Beyond the Summit to hold first CSGO RMR event of 2021

Beyond the Summit will host Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s first regional ranking tournament of 2021, according to tweets from both BTS and the official CSGO Twitter account.

The event is scheduled to take place starting on May 14, with a champion being crowned on May 30. It will feature open qualifiers for teams that want to compete. It’s also likely that any RMR points from last season will carry over to participating teams this year, meaning that all of North America’s big names should be in attendance. The announcement gives any teams wishing to switch regions around 45 days to make their move.

Beyond the Summit to host NA’s first CSGO regional ranking tournament

Valve created the RMR system last year after it was forced to postpone the ESL One Rio Major. The tournaments were meant to keep teams competitive in the long wait until Rio took place in November, but the event was ultimately canceledentirely. 2020 saw several more regional tournaments come together from there, with Valve announcing that PGL would host the 2021 Major in Stockholm, Sweden.

The reveal of North America’s first RMR tournament also came with changes to Valve’s posted rules for the tournaments. In unannounced changes to the rules, Valve will now allow substitute players before the regional competitions, but it will cost a team 20% of any regional ranking points it currently has. The news was accompanied by Beyond the Summit’s customary teaser trailer that showed off this year’s theme for the tournament.

It looks like a mysterious mashup of past and future for this year’s tournament, with the trailer featuring a standout Mirage play by MIBR’s Gustavo “yel” Knittel with shots of a fortune teller and crystal ball to break up the action. It’s possible that the trailer is another tease from Valve and the rumored changes to the popular map. Regardless, the trailer’s visuals are impressive, with slow-motion shots, stunning graphics, and a thumping soundtrack to hype up fans of competitive CSGO.

With the announcement of North America’s first regional major tournament, announcements for the rest of CSGO’s regions are likely on the way.

Fortnite World Cup Winner Nyhrox Joins Red Bull Gaming

The Red Bull Gaming team grows further with a Fortnite World Cup Champion.


Professional Fortnite player Emil “Nyhrox” Bergquist Pedersen is joining Red Bull Gaming as an esports athlete, the Norweigan confirmed today on Twitter. He adds himself to an extensive list of influential competitive gamers throughout history who hold the distinct honor of calling themselves a Red Bull Athlete. Nyhrox is one of only three players to achieve Fortnite’s most significant accomplishment in its four-year history.

He and former duo partner David “aqua” Wang journeyed across the pond in July of 2019 to claim their first Fortnite World Cup Championship. The European pair outplayed 49 of the world’s best tandems to earn that accolade and a cool $3M USD to split. Nyhrox channeled his extensive accomplishment into a deal with a premier presence in esports.

Nyhrox Announces Red Bull Gaming Sponsorship

The Norweigan joins all-around icon and former Fortnite superstar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins as a select few Red Bull-sponsored gaming athletes. “Officially a Red Bull Athlete,” wrote Nyhrox in a tweet earlier today. A picture included in the tweet shows Nyhrox in a Red Bull hat and several logos throughout his space.

The energy drink company has not acknowledged the signing on Twitter or their official website. This signing is a significant accomplishment for Nyhrox, a current member of the Noway-based Nordavind DNB esports organization.

Red Bull Gaming in History

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins poses with a Red Bull can in front of his gaming setup.

The team behind Red Bull involved themselves in esports very early in the going. Former professional Halo player David “Walsh” Walshy became the brand’s first ambassador and sponsored gaming athlete in 2006 while he and his team Final Boss dominated the Major League Gaming circuit. Walshy continued with the brand for an extended period throughout the remainder of his competitive gaming career.

Current 100 Thieves Owner and CEO – Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag – inked a deal with Red Bull Gaming during the height of his professional Call of Duty career in 2013 and reconnected in 2019 after 100 Thieves’ creation. Many other esports athletes have filtered in and out of Red Bull Gaming since 2006.

The addition of Nyhrox makes him the first full-fledged Fortnite professional to possess a solo sponsorship with the energy drink brand. While the deal’s exact ramifications are not clear at this point, we can expect a lot of content and perhaps an official statement regarding Nyhrox and Red Bull.

The best Origin 12 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2

Avatar

Published

on

When it comes to secondary weapons in Call of Duty: Warzone, the Origin 12 shotgun has been a mainstay. Not many players pay much attention to the secondary slot on their load out, but having a powerful backup weapon can make all the difference between a win and loss.

In recent seasons, weapons like the dual Diamatti pistols have dominated the secondary slot. However, before that it was the Origin 12 shotgun, which featured an overpowered loadout. Though it’s been nerfed since, it still features a great loadout in Season 2 that will help tremendously with close-range gunfights.

Best Origin 12 loadout in Warzone

Seeing that a shotgun’s biggest asset is its close-range damage, that is what the Origin 12’s recommended loadout focuses on. While players can increase the overall range of the weapon, close-range damage is what the primary weapon is for. With a shotgun, the focus should be on how to eliminate enemies who are 10 or so meters away.

To help with this, the Origin 12’s loadout features damage-boosting attachments. Also in use are attachments that allow the damage to be delivered as quickly and accurately as possible.

  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: Forge TAC Impaler
  • Body: 5mW Laser
  • Ammunition: 12 Round Mags
  • Stock: No Stock

The Choke and Forge TAC Impaler on the Origin 12 are the damage-boosting attachments. Both the Choke and Impaler increase damage range; with the former also tightening the pellet spread and the latter increasing muzzle velocity. Both attachments will help eliminate enemies in as efficient a manner as possible.

Furthering that cause is the 5mW Laser, which allows players to hip fire the Origin 12 instead of aiming down sights. However, if aiming down sights is needed, the No Stock attachment greatly increases the sprint-to-fire time for any close-range gunfights.

Finally, the 12 Round Mags simply allow players to take down more than one enemy without having to reload.

COD Mobile World Championship returns with bigger prize pool

Avatar

Published

on

Call of Duty (COD): Mobile World Championship returns with more ways to qualify globally and a two-million-dollar prize pool.

Activision is bringing back the worldwide championship for COD Mobile after the scene exploded in popularity last year. Beginning June 3, players from across the globe will have the chance to play for the ultimate prize. There are currently five levels to qualify before you can participate on the big stage, and it all starts with individual play.

“Picking up from last year’s competition, we’ve increased the prize money up for grabs and number of teams that can qualify,” said Matt Lewis, vice president of mobile at Activision, “So there are even more reasons for fans to prove they’ve got what it takes to be the best.”

The first stage is through the competitive queue already factored into the game. From there, individual players will slowly begin to form teams with friends or those at their skill level. Once teams are formed, those teams will qualify for the next stage. Teams that qualify at a regional level will compete online to move on to the next stage of the competition. Each region will have a group stage with qualified teams to play for prize money. Each major region, (Europe, North America, Japan, etc.) will have a crowned champion team.

COD Mobile gets a facelift for World Championship

Activision will be adding more regions based on the level of engagement they saw last season. These regions include South Asia and most of the Middle East, which has seen a spike in mobile gaming. They did not have the ability to broadcast to those regions despite the viewership numbers and are actively looking to expand.

The expansion into other regions also means new in-game platform outlets for those regions. When COD: Mobile goes live, you will see a watch feed directly linked in the app. From there you will be able to watch the action without having to search on Twitch or another platform. There are currently four supported languages for the embedded streams which you can choose based on your native language. Activision will continue to expand these languages to accommodate most of their major targeted regions.

Activision had the dreams of a global knockout tournament last year, but due to COVID-19, those plans were put on hold. This year Activision hopes to have a clear and concise path to success that anyone can achieve by playing. Watch out for when the latest season ofCOD: Mobile releases on June 3rd.

The best M4A1 loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2

Avatar

Published

on

The M4A1 in Call of Duty: Warzone has been a consistent option for players since the battle royale launched last year. While it’s certainly dropped off since then, and especially now in Season 2, it’s still a viable option for players looking to get away from the current meta. Of course, the current meta is really just the FFAR, AUG and CR-56 AMAX.

In Season 2 of Warzone, the meta has become too much for some players to bear. As such, they want to simply use a different weapon for a change of scenery. Well, there are few better options than the M4A1 and its balanced stats.

Best M4A1 loadout in Warzone

In order to compete with some of the top dogs in Warzone, the M4A1 needs some serious buffs in its loadout. For starters, the damage of the assault rifle needs a bump, as does the accuracy. While it shoots straight enough, players need as little recoil as possible when they’re going up against an AUG at range.

For these reasons, the recommended M4A1 loadout boosts these areas, as well as maintains some of its base strengths.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Stock M16 Grenadier
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This loadout does two things: increase damage and increase accuracy. With the Monolithic Suppressor and Stock M16 Grenadier, damage range is buffed tremendously. This should help players compete with the FFAR and CR-56 AMAX.

Further down the loadout, the Commando Foregrip and VLK 3.0x Optic are in use. The Commando Foregrip stabilizes the M4A1’s recoil, which is also helped by the VLK 3.0x Optic. This sight is a great middle ground in the various zooms that optics offer. However, if players want something a little less zoomed in, they can opt for the Corp Combat Holographic sight.
