Let’s begin with the recent achievements, 6M players were observing Verdansk on the launch day and now that number has increased to 60M.
The game also received some updates, you can now play in teams of 4 people and duos will be added in future, new guns appeared to Gulag and the developers added Classic Battle Royale mode without contracts and a second chance in the game.
Devs also included some Easter Eggs in the new patch. Now you can find Bunker 11 on the map and if you solve the mystery, you’ll find new unique weapon, but it’s not just about the guns, it’s a direct hint at new content in the game’s lineup, some people assume it’s the announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4.
Let’s move on to the tournaments. At the end of March, Twitch Rivals dedicated a weekend to Warzone.
90 stars of the gaming industry fought in each region, and NA region is leading with the peak of 268K viewers and 2,1M Hours Watched.
Dr Disrespect’s team won on the first day and the second place was taken by ImMarksman’s team.
On the second day former Ghost Gaming streamer Aydan took the first place and the second is for CDL analyst TeePee.
Vvassago, Gotaga and pro PUBG player Recrent were playing in the EU region. North American tournament was watched only by English-speaking spectators, but in EU it’s different, French-speaking spectators concluded the biggest part of the peak - 46K, then German - 38K and only then English - 22K spectators.
Charity events continued to appear in Call of Duty: Warzone.
The first in line is the Fight 2 Fund from FaZe Clan, which featured the popular streamers WarsZ, Vikkstar123 and Dirty.
Although the 4th week of the Fight 2 Fund gathered 45K peak viewers and 105K Hours Watched, it still didn’t beat the result of Fight 2 Fund #1, which collected 318K Hours Watched and 103K viewers at the peak.
Budlight Seltzer Charity Royale is worth special attention, last year this organizer arranged such event in Overwatch, and now he switched to Warzone. Many professional athletes such as baseball player Pete Alonso, hockey player Ryan Strome and basketball player Eric Paschall took part in the tournament. The casters were Chris Puckett and Alex Mendez.

Code Red Charity Warzone Tournament by BoomTV leads in our comparison of charity events. Hours Watched concluded 632K and 115K spectators watched the event on the peak. But if you compare the results with previous Code Green Warzone tournament, you’ll see that the statistical numbers are half less. The CoD hype calmed down a little.
Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant also held its Chipotle Warzone Challenge, with the prize pool of $25,000 and a year’s supply of free burritos, and sent another $25,000 to charity.
