Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has come back to stream Warzone regularly and he has some opinions on the new weapon meta and how Modern Warfare weapons fit into the equation.
Warzone Season 4 Reloaded arrived on July 27 and the weapon meta took a major turn as a result.
Some of the weapons that were the reigning champions entering Season 4 have now taken a big hit and are being replaced by the much older Modern Warfare options thanks to a targeted push by the developers.
While it’s still too early, streamers like Kolcheff seem to be tackling the change in a significant way.
Nickmercs thinks Warzone is at its best with Modern Warfare weapons leading the way
In a July 28 video on his channel, Nick and fellow streamers Cloakzy and TimTheTatman discussed the state of Warzone’s meta following the Season 4 Reloaded update.
When he asked his friends what weapons they were using after the long list of buffs arrived, they explained that NZ-41 has taken a backseat to the classic Kilo-141 gear that dominated in Verdansk, and Tim said it’s his favorite Warzone was meta once.
Nick also supported that statement by saying that Warzone’s Kilo, Grau, and Bruen days were “f***ing lit” and agreed with Cloakzy, who suggested the game is most fun when the original Modern Warfare -weapons the meta are choices.
Tim also said that it’s not just the Kilo that feels good after the update, but also all the MW weapons in the patch notes: “They completely buffed them out…”
There’s still plenty of time for a big shake-up, but the Kilo seems to be the weapon that will pave the way through much of S4 Reloaded.
