DFS 101: How to Play Call of Duty on DraftKings

This article is part of our DraftKings Call of Duty series.

DraftKings has added to an increasingly long list of esports-related games, this time introducing Call of Duty (CoD) to the fold. The Call of Duty World League – the fourth-ever franchised esport – provides a plethora of scheduled contests with top-level competition, something that can't be said for a handful of other esports-related DFS games.

Scoring

While Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's (CS:GO) scoring is largely focused on the kills/deaths of a given player, DraftKings doesn't emphasis those obvious peripherals within their CoD competitions. It's refreshing, particularly given the different strategic elements of the modes played throughout a given five-game series.

A Call of Duty World League match is a best-of-five, with Rounds 1 and 4 played under the game mode Hardpoint, while Rounds 2 and 5 are Search and Destroy. Round 3 is the only game mode which is played just once a series, called Domination.
