On Thursday, Battlestate Games finally revealed the Steyr AUG in action, an upcoming bullpup weapon coming to the realistic first-person shooter, Escape From Tarkov. While its animations and sound are not finalized, the Steyr AUG was showcased during today’s Livestream. The Steyr AUG uses 5.56×45mm NATO ammo, and it’s hard to say it will break the current Escape From Tarkov meta.
The weapon will arrive with an in-built 1.5x optic, one of the positive characteristics that will allow players to engage in fights at slightly larger distances without investing in additional equipment and gun modifications. The video below shows that the AUG already has the scope in its default form. Knowing Battlestate Games and Escape From Tarkov’s advanced gunsmith, the customization of this weapon will likely expand and allow players to install their favorite optics on it.
Previously, this particular assault rifle was teased in a tweet. Will this Austrian-originating weapon cause mayhem on the Streets of Tarkov, or will it be just another miss like the G36? Time will tell. Stay tuned for more information!
