After weeks of waiting, teases, and speculation, Warzone was finally added to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on March 10, giving fans the chance to test their skills in the battle royale arena. 

Even though the mode is in its infancy, we’ve already had a handful of competitive events – with the recent $50,000 Code Green being the standout. However, 100 Thieves and Cash App are raising the stakes, literally, by putting on their $100,000 Warzone From Home event – where $50,000 will go to the winning team’s chosen charity and $50,000 will go to the viewers.

Format & Rules

This single-elimination tournament features what is commonly referred to as the ‘kill-race’ format, which means the teams matched up against each other in each round of the bracket must both load into separate public matches and try to get as many points possible.

Each match is a ‘best thru 2,’ so two games of Warzone are played and the team with the more points advances. Points are earned by getting both eliminations and victories – kills are worth one point each while a win earns five.

This applies for all rounds of the competition except the final one, the grand final, which will have three games played instead of two.

Executive Summary: 

  • 16 teams compete in a head-to-head single elimination tournament. 
  • All rounds through Semi-Finals is a ‘best thru 2’, where team score is the aggregate kills and wins for two games. 
  • Finals is a ‘best thru 3’, where team score is aggregate kills and wins for three games. 
  • Teams are preselected by Administration. 
  • Players will be streaming their viewpoints, Captains must enable VOD to capture gameplay. 
  • Players will be streaming their viewpoints, all with 1 minute (60 seconds) delay.

Format 

  • 16 teams will compete in a single elimination tournament, advancing until a single team remains and is declared the winner. 
  • Each team will consist of 3 players, which will be pre-determined by Administration. 
  • Teams will be drawn into the tournament bracket by Administration.  
  • Placement will be determined first by the furthest round the team advanced to, and ties will be broken consistent with the matchup tiebreaker rules. 

Match Rules 

  • For each round, teams will compete in head-to-head matchups that determine which team advances to the next round, and which team is eliminated from the tournament. 
  • Each match consists of: 
    • For rounds 1 – 3, two Battle Royale gametypes played by each team; 
    • For the Grand Finals (round 4), three Battle Royale gametypes played by each team. 
  • For each match, a team’s score will be determined by the total number of kills + Win Bonus earned by each team member for all Battle Royale games played. 
    • Each kill = 1 point; 
    • Win Bonus = 5 points; 
    • Win Bonus is awarded if the team is the last team standing at the conclusion of the Battle Royale. 
  • Teams with the highest score advance to the following round, while the team with the lowest score are eliminated from the tournament. 
  • Teams will only compete against the team they are matched up with in the bracket. 

Tie-Breaker Rules 

  • In the event both teams in a head-to-head matchup have earned the same score at the completion of the match, the following conditions will be used in waterfall format to break the tie: 
    • Team with the player who had the highest individual eliminations. 
    • If still tied, move on to the second highest individual eliminations on the team. 
    • Compare third highest individual eliminations from both teams. 
    • Team with the most total damage for the overall games played in the match. 
  • In the event the above waterfall is unable to differentiate teams, Administration reserves the right to determine another criteria to be used to advance a team. 
Infinity WardEliminations and wins will be key to advancing in the bracket of 100 Thieves’ Warzone From Home tournament.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
