The FR Avancer is a brand-new weapon added with the Modern Warfare 2 Season 5 update. Here’s the best loadout for the FR Avancer including attachments, Perks, and Equipment in Modern Warfare 2.

While the FR Avancer may be new, it’s sure to be a familiar sight to anyone who’s used the FAMAS in Black Ops or the FFAR in Black Ops Cold War. As for stats, Season 5‘s Assault Rifle is quite well-received due to its high fire rate, moderate damage range, good handling, and time-to-kill (TTK) values.

The FFAR is often considered to be one of the best Assault Rifles in Cold War, and the Avancer is already on its way to replicate that in Modern Warfare 2. While its base stats reflect a close-to-medium damage range, it is possible to tweak the AR to make it effective for long-range combat.

Here are the best attachments, Perks, and Equipment for the FR Avancer Assault Rifle in Modern Warfare 2 Season 5.

Best Modern Warfare 2 FR Avancer loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: FTAC Castle Comp (+0.44, +0.15)
  • Underbarrel: Edge-47 Grip (+0.59, +0.15)
  • Laser: FSS OLE-V Laser (-0.31,-21.39)
  • Rear Grip: SA ION (-0.48, -0.12)
  • Magazine: 45-Round Mag

We’re starting off our Best Modern Warfare 2 FR Avancer loadout with the FTAC Castle Comp Muzzle which assists in reducing both horizontal and vertical recoil. Next, we’ve got the Edge-47 Grip as our underbarrel attachment. This maximizes our Aiming Idle Stability and Recoil Stabilization values, further making the FR Avancer a no-recoil beast of a gun.

Our next pick is the FSS OLE-V Laser, which helps speed up our Aim Down Sight value while increasing the gun’s Aiming Stability and the very important Sprint to Fire Speed value. A drawback of this laser attachment is that your gun’s laser will be visible while aiming down sights. However, this is a small price to pay considering all the pros this attachment brings to the loadout.

Our final two picks for the FR Avancer are the SA ION Rear Grip and the 45-Round Mag. The former helps make the gun’s recoil significantly more controllable, allowing you to win long-range engagements, while the 45-Round Mag makes sure you get a few extra shots in before having to retreat to reload.

Best Modern Warfare 2 FR Avancer Perks & Equipment

  • Base Perk 1: Double Time
  • Base Perk 2: Overkill
  • Bonus Perk: Resupply
  • Ultimate Perk: High Alert
  • Lethal: Drill Charge
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenade

Double Time is among the best Base Perks for your FR Avancer loadout in Modern Warfare 2 Season 5, as it doubles your tactical sprint duration, making getting around each map faster. We also recommend Overkill to run a secondary weapon, but Battle Hardened couldn’t hurt if you want to run around while dispatching enemies.

Resupply is quite helpful as a Bonus Perk, as it keeps regenerating both Equipment slots and Field Upgrades. Considering the crucial role played by equipment when pushing players and moving around the map, having constant access to your equipment is quite effective.

As for the Ultimate Perk, High Alert is a great choice, as it provides free intel by highlighting the direction of enemy players aiming at you from uncovered angles. With Modern Warfare 2’s short TTK, this is one of the few ways to give yourself enough time to react before being eliminated.

Finally, the Drill Charge is great against campers and enemies around corners and the Smoke Grenade is good when using thermal optics or to cross over sections of the map and evade snipers.

Best FR Avancer alternatives in Modern Warfare 2

Many players might not prefer the FR Avancer as their latest AR pick for Modern Warfare 2. If that’s the case, the Tempus Razorback is a great alternative due to its similar damage profile. The AR also received a buff on July 24, which increased its minimum damage and limb multipliers.
