Team Summertime and Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ amazing $5k Black Ops 4 Throwback tournament has finally reached its conclusion, with Chris ‘Parasite’ Duarte and his team of young guns going on a perfect run to claim victory. 

With the Call of Duty League season now completed, there’s a lull period between the end of CoD Championships and the start of the new Black Ops Cold War season, with no league-organized tournaments taking place.

Thankfully, Hitch and TST once again revived their throwback tournaments in partnership with CMG, with some of the most recognizable names in the game competing to take home their share of the $5,000 prize pool. 

Some big names made early exits from the tournament with Kenny, Octane, and Enable who won back-to-back tournaments with 100 Thieves during the Black Ops 4 season, dropping out in Losers Round 1 after coming up against the team of iLLeY, Huke, Cellium, and new Huntsmen signing Dashy, who fell in WR1 to Team Parasite.

Parasite, Estreal, Flamez, and Lurid continued to pick up victories, including an impressive win over the team of Arcitys, Simp, aBeZy, and Prestinni to secure their place in the grand finals. 

In the end, the grand final was a rematch of their first match of the tournament, going head-to-head with Dashy and the boys once again. While Parasite’s CMG Red team took the tournament with a 3-1 series win, every match was tightly contested, with Parasite’s young guns winning the first Hardpoint by just 25 points, and needing the fifth and deciding Control round to take map three.

The victory marks a huge moment especially for Estreal and Flames, who are currently too young to compete in the CDL Challengers season, and for Parasite who is attempting to secure a place on a Call of Duty League franchise for the Black Ops Cold War Season. 

Team Parasite takes home the $4,000 grand prize for their exceptional run, and some major bragging rights too. You can view the full final placements below.

Call of Duty Mobile’s Anniversary update is in full effect to celebrate the launch of Season 11 and a few big surprises are on the way, including a limited time second map for the battle royale mode.

It’s the one year anniversary of CoD Mobile and the developers are celebrating in a big way. The full Season 11 patch notes outlined a bunch of new content on the horizon. From new rewards and weapons to a full Battle Pass and plenty more, there’s a ton to play for amidst the festivities.

However, there’s also plenty more excitement set to carry the hype through the entire season. Chief among the additions is a special, limited-time map coming just for the battle royale playlist. If you’re a long-time Call of Duty player, you’ll know the location all too well.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map will be available to play alongside the standard Isolated battle royale map you know already.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map is making a return for a limited time in CoD Mobile.

“For our Anniversary Season we’re adding a limited time second map with Alcatraz,” the developers revealed on October 14. This location hasn’t been seen in Call of Duty since Black Ops 4’s take on the battle royale genre with Blackout.

If you weren’t around for its original run, Blackout is a considerably smaller map than what you might be used to in CoD Mobile. “Keep your head on a swivel and take advantage of the map’s verticality,” they advised. “Get up high and rain destruction on your enemies below.”

Similar to Warzone for PC and console players, plenty of vehicles were scattered around the original Blackout map. Expect to see some of those make a return, though every other gameplay element will play exactly the same as you’re used to.

It’s worth noting, however, that this map won’t be a permanent addition to the mobile experience. Alcatraz is included for the Anniversary celebration before it disappears again. Though given how much effort would have been required to port the map to CoD Mobile, it’s likely not the last time we see it.

Keep on high alert at all times as Alcatraz is a much smaller battle royale map than Isolation.

Expect to see plenty of surprises in the battle royale playlist throughout the next month. From new weapons to mods and a ton of balance updates, it’s easily one of the biggest patches to date.
