With the release of the V.1.20 patch, Sledgehammer Games have added a brand new Division to Call of Duty: World War II, named Commando.

Commando follows a similar layout to the rest of the available Divisions, with four tiers of progression, while prestiging Commando rewards players with the new AS-44 rifle.

Tier 1 of Commando Progression is the Paratrooper Insert, which allows players to parachute into the map after death, via a “designated drop site”. Players will be able to fire their weapon and use lethal and tactical grenades while descending, but it may leave them open to attacks from below.

When Tier 2 is unlocked, players using the Commando division will regenerate health quicker than other Divisions, while kills immediately trigger the healing process. This means there is no waiting for healing to begin when you take down an enemy, it automatically starts the moment you get the kill.

Tier 3 rewards players with extra ammo and additional points towards killstreaks for multi-kills and headshots, while Tier 4 allows Commando division users the ability to take a second Basic Training ability, the only Division in World War II that enables this.

The reward for completing all four tiers of progression in the Commando Division is the AS-44, a brand new automatic rifle. This gun features a high amount of damage, but that comes at the price of some heavy recoil.

The release of Commando isn’t the first time that Sledgehammer have added new Divisions to the game. Back in June 2018, the Cavalry Division was added to the game, bringing with it infamous Riot Shield.

The Commando Division is available right now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 through the new V.1.20 patch, with the patch expected to release to PC players on August 29.

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.
