YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem hosted yet another running of his popular Warzone Wednesday tournament series on April 29, and we’ve got a full recap, final placements, the bracket, and everything else you need to catch up with all of the Call of Duty action.

Part of KEEMSTAR’s recently launched KeemPark project, Warzone Wednesday is a weekly competition featuring Call of Duty’s new battle royale.

$20,000 and tournament glory were once again on the line as the star-studded list of participants went head-to-head in what was another exciting affair.

$20K Warzone Wednesdays Week 6 recap

The sixth week of KEEMSTAR’s Warzone competition featured many of the usual suspects teaming up for duos competition. From NoahJ456 and Merk, to King Richard and Clayster, these star-studded pairings battled through multiple rounds of competition until just one team remained.

Cruising through the upper bracket, British YouTuber Vikkstar123, and his teammate ‘Itz_WarsZ,’ put on a clinic, toppling the likes of Nadeshot and Cloakzy on their way to the finals. Week 5 winners Tommey and bobbypoff were there to greet them in the final matchup, however.

Ultimately, back to back event wins weren’t quite in the cards as Vikkstar and his duo had other plans in mind. After a back and forth series and even a bracket reset, it was Vikkstar and Itz_WarsZ that came out on top in Week 6 of Warzone Wednesdays.

Format & rules

Warzone Wednesday is a double-elimination tournament that employs a format commonly known as ‘kill-race,’ as the teams matched up against each other in the bracket must queue into a Quads lobby together, so while they’re technically teammates in-game, they are opponents for the purposes of the tourney.

The objective is to try and get more eliminations than the other team, and after two standard Warzone games, the pair with the most kills advances to the next round.

As is standard with double-elimination competitions, the team that makes it out of the Winners Bracket will have to just win one series in the Grand Final to be crowned champions, while the Losers Bracket winner will have to win two.

As for the prize pool, the entirety of the $20,000 will go to the winning team, so two players will end the day each $10,000 richer.

How to get Flaming Pumpkin Head in Warzone & Modern Warfare

The Halloween Event in Modern Warfare & Warzone has brought in a whole bunch of new content for players to sink their teeth into — but one thing that players are chasing is the new Pumpkin Head and Flaming Pumpkin Head look.

As most uber-popular games do nowadays, Infinity Ward are capitalizing on the Halloween period with their own celebrations, including the Haunting in Verdansk Warzone event, new Operator packs with spooky skins and cosmetics and the Zombie Royale game mode.

With the new Trick or Treat rewards, you can also loot chests to find fun new blueprints, such as the Cleaver melee weapon that are exclusive to the Halloween event.

That said, the new Pumpkin Head style isn’t something you can pick up from the store or on your Battle Pass, and requires you to complete something in-game.

The Haunting of Verdansk event has brought iconic horror characters Leatherface and Jigsaw to Warzone.

Killstreak for Flaming Pumpkin head

The Pumpkin Head comes in two variants — either its regular version or, if you’re good enough, it sets alight too, letting you run around with a Flaming Pumpkin Head as you decimate enemies in the game.

Unfortunately, though, it’s not something you can equip. If you want to adorn the Pumpkin Head in multiplayer, you have to go on a 3 killstreak.

If you want to go one up and have a Flaming Pumpkin Head, though, you have to actually go on a 10 killstreak, which is significantly harder than 3, but makes the pumpkin ever more impressive. You will, however, lose it upon death.

How to get the Pumpkin Head in Warzone

It’s worth noting that this doesn’t work the same in Warzone as it does in multiplayer. While many believe the pumpkin head can be earned through a 3 killstreak in Warzone, this isn’t actually true.

So far, it seems the only way to get the pumpkin head in Warzone is to pick up a juggernaut, which automatically comes with the head attached as standard during the Haunting of Verdansk event.

Of course, while players who come up against you and your lit pumpkin head will know that you’re evidently a good player, it does make you a lot easier to see, so beware as enemies make more of an effort to hunt you out and stop you from staying low-key, especially if you’re seeking even higher killstreaks.
