The FR.56, aka the Famas, is no stranger to the hectic battlefields of Modern Warfare and while it may not be the assault rifle, it can still get the job done when equipped with the right attachments. Here, we break down two of the strongest FR.56 loadouts that you can use in both Warzone and Modern Warfare.

While fans of Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops will be all too familiar with this assault rifle, the latest iteration of this iconic gun may leave a number of you disappointed. In fact, the burst fire nature of the FR.56 can make it a little hard to recommend, particularly since it gets outclassed in nearly every engagement against its semi-automatic cousins.

However, with the correct setup, the FR.56 does have the potential to do rather well. In order to help you get to grips with this underused assault rifle, we’ve put together two loadouts you can equip in Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer and Warzone modes.

This loadout can shred through even the tankiest of foes.
  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • FR 24.4” Sniper
  • Corp Combat Holo Sight
  • Commando Foregrip
  • 50 Round Mags

The burst fire nature of the FR.56 can leave you high and dry in close quarters combat, so it’s often best to make some distance between you and your enemies. As a result, this loadout is tailored around mid-range engagements. Not only does the Monolithic Suppressor keep you from popping up on the minimap when firing, it also adds to your effective damage range.

As the name suggests, the FR 24.4” Sniper barrel is perfect for those long-distance firefights as it speeds up the bullet travel time, something which makes hitting mobile targets much more manageable. We’ve also attached the Corp Combat Holo Sight to help give the FR.56 a little extra boost in the accuracy department. 

Rounding things off at the bottom, are the Commando Foregrip and 50 Round Mags. The Commando Foregrip is a staple for most guns due its recoil stabilization, while the 50 Round Mags give you enough ammo to burst through even the most well-armored squads. You could switch in the 60 Round Mags here, but we personally don’t like the reduction in control and mobility.

Equip these attachments to increase your accuracy and control.
  • Muzzle Compensator
  • FR 24.4” Sniper
  • Commando Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand

Unlike our ranged build above, this loadout is focused on giving the FR.56 the speed it needs to be competitive in close-range firefights. While it will never truly be able to compete with the likes of the ever-popular Fennec or MP5 SMGs, it will at least have a fighting chance.

Both the Muzzle Compensator and FR 24.4” Sniper barrel help with recoil control and provide a significant boost to bullet velocity. While not needed on Modern Warfare’s smaller maps, the extra damage range is great for when you need to hold an angle or defend an objective from advancing enemies. 

Meanwhile, the Commando Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape keep your shots precise and your movements fast, making them essential for those of you who enjoy the run and gun playstyle. 

Lastly, the Sleight of Hand perk reduces your chances of being caught in any lengthy reloading animations. While you could switch this out for the 50 Round Mags, the FR 56’s standard clip size is more than enough to down multiple targets in Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer.

The FR.56 may not be as strong as its predecessors, but it’s still capable of dishing out a lot of damage when equipped with the right attachments.

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.

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.
