The Auger is a light machine gun added to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on May 2nd, 2017.
The Auger is unlocked either through obtaining a variant through supply drops, instant access through the season pass, or by completing a challenge. The challenge consists of completing a total of 20 matches where the player landed at least 50 shots using LMGs.
The Auger's initial fire rate is moderately slow, but quickly ramps up to a fire rate comparable to the Mauler, albeit slightly slower. Unlike traditional Miniguns from previous installments, the Auger cannot be spooled up before firing by aiming down sights, thus forcing the player to go through the initial slow fire rate every time they stop shooting. Pre-firing on an enemy position or anticipating enemy movements can help the player to bypass this limitation and deal as much damage as possible in a short amount of time.
The Auger features an integral Reflex Sight with a circular white reticule by default. The reticule displays a decently sized cone of fire, but the sight may be cumbersome and obstructive to the player, and so a different optical attachment can be chosen if preferred. The Auger is sometimes wielded by bots and can be picked up.
When Pack-a-Punched via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Single Wrecker. When Pack-a-Punched again once the Alien Fuses have been installed into the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the King Richard.
