The first content creators to get their own CoD skins
In recent years, Call of Duty has embraced crossover event skins. Thus far, the licensed skins have mainly been for celebrities (like Kevin Durant) or fictional characters (like Attack on Titan). But that is all changing with the first ever Call of Duty content creators getting their own skins in-game, including both NickMercs and TimTheTatman alike.

For anyone who is a massive fan of Nicholas “NickMercs” Kolcheff, it is understandable given his massive following of millions of fans and his co-ownership of esports organization FaZe Clan. He is the first CoD content creator to get his own in-game skin as part of a bundle.
The NickMercs MW2 and Warzone 2 skin is a Spartan-style skin where it shows a lookalike version of him wearing stunning red and black armor. This skin is part of a special MFAM operator bundle that comes with his skin plus a bunch of other goodies.
There is a themed weapon blueprint, too, that includes a sleek red and black aesthetic that matches the Spartan operator skin. Anyone wanting to dress up and blast opponents looking like NickMercs will have to wait until the bundle drops.
The MFAM bundle will release on May 31, 2023. It’s likely it will only stick around for a short time, so grab it if you’re interested. The price is currently unknown, and it is uncertain if it will cost CoD Points or real-world currency. Either way, it is likely that it will follow in the footsteps of similar bundles like the Kevin Durant pack that costs 2,400 CoD Points.

NickMercs is not the only CoD content creator to receive a tie-in MW2 and Warzone 2 skin. TimTheTatman was previously teased to have his own skin, courtesy of a possible joke tweet from Raven Software from 2022.
Originally, Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar was supposed to receive a skin on his birthday, April 8, 2022. Fortunately, it is now coming out more than year later on the same day as NickMercs’ skin on May 31, 2023.
Once again, there are currently no details on how much the bundle will cost but we know a bit about the contents of it. It includes a TimTheTatman operator skin that looks quite a lot like the streamer personality, but with an added set of armor.
In addition, there appears to be not one but two weapon blueprints as well, with a white and black color scheme filled with tats all across the side of each weapon.
