Yet another Twitch Rivals Warzone Showdown has now wrapped up for Season 6. Top content creators and pros duked it out for a share of the massive $200,000 prize pool, but only two duos could reign supreme across Europe and North America

Warzone fans have had plenty of competitive action to watch since the release of the battle royale title, and many of the biggest stars in gaming have jumped to the new Call of Duty mode to entertain their fans.

With the Haunting of Verdansk event now underway and Black Ops Cold War fast approaching, Twitch Rivals revealed that they would be hosting one of their biggest Warzone showdowns yet in the Modern Warfare season. If you missed out, here’s what you need to know.

Team Parasite, Team GaGOD win Twitch Rivals Warzone Season 6 showdown

The action kicked off in Europe, and it was a tight one. GaGOD’s team was neck and neck with izakooo’s for almost the entirety of the bracket. The two squads made it into the Top 10 with ease, giving each other one last chance to pull ahead.

It was GaGOD who made it to the top though. While both teams finished with 344 points, GaGOD and his duo Fifakill were able to pick up more wins, and therefore won the tie-breaker.

Over the Atlantic, Parasite showed up with his duo in Stukawaki. He decimated the competition to take home the win with 386 points, 20 ahead of his nearest rival in HusKerrs.

Other big names like Aydan failed to pop off, with the Warzone superstar finishing in 9th.

Activision’s integration of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War brought a load of new content to the game in Season 1, and next up is the Warzone Season 2 update. The massive patch introduced a huge overhaul to content, including new weapons, map changes, and more. 

On launch day, we will be keeping you on top of all the live updates as they happen for all things Warzone. In the live blog below, we’ll be posting everything you need to be equipped properly for battle, including guides, news, leaks and reactions from streamers and fans.

Agency Suppressor and Silencer nerfs to be reverted

February 25, 9:30pm GMT

One of the new changes that CoD fans were not fond of in the new update? A secret nerf to the Agency Suppressor and other silencers. Back when BOCW integrated, the suppressor was buffed so that it helped bullet velocity and was therefore comparable to the Monolithic Suppressor. That was then nerfed in Season 2.

To the satisfaction of virtually all players, those secret nerfs are going to be reverted. As Raven Software confirmed within a day of the update, Cold War suppressors will soon be, once again, buffed so that they are more viable at range.


How to get Yellow Access Cards

February 25, 8:00pm GMT

New locations and new silos may have nothing on the newest loot box, which can only be found on the new Ship POI. After you kill enough zombies, you can get a Yellow Access Card which can then be used to unlock a humming, glowing chest.

For more information on how to secure a Yellow Access Card and earn some of that sweet, exclusive loot — check out our full guide.


How to unlock LC-10 & FARA 83

February 25, 4:56pm GMT
We’ve posted two guides now on how to unlock the new Season 2 weapons, in both Multiplayer for Black Ops Cold War, and for Warzone. Here’s the one for the LC-10 and the other for the FARA 83. 

The good news is that they are fairly simple to get, as you grind through the Battle Pass. Speaking of which, check out the last post…


Warzone Season 2 Battle Pass rewards

February 25, 3:56pm GMT
While we have a comprehensive guide on the Season 2 Battle Pass, our Call of Duty lead writer Albert Petrosyan has also posted a short clip running through the rewards for each tier – seen below. There’s plenty to get through this time, no doubt about it!


Gas damage change

February 25, 3:42pm GMT
Here’s an interesting change that you might have missed in the patch notes. The gas that takes over the Warzone maps will potentially deal more damage this season, depending on how you play. The notes state: “Players that are continually in the gas will suffer more damage over time.”

It will be interesting to see how that’s received with the community.


Warzone Outbreak event

February 25, 2:50pm GMT
Season 2 kicks off with a new Zombies event called Outbreak, bringing a whole load of new rewards to Call of Duty. Below you can see some of the rewards, though we do have a full list here – courtesy of Brad Norton, one of our CoD writers.
