Black Ops Cold War’s AUG has become a popular pick among Warzone players, but what’s actually the best loadout in terms of damage? Well, it’s actually a pretty simple setup. 

Ever since Warzone first launched, players have been scrambling to put together the best loadouts possible. These loadouts can be the difference between a win and a loss, especially as the meta is constantly changing. 

For the most part, Warzone players will run an assault rifle or SMG alongside a sniper, so that they get the best of both worlds. Though, Black Ops Cold War’s tactical rifles have become popular too. 


Ahead of the Season 2 update, a lot of love was shown to the M16 and AUG, and following the update, the latter weapon has become more widely used by players as it deals a heft amount of damage. 

Black Ops Cold War’s AUG has become a solid choice for Warzone players.

Though, just like with every other weapon in the game, it does have an optimal setup. 

Like many other weapons, the AUG works best with the Infantry Compensator and the Axial Arms 3x sight. However, you’ll also need a bigger magazine. That’s where the 54 Round Fast Mag comes into play. 

On top of that, the best barrel to use is the 18.2 Strike Team. As YouTuber JGOD notes, this helps boost the AUG’s bullet velocity and rate of fire – making it even more deadly than it already is.


With the latest Season 2 patch looking to nerf the AUG, you’ll want to prioritize accuracy when building this loadout as well. This is where the Field Agent Grip comes in to help stabilize the rifle. Whether you’re up close or trying to beam from afar, this grip gives you the best advantage possible.

Ultimate Black Ops Cold War AUG Warzone class


  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 18.2 Strike Team
  • Optics: Axial Arms 3x 
  • Underbarrel:  Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 54 Round Fast Mag


  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

When it comes to perks, you can’t look past the typical EOD, Overkill, and Amped combo. Overkill is absolutely essential in just about every Warzone loadout, else you’ll be left with a sidearm.

The same can be said for Amped, which lets you swap between your two primary weapons faster than normal. Having these two perks complement one another is crucial to getting the most out of every loadout drop.


In terms of equipment, the choice is always yours depending on your playstlye. However, a Semtex grenade is usually the best pick for its versatility. Whether you’re trying to flush out enemies in a building or attempting to destroy a vehicle, the quick explosive can get the job done.

The AUG is one of the most powerful guns in Warzone, regardless of which attachments you equip.

If you’re looking for a different approach, you’ve always got plenty of options. With dozens of attachments to sift through, the possibilities are just about endless. Another solid choice for the AUG though, comes from none other than the top Warzone earner.

Aydan’s custom AUG setup has helped him dominate Warzone tournaments for the past few months. If you’re looking to up your game and match his aggressive playstyle, here’s everything the popular streamer runs in his loadout.


Of course, updates from Raven Software can always change things moving forward, but even in light of recent nerfs, the AUG is still a solid choice if you’re looking to change your main Warzone weapon.
