The Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded update is finally here! Raven Software has released its content roadmap, which includes the start of the enigmatic limited-time event called "The Numbers", later this month. There is also a plethora of new additions, including new Warzone game modes: Iron Trials '84 and Clash, a new Operator, new melee weapon, Judge Dredd skin, bug fixes, and of course, weapon balance changes.
The FARA 83 evaded balance changes this season and remains on our S-Tier list of assault rifles to use in the game. After the Krig 6 received severe nerfs to its damage output, the FARA 83 now also claims the title of being the strongest and most broken assault rifle in Warzone. With that said, you'll want to get ahead of the game with this insanely overpowered gunsmith class setup for the FARA 83 for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded.
Best FARA 83 loadout for Warzone Season 5 Reloaded
The FARA 83 is expected to be a strong "long-range" meta weapon and has the lowest 2-headshot TTK out of all the assault rifles. Outperforming the Krig 6 and the QBZ-83 by a fair margin, you can expect players using the FARA 83 to wipe the floor in Verdansk. The only con with this weapon is its slow fire rate and reload speed but this is easily remediated with the right loadout.
The following loadout is derived from the iconic Warzone YouTuber "JGOD's" latest video.
- Muzzle: GRU Suppressor
- Barrel: 19.5" Liberator Barrel
- Optic: Axial Arms 3x
- Underbarrel: Spetznaz Grip *
- Ammunition: Spetznaz 60 Rnd
* You can either use the Spetznaz Grip Underbarrel attachment or swap it out for the Spetznaz Field Grip Rear Grip attachment.
The GRU Suppressor is an integral attachment, providing muzzle flash concealment and improved vertical recoil control. This attachment will come at the expense of bullet velocity, which can be attenuated with the other attachments in this build.
The 19.5" Liberator Barrel will make up for some of the FARA 83's slow fire rate by boosting bullet velocity whilst also providing additional 7% vertical recoil control.
The Spetznaz Grip will provide additional stabilization by buffing horizontal and vertical recoil control. This will, however, come at the expense of firing movement speed and ADS firing move speed.
Otherwise, you can go with the Spetznaz Field Grip to further increase the FARA 83's speed by buffing ADS time and flinch resistance, albeit at the minor expense of Sprint to Fire time.
Lastly, we've gone with the Spetznax 60 Rnd for additional ammunition capacity and the Axial Arms 3x Optic for magnification. Feel free to change the Optic to whichever is most preferential to you.
