Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop, a popular gaming entertainer in his own right, believes his Twitch counterpart Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar is currently the best streamer out there.

When it comes to streaming in the world of gaming, there is a small echelon of people who are several rungs of the ladder higher than everyone else.

Two of those entertainers are Tim and CouRage, with the latter’s rise to prominence leading to them becoming very good friends and often playing games together live on stream.

When asked about his thoughts on the current crop of streamers during an exclusive interview with Dexerto at Dreamhack Atlanta in partnership with Chipotle, CouRage named Tim as the “best” one, an opinion that millions of others share

“Overall, I think the best streamer, in regards to his humor and what he can do, I think is Tim,” he said.

CouRage - TwitterCouRage and TimTheTatman have been close friends ever since the former CoD caster became a full-time streamer.

Why CouRage believes Tim is the “best” streamer

In CouRage’s eyes, TimTheTatman possesses the skill set and all of the qualities that a streamer needs to be truly successful and entertaining.

“I might inflate his ego a little but TimTheTatman is the epitome of a streamer in his house just playing games, funny, self-deprecating,” he explained.

In reality, when speaking about Tim, CouRage could have easily been describing himself, because most, if not all of those qualities certainly apply to him as well.

That’s probably why the former Call of Duty caster found so much success in such a short period of time since moving to full-time streaming, because much like his Twitch counterpart, he too knows how to keep a large audience entertained while still be able to focus on the games he’s playing.

CouRage and TimTheTatman – a fast-flourishing friendship

One of the many reasons why CouRage was able to quickly rise to prominence as a full-time streamer was his friendship with Tim and several of the other big stars.

The two have collaborated together on countless occasions, had many hilarious back-and-forths on social media, and, along with DrLupo, were part of the exclusive few who got invited to Ninja’s New Years celebration in New York City last year.

It’s safe to say that as far as big streamers go, few are closer friends than these two, so it’s not a huge surprise Jack would name Tim as the best streamer right now.

NICKMERCS reveals big change to make Mac 10 Warzone loadout even more OP

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is one of the biggest names in Warzone right now, and his Mac 10 loadout is imitated across Verdansk — but he’s made a pretty big change to it.

Since Warzone and Black Ops Cold War integrated with one another in December, the Mac 10 has quickly become a go-to weapon in Warzone, an easy-to-control SMG that really packs a punch.

Pair it with a top ranged weapon such as the DMR, CR-56 AMAX, or Kar98k and you’ve got a loadout that is perfectly suited to battle royale.

NICKMERCS’ Mac 10 loadout has become the standard for the weapon, but he’s now made a big change to it, and you can bet this will catch on sooner rather than later.

The Mac 10 is a formidable force in Verdansk.

NICKMERCS new Mac 10 loadout

NICKMERCS has kept his Mac 10 almost exactly the same as what it was before, barring one major change: the Ammunition used.

“I swapped out the Drum Mag for the Fast Mag,” he revealed in his January 17 YouTube upload. “You know, to add a little extra speed.”

The Salvo 53 Rnd Fast Mag offers the same increased clip size but with an even faster reload speed than the STANAG 53 Rnd Drum. It does reduce the ADS time further than the STANAG, but as Nick says, it lets him play even faster than usual. This will be especially helpful when taking on multiple enemies in a short time span, making sure the likelihood of dying while reloading is minimal.

Elsewhere, all of the other attachments are exactly the same. Here’s a rundown of what he uses:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Brake 9
  • Barrel: 5.3” Extended
  • Stock: Wire Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 53 Rnd Fast Mag

Most players would probably also opt for the Agency Suppressor rather than the Muzzle Brake on the Mac 10, but it’s clearly working out for Nick.

We would recommend trying out the Fast Mag Nick uses, especially in team games rather than just solos, but whether this impacts the meta at all remains to be seen.
