Warzone streamer Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff is infamous for revealing over-powered weapon builds, and his new Black Ops Cold War AUG build dominates Warzone at close-medium range.

Modern Warfare’s burst-rifles were known to be lackluster in Warzone, but Black Ops Cold War’s burst-fire Tactical Rifles pack a serious punch.

After NICKERCS’ viewers told him to try out the AUG, he admitted it’s an excellent weapon for close-medium range, but isn’t worth using at extreme long-range.

“In that sweet spot, that short to mid range, oh my god…. it’s ‘see you later man’,” he explained.

Here’s the attachments NICKMERCS used on his AUG in Warzone.

NICKMERCS’ AUG Warzone loadout

  • Muzzle: Infantry Compensator
  • Barrel: 17″ Titanium
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Rnd Drum

Black Ops Cold War’s AUG is best suited for close-mid range situation, with the damage range severely dropping off at long-distance.

Nick used the Titanium Barrel on his AUG, but warns viewers that since certain attachments have been adjusted, you may have more luck with the 18.2″ Strike Team Barrel instead. These barrels will increase the AUG’s fire rate, allowing it to output a ton of damage fast.

Once the targets are at a medium distance, you’ll find yourself needing to compensate for recoil. To combat this, NICKMERCS added the Infantry Compensator and Field Agent Foregrip. These attachments significantly reduce the AUG’s recoil, making it easer to land all three shots of a burst.

The only downside to this muzzle attachment is you’ll be showing up on the minimap, but when you’re taking out enemies in only a couple of bursts, it shouldn’t matter too much.

For extra accuracy, Nick has added the Axial Arms 3x scope. Although you should never use this weapon at long range, the increased zoom of this sight allows you to hit more accurate shots. It’s unobtrusive, so you’ll have no problem lining up upper body and headshots at any range.

To make sure you can down and finish off multiple enemies quickly, Nick runs the 45 Rnd Drum mag. With this, you’ll have more than enough ammo for multiple opponents with no penalty to mobility.

As NICKMERCS explained, if you’re looking for a gun to suit close-medium range engagements, you can’t go wrong with Black Ops Cold War’s AUG.
