Esports event platform BoomTV hosted another $25,000 Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight tournament, once again starring some of the biggest content creators and pro players in the Call of Duty community but this time it was James 'Clayster' Eubanks and Thomas 'Tommey' Trewren who took home the lions share.
The Call of Duty competitive season is well underway, but the wait between CDL matches can feel quite long. Luckily, BoomTV and Code Red partnered up for yet another Gunfight tournament, giving fans some exciting CoD action.
Previous events, played in November and December, were intense, showing off some explosive Call of Duty matches. Fortnite pro Aydan 'Aydan' Conrad managed to defeat legends of the game to win the November edition, while Ian 'Crimsix' Porter and Anthony 'Shotzzy' Cuevas-Castro fired back in the second event and took home the prize.
Who won the $25K Tournament?
After rising through the lower bracket and taking out the likes of Dallas Empire's iLLeYY, former Code Red tournament winner and Fortnite pro, Aydan 'Aydan' Conrad was joined by Chicago Huntsman analyst John 'x2Pac ThuGLorD' Hartley as they found themselves in the Grand Finals. Their opposition was none other than Empire's James 'Clayster' Eubanks and Thomas 'Tommey' Trewren.
Clayster and Tommey claimed victory on the first map, Speedball, but swiftly dropped the second map two rounds to six. The third battle took the squads over to Gulag Showers where Aydan turned up big time, winning the series 6-0 and resetting the bracket entirely
Despite their best efforts, they weren't able to take it all the way and win out the second bracket. Map one went the way of the Empire crew and the second map was also decided quickly with a 6-3 victory for the Dallas duo. Clayster and Tommey took home $13,000 for their winning performance.

What was the format for the $25K Code Red Gunfight tournament?
The tournament was played in a double-elimination format, with each match being played as a best of three. Teams of two competed against other teams to work their way up the bracket, with the winners advancing, while the losers drop to a lower bracket. Once a team lost twice, they were out.
For this event, teams had to win by at least two rounds, meaning the Gunfight games can't end 6-5. Although, if the match was deadlocked and the score reached 9-9, then teams played a final sudden death round.
There was $25,000 on the line in this tournament, with the prize breakdown as follows:
- First Place - $13,000
- Second Place - $8,000
- Third Place - $4,000
