Popular Warzone content creator NICKMERCS is officially taking a break from Warzone, with his eyes set on another battle royale game.

With new details on the future Call of Duty coming out, Warzone has been experiencing a slightly dry spell as of recent.

Although players can now unlock and enjoy the Mace and C-X9, Warzone is definitely in need of some updates, and one of its content creators agrees.

NICKMERCS done with Warzone

In the YouTuber’s latest video, NICKMERCS expresses his current feelings towards Warzone, which may come as a surprise to many of his followers.

Ultimately, NICKMERCS stated that he was bored of Warzone, and no longer has the desire to play it. As he is no longer having fun playing it, he believes the best thing for him to do is take a break from the game, especially with all the hackers.

NICKMERCS then went on to say how much fun he’d been having playing Apex Legends, especially with the game having a new season out today.

Those fans of his who love watching him play Warzone may have to wait a little while until he is back on the game, but he does say that it isn’t the end of Warzone.

NICKMERCS will most likely head back onto the game when there is an exciting update, possibly when the new Call of Duty game, Vanguard, comes out.

Ultimately, NICKMERCS is a human, and with the amount that he has played Warzone, it was only a matter of time until he was going to get bored of the game and no longer having fun with it, especially with the hacker problem that has grown incredibly frustrating for the community.

To make the best content he needs to play something he’s having fun on, and at the moment that is Apex Legends.

Activision apologize for using artist’s design in now canceled Vanguard & Warzone skin

Activision have scrapped an unreleased Warzone and Vanguard skin after using an artist’s work without permission.

Published

on

Vanguard and Warzone Season 4 Reloaded skins

Activision admitted to the major misstep of using an artist’s work without permission. The original art was to feature in an upcoming Vanguard and Warzone skin that has since been axed.

Major content drops like new seasons or midseason updates deliver weapons, maps, and changes to Call of Duty games, but they also tend to bring brand-new skins to enjoy. Vanguard and Warzone have seen some noteworthy skins that certainly got players talking.

After all, who could forget the Armored Titan, or Godzilla and King Kong skins? At the start of Season 4 Reloaded, players also received a new Terminator crossover. However, teasers for Season 4 Reloaded also hinted at a mysterious wolf-like skin.

After the wolf skin was teased in an official Call of Duty blog post, it was later inexplicably removed and replaced from the very same post. It turns out, Activision used content that did not belong to them in order to create the aforementioned skin.

When the wolf skin was first teased, it certainly generated a ton of buzz, or rather raised a ton of eyebrows. The anthropomorphic Operator definitely sticks out in a WWII-era Call of Duty game. Nonetheless, fans were excited at the prospect of running around as a wolf in Warzone.

Unfortunately, that idea won’t come to fruition as Activision have confirmed that they completely removed the skin from their planned content drop for Season 4 Reloaded.

It seems Activision overstepping bounds is the reason behind the skin’s cancelation.

An artist claimed that the wolf skin, also known as Samoyed skin, was stolen without their permission. In a strange turn of events, Activision has issued an apology, seemingly confirming the artist’s claims.

In a statement, Activision admitted that they “regrettably erred in our process and have removed this imagery from the game,” apologizing for the misstep.

While fans may be disappointed to lose their chance at slaying in a furry wolf skin, most would agree that if the artist’s claims are legitimate, the greater injustice was corrected as nobody should have their work stolen without credit.

Best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Season 4 Reloaded

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and here’s the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Published

Warzone Armaguerra 43

The Armaguerra 43 is an extremely effective SMG, and with the right attachments, Perks, and Equipment you can make the best loadout for it in Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

The Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded update brought some major changes to the game’s meta, and players are trying out different weapons following the buffs and nerfs to existing weapons.

SMGs are ideal weapons for close-range combat in Warzone, and the Armaguerra 43 continues to be a great choice even after the small nerf that it received in the Season 4 Reloaded update.

Here’s the best Armaguerra 43 loadout for Warzone Pacific Season 4 Reloaded.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 loadout attachments

Armaguerra 43 in Warzone
  • Muzzle: Recoil Booster
  • Barrel: Botti 315mm CII
  • Optic: Slate Reflector
  • Stock: Imerito SA Folding
  • Underbarrel: Mark VI Skeletal
  • Magazine: 9mm 60 Round Mags
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip
  • Perk 1: Vital
  • Perk 2: Quick

We’ll start off this Warzone loadout by equipping the Recoil Booster muzzle and Botti 315mm CII barrel to boost the weapon’s bullet velocity and recoil control.

The Polymer Grip will further improve the SMG’s accuracy and you can use the Slate Reflector for its unobtrusive sight. The Imerito SA Folding stock and Mark VI Skeletal underbarrel will improve the weapon’s ADS movement speed.

We picked the 9mm 60 Round Mags along with the Lengenthed ammo to ensure you have plenty of rounds to eliminate multiple enemies. The Vital perk will increase the size of the critical-hit area on targets, and Quick will allow you to sprint faster.

Best Warzone Armaguerra 43 Perks & Equipment

E.O.D Perk in Warzone Pacific
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal Equipment: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical Equipment: Stim

Enemies will often toss grenades and thermite your way during close-quarters combat, so we recommend equipping the E.O.D Perk to make you more resistant to explosive damage.

You’ll want to pick Overkill so that you can pair this SMG with an option like the Cooper Carbine for long-range combat, and Amped to quickly switch between the two weapons.

This SMG forces you up close and personal with opponents, so a well-placed Throwing Knife is the perfect way to quickly remove an enemy from the equation, and a Stim will grant you a quick health boost.

How to unlock Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

Armaguerra 43 unlock challenge in Warzone

While normally the Armaguerra is unlocked via an in-game challenge that requires you to score 10 hip-fire kills in 15 separate matches, the weapon is available completely free in Season 4 Reloaded.

So you don’t have to worry about completing any challenge throughout the rest of the season, as the weapon will automatically be added to your inventory after logging into Warzone.

Most recent Armaguerra 43 buffs and nerfs in Warzone

The Season 4 Reloaded update brought balancing updates for numerous Warzone Pacific weapons, and the Armaguerra 43 received a slight nerf to one of its barrel attachments.

Here are the Armaguerra changes:

Armaguerra 43 (VG)

  • Botti 570mm Precisione 
    • Headshot Locational Damage Scalar decreased to 1.14, down from 1.2

Best alternatives to the Armaguerra 43 in Warzone

Warzone is brimming with great SMGs, if you’re looking for an alternative to the Armaguerra 43 then the Marco 5 is another viable pick for close-range combat encounters because of its mobility and fast TTK.

The H4 Blixen continues to be a powerful weapon choice even after the nerfs it received in Season 4 Reloaded, so be sure to give that a try as well.
