The AUG may not be the go-to weapon in Warzone anymore, but with the upcoming Grau nerf, it could see a lot more play in both Modern Warfare’s battle royale and multiplayer modes. Here, we break down two of the strongest AUG loadouts you should be using.

While the Grau is currently dominating the current Call of Duty weapon meta, this incredibly precise SMG delivers consistent damage across a variety of ranges. The AUG absolutely crushed foes during Season 2, mostly thanks to its large clip size, accurate firing pattern, low recoil, and high damage. 

With the assault rifle class still remaining the top pick for their overall accuracy and range, it’s not at all surprising then that the AUG continues to be such a popular pick – after all, this SMG dishes out plenty of damage in both close-quarters skirmishes and medium-range gunfights. In order to help you get the most out of the AUG, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to gain a competitive edge over your foes.

This loadout is all about boosting the AUG’s range damage.
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • 407mm Extended Barrel 
  • Integral Hybrid 
  • Forge TAC CQB Comb
  • 5.56 NATO 60-Round Drums

Both medium and long-range firefights are incredibly common in Verdansk, particularly in early-game rounds when the majority of the map is still safe from the clutches of the gas circle. As a result, you’ll want to pick a loadout that can reliably drop enemies at a distance and still give you a fighting chance in any scrappy close-quarters fights. 

This loadout is tailored around pushing the AUG’s effective range to its very limits, while also giving you enough damage to stop enemy squads dead in their tracks. The first two attachments on the list are the Monolithic Suppressor and 407mm Extended Barrel.

These two attachments not only drastically increase your effective damage range, they also reduce the AUG’s punchy recoil and speed up its bullet travel time. Of course, this does come with a major downside as your ADS speed will decrease. While the Forge TAC CQB Comb slightly alleviates this issue, it’s often best to begin aiming down the AUG’s sight early on to avoid any frustrating deaths. 

The Integral Hybrid allows you to effortlessly switch between both Reflex and 3.25x Scout sights, giving you the accuracy needed to secure those game-winning headshots. It’s important to remember that this SMG performs more like an assault rifle, so try to use it like one when you’re gunning for those ranged kills. 

Rounding things off is the 5.56 NATO 60-Round Drums. Those of you that have played a lot of Warzone will know just how important it is to have plenty of ammo, especially when you need to take down multiple armored targets. This 60-round drum is a must for any player that’s aiming to rack up a high amount of kills and secure those satisfying squad wipes.

The AUG absolutely shreds through opponents in close-quarter battles with this build.
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Forge TAC CQB Comb
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 5.56 NATO 30-Round Drums
  • Stippled Grip Tape

Unlike Modern Warfare’s Warzone mode, the majority of the game’s standard multiplayer maps favor close-quarter to medium engagement ranges. As a result, this loadout is tailored around this aspect of play. Both the Monolithic Suppressor and Forge TAC CQB Comb remain equipped thanks to their overall effectiveness, but everything else has been swapped out. 

The Commando Foregrip is a staple pick for the majority of guns thanks to its superior recoil stabilization and general aiming stability, making it very easy to beam opponents with highly-accurate rounds to the head and chest. 

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve removed the Integral Hybrid optic to further decrease the ADS time, while enhancing this further with the Stippled Grip Tape. Not only does this attachment drastically decrease ADS time, it also lowers the sprint to fire speed.

Lastly, the 5.56 NATO 30-Round Drums help to buff the AUG’s damage output, giving it increased range without the cost to the gun’s ADS and overall mobility.

While the AUG may not be as powerful as the MP5 or Fennec, these setups will certainly allow you to net yourself plenty of kills in both Warzone and Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer modes.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
