The latest Call of Duty: Warzone meta may feature two strong Assault Rifles, but there is a third weapon in the class that is worth trying out. As shown by NICKMERCS, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s AK-47 is finally a gun worth using inside Call of Duty: Warzone.
Shortly after Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launched, there was a gentlemen’s agreement between pro players to ban the AK-47 from competitive play. Despite all this controversy, the gun has never been dominant in Call of Duty: Warzone. Because of this, NICKMERCS says he has “never used the gun on [his] channel,” citing the lack of distance, average damage, and “crazy amount of recoil” as his reasons for avoiding the weapon. However, that has since changed.
Call of Duty: Warzone’s latest update was heavily praised for several reasons, some of which include the nerfs to the FFAR and the fix for the Roze skin. However, the buffs were just as effective, as the Krig 6 has gone from an unused gun to being completely meta. The same can be said for the AK-47, as the “recoil is not as bad” according to NICKMERCS. The range and damage are also far better, and the professional player uses these changes to create an AK-47 loadout that makes it function like a submachine gun.
With NICKMERCS claiming that this build is better than most of the SMGs currently available in the battle royale game, fans of close-range gameplay should give it a try. According to the partial owner of FaZe, the 15.5” Ultralight barrel will be a must for this SMG-like build. Speeding up strafe speed, this attachment is a must for those that like to make quick movements. The KGB Skeletal Stock gives another speed-related boost, with ADS firing speed, aim walking speed, and sprint to fire time all being boosted by the attachment.
While it originally launched with just Gen 1 Pokemon from the Kanto region, Pokemon GO has since greatly expanded its roster of available Pokemon. Recently, Gen 6 Pokemon have been added to the popular augmented reality mobile game, and it seems even more Gen 6 Pokemon are on the way soon. Niantic has been cryptically teasing the addition of new Gen 6 Pokemon to Pokemon GO, pointing out two Pokemon in particular.
Niantic has tweeted out Pokedex entries for two Gen 6 Pokemon that will presumably be coming to Pokemon GO in an upcoming update. A specific release date wasn't provided, but the tweets suggest that the Dragon-type Pokemon Goomy and the Fairy-type Pokemon Swirlix will be added to Pokemon GO sooner rather than later. Presumably, these Pokemon will come with their evolutions as well, but that has yet to be confirmed.
This strong NICKMERCS loadout also features the 45 Rnd magazine, something that is hardly a surprise due to how often he equips larger mags in his builds. However, with the AK-47 having solid iron sights, the pro player skips out on the staple Axial Arms 3x optic. Instead, he uses two grips, with the Spetsnaz Speedgrip and Serpent Wrap both attached to the small AK-47. The former boosts sprint speed and lowers horizontal recoil, while the former boosts ADS time. With this setup entirely focused on speed, these attachments are essential.
While NICKMERCS is honest about the weapon being outclassed by a few SMGs and the FARA 83 Assault Rifle, he does believe that the AK-47 is perfectly viable now. Overall, the game’s new meta seems to be far less frustrating than the past few, giving Call of Duty: Warzone fans a break from truly overpowered guns.
