NICKMERCS gives thoughts on Warzone Caldera map

Nick recently gave his thoughts on Warzone’s Caldera map.

While Nick has been busy grinding competitive Apex Legends, the popular streamer returned to Warzone to check out Caldera. The popular streamer previously explained why Caldera won’t change his mind on being “done” with Warzone, but he has now revealed his opinions on Verdansk’s replacement. 

“Gun in Verdansk are 9 out of 10, on Caldera, they’re a 3 out of 10,” explained Nick. “The vehicles in Verdansk are 10 out 10, they’re some of the best vehicles I have played in any video game in my entire life. Caldera is a -1.”

It’s clear Nick isn’t a huge fan of Caldera, but the streamer did rate the map itself slightly higher than Verdansk. “Verdansk was dark, but it was very comfortable, there were a lot of great POIs. I’ll give it a strong 7. I’m giving Caldera an early 8.” 

One of the biggest negatives surrounding the new map has been how Vanguard’s weapons underperform when compared to their Modern Warfare and Cold War counterparts. “They’re so bad, it’s not even comparable to what we were playing with. It’s because we’re in 1930, man.”

Whether Nick will play more Warzone in the future remains to be seen, but like most streamers, he doesn’t seem too impressed with Caldera.
