Quotes by NickMercs
“Unfortunately without anti-cheat, authentic Warzone tournaments just aren’t possible anymore. We learned a lot from those Gauntlets & I’ve been tellin’ y’all. There’s too much cheese & way too many rats. Bob & weave baby.”
“I have that ‘it’s never good enough’ mentality. It’s a blessing & a curse.”
Awards & Nominations

The Game Awards 2020 – Content Creator of the Year
10th Streamy Awards 2020 – Live Streamer – Won
He was joined by Matthew “Nadeshot&” The Hague’s organization 100 Thieves as a content creator. The biggest increase in popularity came when he broke the killing record in Fortnite, at 54. That record was later surpassed, but Nickmercs won his first Fortnight Friday with SypherPK and earned $2,500.
It is easily recognized by the aggressive way of playing. He earned over $130,000 on Fortnite prizes. He first had a rivalry with Aydan, but now they often team up and collaborate. In May 2019, he separated from 100 Thieves, and later that month joined the FaZe Clan.
He stayed on Twitch and earned 67,000 viewers there, and in 2019 he earned $6 million and that year was in tenth place with the highest-earning players. Of course he didn’t keep the full sum and took a percentage of that profit, otherwise his current net worth would be much higher.
