One of the new ARs to make its way into Warzone from MW3 is the FR 5.56, which is a burst rifle much like the DG-56. However, its exceptional accuracy at long ranges separates this weapon from others in the category.

So, if you’re wondering how to build the best FR 5.56 loadout in Warzone Season 1, here are all the attachments, Perks, and Equipment you need to equip.

Best Warzone FR 5.56 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor
  • Barrel: 600mm FR Longbore
  • Optic: Corio Eaglesye 2.5x
  • Underbarrel: Demo Cleanshot 40
  • Magazine: 60 Round Mag

To kick off the best FR 5.56 loadout in Warzone, we equip the VT-7 Spiritfire Suppressor which increases the weapon’s recoil control and bullet velocity while keeping you off the minimap during gunfights. Then, for the Barrel, we recommend using the 600mm FR Longbore, further increasing the bullet velocity along with damage range, which is essential for battle royale.

While running the Optic boils down to personal preference, we’ve gone with the Corio Eaglesye 2.5x, giving you a clean zoom and minimal visual recoil. Next, the Demo Cleanshot 40 significantly improves the aiming idle sway, allowing you to land your shots a lot better with this relatively slow-firing AR. 

Finally, the 60 Round Mag will enable you to stick around during long gunfights and potentially wipe entire squads.
