One savvy Call of Duty: Warzone player has taken inspiration from Rainbow Six Siege and Apex Legends’ Pathfinder in devising a concept that would be perfect to tackle campers in Verdansk.

Warzone sports a number of metas which can vary from game to game. One match you find yourself dodging vehicles left, right and centre, the next you might find yourself inundated with snipers taking the high ground.

It is the latter which one shrewd Redditor has devised a solution for, by taking inspiration from Infinity Ward’s battle royale counterpart, Apex Legends.

Rooftop campers are usually armed with snipers, making it that much harder to take them down from their post.

Despite being set in the futuristic Titanfall universe, Apex Legends has a number of features which would work well in Verdansk — such as how teams drop into the map to avoid team splitting in the early stages.

And one Reddit user has taken inspiration from everyone’s favorite MRVN, Pathfinder, when constructing the perfect concept to take down those pesky rooftop campers.

Rayledare created the ‘Grappling Hook’ as a buyable item from Buy Stations for $2000, which would allow players to scale buildings within a few seconds, as opposed to having to climb the seemingly endless flights of stairs.

As per Rayledare’s post, the Grappling Hook would allow players to attack a building from all angles, as it would also come equipped with an ‘Elevator Tool’ for “fast elevation.”

Just like in Rainbow Six Siege, the player would be able to simultaneously use their primary weapon — meaning that if a player takes shots, you won’t be in a compromised position.

To balance the utility, they would be deployed as a one-time use item and would create specific sound cues to alert players of the oncoming threat.

One user vouched towards the notion of the grapple, as they commented: “As long as the grapple gives fair audio warning and time for the defenders to react, I don’t see how offering the option damages the game for anyone…”

In terms of what you can do right now, another player improvised and conjured the perfect solution for wiping out enemies that set up shop on rooftops, by utilizing a Precision Airstrike from beneath their feet.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
