YouTuber and Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has brought Call of Duty fans a weekly tournament called Warzone Wednesday, featuring some of the biggest streamers and professional CoD players in the world going head-to-head in the new battle royale title.

Warzone has seen a lot of success in the few weeks since its launch, reaching tens of millions of players and becoming a popular title for the top streamers and content creators across multiple platforms.

So, to celebrate, Keem launched Warzone Wednesday in a similar format to Fortnite Friday back in 2018, which helped launch the careers of many of today’s Twitch streamers.

Here, you can find out everything you need to know about the third week of Warzone Wednesday, which was played on Monday, April 6, due to the following days being taken over by the launch of Riot Games’ beta for their new first-person shooter, Valorant.

$20K Warzone Wednesdays Week 3 recap

Week 3 of Warzone Wednesday had a seriously smaller showing than in previous weeks, though the winner of the first two tournaments, Josh ‘JoshOG’ Beaver and Diego ‘Diegosaurs’ Navarette, were still in attendance. They were joined by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who was filling in for Apex Legends pro Jordan ‘Huskerrs’ Thomas as he was playing in the Apex Legends Global Series.

Due to the reduced number of teams, where previous weeks had up to 16, the tournament started at the semi-finals, pitting the two-time winners against Tom ‘72hrs’ Mulligan’s team while the opposing side of the bracket saw Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff’s team face-off against Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow’s.

The grand final saw Ninja, JoshOG and Diegosaurs come up against TeePee, NoahJ456 and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad. Though it was fairly tight throughout, a couple of solid showings from Ninja’s side – as well as some tough luck for TeePee’s – kept the Mixer star on top, with his side eventually taking the win with 104 kills to TeePee’s 88 in the final.

Warzone Wednesday Week 3 final standings

The final standings were as follows:

Place Team Eliminations Prize Money
1st Ninja, JoshOG, Diegosaurs 186 $20,000
2nd TeePee, Aydan, NoahJ456 170
3rd NICKMERCS, Swagg, Crowder 70
4th 72hrs, Felo, Trainwrecks 28

Though this week’s Warzone Wednesday didn’t have as many teams and big names as fans would like to see, it was still an impressive showing and proved why these guys are as popular and successful as they are.

Hopefully, though, next week will feature another full bracket – and maybe we’ll see someone step up to knock JoshOG and Diegosaurs off of their perch.

Warzone FOV setting on PC can reduce visual recoil on weapons

Call of Duty players have uncovered an unusual field-of-view setting in Warzone, claiming that weapons such as the CR-AMAX seem to have less visual recoil when it is toggled.

The weapon meta is continuing to shift in Warzone as more changes are released in Season 6, giving players plenty of unique weapons and playstyle to try in the battle royale.

Popular YouTuber Swagg was one of the latest to reveal a Season 6 loadout for Warzone but claimed there was also a “secret” setting that was helping him to rack up more kills in-game.

CoD players like Swagg have claimed that Warzone’s FOV settings can affect recoil in-game.

While the CR-56 AMAX, which was featured as the Galil in past CoD titles, has been a solid weapon since its release, there are, apparently, some field-of-view settings that Warzone players can change to make the gun easier to use.

In his October 24 upload, Swagg revealed that having the “Affected FOV” setting enabled makes it seem as if the AMAX has little to no recoil. This is opposed to the default Independent FOV setting.

“Affected FOV on PC makes guns feel like they don’t have recoil,” Swagg revealed, in his Warzone gameplay, “[it’s the] reason why I use Amax now.”

The AMAX does not usually stand out above other Assault Rifles in its class, but it still has one of the highest base stats when it comes to damage per second (DPS), meaning that less recoil would make this quite a strong choice in the current meta.

While the weapon, with these affected FOV settings, appears to move less compared to CR-56 AMAX gameplay for console players, it is unclear whether or not it actually has a major effect on the gun.

However, it seemed to be working quite well for Swagg, as he highlighted just how strong it could be, managing to pick up plenty of kills in his Warzone match with fellow content creator booya.

Another CoD YouTuber Webzy has previously highlighted the difference in recoil between the Affected and Independent settings, echoing the sentiment of the FaZe member and claiming it was actually easier to hit shots with it enabled.

Infinity Ward is regularly coming out with fixes for any bugs found in-game but it appears as if this FOV setting was intended to be a feature, making it unclear whether or not this will be patched.
