Warzone Kill Race

Event Rules

General Overview

  • Teams will compete in as many Call of Duty Warzone matches as desired in order to obtain the highest scores in the allotted event time. The top scores will be submitted.

  • Each teammate must be registered to participate before the event start time. Teams with late registrants will not qualify to receive prizes.

  • In events with divisions, teams will be placed into divisions based on combined KD (Kill/Death Ratio). Please see each event page for division details.

  • Teams may begin the tournament late or leave early if they are satisfied with their score before the official end time.
    Teams must elect a Team Captain who will check in on the Discord and be responsible for submitting scores and receiving winnings (if 18+).

  • Team Captain must check into the Green Shell Games Discord with their team’s name prior to starting their first match. Check-in channel will open 30 minutes before the event begins.

  • One player must be streaming with archive mode enabled for the duration of all recorded matches so scores can be verified. If your live stream is lost for any reason during the event, restart the stream. Matches used in your reported score must be recorded in full to ensure accurate and fair score results.

Team Makeup

  • Individuals accepting winnings on behalf of the team must be 18 years of age or older. 

  • If the Team Captain is under 18, a Team Manager may be elected. The Team Manager must be 18 or older and is responsible for collecting winnings on behalf of the team. The Team Manager can be non-playing and does not need to register.

  • Events will be specified as Duos, Trios, or Quads. Teams must be playing in the corresponding Warzone lobby for the event. Teams may have less than the maximum number of players, but squad auto-fill is not allowed.

  • Any teams including players who have not registered for a ticket will be disqualified.

  • Offensive team names are prohibited. If your team name is deemed vulgar, profane, or otherwise inappropriate, you will be asked to change the name or a new name will be selected for you. If you would like to confirm the acceptability of a team name before registering, email Admin@GreenShellGames.com

  • Some events may have divisions while others will not. For details on divisions for a particular event, please see the event page.

  • In events without divisions, KD and Team KD are collected to inform for future events and ensure fair gameplay.

  • Divisions are divided by Team KD (Kill/Death Ratio). Team KD is the sum of all teammates' individual KDs.

    • Example: Teammate 1 has a KD of 0.80 and teammate 2 has a KD of 1.20. The total team KD is 2.00.

    • Individual KD can be found under Barracks > Warzone > Record > Kills.

      • Your individual KD is the number in the ratio column.

Match Rules

  • Accepted platforms for gameplay are: Playstation, Xbox, and PC.

  • Cross platform must be enabled.

  • Teams may leave their match early to start a new match.

  • Any matches starting later than the event end time will not be counted. Matches started up until 1 minute before the event end time can be played to completion. Matches can run over, but they cannot start late.

  • No reverse boosting (lowest KD teammate cannot host for team).

  • No dummy accounts (Activision account must have more than 25 matches played).

  • No hacking, cheating, or exploiting (no using hacks, exploiting in-game glitches, or using any type of cheats which give an unfair advantage).

  • Activision server issues are not under the control of Green Shell Games and although unfortunate, they affect everyone and teams will not be given special consideration or extra time due to server-related issues.

Streaming Requirements

  • At least one player must be streaming for the duration of all matches submitted for score. Twitch is recommended, but other streaming services are allowed.

  • Streamers must have archive mode enabled to allow time for scoring review and verification.

  • Streams must include #GreenShellGames in the title.

  • Any streaming platform is acceptable so long as it is able to be accessed publicly.

  • Matches used for a team’s recorded score must be streamed in full. If connection to your stream is lost or disconnected during the event, restart the stream. Special consideration will not be made for technical or server errors and no extra time will be awarded to any team.

  • Any number of players may stream their team’s matches, but submission of multiple streams for a single match is not allowed.
    Streaming may begin 15 minutes before the event start time and must end no more than 45 minutes after the end time.

  • After each match used for scoring, the match results must be displayed on screen long enough to allow for GSG staff to verify the score (at least a few seconds).

  • A link to your streaming account must be included in signup information to allow Green Shell Games to find and verify scores. Any reported scores that cannot be verified will be marked as a 0.


Each team will receive 1 point per kill (combined kill count for team) in addition to points for match placement.


Placement points are as follows:

  • 1st place - 10 points

  • 2nd place - 9 points

  • 3rd place - 8 points

  • 4th place - 7 points

  • 5th place - 6 points

  • 6th place - 5 points

  • 7th place - 4 points

  • 8th place - 3 points

  • 9th place - 2 points 

  • 10th place - 1 point

  • 11th+ place - 0 points


Teams will submit their kill totals and placement points for their top scoring matches.  Number of contracts completed and highest individual kill count can also be submitted for tiebreakers (optional).


The number of matches counted differs by event. These matches will be combined for a total event score. Said another way:


(Match 1 Kills + Match 1 Placement) + (Match 2 Kills + Match 2 Placement) + (Match 3 Kills + Match 3 Placement) = Event Score


For example a team’s score card will look like this:

Match one:

  • Kills: 4

  • Match Placement: 1 (worth 10 points)

  • Total Match Score: 14


Match two:

  • Kills: 5

  • Match Placement: 1 (worth 10 points)

  • Total Match Score: 15


Match three:

  • Kills: 3

  • Match Placement: 2 (worth 9 points)

  • Total Match Score: 12


Total Event Score: 41


When teams are tied with the same score, the following tiebreakers apply:

  1. Number of contracts completed.

  2. Highest individual kill count.

Scores must be reported here no later than one hour after the event end time. Only the scores of your best matches will be counted. The number of matches counted differs by event. Failure to report will result in a 0 leaderboard score.

Information about prizes, number of matches counted, and divisions can be found on each event page.

Results will be posted and winning teams will be contacted via email within 24 hours following the event end time. At that time, all scores are final and not subject to appeal.


*Rules may be changed as necessary up to 72 hours before the event start. Players are responsible for reviewing the rules before each event and maintaining compliance with all event rules.
