With an increase in GA'd attachments and nerfs to weapons, players are turning to the AUG as their leading SMG.

18:00, 07 Jul 2020

The weapon meta for the Call of Duty League is an experimental playground at the moment. With just three championships left, the Gentleman's Agreement has banned any form of ammunition attachments such as the 10mm rounds for the Mp5 and the .41 AE 32-Round Mags for the Uzi, leaving players scratching their heads at which SMG is the best to use. It may have dropped the quality somewhat, however, the essence of uncertainty and experiment has led to a much more competitive SMG meta which is ultimately much more fun to watch. Up there to replace the Mp5, which has ruled from day one, is the AUG. Without further ado, here's the best AUG competitive classes and attachments, followed by the best AUG Warzone Loadout.

The best Competitive AUG Class for the CDL

The AUG has the best time-to-kill rate than any base SMG, making it a grand choice for close-quarters combat, allowing aggressive hill players to laser opponents. It has previously never have been able to deal the same damage as the Uzi and Mp5 with the added ammo attachments, however, now they're GA'd, the AUG leads the way again in damage and fire rate. Its downside may lie in its mobility and range, but if you can tame its recoil you can easily map opponents. With this best competitive AUG class, you will be able to ridicule the doubters and become the king of the hill, as long as you carry a trophy system.

  • Muzzle – Compensator
  • Barrel – 407mm Extended Barrel
  • Underbarrel – Ranger Foregrip
  • Stock - FORGE TAC CQB Comb
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape

Both the Compensator and Ranger Foregrip will help you tame it's recoil and make it extremely accurate, whilst the Stippled Grip Tape and FORGE TAC CQB Comb stock will increase your aim down sight speed, allowing you to accurately snap on to opponents and shred up close. The 407mm Extended Barrel will increase your range without taking away much of your mobility, allowing you to get kills at distance, perfect for an anchor rotating in Hardpoint, or to pick someone off a head glitch in SnD. If you wanted to experiment, an optic may be suitable for the AUG too; a simple Red Dot sight (G.I. Mini Reflex) could replace the stock if you don't like the iron sights. This best competitive AUG class will feature at the New York Home Series, and you will definitely reap the rewards of using it.

The best AUG Class attachments for Multiplayer

The fundamentals of the competitive class will remain here, however, in multiplayer you can use attachments that the pros have banned between themselves. Here's the best AUG class attachments for multiplayer.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – 407mm Extended Barrel
  • Underbarrel – Merc Foregrip
  • Stock - FORGE TAC CQB Comb
  • Rear Grip – Stippled Grip Tape

The rear grip, stock and barrel attachments remain the same here, however, the Compensator is swapped out for Monolithic Suppressor to keep you off the minimap and add to your range. Furthermore, Merc Foregrip will prove a better choice than the Ranger, increasing your hip-fire accuracy which is key in multiplayer. These best AUG class attachments for multiplayer will assist you in racking up killstreaks and dominate public matches.

The Best AUG Warzone Loadout

In Warzone you will want to increase your range and aiming stability at the expense of your mobility up close. It is likely that your SMG confrontations here will be at slightly longer distances than in multiplayer, and you'll have to remain accurate for longer as you rip through armour plates. Here are the best attachments for your AUG Warzone Loadout.

  • Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel – 622mm Long Barrel
  • Underbarrel – Merc Foregrip
  • Stock - FSS Heavy Stok Pro
  • Rear Grip – Granulated Grip Tape

Contrary to other SMGs in Warzone, the Merc Foregrip will benefit you with the AUG to help you get those first bullets in and remain accurate before the recoil kicks in. The Long Barrel and Heavy Stock will also help in this respects, letting you tear through opponents at range before dipping out to reload. Again, unlike other SMGs in Warzone, an ammunition round isn't too necessary as its reloading time is very short anyway and you will deal so much damage in short periods of time, you should be able to down a couple of players per clip. Granulated Grip Tape comes in over Stippled, to further increase your accuracy and aiming stability. Again, and optic could be used over the stock or grip tape, but it is unlikely that you will need one. These attachments will make for the best AUG Warzone Loadout.
