The FFAR 1 Assault Rifle in Black Ops Cold War, is a call back to a familiar and popular Call of Duty weapon - the Famas.
While the weapon was quickly nerfed before it could really shine, it's slowly worked its way into the meta again and has become a popular choice in Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War.
This is due to its fast time-to-kill and versatility; often being praised as an SMG and Assault Rifle hybrid.
So what's the best FFAR 1 loadout in Cold War? Here is the best set of attachments and class.
FFAR 1 Setup
Unlocked at Level 40, the FFAR 1 is the final Assault Rifle to unlock in Black Ops Cold War.
Armed with an extremely high rate of fire and a quick reload speed, the rifle can put up a strong fight against SMGs at close range.
But with just 25 bullets in the magazine as standard, you may find yourself reloading more often than getting stuck into the action.
You'll want to adjust your setup to cover its weaknesses; high recoil and small magazine sizes.
FFAR 1 Best Attachments
- Quickdot LED (Optic)
- Muzzle Brake 5.56 (Muzzle)
- 20.3” Takedown (Barrel)
- Steady Aim Laser (Body)
- Infiltrator Grip (Underbarrel)
- SALVO 44 RND Fast Mag (Magazine)
- SASR Jungle Grip (Handle)
- SAS Combat Stock (Stock)
This combination of attachments turns the FFAR 1 into the perfect all-purpose rifle.
The choice of magazine increases the ammo capacity enough to reduce the need to reload on such a regular basis while the grip and stock increases aim walking movement speed by a whopping 80%.
The FFAR 1: The best AR in Black Ops Cold War?
If you're finding the weapon a bit too difficult to control, trying attaching the Field Agent Grip to reduce the vertical and horizontal recoil.
The Raider Stock is also a good option for those that want to speed up the sprint to fire time at the expense of some hip fire accuracy.
- Flashguard .45 APC (Muzzle)
- 5.63” Takedown (Barrel)
- Steady Aim Laser (Body)
- Fast Mag (Magazine)
- Speed Tape (Handle)
The 1911 pistol is extremely strong regardless of which attachments have been equipped.
This combination, increases hip-fire accuracy alongside an increase in aim down sight speed, enabling you to quickly react to an enemy when switching to a pistol is the best option.
It is extremely hard to evade a perfectly cooked frag grenade and there’s very few things more satisfying than scoring a kill after lobbing a grenade halfway across the map!
- Stun Grenade
When thrown at an opponent, stun grenades slow and disorient them which makes them easy pickings for the FFAR 1.
- SAM Turret
The SAM Turret automatically targets and fires missiles at any enemy scorestreaks in the air.
With this loadout lacking the ability to deal with any scorestreaks, the SAM Turret helps clear the skies and is a solid way of earning some additional score on top of playing the objective and scoring kills.
- Flak Jacket
By selecting these three Perks, it offers a solid balance when in amongst the action. Flak Jacket increases explosive resistance, Scavenger decreases the chance of completely running out of ammunition, and Ninja quietens footsteps when sprinting, allowing you to navigate the map and get behind enemy lines with ease.
