Those who lose will drop down into the losers bracket, where they need to win “best of one” games to stay in the tournament, and then win a “best of two” in the losers finals.

The winners of each bracket will then compete in the grand final, with the $25,000 prize pool split between the top three teams.

  • 1st: $15,000
  • 2nd: $7,000

Code Red Warzone tournament anti-cheat

In order to combat cheaters, BoomTV has set strict rules players must follow before starting the tournament.

Warzone player dropping in

PC players are required to stream, must have VODS (past broadcasts) enabled, and should begin their stream 10-15 minutes before the tournament starts.

Before launching Warzone, they must scroll through task manager so that Boom TV staff can see what they have running. Then they must launch Warzone with task manager still running, and scroll through it again.

And to stop players from ‘smurfing’ by using a lower skilled account to avoid skill-based matchmaking, competitors must play on their main account.

A new email being sent by NVIDIA to as part of their newsletter claims that DLSS support for Call of Duty: Warzone is coming up.

The email, which is sent to those subscribed to NVIDIA’s newsletter, states that Warzone will receive DLSS support starting on April 22.

April 22 is the expected date for Season 3 patch update for Call of Duty: Warzone.

A picture of the email was shared on Twitter by user @LeonardoLeal.

Only the subject line of the email reveals the details: “Warzone DLSS Launching 4/22.” No where else in the email is Warzone’s support of DLSS mentioned, nor is it on NVIDIA’s website.

DLSS, or NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), is a new feature that NVIDIA launched alongside their recent graphic cards to up the performance of games through AI rendering technology.

The NVIDIA site describes it as a “is groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on GeForce RTX™ GPUs. DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for your games.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War does support NVIDIA DLSS, and the company mentioned support for Warzone was coming soon.

Here’s a video of DLSS running on Black Ops Cold War and the difference it brings:

Raven Software teased first information on the Season 3 changes in a Twitter thread this week, stating that Warzone will see changes including weapon updates, Roze skin changes, and more to be announced.

As of now, neither NVIDIA or Activision have confirmed DLSS support is set for April 22 beyond this one email. We have reached out for a comment.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.
