Photo credit: MLG A competitive Call of Duty team made history over the weekend by becoming the first European team to win a major tournament on U.S. soil. Call of Duty pro teams had battled for four weeks to earn a spot in Infinite Warfare’s CWL Global Pro League Stage One Playoffs. The top 16 teams were pared down to 8 for this weekend’s matches in Columbus, Ohio for a share of a $500,000 prize pool. Of the eight teams in the Playoffs, the U.K. and Irish team Splyce was the last European team standing, and they took the fight all the way to the Grand Finals on Sunday, May 28. Team members Trei “Zer0” Morris, Jordan “Jurd” Crowley, Dylan “MadCat” Daly, and Ben “Bance” Bance faced off against Luminosity Gaming, who were considered underdogs for the event but played exceptionally well over the weekend. Luminosity put up a huge fight, but Splyce took the series 3-2. Splyce’s first place win netted them $212,500 and the title of the new champs of Infinite Warfare. Trei “Zer0” Morris also made history as the first-ever European MVP of a North American tournament. Advertisement READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

It’s like the Call of Duty version of extreme couponing. Last weekend, Infinite Warfare’s Double XP weekend allowed many players to stack up bonuses and challenges to snag over a million XP from just one multiplayer match. One enterprising streamer even racked up 2.5 million XP in a single game. First, players save up the Double XP tokens that they randomly obtain through Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Rare Supply Drops to use during the Double XP weekends. They also wait to complete in-game challenges that award extra XP, saving them for these special weekends. So they rack up more XP per match, which is automatically doubled, then doubled again. The weapon camo challenges, which challenge you to pull off skillful moves with certain weapons to unlock new camouflage for them, are a popular choice for this method, because each gun in the game has its own challenges for each of which you gain XP once you earn the Gold camo. Beautiful exploitation of all these elements is what led YouTuber and Twitch streamer Fifakill to rack up a whopping 2,554,932 XP in a single match of Domination last weekend.

Infinity Ward has released a new update for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with the aim of adjusting the R-C8 and addressing some general issues. Here are the patch notes: • Adjusted the R-C8 – Meteor variant no longer deals mid-air fall damage (aside from the initial drop) when boosting in the air. Also fixed a bug where ground pounds for the Meteor were not always successfully activating • Fixed an issue that caused the Trinity Rocket side missiles to move too slowly • Various map fixes • Drone Package – Fuse: We now remove any disowned crates when the owner disconnects from the match. Also reduced the lifetime of the crate to 60 seconds • Uplink: Throwback – Added collision to bounce the drone back instead of resetting in 15 potential spots around the Press Box (areas where the player would be unable to reach the drone) • Adjusted the Synaptic sprint out fire times for the LMGs and Snipers to be in line with all other Rigs (time it takes to shoot the weapon when the fire button is pressed while sprinting) • Fix for an issue where assist scores would not add to scorestreak progress READ FULL…

The $49.99 season pass for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gets you four map packs with four new multiplayer maps each. What it doesn’t guarantee is that these new maps will actually come up in multiplayer matches online. In my experience so far, playing a DLC map is like finding a unicorn. Advertisement You can own Infinite Warfare’s first DLC package Sabotage, released on January 31, and play for hours and hours and never see any of its maps pop up in the rotation. This is a huge shame, because this pack has some really nice multiplayer maps: Noir is a night map in a futuristic Brooklyn setting, but I’ve personally only played it once since the Sabotage DLC was added into the regular rotation. Continuum, the 2nd map pack released on April 18, can currently only be played in special playlists devoted to Continuum maps only. Put simply, if you want to play the four most recent DLC maps, you have to play a Team Deathmatch or Mixed game mode playlist that only rotates those four maps. So everyone who purchased the DLC and wants to play the Continuum maps must replay the same four maps over and over….
