NICKMERCS pushes for Scump, Pamaj and more to get CoD Creator Codes

Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has responded to criticism over his reception of the recently rolled out Call of Duty Creator Codes — and even agreed with some of the critics, too.

When Call of Duty first rolled out Creator Codes at the end of August, it was to help some of the biggest content creators in the game, with fans able to show support and said creators earning remuneration when their codes get used a certain amount.

There was one major issue, though, as the community were quick to point out: some of CoD’s biggest names didn’t get creator codes. NRG co-CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez was one of the first to point this out, alarmed at the likes of Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag not receiving codes.

Obviously, with millions of followers, subscribers and fans between them, the aforementioned players, as well as the likes of Austin ‘Pamaj’ Pamajewon, were pretty surprised not to get their own codes. As expected, this meant that those who did receive codes were catching quite a lot of flak, despite having no control over who did and didn’t get codes in the beta phase of its rollout.

While NICKMERCS has defended himself getting one already, explaining what he does for the community and discussing how long he has been in the Call of Duty scene, he’s also come out to say that he agrees with some of the criticism in a YouTube video posted on September 2.

“The fact that they rolled out this Creator Code program and didn’t include a few of these guys… It’s crazy,” he said. “We’re talking some of the biggest names in Call of Duty. Pamaj, Scump, Crim… I agree with the majority of you guys. I think they should have codes and been a part of the rollout.”

He continues by saying that he “doesn’t make the rules,” before speaking about his history in Call of Duty to explain why him receiving a code before others isn’t so out there.

Nick does make sure to point out a couple of times that this is still early stages and is just a beginner or “beta” phase, and he expects said players to receive codes down the line, so fans shouldn’t be too concerned right now.

Halloween is fast approaching, and some spooky new cosmetics have leaked, bringing two of the biggest ever horror franchises to Modern Warfare & Warzone with Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

For seasonal celebrations, we’ll often see Call of Duty implement fitting changes to its games, with new items or game modes for occasions such as Christmas or, in this instance Halloween.

It’s no different this year, as Halloween is hot on everyone’s minds, and it looks like you’re going to be able to mark the occasion by dressing up as some of the most iconic characters in horror. Not to mention bringing a fresh load of cosmetics such as calling cards and stickers to your inventory.

If you’re a horror fan, particularly of the Saw franchise and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you might want to have a look at what’s in store.

Call of Duty appears to be fully embracing spooky season in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

The following cosmetics popped up on the reliable COD Tracker website, which automatically pulls different bundles, weapons and more as soon as they’re added into the Modern Warfare and Warzone data, that isn’t always immediately available to regular customers.

There are apparently 27 cosmetic bundles following the October 13 update, with many of them based around the Halloween theme, but the two that stand out are the Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre Operator Packs.

Both will be available for 2,400 CoD Points whenever they drop. As with most Operator Packs, each of these will provide an Operator skin, a new melee weapon, gun blueprints, sprays, calling cards and more — take a look at what’s available in each below.

There isn’t yet a date set for when these bundles will become available, but with Halloween barely weeks away, expect to see them appear in the store sooner rather than later.

There will also be a number of free Halloween bundles during the Haunting of Verdansk event if these leaks are anything to go by, so you can get in on the action even if you don’t want to spend money on the Saw or Texas Chainsaw Massacre packs, so keep one eye on the store over the next couple of weeks.
