Stay tuned and learn all you need to know about the SG 553 and AUG if you're seeking a comparison between the CS:GO rifles. We are all aware of the two firearms that have been in the game from the start but were never widely deployed. Let's discuss why.
AUG vs. SG 553: what is better in 2023

Once upon a time, there was a short period when players chose an alternative instead of the well-known classics. In the history of CS:GO, it has developed so that players do not and will not have a full-fledged choice of weapons. Despite the abundance of options, people still prefer the M4A4/M4A1-S or the AK-47. Today you will read about AUG and SG 553's storylines and which of these weapons is better. Let's roll!

 

AUG and SG 553 in 2018

In any competitive game, meta can change several times during a calendar year. If players are ready to play Mirage for 20 years in a row, then any changes will be very noticeable for them. AUG and SG 553 were noticed in 2018. Besides the high price, players did not see other rifles out of habit. And, 2018 was mentioned for a reason. Valve reduced the cost of each of these rifles by $300. For the price, it practically became like the AK-47 or M4A4 / M4A1-S. 

 

Cybersportsmen have a terrible attitude towards any innovations or changes in the game, so the players began to demand that the developers return the old cost of these rifles. What do you think is the reason for this? Did you know that the AUG was the second most popular rifle then?

 

Half a year later, Valve made a new update in which the AUG and SGG 553 were fixed. The rate of fire and accuracy were reduced. AUG has become almost useless in the Pro scene and among casual players. Despite the Revolver, this was the only innovation and meta-change of all time. Do you feel that the variety of weapons in the game is just an illusion of useless things?

 

 

History of SG 553 CS:GO

SG 553 does not exist in real-time. In previous versions of the game, this rifle was similar to the SG 550, but to avoid copyright infringement, Valve deliberately renamed the weapon to Krieg 552. The history of this rifle begins in the 1950s. The predecessors of these weapons were in service with the Swiss army. Soon, the army upgraded this weapon many times, resulting in many modifications to the SG.

History of AUG CS:GO

STEYR began work on weapons in the 1960s, but it only entered service in 1977-1978. AUG is an acronym. It translates from German as "Universal Army Rifle". In CS 1.6, the very first modification of this rifle was introduced. In CS:GO, we already see the STEYR AUG A3. In CS 1.6, this rifle was called the BullPup. Funny name, isn't it? This name refers to the mechanism inside this weapon.

Is SG 553 better than the AUG?

The difference between the AK-47 and the M4A4 is directly proportional to the difference between the AUG and the SG 553. The AUG has such advantages as extended range, high rate of fire, and high burst accuracy. SG also has a faster reload and increased penetration. Despite these advantages, the SG 553 ruins it with one point - a 1-shot kill to the head. SG 553, as an AWP - deals so much damage that it ignores enemy armor.

 

 

The choice and comparison of these rifles are subjective because each person feels the weapon differently. These weapons are very versatile and are suitable for attack and defense.
