Call of Duty League will be hosting broadcasts of tournaments on YouTube, and now watching those broadcasts will earn you some rewards.
Today, The Call of Duty League announced a host of mid-season update news, and among it all was an announcement for drops. To earn these drops, which will be for in-game items in Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Warzone, you have to watch Call of Duty League broadcasts on YouTube.
The drops will offer a variety of different rewards, including emblems and sprays. And all of the items will be themed after the Call of Duty League.
Call of Duty League YouTube drops are "coming soon"
Drops for watching broadcasts is a cool idea and one that's been implemented many times on Twitch. Most recently with Valorant closed beta access. So it shouldn't be too surprising that YouTube will be doing the same thing here with Call of Duty.
The drops are "coming soon" so they're not quite here yet. And if you're interested in obtaining some of the cool rewards keep your eye on the Call of Duty League social channels.
The fact that drops are even being introduced is a nice surprise for viewers. The excitement from watching a broadcast is somewhat of a reward in its own right. However, the drops give viewers something tangible to acquire.
For big fans of the Call of Duty franchise this will no doubt entice more people to watch the tournament matches.
There's more details coming on the viewership rewards program
The drops are part of something called the Viewership Rewards Program. Which is a way to give something back to the viewers for tuning in to watch their favorite teams fight for supremacy.
Activision likely plans to have more than just these Call of Duty League-themed drops added into the program. At the moment though it's only shared information on what the drops will include.
It did also say though that it will have more to share on the Viewership Rewards Program in the future. To earn progress towards viewership rewards, you'll need to be signed into your Activision account.
So make sure to log into it before you start actually watching broadcasts. If you don't have one yet, simply create one. The last thing you want is to go through a 10-hour binge of watching Call of Duty League matches. Only to miss out on some cool in-game stuff.
