Lol you fucking kidding? Nobody will even consider it for a second.
Back to the same old 3-gun-meta that has existed since the middle ages, soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fucking boring.
I did not even see this update
I think it will still be used on maps like Overpass and Nuke, where long-range battles would be easier using zoom.
hopefully it is gone, the only people who want the aug in the game are ones who get 3 kills pr half w/o it
I tested it. I think this nerf is as noticeable as the m4a1-s fire rate nerf. The fact that it's more inaccurate while unscoped as well. Might see it drop.
This update is actually retarded.
Why would they kill off the AUG completely? Typical Valve dumbasses not knowing how to balance their own shit again. Literally they didn't even touch the SG, which is insane now compared to the AUG. CT meta is going to immediately be back to strict M4/AWPing, while T's get a free walk in the park with the SG now.
Seriously, it's like the AUG is a fucking pocket CZ with 30 bullets now; WTF were they thinking? "Slightly" was not the right fucking words for this nerf.
I don't think it will die so ez, just less OP now than in past which is good.
aaaand back to old boring days with only 3 weapons - ak, awp and m4
i can finally buy an aug chameleon skin for cheap after 60 weeks!!!!!
very good news for skilled the players and a sad day for the human bots
The firerate is the main reason why the original a1 nerf was too much. I don't mind the inaccuracy but the firerate is too much for the gun to actually be viable now. Back to a4
Bot Niko started to use it so they nerfed it
AUG now will suck 3330$ vs 3100 M4
only noobs now will use this gun
It will still be a decent gun but not a crutch for every medicore player. They did it right.
fire rate ok but rng sounds stupid
it was a stupid nerf, they should have just increased the price to $3700 or so
ez now terrorist can abuse peekers advantage like the good ol days
I'm sorry silvers and gn's, it had to be done. The more they made the AUG useless as f*ck, the better. I'm sick and tired of unskilled players holding easy angles (I'm talking to YOU, Dust 2 long camping car) and getting free 4 kills in a round.
Give the same player an AWP or an M4 and they would kill 1 player at max before being traded into oblivion. Or worse, they wouldn't even choose that ridiculous camping spot at the first place.
Sh*t, there is already a gun in the game made for scrub-like corridor holding for people that can't shoot straight, it's called SCAR-20.
Hopefully, no one buys it anymore.
ppl will still buy it. At least for now they are still using it
mm and faceit is still ruled by scoped aug meta.
No, aug is very good gun, but, nerf not needed
