YouTube channel Daily Clips Central covered the Victory Royale’s highlights in a video.

Nickmercs enjoyed the game and was overwhelmed every time he won a gunfight. Hence, it is safe to assume this is a new beginning for the streamer and fans might see him playing Fortnite more often.

“More to come, FNCS, all that, lock me in. Appreciate the love today.” 

One of the biggest reasons that Nickmercs loved his comeback was fellow streamer SypherPK. Both the streamers make up for one of the most popular Fortnite duos ever, and they might team up again for the upcoming Fortnite Championship Series.

How does the return of content creators affect Fortnite’s future?

Moreover, SBMM has made the game too sweaty for some, and streamers could not enjoy the game while making content simultaneously. As a result, many people started claiming that ‘Fortnite is a dead game’. However, recent developments tell a different story.
