Everything you need to know about CWL Vegas – Format, qualified teams, and more

With Rostermania looking to be pretty much settled, it’s time to take a look at what we can expect from CWL Vegas, the first event of the Black Ops 4 season. 

The 2019 CWL season will feature an increased prize pool of $6 million, with $250,000 of that up for grabs at CWL Vegas to open the season.

With this being the first event of the new season, how teams fared in the WWII season will determine their initial placements in Vegas.

CWL Vegas Format (December 7-9, 2018)

  • Pools
    • 20 teams will battle in the pool play portion of the event
      • Top-12 teams from Stage 2 of the WWII season will automatically qualify for pools
        • Any top-12 team that does not retain at least three players from their WWII roster will be replaced by the team with the highest Pro Points from the WWII season
    • Four teams from the Relegation Tournament
    • Four teams from the open bracket
  • Relegation Tournament
    • Eight teams with the most Pro Points from the WWII season who did not automatically qualify will be eligible for the tournament
    • Top four teams move on to Pools
    • The remaining four move into the open bracket
  • Open bracket
    • Open to everyone
      • Teams will be seeded based on their WWII Pro Points
    • Top four teams will move into pools

With the off-season Rostermania all but settled at this point, we now have a good idea of where teams will start their Black Ops 4 campaign based on the Pro Points each player gained during the WWII season.

Below is a full list of teams that qualified directly into pools, teams that will play in the relegation tournament, the teams expected to be the best of the open bracket, and a list of free agents who have the most Pro Points from the WWII season.

Note that this list is provisional and will be updated regularly. Not every roster is locked in yet, meaning that a new roster can still come in a change the placement of other teams.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

Published: 27/Oct/2020 16:15 Updated: 27/Oct/2020 16:31

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments. 

If you want to try out some different weapons in Warzone or even Multiplayer, check out our full list of best loadouts for every gun.
