Since the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the AUG has often reigned supreme in multiplayer. While some nerfs have arrived in an attempt to knock it off its throne, this tactical rifle is still powerful. It’s also dominated the meta in Warzone with the right loadout, but this article is going to focus solely on the Black Ops Cold War AUG.
As such, the loadout is going to differ from the one that most Warzone players equip. Instead of going for buffs in multiple areas, the Cold War loadout for the AUG is honing in on damage boosts, mobility increases and stealth.
Best AUG loadout in Black Ops Cold War
The top loadout for the AUG in multiplayer hasn’t changed much since November. The gun has seen some nerfs but nothing that significant to switch out key attachments. So if players ran with an AUG loadout in pre-season 1 of multiplayer, the same loadout will likely be just as deadly.
However, as we move into season 3 of Black Ops Cold War, here’s what we feel is the best AUG loadout.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppresor
- Optic: Visiontech 2x
- Barrel: 19.6″ Match Grade
- Magazine: 45 RND Drum
- Stock: SAS Combat Stock
The biggest buff this loadout offers is its damage, which is increased by the 19.6″ Match Grade barrel. While the bullet velocity is lowered, that’s not much of an issue when the AUG can one-burst enemies. This one-bursting is also silent thanks to the Agency Suppressor, which also offers enough recoil reduction to warrant the absence of the Field Agent Grip.
As for the rest of the loadout, the 45 RND Drum is key to ensure accuracy doesn’t need to be perfect. Following that up is the SAS Combat Stock, which allows players to strafe much more efficiently.
Finally, the Visiontech 2x scope is more personal preference. Having said that, it does provide a solid amount of zoom for both medium and long-range gunfights.
