With the CDL’s regular season finished and the lead-up to the CDL Playoffs underway, the best Challengers teams in the world took to the server to prove they’re worthy of spots in the big leagues.

We’ve seen countless talents rise up from the Challengers ranks and become dominant CDL names since the launch of the league in 2020.

It goes to show just how many insane Call of Duty players there are out there, with so many names fighting to earn their spot among the best.

Across North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions, many top players etched their names in the history books, putting on a show and letting their gameplay explain why they should be in the league. Here are the top placements in each region, but you can also find full results at CoD Gamepedia.

Who else but Renegades? They’ve won just about everything this season, and not one person was surprised to see them lift the trophy once again at the Challengers Finals.They lost two maps the entire tournament — both to second place Vertex Gaming — to ensure there were absolutely no question marks over who the best team in the APAC region is.

Don’t be surprised to see some of the above players take to the CDL stage next season, especially if the highly anticipated league expansion does happen.

There’s some serious talent in the Challengers scene, and impressive performances here might have just earned them some huge contracts.
