Everything you need to know about CDL Fortune’s Keep $100k resurgence event: Stream, format, teams, prize

Los Angeles Guerrillas won the last CDLR event… can they go back-to-back?

The Call of Duty League is hosting its second $100,000 Resurgence Warzone tournament of 2022 this weekend, starting on Saturday, October 15th. This time, it'll be on the Fortune's Keep map.

The previous event, which happened midway through the Vanguard CDL season, was on Rebirth Island.

The two-day event will feature two semi-finals and a final across the weekend. 32 teams will have the chance to take home the their share of the $100k prize. All 12 teams from the Call of Duty League will enter teams into the event.

Half of the teams will come from Open Qualifiers, which were available only to players playing from North America. These 16 teams have been split into two groups of eight, half in each of the two semi-finals.

The other eight teams in each semi-final will be made up of: six teams fielded by CDL franchises and two teams that are invited to the tournament from Activision.

The event will be scored by a mixture of kills and placements. Teams who can combine high-kill games with strong placements will do the best in the tournament. Each kill earns a player's team one point on the CDLR leaderboard.

Placement multipliers:

  • 1st - 2x points
  • 2nd-4th - 1.8x points
  • 5th-7th - 1.6x points
  • 8th-10th - 1.4x points
  • 11th-13th - 1.2x points
  • 14-16th - 1x points


The event will have a $100,000 prize split between the teams that finish highest. Only teams who take part in the finals stage of the event will be able to compete for the prize pool of the event. The top eight teams take home prizes. Activision split that between all three players in the team.

  • 1st - $30,000
  • 2nd - $21,000
  • 3rd - $15,000
  • 4th - $12,000
  • 5th - $9,000
  • 6th - $6,000
  • 7th - $4,000
  • 8th - $3,000
