16 of the best teams in Call of Duty have battled it out over the course of the three-day $325,000 CWL Anaheim tournament, but only one will stand victorious.

Heading into the event, all eyes were on 100 Thieves who were looking to wrap up another Black Ops 4 championship and become the first team to defend their title this season.

Through the first two days of the tournament, 100 Thieves certainly looked like the team to beat, winning five straight series and dropping just three maps on their way to the Winners Final

Continuing into Championship Sunday, 100 Thieves proved to be the best team in the world with yet another dominating performance to secure their second straight CWL title. They faced Gen.G in both the Winners Final and Grand Final, dropping just a single game along the way to pull off the two-peat. 

Following behind those two were OpTic Gaming who attempted to make a Cinderella run through the Losers Bracket after being sent there by 100 Thieves, but they were no match for Gen.G who sent the Greenwall packing with a 3-2 win. 

FaZe Clan rounded out the Top 4 of the tournament after also trying to make some magic happen in the Losers Bracket and were stopped just short by their old rivals of OpTic Gaming. 

The final placements for both the pro and amateur tournaments at CWL Anaheim can be found below.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Oct 28 update nerfs JAK-12 shotgun: patch notes

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch, deployed on October 28, nerfs Season 6’s JAK-12 shotgun while addressing a few bugged issues across Verdansk and multiplayer playlists.

The R9-0 shotgun with Dragon’s Breath rounds may be the most popular shottie in Call of Duty right now, following nerfs to the Origin-12, but it’s not the one Infinity Ward is most concerned with fixing. Instead, the developers have tuned the JAK-12, explicitly addressing two of its attachments: the Drum Mags and FRAG-12 Ammo.

While players, and particularly Warzone fans, may feel that the R9-0 is the hefty close-quarters gun most worthy of adjustments, Infinity Ward have gotten ahead of the curve and looked to fix its recent peer. The two nerfs to the JAK-12 contrastingly impact its mobility when stocked with a drum and its firing rate when stocked with the somewhat-recently buffed shotgun slugs.

Elsewhere, the developers have made some changes to playlists due to bugs and fixed some exploits. Unfortunately, Shipment still remains off of the menu.

In Season 6, Infinity Ward buffed shotgun slugs so that they would feel more accurate and register hits at further ranges. This, coupled with the surprising efficiency of the JAK-12’s drums, likely prompted the nerfs to both sorts of ammunition attachments. But, with 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds still available, the gun hasn’t been rendered unusable.

As for the other adjustments made with this patch, they mostly surround smaller bugs and exploits. In Verdansk, a Warzone bunker has been reopened, a Zombie Royale exploit has been fixed, and Durable Gas Masks have been removed (but they were already very rare anyway). In multiplayer, the pumpkin heads are back in action while Snipers Only (TDM) has been removed from the playlist due to a bug, with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3) taking its place.

October 28 full patch notes


  • JAK-12:
    • Reduced movement and ADS speed on JAK-12 Drum Mags
    • Reduced rate of fire on JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo
    • Updating the JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo description to say ‘slugs’


  • Fix for an issue where the code for Bunker 3 wasn’t functioning as intended
  • Fix for an issue with the Riot Shield that would only occur when players obtained the pumpkin head after getting 3+ kills (pumpkin heads are back on!)
  • Fix for an exploit in Zombie Royale
  • Temporarily removing the Durable Gas Masks from Warzone
  • Removing Snipers Only (TDM) while we fix a bug. We’ll be replacing this mode with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3)
