Warzone trio beat their own world record for kills in a single match

A Call of Duty trio keeps pushing the benchmark for the most dominant game in Warzone by, once again, setting the world record for most kills in a single game.

Time and again across battle royale titles, world record attempts for most kills in a single game are thwarted by dozens of factors ranging from loot RNG to just unlucky drops.

But a team made up of Mark ‘Zepa’ Zepackic, ‘Lymax,’ and ‘Micka’ basically have these deep runs down to a science with yet another Warzone accolade.

From the 150 players in a given Warzone match, this trio bested over half of the lobby for a world record.

In the early life cycle of the battle royale, the Australian collective has outdone its best game multiple times with increasingly refined tactics. That’s led them to an astonishing 85 kill game, the best seen in the title thus far.

“Night after night we just keep raising the bar,” Lymax said of the accomplishment. “This time we broke our previous Trios world record with a ridiculous 85 kill game. We were so calm throughout it, had no idea until the very end that we were even close.”

Employing everything from creative rotations, sharp comms, their favorite loadouts, clutch decision-making, and more, the gameplay of the record run shows some of the best Warzone highlights to come out of the community.

The three-man group have tasted similar victories before, coming off a then-record of 78 kills, and before that, a tally of 73 kills with Micka and Lymax teaming up with a player called ‘SETZ.’

Zepa led the charge in the 85-bomb match with 34 kills to his name while dealing a whopping 11,222 damage to opponents. Meanwhile, Lymax claimed the last kill in the match to get his 30th elimination with 8,629 damage, along with Micka’s 21 kills and 6910 damage.

At the tail end of their video, one of the players can be heard saying their match “felt like an average game” before realizing they had broken their record, again.

It’s this kind of dominant form that separates the best from the rest, letting the trio cap the world record three times in a row.

Getting 85 kills out of a possible 147 kills is a little over 50% of the server, meaning there’s still a ton of room for the trio to outdo themselves once again.

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
