With the exception of the now-nerfed DMR, Black Ops Cold War weapons have not made much of an impact on the Warzone meta, but NICKMERCS thinks the Krig 6 assault rifle could be a viable choice to run.

With the DMR nerf, players have been struggling to find the next big weapon in Warzone — which is probably a good thing, especially with how much hate the DMR received.

Many players have seen themselves returning to the likes of the CR-56 AMAX, Kilo 141 or the Grau, as more familiar Modern Warfare weapons, but the BOCW guns could be very much viable in the current meta.

In BOCW, the Krig is one of the main assault rifles due to its top accuracy and range, as well as decent fire rate, making it formidable at most ranges — and this could be reflected in Verdansk, too.

The Krig 6 is a top AR in Black Ops Cold War.

While everyone’s trying out weapons new and old, Nick thinks he’s stumbled on a weapon that could actually be usable in Warzone.

Although it’s not shredding opponents like the DMR did, this Krig 6 loadout packs a punch and seems to be fairly level with the other top ARs.

Here’s how Nick builds out his Krig for maximum impact in Verdansk:

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 19.7” Takedown
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag

You can see in his gameplay that the Krig 6 is a very respectable gun, especially at medium ranges. It might not do serious damage from longer ranges, but you should be opting for a sniper of some sort to take those fights.

Nick got himself 17 kills before finding himself dead, beamed by none other than a Krig 6, which proved so powerful that Nick was sure the opponent had Stopping Power rounds.

So, give this gun a whirl — you might just be surprised by how much you enjoy it.

100 Thieves Warzone streamer Tommey has been handed a ban from Twitch and fans were scrambling to try and figure out the exact reason why.

Tommey is one of the most popular Warzone streamers out there playing under the 100 Thieves brand, but this wasn’t enough to save him from getting punished for a ToS violation by Twitch.

Out of nowhere on February 23, the 28-year-old received a 14-day ban on the platform for “releasing non-sensitive personal information on VOD,” according to what Tommey told Dexerto.

Responding to the ban on Twitter the streamer simply said “Well, this sucks?” with fans filling up the replies wondering when he’ll be back, and criticising Twitch.

What kind of personal information Tommey released and what kind of situation led up to the ban is currently unknown, but be sure to stick with Dexerto as we’ll be updating this story with more information as it becomes available.
