NICKMERCS Is Quitting Warzone Battle Royale Modes

If you felt a disturbance in the air, it’s probably because NICKMERCS is announcing he’s quitting Warzone Battle Royale modes.

When it comes to Battle Royales, Call of Duty Warzone is one of the best there is. Since March 2020, the game has been fairly unparalleled in its corner of the market, but it’s certainly not without its flaws.

Right now, it seems that Warzone hacks and cheaters are getting “worse and worse” in July 2021. And with Activision making no moves to improve anti-cheat, we’re starting to doubt a fix is ever coming.

The issue is so prevalent that Warzone cheaters can now force developer errors on other players mid-game. And a lot of players are clearly willing to cheat just to get that Battle Royale win.

On top of that, we’ve got the occasional questionable addition to the game, and the occasional game-breaking Warzone glitch ruining the fun. And it seems that one content creator has had enough.

Warzone Battle Royale Isn’t Fun for NICKMERCS

In a new video, NICKMERCS reveals that he’s not having as much fun with Warzone’s standard Battle Royale modes.

Despite NICKMERCS being one of the biggest Warzone content creators on the planet, even he’s not enjoying Warzone Battle Royale right now. Citing hacking and stream sniping as two of the game’s biggest issues, it’s clear that the streamer suffers more than the average player.

After all, NICKMERCS recently revealed how he avoids stream snipers but even that method isn’t 100% successful. Nowadays, it appears that the streamer has been quitting Warzone Battle Royale modes in favor of other playlists.

The faster-paced Rebirth Island or Warzone’s popular Buyback Quads are just two ways that NICKMERCS is getting his Warzone fill without losing interest.

“It’s like the only way I’ve been having some real fun playing Warzone lately is playing Rebirth or playing Buyback,” NICKMERCS admits. “The normal Battle Royale mode’s just not been as fun for me.”

UPDATE: NICKMERCS also revealed why Warzone is attracting more cheaters this season.


What’s interesting is that some of the Warzone side game modes actually seem to have no SBMM. So perhaps NICKMERCS is finding the game more enjoyable due to the presence of less sweaty lobbies.

A lot of his fans will be grateful that NICKMERCS isn’t quitting Warzone completely, but perhaps it’s only a matter of time if things continue. Although the top streamer makes a great deal of his income from Warzone content, he also branches out to Fortnite and even gym streams on occasion.

Other Warzone players are still calling for a Ranked playlist to reduce SBMM, but Activision is unlikely to take notice. And when it comes to anti-cheat in Warzone, NICKMERCS believes it’s actually impossible for Warzone to fix cheating.

We’re only a matter of months away from Call of Duty: Vanguard’s launch at this point. And the game’s development team is likely already gearing up to release Warzone’s upcoming WW2 map.

New leaks even reveal that Warzone’s WW2 Vanguard map will be significantly larger than Verdansk, with planes, tanks, and more!

Maybe the people that play this game 10 hours a day have ruined verdansk for the average person? Not counting the hackers but hearing these guys complain about how tough it has gotten doesn't get any sympathy frome me. The game is the way it is because of you.
