One of Call of Duty esports most iconic players will make his return to competing at CWL Vegas after almost a two-year hiatus.

Adam ‘Killa’ Sloss is one of the most recognizable faces in the competitive CoD community, despite his last notable placement being all the way back in 2016 as part of Dream Team on Black Ops 3.

Best known for his world championship win on Black Ops 2 back in 2013, the iconic figure was forced to the sidelines during the WWII season after being banned by GameBattles, and as a result, the CWL, from competing for six months.

With that ban now over, Killa is looking to the first event of the Black Ops 4 season to make his comeback, playing alongside up and comer SupremeAgility, and veteran players Twizz, Legal, and TcM.

Fighting through the Open Bracket of the second CWL hosted event in Las Vegas, Killa and co announced they will be representing a new organization, known as Raised by Kings.

The announcement was made on November 30 via their official Twitter account, but relatively little is known about the organization, with under 500 followers and a website that brings up an error page.

Killa and his RB Kings team will descend upon the Hard Rock Hotel on December 7 as the Black Ops 4 season kicks off in Sin City.

Returning for his final event of the Call of Duty League offseason, Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting an enormous Black Ops 2 Invitational featuring former champions and popular content creators.

Throwback tournaments have been all the rage throughout the 2020 offseason and no one has been leading the charge quite like Hitch. Outside of hosting Warzone comps, his unique tournaments have spanned from Modern Warfare 2 to Black Ops 4. This time, his sights are set on 2012’s Black Ops 2.

Despite hackers ruining an early test for this particular event, the kinks have all seemingly been worked out. From former championship-winning teams to some of the biggest content creators, Hitch’s final event is set to be the biggest yet.

From how you can tune in, to every player joining the all-star Call of Duty event, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything there is to know about the Black Ops 2 Invitational.

The final event of the offseason is set to kick off on Wednesday, October 28. Opening matchups will be going live at 3PM EST (12PM PT) and the broadcast will likely run for most of the day.

As per usual, it’s all expected to be featured on Hitch’s own Twitch stream which we’ve embedded below. A majority of the players and creators will likely be sharing their own perspectives throughout the event as well.

Teams competing in the Black Ops 2 Invitational

Some squads feature some of the most successful Call of Duty veterans while others consist of popular streamers. Regardless, every team is stacked with FPS talent so expect some close matchups.
