The Best AUG Class Cold War: AUG Loadout Guide [Season 6]

Being a Veteran in Cold War, I recommend the fallowing AUG loadout.

Ever since season 6 kicked in, the multiplayer lobbies of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War are swarmed by players running with SMGs. Many of these guns, which previously were nerfed, received adequate balancing in season 6. However, not everyone realizes the potential a tactical rifle, like AUG, can have in the field.

My best AUG class cold war loadout guide entails how players can dominate the fights using this weapon. I curated season 6 MP5 and AK74u sub-machine gun loadouts to dominate fights in COD Black Ops Cold War.

Key Takeaways
  • The AUG is a tactical rifle that is best suited for medium to long-range engagements.
  • The attachments will improve the AUG’s damage range, recoil control, magazine size, and ADS speed.
  • The AUG can also be equipped with the following perks:
  • Flak Jacket: Reduces explosive damage.
  • Scavenger: Resupplies ammunition from fallen enemies.
  • Ninja: Silences your footsteps.
  • The AUG can be used in a variety of game modes, but it is particularly effective in Domination, Hardpoint, and Search and Destroy.

Best Attachments For AUG Loadout

As a tactical rifle, AUG has made a comeback in season 6, but only if you use the right attachments that go hand in hand with each other. This weapon is a miles better weapon in Season 6 as compared to the previous one.

However, even though AUG is a tactical rifle and is not an SMG per se, its rate of fire, RPM, and overall damage, in many ways, is much better than MP5 and AK74u. This may have to do with AUG’s 3-round burst firing system that allows this weapon to take out targets in max two bursts if you slot in the right attachments.

For attachments, I recommend the following options.

  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 19.8’’ Task Force
  • Body: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Stock: Raider Pad
  • Faster TTK
  • Silenced on Radar
  • Improved Stability
  • Favors hip-fire shots
  • Better Recoil Control
  • Limited Range
  • Reduced ADS speed to some extent

Secondary Weapon Loadout

For the secondary weapon, I recommend going with Tiny Comrade or Sunburst. The reason for putting two suggestions instead of one is that the former is a blueprint and must be bought before using, and the latter weapon can be unlocked by progressing in the game.

So, if you have already bought the Tiny Comrade, you must go with it; otherwise, the Sunburst is an excellent secondary weapon you should go with while creating AUG season 6 loadout. Here are the attachments for Sunburst weapon.

With AUG, I use the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: Sound Suppressor
  • Barrel: 2” Reinforced Heavy
  • Body: SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • Magazine: Salve 30 RND Fast Mag
  • Stock: Dual Wield

When it comes to the weapon’s base stats, AUG does not impress in the field or on paper. The weapon has 54 base damage and comes with a base magazine of 30 rounds. Other than that, AUG has 857 RPM (rounds-per-minute), and a 2.7 magazine reload time, regardless of how empty the mag is.

Best Perks & Wildcard

For Aug, you can go for the Gunfighter Wildcard because this is the only Wildcard that allows players to equip more weapon attachments instead of the standard five.

Other than that, here are three perks you should go with while creating the best AUG class Cold War loadout. All three perks go hand in hand and therefore provide an edge while taking the fight head-on in the field.

Here are my recommended Perks options:

  • Tactical Mask
  • Scavenger
  • Ghost

Under the Perk 1 tab, I recommend picking up the Tactical Mask. Equipping this perk allows you to have significant resistance build-up towards the blinding and stunning effects caused by the tactical grenades. This is pretty much the useful perk out of three perks that you will need to equip.

Scavenger is an excellent perk for this loadout’ your character will get back some amount of ammo from the fallen players after equipping this perk.

From the Perk 3 tab, the Ghost is a befitting perk that goes well with the AUG season 6 loadout. The perk allows the player to remain invisible from the enemy’s radar and Spy plane. This increases survivability significantly and allows you to take out enemies by surprise since you’d be invisible on the radar.

Best Equipment

Besides picking the best perks for AUG season 6 loadout, you must also get the equipment that synergizes with the overall class setup. So, on that front, I have suggested the best equipment you should go with while running the above-mentioned loadout.

  • Stimshot
  • Semtex
  • Trophy System

Stimshot is the most useful equipment I recommend equipping for the AUG season 6 loadout. It allows the player to kick in the healing process and replenish the lost health faster within a few seconds.

Semtex is the perfect explosive device that a) does relatively decent damage than most explosives and b) detonates whenever an enemy comes into its proximity. 

The Trophy System is an excellent pick for the field upgrade as it can disable an enemy’s thrown equipment towards you. Also, it works in a 10-meter radius which is a decent range for a field upgrade that can defend you and increase the overall survivability.

My Take ON AUG 

The AUG season 6 loadout that I have suggested does not favor a run-and-gun playstyle. You still can do it, but the end results will not be satisfactory as you may get eliminated more than others. In order to not disrupt the balance of K/D, you must go with the playstyle I suggest for the AUG tactical rifle.

Since the AUG tactical rifle is the center of attention for this loadout, I have mentioned tried and tested attachments for the weapon. By equipping the weapon attachments mentioned, you will be taking out targets in at least two bursts of rounds should the bullets hit the chest, shoulder, or head region.

That is pretty much everything you need to know about the best AUG class Cold War. Which is your go-to primary weapon in season 6? If it is AUG, then do you find the season 6 AUG loadout useful?
