A blind gamer is able to pick up eliminations in Call of Duty using only the sounds of the game.

tj_the_blind_gamer announced his first elimination in Black Ops 4 multiplayer in a post on reddit.

Previously, TJ recorded 10,000 eliminations in Call of Duty World War 2 using only his ears and the vibration of the controller to locate enemy players.

He lost vision in his right eye when he was five years old, then his left eye went at 14, leaving him completely blind.

TJ did not let his lack of vision stop him from enjoying Call of Duty and hopes to inspire others with disabilities, saying “I believe, if I can get kills in the thousands without being able to see the game, then hopefully other disabled people can learn and manage to perform decently well.”

When it comes to Black Ops 4, TJ has found the new and improved Zombie mode to be more enjoyable so far.

You can follow him on his YouTube channel under tj the blind gamer, and on Twitch at tj_the_blind_gamer.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.

There’s no guarantee you’ll be the next player on the Dallas Empire or anything like that, but if you’re confident in your ability to frag out, it can’t hurt to give it a shot.
