The first Warzone competition of 2022 is about to kick off. Here's how to watch the Code Red Warzone Duos tournament.

With a $25,000 prize pool up for grabs, 2022 is starting off strong with the Code Red Warzone Duos tournament hosted by BoomTV. Fans can expect the show to feature both pros and streamers battling it out to prove their skills and walk away with the top prize.

There are a number of conditions for competitors to know and adhere to. For starters, the tournament will be making use of the Vanguard Royale playlist which means that Vanguard-only weapons will be in play. Planes have been banned, however, so Duos won't be allowed to fly themselves to victory.

Any glitches and exploits found to be used will also be frowned upon. Recently a trick was found that enabled players to keep their full loadout after death. Naturally, any player using this exploit will be disqualified.
