Black Ops Cold War leak reveals return of old-school AUG rifle

Older Call of Duty fans might be in for a treat, as a notable CoD leaker has revealed that the classic Black Ops 1 assault rifle, the AUG, might be making an appearance in the upcoming Black Ops Cold War multiplayer,

While Black Ops Cold War is introducing a number of new and exciting features to the franchise, it’s also bringing back a number of nostalgic weapons from previous games. Given that it’s a direct sequel to Black Ops 1, it makes sense that these weapons would be making an appearance.

Thanks to the BOCW Alpha and the Beta, we know that the game will feature classic guns like the M16, the Spas-12 (now called the Gallo SA12), the MP5, the 1911 pistol, and more, alongside newer guns.

Based on new leaks, it appears that Treyarch has added another old-school gun to the game and it’s sure to make some assault rifle savants very happy.

While a variant of the weapon made an appearance in Modern Warfare 2, the AUG was made famous by Black Ops 1.

Thanks to a leaked image from prominent CoD dataminer, TheGhostofMW2, we now know that the old-school-style AUG assault rifle from BO1 is likely to be making an appearance in Black Ops Cold War.

The image seems to show the AUG with its unique scope just like how it appears in the first game. Unfortunately, no video is available, so it’s unknown what the recoil patterns, ammo capacity, or attachments are like on the original version.

If it’s anything like its BO1 counterpart, though, it’s going to be a beast, since it was one of the game’s more popular choices in multiplayer.

The weapon has made appearances in one way or another in a couple other CoD titles.

Before its debut in BO1, an LMG variant of the AUG made an appearance in Modern Warfare 2 (2009), while an SMG variant showed up in 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot, and subsequently, Warzone.

In Black Ops 1, the AUG was known for its high-fire rate and low recoil, which made it very formidable. While there’s no telling how it’ll perform in this game, there’s no doubt that it’ll be a blast of the past for old-school players.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
