Black Ops Cold War’s AUG is a strong medium-range weapon in Warzone Pacific, but what’s actually the best loadout in terms of damage? Well, it’s actually a pretty simple setup with the perfect Perks and Attachments. 

Ever since Warzone first launched, players have been scrambling to put together the best loadouts possible to have the most efficient TTK for a weapon. 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.

Not only does the AUG have fantastic mid to long-range accuracy, but it also packs a mighty punch that can tear through even the most well-armored of foes and it’s come back into the Warzone meta in Season 4.

With that in mind, it’s key you have an AUG setup that fits your playstyle and can consistently perform in your games. Luckily, we’ve got a meta loadout that can do exactly that.


Best Cold War AUG loadout for Warzone

This AUG loadout has been heavily used across Verdansk.


  • Muzzle: Agency Silencer
  • Barrel: 17″ Titanium
  • Optics: Axial Arms 3x 
  • Underbarrel:  Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Drum

The AUG Tactical Rifle works best with the Agency Silencer and Axial Arms 3x sight. However, you’ll also need a bigger magazine. That’s where the 45 Round Mag comes into play. 

On top of that, the best barrel to use is the 17″ Titanium. This significantly boosts the AUG’s rate of fire, allowing you to get the first shot off on your opponent and kill them as quickly as possible.

To utilize the AUG’s great damage range, 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 underbarrel gives you the best advantage possible in Caldera, Rebirth, or Fortune’s Keep.

This AUG setup will give you the best of both worlds.


  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MAC-10


  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

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 until you get a loadout.

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 winning a lot of fights if you run out of ammo mid-skirmish.

In terms of equipment, the choice is always yours depending on your playstyle. 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.

Whereas the Stim can either help you to survive the gas or give you a quick pick-me-up during a 1v1.
