Call of Duty’s new entry into the battle royale genre, Warzone, has fast become a fan-favorite, and all of the top streamers in the world are getting on and trying their hand at it – and Jaryd ‘Summit’ Lazar is no exception to this.

Since it released on March 10, Summit has been playing the game religiously and become pretty adept at it – which comes as no surprise to fans who have watched his skills transfer across pretty much any game he tries.

Having played it so much, Summit has gained a pretty good idea of what’s good and what isn’t in Warzone and has revealed what he believes to be one of the most overpowered features in the game: the vehicles.

Playing alongside 100 Thieves’ Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and NoahJ456, Summit had a pretty stacked squad and, when looking to make a quicker rotation, approached a truck to get going.

As they ran towards it, Summit said: “I’m going to be honest, that truck and the blue car are overpowered as f**k, dude.”

He went on, saying that he “runs people over all day” in the truck as it knocks them down in one hit while keeping drivers relatively protected.

Funnily enough, Summit didn’t even realize one of the most powerful features of the truck until Noah told him that “you can’t shoot through the front window,” which left Summit absolutely flabbergasted.

Ironically, after getting in the truck, the squad didn’t last too long, attempting to pounce on an enemy team, only to find themselves heading to the Gulag within a matter of seconds.

That said, the trio made a good point: the truck is a super powerful tool to utilize in Warzone, and maybe there need to be some adjustments to make it fairer for potential victims to counter.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
