Now that 2021’s CDL season is over, OpTic Call of Duty pro Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has been dominating Warzone’s Verdansk. He “absolutely loves” the FARA 83 and Bullfrog, so here’s Scump’s Season 5 loadout.

We’re now in the Call of Duty League off-season and pro players are chewing through Warzone lobbies. OpTic Scump has returned to streaming and content creation and has already asserted his dominance in Verdansk.

Although not considered meta anymore, Scump has found great success with the FARA 83 Assault Rifle and Bullfrog SMG. Here’s why Scump “absolutely loves” these weapons and his loadout setups for each of them.

Scump believes that the FARA 83 and Bullfrog make up the “new best loadout in Warzone.” The FARA 83 was the go-to Assault Rifle in Season 4, but various nerfs have moved it down the pecking order. But surprisingly, the Bullfrog continues to grow in popularity, being the third most popular gun in the game.

“It’s not really meta at the moment, I’m aware of that,” explained Scump. “But for some reason, I absolutely love both of these weapons. The FARA is so versatile, it has a crazy, crazy fire rate and it has decent range on it. And then the Bullfrog has a long clip, you can get multiple kills with it in one clip, and I really like it for that reason.”

Using this off-meta Bullfrog and FARA 83 loadout, Scump drops an impressive 26 kills and over 10,000 damage. He concluded that “it’s just a fun class to use, especially if you’re going against some newbies and you’re farming.”

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
  • Barrel: 19.5″ Liberator
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Grip
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 60 Rnd

Scump’s FARA 83 is built purely for range, using the go-to setup for Cold War’s Assault Rifles. As you can see in his gameplay, this loadout almost eliminates any recoil, allowing him to laser enemies at long distances.

  • Muzzle: GRU Supressor
  • Barrel: 7.4″ Task Force
  • Laser: Tiger Team Spotlight
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip

For his Bullfrog, Scump built it purely for speed. With its already large magazine size, you can prioritize its attachment slots for speed and more range, and Scump used this loadout to finesse and take down full squads.

In the extremely open meta of Season 5, it’s well-wroth giving Scump’s FARA 83 and Bullfrog classes a try. You can also check out everything we know about Warzone and Cold War’s upcoming The Doors event and its rewards.
