FaZe Clan pro Call of Duty player Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto and FC Black academy player ‘Asim’ have won the December 14 running of the $10,000 Code Red tournament for Black Ops 4’s Blackout battle royale mode, hosted by Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect, BoomTV, and Esports Arena. 

The pair edged out eUnited pro James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks and academy star Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr in the grand final to secure the $6,000 first place prize and the prestige of a Code Red championship.


Before reading on, please go over the scoring format to better understand the remainder of this recap.


Code Red is a double-elimination tournament that will start off with 16 teams of two players each. Since there are no publicly available custom games yet in Blackout, the competition will follow the standard ‘total of two’ format.

Each round, the Duos that are matched up together will queue into a Squads lobby and try to get more combined eliminations than their opponent. After two maps, the team with the more combined kills from both maps wins.

If kills are tied after the two maps, a third map will be played, with the first Duo to get to five total kills first winning. If neither team gets to five, the one with the higher number of eliminations wins.

Having lost in the first round of the Winner’s Bracket, ZooMaa and Asim went on an incredible Loser’s Bracket run to reach the grand final, winning six straight matches in the process.


However, since Clayster and Simp had won the Winner’s Bracket, they only needed to win one of two matches in the grand final, while the FaZe players needed to win both if they were to be crowned victors.

Full of confidence, ZooMaa and Asim came out hot in map one of game one, putting up nine kills while eUnited were eliminated early and had zero.

That early advantage was enough to carry ZooMaa and Asim to an 11-6 overall victory in the first game, which reset the bracket and forced a winners-take-all game two.


The second game started off a lot more tightly contested than the first, as the eUnited boys narrowly led 12-11 after the first map, looking to close things out in map two.

However, with everything basically on the line, the two teams made an aggressive decision to land in a central area of the map, which proved to be more rewarding for ZooMaa and Asim as they wrapped up map two 10-5 to win game two 21-17 and secure the Code Red championship.

Here are the final placements of the December 14 running of the Code Red Blackout tournament, along with the prize breakdown for each placements.

Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting another huge Call of Duty tournament and this time, Warzone is in focus as the best players will be coming together in an entirely new format.

From Black Ops 4 to Ghosts and even Modern Warfare 2, Hitch has been hosting an assortment of throwback CoD events throughout the offseason. However, his sights are now set on Warzone as the next competition is on the horizon.


Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

The format is something completely new so expect every competitor to be tested like never before. From where you can watch to every player lined up, here’s what you need to know about the Cracked Creators Warzone tournament.


How to watch the Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.


Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament format

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
