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.

PlayStation 4 players have finally had a chance to get their hands on the new Call of Duty, Black Ops Cold War, extensively last weekend during the opening beta, but they were met with worrying connection issues.

Mike & Keshav welcome Drift0r to Episode #5 of the CharlieIntel Podcast. Fresh off the back of Black Ops Cold War’s first weekend of Beta, the three discuss whether the gameplay and gunplay of the game and also whether the connection issues are masking a hidden gem.

The group also discusses crossplay and how that will fit into Call of Duty ahead of the upcoming weekend where we will finally see crossplay between PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in the beta. They also discuss the importance of Fortnite fans forcing Sony’s hand into making crossplay a thing, and how it is standard across most games in the market today.

Drift0r also addresses the developers admitting that skill-based matchmaking has existed in the franchise since Black Ops 2 and defends his YouTube series claiming that SBMM didn’t exist.
