Competitive Modern Warfare is set to kick-off with Code Red’s 2v2 tournament on October 29, which will showcase some of the biggest personalities in streaming playing the all-new Gunfight game mode.
This year’s iteration in the Call of Duty series will see the introduction of a franchised league for the first time in the first-person shooter’s history. Set to kick-off in the beginning of 2020, the CDL will display some of the finest players (from far and wide) using their talents on the sticks to represent their respective city.
Before the official franchised league gets underway, Code Red are putting on a tournament to reignite competitive interests during the off-season.
When is the Code Red: Modern Warfare tournament?
The tournament will begin on October 29, with Code’s Red teaming up with Dr Disrespect to put on Modern Warfare’s first competitive tournament since the game’s official launch.
The two-time will squad up with none other than Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek in a bid to take-down the competition. Joining them in battle will be none other than former OpTic Gaming duo, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper among a host of other talent.
