The FFAR 1 assault rifle in Warzone once dominated the metagame thanks to its incredible rate of fire enabling it to be used in every scenario imaginable. The fast fire rate combined with the low recoil levels saw many players add it to their loadouts but since the Season 3 Reloaded update, it has fallen off in popularity.
Although it isn't the most popular weapon to be using in Verdansk or Rebirth Island, the FFAR 1 is still a viable choice with the right set of attachments equipped. With Season 5 Reloaded in full swing and with Raven Software regularly making changes to weapon performance, the FFAR 1 could well find its way back into the loadouts of players.
Here is the best loadout for the FFAR 1 in Warzone.
Best FFAR 1 Warzone Loadout
Taking after its predecessor, the FFAR 1 is armed with a ridiculously fast rate of fire for an assault rifle. The fire rate enables the FFAR 1 to excel in close-quarters scenarios but it can cause high levels of recoil, making it tricky to control.
Unlike its Cold War counterpart, the recoil is far less dramatic, meaning you can rank it up with ease to unlock all of the attachments that are on offer. The clear and crisp iron sight opens up an additional attachment slot, enabling plenty of combinations to suit various styles of play.
With a wide range of attachments to select in the Gunsmith, what exactly is the best FFAR 1 loadout for Warzone?
Use it as an SMG and you'll have people spawning in the Gulag faster than they can ask what attachments you're using! As it's an assault rifle, you can use it at medium ranges and maintain a high degree of accuracy.
Couple it with a sniper rifle and you'll be climbing aboard the victory helicopter in no time at all.
FFAR 1 Warzone Best Attachments
The FFAR 1 can be an absolute beast when outfitted correctly. Check out the list below for the best attachments you should be using.
- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.5" Task Force
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Magazine: STANAG 50 Rnd
- Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
This attachment combination makes the FFAR 1 arguably one of the most popular weapons to use in Season 5 despite the nerfs. The choice of muzzle and barrel improves damage range, making the FFAR 1 much more effective in mid-range combat.
As always, selecting a huge magazine enables you to score consecutive kills without having to reload which is much better than having to dip out of the action and reload.
Which Sidearm to Pair With the FFAR1
Just in case you need to switch to another weapon during a tense firefight you will want to make sure you have a decent sidearm. We've picked the Renetti, and detailed the best set up below:
- Muzzle: Desperado Pro Compensator
- Barrel: Mk1 Extended
- Laser: 1mW Laser
- Ammo: 27 Round Mags
- Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger
To further improve the mobility of this loadout, the Renetti pistol is a perfect choice. Armed with relatively high damage output, it can be a handy tool to strip an opponent of their armour before finishing them off with the fast-firing FFAR 1. You could also give the Diamatti a go, head here for info on setting it up correctly.
- Frag Grenade (Lethal)
- Flash Grenade (Tactical)
This combination of grenades may be used on a regular basis but that is because it is just so good!
It’s extremely difficult to avoid a frag that has been cooked to perfection and a well-timed flashbang is enough to confuse even the most experienced of players.
- Scavenger (Perk 1)
- Ghost (Perk 2)
- Battle Hardened (Perk 3)
Due to the fast fire rate of the FFAR 1, it is extremely likely that you will go through ammunition like it’s going out of fashion. Scavenger gives you the ability to replenish ammo from fallen players, reducing the likelihood of running out in the latter stages of a game.
Ghost will keep your location concealed from any UAVs while Battle Hardened will boost your resistance to any flash and stun grenades that are likely to be used to halt you on the way to the victory chopper.
Is the FFAR 1 Still Viable?
The short answer is yes. Thanks to the deadly rate of fire, ease of control, and incredible damage output, it's no surprise to see that the FFAR is up there as one of the strongest weapons to use in the entirety of Warzone. Despite the nerfs, I still think that the FFAR will remain as one of the best weapons in Warzone until the next wave of weapon balancing takes place.
