Format and rules
How to win:
The Code Red console duos tournament for Blackout will feature 16 teams playing in a double elimination bracket. Each match will see two duos facing off over the course of two Blackout games. The duo wit the most combined kills at the end of the second game will win.
If the kill count is tied after the two games, a third will be played where the first duo to reach a total of five kills will advance. If neither team gets five kills, the team with the most kills advances. If there’s another tie, the process will be repeated until a winner is decided.
In the Grand Final, the team that comes out of the lower bracket will have to win two matches, while the upper bracket team has to win just one.
- Damaging an opponent’s vehicles, equipment, items, etc will result in a forfeit.
- Running over an opponent with a vehicle or killing/harming them with a vehicle will result in a forfeit.
- Using any equipment to interfere with an opponent will result in a forfeit. (Throwing a smoke, flash, stun/concussion, etc at your opponent)
