During the festivities of Lunar Year and Valentine’s Day, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War released two new bundles. The Tracer Pack: Year of The Ox and the Top Secret Admirer bundles had some great skins and loadouts to look out for. But both these bundles had one thing in common. Both bundles had two different variants of the AUG, and both the guns look and hit hard.

The new AUGs in Black Ops Cold War

The new Tracer pack AUG, dubbed the Golden AUGx loadout, has become one of the most powerful loadouts in the game and it shreds hard. This class uses the Millstop reflex for the optic, with 19.6″ Match Grade and the Infiltrator Grip as the underbarrel. It also has the SAS Mag clamp as the magazine along with the tactical stock.

The Top Secret Admirer AUG, dubbed the Combat Cupid also has a powerful case for medium range loadout in the game. The Combat Cupid also uses the Millstop reflex for the optic with a 5.56 Muzzle Brake and the Infiltrator Grip as the underbarrel. It also uses the 17″ Titanium barrel and the raider pad for the stock.

These AUG variants join the XM4 and the AK74U in the overpowered loadouts

The new AUGs have only been in the game for a week, and there has been a shift in the regular loadouts for a lot of players. These guns have the damage to hit in a single burst and can kill a player in two bursts. This is the first time a new loadout has received the overpowered seal from the Call of Duty community since the XM4 and AK-74U loadouts.

These loadouts now join the popular loadouts of the XM4 and Ak-74U, which haven’t received a proper nerf ever since the game released. While the XM4 has the fast mobility and large magazine for high killstreaks, the AK-74U has fast aiming and high damage, perfect for a rusher. Both the guns also have good range, which makes them good mid range threats. Players expect all these loadouts to receive a nerf when Season 2 arrives next week.
