The CDL’s Dallas Empire hosted a $100,000 Warzone tournament that featured some of the game’s best players, but it was ScummN and UnRationaL who ran through the bracket, secured first-place honors, and a whopping $40,000.
- ScummN & UnRationaL win tournament without dropping a map.
- Tommey & Almond led field in Day 1 with 213 kills.
- Full $100,000 gifted in Season 4’s biggest tourney yet.
While a lot of Warzone competitions follow a linear structure, some add a twist and allow players to earn prizes through completing challenges. The Empire $100k Warzone Heist did exactly that, offering $75,000 in prize money and $25,000 in challenges alone.

Day 2: ScummN and UnRationaL dominate
They simply could not be denied. After imperfect finishes in multiple tournaments, UnRationaL and ScummN proved they’re a duo to be reckoned with by bursting through the entire bracket and securing first place without dropping a map.

A clear MVP of the tournament, ScummN posted a ludicrous 13.0 K/D on Day 2 (with 20 average kills and 6,805 average damage, all according to In The Zone). UnRationaL wasn’t too shabby either, dropping a Rocking the MG 82 and an XM4 as his secondary, ScummN was a one-man wrecking crew all day long. And then he capped it off by securing the W solo, while his duo UnRationaL provided relentless gas.
This win marks a major one, as it’s the first big tournament since the Season 4 update and was in a stacked field of competitors. Here are the full results for Day 2’s Duo Quads bracket, followed by a recap of Day 1’s Kill Race qualifiers.

Day 1: Tommey and Almond show up
The first day of the $100k Warzone Heist had duos thrashing matches in hopes of getting the highest kills. In the end, it was Tommey and Almond who would stand atop the heap with a scorching 213-kill tally.
Along with the top duo, Newbz and HusKerrs also cracked the 200 mark, but just barely. Throughout the day we saw a ton of teams adopt the new MG 82 LMG and Nail Gun SMG meta shift to rack up kills.

Top contenders like Superevan and Biffle as well as Aydan and Rated missed out the cut to advance to Day 2. Those are huge names to not see in the Grand Finals, which goes to show how cut-throat kill races can be.
