The stakes in competitive Call of Duty wager matches have been increasing in recent years, with the best online Search and Destroy players risking thousands of dollars for the glory.

Many of these matches are 1v1 scenarios, with top amateur players and streamers like Nicholas ‘Equuip’ Viera and Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal pulling in big audiences for these high intensity matches.

Many of these players are aspiring professional players, with potential careers in Call of Duty esports lying ahead of them, and so these pressured matches could prove invaluable experience.

On Friday, February 1, a 2v2 match was held with a total of $2,000 on the line, put up by the players themselves.

iLLeY teamed up with Halo world champion and Splyce player Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas, facing off against the duo of ‘Zelott’ and ‘tbeMerC’.

Playing a best of 7, the match came right down to the wire, with an incredibly intense round 11 played on the seventh map. The pressure was on iLLeY’s shoulders to clutch in a 1v2, which he miraculously pulled off, winning the $2,000.

Peaking at just over 2000 viewers, these high roller wagers pull in an ever growing audience of competitive Call of Duty fans, as they watch these talented players risk massive amounts of cash.

It was a tough pill to swallow for the players on the losing side, as emotions ran high, but the talent on display from both sides bodes well for their futures as competitive players.

Shotzzy of course has already played at the top level, winning multiple tournaments in Halo 5 with Splyce, and when he turns 18 hopes to make the transition fully to Call of Duty. Another Halo world champion, Bradley ‘Frosty’ Bergstrom has already proven it in Black Ops 4, qualifying for the Pro League with Enigma6.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
