NICKMERCS Warzone Loadouts: Weapon attachments, perks, and more

Which weapons, attachments, perks, and equipment does NICKMERCS use when he's frying in Verdansk?

There’s an art to fine-tuning your loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone. It’s no big secret that loadouts hold the key to more successful gunfights in the free-to-play battle royale, but it can often be difficult to find the right balance with your weapon choices. If you’re a casual player who’s not really sure where to start, then Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff’s loadouts are a great place to start.

As one of Twitch’s biggest streamers, NICKMERCS has become the go-to guy for the best Warzone loadouts around. Not only does he reveal his setups on some of the most commonly used weapons, like the Grau or the M4A1, but he also manages to create some unique loadouts that shred enemies just as well.

His loadouts are so effective and popular that they can even result in full meta shifts in Warzone, as other streamers and casual players look to emulate his playstyle using these uncommon weapons. A prime example is the Bruen Mk9, an LMG that was barely touched by Warzone players until NICKMERCS built a ridiculously strong loadout class around it.

So how does he set up his weapons and perks and which of NICKMERCS’ Warzone loadouts has he been running recently? We’ve got the answers right here.


NICKMERCS’ Grau loadout is one of the most used in the entire game. The Grau itself is a popular weapon choice, but this particular setup really hits hard. Here are the five attachments he uses:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Tempus 26.4” Archangel
  • Commando Foregrip
  • XRK Void II
  • 50 Round Mags

This is the ideal build for the Grau. Those 50 Round Mags give you enough ammo to wipe out multiple players without having to reload and the Monolithic Suppressor means you won’t be appearing on the mini map while doing it. This build is also steady as a rock when it comes to recoil.

The blueprint he’s using is the Alabaster.

NICKMERCS usually runs his Grau alongside an AX-50 sniper (specs for which are further down this guide) in an Overkill loadout class. Alongside the Overkill perk, he runs E.O.D and Amped.

For his equipment, he takes a C4 and a Heartbeat Sensor.


NICKMERCS’ Bruen loadout class is so iconic that it has seen the LMG become one of Warzone’s most used weapons. This build packs all the ammo capacity you expect from an LMG, but is far superior than others in its class for reload and movement speeds. Here’s how NICKMERCS sets up his famous Bruen:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • XRK Summit 26.8”
  • Tac Laser
  • Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • 60 Round Mags

These attachments see the Bruen’s accuracy, range, and control stats jump considerably, while only taking a small hit to its mobility. That delicious Monolithic Suppressor also makes you invisible on the mini map when you’re slaying.

For his latest Bruen class, NICKMERCS opts for the The Glitch blueprint variant.

He’s paired his mighty Bruen with a number of other weapons in his classes before, such as the FAL or with a more close-quarters weapon like an MP5.

This usually means Overkill will be on, and he’ll usually use Double Time and Amped to make up for the slower movement speed you get when using an LMG.

A Heartbeat Sensor and a C4 are the tactical and lethal equipment of choice.


The FAL has recently emerged as a popular weapon in Warzone due to its effectiveness at both long and close range. NICKMERCS’ FAL loadout maximises its power and quick fire-rate for a semi-auto rifle. Here’s how he sets it up:

  • 18.0” Ultralight
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Sleight of Hand

The FAL is always great for long range gunfights, but with the Tac Laser and No Stock attachments it’s been optimised for close quarters battles too with its high mobility and improved hip fire accuracy.

For this latest FAL build, NICKMERCS is using the Punchy blueprint.

NICKMERCS runs this FAL in an Overkill class with his famous Bruen Mk9, and has Double Time and Amped as his other perks.

As is usual, he runs a Heartbeat Sensor and C4 as his equipment.


NICKMERCS’ Kilo class sees the AR evolve into more of a heavy-hitting, LMG-style weapon. His latest Kilo setup essentially focuses on it being as accurate and powerful at long distance as possible, at the expense of its mobility. These are the five attachments he uses:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 60 Round Mags

To get that LMG feel, NICKMERCS has jacked up the Kilo’s magazine size and popped on a 3.0x sight to aim at those distant targets. The Monolithic Suppressor – a staple on almost all of NICKMERCS’ classes – is also added.

All these attachments are bolted onto the Cerulean blueprint.

NICKMERCS has run this Kilo both as a Ghost class with a Combat Knife secondary or as an Overkill class with an MP5. E.O.D and Amped make up his other two perks on both.

He takes a C4 and a Heartbeat Sensor for his equipment.


NICKMERCS’ most recent MP5 class absolutely shreds. It’s a fast-shooting close quarters weapon that is almost as accurate at the hip as it is when looking down the sights! Here are the five attachments he has for his MP5:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 45 Round Mags
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand

This MP5 setup is all about dealing as much damage at close range as possible and making sure you hit every shot while doing so. The addition of the Monolithic Suppressor means you can go unnoticed on the mini map and the Sleight of Hand weapon perk allows you to reload quickly if you use every one of your 45 bullets in the mag.

The video below shows this set up on the Spirit of the Beast blueprint, but he’s also run a similar setup on the Milkweed variant.

Perks wise, the MP5 is almost always part of an Overkill class, usually paired up with NICKMERCS’ trusty Bruen. This means Double Time and Amped will usually be the go to perks to help with Bruen movement.

And if you’ve been intently following this guide, then you know what comes next. Heartbeat Sensor and C4 for the equipment? You betcha.


Ah, the trusty M4A1. What would Modern Warfare be without you. NICKMERCS’ latest M4 Warzone loadout is perfect for medium to long distance slaying. These are the five attachments:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Corvus Custom Marksman
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Rubberized Grip Tape
  • 60 Round Mags

This combination of attachments puts the emphasis on accuracy, while also boosting the range. Close range capabilities are not so great with this build, but NICKMERCS usually has a secondary capable of doing that kind of work.

This setup is applied to the Ghostly Recollection M4AI variant.

This M4 was run alongside an MP5, so NICKMERCS’ perks were E.O.D, Overkill, and Amped.

NICKMERCS had the usual Heartbeat Sensor and C4 combo for his equipment.


Members of the MFAM will know by now that sniping isn’t really NICKMERCS’ style. He’s more of a run and gun kinda guy. But he did recently put out a video using a godly Kar98k sniper class and it is definitely a great build for all you headshot-seekers out there. Here’s his attachments for it:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Tac Laser
  • Sniper Scope
  • Stippled Grip Tape

There are a number of plus sides to using a Kar98k like this one instead of your traditional AX-50 or HDR. Firstly, the Sniper Scope NICKMERCS uses is *chef’s kiss* and the combination of attachments see it’s range boosted massively. This thing will rip from pretty much any distance (which is also why it’s favoured by a lot of hackers for cross-mapping people).

The Old Growth blueprint is the base for this build.

As NICKMERCS isn’t much of a sniper, he doesn’t really have a favoured loadout for this Kar98k. However, it’s likely you’ll want to run it as an Overkill class with a mid to close range weapon like an MP5 as a secondary. Amped is a must, but then it’s really the user’s choice whether to take E.O.D. or Double Time.

The staple equipment of a C4 and a Heartbeat sensor are of course part of NICKMERCS’ sniper class.

NICKMERCS’ Warzone loaoduts are some of the most popular and overpowered in the game right now.

The experimental streamer is always looking to create fresh new loadouts to ruin people’s day in Verdansk, so we’ll be sure to update this if he ever cooks up another meta-shifting class.
