FaZe Clan’s Swagg has revealed his AUG custom loadout for Warzone, which could be the ultimate weapon to have in your arsenal for Season 4.

The AUG has soared in popularity in Warzone throughout Season 4. Following Infinity Ward’s June 29 update, the MP5 received a nerf which has shaken up the SMG meta.

Prior to the update, an M4A1/Grau 5.56 would almost always be paired with an MP5 — leading to quite a stale meta. But since the patch, plenty more weapons are coming into their own.

Leading the new meta change in Warzone, is the AUG. Plenty of top players and streamers, such as Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, have been rocking the SMG in their recent livestreams. So what is it that makes the AUG a must-have for Warzone in Season 4?

The AUG has become the go-to SMG since the nerf of the MP5 on June 29.

Best AUG loadout for Warzone Duos

If you combine the precision-focused iron sight of an AR with the mobility of an SMG, you’ll get something along the lines of the AUG. Combine this with the insane time-to-kill and there’s no wonder why even pro players have decided to ban this weapon in competitive Call of Duty.

So if you’re looking to get one step closer to dominating in Warzone Duos, then Swagg’s AUG setup might be the one for you — boosting the weapon’s Range and Accuracy to create the ultimate laser beam.

  • Barrel: 407mm Lightweight.
  • Stock: FORGE TAG CQB Comb.
  • Underbarrel: Ranger Foregrip.
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape.
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand.

Best AUG loadout for Warzone Quads

In terms of Swagg’s Quads loadout, the FaZe star only switches one thing up, by removing the Sleight of Hand Perk for a 60-round magazine — making it much easier to spray down an entire squad with just one clip.

Swagg tag teams his AUG with a 60-round Grau 5.56 as part of his go-to Season 4 class, to help him put on a 25-kill clinic, just like he showed above.

Popular Twitch streamers NICKMERCS and Swagg have explained why they just can’t bring themselves to play or stream the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta over Warzone. 

With the immense popularity of Warzone, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 has become one of the most successful titles in the franchise’s history.

It’s still a divisive game though, thanks to mechanics like weapon mounting and doors, so its multiplayer accompaniment has polarized the gargantuan fanbase.

As such, the launches of Treyarch and Raven Software’s Black Ops Cold War beta weekends have merited a ton of community hype. But, in what seems to be the norm for Call of Duty titles, the game’s players are once again divided over the upcoming iteration as well.

While a variety of Call of Duty League professionals and competitive fans have upheld the beta’s superiority, BOCW hasn’t quite made the same impression on streamers. On the negative side of the spectrum, NICKMERCS and Swagg both expressed how mediocre they find the new title and why they can’t be bothered to stream, let alone play it. 

In a duos stream, the two legendary Warzone streamers broke down Black Ops Cold War and why they refuse to partake in its testing phase. After Nick asks Swagg if he’s playing it, the latter’s response is concise: “First of all, it’s just simply chalked.”

When Swagg tries to continue on to give the political, compromising answer about how they, as streamers, consider the game from their point of view, NICKMERCS cuts him off to lay down his perspective: “F**k a POV, that game is below-average and you know it. That’s the bottom line. If it wasn’t below-average, you and me would be on it right now.”

Other Warzone streamers, like Aydan, have detailed why they think BOCW is mediocre and how it can be improved. But NICKMERCS and Swagg’s consensus doesn’t even allow room for that, they simply think the game is not worth playing at this point in time. 


Nick gave a direct comparison between BOCW and earlier Treyarch titles, and the fall in quality between them. “I remember when the Black Ops III beta came out … I couldn’t get off that f**king thing, man,” he said.

NICKMERCS and Swagg aren’t the only ones not feeling it either. Other streamers like Cloakzy continue to play Warzone instead of the beta, which the two streamers pointed out.

There’s room for Treyarch to make improvements to Black Ops Cold War. After all, it’s only in beta. However, NICKMERCS said he’s not going to hold back from criticizing something he doesn’t enjoy.

“I keep it real … If I don’t like something, I’m not gonna like it. That’s it. A lot of motherf**kers be acting in this scene, they just act. Bunch of little f**king actors. I’m not acting.”
