Warzone has a new best DMR loadout, thanks to some testing done by professional streamer NICKMERCS.
Those who have been playing Warzone for more than a few weeks will know about the nightmare that was the DMR 14.
When Black Ops Cold War content first came to Warzone, it didn't take fans long to realize that the DMR was broken. The weapon absolutely shredded players, leading to whole squads dying in seconds.
What's more, the gun had incredibly-little recoil and high penetration. It was basically a sniper rifle with rapid-fire capabilities.
For a while there, the DMR 14 completely broke Warzone. But after two nerfs, Raven Software finally stopped the weapon from being overpowered.
That is, until now.
The Best DMR 14 Loadout in Warzone - January 2021
According to professional Warzone player NICKMERCS, the DMR is still one of the best weapons in the game. And he's got what's most likely the best DMR 14 loadout in Warzone, as of 2021.
In a new video, the YouTube and Twitch star proves that the DMR is still a powerful weapon to contend with. This is especially the case when using the best DMR 14 loadout in Warzone.
"To be honest with you, the DMR did get nerfed but it never really left," NICKMERCS confirms. "I think we all thought it did, but after giving it a second look man this thing pretty much still does the same thing that it used to do man."
After making a "quick couple switches" to his old DMR 14 class, NICKMERCS claims he doesn't notice a difference to the gun, even post-nerf.
NICKMERCS also claims that the DMR is still the gun to use in tournaments. However, NICKMERCS himself refuses to compete in Warzone tournaments, thanks to some big issues.

Here's the new "max damage" DMR 14, as presented by NICKMERCS himself:

Compare it with our very own expertly chosen Best Warzone DMR Loadout.
With the DMR in hand, NICKMERCS helps his Warzone squad drop 63 kills between them. It's not quite NICKMERCS' personal best in Warzone, but it's still a great game altogether.
Bear in mind, this new DMR is designed for minimal recoil and may see some trade-offs. However, it seems that the major DMR 14 nerf isn't as big as we thought.
