Who is Nickmercs?
Nicholas “Nickmercs” Kolcheff is a Youtuber and Twitch streamer from the USA. The games he’s most known for playing are Call of Duty and Fortnite, although these days he seems to be making a move into Apex Legends.
When Nickmercs first got into video games in 2005, having a career playing them wasn’t quite plausible just yet. He decided to start community college, but midway through it decided that he wanted to join the navy. He started training to become a Navy SEAL but wasn’t quite able to complete training as he would panic during the underwater training.
After his brief stint in the Navy, Nickmercs went back to college, where a friend of his told him about how gaming streams had started becoming a thing. He started streaming and grew exponentially, and eventually started playing professionally in the esports scenes for various games like Gears of War 2 and Fortnite.
