The finest Call of Duty talent goes head-to-head on an almost weekly basis, as Warzone tournaments continue to gain traction and the CDL is in full swing.

But not everyone reaches the heights of the superstars, and for the streamers who excel at variety and party games, the opportunities to entertain on CoD come few and far between.

"FaZe Kaysan" is hoping to right that wrong by hosting a huge Modern Warfare 3 event that's filled with the biggest internet personalities that you can imagine.

FaZe Kaysan holds MW3 Streamer Showdown with an incredible line-up


Streaming on Twitch, via Kaysan or ZooMaa (hosted by Thomas "ZooMaa" Paparatto), the MW3 Showdown will pull together 16 colossal streamers and celebs and pitch them against each other in a $25,000 tournament on May 8.

The rosters are made up of streamers who have very little CoD experience between them, but skill is made up for in personality.

Some staple figures include Felix "xQc" Lengyel, Kylie "Sketch" Cox, Tyler "TrainwrecksTV" Niknam, Bronny James (son of Lebron James), Duke Dennis, and Bryan "RiceGum" Quang Le. These will be accompanied by a wealth of FaZe Clan members and other content creators.

Kaysan has also pulled in a string of Call of Duty esports moguls as the coaches to get these teams up to scratch. Team xQc is being supported by the movement king himself in Anthony "Shotzzy" Cuevas-Castro, while Kaysan's team will be bulked up by the entire Atlanta FaZe roster in the coaching room.

Team Sketch will have The Flank hosts Ben Nissim and Sam "Octane" Larew, and Temperrr's squad will be blessed with the best two assault rifle players in the world with Brandon "Dashy" Otell and Thomas "Scrappy" Ernst on the management mic.
