NICKMERCS compares Apex Legends and Warzone

Top streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has recently made the switch from Warzone to Apex Legends, and has now directly compared the two, explaining why Apex’s Ranked mode has him “addicted.”

Frustrated and bored with Warzone, some of Call of Duty’s biggest streamers such as CouRage and NICKMERCS have made the switch to Apex Legends. While Nick has experimented with Apex before, Season 10, and specifically the Ranked mode, has him hooked.

Looking back on CoD’s battle royale, NICKMERCS has explained why Apex has him “addicted” in a way that Warzone hasn’t for a long time.

NICKMERCS explained that while Apex is “fresh,” it doesn’t have anything “new or crazy.” Yet, he’s still loving it much more than Warzone and discussed why.

“The biggest comparison you can make is that when you’re playing Warzone, you’re going for high kills,” Nick reasoned. “But there’s no Ranked matches, no Arena, there’s nothing to grind for, nothing to play for.”

“I mean, you can play the wagers and the tournaments, but it’s just infested with cheaters and losers, and hackers ruin that either way.” NICKMERCS quit competitive Warzone all the way back in January because of these issues.

“So I want to touch base and kind of highlight Apex and their Ranked mode,” he continued. “Because, bro, the Ranked mode is top-tier, I’ve been having so much fun playing that. I feel like it’s a really good assessment of where you’re at in the game.”

He explained that while he could join some top Apex players who would carry him to the high Ranks, he’s just been playing solo and with his friends, Cloakzy, 72HRS, and TimTheTatman. Loving the grind, he’s said that Apex has him “more locked than he’s been in years.”

“I have something to grind for, I’m passionate about being competitive…you guys know me, I’m so competitive,” Nick concluded. “So this is a big W, I think it’s one of the biggest differences between the two games.”

NICKMERCS said to his fans that “if you guys need something to play for, to grind for…you should try out Apex Ranked, it’s great.”

Season 10 has been one of Apex’s biggest yet, so you can check out the best weapons and how to master the new Seer Legend in Emergence.

How to get Apex Legends modded weapons in Season 10

The Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event in Season 10 introduced Big Maude on World’s Edge, a new location that holds modded weapons.

Published

For those that don’t know, the most recent Evolution Collection Event for Apex Legends Season 10 introduced Rampart’s Big Maude workshop on World’s Edge, which contains some of her modded weapons.

The Apex Legends community was gifted a lot of content in the Evolution Collection Event. Not only were players given 24 new cosmetics along with Rampart’s Heirloom, but they also got a new location on World’s Edge.

The new POI is Rampart‘s Town Takeover, Big Maude, a mobile workshop land crawler that Rampart uses to mod weapons and engineer various creations like Valkyrie’s jets.

In this location, players can actually find and obtain modded weapons to take on enemies in a colorful style, and here’s how to do so.

Rampart’s Town Takeover: Big Maude

Unfortunately, the Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event got off to a shaky start, with players experiencing hours of server issues until Respawn finally fixed the issue.

Once players were able to get over the server issues, they could drop into World’s Edge and experience the brand new Rampart Town Takeover, Big Maude.

Where is Big Maude and what’s inside?

Big Maude is just outside of Lava City and doesn’t just contain your average loot. It’s also home to Rampart’s Apex Legends modded weapons that are locked inside of the Landcrawler.

Players can find these Apex Legends modded weapons on the bottom floor of Big Maude behind some glass cabinets. The weapons available can vary from a Rampage and R-301 to a Longbow.

These weapons are not only modded because they are a Gold rarity, meaning they come completely kitted with the best attachments but also because they shoot paintball bullets, leaving colorful splashes of paint everywhere you shoot.

As these Apex Legends modded weapons are locked behind glass windows, players will need to obtain 100 crafting materials from the material extractors and open loot bins. The loot bins will give players 5 crafting materials while the extractors will give players 25, meaning players will need to find four of them to have enough for a modded weapon.

Usually, there are extractors nearby, either at Big Maude or Lava City, so keep this in mind when landing around the area.

Luckily, all players can use these extractors, so you won’t have to worry about others stealing your crafting materials. However, the Apex Legends modded weapons can be taken by others, so make sure you loot up quickly!

Apex Legends dataminers have uncovered some interesting code surrounding a new Legend that could arrive in Season 11.

The recent Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event update introduced some pretty exciting new content, from the new Big Maude location on World’s Edge to various buffs and nerfs detailed in the patch notes.

Like any new update, dataminers have a field day as new code enters the game, which they can source and present to the community.

The latest leaks revealed a 3D model for Wattson’s Heirloom and also potentially Season 11‘s Legend.

Although it feels like we have only just received a new Legend with Season 10, Seer, dataminers have already uncovered some information about a future Legend.

The dataminer behind the leaks is GarretLeaks, who has been leaking trustworthy information regarding unreleased content for some time now. Garret was the dataminer behind the Rampart Heirloom, which turned out to be true.

Garret’s latest YouTube video exposes the line of code referencing a Legend that hasn’t been found in the Apex Legends’ code before. Although there is only one line of code, that’s all Garret needs to gain and speculate details about the Legend.

In the video, Garret states that the potential name or codename for this new Legend is “Maali,” and their abilities may also have something to do with providing a “damage boost.”

Garret further states that this would go with what is know about the next Apex Legends map, which is suspected to be a tropical theme, as “Maali” has a tropical ring to it, perhaps due to its similarities with Maui, an Island in Hawaii.

The dataminer speculates that Maali could actually come from this Tropic Island location. It has been a common theme for new maps to drop along with Legends who originate from that area, like Horizon in Season 7 with Olympus.

The code also mentions “damage boost,” which could have something to do with her kit. Perhaps one of her abilities will boost her damage in certain situations.

We’ll have to wait for more information to drop about Maali in the future to know more about their kit. For now, check out our article on the upcoming Halloween event for the battle royale game.
