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.

OpTic Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout ahead of CDL launch

The competitive Call of Duty season is almost upon us, with the CDL launching on January 23, and Envoy’s AK74u could prove one of the most important in getting OpTic Chicago some all-important championship wins.

The AK74u is the go-to SMG for all competitive Black Ops Cold War players. While the MP5 was the main one when the game first dropped, a subsequent nerf saw the 74u take top spot and maintain it ever since.

While Envoy’s original loadout back in November was impressive, this one is a complete change-up, and seems to be the meta build for most top pros who run it.

Taking to Nuketown ‘84 for a 1v1 against teammate FormaL, both were using the AK74u — and it absolutely shreds.

The AK74u is the best-in-class SMG.

As mentioned, this looks to be the meta build for most pros, but Envoy is by far one of the most impressive SMG players in the Call of Duty League, so it definitely looks great in his hands.

Here’s the attachments Envoy uses on the gun:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 5.45
  • Barrel: 9.3” Extended
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Handle: GRU Elastic Wrap

Attachments at 8:40

If you’re looking to maximize your abilities with an SMG in hand, Envoy is one of the best people to look at, and with the launch of League Play in BOCW seemingly imminent, now’s the perfect time to get used to this build.

This may look slightly different from what you see in public matches, with certain attachments banned or not viable in a competitive space, so it’s well worth familiarizing yourself with.

Whether or not this remains the meta throughout the year isn’t yet known; we expect a number of weapon balancing changes throughout the year, but how this affects the 74u isn’t clear.
