Best FARA 83 loadout and class setup in Warzone

The FARA 83's best loadout.

The FARA 83 came into Warzone for Season 2, and you can still unlock it through various means. A fast-firing Assault Rifle, the FARA 83 boasts some really solid range values, keeping its damage output strong for good players. If you’re planning on using this gun, here’s our best FARA 83 loadout in Warzone.

The FARA 83 used to be available through the Season 2 Battle Pass, but now that's gone and we're onto pastures new, you have to go through a bit of a hassle to get it. Check out our page on how to unlock the FARA 83 for more info on it!

Best FARA 83 loadout in Warzone

In this guide, I’ve got a couple different builds for you.

Best ranged FARA 83 loadout

First, I've picked out an attachment combination that’ll work at range, rivalling the likes of the Grau 5.56 and M4A1. I’ve gone for attachments that’ll reduce the recoil magnitude somewhat, as with its fire rate you can struggle to handle the horizontal and vertical recoil combined. Like most Assault Rifles, I’ve whacked on a barrel to help with damage range, as well as the Agency Suppressor which is essential for staying off the radar when firing. Here’s the best attachment combination for the FARA 83:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor (Level 46)
  • Barrel: 15.5” Contour (Level 21)
  • Stock: KGB Pad (Level 54)
  • Underbarrel: SFOD Speedgrip (Level 50)
  • Ammunition: Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag (Level 51)

Like I said, the Agency Suppressor is brilliant at helping you suppress the sounds coming out of your weapon. Without it, you’ll light up like a christmas tree on the enemy radar, making you an absolute sitting duck for getting taken down.

The 15.5” Contour barrel makes up for any losses in bullet velocity and damage range from other attachments. You want to be keeping damage levels constant across all kinds of ranges, so this barrel is your best bet for that.

Grab yourself a KGB Pad stock to help with your mobility big time. Your movement speed while aiming will be faster, as well as your sprint-out time, at the cost of your hip fire accuracy. You won't be spraying from the hip too often anyway though, so it isn't a big deal.

Like most Warzone guns, you’ll want to maximise your ammo capacity, and the Salvo 60 Rnd Fast Mag is your best option for this despite its slight penalty in ADS time. Your fast reloads mean you’ll be able to keep peppering foes regardless of how many shots you miss (with me it’s a lot).

Finally, I’ve chucked on a SFOD Speedgrip to further bolster the FARA 83’s accuracy and recoil control. Horizontal recoil is the toughest to control, so mitigating this is a great way to help your accuracy at range. Sprint speed is important too, so you'll enjoy the slight boost here. Until you unlock this though, the standard Foregrip is a sound choice.

Best close-range FARA 83 loadout

An alternative to the long-ranged build of the FARA 83 is this one, which works more like an SMG. It's actually my favourite way to run the gun at the moment. Here are the attachments to go for with this loadout:

  • Muzzle: GRU Suppressor (Level 46)
  • Barrel: 14.8” Ultralight (Level 4)
  • Stock: KGB Skeletal Stock (Level 54)
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap (Level 44)
  • Ammunition: Spetsnaz 50 Rnd (Level 34)

From the KGB Skeletal Stock to the Serpent Wrap, this gun is made to get you round the map fast and kill close-up enemies with ease. Combine that with the lightning-quick strafing you gain from the 14.8" Ultralight barrel and this thing could replace an SMG any day.

Secondary weapon

If you’ve gone for the Overkill perk, I like using this alongside an SMG. This’ll give you the versatility required in close-range encounters you might otherwise struggle with. My favourite is the MAC-10 but there are all kinds of alternatives. The MP5 or ISO is always a decent choice. Basically, you’ll need a gun that can shred enemies who flank you. Check out our specific loadout guides for more info on these weapon choices.

Of course, with the close-ranged loadout, pairing it with a CR-56 AMAX or Kar98k could be excellent options, covering the longer ranged encounters you'll get yourself into.

If you aren’t fancying Overkill, then make sure you use the Ghost perk to further keep you off the enemy radar. Along with this, I like the JOKR launcher, as it can lock onto enemy vehicles and take them out when they least expect it.

Best FARA 83 loadout with Perks and Equipment

Here’s the best Perks and Equipment for your loadout. For the FARA 83 specifically, I’ve gone for the following:

  • Perk 1: EOD
  • Perk 2: Overkill/Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: C4
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

EOD is often an absolute lifesaver when it comes to survival in the Warzone. If you find yourself getting jumped by sudden mountains of Claymores lying around, this perk is a great way to block a load of the incoming damage. The same is true when cars are exploding left, right, and centre which seems to happen a lot in Verdansk.

Amped is a great choice for swapping weapons quickly, especially if you happen to be using the JOKR. That super fast reload speed is a really nice quality of life improvement.

The C4 is the best tactical for Warzone, despite its throw distance nerf. It can blow up most vehicles in one strike, giving you a get out of jail free card when an enemy squad is barrelling into you in their Tac Rover.

Finally, I’ve put a Heartbeat Sensor on this class. With a lot of people running Overkill, you’ll want to hit up the Heartbeat Sensor to pick off enemies who don’t use Ghost. Keep in mind that this is more useful in quads or trios - solo players are much more likely to stay off the radar alone.

There you go! Get on that FARA 83 and let us know what you think! Check out some more of our Warzone guides too - this season is shaping up to be a great one. We have a best Warzone guns guide, as well as all the War Tracks you can play in your vehicles in Warzone.
