Streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has been dominating Warzone with a new MAC-10 build, so here’s how to build it for yourself.

The MAC-10 has been regarded as one of Warzone’s best weapons since it was added at the beginning of Season 1. With a fast fire rate, manageable recoil and high damage output, it’s the go-to choice as most players’ close-quarters weapon.

NICKMERCS has been using the MAC-10 on his loadout for a while now but has built a new one for maximum speed and damage. When running heavy weapons such as LMGs or Snipers, NICKMERCS said “you’ve got to have that speed gun in your pocket so you can fly around the map.”

Pair this SMG with a Bruen Mk9 or Stoner 63 and you won’t be slowed down by the heavy weapon when running, and you’ll also have something to whip out in close-range situations.

Here’s how NICKMERCS built his most powerful Warzone MAC-10 yet.

NICKMERCS’ new MAC-10 Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 5.9″ Task Force
  • Stock: Raider Stock
  • Underbarrel: Patrol Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 53 Rnd Drum

NICKMERCS based this MAC-10 on what competitive Warzone players have been running in tournaments but made some adjustments for extra speed.

The meta attachments that Nick kept on the MAC-10 are the Agency Suppressor, Task Force barrel, and 53 Round Drum magazine.

The Agency Suppressor is necessary when running most Black Ops Cold War weapons in Warzone. It keeps you hidden from the minimap allowing for stealthy flanks and hiding you from third parties, while also increasing the gun’s range.

The Task Force barrel further increases the MAC’s power over distance, allowing it to output more damage, hit harder at range and be more accurate with increased bullet velocity. And finally, the 53 Rnd Drum allows you to down and finish multiple enemies before having to reload.

The attachments NICKMERCS added for speed are the Raider Stock and Patrol Grip. The stock increases your sprint-to-fire time and aim walking movement speed. You’ll be able to quickly raise your gun after sprinting and easily strafe-shoot, making yourself hard to hit in a firefight.

The Patrol Grip allows you to sprint faster when carrying the MAC-10, allowing you to quickly push enemies or rotate into the next circle without being encumbered by a heavy primary weapon.

Using this MAC-10 paired with a Stoner 63, NICKMERCS dropped 19 kills with 7,000 damage “while eating and not even locked in.”
