New York Subliners Home Series will host some of the Call of Duty League’s finest talent, where the hosts will be looking to claim their first CDL tournament as the reigning champs sit on the sidelines.

Florida Mutineers tore through the competition at CDL Paris, making them the first team to win consecutive tournaments, as well as the first team to chalk up three event victories this season.

But with both Mutineers and Empire sitting out of CDL New York, there’s an opening for FaZe to extend their lead at the top of the standings. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of CDL New York.

When is CDL New York?

CDL New York will take place between July 10-12. As with all events since Dallas’ Home Series, the Call of Duty League will be continuing to use their online format.

As usual, The first team in each group to net two wins will earn a direct ticket to Sunday’s semifinals. Teams scraping through with two wins and a loss will follow them and meet the winner’s of the groups from the opposite side of the bracket.

There are two very different sides to the bracket at CDL New York.

All eight teams have been split into two groups. Two from each group will make it to the single-elimination bracket, while two will be heading home early.

CDL New York groups

Group A

  • Paris Legion
  • Toronto Ultra
  • Atlanta FaZe
  • Los Angeles Guerrillas

Group B

  • London Royal Ravens
  • Chicago Huntsmen
  • Minnesota RØKKR
  • New York Subliners

In Group A, Paris Legion will be looking to put their woes behind them, as they find themselves sinking towards the bottom of the CDL standings after eight losses on the bounce, which has negated their promising start to the season. Meanwhile, FaZe will be looking to make it to Sunday’s playoffs unscathed, as they have a relatively easy group compared with previous weeks.

On the flip side of the bracket, Group B is as stacked as they come. Huntsmen will be looking to continue their good form against Royal Ravens to give them the best possible start. The hosts face an unpredictable RØKKR, whose form has been a shell of their former selves, who seemed to excel in the LAN environment.

  • 1st Place – 50 CDL Points
  • 2nd Place – 30 CDL Points
  • 3rd/4th Place – 20 CDL Points
  • 5th/6th Place – 10 CDL Points
  • 7th/8th Place – 0 CDL Points

Best .50 GS handout loadout for Call of Duty: Mobile

The Desert Eagle, or the .50 GS as it’s known, is finally available in Call of Duty: Mobile. Once you get your hands on it, there are a few loadouts you might want to consider. 

Typically, with the start of a new Call of Duty: Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game add in a new weapon on top of the new characters, skins, perks, and maps. 

With the start of Season 12: Going Dark, the devs added new night mode maps – including Modern Warfare’s Hackney Yard – as well as everything they usually add, but they’ve added new events and challenges, notably, Small Arms. 

Completing the seven Small Arms challenges, in numerical order, will unlock the .50 GS handgun – which is just the Desert Eagle. It’s incredibly powerful, especially with a few different loadouts.

Best CoD Mobile close range loadout for .50 GS handgun

With it being a pistol, don’t expect to be using the .50 GS at long range. You might get some shots off, but it isn’t going to work as you might like. 

Instead, focus on getting up close and personal – even if that means shooting enemies in the back. For maximum damage at close to mid range, you’ll want an extended mag, a better trigger, and an extended barrel.

For these, take the MIP Extended Light Barrel, Match Grade Trigger, and Extended Mag A. Take a laser and a bit of tape too, for those panicky, unaimed shots. 

  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger

Alternatively, if you want to feel like you’re playing Modern Warfare 2, you can work in the Akimbo perk as well for a bit of additional damage.

This loadout comes courtesy of YouTuber TouchKing, who uses a muzzle, barrel, laser, and trigger action as well.

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Laser: RTC Laser 1mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger
  • Perk: Akimbo

The .50 GS can be made incredibly powerful with the Akimbo perk.

As for everything else, you can pretty much finish your loadout however you want – including perks, equipment, and whatever else you want to bring into the fight.
