A PlayStation 4 player appears to have smashed the  console world record for most kills by a solo player in a squads match on Call of Duty’s battle royale mode, Blackout.

Blackout is Activision’s first foray into the battle royale genre with Call of Duty, and sees 100 players dropping into a map dotted with some of the most popular locations from previous CoD titles such as Nuketown, Array and Firing Range.

Since its release, Blackout players have been battling to gain ultimate bragging rights as a world record holder for most kills in matches. One of these records seems to have been smashed again, as PS4 player Scottish Casper appears to have broken the previous record of 31, almost two months after the last record was set.

Blackout is Call of Duty’s first foray into the battle royale genre.

The incredibly skillful player uploaded a video to his YouTube channel directly from his PlayStation 4 that shows him dominating opponents on his way to the new world record for console players. Scottish Casper tore through a multitude of opposing teams on his way to an amazing victory, finishing with a mindblowing 34 kills at the end of the game.”

You can watch Scottish Casper’s full 21 minute gameplay below.

To win a Blackout solos match alone is incredibly difficult, but to do it against teams of four without getting dropped is an astonishing feat. Picking up 34 kills means Scottish Casper took down over a third of the lobby single-handedly, which is nothing short of jaw-dropping.

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.
