The best AUG Warzone setup

Find out what the best attachments are for the Cold War AUG and the Modern Warfare AUG

The stock version of the AUG SMG in Call of Duty Warzone's preview menu

Searching for the best AUG Warzone setup? Now that all of the Call of Duty Cold War guns have made their way to the battle royale game, you have the choice between two very different AUGs. The Modern Warfare AUG is an SMG with an excellent fire rate, capable of killing enemies faster than some of the best assault rifles in Warzone.

Unlocking all of the attachments for this SMG will take a while, but you can transform this weapon into a mid-range monster with the correct loadout. There’s also the Cold War AUG, a semi-automatic tactical rifle that fires in bursts of three. This variation of the AUG focuses on taking down enemies from a distance, allowing you to have the accuracy of a sniper combined with the mobility of an assault rifle.

Our AUG Warzone build guide covers both of these weapons to ensure you have the best AUG Warzone loadout possible. The MW AUG should be used as a secondary weapon in loadouts, whereas you may want to use the CW AUG as a primary weapon due to its long range capabilities. Many players in Warzone Season 5 Reloaded have been using the Modern Warfare AUG because of its impressive time to kill speeds.

Best MODERN WARFARE AUG Warzone setup

The best Modern Warfare AUG Warzone attachments are:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Tac Laser
  • 5.56 NATO 60-Round Mags
  • Stippled Grip Tape

For the muzzle attachment, we’ve gone for the classic Monolithic Suppressor which improves the AUG’s damage range. It also adds sound suppression, perfect for keeping you off the radar when firing at enemies – this is particularly useful in the later stages of the game when players typically prefer to hide from each other.

The Tac Laser is a no brainer attachment as it improves our aim down sight speed, aiming walking steadiness, and aiming stability. Likewise, the FORGE TAC CQB Comb also enhances our aim down sight speed, albeit at the cost of some aiming stability.

As for the magazines, we’ve gone for the larger 5.56 NATO 60-Round Mags. There is an argument for the smaller 30-Round magazines, but we feel slightly worse mobility makes up for having twice the amount of bullets per clip. Finally, the Stippled Grip Tape improves the aim down sight speed on this SMG once again, making it dead simple to eliminate your targets.

The AUG in Call of Duty: Warzone


The best Cold War AUG Warzone attachments are:

  • Agency Silencer
  • 18.2” Strike Team
  • Field Agent Foregrip
  • 45 Rnd Speed Mag
  • Axial Arms 3x

One powerful aspect of the CW AUG is the lack of any damage drop off when targeting enemy limbs. This can be useful when firing from a distance as you most likely won’t be looking for headshots at long range. To take advantage of this ability, we’ve gone for the Agency Silencer which increases the weapon’s vertical recoil control and speeds up the bullet velocity. The recoil pattern for this weapon tilts upwards, so the extra vertical recoil control is going to be extremely helpful.

The 18.2” Strike Team barrel gives the CW AUG faster fire rate at the slight expense of effective damage range. To further increase this weapon’s accuracy, the Field Agent Foregrip improves both the vertical and horizon recoil control which will drastically improve any shots from long range. Fortunately, this only comes at the cost of the weapon’s shooting move speed, which is irrelevant for a tactical rifle. The nerf to the CW AUG affects shots after the second burst, but this shouldn’t be noticeable to accurate players as the weapon can down enemies using just two bursts.

As for the magazine, we’ve gone for the 45 Rnd Speed Mag as this shortens the weapon’s reload speeds while giving the gun more bullets than the stock magazines. Finally, the Axial Arms 3x lines up perfectly with the rest of the attachments as it allows the weapon to be used at medium to long distances with ease.
