North American Call of Duty pro team FaZe Clan have officially qualified for the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

FaZe are the fourth and final team from Division A to clinch a spot, joining Red Reserve, Echo Fox, and Team Kaliber.

After a shockingly bad start to the Stage 2, FaZe came into the sixth and final week of Stage 2 knowing that they would need to win all four of their matches to even have a chance at the postseason.

Although they managed to win their first three matches, their Playoff lives ended up being decided before they played their fourth match, thanks to Team EnVy defeating Evil Geniuses and eliminating them from contention.

Of course even if EG had not lost to EnVy, FaZe would have still had the chance to qualify with a win against Team Kaliber. FaZe owned the tiebreaker against EG thanks to a better head-to-head map count. 

However, they must have felt relieved in completing their ultimate comeback within the Division A standings and getting the chance to defend their Stage 1 crown.

The CWL Pro League features a total of 16 teams divided into Divisions A and B, with the 8 teams of each group playing each other twice.

While every team receives a base cash prize for participating, the top four teams of each Division qualify for the Playoffs, where a whopping $500,000 prize pool will be up for grabs.

How to get Flaming Pumpkin Head in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Halloween Event in Modern Warfare & Warzone has brought in a whole bunch of new content for players to sink their teeth into — but one thing that players are chasing is the new Pumpkin Head and Flaming Pumpkin Head look.

As most uber-popular games do nowadays, Infinity Ward are capitalizing on the Halloween period with their own celebrations, including the Haunting in Verdansk Warzone event, new Operator packs with spooky skins and cosmetics and the Zombie Royale game mode.

With the new Trick or Treat rewards, you can also loot chests to find fun new blueprints, such as the Cleaver melee weapon that are exclusive to the Halloween event.

That said, the new Pumpkin Head style isn’t something you can pick up from the store or on your Battle Pass, and requires you to complete something in-game.

Killstreak for Flaming Pumpkin head

The Pumpkin Head comes in two variants — either its regular version or, if you’re good enough, it sets alight too, letting you run around with a Flaming Pumpkin Head as you decimate enemies in the game.

Unfortunately, though, it’s not something you can equip. If you want to adorn the Pumpkin Head in multiplayer, you have to go on a 3 killstreak.

If you want to go one up and have a Flaming Pumpkin Head, though, you have to actually go on a 10 killstreak, which is significantly harder than 3, but makes the pumpkin ever more impressive. You will, however, lose it upon death.

How to get the Pumpkin Head in Warzone

It’s worth noting that this doesn’t work the same in Warzone as it does in multiplayer. While many believe the pumpkin head can be earned through a 3 killstreak in Warzone, this isn’t actually true.

So far, it seems the only way to get the pumpkin head in Warzone is to pick up a juggernaut, which automatically comes with the head attached as standard during the Haunting of Verdansk event.

Of course, while players who come up against you and your lit pumpkin head will know that you’re evidently a good player, it does make you a lot easier to see, so beware as enemies make more of an effort to hunt you out and stop you from staying low-key, especially if you’re seeking even higher killstreaks.
