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. The easy to control recoil on the CW AUG is fantastic as the bullets tend to stick close together, making it easy to take out enemies within only a few bursts.
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.
BEST COLD WAR AUG WARZONE LOADOUT
The best Cold War AUG Warzone attachments are:
- Muzzle Brake 5.56
- 17” Titanium
- Field Agent Foregrip
- Agency Silencer
- 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 Muzzle Brake 5.56 which increases the weapon’s vertical recoil control. The recoil pattern for this weapon tilts upwards, so the extra vertical recoil control is going to be extremely helpful.
The CW AUG excels at long distances, but the bullet velocity is far too slow to be used from range. By equipping the 17” Titanium barrel, we can increase the weapon’s bullet velocity at the expense of the effective damage range. This is a worthwhile trade as the CW AUG was unable to take full advantage of the damage range before, whereas this attachment now gives the weapon a fighting chance.
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 Agency Silencer continues to improve the CW AUG’s damage range, and also includes sound suppression which can be useful in Warzone. There is a slight drop off to the gun’s aim down sight speed, but the increased damage range is far too good to ignore. 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.
Best MODERN WARFARE AUG Warzone setup
The best Modern Warfare AUG Warzone attachments are:
- Monolithic Suppressor
- 407mm Lightweight
- FORGE TAC CQB Comb
- 5.56 NATO 30-Round Mags
- Stippled Grip Tape
You’ll see a lot of people running the 60-Round Drums and some even using a Long Barrel as well, but we find that these attachments add far too much weight to the gun and make it almost unusable in close-quarters battles. Our build actually reduces the weapon’s aim down sight speed while massively increasing its damage and range.
The suppressor will keep you off any radars, and while you may need to think a bit more about when you reload, 30 rounds is still enough to chew through an entire squad solo if you hit your shots.
The meta has moved on from the AUG over time, but this SMG still shreds. If you’re after something for super close range fights then check out our guide to the best Streetsweeper shotgun loadout, FFAR 1 loadout, or the best Diamatti loadout in Warzone for some other options.
