The Steyr AUG A3 rifle is similar in design to the AUG A2 but features a rail on top of the receiver and an external bolt release. This gives the AUG A3 low recoil and a high fire rate.

Follow this guide if you want to know more about this weapon’s stats and compatible attachments.

AUG A3 Assault Rifle Stats

  • Ammo Type: 5.56
  • Magazine Size: 30
  • Extended Magazine Size: 40
  • Capacity: 500
Attachments

The AUG A3 has four attachment slots that can be occupied by the following items:

  • Magazines:
    • Extended Mag for AR, S12K
    • QuickDraw Mag for AR, S12K
    • Extended QuickDraw Mag for AR, S12K
  • Sights:
    • 2x Aimpoint Scope
    • 4x ACOG Scope
    • Holographic Sight
    • Red Dot Sight
  • Suppressor for AR, S12K
  • Foregrip

It is highly advisable to use the AUG A3 with the Angled Foregrip attached, as it will significantly reduce the vertical recoil. It is quite manageable on its own, but with the foregrip, it will be almost absent.

Is This the Best Assault Rifle in the Game?

While the AUG A3 is a great weapon, and it is a bit better than the M416, it still loses to such rifles as the Groza and AKM in terms of power and damage. So, it’s definitely a worthy choice, but it most definitely does not deserve to be a crate-only weapon.
