You can equip up to two black at one time.

The Black Hat PDA allows you to hack and control the opponents equipment and kill streak. Is that sentry gun mowing down all of your teammates? Instead of blowing it up, you can hack it and use it as your own. Tired of the other squad's UAV revealing your team's location—hack it into your own.

The Black Hat PDA is probably one of the more underused pieces of equipment because it so new and unfamiliar. It made its debut in Black Ops 2, but it is so clutch. Here is everything that you can hack or control with the PDA; some times take more than one use.

If you use the PDA with the Engineer perk you can identify and locate enemy items on your map and hack hidden equipment through the wall.
