NICKMERCS explains why he doesn’t want Warzone to leave Verdansk

The recent leak of a Ural Mountains Warzone map led NICKMERCS to give his thoughts on if he would like to see a new map come to the battle royale.

Fan-favorite content creator NICKMERCS recently commented on whether or not he would like to see a completely new map come to Call of Duty: Warzone or if Verdansk should continue to be updated likes it has so far.

The map of Warzone had gone through plenty of changes following its initial version when the Call of Duty battle royale was first released in 2020. One of the most notable changes that occurred was the transformation of Verdansk into Verdansk ’84 to kick off Season 3 of the Black Ops Cold War cycle.

This time-traveling transformation saw the additions of various new points of interest like Summit and Nakatomi Plaza, which have been looked upon fondly by players.

However, there are community members who would like to see a completely new map come to the world of Warzone in the same way that Apex Legends and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds have multiple maps for players to battle on.

The discussion of a completely new Warzone map became the main topic of discussion in the community again thanks to a recent leak showing off gameplay of an unreleased Ural Mountains Warzone map that never came to be.

This leaked Ural Mountains map resulted in popular content creator NICKMERCS giving his thoughts on whether or not Warzone needs a completely new map.

In his video, NICKMERCS explains that he has been a fan of the reoccurring updates to Verdansk, especially Nakatomi Plaza from the Die Hard film franchise.

He says that he would not mind not having a completely new map for Warzone if the developers made major changes like Nakatomi Plaza to Verdansk regularly.

However, he states that if the community has to wait weeks and months for only additions like a single building, he is not onboard with only updates to Verdansk if they are of that nature.

It remains to be seen if Warzone will ever get a completely new map or if Verdansk will be the basis of the Call of Duty battle royale forever and will transform based upon the main entry in the franchise at the time, such as Verdansk ’84 and Black Ops Cold War.

Warzone devs announce MG 82 nerf is officially coming

The MG 82 LMG has already proven it is overpowered, as the Warzone developers have announced that a nerf is coming for the Season 4 weapon.

Warzone MG 82 Nerf

Season 4 brought the MG 82 LMG to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it has proven to be a dominating force which has prompted Raven Software to announce that a nerf is indeed coming to the LMG.

Each new season of Warzone has brought new weapons for players to use in their battles, and Season 4 was no different with the addition of the MG 82 LMG, C58 Assault Rifle, and Nail Gun.

However, the MG 82 LMG quickly proved that it is taking over the meta, as the fast-firing and hard-hitting machine gun showed itself as easily one of the best guns that have ever been in the Call of Duty battle royale, with players having already called for it be nerfed.

After one whole day of this new LMG destroying players on Verdansk ’84 and Rebirth Island, Raven Software answered these calls and announced that a Warzone MG 82 nerf is indeed coming in the future.

The development studio took to its official Twitter account to reveal to the community that the new Season 4 LMG was a tad too powerful and that they would be taking a look and making adjustments to it. You can find Raven’s official announcement below:

“The MG 82 (BOCW) made one too many trips to the Pack-a-Punch machine before deploying to Verdansk. Element 115 is off limits in #Warzone, so we will be making an adjustment to this Weapon soon.”

Some players were sad to see the weapon already have a nerf planned for it after only one full day of it being in the game.

Others were happy to see that Raven Software was already working on a Warzone MG 82 nerf to make the LMG fairer than what it currently is in the first-person shooter.

The developer did not give an exact date for when players can expect to see the Warzone MG 82 nerf occur, so it remains to be seen how long the community will have to experience the new LMG in its current form.
