The inaugural Call of Duty League season has just wrapped up with the Dallas Empire claiming the 2020 championship. But how do teams rank when it comes to total prize money earned from events throughout the year? Let’s break it all down.

The very first CDL season came boasting a massive $6 million prize pool in total. Across 13 individual Home Series events and the postseason rewards, teams were able to fight for more than ever before in a competitive Call of Duty year.


2020’s Championship Weekend alone featured a prize pool that more than doubled the year prior. While the Dallas Empire walked away with the lion’s share of the postseason payout, which teams made the most throughout the year as a whole?

With only the top four squads earning a payout at individual events, the takeaway from the lowest ranking teams might come as a shock. Here’s how much every CDL team earned throughout the 2020 season.


How much did each CDL team make in 2020?

Given just how significant the postseason prize pool was this year, it may come as no surprise that the top four highest-earning teams all finished among the top four at Champs. Thanks to their $1.5 million performance, Dallas Empire sits comfortably in the top spot having made $1,720,000 in total.

Both Dallas and Atlanta finished as the only two lineups to never drop out of the money. Throughout 2020, both placed in the top four at all nine events in which they competed, therefore making a minimum of $10,000 with each appearance.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, two teams finished among the top four at just a single event in the regular season. The Los Angeles Guerrillas and Seattle Surge came away with $10,000 for their efforts throughout the entire year. When split among all active players and coaching staff, these winnings amount to less than what Sam ‘Octane’ Larew was allegedly fined throughout the inaugural season.


Six teams finished without winning an event this year, though the London Royal Ravens came atop this specific pack. With a standout run through the playoffs, they cashed in $500,000 despite a regular season with only three of nine event finishes in the top four. Below is a breakdown of how much every team walked away with.

Team Total Winnings Champs Prize Pool Cut Regular Season Placements
Dallas Empire $1,720,000 $1,500,000 First (4), Second (1), Top Four (4)
Atlanta FaZe $1,140,000 $900,000 First (2), Second (5), Top Four (2)
Chicago Huntsmen $760,000 $600,000 First (2), Second (1), Top Four (4)
London Royal Ravens $500,000 $450,000 First (0), Second (1), Top Four (2)
Toronto Ultra $370,000 $300,000 First (1), Second (0), Top Four (2)
Florida Mutineers $365,000 $175,000 First (3), Second (1), Top Four (1)
OpTic Gaming Los Angeles $360,000 $300,000 First (0), Second (1), Top Four (3)
New York Subliners $255,000 $175,000 First (1), Second (0), Top Four (3)
Minnesota ROKKR $170,000 $100,000 First (0), Second (2), Top Four (1)
Paris Legion $140,000 $100,000 First (0), Second (1), Top Four (1)
Los Angeles Guerrillas $10,000 First (0), Second (0), Top Four (1)
Seattle Surge $10,000 First (0), Second (0), Top Four (1)

Nearly every team featured some form of player rotation throughout the year as substitutes were swapped in and out. So for these teams, the prizing cuts will be divided into smaller portions. For the most successful team of the year, however, Dallas retained the same starting five throughout every single event.

Each player will individually be walking away with more than what some of the bottom teams earned collectively. For a full recap on results from Championship Weekend, be sure to catch up with our final placements.

Best Kilo 141 loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

Modern Warfare and Warzone are two very different experiences, so you’ll need different weapon attachments depending on which you’re playing. Here, we break down your best options when using the Kilo 141 Assault Rifle. 

Modern Warfare’s Gunsmith has been widely acclaimed, offering unprecedented weapon customization for a Call of Duty game. However, with so many options come a number of difficult choices. With Warzone Season 6, the Grau and Bruen have fallen out of favor, while the Kilo has risen to prominence as a ranged laser beam. A perfect complement to an SMG or shotgun, we’re going through the best Kilo class for Verdansk and multiplayer’s distinct purposes.


To make the choices simpler for you, we’ve chosen one loadout for Warzone and one for Modern Warfare. You don’t have to stick to these rigidly, but they should provide a useful starting point and give you an idea of what the Kilo’s best attachments are.

Best Kilo 141 loadout for Warzone

First up is our recommended loadout for Warzone, where the gun has become a mainstay among the best players in the world — as you’ll notice in recent world records. Given the size of the Verdansk map, this class focuses on being a ranged AR with comfortably controlled recoil and lethality from distance.

Infinity Ward
Warzone: Season 6’s most popular AR, this Kilo’s control at range is a perfect complement to an SMG or shotgun.

Sacrificing some mobility and ADS speed for recoil control, the Monolothic Suppressor, Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler barrel, and Commando Foregrip all help boost the Kilo’s ability to decimate enemies at range. Since this gun isn’t blessed with clean iron sights like the Grau’s, a scope like the VLK 3.0x Optic or the G.I. Mini Reflex is typically preferred for ease in targeting opponents from afar.

Finally, the 60 Round Mags offer the ability to take down multiple enemies at once, without slowing the weapon down as heavily as the 100-round drum does.

You’ll notice that this class is without a stock or a rear grip. If you want the former for mobility’s sake, you might prefer running an M4-A1 or a CR-56 AMAX anyway. As for the rear grip, the Kilo’s recoil control is already comfy enough to warrant a slightly steeper learning curve for the advantages that a 60-round mag and scope grant you.


Best Kilo 141 class for Modern Warfare

Unlike our Warzone loadout, this Modern Warfare one is more geared to more regular, faster engagements. Hence, the focus is more on ADS and recovery time, rather than straight-up damage range.

As you can see, the 19.8″ barrel has been swapped out for the 16.6″ SOCOM. This shorter barrel still slows ADS and mobility, but nowhere near as much as it’s heavier alternative.

The G.I. Mini Reflex is equipped, as it is probably the most versatile and useful sight in the game. However, the Commando Foregrip has been done away with for the Merc Foregrip, in order to compensate for some of the accuracy lost in the barrel change.


Now, you can equip a stock and rear grip to speed up your ADS time. This will let you get your sights up and have a fighting chance in any engagement. Similarly, you’re less likely to need 60-round mags in a standard public match, and the gun’s default reload is fairly prompt, so Sleight of Hand is not essential.

This class is mostly geared towards mid-range gunfights but maximizes the Kilo’s versatility to give you the best chance at both close and longer range engagements too.
