Nick “Nickmercs” Kolchef gained popularity in the Fortnite community due to his veteran status behind the sticks. The Michigan native was previously known for playing competitive Gears of War and Call of Duty, two of the biggest console esports in the world.

Nick even has his own custom controller from SCUF Gaming that’s covered in his logo and brand colors of gold and red. He uses a SCUF Infinity Pro with the Nickmercs skin.

The 29-year-old content creator is a part of FaZe Clan and can be seen streaming on Twitch alongside some of the biggest names in Fortnite, like Nate Hill and Ali “SypherPK” Hassan.
