NICKMERCS makes hilarious rookie error during Warzone Twitch stream

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.

Best CR-56 AMAX loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The CR-56 AMAX is a great gun choice to utilize in Modern Warfare for those who value mobility. Here, we break down two of the strongest CR-56 loadouts you should be using. 

While the Fennec SMG has proved popular amongst those who favor the run and gun playstyle, the CR-56 AMAX gives players more ranged precision and damage for sacrificing speed. The Galil, now known as the CR-56 AMAX, aims to shake up the current assault rifle meta, giving players another option outside of the incredibly popular Grau 5.56 and M4A1 loadouts

The Galil dominated foes in the multiplayer battlefields of Black Ops 1, allowing players to kill targets in just three shots. As a result, this deadly assault rifle became popular for those that wanted to wrack up high kill counts. While the CR-56 AMAX has lost its original name, it still packs a real punch in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. In order to help you get the most out of the CR-56 AMAX, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge. 

Best CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost your ranged damage with these CR-56 AMAX attachments.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Unlike Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer maps, the vast frozen landscapes of Verdansk require players to test their medium to long-range shooting. While the initial dash for loot results in plenty of close-quarters firefights, you’ll also need a weapon that can effectively deliver lethal rounds at a distance should you wish to keep your enemies at bay. 

As a result, this loadout is all about pushing the CR-56 AMAX to its ranged limits, while also keeping your ADS speed to a minimum. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Zodiac S440. These two attachments drastically increase your effective damage range, reduce the CR-56 AMAX’s recoil, and speed up its bullet travel time. While these attachments may increase your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you need to land those all-important ranged head and body shots. 

The VLK 3.0x Optic is great for a higher zoom level, giving you a greater edge when attacking from a distance, at a slight sacrifice of ADS speed.

The Commando Foregrip keeps the gun stable when aiming down sights and firing, while the XRK CR-56 Stippled Wrap greatly decreases your overall ADS time and sprint to fire speed. Not only will these attachments help keep your shots on target, they will also give you the ADS speed needed to be competitive in close-quarter fights.  

Lastly, the 45 Round Mags supply players with more than enough bullets to shred through even the most well-armored of foes. Having the extra rounds will also keep you from needing to reload every second, so if you wish to avoid any frustrating deaths, then make sure you equip this attachment.

Infinity Ward/DexertoUse this loadout when you want to rival Modern Warfare’s close-quarter SMGs.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Zodiac S440
  • CR-56 EXO
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags

Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer favors close to medium range firefights, so this loadout is all about buffing the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed and lowering the gun’s recoil. 

The CR-56 EXO stock drastically lowers the CR-56 AMAX’s ADS speed while increasing your ADS strafe, allowing you to quickly deliver a highly accurate spray of bullets in just a blink of an eye. While this attachment won’t stop you from falling prey to the popular MP5 and Fennec loadouts, it will increase your odds of survival when encountering the SMGs. 

The XRK Zodiac S440, Commando Foregrip, and 45 Round Mags are the three most optimal attachments here, so make sure you build around these for a new loadout.
