There are not many streamers who would put their stream live, hop into a game of Blackout, and disregard high octane offensive gameplay for some old fashioned camping techniques.

However, Twitch streamer Aris Bakhtanians, known as AvoidThePuddle did exactly that in a recent game, when he jumped into a game of Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode and decided to sit in a corner and hide.

Rather than finding it boring, Aris found the experience invigorating, and went on a priceless rant about why he enjoyed camping so much.

“That was fun,” stated the American. “I love camping, it’s like the most exciting thing you can do!”

“Looking at that door, listening to everything happening outside, imagining what what’s going on out there but knowing that you don’t want anything to do with it!

“I want to know what’s going on out there, but not enough to open this door. So I’ll just listen and watch that number of people go down. Woo, that shit is hype,” laughed the former Soul Caliber World Champion.

Aris continued to think about the positives of camping, telling his chat: “You hear gunshots outside, number goes down. Like, damn! That could’ve been me! I’m in here though so I’m safe. Man, that shit is hype!”

Blackout has already provided fans of popular streamers some hilarious moments. Recently, Ninja fell through the map thanks to some questionable driving by Shroud, while Seagull got unfortunately crushed by a falling loot crate.

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.
