Famous Call of Duty: MW2 map reimagined in Fortnite as ‘Risky Rust’ looks incredible

Fortnite players have been uploading a lot of designs to social media since Creative mode went live, but not many of them look as game-ready as this ‘Risky Rust’ creation. 

Based on the classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map, Risky Rust features a tall metal structure in the middle with obstacles all around it, just like the classic version of Rust. 

A rather dramatic video of the design was posted to YouTube by Team Creativity, showcasing a CoD-style loading screen, how spawning into the map would look and much more. 

Team Creativity’s video editor, Joey Veekens, told Dexerto: “I picked Rust because when I was young it was all about Modern Warfare 2. I was a huge console gamer and I loved to have the old school 1 v 1 sniper battles on Rust.” 

This is one of the more complete designs which has been posted online so far, and when asked about Risky Rust potentially taking the place of Risky Reels on ‘The Block’, the editor said: “If it’s possible that this will be on The Block then yes, for sure, I would like to see that”. 

Veekens understands, though, that Risky Rust is unlikely to feature on the Fortnite map in the future, due to its association with Call of Duty. 

A flood of gamers have been quick to upload their designs to social media to share their designs since Creative mode was introduced in Fortnite’s v7.00 patch, with some garnering more attention than others. 

The more popular ones tend to be inspired by destinations from popular gaming culture. For example, people have created Call of Duty: Black Ops’ Nuketown map, Pokémon’s Twinleaf Town and The Walking Dead’s Alexandria Safe Zone.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
