Modern Warfare 2 & Warzone 2 Season 5 brings some classic Call of Duty weapons to multiplayer and battle royale, and here’s how you’ll be able to unlock the FR Avancer Assault Rifle, better known as the FAMAS.
With hype ramping up for Modern Warfare 3 as the reveal approaches, Warzone and Modern Warfare 2’s Season 5 update brings the nostalgia. Alongside the fan-favorite Strike map from CoD 4, two classic Call of Duty weapons return.
Not only does the WA2000 Sniper Rifle arrive, but the popular FAMAS Assault Rifle, now called the FR Avancer, can be unlocked with the Season 5 update. Resembling both the FAMAS from Black Ops 1 and the FFAR from Cold War, the FR Avancer is set to be a powerful choice for both multiplayer and battle royale.
How to unlock FR Avancer in MW2 & Warzone 2
The FR Avancys resembles the FAMAS from Black Ops 1.
Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 Season 5’s Avancer Assault Rifle is unlocked for free through the Season 5 Battle Pass which goes live on August 2.
The exact Sector hasn’t been revealed yet, but it shouldn’t take too long to unlock. But don’t worry if you can’t reach it during Season 5, as it’ll then be unlocked through a challenge once the season ends.
The FR Avancer is a “fast-firing bullpup rifle” with “a blinding fire rate and exceptional maneuverability” that’s described as a “midrange behemoth that can neutralize targets quickly within a few dozen meters.”
The FFAR was a dominant Sniper Support weapon in the original Warzone, so expect it to fill that role once again when it arrives with the Season 5 update.
