The shotgun attachment for the Famas or FR 5.56 has been ridiculously overpowered following Warzone’s Season 5 update, turning the assault rifle into a one-shot kill weapon. Here’s what you’ll need to try it for yourself.

While the Famas has been a popular weapon in past Call of Duty titles, the burst-fire FR 5.56 in Modern Warfare has not been quite as devastating as previous automatic versions.

However, following the Season 5 update, Warzone players have found that the Famas’ shotgun attachment, 12-Gauge Deputy, makes it the best gun in the game.

This overpowered attachment was first highlighted by XclusiveAce but fellow Call of Duty YouTuber FaZe Swagg revealed a ridiculous shotgun loadout he was using to dominate Verdansk.

The most important part of this loadout is the ’12-Gauge Deputy’ underbarrel shotgun attachment, as it was revealed that it could kill players with full plates from up to 15m away.

Despite being incredibly strong at close range, as with all shotguns, the attachment falls off in longer-range fights and Swagg revealed the attachments you will need to keep the Famas viable at all times.

The popular content creator recommended attachments such as the FR 24.4” Sniper Barrel, Monolithic Suppressor, and VLK 3.0x Optic to increase the weapon’s damage range. You can find the full loadout below.

  • Barrel: FR 24.4” Sniper
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: 12-Gauge Deputy
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

One flaw with the 12-gauge deputy attachment is the lack of ammo that comes with the gun, meaning that you will likely have to find resupplies or munitions boxes during your Warzone matches.

This overpowered loadout might not be viable for too long, however, after Infinity Ward confirmed that they are now looking into a fix for the FR 5.56’s shotgun damage.

While it is unclear just when this shotgun attachment will be patched, it is likely that Warzone players won’t have too much longer to experience the attachment at its full strength.

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.
