Are you looking for the best class setups and attachments for the FR 5.56(FAMAS) in Modern Warfare? This guide takes you through everything you need to know about the FR 5.56 including weapons statistics such as shots to kill, fire rate, and recoil.

Weapon background

The FR 5.56 is, in fact, the FAMAS from previous Call of Duty titles. It originally appeared in COD 4 Modern Warfare and has since reappeared in MW2, BO, and MW3.


  • Damage: 40-32
  • Shots to Kill: 1 burst/ 1 shot – if all shots land to the upper chest. When in semi-automatic mode, the FAMAS can kill in 1 shot in close to medium range.
  • Range: Long
  • Recoil: Low to Moderate

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the FR 5.56 in Modern Warfare are the:

  • Commando Grip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • FR Ultralight Hollow
  • 60 Round Mags
  • Solozero Optic

The FR 5.56 should be used as a long-range scouting assault rifle. Therefore, we highly recommend attaching a scope you are comfortable with. The iron sights are very clunky.

The best attachments are the Commando Grip and the Stippled Grip Tape. These two attachments combined give the FAMAS deadly ADS speed and sprint out time.
