Nickmercs Analysis

Nickmercs is unique in a number of ways. Whether it’s his ability to manage a gym routine while also streaming very frequently, or it’s his dedication to the PS4 controller. No matter where you look, you’ll find something unique about Nickmercs.

Making sure his sensitivity settings for Building and Editing are almost at max, Nickmercs almost ensures a quick and exciting match every time. And when it comes to his controller, Nickmercs likes to ensure victory by keeping the controls as similar between the 3 modes as possible.

 When it comes to uniqueness however, there is little that can be done in the realm of Fortnite with settings. Pushing the view distance all the way, utilizing the aim assist with his controller, and having the FX volume relatively low are the only things that Nickmercs brings to shake things up, as far as settings are concerned.

Unfortutnely, there is little known about what camera or microphone Nickmercs uses for his streams, but we do know what he has hidden away in his NZXT H700i case, and it’s quick the machine. This beast allows for Nickmercs to rack up 34,000+ games and stream for hours without issue. If you’re wanting to catch the unique streamer and all he does, make sure to follow his Twitter and Twitch.

Nickmercs’ Bio

Nick is a witty Scorpio who was born in Michigan. He became obsessed with gaming as a teenager. His dad was even concerned he might be a video game addict. Nick was super athletic as a kid and still is a bodybuilder. But, in middle school, he would sometimes be up to four or five in the morning gaming.

His dad even went to the length of destroying his Xbox at one point. But, all that late night and early morning gaming paid off into a 7 figure career online. Even though he wasn’t very well-rested, he graduated from high school and went on to achieve a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan.

Keeping in top physical shape has always been a driving motivation. While maintaining a hectic streaming schedule he finds the time to hit the gym and maintain his bodybuilder physique as well. The buff player started his YouTube and Twitch accounts way back in 2011. He cut his teeth on streaming Call of Duty and Gears of War. He could even be found playing Uno and Monopoly online.

His career took flight after the launch of Fortnite. Once he claimed that kill record in 2018 his viewership and followers skyrocketed. Nick now boasts close to 3 million followers on Twitch and his YouTube channel sits at an impressive 1,924,457 subscribers as of August 2019. He also boasts 6-figure annual earnings and sponsorships from major brands. Nick is an entertaining streamer and is an MLG National Champion.
