Chicago Huntsmen are just three wins away from being crowned the inaugural Call of Duty League champions,  but if their 2020 season is anything to go by, it won’t be smooth sailing.

Coming into the season, the Huntsmen had significantly more hype surrounding them than anyone else, most of this is due to the fact they reunited the legendary duo of T2P — Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper.

The Huntsmen looked irrepressible early in the season, but their illusion of invincibility soon faded. However, despite a few bumps in the road at home series events, they never took their eyes off the grand prize and looked revitalized as the season entered its climax .

This is the story of Chicago Huntsmen’s rocky road to the final four of the 2020 CDL Championship.

The most popular Warzone loadouts in September have been revealed, proving which weapons dominated the meta towards the end of Season 5.

The most popular weapons in Warzone have slowly changed over time, as Modern Warfare players have shifted away from the multiplayer weapons they’re most comfortable with such as the M4A1 assault rifle and figured out how to maximize their chances of winning in Verdansk.

Now, six months after release, players are discovering the very best strategies while also figuring out whether the regularly-added DLC weapons are viable in the game.

As a result, we see certain loadouts dominating in Warzone: but there’s also a decent amount of variation as players stick to what they’re most comfortable with.

Elsewhere, the MP5 crops up twice in the top eight, with slight variations, while snipers are opting for the HDR or Kar98 to get them through Verdansk. Obviously, as became prominent throughout September, the Origin 12 shotgun was also the sixth-most popular weapon in the game.

It will be interesting to see how this list changes in October, with new weapons added and some balancing applied to existing guns. We might see some shifts in the meta as a result.
