Treyarch has announced its Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 “Champs Week” rewards that players will receive in both multiplayer, Blackout, and Zombies.

The final competitive event of the Black Ops 4 season kicks off on Wednesday, August 14, and runs through to August 18, and Treyarch is marking the celebration with a few days of in-game rewards for players.

There are, sadly, no cosmetics or even free supply drops, even though they would be very welcome, but instead, players can get their hands on a few helpful boosts that will see them level up quicker in multiplayer, blackout, and zombies. 

TreyarchBlackout players can earn levels quicker with the new Quad Feed event.

Starting at 10 AM PT/1 PM EST and 6 PM BST on Monday, August 12, players will receive double XP in multiplayer for both their own levels and weapons. Players in Blackout will also be rewarded with double merits towards their Blackout level.

In Zombies, Treyarch is handing over 2x Nebulium Plasma so you can grind your ways through rounds of zombie hordes in a bid to claim those all-important Elixirs and Talismans before you start again. 

This bonus quad-feed event will not run all the way through until Championship Sunday, however, as it ends in the days leading up to the end of the prestigious tournament. 

Black Ops 4 players will only have until 10 AM PT/1 PM EST and 6 PM BST on Friday, August 16 to earn those boosts and attempt to rank up before a brand new CoD Champs victor is crowned and written into the history books. 

Fans from across the world will tune in to watch OpTic Gaming try to reclaim their crown, 100 Thieves try and cement themselves as the best Black Ops 4 team around, and to see if an end of season victory in on the cards for the resurgent eUnited

It remains to be seen if Treyarch has anything else up their sleeve for a further celebration as the Black Ops 4 competitive season comes to a close but anything else would be a bonus on top of double XP.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.
