Popularized by JGOD, this FR 5.56 or Famas build is centered around using the weapon with the semi-automatic mode on. This allows you to maintain complete control of the weapon and hit every shot at medium-long range.
First of all, you’ll want to equip the Monolithic Suppressor to increase the weapon’s overall bullet velocity and remain undetected on the mini-map. While you can often skip using a silenced weapon in standard Call of Duty multiplayer, it’s essential in the battle royale environment.
Next, equip the FR 24.4″ Sniper barrel to increase the weapon’s effective damage range and utilize the Commando Foregrip to bolster the gun’s recoil. These attachments allow you to maintain complete control of the FR 5.56 while taking out opponents from range.
Finally, you’ll want to use the 50 Rnd Mag to ensure you never run out of bullets and the VLK 3.0x Optic for a clear scope that allows the weapon to thrive at both medium and long range.
Keep in mind, it’s important you use this build with semi-auto mode on and tap fire the weapon. The TTK is extremely quick and you’ll be regularly picking enemies off from a distance with this loadout.
