Best FR 5.56 Loadout in Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone

FR 5.56 is another 3 round burst machine, but better than the others?

Three-round-burst assault rifles are taking MW3 and Warzone by storm during Season 1, all in the name of the DG 58, but today we are looking at its closest neighbor; the FR 5.56. Here we detail the best FR 5.56 loadout to dominate both Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone.

Best FR 5.56 Attachments

The FR 5.56 is comparable to the DG 58, Warzone’s META weapon right now, but falls short on both accuracy and damage. That isn’t to say that the FR 5.56 is completely useless as it has a devastating TTK and can rip through an entire squad with ease. Thanks to Activision, these 3-round burst weapons have been getting a lot of love and we hope some of the old dogs like the M16 get the same treatment.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: 600MM FR Longbore
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Heavy Support Grip
  • Optic: Corio Eagleseye 2.5X
  • Magazine: 60 Round Magazine

First up, we use the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor to keep us off the Tac Map and to increase our range so we can hit longer shots. The 600MM FR Longbore gives a massive boost to damage range that will be dearly needed when contending with META weapons. Moving to the underbarrel, we use the Bruen Heavy Support Grip to offer some recoil stabilization and accuracy.

Top top it off, we use the Corio Eagleseye 2.5X for an incredibly clean sight that can help with longer shots and the 60-round magazine for drawn-out fights.

Best FR 5.56 Perks

Here we are going to list perks that can be used generally across all of Warzone and not specifically for the FR 5.56. These are optimal perks that have brought us success, but feel free to swap out for your preference.

The best perks are as follows:

  • Perk 1: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 2: Double Time
  • Perk 3: Temepered
  • Perk 4: High Alert

When you’re out of ammo in both weapons, Sleight of Hand will make sure you’re ready and waiting for enemy squads, increasing your reload speed by a large margin. Double Time is a must-have for those who want to put boots on the ground and cross large sightlines in record time. Tempered is an interesting perk, letting you plate up to full HP 33% quicker and can catch enemies off-guard.

Finally, High Alert is an unsung hero in the new Warzone, offering you information on enemy positions and protecting your life when it matters the most.

Best FR 5.56 Attachment

The FR 5.56 is a decent weapon that suffers from the success of its counterparts. The MCW and SVA 545 dominate the traditional AR class, while the DG 58 is a superior 3-round-burst weapon. That being said, we can bring the FR 5.56 to a good standing where it can perform against the best with some choice attachments.

The best attachments are as follows:

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Underbarrel: Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip
  • Read Grip: RMT Grip
  • Optic: MK. 3 Reflector
  • Magazine: 45 Round Mag

We start with the Spiritfire Suppressor to increase our damage and range, and keep us off the mini map through a large tactical bonus. The Bruen Pivot Vertical Grip comes in to solidify our accuracy, recoil, and bullet spread at the expense of some handling.

To counteract this, we use the RMT Grip to keep the FR 5.56 competitive with the fast-paced environment of multiplayer. Finally, the MK. 3 Reflector is a clean sight, and the 45-round mag keeps us in the fight as long as possible.

Best FR 5.56 Perks

The FR 5.56 is a standard assault rifle that will need perks to increase its mobility to match the high pace of a multiplayer match. Fans will notice that perks aren’t coming in the same package as they once did though. Instead, they are now available in the form of individual body armor that gives you bonuses and abilities.

The best Perks are as follows:

  • Vest: Infantry Vest
  • Gloves: Quick Grip Gloves
  • Boots: Climbing Boots
  • Gear: Tac Mask

We start off with the Infantry Vest to sprint across maps without worrying about our soldier getting a little tired. To continue to keep our loadout mobile and to match pace with SMG players we must slip on our Quick Grip Gloves to ensure we can draw our secondary at high speeds. Swapping to our pistol amidst a gunfight can be the choice between life and death.

Next up we have our Climbing Boots. They’re useful for players who want to access a new level of verticality while running rampart in a lobby, and come with the plus of negating all fall damage.

Finally, the Tac Mask protects our retinas from the constant flashbang spam that can leave us hating every second of a match.
