NICKMERCS reveals why he doesn’t compete in Warzone tournaments anymore

If you ever wondered why NICKMERCS doesn’t compete in Warzone tournaments anymore, he reveals all in his latest video.

In his latest YouTube video, top Warzone player NICKMERCS has explained why he doesn’t compete in tournaments anymore citing “hacks” and “scumbags” as big deterrers.

Warzone’s popularity seems to be neverending with Call of Duty’s Battle Royale game earning numerous plaudits and maintaining high numbers across Twitch, Steam, and various other mediums.

But even casual Warzone players know that the game is frequently hindered by a myriad of game-breaking glitches and detrimental bugs. NICKMERCS has said that these issues are a big problem for the competitive CoD scene.

NICKMERCS doesn’t do competitive Warzone

Getting straight to business, NICKMERCS’ newest video begins with a big quote saying “we’re talking about a glitch in Warzone that if everybody knew about, it would probably break the game.”

Not only that, but it seems like some parts of the CoD community have suggested that even NICKMERCS benefits from this glitch. Very quickly you start to get an idea of why he doesn’t play competitive tournaments anymore.

There’s already huge pressure on some of the renowned Call of Duty personalities to deliver stellar content and be entertaining, but when they’re being falsely accused of cheating, it can become difficult.

He directly addresses his accusers by saying “thanks for the compliment” and that he’s not like that. He goes on to say that it’s “a big reason as to why I stopped playing these competitive tournaments.”

The lobby glitch that he discusses basically allows players to manipulate the game’s settings by messing around with their internet routers to make the game think you’re somewhere else etc. All this is to grant players an easier lobby against less-skilled players. The issue is quite widespread with NICKMERCS saying that the exploit has been sent over to Activision.

But it’s not just that that bothers him, he goes on to mention the “hacks, wall hacks, aim hacks, you name it.” It’s no surprise that these would bother him as you would expect to enter a tournament and not be seen through an invisible wall.

NICKMERCS laughed whilst saying “the Call of Duty community is a lot of things, but there really is some scumbags in this place.”

You have to believe that until Warzone can go through a sustained period of certainty with no major glitches and bugs ruining the experience, then NICKMERCS will continue to avoid big tournaments.

Warzone devs preview Season 3 changes: Roze Skin update, FFAR & Sykov nerf, and more

Big changes previewed for Warzone Season 3 including FFAR & Sykov nerfs.

Roze Skin - COD: Warzone

Raven Software has dropped a preview of some changes coming to Call of Duty: Warzone with the Season 3 update.

The studio responded to a big Twitter thread by YouTuber CourageJD. Courage dropped a list of major changes he wants to see to bring Warzone back to a better place, especially with a lot of the fan complaints.

Raven Software replied to CourageJD’s thread with a preview of some of the changes the studio is making to Call of Duty: Warzone soon, including many coming with Season 3 update on April 22.

Warzone Season 3 Updates

  • An adjustment to Roze
  • A significant balance pass to weapons such as the Tac Rifle Charlie, M16, FFAR 1, and Sykov
  • Fix for MW weapon perks + sniper glint
  • Change to how you acquire the RC-XD

Many of the changes listed above are some of the big complaints players have had over the last few months in Warzone. Roze skin having almost an invisibility look in the dark has been big for players, and Raven has finally acknowledged that.

The latest weapon addition for Warzone, the Sykov Pistol from the Modern Warfare universe, was added on April 15 and instantly became overpowered. Raven now confirms a nerf is coming for it.

The studio also told Courage that they want to “reassure” fans that all feedback is being read around Warzone.

More Surprises To Come

Raven has promised in another tweet that there are more “surprises” in store for Season 3 that will be announced with the update.

Other changes expected for Season 3 is a revamp of Verdansk map, which will see the map be transported and rebuilt for the 1980s Black Ops Cold War era.

Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone is set to being on April 22, with an initial event teased for April 21 starting at 12PM PT. Exact launch times for the new content will be announced soon.

Game-breaking Warzone glitch is turning players invincible

A new game-breaking glitch is turning Warzone players invincible, where not even a Finishing Move can take them down.

A “God Mode” glitch has been plaguing Warzone since the April 15 update, which seemingly causing random players to become invincible.

Warzone players have long been taking advantage of exploits to become invisible, as well as hide in rooftops and walls around Verdansk. A new glitch that has cropped up after the April 15 update is now turning players invincible.

Although the over-powered new Sykov Pistol and the Radiation Zones turning players into Zombies has been what’s on Warzone players’ minds, a game-breaking new glitch has been ruining matches in the background.

It appears that this bizarre new bug is turning Warzone players invincible.

Reddit user SCAR020 shared footage of them fighting an invincible player. No matter how many bullets, rockets, or grenades SCAR020’s squad hit them with, they seemingly take no damage.

Rather than the bullets not connecting, the hit markers still appear but the enemy is otherwise unaffected. To top it off, the invincible player even survives an execution.

SCAR020 isn’t alone in encountering this bug, as the CODWarzone subreddit has seen several players reporting the same issue. Reddit user gremah93 also shared a similar clip in which they get infinite hit markers on the opponent, and even perform a Finishing Move, to no effect.

It’s unknown if this bug is caused by a purposeful exploit like the Loadout Drop invincibility or helicopter invisibility, or it’s randomly happening to innocent players.

Some users have suggested the issue is caused by lag, but these invincible players consistently surviving Finishing Moves have led the community to believe otherwise.

Raven Software are yet to acknowledge the issue, but they were quick to disable the helicopters and patch the latest Stim Glitch, so if this bug continues to plague Warzone, it’s likely to be quickly addressed.

Nuclear radiation spreading across Warzone Verdansk as Season 3 approaches

The end of the current Verdansk is approaching as nuclear radiation is spreading across the map.

Published

on

The end of the current Verdansk in Warzone as we know it near. Nova 6 gas has started to spread across the map.

Following the playlist update on April 15 and April 16, Raven Software has started what appears to be the end of the current Verdansk map.

Three zones, which were the first two to get Zombies, now have a Red Nuclear Symbol over them on the mini map and cannot be fully accessed.

These three locations are Ship Wreck, Prison, and as of April 16, Hospital. We expect the radiation to continue to expand as we get closer to the start of Season 3 of Warzone.

Here’s what the radiation zone looks like on the mini map, as of April 16.

When players attempt to go to these areas, there’s a green radiation all over. As you enter the area, your player instantly takes damage until you die. The only way to prevent the radiation from hurting you is with a Gas mask, but those also run out pretty quickly.

Here’s a video of the location and it in action.

Players who are in Solo modes will die to the radiation and be sent to the Gulag. For players in duos, trios, or quads, upon dying to the radiation, you will actually become a Zombie. JackFrags video here showcases it:

We are expecting this to expand to more locations in Verdansk, probably lined up with where Zombies have headed since the start of Season 2. That would mean Hospital, Finance District, Super Store, and Dam amongst the locations.

The Nuke Event for Call of Duty: Warzone is set to begin April 21 at 12PM Pacific Time.

Stay tuned for the latest news on Call of Duty: Warzone.
