Popular Twitch streamer Call of Duty world champion, Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss, are looking forward to the release of Modern Warfare after multiplayer was finally unveiled.

The much anticipated gameplay reveal of the new Modern Warfare game left many with mixed emotions, after seeing the brand new look of the upcoming addition to the Call of Duty franchise.

There was a lot to dissect in the “Gunfight” mode which was displayed by popular Rainbow 6 Siege with the new leaning feature.

However, former world champion KiLLa, who has always been vocal on the state of competitive CoD, felt that this change in direction was needed for the franchise.

He expressed that the removal of slide ‘canceling’, which is a prevalent mechanic in Black Ops 4 used for the upper hand in gunfights, would lead to a much more tactical game, “Game looks amazing imo,” he said “anyone saying otherwise is a slide canceling moron.”

Dr Disrespect, who has had hands-on experience with the game already, agreed.

The Doc expects it to be a good year for Call of Duty, agreeing with KiLLa by explaining that Modern Warfare’s gameplay requires more “pacing and tactics” than the likes of Black Ops 4, “You’re gonna love it KiLLa,” he replied, “Actual talented pacing and tactics.” 

Although KiLLa and Dr Disrespect seem positive about the new changes coming to Modern Warfare, other Call of Duty stars, such as ACHES, have their reservations about the changes to movement mechanics.

The full multiplayer reveal for Modern Warfare is set for August 1, where fans will get a chance to see exactly what is in store for the game’s release on October 25.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
