The Games of Summer have started in Call of Duty: Warzone, and while it may seem like a series of simple trials, getting that coveted gold ranking its a bit more challenging than you might think. Here’s some tips that can help you out!

Call of Duty’s Games of Summer competition is finally live. After being teased during Warzone’s Season 5 announcement and officially revealed during the Reloaded mid-season update, players can finally jump into a slew of trial runs in order to compete against other countries.

On the surface, these trials are pretty straightforward. Players either have to run through levels as fast as they can or hit targets. That being said, the trials themselves are pretty brutal, so here are some tips to help you out during your time in the event.

Enabling automatic tactical sprint can help you immensely in the Games of Summer.

Enable Automatic Tactical Sprint

This can be the difference between making that gold ranking or being stuck with silver. Enabling automatic tactical sprint allows you to not have to worry about making sure that sprint button is clicked or not. Instead, you can just press your stick forward (or press ‘W’ on your keyboard) and be sure that you’ll automatically be sprinting at your fastest.

Enabling automatic tactical sprint is quite simple.

  1. While in-game, press the ‘pause’ button and scroll down to the ‘options’ tab.
  2. While on the ‘controller’ section, scroll down to the ‘movement’ sub-section.
  3. Find the automatic sprint option and change it to ‘automatic tactical sprint.’

For target-based challenges where you’re going to be standing still, this won’t do much, but for modes like ‘Risky Parkour’ and ‘Gun Course’ where you’ll be running around, this is going to help you out a ton.

Practice, practice, practice!

Like anything in life, you’ll only get better at something once you practice it a million times (maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but the point still stands), especially on levels like ‘Risky Parkour.’ Tou’ll more than likely have to run through it multiple times in order to get your run under 30 seconds.

It’s understandable if you don’t get that gold medal in your first, second, third, or even 50th attempt/. There are very few people who can. If you practice, however, you’ll get it eventually.

Know when to restart or even take a break

This is extremely important to remember when running through these trials. If you miss a jump, miss a target, or just really fail in any way, you need to back out and restart the trial. Gold ranking requires pretty much perfection, so anything short will require you restart, even if you’re right there at the end.

That being said, you’re going to get frustrated and you need to accept that it’s going to happen. Taking a break for 5 to 10 minutes and coming back can clear your head and allow you to get the ranking you so desperately desire.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
