AUG Best Attachments & Class Setups Black Ops Cold War

The AUG is a burst fire tactical rifle. The weapon deals high damage and takes out an enemy with 1 burst if all shots land. It has a slower movement speed than the M16 but still fairs well when compared.

As with all the tactical rifles, ADS times and fire power are naturally lower so our focus on attachments will be to address these downfalls. 

Below you will find a review of the weapon stats, best attachments, and class setups for the AUG in Black Ops Cold War. 

Weapon background

The AUG has featured in many Call of Duty as different variants down the years. It has been an LMG, AR and SMG throughout various titles. 


  • Damage: 54
  • Rate of Fire: 857 RPM
  • Recoil: Low

AUG Cold War Best Attachments

The best attachments for the AUG in Cold War are the:

  • Quickdot LED
  • 17” Titanium Barrel
  • Serpent Wrap
  • Raider Pad

The 17” Titanium Barrel adds 21% to the fire rate of the weapon, the Serpent Wrap boost ADS times by 25%. In terms of a stock, the Tactical Stock is fine for starting off until you unlock more on the weapon, then move onto the SAS Combat or Raider Pad.

We also recommend changing out the optic on the AUG. You can find some great classes below which does just that.
