Twitch superstar Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is hosting a massive $50,000 Call of Duty: Warzone tournament called the MFAM Gauntlet, and we’ve got streams, the leaderboard, teams, and everything else you need to keep up with all the action.

Since his transition from Fortnite to Warzone, NICKMERCS has been one of the most-watched Call of Duty streamers on Twitch, and now he’s using that platform to put together one of the biggest tournaments we’ve seen for CoD’s new battle royale title.

Sponsored by the Army National Guard, HyperX, and SCUF Gaming, this $50,000 MFAM Gauntlet features not only some of the biggest content creators in gaming, but also several CoD pros, professional athletes, and even celebrities.

When is the MFAM Gauntlet Warzone tourney?

This competition will take place on Tuesday, April 28, kicking off at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET and scheduled to last for four hours.

It will be livestreamed on its own separate Twitch, which we’ve included below, and casters will include the Call of Duty League’s Clint ‘Maven’ Evans and Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca.

Some of the participants are also broadcasting their POVs on their own individual channels, some of which we’ve also included below.

Live leaderboard

The standings for this event can be found on the MFAM Gauntlet website and are being updated live throughout the day as results come in.

Teams & players

There are 24 teams in total competing in the MFAM Gauntlet main event, each composed of three players since the tournament is being played in Warzone’s Trios playlist.

Nick himself is competing with Cloakzy and fellow FaZe Clan streamer Swagg and there’s a spot reserved for the trio of his subscribers who made it out of the first three weeks of qualifiers, which also doubled as sub tournaments.

Format, rules, prize breakdown

The MFAM Gauntlet features a race-against-the-clock format as teams have exactly four hours to try and get as many quality matches of Warzone as they can. Once the time limit is up, each team’s best five matches determine where they finish on the final leaderboard.

Matches are scored based on two factors – eliminations and placement; here is the full scoring system that’s being used:

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
