For the last time in 2019, Code Red will throw another tournament, this time featuring Gunfight. We’ve seen tons of other tournaments use the Modern Warfare 2v2 game mode with plenty of success. Gunfight was designed to be played in a tournament-style fashion by Infinity Ward.
Here’s a small sample list of who will be competing:
- Guy “DrDisrespect” Beahm
- “Seth “Scump” Abner
- Matthew “FormaL” Piper
- Michael “shroud” Grzesiek
- Ian “Crimsix” Porter
- James “Clayster” Eubanks
- Tyler “TeeP” Polchow
- Austin “Pamaj” Pamajewon
Others have yet to be announced, but more streamers and pro players can be expected. The tournament will also feature qualifiers for contestants who want to earn their way in. The link to sign up for the qualifiers can be found at BoomTV.
The prize pool for the Code Red tournament is set at $25,000. When it begins, the bracket will be posted so you can see any potential juicy matchups. One we’re hoping for is Crimsix against his former OpTic teammates, Scump and FormaL.
