The Call of Duty League has announced that the Minnesota Home Series has been postponed from its original start date to the weekend of June 12-14.

To say that the Call of Duty League’s inaugural season has been tumultuous and full of unforeseen obstacles would probably be a strong understatement.

After restructuring the 2020 campaign in March to make all of the remaining events online, the CDL decided to postpone the Minnesota Home Series in light of the protests that are going on in the United States and abroad.

The news broke on June 3, as the league posted this message on Twitter: “In light of recent and current events, this weekend’s Call of Duty League Minnesota Røkkr Home Series will be postponed one week to June 12-14. We will share more details soon, including how the Call of Duty League family plans to pay tribute to George Floyd and dedicate this Home Series to supporting the fight for social justice and the rights of black and minority communities, as well as organizations assisting with rebuilding efforts both in Minneapolis and nationwide.”

After initially being scheduled to take place from June 5-7, the tournament will be held the following weekend, starting on Friday, June 12 until Sunday, June 14.

There’s been a lot of anticipation leading up to the Minnesota Home Series, as it will offer fans a rare chance to see the undisputed top three teams in the league – Atlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, and Chicago Huntsmen – all competing at a single event.

What’s more, the next two teams in the current standings – hosts ROKKR and Florida Mutineers – will also be participating, along with the much-improved squads of New York Subliners and Toronto Ultra.

Fortunately, the tournament’s simply been postponed and not canceled, so viewers will still be able to watch these powerhouse franchises to battle in what will be one of the more stacked events so far this season.

This news comes after Activision decided to also delay the launch of Modern Warfare Season 4 and Call of Duty: Mobile Season 7, both of which were scheduled to release during the week of June 1.

While no new date has been announced for either, the speculation is that they’ve both been postponed by a week and will be releasing sometime between June 9-10.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
