Competitive Call of Duty rules adjusts over time. See the latest official Call of Duty League competitive settings here.


3.1 Restricted Items

Any Operators, Maps, Weapons, Attachments, Camos, Accessories, Stickers, Perks, and WildCards currently disabled during the Call of Duty League season play will be prohibited from use in our official games.


4. Stoppage of Play

Each team may call to have a game map reset once per match if a connection problem arises, so long as the first round in a game has not been completed, gunfire is not being exchanged, and first blood has not yet occurred. In the event that a game map is rehosted, the same map must be used. If problems persist with regards to a player disconnecting after the game has already been re-hosted, the team must play the remainder of the match with the remaining players.


5. Player Count

Both teams participating in a match must provide 4 players at the beginning of the first game, and 3 for each consecutive game. During a game, if a team should lose 2 players that have disconnected, that team will forfeit the remainder of the game to the opposing team. If a team is not able to field the required number of players for additional games in the series, then they will forfeit the remainder of the match. The same goes for the Gunfight Game Mode except the team must field a player should someone get disconnected.


6. Hosting

The Home Team Captain should create the Private Match. As the hosting Home Team changes over the course of a match, the new hosting Team Captain should leave the Private Match and create a new one.

  • Teams should play a Host Test Game, for roughly 30 seconds, before a new Host is going to be used, in order to determine if the Host is reasonable. Host Test Games should be played using a Map that the Teams are not scheduled to play against each other so that Players aren’t confused about whether the Match has officially begun/resumed.
  • All Players must agree that the Host is reasonable (all Players with green bars) before the start of a Game. If a reasonable Host can’t be found, the hosting Team’s best Host must be used.
  • If the Host isn’t given to the Player who was designated to be the Game’s Host, the game must still be played.
  • If a Player’s connection to the Host becomes unreasonable during a game, the game must still be played. After each game, either Team may request that a new Host be tested if the previous Host was unreasonable.
  • If a Player loses their connection to the Host when the Game launches, the Game must be restarted.
  • If a Player loses their connection to the Host during a Game, the Round must continue. Players losing their connection to the Host may be invited back to the Private Match.
