Ghost Gaming Fortnite professional, Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad, managed to scoop up the $5,000 grand prize from the $10,000 Code Red 2v2 Gunfight event in Modern Warfare alongside rising CoD star John ‘2Pac ThuGLorD’.

The Code Red events, which span across a wide variety of games, pit some of the best players in the world against each other. 

That was no different in the November 25 installment, which saw players dive into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s 2v2 Gunfight mode. Call of Duty legends like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow paired up with the likes of Dr Disrespect and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, as well as professionals from Apex Legends and Fortnite also joining the party.

While some fans may have been backing the Call of Duty professionals to dominate their own game, it didn’t quite shake out like that. 

Fortnite professional, Aydan, who paired up with 2Pac ThuGLorD, run through a different bracket on their way to the final. The pair defeated Mendokusaii and cali before taking on Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner.

After taking down the former OpTic Gaming duo, Aydan and his partner overcame Team Summertime duo Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards and Jorge in a tightly-contested winners semi-final match-up.

It didn’t get easier from there, but they managed to beat the Seattle Surge duo of Karma and Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, before finishing off Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly and Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry in the Grand Finals. 


Of course, some fans may raise a few eyebrows at seeing a Fortnite player take down Call of Duty pros at their own game, but the pair had a solid run with a few 2-0’s in their back pocket.

The victory only added to a successful day for rising star 2Pac, who managed to grow his Twitch viewership by an insane amount in the aftermath.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
