Although Warzone 2 has plenty of regular tournaments with thousands on the line, the DMZ $30K gauntlet tournament will take the spotlight as Activision moves its focus onto the new extraction mode. Unlike the battle royale where players attempt to score as many points as possible, DMZ players complete numerous missions, obtain plenty of loot, and attempt to exfil in order to keep their earnings.

With the focus slowly turning towards Season Two, numerous bugs and glitches continue to impact all areas of the battle royale in addition to DMZ. However, DMZ still offers a unique experience.

DMZ gauntlet tournament format

The sole information surrounding the DMZ gauntlet tournament is that it involves 16 trios competing in a variety of challenges in order to get their hands on the prize money.

Rather than focusing on scoring the most kills, it appears teams will need to complete various objectives.

The Call of Duty community was asked to recommend potential captains resulting in numerous streamers and professional players putting their names in the hat. Warzone superstar Tommey believes DMZ streamers should act as captains as "they deserve to represent in a great tournament."

DMZ gauntlet tournament prize pool

As the title suggests, the DMZ gauntlet tournament features a $30,000 prize pool but Activision hasn't announced how it plans on splitting it amongst the 16 participating teams. Will one squad walk away with the entire pot or will a points system determine the prizing? We'll have to wait and see what's in store.
