Gunfight tournaments returning to Modern Warfare with new rewards

Modern Warfare developers Infinity Ward have confirmed that Gunfight tournaments will be returning to the game, with new rewards available to players who take part.

Gunfight tournaments were featured in the early days of the game’s release, bringing the 2v2 game mode to a more competitive environment with players able to compete for additional XP and “high tier cosmetic rewards” if they could win in a 32-team bracket.

However, the beta phase of the tournament testing ended almost as quickly as it had started, and was removed from the game shortly after its release. While it was a fun feature, Infinity Ward clearly believed there were some fixes that needed to be made.

Gunfight is a new feature to the Call of Duty franchise that has already become a hit with fans.

Now, though, it seems that the testing is nearly finalized and they might be ready to make these tournaments available to players once again, judging from their response to a tweet from a player.

Asked what happened to the tournaments, Infinity Ward said: “They’ll be back! We’re fixing a few bugs here and there along with working on adding some new rewards.”

At the time the tweet was sent, it had been around a month since the tournament beta phase had been taken out of the game.

Infinity Ward didn’t expand on the tweet or provide a timeframe for when players should expect to be playing Gunfight tournaments in Modern Warfare again, but given the fact that they took the time to respond, it seems easy to predict that it comes sooner rather than later.

In its original iteration, Gunfight tournaments saw 16 teams of two face off in a single-elimination bracket competing for cosmetic rewards, but the promise of new rewards may keep players coming back when they return.

Although no date has been provided, expect the servers to be very busy when tournaments return, so be sure to get your practice in beforehand to get those wins (and rewards) in.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
