The New York Subliners are champions of their own Home Series, taking down the Chicago Huntsmen in the Grand Final to become the fifth different team to win a Call of Duty League tournament this season.

Having clinched their fourth semifinal berth in a row, the Subliners finally broke through the wall and not only made it to their first-ever Grand Final, but also managed to win it, and in dominant fashion, no less.


A statement 3-0 sweep of Huntsmen, who had defeated them earlier in the tournament, confirmed what a lot of people were already thinking – that New York were a much-improved and powerful side compared to earlier in the season, before they had recruited Mack.

The Home Series victory earned them the maximum 50 CDL Points, catapulting them all the way up to fifth in the standings. Huntsmen got 30 points for their effort, moving up to second, and Toronto Ultra and Atlanta FaZe rounded off the top-four with 20 apiece.

CDL New York Grand Final recap & highlights

The series kicked off on Rammaza, which has historically been one of Subliners’ favorite maps, and it showed as they took the Hardpoint 250-238 for a 1-0 series lead.

Huntsmen had the advantage going into the final hill, but a huge late break from New York – their signature this weekend – saw them quickly turn the tables and it was too late for Chicago to recover in time.

The series stayed on Rammaza for the Search & Destroy, which was music to the Subliners’ ears as they were able to close out a 6-4 win and take a commanding 2-0 lead.


Down big, Huntsmen did make it interesting with a 2v4 clutch from the twins, Arcitys and Prestinni, but New York’s early lead and mastery of the map were too much for Chicago to overcome.

No Rammaza, no problem – New York proved that they’re not a one-trick pony with a convincing wire-to-wire 163-144 win on Hackney Yard Domination, clinching the series and their first Home Series victory.

Chicago were on the back foot from the start, and despite their late rally, were never really able to threaten the Subliners’ control of the map – a fitting end to a match that the hosts deserved to win.

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot reticle in Warzone & Modern Warfare

Published: 20/Oct/2020 15:49

The Blue Dot reticle has fast become one of the most popular in Warzone and Modern Warfare, with players claiming it helps with their aim and accuracy when engaging in gunfights.

The Blue Dot has seen a massive uptick in use, especially as it becomes more popular among Warzone content creators who are constantly seeking new ways to maximize their ability in their gameplay.


This is somewhat similar to Infinite Warfare, another Infinity Ward game, in which pro players would use the Blue Dot to get a bit of a better view on their enemies and increase their chances in gunfights.

That said, it’s not easy to unlock, and is a bit of a grind, so be prepared to spend a good amount of time trying to get it.

Holo Sights have become increasingly popular thanks to the Blue Dot.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Holo sights

There are exactly nine tasks that have to be completed to unlock the reticle, and in a certain order, so it’s guaranteed to take up a solid wedge of time, especially if you’re exclusively playing Warzone.

Let’s take a look at the challenges you have to complete to unlock the Blue Dot for holographic sights:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the APX5 Holographic Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the PBX Holo 7 Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Holo Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using any Holo Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Holo Sight

These have to be done in this order, as completing each challenge unlocks the next, and each one will also unlock a new reticle as it builds up to the big one.

This isn’t a quick unlock, so expect to sink a lot of time in.

How to unlock the Blue Dot reticle for Reflex sights

The process for unlocking Blue Dot on Holo sights is fairly similar, though there is an additional challenge thrown in there that will make the process take even longer.

Here’s what you’ve got to do:

  • Get 200 Kills using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Operator Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Aim-Op Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Viper Reflex Sight
  • Get 200 Kills using any Monocle Sight
  • Get 50 Headshots using the Monocle Sight
  • Get 3 kills without dying 150 times using any Reflex Sight
  • Get 500 kills using any Reflex Optic

Fastest way to unlock Blue Dot

Warzone new sniper
Season 6 has brought a bunch of new content, but we’re also seeing a lot of Blue Dot reticles on the battlefield.

Now you know how to do it, you’ll want to know the quickest way to unlock the reticle, too. While we can find ways to minimize how much time you have to spend grinding, it’s worth noting that this really is a grind, and will require a lot of time spent picking up the kills necessary.


We recommend playing in Shipment 24/7 or Shoot the Ship playlists in Modern Warfare multiplayer if possible, especially as with Shipment you can simply slap the Holo sight onto a shotgun or SMG and hipfire at the enemies, racking up kills as you go without being held back by aiming down the enhanced-magnification sights.

When attempting to get headshots, your safest option would probably be using a single-fire weapon like the FAL and aiming for the head — for this, you might be best off heading into the Hardcore playlists.


That said, there are plenty of ways to unlock Blue Dot, and as long as you keep up with the challenges, you should be able to unlock them through any method, though some processes may take longer than the ones we’ve laid out above.
