Who is Nickmercs?

Nicholas Kolcheff, better known as Nickmercs is an American professional gamer, streamer, and content creator. 

Nicholas began his career as a professional Gears of War player who had numerous confrontations with Ninja due to trash talking. Following his success in Gears of War, he started streaming in 2010 and created a YouTube channel in 2011. At that time his content mostly revolved around Call of Duty and Outlast.  

In 2018, he became a content creator for the organization known as 100 Thieves and streamed battle royale games such as Fortnite. A year later, in 2019, he left 100 Thieves and soon after joined the FaZe Clan. 

Today, Nickmercs is a well-known name within the gaming community and his Twitch channel has gained more than 6.5 million followers.

Nickmercs Apex Legends Settings

Apex Legends is a game that offers players many customization options which they can use to tailor the gameplay experience to their personal preferences, however, with so many options, players can easily find themselves overwhelmed. This is why it may be easier to copy the settings from one of the pros and then tailor them to your personal needs from there. 

Nickmercs Gameplay Settings

Nickmercs’ gameplay settings are highly customized to fit his preferences and right off the bat we can see that he has his Interact Prompt Style set to “Compact”. This greatly reduces the displayed item information and reduces visual clutter. A very common choice among professional players.  Besides that, most of his options are turned on, and he has his Jetpack Control set to “Toggle” which is not as common among professionals compared to the previous setting we mentioned.
