Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel showed how camping is ‘ruining’ Call of Duty: Warzone with a demonstration that had some pretty hilarious moments. 

Since it released on March 10, Warzone has been a big hit for Call of Duty. 30 million players have dropped in for at least one match on the Verdansk map – with tournaments for big-name content creators being held by a number of different organizers.

As a variety streamer, xQc has dabbled in the battle royale with varying success – though he has picked up plenty of wins and kills along the way. He’s had his issues with Warzone, though, showing how mantling is “broken” by hilariously jumping around his bedroom. In a similar fashion to that, he explained why he believes camping is ruining the game.

During his March 26 stream, the former Overwatch League professional had been waiting for a game of Warzone to load up when he gave a pretty funny analysis of his previous game.

“Some people are so slow-paced, they literally ruin the game dude,” the Canadian said before jumping up out of his chair and running around in circles in his room – claiming that was how his team played. 

However, he took a dive to the floor and hilariously started rolling around – mocking how other teams had been playing at a snail’s pace and just camping in one spot. “Yo Jeremy, you got lunch dude? You got snackies? Guys, guys there are people fighting outside guys,” he added, imitating his fellow players.

Of course, camping is an issue with other battle royales because it is a playstyle that is easy to adopt – but there’s no doubt that xQc left his chat in laughter as he rolled around on the floor.

One Call of Duty leaker has claimed that a limited-time mode is coming in season three that could force players to play at a faster pace because the gas would close in much quicker than normal – and xQc’s woes may finally be over.

Why Warzone streamers want NICKMERCS to delete his OP CR-56 AMAX video

Call of Duty: Warzone Season 6 doesn’t have a definitive meta and streamers apparently want to keep it that way, as they’ve asked NICKMERCS to hide his overpowered CR-56 AMAX loadout video.

NICKMERCS tries a lot of different guns and shares the best ones with his massive community. That’s especially useful now, following nerfs to the SP-R, because everyone is looking for a new medium-to-long-range weapon and streamers seem to want their preferred AR to remain a secret.

As the Kilo 141 and, to a lesser extent, even the classic M4-A1 have returned to prominence across Verdansk, the high-damage CR-56 AMAX is making the rounds among the game’s best. Unfortunately for those players, the secret might be out, as NICKMERCS made a video describing the gun as a Kilo replacement and shared the optimal class for the heavy-recoil weapon with his 3.05 million YouTube followers. 

Although the streamers likely don’t care and are just joking, it’s a funny testament to what a deadly dynamo the AMAX can be in Season 6 when wielded by the right hands.

NICKMERC’s CR-56 AMAX loadout for Warzone

It’s not exactly clear why this class is getting so much more attention than his original Season 5 setup, but it’s possible that swapping out a Merc Foregrip for the Ranger gives the gun enough recoil stability to make it a force on Verdansk.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor.
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440.
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic.
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip.
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags.

In response to the MFAM’s leader popularizing the niche AR, popular professional Warzone player, JoeWo, lovingly asked NICKMERCS to delete his video.

In replies, NICKMERCS and Swagg’s teammate during their championship run at the $100,000 Toronto Ultra Warzone tournament, DiazBiffle, seconded the motion.

As of yet, there has been no response to JoeWo’s promise that he “will do anything, literally anything” for NICKMERCS to delete the video. But the Warzone star hasn’t posted the video on Twitter, so maybe he did take JoeWo up on the offer.

Still, for those thinking they discovered a cheat code with this loadout, a word of caution: while the CR-56 AMAX does deal a tremendous amount of damage, its recoil is very difficult to control.

That gives the AR a steep learning curve, but one that, when mastered, could provide massive dividends.
