Professional battle royale star for Rogue Gaming, Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas, has set a brand new kill world record for Warzone Solos, just a year after breaking multiple records in Black Ops 4’s Blackout. 

HusKerrs is a well-known name in the battle royale community, having demonstrated his natural talents at a host of the world’s most well known BRs. From Apex Legends to Call of Duty: Blackout, HusKerrs has regularly placed himself among the world’s best.

However, on April 9, he announced he would be stepping away from competitive Apex Legends to pursue full-time streaming. Since then, Call of Duty: Warzone has dominated the 23-year-old’s Twitch channel, allowing him to try his hand at the existing kill world records.

HusKerrs actually set multiple WRs in 2018’s Blackout.

On April 11, the American Twitch star shared the concluding clip from a game of Warzone in which he had 36 kills going into the final 1v1.

Despite not being sure of his enemy’s location, he scoped out a final building and fired multiple grenades at his opponent, swiftly eliminating him and securing his 37th kill.

This put HusKerrs’ game as the highest kill solo since they were added back in mid-March. To think that a lobby has 150 players, HusKerrs’ 37 kills means he eliminated roughly a quarter of all the players he was up against.

HusKerrs had a pretty nonchalant reaction to the win, simply smiling and commenting on the number of kills he racked up.

There were times when the game was in doubt, with HusKerrs actually being sent to the Gulag when his kill count was at 15. Luckily, he overcame his opponent and quickly got back in the game, racking up another 22 kills in the remainder of the game.

A staple of HusKerrs’ gameplay is his fast, aggressive style, much of which was anchored around the grenade launcher he was using.

It’s fair to say that HusKerrs set the bar pretty high, but we can expect to see some stark competition over the coming months.

The 37 kill match is the latest in a line of new Warzone kill records. Just one day before HusKerrs racked up his Solos record, four OCE players put up a whopping 100 kills in a Quads game.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
