while Double XP is active, XP boosts can be used simultaneously with it, and the boost amount will be multiplied. (i.e., Double XP (100% boost) + 50% Boost = 200% total boost). This can be verified at the end of every match when the total bonus experience for the round is displayed (i.e. for the previous example, if the total round experience was 9,000, the total bonus experience will indicate 6,000).
Double XP functions in the same manner in Battlefield Hardline as it does in Battlefield 4. The only difference is the multiplication of XP Boosts which only amplify the amount of XP obtained for a specific action.
Battlefield 1 periodically features Double XP, also known as "Community Boosts". Unlike other installments, the boost is only applied to the end of round score and require the completion of matches to be awarded.
XP Boosts in Battlefield Heroes increases experience gain is stackable with other XP Boosts. Boosts do not work on level 30 Heroes and boosts of the same type do not stack but extend their duration. Additionally, bonus XP obtained from boosts will not be added to a players score in a match but instead privately in the players menu.

XP Boosts in Battlefield 4 are obtained randomly through Battlepacks. Once obtained, a boost can be activated in the pause menu and will stay active for the next hour of gameplay in a multiplayer match. There are currently four types:
Squad Boosts are XP Multipliers featured in Battlefield 1, introduced in the 1.04 update on November 15th, 2016. Activated in the Squad menu, they are random legendary drops available in Battlepacks which can be sold for 270 Scrap.
They provide a 100% XP Boost to all members of the player's squad for all XP earned. Squad Boosts do not stack meaning that only one boost may be applied at one time. If another player activates a boost while one is active the previous boost will be placed in a queue and the countdown timer will pause until the new boost has run out.
Like past instalments, XP boosts increase the amount of experience earned during gameplay, with both the aforementioned pack and the Chapter Four Starter Pack including a chapter-limited 20% XP increase. This allows players to reach ranks in Tides of War chapters, with the bonus also applying to completed Tides of War weekly challenges at a faster rate than normal. Unlike previous games however, XP boosts can only be obtained by paying real money to obtain the starter packs.
