How to get Modern Warfare 2 beta code by watching CDL Champs

After linking your Call of Duty and YouTube accounts, watching live CDL matches on Championship Sunday (August 7) will put your hat in the ring to get one of 50,000 Modern Warfare 2 beta codes.

These are random drops, so be sure to check your notifications on the CDL website or the CoD Companion app to see if you’ve been granted one.

That’s not the only viewership reward available on Championship Sunday, as players can also earn the Champs Ring as a Weapon Charm, an Automaton] Blueprint, and the Down to the Wire Operator — just for watching two hours of gameplay.

Plus, if you’re attending the Championship Sunday at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, you’ll be guaranteed a beta code.
