Trash talking is a staple of Call of Duty esports, and it was in full force even before the CWL Fort Worth major tournament kicked off on March 15.

In the hour leading up to the first set of matches at Fort Worth, CWL caster and analyst Clint ‘Maven’ Evans hosted a session of Hot Mic, featuring eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, Evil Geniuses’ Dillon ‘Attach’ Price, and Gen.G’s Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon.

During a segment of the show, Maven asked the three players to take crack at drawing a new logo for CWL team Midnight Esports, who have been on the wrong end of a lot of jokes and roasts about their recent brand overhaul.

While Clayster and Attach actually did try their best in creating a replacement logo for Midnight, Envoy, who recently played for the team in the CWL Pro League, decided to take a shot at his former org.

Envoy’s drawing was no esports logo at all; it was instead the word “TRASH” written boldly atop a picture of a trashcan. 

The reaction of the players and Maven was exactly as you’d expect; the group laughed in amusement at how Envoy had used the opportunity to further roast his former org.

Those who have kept up with CWL Rostermania recently will find it hard to blame Envoy for his stunt, considering how contentious the past few weeks had been for him and Midnight.

Despite going 5-2 in the CWL Pro League, Midnight decided to dismantle their roster in favor of more experienced veteran players, which happened around the same time that they were faced with serious accusations of blackmail.

Envoy was formerly part of the Midnight roster that qualified for the CWL Pro League and did well over the first two weeks.

There is no doubt that Envoy would love to get a crack at playing against his former org at CWL Fort Worth, especially if it comes with the chance of eliminating them from the tournament. 

However, with Gen.G being in Pool A and Midnight in Pool C, a meeting between the two teams, if it were to happen, would have to take place in the knockout stage of the competition.

Why Warzone streamers want NICKMERCS to delete his OP CR-56 AMAX video

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 doesn’t have a definitive meta and streamers apparently want to keep it that way, as they’ve asked NICKMERCS to hide his overpowered CR-56 AMAX loadout video.

NICKMERCS tries a lot of different guns and shares the best ones with his massive community. That’s especially useful now, following nerfs to the SP-R, because everyone is looking for a new medium-to-long-range weapon and streamers seem to want their preferred AR to remain a secret.

As the Kilo 141 and, to a lesser extent, even the classic M4-A1 have returned to prominence across Verdansk, the high-damage CR-56 AMAX is making the rounds among the game’s best. Unfortunately for those players, the secret might be out, as NICKMERCS made a video describing the gun as a Kilo replacement and shared the optimal class for the heavy-recoil weapon with his 3.05 million YouTube followers. 

Although the streamers likely don’t care and are just joking, it’s a funny testament to what a deadly dynamo the AMAX can be in Season 6 when wielded by the right hands.

NICKMERC’s CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

It’s not exactly clear why this class is getting so much more attention than his original Season 5 setup, but it’s possible that swapping out a Merc Foregrip for the Ranger gives the gun enough recoil stability to make it a force on Verdansk.

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

In response to the MFAM’s leader popularizing the niche AR, popular professional Warzone player, JoeWo, lovingly asked NICKMERCS to delete his video.

In replies, NICKMERCS and Swagg’s teammate during their championship run at the $100,000 Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament, DiazBiffle, seconded the motion.

As of yet, there has been no response to JoeWo’s promise that he “will do anything, literally anything” for NICKMERCS to delete the video. But the Warzone star hasn’t posted the video on Twitter, so maybe he did take JoeWo up on the offer.

Still, for those thinking they discovered a cheat code with this loadout, a word of caution: while the CR-56 AMAX does deal a tremendous amount of damage, its recoil is very difficult to control.

That gives the AR a steep learning curve, but one that, when mastered, could provide massive dividends.
