How does Warzone decide which player gets credit for each kill?

The unorthodox system used by Warzone to decide which player gets the credit for a kill has finally been figured out by Call of Duty Youtuber JGOD.

As explained in the video, it’s a question that tends to pop up in squad matches rather than solos due to how many players might be focusing their crosshairs at a single target.

And it’s true! How many times have you wasted an entire magazine on an enemy player just to see your friend be awarded the elimination after hitting only one shot?

As JGOD shows, it is not a question about who gets the last shot or who does the most damage, only how much damage the last player inflicts.

Claiming kill credit in Warzone has more to do with enemy health than you might think

 

To understand the concept, it is better to have a basic understanding of how health works in Warzone.

The base health in Warzone is 100 points, with the potential to be boosted by equipping armor. Each plate adds 50 more points for a maximum of 150 additional health to a total of 250 points.

If the player being targeted has more than 30 points of health before being brought down, the player who shot last will get the kill.

Conversely, if the player has 29 points of health or fewer, whoever dealt the most damage beforehand will be credited.

This means that no matter who shoots last, as long as you inflict more than 221 damage, your kill-count on the scoreboard will go up by one.

The relevant topic begins at the 1:19 mark below for mobile viewers

In the video, we see JGOD experimenting with various weapons such as the Kilo, Striker, and MP7. This was in order to show that the number of shots fired or the percentage of  damage inflicted does not affect who is credited with the kill.

While this information might not stop the frustration of seeing your kill being stolen by a friend or a random player in a Solo match, knowing about this system might come in handy when trying to figure out how much damage your weapons are inflicting and ultimately helping to improve your loadouts.

Organizers have revealed the new schedule for Flashpoint Season 2, which will see teams competing for the largest CSGO prize pool of 2020 at $1 million.

The competition has been held completely online since March, due to the ongoing concern surrounding the global health situation, and that will continue for Season 2 as well.

This tournament venture between B Site Inc. and FACEIT kicks off its second season on November 10, 2020, with participating teams and the schedule released in the days leading up to the start.

So, let’s take a look at which teams are playing when, and how you can catch all the action.

Stream

The matches will all be streamed on FLASHPOINT’s Twitch channel, and with no in-person attendance and all games being held completely remotely, this will be the only way to watch the matches.

Participating teams

Group A

  • Fnatic
  • c0ntact
  • Dignitas
  • MAD Lions

Group B

  • BIG
  • Team Envy
  • forZe
  • MIBR

Group C

  • OG
  • Cloud9
  • Gen.G
  • Virtus.Pro

Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, who is participating in the leadership of FLASHPOINT’s creative direction, has predicted Group C will definitely be the one to watch, with OG (who are favored by many to win it all) and potential dark horses Cloud9 battling it out, along with Virtus.Pro in the mix as well, who finally seem to be getting in the swing of online play.

In Group B, BIG emerges as a clear favorite, but Thorin added “there will be heavy competition for the second-best team.” Finally, all eyes in Group A will be focused on taking down MAD Lions, who came out on top in first place following Flashpoint Season 1.
