New To Call of Duty
What is Call of Duty?
Call of Duty is a First Person Shooter (FPS) created by Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. Unlike most other esports titles, Call of Duty is played on a different title every season. The most recent release is always the one played on the circuit as the official Activision supported tournaments, that operate under the Call of Duty World League name, are held on that game.
What is Going On?
Two teams of five players each (four players before the 2019 Season) face off in a best of five series with three different game modes that each have their own objectives. Depending on the game, the modes may vary slightly but the mode order in the best of five series is typically Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, Capture the Flag/Uplink/Control, Hardpoint, Search and Destroy.
