Keep everything the same, but make it impossible to kill with 3 shots, make it 4 shots at every range against armor, keep it`s 1 headshot kill capabilities

Pointless..both raising the price AND nerfing the rof will kill the gun. No one will pay extra 400-500$ for a scope. Just raise the price...they should have done the same with the aug, but now its dead. Its a fair trade, you get a better rifle than the default (m4, ak), but you'll have to pay.

Increase price by 300$ and rof a bit

it will just make csgo back to ak vs m4

totally agree. so this gun will be used when you have good economy only, and when everyone has 5000 there will be good old ak-47

Elige can suck a fat one, no one will spend 4000 on the gun. It's not that powerful, people need to stop exaggerating everything.

I honestly think 3750 would make the game more interesting. Makes the weapon a viable scope option if an awper can’t afford the awp, while still being semi reasonable. Also 1000 more than AK which is justified by higher rof, bullet acc, and scope.

Just revert the AUG changes and the meta will find a new balance, do what Valve intended to do at first. AUG was so OP because teams still were playing mostly with AKs instead of SGs, but we could find a new balance. If nerfs are needed that would be a lot more fair and reasonable ground to start with changes to scoped guns.
2019-11-10 04:52
this would balance it, probably. but many people would not like the scope meta. ak m4 has been a staple of the game ever since 1.6 and requires much more skill!
2019-11-11 05:01
GuardiaN | 
Other Darge 
I've been playing CS since even before 1.6 and I don't mind the scope meta at all, I honestly feel like CS has moved way beyond ScreaM's kind of flicks. It needs to move on the direction that Astralis is pushing it, where smart CS beats raw skill. Scoped guns add new variables to the game, you shouldn't nerf those but instead change the way you play with them. Like make that the AUG noticeably slow you down but without all the current nerfs, that the SG pattern go wild after the first 3 bullets if you aren't scoped. Make them non-expensive viable guns, but force the players to put some thought behind going for the scoped guns or not. The game will only gain in depth if there's more good options to play with, just don't make guns better or worse, make them different.
2019-11-11 13:11
North America Sluttysally 
+1 this is so true. Especially the remark about how Astralis is pushing the limits of the game
2019-11-11 13:58
"that the SG pattern go wild after the first 3 bullets if you aren't scoped." krieg spray is ez as fuck on first 10 bullets you clearly havent played 1.6 stfu you dumb fuck. people always shit like "ive played since 1.6" on Krieg nerf threads bruh im sure as fucking hell ure at most a Nova
2019-11-12 03:35
If you claim that the pattern is easy and I want a harder one, aren't we on the same page then? Just go to play MM since that's how you measure skill and game knowledge, you may have some silvers to impress.
2019-11-12 09:26
Liechtenstein Niko0 
I think just nerfing sg's firerate just a bit and bumping up augs rate same would make the game perfect. Ak's and m4's would be still better at close range and krieg's and aug's would rule at maps like dust etc
2019-11-11 13:37
I had a break with using AUG, but recetly I tried it and it's still a good weapon, especially on longer distances, holding Long on Dust 2 or Outside on Nuke is very easy.
2019-11-11 21:11
It's still too expensive, picking between M4 or AUG should be an strategic choice and don't be influenced by economy. AUG price needs to drop down so we can balance the SG on an even ground, I want them to see play and don't be throwed into the garbage bin.
2019-11-12 01:10

They should raise the price, lower the fire rate, and increase the recoil because there's almost no recoil on it compared to other rifles.
2019-11-10 04:58
"and increase the recoil because there's almost no recoil on it compared to other rifles" What? SG 553 has a raw recoil amount of 28 per bullet (second only to the ak at 30) and when combined with its high ROF it gains the single highest raw recoil of any rifle in the game (unscoped, of course)
2019-11-10 05:23
China Blitzer 
i mean... a hardly "pattern" for the recoil, like it's ridiculously easy to manage compared to ak and m4 when you realize it's basically a diagonal line.
2019-11-10 05:24
that's true, but just "increase the recoil" doesn't fix that problem, does it? the only real way to change that is to change the pattern...

all these threads about heavily nerf krieg make me mad. its gun that was always there and now just cuz price drop all pros and everybody and their mom complain about it. 1st raise price to 3200 then see how it plays out not just massive nerf all at once like aug
2019-11-11 04:51
this, valve never does stable changes, they always make gun useless after nerf. if they wanted players to use bigger variety of guns, they would start dropping m4a1-s price by few hundred dollars, see where it goes and raise krieg prices and check the numbers. its so fucking simple dont even have to change bullets, damage or anything just manipulate usage % by fucking price hello dogs
2019-11-11 05:03
"it has always been there" is a bad argument if there was always been a dick in your mouth you wouldnt want to remove it is that so?

Yeah tbh the current state of the AUG is fine. Situational with some advantages over the m4 and some weaknesses but not prioritized by every player in the server, that's how it should be.
2019-11-11 21:12
Spray changes will only catch up in 3-4 months after a couple of pro teams grind the gun more. Reduce its rate of fire to be the same as the AK and make it 3100 so people will buy it for the scope and the first bullet accuracy instead of the 1 second 3 body shot kill

2019-11-11 17:45
they pick it over awp because you can't buy the krieg on ct side

Yes? Did they pick ak instead of awp? If they didn't, why didn't they? They can't get ak on ct
2019-11-11 20:53
it's based on the financial situation if you have money to spare, you can take an ak/krieg over since you can buy an awp regardless if you don't, it's better to guarantee an awp instead of getting the weapon you can't buy
2019-11-11 20:58
Not so much, sg is the best wepon in the game so pick awp over it is just retarded, and most pros are not retards

RoF nerf AND base damage or armour pen nerf (no more 3 shot kills ffs) are both needed. After those two are done, the cost should be slightly increased to maybe 2900 or 3000. Keep the scope and leave the weapon specifically to duel awps

no, not in pro cs and no way in normal cs. I hate that gun because you cant retake sites as ct. people win long range fights against awps. I just hate it, but love playing it, because its overpowered af. also makes pro cs not enjoyable anymore. they have to nerf the gun itself, not too much but dont make it 100% accurate, best firerate, easier spray + a fucking 5.0x scope for 500$ more? no people would still buy it more than the ak make it 3700 or 3800 then they can keep that gun how it is but 3250$ would not be a fix for this
2019-11-11 22:19
Croatia nAmeless69 
Yeah i agree, it’s op for sure for its price. But if u up the price, players and teams would use it less because of economy management. Maybe a bit more than $500 idk, but i don’t think they should nerf it so people stop playing with it like they did with AUG. Remember the times where everybody was calling AUG and SG noob/shit guns. I was occasionally using them even before and people would be so pissed at me
2019-11-12 10:53
you can only get 3 shots when the enemy hits you in the ballsack area, same goes with ak.
2019-11-11 22:09
Valve is probably rebalancing every weapon in the game at this point for the next update, otherwise I don't see why they would take so long with the SG nerf.
2019-11-11 22:12
United States jay_320 
600 RPM. Unscoped accuracy debuff to behind the AK. Maybe even slow down movement speed further when zoomed. The Krieg meta makes it so that *EVERY* team has good T sided riflers. These types of players are usually a luxury. What it means for your competitive game is that extremely good M4 players get beat by mediocre Krieg players in duels. It's done nothing but shrink the skill gap which is the last thing CS ever needed.
2019-11-11 22:16
MAD? U just got owned by my KRIEGAH

Give it cz-75 spray pattern with slow recovery when scoped in. Best be sure your first bullet accuracy is insane when scoped.

3200$ no Nerf for SG 3600$ for Pre-Nerf AUG Buff ROF slightly for M4A1-S Then we good. Sacrificing a Smoke+Flash for that Scope seems fair to me.

Put 3rd zoom for AWP. AK-47 price 900. New nades - FART nade / Gangbang nade / RektGG nade. Use SG as a DECOY!

Fun joke, but a gas grenade would actually be a great addition. It could work just like a smoke grenade but you take damage inside it.

Increase price to 3000 and reduce firerate a little, and make a 0.1 sec delay when scoping and unscoping.

Yes! Increase firerate 2x, give it another zoom like AWP, remove inaccuracy when moving so it can work like an SMG, remove recoil completely and reduce the price to 600$ so you can buy it on pistol round! That would be great, wouldn't it?
