IRL FAMAS



Chosen as the standard-issue weapon by many military legions for its high reliability and accuracy, this assault rifle's bullpup design is widely recognizable.
  — Item Description 


The FAMAS is a French GP-Standard Assault Rifle that was introduced in the 11-12-08 Patch. Its name is an acronym of Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne.

Overview

Although it has below average damage per hit, the FAMAS is fast-firing and highly accurate. The FAMAS emits a distinct 'popping' sound when fired, which alerts nearby enemy players of the FAMAS user's presence and therefore will compromise the user's position when camping and/or sniping without a suppressor.

The FAMAS' recoil is rather high and the spread will increase very fast when the weapon is being sprayed. It is shown to have a wider reticle spread, similar but not as much as an AK-47,  in medium ranged, fast-paced combat. To compensate this, the FAMAS has a very fast spread recovery rate - when scoped in and tap-fired, the scope reticle will return to its original position at a much faster rate than any other gun. Its recoil pattern is straight upwards for around 8-12 rounds. Afterwards, it rocks side to side in groups of 2-3 rounds.

The FAMAS also sports a good portability rating and an average rate of fire.

  • In Combat Arms Europe, this weapon was handed out for permanent to players that logged in on 21 consecutive days during September 25th and October 23rd, 2013.

Trivia

  • The FAMAS is the second bullpup weapon to be released in the game.
  • The FAMAS is used by some players as a substitute for the M416, because of their similar stats, lower cost and rank requirement
  • If you look closely, you can see a pre-attached bipod on the FAMAS; however, it cannot be used in-game.
  • This gun, on screen, is actually smaller than some SMGs. Yet the portability is worse than those SMGs.
