Activision and Infinity Ward have announced the launch of the Gunfight 2v2 Tournament system in a beta version inside of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – available starting today on all platforms.
This tournament system was announced back during the 2v2 Gunfight Alpha in August as a way to compete and level up in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Gunfight mode. It allows players to be match made into tournaments in a bracket structure and compete alongside a friend throughout the tournament. The brackets auto update and allow players to move up the system.
Here’s the details from Activision Blog:
Rules of Play
Gunfight is an intense cage match where players are given one life, one randomly chosen loadout, and one teammate to head into battle and eliminate the opposition. The gameplay of Gunfight remains the same during the tournament, but they are a few other things you need to know about on the road to victory.
The tournament is single elimination with 32 players, 16 teams, and 8 rounds on the way to being crowned the victor. You advance with a win or go back to the lobby with a defeat. For each victory you earn XP and other rewards. For winning the tournament for the first time you can earn a high tier cosmetic reward and XP!
The tournament is bracket style, and you’ll be able to see the teams on both sides of the bracket. You’ll wait at a menu screen before the match and have a little bit of time to choose your Operator and discuss game strategy. Afterwards you’ll load into the game and play your first round. If you win, you’ll advance to the next round. Just note, you may have to wait in the lobby until your opponent finishes their match.
