Famas Build MW3 – The FR 5.56, one of the two new burst-firing Assault Rifles in Modern Warfare 3, holds incredible potential when your aim is spot-on. With its three-round burst, this weapon can quickly eliminate enemies and dominate in mid to long-range engagements.

In this guide, let’s explore the best loadout to enhance the FR 5.56’s effectiveness as a dueling weapon in the MW3 Multiplayer, along with the ideal class setup to complement its strengths.

Best Attachment Setup for the FR 5.56 Assault Rifle in MW3

This loadout aims to boost the weapon’s mobility and improve recoil control during those intense 3-round bursts. The key to winning gunfights lies in being the first to shoot and land shots on your opponent, making the ‘Sprint to Fire’ stat crucial for this build.

Here are the recommended attachments to unleash the full potential of the FR 5.56 in Modern Warfare 3:

  Attachment Choice Reason
Muzzle VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor  Greatly optimizes recoil while extending the gun’s effective range. Plus, the suppressor keeps you off the enemy minimap during firing, ensuring stealth.
Underbarrel XTEN Phantom-5 Handstop  Enhances Sprint-to-Fire and ADS Speed, coupled with optimized vertical recoil and gun kick.
Magazine 45 Round Mag The base 25-round mag feels very limiting.
Optic Slate Reflector or Mk.3 Reflector  These optics provide two of the cleanest sights in MW3. Opt for a magnification scope if you prefer, though!
Rear Grip RMT Grip Increases Sprint to Fire and ADS Speed for better responsiveness.

#ProTip: Try using the FR 5.56 in Single Fire mode. If you have a fast trigger finger, you might find better performance and control than the burst firing mode!
