Call of Duty will introduce its extraction-based mode DMZ in a $30,000 tournament later this month, Activision announced today. Call of Duty: DMZ Gauntlet will pit 16 teams of three against each other in a “variety of challenges” in the DMZ. The extraction-based mode à la Escape From Tarkov was first released this past November and is a departure from what CoD has done in the past. If you need more information about Call of Duty’s DMZ mode is surprisingly getting its own $30,000 tournament this month then read carefully and don’t forget to share with your friends.

Call of Duty’s DMZ mode is surprisingly getting its own $30,000 tournament this month :

In the DMZ, players roam Al Majra, Warzone 2’s massive map, and complete various objectives while trying to make it out with better gear. If the player dies, they lose all the loot they currently have, unless they have insured their weapons. It’s unclear what kinds of challenges the contestants for the DMZ Gauntlet will compete in, or who will participate. But the event takes place in five days and CoD’s tweets seem to indicate who fans would like to see attend, so it looks like the contestants are still up in the air.

The center of the Modern Warfare II universe, the city of Al Mazra within the United Republic of Adal is your first battlefield for Warzone 2.0. Those of you playing Modern Warfare II right now are getting some serious training on Al Majra. For example, the following multiplayer maps are subdivisions of this larger area:

• Al Bagra Fortress (Core Map)

• Embassy (Core Map)

• Zarqwa Hydroelectric (Core Map)

• Taraq (both Core and Battle Map)

• Sariff Bay (Battle Map)

• Sa’id (Battle Map)

Since this is the first major foray into a “competitive” version of the DMZ mode, which sees players fighting against AI combatants more often than other players, it should make for an interesting event for CoD fans to tune in to. CoD’s DMZ Gauntlet will take place on January 17th at 2PM CT on the official Call of Duty Twitch channel. They have also introduced a new area called Building 21, but it still does not survive. Players will find mysterious keys and Al Marzah and find out where they lead. Limited intelligence on access to a biological laboratory known as Building 21 will take players outside Al Mazrah and into an ultra-dangerous new area of the DMZ.
