Are fully automatic weapons too boring for you? Anyone can play with them? Then we have the right setup guide for you. The FR 5.56 or FAMAS is especially powerful in multiplayer but it can also give you the edge in Warzone.

The FR 5.56 is based on the French FAMAS and is the only assault rifle beside the FAL that does not have a fully automatic fire mode. With its 3-shot firing mode, it is rather unpopular with many players and most Warzone players probably know it mainly because of its shotgun attachment.

The weapon is actually incredible. Especially in multiplayer, a burst on the upper body is enough to take out your enemy and even in Warzone the armor of an enemy can quickly be shredded. The big disadvantage of the gun is you have to hit the complete 3-round burst. If you don't hit the first burst, you usually don't have the time to do a second one before getting sprayed down by a fully automatic weapon. On the other hand, if you have a good Aim, you can distribute one-shot-kills left and right in the multiplayer.

To get the best out of the FR 5.56 we recommend the following setup, which works in Modern Warfare as well as in Warzone:

As usual, we focus on optimizing the range and controlling the recoil:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FR 24.4" Sniper
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Rubberized Grip tape

The silencer increases the range and hides us when shooting on the minimap. The sniper barrel further increases the effective range, as well as bullet speed and recoil control. The Commando Foregrip and the Rubberized Grip Tape further reduce recoil, which ensures that even at longer distances the three shots per salvo are placed as close as possible and do not scatter. For Warzone we also recommend the larger magazine so you can take out several armored opponents. For multiplayer, you should exchange the magazine for better aim. The Tactical Laser would be the best choice.

With this setup, you are very precise even at long distances. If you have good aim and your bursts will hit the upper body or the head. The FR 5.56 is one of the fastest assault rifles with the shortest TTK - at least in multiplayer.

Try it out, if you don't rely on fully automatics, we guarantee you'll have a lot of fun with the FR 5.56.
