NICKMERCS reveals one change to make Warzone MAC-10 class even stronger

Streamer NICKMERCS is known for his Warzone loadout videos uploaded to YouTube, and he’s figured out how to make the already strong MAC-10 even better.

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff found great success with Warzone when it launched in March 2020. He turned out high kills game after game, won tournaments, and perhaps became infamous for popularizing the Bruen MK9 meta which took over Verdansk in Modern Warfare Seasons 4 and 5.

The MAC-10 dominated close-range combat for the first few weeks of Warzone Season 1, with an insanely fast time-to-kill and minimal recoil. It then turned out that the Gallantry Blueprint unlocked through the premium Battle Pass was ‘pay-to-win,’ with it dealing over 30% more damage than its base version.

The MAC-10 has received a slight nerf, and the Gallantry Blueprint now functions as intended, but this BOCW SMG remains the perfect pocket weapon. NICKMERCS has found an attachment you should run to make the MAC-10 even better.

NICKMERCS’ new MAC-10 loadout

After NICKMERCS dominated with the MAC-10, his chat asked him what attachments he was using, so he decided to make a video. While this SMG is already fast, Nick wanted it faster, so he swapped out the popular 53 Round Drum for the Salvo 53 Round Fast Mag.

This magazine allows you to reload even quicker, with no negatives compared to its drum variant. It does increase the overall ADS time of the MAC-10, but the rest of Nick’s attachments compensate for that.

Here’s Nick’s full MAC-10 loadout.

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

NICKMERCS’ MAC-10 is decked out for speed, with the Wire Stock and Patrol Grip prioritizes moving fast and being the first to have your gun up in a fight.

For extra recoil control, Nick also opted for the Muzzle Break 9 instead of the Agency Suppressor, which a lot of players favor. You’ll show on the minimap when firing, but with the TTK on this SMG, that shouldn’t be a problem.
