Nickmercs explains why a Kilo 141 nerf is coming to Warzone

Popular streamer, Nickmercs, speaks about his thoughts on a possible Kilo 141 nerf coming to Warzone ahead of the Cold War Season 1 release.

The Kilo 141 is a favorite among the community, but Nickmercs thinks the Kilo storm is coming to an end.

Since the release of Warzone in March, several metas have risen after each major update. Weapons like the M4, Grau, Bruen, and even the Akimbo Snakeshot .44 Magnum have seen their rise to popularity and sharply fell after nerfs.

The longest meta by far (before the Kilo) was the Grau meta, which got a hefty nerf this past June. Afterward, the Grau usage fell off and was replaced by the Bruen, which saw a much larger nerf than its predecessor.

Fast-forwarding to the present, the Kilo 141 has been the dominant meta weapon in Warzone for almost five months. The weapon is consistent, accurate, and amazing at range. You can get the best loadout here.

Nickmercs speaks on the Kilo nerf

Following the past trends of metas, Nickmercs believes the Kilo will also be nerfed just like all the other past weapons when Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone drop on December 16, 2020.

“Every single time in the history of Warzone when all these guns/updates come in, there’s new guns that take the throne,” Nickmercs said in a video. “My only hope is that when they nerf the Kilo, they don’t nerf it into the ground.”

The Kilo may get a nerf, but it’s also possible that the Cold War weapons outshine the Modern Warfare ones when they enter the game. You can watch Nickmercs speak more on the Kilo in his video below.

In terms of the Kilo nerf, Nickmercs has confidence that Infinity Ward will do well with the nerf as they did for the Bruen and Grau. The Bruen fell out of the meta quickly, but even after the nerf, many players still choose to run the Grau.

As for Black Ops Cold War’s Warzone arsenal, he thinks that the M16 may be the successor to the Kilo as the king of Warzone.

We’ll be able to tell if he’s right in just a few short days.

Warzone players slam “rip off” Ultra Operator skin

Warzone players have called out the new Magma Ultra Operator skin for being a “rip off” and advise other players not to buy it.

Warzone players slam magma operator skin

Warzone players have been unimpressed with the new ‘Magma’ Ultra-rarity Operator skin for Knight, with it being called a “rip off” as its fiery effect in-game doesn’t match its Cold War appearance or what’s advertised in the store.

Warzone and Cold War Season 4 added the first-ever Ultra Operator skin with Iridescent for Jackal. This brightly-colored skin changes color throughout matches, making it a unique sight on the battlefield.

Activision has now released another Ultra Operator skin with ‘Magma’ for Knight, in which the outfit glows like fiery lava. But Warzone players have been more than unimpressed with its minimal fiery effects in the battle royale mode.

Warzone and Cold War Magma Fury bundle

As Cold War and Warzone are on different engines, the Operators often look slightly different between the two games. This has been severely highlighted with the Magma Fury Bundle, where the skin’s effect is clear in Cold War, but barely recognizable in Warzone.

Many players assumed that the Magma skin would be reactive, where it changes color and design with each kill. This doesn’t appear to be the case, as the molten lava effect is there as soon as you spawn in.

Warzone players have been criticizing the skin as the lava effect is almost non-existent in the bright, hazy colors of Verdansk ’84. Reddit user kaif_chan123 made players aware of the problem by showing off the skin in Warzone.

In the comparison pictures, we can see the skin’s Magma effect is bright and obvious when in the Store but muddied and hard to see in-game. “They did rip me off,” they stated, explaining that they wouldn’t recommend that anyone buys it.

The image from kaif_chan123 is low-resolution, but a video from KRNG Hero (topic begins at 13:48) better shows how it looks in Warzone. After praising how cool the skin is in Cold War, Hero said that you can only see the fire effect in Warzone if you “look very carefully.”

This is one of Activision’s most expensive bundles in the store, so while plenty of Redditors criticized the OP for buying a skin, it’s still something players should be aware of before purchasing the bundle.

Also, Warzone players have called for a Store boycott over the lawsuit against Activision-Blizzard for its “frat boy” culture and sexual harassment incidents.
