Nickmercs reveals ‘broken’ Mac 10 Warzone Loadout

Nicholas Sakadelis

Streamer Nickmercs shows us his Mac 10 update for Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War Warzone.

In a video on YouTube, Nickmercs talks about the newest and best SMG in Warzone, the Mac 10.

Previously, high-tier players flocked to the MP5 due to its impressive damage even at medium distances. Still, it seems the Mac 10 kills much faster than the MP5 and even punishes shotgun players up close if they slightly miss their shots.

When talking about the Mac 10, Nickmercs states, “It’s the best gun in the new Season of Warzone, without a doubt. Don’t worry about other opinions, don’t worry about comments, trust me. This thing is broken, it’s overpowered, it’s unbelievable.”

Here’s his weapon setup:

  • Muzzle: Muzzle Break 9 – Additional vertical recoil control for up close engagements.
  • Barrel: 5.3″ Extended – Added bullet velocity for additional range.
  • Stock: Wire Stock – Decreased sprint to fire time so you’re ready for any gunfight in an instant. Especially helpful when fighting other SMG players.
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip – Extra sprinting move speed. Juke out and strafe opponents.
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Round Drum – 53 round magazine so even if you miss a few shots, you’ll have plenty more. Turns the Mac 10 into a bullet hose.

In some of the clips Nickmercs shows in his YouTube video (below), he takes out up to three enemies with just a single magazine in an instant.

The Mac 10 obliterates opponents and gives them no chance to react. He even beats out an enemy using the R9-0 Dragons Breath Shotgun (nicknamed the “Doof Doof”).

Nickmercs compared the weapon to the Skorpion SMG from Black Ops 2, stating, “It has that old school Black Ops 2 Skorpion-like feel… but the Skorpion was really, really good, if not the best, close-range SMG in Black Ops 2. That’s what this gun feels like.”

He also added that even at a bit of a distance, if you’re a talented player, it doesn’t kick much either.

We’ve tried the weapon in Warzone ourselves and agree with Nickmercs. This is the SMG to trade the MP5 out for.
