New update brings AUG nerf

Valve has released a new CS:GO update, which brings gameplay changes in the form of a nerf to the AUG.

The one and only gameplay change of the newest update reduces the rate of fire as well as unscoped accuracy of the AUG, which has been consistently rising in popularity alongside the SG553 since late last year.

Both scoped weapons received buffs in October in the form of a reduced price, prompting the increase in usage, which has continued to rise despite Valve reverting the AUG's price tag back to $3,300 in March.

AUG's popularity has kept rising despite March's update (2019 statistics)

The update also brings minor changes to the Danger Zone mode and celebrations of Counter-Strike's 20th anniversary, which include a retro version of Dust2 and the Chicken Capsule.

The full changelog looks as follows:

[20TH ANNIVERSARY]
– Celebrate 20 years of Counter-Strike with a retro version of Dust II, currently available in the Casual Dust II map group.
– The Chicken Capsule is now available for purchase in-game.

[GAMEPLAY]
– Adjustments to the AUG to bring its utility more in line with other rifles.
— Slightly reduced rate of fire.
— Reduced accuracy while unscoped.

[DANGER ZONE]
– Fixed an exploit involving duplication of items dropped by disarming another player.
– Players in warmup spawn closer to their teammate.
– Players in warmup now spawn with a random pistol.

Yeah noone remembers what happened to m4a1s Oh wait, 95% of pro players switched to m4a4
2019-06-19 08:35
But now the players realized how powerful AUG’ scope is to hold angles in maps such like Overpass, Train, Nuke (outside), Dust2.... The biggest advantage of AUG is its firerate, which becomes hard to trade against if you have an AK/M4, as the scope allows better control while shooting. Now it will become rather difficult.

For some time but then people will most likely switch back to m4a4/1s again

I bet you can't even tell if the server is 64 or 128 without using net_graph or some command that visualize the number, stop talking like its the worst problem in CSGO when its not.

Well i can see it by dying sometimes when im behind a wall on my screen and they can still kill me. Ping might be a factor but i feel like its tickrate. I do understand why MM is 64 tick and if i need 128tick experience ill just go to faceit. Oh yeah my other theory for why valve wont upgrade is that so faceit and esea wont be useless. I speak with limited knowledge and i think #313 is a more likely scenario.

2019-06-19 09:53
Tick rate is the amount of times server updates per second. Matchmaking has 64 tick rate and 3rd party matchmaking usually has 128 tick rate, that’s twice as fast
2019-06-19 18:03
Movement feels really different so most people could probably tell.
2019-06-19 09:59
Tests performed to have this "result" Are totally not numbers to trust. It was random players, random skill, random answers, no continuous following. If you have new information with high level players I would like you to show me video.
2019-06-19 10:28
They will when the majority is using 120+ hrz monitors, until then, 64 tick it is.

Tick rate has nothing to do with the refresh rate of your Monitor.... Check your facts Please. Tick rate is the refresh rate of the server, which indeed helps to accomplish a better Hit registration. But since many players a playing with bad ping or arent even good enough, valve has no need to introduce them into Match making.

2019-06-19 18:35
I was hoping for this reaction, there is always somebody yelling this. I know what server tickrate is and I know what monitor refresh rate is. I also know that your monitor is an information bottleneck for your eyes and brain, which is exactly how the two are connected.

Well, SG is somewhat similar to AK, 4 bullet on body kills, headshot = kill, and I don't know why but I still prefer AK due to forgiving vertical spray pattern. Having to scope when pushing sites is not ideal. In contrary, having scope when holding site is a different matter, that's why AUG is nerfed, I guess.

This has happened before, and the tournaments just play on the older patch.

i dont know why the sig wasnt nerfed along with the aug, its just as good and now the t's have huge advantages across the board when it comes to weaponry and economy...this isnt just an aug nerf this is another CT nerf.
2019-06-19 02:01
Picking with a sg scoped is completely different than holding the corner with the aug. That's why people still use AK on t side

Much needed update!! BUT WHY VALVE during an international tournament WHY fucking up the preparation teams did for the tournament??? I just hope ESL decides to play on the last version of the game.
2019-06-19 02:06
So what's the problem exactly? As long as ESL is able to use old version it is not rly valve fault what happens...
2019-06-19 02:10
because esl usually plays with the update, that's my problem and valve knows it, why not after the tournament
2019-06-19 02:14
it is tournament organizer job to decide which patch they use, not valve's, why'd they give a fuck
2019-06-19 02:15
Uhh, no they don't? They stick to whatever patch they started the tournament on if there is a patch mid-tournament. Even if there is a patch a week before they tend to stick with the old patch so the games hold some quality.

AK balance is perfect for TR-side.
2019-06-19 06:33
Yes, that's why it accounts for over 40% of overall kills with the next highest being the (now nerfed) AUG on less than 20%.
2019-06-19 06:40
AUG Nerf is fine, but why not show some love for M4? The main reason why most teams stayed with AUG even after the price rise is that M4 has a huge disadvantage while battling with AK..

CS community loves to nerf stuff, it took them 7 years to realize AUG was good to get it nerfed on 6 months. On a few months they'll go against the SG, damn you Valve, I was buying it anyway on the old price tag. Why can't we have nice stuff people!?! We smart, we loyal, we NERF!
2019-06-19 06:32
Comparing to CS 1.6 most of CS:GO weapons were too OP from the beginning.
2019-06-19 06:36
1.6 and GO are different on a lot of stuff, like Source was too his own thing. They share the basics, but we shouldn't take one as measure from the other. There's way too many purists on CS, I played CS since before 1.6 and I would really like to see some changes (most of the blame goes to the CS old guard that infected newcomers with their close minded mentality, same shit that went wrong with Source). We're holding back CSGO until it gets so stale that the game will die. Good luck with Valve developing something new after that, I even doubt there's real developers working at that company by now. We're like the Melee fanboys crying for something that was released for the fucking GameCube, just move on and learn new stuff.
2019-06-19 07:23
Lul, I didn't say anything against CS:GO, chill. I like both 1.6 and GO, but I'd like to see changes which make GO closer to 1.6 in some things.

i like changes that make the game better too but i don't like changes that do the opposite. cs doesn't need "call of duty- like weapons", it should improve on its own strengthes and core gameplay. the scoped AUG makes holding angles way too easy and it decreases skill ceiling making differences between good and bad players not as obvious anymore and that really shouldn't be the case in a competitive shooter like CS.
2019-06-19 15:01
What's better for the game goes on the people eyes and what they like, I was a die-hard fan of the Krieg and I've played way more with SG than AK. I like scopes, I would even like to have better ones on GO, but I've been playing as awper since CS early days so I may be biased about the subject. To me it adds another layer to the game and people (pros more than anyone since they show off the meta) just got it all wrong. CS players just weren't willing to adapt and think a little outside the box. Scoped rifles made me watch a lot more CS than I used to, but I expected a meta shift that never came. It's like when Tec-9's took the spotlight, there was a lot of tactics around it, setups to counter it and a shift on how utility was used just for that gun. But people cried about it, got nerfed and the game didn't become better. It was just more plain and simple, easier.

World breezy0 
i'm not saying introducing scoped weapons like the AUG makes the game generally worse. but the way it was implemented was just wrong because it made a core aspect of the game way too easy: aiming and shooting. when it's implemented properly and players have to master a certain skill set to effectively use it i'm all for it.

2019-06-19 08:34
+1 i watch some videos on youtube. Nothing changes on scoped aug. But i think pro players will not choose this weapon anymore.
2019-06-19 08:49
No you are dumb, why people want guns be inaccurate, that's awful...You could just make it more expensive, making it inaccurate gun while scoped would probably be most shit design idea I have heard about anyway.

Aug the same for years. Nobody plays AUG Cut prize by 150: Aug OP as fuck! Bring back original costs: Still OP as fuck. Only the counter strike community and Pro's act this stupid.
2019-06-19 09:14
so basically the aug didnt change at all. people will till be holding gay ass angles like quad to mid and onetap you for 3300. they had to bump the price....
2019-06-19 09:17
People are not gonna buy the AUG just for the sake of holding one angle. Even if they do so, counter measures will be taken against who ever use the gun because now it's harder to fight up close without using the scope and we must consider that its rate of fire was reduced (which was like on that LASER type M4A1 back in the past).
2019-06-19 09:33

because the aug is a stupid low-skill weapon, too easy to play too strong. it decreases skill ceiling which is not good for the game and the pro scene at all. players with average aim can catch up to people with better aim because of the aug, that shouldn't be the case in a so called competitive shooter.

Yes... For newfags or just n00bs, Aug is the best thing to the game. After all, who cares about pure, raw aimers that really have skill instead of positioning on corners scoping angles? Also true, aug exists since day one but not with present fire rate nor price... Don't worry. Maybe they make something like a scope to P90 so you can play the game like if you were good...

Europe Cr3eP_70 
No it was not! A lot of noob teams appeared from zero like if they are excellent prospects when overall they are nothing more than average teams. When you a top team like Astralis (happen yesterday) starting a round with 4 Augs and 1 AWP, have to ask myself if this is the meta I would like to see in the future. No it is not! My Blue Laminate Stattrack have 17.698 kills in it. My scoped weapons combined have not even 1/3 of that... Bottom line: for me, game is all about raw skil. Put your bullet where you put your non-scoped eye. AWP is more than enough for scope, imo

To all those saying someone's era is over or some specific player or team will be of less power, this patch applies to everyone and all the games I have seen this year, all teams use the Aug to some extend, so this is a nerf to all, I doubt it will change as much as some people expect in the balance between teams.

T needs a weapons advantage with the AK because the CTs got positional advantage, that's how the game is supposed to be and it's fair. with the AUG the CTs get like a scoped AK which is not fair at all.

2019-06-20 15:31
Finally! Rate of fire nerf was the best possible nerf for AUG if rock-paper-scissor mechanics was to be mentained instead of "buy-if-you-can" mechanic, not sure if inaccuracy nerf really was necessary on top of rate of fire nerf but we'll see, perhaps it's rather marginal then it's fine.
2019-06-20 15:36
Great
2019-06-21 19:13
The AUG has changed the game in last month, even with the "downgrade" that actually improved it on long range weapons maps like dust2/overpass, by my estimates, also showing up in the stats for matchs where long range weapons has more effect. AUG vs KRIEG stats also show this as player choices. Also players, that would normally not be very accurate, have now been given a heads up effectively and can completely alter the outcome of games. [Weapon stats for last month] hltv.org/stats?startDate=2019-05-22&endD.. [ T/CT distribution per map last month] hltv.org/stats/maps?startDate=2019-05-22..
