Félix ‘Call of Duty franchise and while he’s been enjoying some aspects of the new title, his fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing during a broadcast on November 4. 

During one of the missions included in the single player mode, his AI teammates were remaining particularly cautious as he approached a closed door. That didn’t stop him from running full steam ahead, though, and what happened next was comical to say the least. 

ActivisionCall of Duty: Modern Warfare’s campaign mode is proving to be very popular already.

The former Overwatch professional player sprinted right up towards the entrance and decided to smash it open, only to find that there was a tripwire on the other side – blowing his brains out. “OK, I guess that’s why they didn’t want to go fast,” he said.

Seemingly not taking the hint, xQc walked right up the same door again and tried to open. In fairness, this time more delicately. Boom, dead again. 

On a third time of asking, he was met with the same reply again as a third huge explosion broke out in front of his laughing fans – asking his fans what he should do as an alternative. 

“I’m done. What do you do then?” he added, firing his weapon towards the door in an attempt to set it off. Just seconds later, he resorted to using a grenade but even that never went to plan either. 

The explosive he tossed at the door came rolling right back towards him and eliminated the teammates, who just stood there waiting to die. He puffed out his cheeks and looked completely finished, but it wasn’t long until he found a solution to his problem. 

The Canadian approached the door much slower than before, learning from past mistakes, and the time for fails was soon over as it crept open slightly, allowing him to defuse the explosive. 

Whether or not more of these hilarious moments will come from xQc’s campaign streams in the future remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, the chat loved every second of it.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
