Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff made a hilarious mistake during a Warzone livestream, completely embarrassing himself to his random teammates.

Nick is arguably one of the most entertaining streamers on Twitch. He’s become one of the biggest names on the platform, thanks in part to his top-tier gameplay but mainly because of the amount of fun he makes his streams for viewers, with the people he plays with and his style of humor.

But, while viewers understand that he’s going to be a bit quirky at times, that might not be something strangers are prepared for.

Unfortunately for Nick, when loading into a random squads match, he got off on a bit of a strange foot, and evidently felt the pressure.

Nick has become a monumental success with his Twitch streams and YouTube channel.

After discussing how he likes to blast a particular song through every speaker in his house, Nick explained how he uses it as if it’s a mating call… and proceeds to provide viewers with examples of a mating call.

After screeching and squawking down the microphone, one of his teammates connects their mic and just tells him that it’s “impressive.”

Then, once Nick has confirmed that his teammate heard everything that went down, he quickly left the match and told viewers that “it’s too awkward” for him to continue, laughing at his own mistake.

“I couldn’t stay in that one,” he said once he started searching for another match. “That was f**king awkward. I was doing my mating calls in his ear the whole time, bro.”

The clip will be reminiscent for those who were fans of NICKMERCS before his switch from Fortnite to Warzone, thanks to his iconic rendition of Sean Paul’s Get Busy — which he sung while his microphone was on and Nate Hill was trying his very best to clutch up.

You’d think he would learn, but moments like those are why Nick has so many fans in the first place.

Maybe he should leave his mic unmuted permanently and just see what other funny moments could crop up.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
