The removal of FaZe NICKMERCS’ operator skin bundle from Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 sparked significant controversy within the gaming community. Call of Duty hasn’t commented further since their initial response, stating they removed the bundle due to “recent events” and are now focused on celebrating Pride month. Fans boycott the game in protest and hashtags trend.
In his tweet, NICKMERCS wrote, “Friends are created in good times, but families are built through adversity. Appreciate all of you that have my back, understand my position as a new father, and recognize the love I have for all. Ain’t no hate in this heart.”
It remains uncertain whether NICKMERCS is actively seeking to have his skin bundle reinstated or when he will resume streaming. The overwhelming support from streamers and the backlash against Activision’s decision leave room for speculation on the future of the franchise and its operator skins.
