The Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament is almost here, giving players a chance to earn a chunk of the massive $250,000 prize pool. Here’s everything that’s confirmed for this Warzone event and how you can enter it.

When looking for Warzone content to watch, the first call for many fans is Twitch. From Warzone masters to professional CoD players, and even amateurs looking to make a name for themselves, competition comes thick and fast, and now Twitch is hosting their own tournament with a huge reward up for grabs.

The Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament will once again pit Warzone players against each other, and this time it will be for a grand prize of $250,000. Here’s everything you need to know about the event, including how to register to compete, when it will take place, and what it entails.

When is the Twitch Rivals Warzone event?

The event’s Open Qualifiers will start at 2PM PT / 5PM ET on December 3. This is when the teams that move forward will be determined and while the Qualifiers are open, you can only join them if you’re a Twitch Partner or Twitch Affiliate.

Two days will then be spent trying to pick the absolute best players from the established teams. On both December 8 and December 16, the teams will compete against each other in the tournament starting 2PM PT | 5 PM ET onwards.

How to participate in the Twitch Rivals Warzone event

If you’re a Twitch streamer then just head over to the Twitch Rivals website to register yourself. The site will check if you’re a captain or a teammate and will confirm that you’re over 18. Then just put in your email address and select the right options to finish your registration.

If it’s successful then you’ll be notified of your progress. Unfortunately, not every Affiliate and Partner will be able to compete, so keep that in mind when applying.

Twitch Rivals Warzone format

Usually Warzone tournaments would have you compete in straightforward kill-races against other players, but they’re changing things up for this event. If you make it to the first Show Day, you will witness 49 trios competing against each other in five private lobbies.

Teams will get points for kills, and the 24 teams that have the highest amount of accumulated points will advance through to Round Two. Five other lobbies will be filled with teams competing against each other on the second Show Day.

If you want a more thorough understanding of the point structure and prizes available then we’ve outlined them below:

When does Cold War & Warzone Season 6 end? Vanguard Season 1 start date

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is set to make way for Vanguard Season 1, here’s everything we know about when it will happen.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is beginning to wind down, with Call of Duty: Vanguard on the horizon. We break down when the final BOCW and Warzone season ends, and the first Vanguard chapter starts.

Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 6 is going out with a bang thanks to its Halloween-themed event.

The patch notes for The Haunting have confirmed that there will be no Season 6 Reloaded, which have been commonplace over in recent months.

Now that we know that Verdansk’s final season won’t be Reloaded, when will Season 6 end and Vanguard Season 1 start?

Cold War & Warzone Season 6 end date

warzone and cold war season 6

The sixth season of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is due to end on Thursday, December 2, 2021.

Season 5 ended on October 7, the first Thursday of the month, and it appears that Season 6 will follow the same while sticking roughly to the two-month structure that Raven and Treyarch used previously.

As mentioned earlier, there will be no Reloaded update this time around in order to make way for the long-awaited arrival of Vanguard integration into Warzone.

This isn’t to say that Black Ops Cold War will be forgotten, as Modern Warfare has still received content updates in the last year.

Vanguard Season 1 start date

Call of Duty: Vanguard cast

We’re expecting Season 1 of Vanguard, both in the standalone game and Warzone, to kick off in early December.

Cold War Season 6 ends on December 2, 2021, but there could be some transition time between the two like there was between Modern Warfare Season 6 and BOCW Season 1.

Vanguard will have been out nearly by this point, making it the ideal time to bring in the new Warzone map and WW2 weapons set to drop with the first season, as well as the long-awaited introduction of anti-cheat.

We’re still awaiting official confirmation on when Vanguard Season 1 will begin, so be sure to check back here for future updates.

Horrifying Warzone The Haunting bug turns player into 3rd-person monstrosity

A creepy new Warzone Halloween bug turned an Operator into a third-person monster with a mangled body and arms drooping to the side.

Warzone’s The Haunting Halloween event is here, and one player got more than they bargained for after a new bug turned their character into a deformed third-person monstrosity.

Warzone’s Haunting event is here, bringing horror movie icon Ghostface to a nighttime version of Verdansk. There’s plenty to be scared of as The Haunting event has sought to make Warzone even more intense and scary, with Scream’s Ghostface whispering in your ear, jumpscares in chests, and your Fear Meter ever rising.

But the scares ramped up even more as a player was hit with a presumably unintentional new bug that brought body horror to Verdansk.

Warzone the haunting event gameplay

‘chizel3d’ was playing the new Ghosts of Verdansk LTM and parachuted into Hospital. But, before they could land, the game switched to third-person, giving a full view of the horrors before them.

They were shocked and confused to see that their Operator was almost curled up inside themself, with their arms drooping down the sides and their gear bunched up on their back like a cursed Quasimodo.

Hovering above the ground, they ran around Hospital, picking up loot as they went. But with the distorted arms hanging down by the sides, chizel3d wasn’t able to pick up or fire any weapons.

Players in the replies were equally as shocked, with one user saying it’s “creepier than anything in the event so far.” chizel3d’s tweet was in reply to streamer and Warzone pro IceManIsaac, who said, “I’m seeing this in my nightmares tonight.”

However, chizel3d did fix the horrifying bug later by climbing on a ladder. Their POV immediately switched back to regular first-person and stayed that way for the rest of the game.

It’s unclear how widespread this issue is, as Raven Software hasn’t responded on their Trello Board or Twitter account.

The Haunting event has brought a great deal of exciting new content for Call of Duty: Warzone players to enjoy with one of the most popular being the Warzone Plot Twist blueprint, and here is how you can get your hands on the Warzone Plot Twist weapon blueprint.

Season 6 has been a very exciting time in the world of Warzone, as it has brought back the fan-favorite The Haunting event that had injected some spooky content for players to enjoy such as the Ghostface skin and the Ghosts of Verdansk game mode.

While the Operator skin of the high-profile SCREAM movie character is the main attraction of the Ghostface bundle, the Warzone Plot Twist weapon blueprint has become a very sought-after item.

Here is everything you need to know to add the Warzone Plot Twist blueprint to your inventory and dominate your enemies.

How to get Warzone Plot Twist blueprint

Players will find that they can get the Warzone Plot Twist blueprint by going to the Call of Duty store in either Call of Duty: Warzone or Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and purchase the SCREAM Operator Bundle for a total of 2,400 COD points.

Once you have purchased the SCREAM Operator Bundle, the Plot Twist blueprint will become available for you to equip and use in all of their future battles.

It comes equipped with some powerful attachments, so players who do not want to mess up the cosmetic look of this Plot Twist blueprint will find that they can without having to sacrifice looks for better attachments.

There is no doubt that players will see many others using the Plot Twist blueprint heading into the future of the Call of Duty battle royale game. A menacing force like Ghostface wouldn’t use a blueprint that couldn’t take down all of his enemies, so it should no doubt dominate all of your future opponents.
