While teams like Huntsmen and FaZe were expected to be favorites for the final event of the year, the London Royal Ravens seem to be finding their form at the perfect time and are looking as dangerous as any of the remaining contenders for the 2020 CDL Championship.

From stumbling in some of the earlier CDL Home Series events to their impressive loser’s bracket run in Playoffs, which has guaranteed them a top-4 finish heading into the CDL Championship Weekend, the Royal Ravens are hoping to carry their momentum and contend for the inaugural Call of Duty League title.

Following early struggles, London brought in Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris, from the New York Subliners, to their starting lineup in place of Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley, and instantly found themselves in a grand final at CDL Seattle.

The CDL’s dark horse roster will be hoping to have similar performances starting on August 29, as they face up against fan-favorites Chicago Hunstmen in a do-or-die series for Top 3.

The most popular Warzone loadouts in September have been revealed, proving which weapons dominated the meta towards the end of Season 5.

The most popular weapons in Warzone have slowly changed over time, as Modern Warfare players have shifted away from the multiplayer weapons they’re most comfortable with such as the M4A1 assault rifle and figured out how to maximize their chances of winning in Verdansk.

Now, six months after release, players are discovering the very best strategies while also figuring out whether the regularly-added DLC weapons are viable in the game.

As a result, we see certain loadouts dominating in Warzone: but there’s also a decent amount of variation as players stick to what they’re most comfortable with.

Elsewhere, the MP5 crops up twice in the top eight, with slight variations, while snipers are opting for the HDR or Kar98 to get them through Verdansk. Obviously, as became prominent throughout September, the Origin 12 shotgun was also the sixth-most popular weapon in the game.

It will be interesting to see how this list changes in October, with new weapons added and some balancing applied to existing guns. We might see some shifts in the meta as a result.
