The Minnesota Rokkr banked their fourth win without a loss Saturday in Week 2 of qualifying for the Call of Duty League Stage 3 Major.

The Rokkr took apart the Florida Mutineers 3-1 to move to 4-0 in qualifying. Minnesota is one of three unbeaten teams, but owns two more wins than each of the others (OpTic Texas, Atlanta FaZe).

The FaZe upped their record to 2-0 with a 3-0 sweep over the Boston Breach, who fell to 1-2. In other matches, Seattle and New York each posted wins by sweep — with the Surge besting the Los Angeles Thieves 3-0 and the Subliners taking care of the winless Paris Legion by the same score.

The results of each team’s five qualifying matches will determine the seeding for the Major 3 event, which begins June 2.

Minnesota lost its opening map to Florida 250-114 on Gavutu Hardpoint. But the Rokkr turned around the match with three straight wins, taking Tuscan Search and Destroy (6-4), Tuscan Control (3-2) and Bocage Hardpoint (250-101).

Atlanta made quick work of Boston. The FaZe opened with a 250-195 triumph on Bocage Hardpoint, then won 6-2 on Desert Siege Search and Destroy before claiming final victory with a 3-2 decision on Berlin Control.

Seattle started with a 250-205 victory on Tuscan Hardpoint, then won 6-2 on Desert Siege Search and Destroy and finished by cruising to a 3-0 win on Berlin Control.

New York faced little resistance against Paris, who fell to 0-3. The Subliners won all three maps with ease, conquering Bocage Hardpoint (250-146), Berlin Seatrch and Destroy (6-1) and Gavutu Control (3-0).

Week 2 action finishes Sunday with three matches:
–Paris Legion vs. Los Angeles Guerrillas
–OpTic Texas vs. Atlanta FaZe
–New York Subliners vs. Toronto Ultra
