100 Thieves’ founder Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff got into a war of words (all in good spirit) while playing Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode, Blackout.
Both long time CoD players, Nadeshot of course formerly a pro player, the duo took their skills to CoD’s first foray into battle royale together, pulling NICKMERCS away from his favored Fortnite.
But, it didn’t take long for the pair to dispute whose decision making was better, with both passionate and competitive players – and who both like to take the lead.
After a play went slightly askew (but both of them survived), the pair launched into a ruthless roasting session, which saw Nadeshot try to pull rank as the 100 Thieves founder, but NICKMERCS hit right back, boasting that he has 10x the viewers.
NICKMERCS clearly didn’t take well to Nade saying “you ain’t the head honcho no more”, retorting with “motherf***er, I’ve got 30,000 viewers, you got three – don’t talk to me about honcho! … Is this some CEO shit? Watch your hand, because the dog bites back.”
This seemed to be where the line was drawn for Nadeshot, who quickly wanted to get back to discussing the gameplay.
While things did seem to get heated for a second, knowing the relationship and personality of these two, it was probably all in jest.
NICKMERCS had previously dismissed playing the new Call of Duty, preferring to stick with Fortnite, but the battle royale experience provided by Blackout may have swayed him.
Nadeshot has expressed his enjoyment for the new mode plenty, so fans may be in for some more intense Blackout duo streams from the two 100 Thieves members.
