With reigning champs Atlanta FaZe on the sidelines, who will take the next Call of Duty League title? We look ahead to CDL Seattle, where Huntsmen will be looking to return to winning ways.

CDL Florida saw Atlanta FaZe take home top honors, after both the Mutineers and RØKKR crashed out in the group stages. Following a complete roster shuffle, OpTic Gaming LA will be looking to go one step further and take their first-ever CDL event as they head into their third consecutive tournament.

Seattle Surge, Chicago Huntsmen and their local rivals, Los Angeles Guerrillas, will each have something to say about that, as they’re welcomed back into the fold. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of CDL Seattle.

Will Huntsmen claim back their position at the top of the standings?

When is CDL Seattle?

CDL Seattle will take place between May 22-24. Given the current global situation, the Call of Duty League will continue to operate with an online format — meaning that events will now pan across three days as opposed to two.

The event format hasn’t changed, so the first team from each group to score two wins will head straight to the semifinals on May 24. Teams who manage to get through with two wins and one loss will shortly follow.

Will Huntsmen bounce back from a poor run of form and get back to winning ways?

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. Here’s how both groups weigh up.

Group A

  • London Royal Ravens
  • Los Angeles Guerrillas
  • Seattle Surge
  • New York Subliners

Group B

  • Paris Legion
  • Chicago Huntsmen
  • Minnesota RØKKR
  • OpTic Gaming Los Angeles

Kicking off things in Group A will be the Royal Ravens versus Guerrillas. Both teams are yet to go head-to-head, but the Brit’s will be looking to get off to a good start after a poor dip in form from the previous two events.

The hosts have a tough opener against New York Subliners, but after Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt recently stepped back into the starting lineup, this could be the shift in momentum the squad needs.

On the other side of the fence in Group B, Legion will be locking horns with Huntsmen (who are rumored to be shuffling things around with their starting roster). Meanwhile, OpTic will have to fend off Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown and co., as RØKKR will be looking to bounce-back from their early exit at CDL Florida.

  • 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

Seattle will be looking to show the CDL what they’re capable of with the return of Enable.

CoD Mobile devs confirm iconic weapon coming in Season 14

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
