The FAL received a fairly decent buff in the latest Modern Warfare patch, but you’ll need to kit it out with the best attachments if you truly wish to make the most of its one-hit kill potential. Here, we break down two of the strongest FAL loadouts that you should be using in both Warzone and Modern Warfare.

Now that the Grau and MP5 have taken a significant hit to both their damage range, a lot of players have been searching for a worthy successor. Of course, only time will tell whether the FAL has what it takes to claim the top-tier crown.

However, the new one-shot potential this semi-automatic rifle has could give it the break it needs to finally shine in Modern Warfare’s wider meta. Whether you’re after a highly accurate rifle that can dish out decent damage or just wish to experiment with Infinity Ward’s latest FAL buff, then you’ll want to add these loadouts to your arsenal. 

Best FAL loadout for Warzone

The FAL absolutely shreds through armored units in Warzone.
  • Monolithic Suppressor 
  • XRK Marksman 
  • G.I. Mini Reflex 
  • Commando Foregrip 
  • 30 Round Mags 

The FAL already had decent range thanks to its semi-automatic fire rate, but these attachments boost this rifle’s long-distance kill potential even further. First up is the Monolithic Suppressor and XRK Marksman barrel. Not only do these attachments enhance your range damage, they also reduce recoil and increase bullet velocity.

These two attachments are arguably the most important features in this loadout as you’ll want to try to capitalize on that all-important one-hit headshot buff. Aiming for those cranium kills isn’t always easy though, so we’ve equipped the G.I. Mini Reflex sight to avoid any frustration that come with using the FAL’s unwieldy iron sights. 

The Commando Foregrip will also help keep the FAL accurate during prolonged firing, while the 30 Round Mags enable you to shred through multiple armored units without the need to constantly reload – after all, there’s nothing worse than getting caught a little short in end-game firefights.

A quick trigger finger is all you need to utilize this deadly loadout.
  • XRK Marksman 
  • Tac Laser
  • G.I. Mini Reflex 
  • Commando Foregrip 
  • 24 Round Mags 

We’ve stripped away both the Monolithic Suppressor and 30 Round Mags to help reduce the time it takes to ADS. While the extra range damage and bullet velocity may be useful in Warzone’s gigantic Verdansk map, these enhancements really aren’t needed in Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer, particularly when so many maps are geared towards close-quarters fights.

As a result, we’ve added a Tac Laser to help with those moments where you need to reliably hip fire and equipped the 24 Round Mags. This magazine size only lowers your mobility and overall control by a tiny amount, so it’s well worth the four extra bullets you get. 

The fast ADS speed of this loadout also allows you to keep the G.I. Mini Reflex, but you could switch this out for another attachment if the normal iron sights don’t bother you. While the Burst perk may seem like a decent idea, we found that a quick trigger finger is more than enough to take down a target in a matter of seconds. Make sure you use this loadout to truly strike fear into your opponents.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
