Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode has been a big hit the community since the game was released in October, but there’s always room for improvement.

One of the many things that Treyarch did right with their first attempt at a battle royale title was to play into the nostalgia of Call of Duty’s core fanbase with various maps from previous Treyarch games implemented into the much larger Blackout map.

But one fan thinks the time has come to add even more of those classic points of interest and we have to admit that some of them have completely captured our emotion!

Reddit user ‘tr7272’ submitted a post titled ‘Would you guys like it if Treyarch added some (not all) of these maps?’ and we’re immediately drawn to the two locations that have been added to the ocean in the attached image.

While we would have absolutely no complaints if any of the suggestions were added, the idea of landing on Carrier or Hijacked and getting some great loot before risking the treacherous crossing back to the mainland seems pretty damn cool!

Hijacked and Carrier were both popular multiplayer maps in Black Ops 2. Hijacked was set on a huge, luxurious yacht, while Carrier saw players battling on a Chinese aircraft carrier.

The idea of classic Zombies maps like Der Riese or Kino de Toten is also pretty appealing, especially considering the fact that Blackout already features its fair share of the undead monsters.

It seems likely that Treyarch left space in the Blackout map for this exact purpose and that classic maps will continue to be added, or removed, throughout the year and beyond. For now, though, we can only imagine what those additions might be.

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.
