NICKMERCS reveals one change to make Warzone MAC-10 class even stronger

Streamer NICKMERCS has discovered one simple change to Warzone’s MAC-10 that will make the already great SMG even better.

Published

Streamer NICKMERCS is known for his Warzone loadout videos uploaded to YouTube, and he’s figured out how to make the already strong MAC-10 even better.

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff found great success with Warzone when it launched in March 2020. He turned out high kills game after game, won tournaments, and perhaps became infamous for popularizing the Bruen MK9 meta which took over Verdansk in Modern Warfare Seasons 4 and 5.

The MAC-10 dominated close-range combat for the first few weeks of Warzone Season 1, with an insanely fast time-to-kill and minimal recoil. It then turned out that the Gallantry Blueprint unlocked through the premium Battle Pass was ‘pay-to-win,’ with it dealing over 30% more damage than its base version.

The MAC-10 has received a slight nerf, and the Gallantry Blueprint now functions as intended, but this BOCW SMG remains the perfect pocket weapon. NICKMERCS has found an attachment you should run to make the MAC-10 even better.

NICKMERCS’ new MAC-10 loadout

After NICKMERCS dominated with the MAC-10, his chat asked him what attachments he was using, so he decided to make a video. While this SMG is already fast, Nick wanted it faster, so he swapped out the popular 53 Round Drum for the Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag.

This magazine allows you to reload even quicker, with no negatives compared to its drum variant. It does increase the overall ADS time of the MAC-10, but the rest of Nick’s attachments compensate for that.

Here’s Nick’s full MAC-10 loadout.

Nickmercs mac-10 loadout
  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 9
  • Barrel: 5.3″ Extended
  • Stock: Wire Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 53 Rnd Fast Mag

NICKMERCS’ MAC-10 is decked out for speed, with the Wire Stock and Patrol Grip prioritizes moving fast and being the first to have your gun up in a fight.

For extra recoil control, Nick also opted for the Muzzle Break 9 instead of the Agency Suppressor, which a lot of players favor. You’ll show on the minimap when firing, but with the TTK on this SMG, that shouldn’t be a problem.

Warzone streamers and pros are an excellent source for new weapon loadouts, so keep an eye on Charlie Intel where we’ll be covering the best builds.

Warzone: New Roze skin glitch makes player heads invisible

A new glitch with the Roze skin in CoD: Warzone is making the head of her player model completely invisible to other players.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

A new glitch with the Roze skin in Warzone is making the head of the player model completely invisible.

It appears that a new bug has appeared in Warzone for the highly debated “Near Dark” Roze skin. Up to now, players have complained that the skin is essentially “pay to win”, as it is very hard to spot in dark areas of the map.

Now, there is a bug where the already hard-to-spot player model can have her head appear completely invisible, per a tweet from Twitter user @conne90.

In the video, whenever the Roze skin takes out her Heartbeat sensor, her head completely disappears, making her not only a hard target to spot but also nearly impossible to headshot.

We’re unsure if players will actually still be able to land a headshot while her head is not visible, but we can safely assume this is a game-breaking glitch, as it can be used to gather intel from head glitches while remaining unseen.

For example, if a player peeks over a building, staircase or ledge, they can simply pull out their heartbeat sensor and have their head completely invisible to enemy players. We’re unsure if this bug is platform specific, so be sure to let us know @charlieINTEL on Twitter if you can replicate this bug.

For the time being, we just recommend players stay vigilant, as there isn’t really much that can be done to combat this exploit. Fortunately, players cannot shoot while Roze’s head is invisible, so this isn’t a bug that will ruin normal Warzone games.

In most lobbies, we don’t expect this bug to destroy competitive integrity, but perhaps some higher skilled players will choose to intentionally or unintentionally abuse this to gain information.

We’ll update if we hear any more about this bug, or if it becomes widespread. Be on the lookout.

Teasers suggest Zombies to takeover Warzone’s Verdansk

Zombies may be taking over the rest of Warzone’s Verdansk map over the next few weeks, as teased via a video from Call of Duty.

Black Ops Cold War's Warzone - Shipwreck

Zombies may be taking over Warzone’s Verdansk map in the coming weeks, as teased in a video on Call of Duty’s Twitter.

It appears that the Zombie infestation at Verdansk’s new Shipwreck location could be spreading across the map, which would match earlier theories that the Zombie horde would periodically spread as Season 2 continues.

Before the launch of Season 2, we saw a teaser of the Zombies in Verdansk’s Hospital location, which showcased a model of the Trials machine from Black Ops Cold War Zombies.

Forwarding to Season 2, the ship Vodyanoy finally reached the shores of Verdansk, then becoming a Shipwreck location for players to land at. In this POI, players could find a fully functional Zombies Trial machine, which would prompt Zombies to spawn in the Shipwreck area as part of a small event that players could redeem for a reward with a Yellow Keycard.

Now over a week after the launch of Season 2, Call of Duty posted a video to their Twitter account, signifying that the Zombie horde is headed deeper into Verdansk.

In the video, we see footage from Verdansk’s own BCH-4 news station, reporting that the Zombies are now venturing out of the Shipwreck, perhaps into the Prison or Port area. A reporter, Mike Field is seen in the footage in a helicopter overlooking the Shipwreck, before being shot down. You can watch the full video below.

Hopefully in the coming days we see where the undead are headed. Perhaps they’ll hop between different areas of the map as time goes on, or maybe they’ll be multiple areas infested with the Zombies at once.

If rumors hold up, each new area should have a Zombies Trial computer, with a short quest to do for rewards. Players may be able to use the hordes as a distraction when in gunfights with other teams, so we’re sure to be in for some interesting strategies.

Stay tuned for more information, we’ll report as soon as more is available.

Call of Duty: Warzone best weapons

Here are the current best weapons and loadouts you should be using right now in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2; list is updated regularly.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s meta changes quite often, with every new season bringing new weapons and balance updates to existing ones. With the release of the Black Ops Cold War x Warzone integration, many weapons have risen to the top.

To be the best, you should always be leveling up and using the top weapons in the game. The most powerful, consistent, and accurate ones are always front and center in the arsenal of the best players in the game.

Here’s the most meta weapons, as of Black Ops Cold War’s Warzone Season 2.

#1 – FFAR

FFAR best Warzone loadout

The FFAR is currently the fastest killing automatic weapon in Warzone. It has a fast fire rate, high damage output, and a ton of recoil.

Once you master the art of movement and recoil control, you’ll be able to destroy any enemy in mere seconds. If you’re skilled enough, you can outplay entire squads of enemies all by yourself. Here’s the best loadout:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Round Fast Mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

#2 – MAC-10

MAC-10 Best Warzone Loadout

The MAC-10 is an ultra-powerful close-range machine, that even has some effectiveness at medium range. Like the FFAR, it has a fast fire rate with decent recoil. Master this SMG to be the most effective close-range fighter.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Round Drum
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock

#3 – KAR-98K

KAR98-K Best Warzone Loadout

The KAR-98K is the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone, by far. It has near-instant aim-down-sight speeds, great range, and a highly useful Variable Zoom Scope. Currently, there is a bug regarding the Presence of Mind perk that allows players to hold their breath for insane amounts of time.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Variable Zoom Scope
  • Perk: Presence of Mind

#4 – CR-56 AMAX

CR- 56 AMAX Best Warzone Loadout

Looking for a dominant medium-range Assault Rifle? Look no further than the CR-56 AMAX. Aim high for quick kills on foes. The VLK optic makes for easy targeting at long-range – just make sure you compensate for the high recoil. High risk, high reward.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic

#5 – Kilo 141

Kilo 141- Best Warzone Loadout

The Kilo 141 is the ol’ reliable of Warzone. It’s consistent at range, easy to use, and has low recoil. If you know someone who’s new to Warzone, or you’re not a fan of recoil yourself, this is your optimal weapon.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic (Can replace with Corp Combat Holo)
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

#6 – AUG (Black Ops Cold War)

AUG - Black Ops Cold War Loadout

The AUG is a burst-fire beast capable of downing enemies in just 2 well-placed bursts. Be sure to aim for the head at range. Turning enemies into swiss cheese has never been easier. As long as you have the accuracy and trigger-discipline, this is your weapon.

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 18.2″ Strike Team
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Drum
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip

#7 – Bruen

The Bruen is a heavy-hitting LMG, perfect for long range and medium range combat. Its 60 round magazine ensures you won’t run out of ammo fast, and you’ll always stay on target with how stable this weapon is under heavy fire.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mag
  • Laser – Tac Laser
  • Optic – Corp Combat Holo Sight

Best Perks for COD: Warzone

In order to optimize your perks, we’re going to recommend the two loadout strategy for any game. On the first loadout, your perk 2 should be overkill to get you your two preferred weapons.

On the second loadout, pick up a loadout with Ghost or Restock for lethals and tacticals, depending on your preferences. Here’s the perk rundown:

  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost/Restock
  • Perk 3: Amped

This has been our take for the best weapons currently available in Warzone’s meta. You can use all these weapons for high-kill games or slow-paced wins.

Good luck out in the Warzone! Stay tuned to @charlieINTEL for any updates regarding CoD: Warzone or Black Ops Cold War.
