The FaZe Clan entertainer has already given his opinion on why Caldera hasn’t matched up to Verdansk’s high standards, and a December 11 YouTube video saw him unveil his go-to loadout for Season 1.

His weapon of choice is the NZ-41, the Vanguard assault rifle which also featured in 2017’s CoD: WWII. The full class is detailed below:

Like almost all Vanguard classes, NICKMERCS‘ NZ-41 utilizes all ten possible attachments to augment the base weapon as much as possible.

His chosen attachments here are guaranteed to make the NZ-41 a medium-range behemoth, with the G16 2.5x optic perfect for lining enemies up at those middling distances.

There’s also a lot of balance to be found between accuracy enhancing attachments (like the Polymer Grip, Carver Foregrip, and F8 Stabilizer) and those than seek to improve damage and overall firepower (50 Round Mags, Lengthened ammunition, and the Orbweaver barrel).

The secondary that players take will depend on personal preference and playstyle. Because the NZ-41 thrives at medium ranges, players may struggle to outgun SMGs up close, or LMGs and more stable ARs at longer distances.

Naturally, then, the choice appears to come down to an SMG if you prefer an aggressive, run-and-gun style, or a sniper if you prefer to sit back and pick enemies off at range.

Regardless of your secondary, with this NZ-41 loadout, your primary will be difficult to beat.
