Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte took the support of his organization to a new level by shaving the Ghost Gaming logo into his head.

The Call of Duty pro player got a new haircut and posted the results to Twitter.

The Ghost Gaming “G” is prominently shaved into the side of his head, but the tweet also explained why he’s trying out the new style.

Some were quick to point out that the logo will not be visible as his air will grow back before CoD Champs in August, but Parasite assured them this was only a test run.

If the positive social media response is any indication, the Ghost logo will make another appearance on Parasite’s head for Champs.

The Call of Duty World League Championship will run from August 17 to 19 in Columbus, Ohio.

Parasite joined Ghost Gaming after being dropped by compLexity in April, a move that allowed coL to take over the CWL Pro League spot vacated by eRa Eternity.

Ghost Gaming also had a chance to make the Pro League, but the newly formed team stumbled during the online qualifier.

Despite the disappointment of missing out on the Pro League, Ghost Gaming as arguably been the best non-league team since picking up Parasite.

Ghost finished in 6th at Seattle and made their way into pools for a t16 finish at CWL Anaheim.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
