The Season 3 update for Warzone looked to have nerfed the FFAR Assault Rifle a great deal, but NICKMERCS recently revealed the loadout he is using for the Black Ops Cold War weapon that he believes still makes it a great choice for players to use.
Season 2 of Warzone was dominated by the FFAR, as the rifle’s high rate of fire, quick mobility, and high level of damage allowed it to be an unstoppable force on Verdansk.
The domination of the FFAR led to some significant nerfs be applied to it when Season 3 began in the Call of Duty battle royale in an effort by the developers not to have it be the only choice for players if they wanted to have a strong chance of winning.
While the FFAR is no longer the unstoppable force it once was, NICKMERCS recently revealed his latest loadout for the weapon.
He states that it would be in his “back pocket” if he played a tournament tomorrow, and we all know tournaments are when players only use weapons they believe give them the best chance of victory.
NICKMERCS FFAR Warzone Loadout
- Muzzle: Flashguard 5.56
- Barrel: 19.5″ Task Force
- Laser: None
- Optic: None
- Stock: Raider Stock
- Underbarrel: None
- Ammunition: STANAG 50 Rnd
- Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
One of the biggest changes of the Season 3 Warzone FFAR loadout that NICKMERCS used in his YouTube video on April 28, 2021, compared to the dominant FFAR loadout in Season 2, is the use of the Flashguard 5.56 muzzle attachment instead of the Agency Suppressor.
NICKMERCS goes on to state that in his mind, this Assault Rifle will always be around unless the developers apply an incredibly drastic nerf to it, as the strafe speed and damage of the FFAR is still viable enough for NICKMERCS to be more than willing to use it as a loadout in a tournament.
The streamer went on to secure a victory with 15 kills using this class, so it looks more than suitable as a weapon choice for players looking for a strong secondary to use in close-quarters battles.
