Modern Warfare players have created their own undercover Call of Duty Fight Club to flex their muscles.
The first rule of Call of Duty Fight Club is you don't talk about Call of Duty Fight Club. Well, that's unless you're writing an article on it. If there wasn't already enough to do in Activision's fan-favourite shooter, a group of mayhem-loving players have created their own Fight Club to while away the hours.
For those who haven't read Chuck Palahniuk's 1996 novel or watched the all-star Hollywood movie with Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, the idea of Fight Club is that you beat the living snot out of each other as part of an underground movement. It might be hard to picture how this would work in a game like Call of Duty: Warzone, but believes us, someone has done it justice.
Posting on Reddit, u/Matikata showed off this impressive feat of organisation.and explained how players took part in this seven-round bloodbath. The virtual Fight Club took place underneath the new Khandor Hideout that was added back in March. The Hardcore Cyber Attack meant each player could knock their opponent out with a well-timed punch.
Matikata explained in the comments how they regularly "throw it out there and see who responds", suggesting this isn't the first time Fight Club has bled into the world of Warzone. Players apparently gathered around and threw out references to David Fincher's 1999 movie, showing that even some 21 years later, Fight Club is as relevant as ever. In a time when COVID-19 prevents actual Fight Clubs from happening (not that we condone them anyway), a virtual one in CoD is a good way to let out some of the pent-up rage.
Weirdly, this isn't the first time we've seen Fight Clubs in video games. Recently, Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans were shocked to find their own beetle Fight Club in-game and quickly snapped a picture of this natural phenomenon. Elsewhere, Fight Clubs have been knocking around forever in the likes of The Sims 4.
Of course, Matikata explained that Fight Club is just one of several unique modes that gets the Warzone community engaged. They said they also regularly take part in a shield vs knives match on Rust, so keep your eyes peeled for these underground events. The question is, will be able to hold our own Call of Duty Fight Club in Black Ops Cold War?
