Why suddenly is AUG so popular?
United States pengf02

more damage than m4, easy spray control with scope, almost same price it's actually a bit OP imo
2019-01-20 04:30

AUG does less damage than m4
2019-01-20 05:21
United States Mal14 
It can 1 tap close range and does more head shot damage on long range headshots, still 4 body shots like m4, easy choice to use Aug over m4
2019-01-20 05:34
Turkey orox2 
Better for headshots but sometimes u have to it 5 times to body for a kill while m4 can do it in 4
2019-01-20 06:01
Its the opposite way around what the fuck An m4 is 5 hits to the chest w/armor and 4 to the stomach, the aug is 4 no matter what because of the armor penetration
2019-01-20 06:24
Turkey orox2 
I guess its about range. In long-range AUG<M4 for damage. In short AUG>M4
2019-01-20 06:49
98 in 4 You never got that one?
2019-01-20 09:38
2019-01-20 14:37
Check the flag lmao Worse than NA
2019-01-20 14:41
M4 has higher base damage, AUG has better armor penetration, damage drop-off and inacurracy statistic, and a better spray pattern when zoomed in. Objectively, AUG > M4A4 The M4A4 is the gun where you need to land 5 bullets almost everytime at medium distances or longer, not the AUG.

I personally use AUG but seems like I mixed up things a lot ^^
2019-01-20 15:53
lmao only ppl with less than 2 digit iq use it
2019-01-20 14:59
United States dev_number1_ce 
cuz it cost less money
2019-01-20 04:30
cause it is cheaper now
2019-01-20 04:32
the price reduction was too much.. should be at least 200-300 more expensive than AK and M4
2019-01-20 04:34
It's Volvo's way of trying to figure out how to fuck them up in a future update, I'm sure. Though they might just settle at this price/stats since it's quite underused still.
2019-01-20 04:54
China lxxl2 
It was 300 more expensive, and nobody used it. 100 more expensive is more reasonable in my opinion.
2019-01-20 04:56
I don't know how something can be op that is available to both teams? Clearly the weapon is still majorly underused so keep the price. The only thing that making it "100 more expensive" is going to do is that the people who considered to use it won't anymore because it feels like you missed your chance after a nerf.
2019-01-20 07:16

How is the AUG available to both teams? Last I checked it was only for the CTs. The Ts have the SG, which works different than the AUG. And even if it was available for both teams it can still be op. The CZ, for example, was op.
2019-01-20 09:04
Lithuania Mr|Julius 
But this is not close range its not as affective so usually the aug is gonna be uaes when u cant have an awp or on maps that are wide enough to play something like train or dust
2019-01-20 09:11
T have OP AK anyway
2019-01-20 14:57
It don't mean both SIDES can access the AUG. Sides rotate as you may know from CT to T and vise versa. Both teams have access to the gun when its their turn on CT and both teams get 15 rounds so there is nothing unfair about it. I don't get how anything can be OP in that matter, if you think its OP then buy it every round. Wheres the problem? Of course you shouldn't make a pocket AWP like the revolver but its not that big of a deal with the AUG...
2019-01-20 16:38
1 team uses it on train CT side and all of a sudden it's "popular" ? Very easy gun to hold angles with on train and any other map that has a bunch of useless shit scattered all over the map in open duels a proper rifle is going to destroy you 90% of the time.
2019-01-20 04:53
every team uses it u moron lol stfu
2019-01-20 04:57
That was the first time I've seen a full team buy of Augs literally ever in the pro scene, some players use it here and there but mostly anyone good right now in CS Go is not using this shit guns only lower noobs.
2019-01-20 04:58
almost every round for the last like month has had an aug or ssg in it....just bc 3/5 players chose to use it in the same rnd this game doesnt mean its not used MUCH more than it has ever been used before in the past....
2019-01-20 05:07
ofc it's used more there are a ton of players in tier 1/2 who lack aim skills and this gun kind of offsets it on certain maps/situations all the best riflers in the game do not use this shit weapon unless it's to troll the opponent and I didn't say it isn't getting more use I just said it isn't popular.
2019-01-20 05:10
the change to its price and the scope are what made it more popular....not people lack of aim. Stop it.
2019-01-20 05:11
Yes ofc the price drop is the main reason but they also dropped the price of the negev a while back how often you see it in play? Anyway you don't even understand my argument so I'm just going to stop responding until you figure out what I'm talking about.
2019-01-20 05:19

Because your argument doesn’t make sense
2019-01-20 07:34
wtf are you talking about?

u have no argument, there is no logic to anything u have said. And u bring up the negev? are u serious? pls go away

i've seen more augs than m4 so far in this event
2019-01-20 05:06
OFC it's a joke event no one is playing seriously.
2019-01-20 05:08
i would play serious for 100k
2019-01-20 05:23
Coming off a player break, teams with roster changes who haven't played on LAN together til this event, it's a practice event for them and Astralis will win easily once again without being tested.

They've consistently dominated the other top 5 teams some tier 2 tournament for them it's a free title and money.

Cus if ur an igl who cant aim it allows u to hold m1 and get kills
2019-01-20 05:04
1 shot to the head unlike m4. therefore the ak is still morepopular than the krieg.

just in very short distance...
2019-01-20 05:06
its not 1 shot lol
2019-01-20 07:28
I think the AUG price should ho back to 3300 .
2019-01-20 05:09
Because we COD now.
2019-01-20 05:11
Yugoslavia plsnopermaban 
statistically aug is straight up better, plus it has a scope for long range fights. spray pattern feels very similar to the m4 plus the tracers come from, like, under the scope so it's easy to readjust. can 1 shot armored opponents close range as well. all for the price of a decoy more than the m4
2019-01-20 05:21
Same price
2019-01-20 05:36
Yugoslavia plsnopermaban 
AUG is $3150 m4 is $3100
2019-01-20 05:37
bcuz of the update idiot boy
2019-01-20 05:26
because since the update its not a expensive weapon anymore it only cost 50 more then m4 or ak47
2019-01-20 05:37
i don't care about the aug at all dude, why the hell they update that cod gun and left m4a1-s ? i want update for more bullet, hope they make it 25/75 instead of 20/40.
2019-01-20 05:46

M4a4 will still be used. More firerate + more bullet. The only thing that makes m4a1 s better is lower recoil and most player can easily spray with m4 therefore there is no point in using m4a1 s. Most people will pick up an ak anyway. No point to buff m4a1 s. Plus it's 20/60 not 20/40
2019-01-20 14:32
United States jay_320 
Honestly it's pretty fucking good even without the scope. To the point I'm using an A1 and an AUG interchangeably. The M4a4 is redundant with it. The AK still feels better to me then the SG though. SG's spray is odd.
2019-01-20 06:07

Still, i find it better to repeek with m4 because faster movement.
2019-01-20 14:34
SG spray at mid and long range without scope is super random. either scope or tap fast at mid range. only spray when the spread is smaller than the enemy model size which is only if they are pretty close
2019-01-20 14:56
first 4-5 bullets with the SG are SOOO accurate though holy shit. easy donker dinks for life
2019-01-20 15:01
the first bullet is very accurate and you can tap super fast but imo 2nd-5th bullets in spray are not better than ak if you dont scope. its about equal. which means you are wasting the guns accuracy potential. although it does fire 10% faster than the ak so even if you spray without scope its more than viable.
2019-01-20 15:03
must be a personal feeling for me then i average like 80% hs when i buy that shit lmao
2019-01-20 15:07
well 10% faster fire rate and better first bullet accuracy already go a long way i just really like tapping with it, its basically 5-7 spam speed and super accurate
2019-01-20 15:09
i just fucking love the unscoped first couple of bullets, i actually feel like i have the aim of a semipro when i’m using it in my shit mm rank. i only buy it near the end of a half because i have this unshakeable fear that a ct will take it off my dead body and destroy my team
2019-01-20 15:11
yeah if i find an sg on ct side that makes me a happy panda
2019-01-20 15:12
Elige started this trend before the price reduced.
2019-01-20 06:07
elige didnt start the trend, he just used it a couple times, like magisk or nbk or chrisj. valve started the trend with the price reduction

2019-01-20 14:34
Sweden Trkmag 
They should make it spray like normal when scoped (rn it gets easier spray when scoped) and it would be fine imo
2019-01-20 14:41
It's like the CZ nobody played that gun before it "blew up".. then it was so OP people were saying to remove it from the game.. now its in the best spot after the final nerf valve did. Feels like AUG and the Krieg need a small nerf to not feel a bit too OP.. but, I kinda like such variety in the game. And not ONLY being fucking awp/ak/m4 and repeat every round. Now u see so much more stuff and variety of guns, which is good and great for the game. :D
2019-01-20 14:43
Because its the best gun in the game
2019-01-20 14:47
Austria bobobossboi 
because so easy to spray for bots to kill 2
2019-01-20 14:51
before, people all jumped on the bandwagon that it is a noob cod gun and overpriced even though you can easily rekt multiple players with aks with it at long range where their accuracy even with tapping is shit and yours is manageable on full auto. now it was slightly reduced in price, and people realised they were getting rekt by it at long range and its a very accurate gun if you use it well. its an emotional thing. people want to belong. first they belonged to the group M4 players who think aug is a noob gun and that made them feel cool. now they belong to the group of smart ppl who use aug.
2019-01-20 14:54
aug is made for CoD/lol/pubg players, I will never use this piece of shit gun, even if it costs 5 bucks in the game fuck aug.
2019-01-20 14:54
World ZMDR 
sounds like you're just bad at using it
2019-01-20 14:56
never tried to use, but dude, every noob can look "skilled" with that shit gun, I'm good with ak/m4, and I play this game since 1.5, I will not be a CoD/pubg player, NEVER. ak m4 for life, I rekt aug noobs with that shit. #resistence #realcs #FUCKPUBG #fuckaug #ak4life
2019-01-20 14:58
the augs first bullet accuracy is much better than the m4, its a big advantage in long range fights. but of course you will say that is why its noob. because it shoots more precisely where you aim. its not like that is more skill based than rng spray and pray with m4. xd
2019-01-20 15:06
no, I agree.. I'm not saying the gun is bad at the game... I'm saying is just a typical valve move to make cs more popular, and more easy I'm proud of using ak and m4, and I'm proud to be skilled enough to kill those noobs that only play with aug to me it doesnt matter if I need to pay more attention now, to me is like noob are super skilled or whatever, I dont care, I will practice even more and rekt then look to the best players in the world, most of them are not using aug, those are true warriors with honor and pride. even bit1 or karrigan can look skilled with aug zZZzzZZzzZz fuck valve
2019-01-20 15:07
but, you will die so many times just because you got bad RNG with ak or m4 on long range and the player with SG/Aug is using scope and very rarely will miss your head if he aims at it.
2019-01-20 15:10
it doesnt matter, its a pride matter valve try to destroy cs, but they will not destroy oldschool cs lovers I will never join this bullshit. lets see if those mothafuckas are ready for my ak then xd
2019-01-20 16:07
ok, if you can still win with that disadvantage, good for you
2019-01-20 16:09
of course =) thank
2019-01-20 17:49
that would really piss me off, theres nothing you can do about bad rng

remember when flusha started buying the UMP when people would almost never do it outside of antiecoo rounds or pistol victory 2nd rounds? it was then a meta thing for cts to force or lowbuy umps with utility. 2nd round following pistol ct buys would be 4 umps and one rifle. vega squadron and buying mac10s on buy rounds, most teams were actually trying it out after vega made it work a couple of times. NBK tried using the SG (as a joke?) but it never caught on because there was no incentive to use it unlike the cheap mac10 and UMP semibuys. Now that the price is lowered, the guns are unchanged and the price difference is negligible, but valve knew they has two perfectly good rifles sitting on the buy menu and wanted to influence the meta by giving pro players a chance to try out the scoped rifles and perhaps adapt them into their pro play. fokin mobile keyboard i aint fixing those typos

ump meta best meta. Now it sucks dick in long range fights
2019-01-20 15:52
the best part about that meta was how a 1200 gun was better than the famas, 2250. valve should have done something about it a long time ago and now you still never see anyone buy it because it’s freakin useless for its price.
