The Call of Duty League playoffs take place from August 19-22, and viewers can earn an array of exclusive rewards just for tuning in, including an Open Beta code for Call of Duty Vanguard.

At the 2020 Championships, players were able to earn free beta codes for Black Ops Cold War as well as other viewership rewards. This year’s Champs event is no different.

For the 2021 tournament, players can earn unique in-game items along with an invite to the upcoming Vanguard Open Beta.

Here are all the different viewership rewards available, and how you can get them.

The ROKKR definitely caused a stir with their Major V victory, but can they do it again at Champs?

It’s easy to set your Activision account up to earn CDL viewership rewards, and if you haven’t done so this season, there’s still time to do it before Champs comes to a close.

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. If you haven’t already, create an Activision account.
  2. Then, link your Activision account to your YouTube account.
  3. Tune into the event while it’s live (watching the VODs back won’t earn rewards).
  4. Rewards should arrive on your account within 48 hours of reaching the viewership milestone (as explained below).

Once you’ve got that done, it’s time to find out what you’re able to earn.

The end of Championship Sunday will also mark the end of the Black Ops Cold War competitive season, so you’ll want to make sure you’re set up for success with all of the above rewards.

You can take your double XP, cosmetics and new blueprints into both regular multiplayer and Warzone to show them off — all you’ve got to do is watch the best Call of Duty players in the world face off.
