The Call of Duty League has revealed the details of its competitive rule set for the 2021 season, outlining the playable maps, game settings and class loadouts. The full list is quite extensive, but we've condensed the most notable picks here. The rest you can find on the Call of Duty League website, in further detail.

Anyway, for Hardpoint; Cartel, Checkmate, Crossroads, Garrison and Moscow will be playable. On Search and Destroy; Checkmate, Crossroads, Garrison, Miami, Moscow will be available. And for Control; Checkmate, Garrison and Moscow will be in rotation.

As for game settings, these are pretty much what you'd expect. Hardpoint, Search and Destroy and Control all use standard core rule sets, but team damage/killing is enabled, which might seem a little unusual if you are not used to the competitive format.

Last of all is the class guidelines, which for this season will mean no LMGs or secondary shotguns, launchers or specials. On top of that are a whole bunch of restricted items, but the most notable are no C4 lethals, Field Mic Field Upgrade, or Counter Spy Plane Scorestreaks.

To read through the full list and to see some of the rule sets explained in much deeper detail, head over here. To see what we thought about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the title this season will be played on, check out our review here.
