In Modern Warfare Season 4 we got two new weapons that are still popular in Warzone. The Fennec and CR-56 AMAX are two incredibly strong weapons, so let's see what is the best setup for both.

Yes, Season 4 of Modern Warfare was a while ago, but the two Season 4 weapons Fennec and AMAX are still going strong. Especially the AMAX has become one of the best weapons in Warzone. Today we present you the best setups for both weapons.

The fast SMG: Fennec

The Fennec is one of the fastest submachine guns to date. With 1111 RPM, it has the highest rate of fire of all Modern Warfare weapons and still has a manageable recoil. At close range, the Fennec is a true beast, but it has two major drawbacks: The standard magazine only holds 25 rounds and after only 22 meters, the damage drops noticeably. So to get the best out of the weapon, these weaknesses should be addressed.

Fennec Setup

We recommend the following setup, which works great especially in multiplayer, but can also be used at short range in Warzone:

  • Barrel: ZLR 16" Apex
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 40 Round Drum Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Perk: Sleight of Hand

This setup compensates for some weaknesses. The 40 Round Drum Mags give you enough ammo to take out several enemies before you have to reload. Above all, the barrel increases the effective range, which can be further increased in exchange for one of the other slots with the ZLR Sabre silencer. For the rear grip, we focus on improved ADS time and faster sprint-to-fire speed. Since the Fennec has one of the slowest reload times of all SMGs, we recommend the perk Sleight of Hand.

With this setup, you are well-positioned for short to medium distances, but you should keep in mind that the strengths of the Fennec are clearly in close combat. There may be better MPs for Warzone, but if you're looking for some variety, you should give the Fennec a try.

Here are some alternatives:

The Heavy-Hitter: CR-56 AMAX

The AMAX is based on the Israeli Galil ACE and, in our opinion, most closely resembles the AK. It has similar high damage, a faster rate of fire and high recoil. Even in the standard version it has an amazing range, but the recoil makes it difficult to hit accurately at long distances. Fortunately, this can be ironed out with attachments. Thanks to its high damage, the AMAX has become one of the most popular assault rifles in Warzone.

CR-56 AMAX Setup

To dominate everyone, we recommend the following attachments:

  • Muzzle: Monolith Suppressor
  • Barrel: XRK Zodiac S440
  • Stock: XRK Gatekeeper
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags

With the silencer and barrel, we can further increase our effective range and reduce the recoil at the same time. The underbarrel and stock further assist in target stability and general control of the weapon when firing. The ammunition offers two interesting options. With the 45 Round Mags, you are well-equipped for Warzone and can eat your way through the enemy armor with continuous fire.

But there is also the option to make a semi-automatic weapon out of the CR-56 AMAX. With the M67 10-R Mags, you have a very precise semi-automatic weapon, not unlike the FAL.

The CR-56 AMAX offers a lot of damage, but it cannot keep up with the Grau 5.56 or the M4A1 in terms of fire rate and control. However, the current DMR or tactical rifle meta in Warzone is all about damage per shot, which puts the AMAX above the previously mentioned assault rifles.
