NICKMERCS has returned to Warzone after a hiatus, and the popular content creator believes he has found the one SMG that will be replacing all of the other ones in the Call of Duty battle royale.

There is a wide range of powerful weapons that players can equip and use to dominate their enemies in Call of Duty: Warzone with SMGs being some of the best, especially when it comes to close-quarter battles.

Fan-favorite streamer and YouTuber NICKMERCS has recently dove into Warzone with one particular SMG that he believes is the replacement for all of the other ones available in Warzone.

NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout

This SMG that NICKMERCS believes is the replacement for every other SMG in Warzone is the OTs 9 from Black Ops Cold War.

This compact weapon has great mobility and stopping power making it a perfect choice for players when it comes to winning close-quarter gunfights.

You can find the Warzone OTs 9 loadout that NICKMERCS uses below:

  • Muzzle – GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel – 8.1″ Task Force
  • Laser – None
  • Optic – None
  • Stock – KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel – None
  • Magazine VDV 40 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip – Serpent Wrap

The video that NICKMERCS used this OTs 9 Warzone loadout in showed off the power of this SMG in the Call of Duty battle royale, as he was able to secure a double-digit kill win in what would be a solid performance for any warzone player.

While the NICKMERCS OTs 9 Warzone loadout may not be a meta weapon when the Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone integration takes place with a new map and anti-cheat, there is no doubt that it is easily a solid replacement for any SMG that a player may feel is not performing as good as they want.

Raven Software has pushed out an update for Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk LTM, and it changes several things including the Fear Mechanic.

Ghosts of Verdansk is the themed mode that celebrates Halloween in Call of Duty: Warzone. The devs have released a small update that provides some quality of life adjustments to the mode – particularly with its Fear Meter and ghosts.

Despite only being here for a small amount of time, Raven Software has felt it important that they alter some of the settings in Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk game mode with a fresh update.

Plenty of players are getting stuck into the new LTM to enjoy and contribute to the 2021 Halloween season, but there are one or two areas that Raven has felt the need to deal with early in the game mode’s lifecycle.

A Tweet from the official Raven Software account has detailed all the different changes that players can expect in Warzone’s Ghosts of Verdansk limited-time mode for The Haunting event.

Many of these changes were based on community feedback about the Ghosts of Verdabsk game mode, so it is nice to see the Warzone developers take this feedback and use it to improve the Ghosts of Verdansk limited-time mode.

Here are the changes in full:

  • Ghosts can now drop ammo when killed
  • Souls will be removed when too far out in the gas
  • Passive Fear gain has been reduced
  • Increased Fear reduction when killing Ghosts and humans

The Fear mechanic is one of the mode’s most important features as it can cause jumpscares and obscure the player’s screen.

But there has been the complaint on social media and Reddit that it’s difficult to reduce the Fear mechanic, even when using the Sacred Grounds.

This update should hopefully alleviate some of those troubles and make Ghosts of Verdansk even more enjoyable for players for the rest of the time it is in the Call of Duty battle royale’s Halloween season.
