The Call of Duty League has unveiled the full schedule of matches that will be played during the Launch Weekend and the first 11 weeks of the 2020 season.

Teams will be heading up north for the Launch Weekend that will kick off the 2020 season of the newly-formed Call of Duty League.

The event will take place January 24-26 in Minnesota, home of the RØKKR, and will feature all 12 teams that will be competing in the league during the inaugural season.

On November 15, the CDL announced the full match schedule for that weekend of action, along with the other 10 weeks that will make up the first split of the regular season.

There will be 11 matches played in total, three on Friday, January 24 and four each on Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26.


There will be some very good matchups that fans will have to look forward to throughout the entirety of this Launch Weekend, but the final day is when most of the storylines will get written.

Sunday will kick off with the start of a new chapter in the storied OpTic-FaZe rivalry, which will be followed later in the day with what many are already calling a grudge match between Chicago Huntsmen and OGLA.

The match will, of course, feature four players who played for OpTic at some point over the past couple of years – Scump and FormaL on the Huntsmen side and Dashy and TJHaLy with the Green Wall. On top of that, it will be the first time that Chicago’s new CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez will be going up against the organization that he led for over a decade until leaving earlier this year.

MLGScump will be facing his former team OpTic Gaming for the first time since leaving them to join Chicago Huntsmen this offseason.

Match schedules for entire first split of 2020 CDL season

The Launch Weekend will be the first of 11 weeks that make up the first half of the 2020 CDL season, and the match schedules for each of the other 10 weeks have also been announced by the league.

Week 2 – Hosted by London Royal Ravens

Week 3 – Hosted by Atlanta FaZe

Week 4 – Hosted by Paris Legion

Week 5 – Hosted by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles and LA Guerrillas

Week 6 – Hosted by New York Subliners

Week 7 – Hosted by Toronto ULTRA

Week 8 – Hosted by Dallas Empire

Week 9 – Hosted by Chicago Huntsmen

Week 10 – Hosted by Florida Mutineers

Week 11 – Hosted by Seattle Surge

What comes after week 11 of the 2020 CDL season?

Following week 11 will be what the CDL is calling the Midseason Weekend, although not much information has been revealed about that as of yet. The event will most likely be played starting May 2, 2020, according to information accidentally leaked by OpTic Gaming when they announced their schedule.

Following that will be the second split of the regular season, which will culminate with the Championship Weekend on August 9, 2020, the date of which was also leaked.

The match schedules for weeks 12-22 have not yet been announced, but you can check where each weekend will be hosted via the schedule for each location that the CDL released earlier this month

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Published: 25/Nov/2020 11:09

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Type 63 loadout

Type 63
Activision / Treyarch
The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
