The FFAR 1 was one of the best close-quarter weapons in Warzone Season 3, but how does it stack up in Season 4? Find out which attachments you should be using in order to increase your win rate.
Warzone’s mid-season patch is finally here, bringing with it plenty of new content and a host of weapon balance changes. Despite the nerfs targeting the FFAR’s max damage, range, and neck multiplier it can still deal incredible amounts of damage if kitted out correctly.
While this lightning-fast AR may not be as strong as it has been in previous seasons, this updated FFAR 1 loadout will still give you the edge needed to secure those high kill count games. Whether you’re looking to get that all-important win on Rebirth Island or just want a viable close-quarters companion, you can’t go wrong with the FFAR.
Best FFAR build for Warzone
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.5″ Task Force
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Ammunition: Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
While the FFAR may have taken a significant hit in Season 4, this loadout helps to alleviate some of the gun’s current issues and enables you to pick up plenty of kills. In fact, the current meta setup perfectly demonstrates just how lethal the FFAR can be.
The ever-popular Agency Suppressor is still there, ensuring you stay off the map while increasing bullet velocity and damage range.
Both the Raider Stock and Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag also remain untouched. After all, the added mobility and extra ammunition will always be beneficial, particularly when you’re going for those clutch squad wipes.
Rounding things off at the bottom of the list is the Field Agent Grip. The FFAR’s biggest downfall is its recoil, massively inhibiting its ability to perform at range. The Field Agent Grip improves both horizontal and vertical recoil, meaning stable shots are far easier. Even so, it’s important to bear in mind the FFAR is best at close to medium ranges.
Best FFAR setup (Perks & equipment)
- Perk 1: E.O.D.
- Perk 2: Overkill
- Perk 3: Amped
- Secondary: Kar98k
- Lethal: Semtex
- Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor
Just like most meta AR Warzone loadouts, our FFAR class utilizes EOD and Amped. Not only do these perks keep you safe from any explosives, but they also enable you to quickly swap weapons – an area that is incredibly important when snagging those clutch kills.
Overkill enables the use of the Kar98k which remains one of the best weapons in Warzone Season 4. While Overkill keeps you competitive in close-quarter firefights, it also gives you tremendous amounts of coverage in mid to long-range firefights. Here, the FFAR will be your weapon for close to medium ranges, while the Marksman Rifle will ensure you can lay down accurate fire on far-off enemies.
Lastly, both the Semtex and Heartbeat Sensor help with flushing out pesky campers. If you find an enemy squad hiding in a nearby building, simply toss in your Semtex and let the bullets fly.
How to unlock the FFAR in Warzone
Unlocking the FFAR 1 in Warzone is incredibly simple and only requires you to reach level 40 in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone.
As the games have a synced progression system, this makes it relatively easy to unlock this high-damage gun. Of course, now you’ve got the weapon, you’ll need an effective loadout to push it to its limits.
