FR 5.56 is one of the best and yet trickiest assault rifles in Modern Warfare 3. This AR is a resemblance of Famas from the older Call of Duty games, and the brother of FR Avancer from MW2. Now while the Avancer is a fully automatic weapon, FR 5.56 fires burst shots, allowing for a quick one-tap kill if you have the best loadout with it in Modern Warfare 3 – MW3.
Best FR 5.56 Loadout and Attachments
- Muzzle: Silentfire XG6
- Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
- Ammunition: 5.56 Nato High Grain Rounds
- Comb: FR Anchor
- Optic: Aim OP-V4
The FR 5.56 is a weapon that fires burst shots, meaning that if you miss the first three shots, you might get killed facing an automatic gun wielder. So to prevent this bad luck, I’ve tested the 5.56 Nato High Grain Rounds, and it kills your target if you manage to hit all three rounds in each burst to your opponent. In fact, this ammunition allows for a mid-range single-tap kill. Without it, you’ll only be able to get single burst kills with the FR 5.56 in close range.
So first things first, pick the 5.56 Nato High Grain Rounds. Then, you’ll need precision to land your shots on target. For that, let’s pick the Silentfire XG6, allowing for recoil control and silent shots that are undetectable under the enemy’s radar. Now, let’s focus on the mobility stats of your weapon, and fix the ADS speed. The DR-6 Handstop underbarrel and FT Anchor rear grip are the best options in this manner, offering the least penalty on recoil. In the end, an Aim OP-V4 works the best if you’re not comfortable with FR 5.56 iron sights in this loadout in MW3. If not, go for a larger magazine size.
Secondary Weapon And Perks
Lethal and Tactical:
- Scatter Mine x2
Perks and Gear:
- Scavenger Gloves
- Covert Sneakers
- Mag Holster
- L/R Detector
Now that we have the best attachments to balance the power of FR 5.56 in this loadout, it is time to fill in the blanks of other equipment, perks, and gears in MW3. As the secondary weapon, one of the best options is that Renetti is a trustworthy ally. Here’s a good loadout with the quickdraw ability you can use beside your FR 5.56 in this loadout in Modern Warfare 3:
After that, you can pick the Engineer vest for having your fourth perk instead of lethal equipment. But don’t worry about losing a lethal, one because you’ll have two tactical equipment, and the Scatter Mine is just as powerful to stun and even kill the opponents!
Now for the perks, first we’ve got the gloves. Since you have the quickdraw ability on your pistol, you can skip the Quick Gloves and pick the Scavenger. This allows you to pick ammo from dead enemy bodies, and even skip using the Munition Box to have another useful field upgrade.
Then for the boots, you should definitely go for the Covert Sneakers to have the best FR 5.56 loadout in MW3. This perk is the Dead Silence field upgrade from Warzone, but permanent! And for the last two perks, you can have the Mag Holster for faster reload, and the L/R Detector to get notifications when the enemies are aiming at you from the rear or behind.
And that’s it for the best FR 5.56 loadout in Modern Warfare 3 – MW3. The FR 5.56 is an accurate weapon, and if you manage to land all three shots on your opponent’s upper body, you’ll be able to one-tap the opponents and beat the current MCW and Striker meta.
