The December 20 running of BoomTV’s $25,000 Code Red Modern Warfare 2v2 Gunfight tournament has wrapped up with the Dallas Empire pro player duo of Crimsix and Shotzzy finishing on top.

With the Call of Duty League regular season still over a month away, many fans have been starving to see some intense competitive action within the new Modern Warfare title.

BoomTV aimed to deliver just that with another running of their popular Code Red tournament series, featuring the 2v2 Gunfight mode, and a whopping $25,000 prize pool.

The tournament featured several of the game’s most prominent pro players, as well as some superstar content creators such as Dr Disrespect, shroud, Pamaj, Aydan, and more.

With the competition now having come to a close, you can see a breakdown of everything that took place below, including a recap of the grand final, highlights, the final placements, and more.

Recap of all-Dallas Empire Grand Final

Considering how good of a Call of Duty team the Dallas Empire are, it didn’t come as too big of a surprise when all four of their players competing in the event made it to the Grand Final.

Crimsix and Shotzzy, having won the Winners Bracket, had the advantage of needing only to win one series, while Clayster and iLLeY needed to win two to claim first place.

The first series started on Stack, which Clayster and iLLeY won, but Crimsix and Shotzzy evened things up with a 6-4 victory on Speedball. However, Clayster and co. staved off elimination by winning 6-4 on Docks to reset the bracket and force a second, winner-take-all match.

The second Grand Final series started on the new Winter Docks map, which Crimsix and Shotzzy won 6-4 to take a 1-0 lead. Once again, Clayster and iLLeY were able to stay alive by winning game two on King 6-4, setting up an all-or-nothing map three.

As if scripted for the occasion, the third map went nearly the distance, but Shotzzy clutched up for a huge kill to win the round, map, match, and tournament all with one shot of his weapon.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
