The Chipotle Challengers Series’ $50,000 Warzone Challenge #2 tournament has come to an end, and out of all the big names that competed, it was a surprise qualifier team that finished in first place.

The second main event of the 2020 Chipotle Challengers Series saw some of the world’s best Warzone duos drop into Verdansk with $25,000 in cash, charity money, and a lot of burritos on the line.

The duo of Unrational and Stu, who were able to participate in this event by winning one of the qualifiers back on June 28, doubled down on their victory by taking home the first-place prize, which included $25,000 in cash, a year’s worth of Chipotle burritos, and another 25 grand donated to a charity of their choice.

They put of scores of 60, 58, 56, and 54 to finish with 228 total, an impressive haul considering that each elimination was only worth a single point with an additional five for match victories.

Chipotle Warzone Challenge #2 format

As with the first Warzone Challenge, this star-studded July 16 tournament featured many big-name content creators, athletes, celebrities, as well as those who were not invited but qualified via the four qualifiers that were held during June and July.

Duos were given three hours to try and get as many good results in Warzone as possible, with only four of their best matches from that time window being counted towards their overall score.

The scoring system was based on both eliminations and placements, as each kill was worth one point and match victories worth five.

 

In addition to the prizes, charity money, and year’s worth of burritos that went to the champions, the fans also got rewarded for watching, as Chipotle gave away thousands of burrito vouchers via in-stream giveaway.

After a long day of eating Mexican food and watching some intense competitive Warzone action, the only thing that remains to be seen is what the Chipotle Challengers Series has in store next.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
