The M16 vs AUG Warzone debate is a hot topic these days. This article will give you the reasons to use both guns and also decide for you which gun is the “BEST”. Before we start, the M16 vs AUG Warzone stats shown below are gathered by my testing along with the information from Truegamedata and JGod on Youtube. With that said, let’s start the ultimate AUG vs M16 Cold War Warzone fight.

Conclusion for M16 or AUG Warzone Battle

Looking at the data, the AUG Tactical Rifle in Warzone wins by a slight margin. This is because in Warzone, TTK is King. And comparing the AUG vs M16 Warzone TTK, the AUG has better TTK. But remember, the inconsistent recoil pattern can make the TTK even worse than M16 at times.

You can decide by the above AUG vs M16 Warzone Season 2 stats which one is the Winner yourself.

But I will use the M16 over the AUG anytime due to the consistent and straight up vertical recoil. Also, the faster ADS speed might be the reason for you to use the M16.

The final AUG or M16 Warzone usage scenario:

  • AUG Warzone: Short-to-Mid Ranges paired with an SMG or a Shotgun.
  • M16 Warzone: Mid-to-Long Ranges paired with an SMG or an AR (preferably FFAR).
