- "Assault rifle converted to a 9mm submachine gun. Possesses excellent range for an SMG and comes with a 32-round magazine."
— In-game description
The AUG A3 features a below average rate of fire for a submachine gun, with mediocre damage and a slightly above average magazine capacity. That being said, it also has a steady recoil that makes it easy to control in long bursts. Overall, the gun is better suited for headshots rather than shots to the body, where its damage leaves something to be desired.
The in-game name of AUG A3 is misleading to the real life model, and instead appears to be an AUG A3 converted to fire the 9x19 Parabellum Cartridge. This weapon is known as the AUG A3 9mm or AUG A3 Para. The main difference between the A2 that the GSG 9 CTU has access to is the sight rail, which is not raised above the shell eject on the A3 like it is on the A2, as well as the under barrel rail instead of a built in grip.
