Warzone: Is The FR 5.56 The New Meta? - JGOD Loadout Option

Has a new meta been born?

April 13, 2021

It looks like the FR 5.56 is set to become the new meta weapon in Warzone after popular Call of Duty YouTuber JGOD released an in-depth video on the weapon.

On April 12, JGOD (who has over 850,000 subscribers) uploaded a video titled “Single Fire FR 5.56 TTK is Insane in Warzone” and the internet lost its mind.

In case you haven’t watched JGOD’s new video, we’ve put the link in above. But if you’re just searching for the specific loadout that will become the new meta, we’ve got it right here in this article.


What Is The FR 5.56?

The FR 5.56 might be better known by classic Call of Duty players as the FAMAS.

The weapon was originally introduced way back in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and has reappeared in most Call of Duty titles since.

In Modern Warfare, the 2019 version, the FR 5.56 has a standard 30 round magazine and can be used as a three round burst or semi-auto fire weapon. The FR 5.56 is unlocked at level 16 in Modern Warfare, but is actually included in one of the default classes to be used immediately.

The weapon will kill in 3 shots anywhere to the body within 30 meters for a 1-burst kill. After 30 meters, the weapon will need at least 4 shots to kill an enemy, meaning 2 bursts are required if in three-round burst mode.

However, getting 1 bullet to the head lowers the gun to a 2 shot kill if it’s within 30 meters. Anything further than 30 meters with 1 headshot means it will be a 3 shot kill.

These statistics only apply to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019).

JGOD Single Fire FR 5.56 Loadout

So how does the classic weapon hold up in Warzone? Well, JGOD seems to think it will become the new meta when used as a single fire weapon instead of three-round burst.

Below, you will find the attachments needed to re-create JGOD’s FR 5.56 Loadout in Warzone.

  • BARREL: FR 24.4″ Sniper
  • AMMUNITION: 50 Round Mags
  • UNDERBARREL: Commando Foregrip
  • MUZZLE: Compensator
  • OPTIC: VLK 3.0x Optic

JGOD did point out that things like the optic are personal preference, but we decided to use the VLK 3.0x and found it to work very well.
