$20K CoD Vanguard Code Red Tournament: Results & Recap

With another $20,000 up for grabs, stacked lineups came through for this Code Red event with every intention of winning. While certain lineups full of veteran CoD talent proved a little stronger than most newer Warzone-led squads, it was still a closely contested bracket all the way through.

Unfortunately for the likes of JoeWo, MuTeX, and Jukeyz, all notable Warzone figures, their runs came to an end without a single win. Meanwhile, it was the likes of Team Rated and Team Censor, both filled with some of the most experienced CoD players, that pushed through the upper bracket.

On the other side of the equation, Methodz helped lead his team through a ridiculous lower bracket run, winning five games in a row to secure their spot in the grand finals. Though when all was said and done, it was ultimately Team Rated that came out on top to win the lion’s share of the prize.
