CoD Vanguard $40K Community Showdown: Results & Recap

Now that everyone CoD pro has had a few days to grind Vanguard, tournaments are getting even more competitive. With the best weapons already locked in, strategies mapped out, and maps prioritized, teams can focus up on frying now.

The final matchup of the day saw them facing off against Team Simp after three consecutive wins in the lower bracket. While it was a closely contested series, it was ultimately Simp, Newbz, Rated, & aBeZy who got the job done and closed out the win.
