Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded has seen a revival for the submachine gun category. A plethora of guns in the class, like the Bullfrog, have risen to the top of players’ loadout choices. While they’re still primarily used as secondary weapons, players are leaning on them more than normal. As Season 6 approaches, there’s a new contender for the best SMG in Warzone and it’s the Modern Warfare (MW) AUG.
Thanks to some recognition from high-profile content creators, the MW AUG is seeing an increase in usage as Season 5 rages on. This is in no small part thanks to its surprising loadout, which packs a punch at close-range in Warzone. Below, fans can see the loadout that’s making waves in Season 5.
Best MW AUG loadout in Warzone
This MW AUG loadout is meant for an ultra-aggressive player in Warzone. It excels at close-range gunfights, both when it’s being aimed down sights and in hip-fire. In fact, this loadout’s hip-fire accuracy might be more accurate than actually aiming down sights. While players won’t want to exclusively hip-fire, it’s never a bad option when they find themselves in a pinch. Because of the MW AUG’s versatility with this loadout, it’s quickly becoming a meta SMG in Warzone.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Laser: 5mW Laser
- Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
- Magazine: .56 NATO 60-Round Drums
- Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
This is certainly an out-of-the-ordinary loadout. For starters, there’s no barrel equipped alongside the Monolithic Suppressor. However, the last few attachments make this loadout what it is. The Merc Foregrip paired with the 5mW Laser and Stippled Grip Tape gives the MW AUG terrific ADS speed hip-fire accuracy.
With the Monolithic Suppressor adding some recoil control and the .56 NATO magazine improving damage and range, this MW AUG can take on most gunfights in Warzone.
