Nickmercs reveals the best Sniper for Warzone Season 1

While the DMR may be dominating the Warzone Season 1 meta, FaZe Clan streamer NICKMERCS has a Kar98k class that will help you dominate.



While the DMR still reigns supreme in Warzone Season 1, those looking to wield a different sniper while searching for wins have a new option thanks to Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff’s Kar98k loadout.

Warzone is currently dominated by the DMR Marksman Rifle from Black Ops Cold War, which is so powerful and has such little recoil that it almost feels unfair to pick enemies off with it. The meta continues to be a controversial one, with many calling for the weapon to be given a significant nerf in the next update for the battle royale mode.

Should the devs finally decide to do so, it seems that the Kar98k will be the go-to weapon of choice for true long-range gunfights once again, with NICKMERCS testing it out again in his latest video.

The Kar98k was a popular choice in Season 5 and 6, and with no major nerfs to make it less powerful, the only reason it isn’t a feature in players’ loadouts right now is the power of the DMR, but even now this sniper rifle can compete if you have the right loadout.

The DMR from Black Ops Cold War.

“This thing has always been the big ‘dingaling’ in Warzone for as long as I can remember,” explained the FaZe Clan star. “The Kar98 has always been the fastest way to put someone down.”

“Even with all the new guns being added, [enemies] still don’t stand a chance. Sniping is so satisfying. It’s not always the best option, but if you want to have some fun, sniping in Warzone is a fantastic way to do that.”

In his gameplay, NICKMERCS showed that the Kar98k was still an incredibly dangerous weapon in the right hands, picking enemies out of the sky with ease, and finding double and even triple kills with the sniper. You can check him out in action below, and get a breakdown of NICKMERCS Kar98k class.

NICKMERCS’ Kar98k Loadout

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor: Stay hidden from radar and get bonus damage at range. A must for all weapons in Warzone.
  • Barrel – Singuard Custom 27.6″: Extra damage range with added bullet velocity. Makes long-range headshots easier to achieve at the cost of movement speed.
  • Laser – Tac Laser: Extra aim down sight speed, weapon stability, and steadiness, but leaves a laser visible to enemies when aiming down sight. You’ll also show a glint when sniping, so the lasers upsides heavily outweigh the downsides.
  • Optic- Sniper Scope: Turns the Kar98k from a regular bolt-action rifle to a long-range sniper that awards marksmen.
  • Rear Grip- Stippled Grip Tape: Extra aim down sight speed and sprint to fire speed makes this a medium/long-range weapon hybrid.

Tips For The Field

  • Hot feet only – Don’t be afraid to play aggressively. The exceptional aim down sight speed in combination with the Kar98k’s sprint out speed makes this a quick scoping machine. Aim for the head and watch enemies fall instantly at all ranges.
  • CRACK! – Can’t hit a headshot? Aim for the upper body. The Kar98k is an armor cracking machine. Pair it up with an SMG of choice for easy combo kills. Crack armor, then rush with an SMG when in medium-range engagements.
  • Accuracy and timing – Headshots are instant downs with the Kar98k. Memorize bullet drop at long ranges and be sure to time your shots when in the heat of battle. Missing a shot can result in catastrophe while chambering the next round.

Bizarre parachute glitch ruins Warzone players landing

A bizarre glitch has appeared in Call of Duty: Warzone for a player, which results in a hilarious animation while parachuting.



A bizarre, yet hilarious glitch has appeared in Call of Duty: Warzone and it is extremely disruptive when trying to parachute onto the map.

Call of Duty: Warzone has quite the history of game-breaking glitches, causing varying degrees of issues for players. These glitches include the very disruptive stim glitch, and the frustrating wall breach bugs.

Newest to the show is the introduction of a parachute glitch that leaves players in a state where they descend slowly to the ground, unable to do anything but watch. While annoying, the glitch is also hilarious, putting the character in a warped animation state that resembles the thriller dance.

You can watch footage of the bug below, posted by a Redditor. The bug itself seems to be based on the parachute getting forced in an odd direction, resulting in the character appearing tangled in the strings.

While this bug would be frustrating for any players stuck in it, it is worth noting this is the first we’ve seen of this particular issue. It also doesn’t help that the clip has minimal context, so it very well could be the result of a connection issue with the original poster.

Considering the game doesn’t appear to be lagging at all, it may be safe to assume this is a legitimate bug in Warzone. We think its highly unlikely you’ll run into this yourself, but if you do, don’t hesitate to tweet us some footage @CharlieIntel.

Best case scenario, the laughs end here and Raven Software patches this in the next update. We’ll be sure to report if more players begin to run into this bug.

Best Grau loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone

Here’s the best Grau weapon loadout that you can use on both Verdansk and Rebirth Island in Call of Duty: Warzone.



Here’s the best Grau loadout to use on your travels throughout Verdansk and Rebirth Island in CoD: Warzone.

The Grau Assault Rifle is one of the best weapons in Modern Warfare, as well as Warzone. It offers modest mobility and excellent control while firing the weapon, steadying more as it’s fired. The weapon also has relatively predictable recoil, which makes it great for taking down opponents at further range, even with the iron sight.

In the early seasons of Warzone, the Grau saw its best days, being the ultimate meta weapon. Since then, it has been nerfed but has always been viable, sleeping in the background.

Here’s the rundown of the best loadout:

Grau Warzone Loadout

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor: Additional range, the player doesn’t appear on radar while firing.
  • Barrel – Tempus 26.4″ Archangel: The longest barrel available for the Grau, adds damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.
  • Laser – Tac Laser: Exposes your position when aiming down sights, but adds aiming stability, steadiness while walking and aiming, with a faster aim down sight.
  • Underbarrel – Commando Foregrip: Added recoil stabilization for more accuracy while firing.
  • Ammunition – 60 Round Mags: Largest magazine available. More ammo, fewer problems.

Tips for the field

  • Hold fire! – The Grau gets more accurate as you are firing. After a few shots, it becomes super accurate, taking down enemies at range with ease.
  • Lead your shots – While laser-accurate, the Grau also has a modest bullet travel time. Be sure to lead shots against enemies in the air or enemies running across a field.
  • Keep the distance – Medium range is the optimal range for this weapon. If you’re an expert marksman, you can deal big damage at longer ranges too. Just be careful in close range combat. You’ll want to either switch to an SMG or get into a better position.

Best Bullfrog loadout in Call of Duty: Warzone

Want to shred opponents from close and medium-range? Here’s the best Bullfrog SMG loadout to use in Call of Duty: Warzone.



Here’s the best Bullfrog loadout to use in CoD:Warzone to maximize power and accuracy.

The Bullfrog is a lightweight and mobile SMG from Black Ops Cold War, capable of holding large magazines. Aside from these pros, the Bullfrog carries a secret stat that makes it all worth the while, that being its insane headshot multiplier.

Simply hitting an enemy in the head at close or medium-range will send them into the Gulag within seconds, before they even have a chance to react.

While weapons like the Mac-10 have great base damage, you’ll be able to out damage and out range a Mac-10 user as long as you aim for the head.

Here’s our recommended loadout.

Bullfrog SMG: Black Ops Cold War Warzone

Bullfrog Loadout for CoD: Warzone

  • Muzzle GRU Suppressor: More range, the player doesn’t appear on the radar when firing.
  • Barrel – Task Force: Additional damage range, velocity, and damage in general, at the cost of recoil control.
  • Laser – GRU 5mw Laser Sight: Added hip-fire accuracy for a more concentrated fire at close range.
  • Underbarrel – Spetsnaz Grip: Added recoil control to compensate for the loss for the Task Force Barrel.
  • Ammunition – 65 Round Speed Mag: Large 65 round magazine with fast reloads.

Tips for the field

  • Aim for the head. Seriously – Accuracy is king. If you hit only body shots up close, you’ll get wiped by an enemy with an MP5 or Mac-10. Keep your distance and aim for the head. As the target closes in, aim high.
  • Who cares about ammo? – This Bullfrog has 65 rounds of ammo per magazine, with quick reloads. If you see an enemy, shoot first, ask questions later.
  • Wait… it has range too? – The Bullfrog has an impressive range for an SMG. It might take a ton of shots to down an opponent, but if you aim for the head at medium range, you might actually get a down.
