All the initial noise around the integration of Black Ops Cold War's weapons was based around the overpowered submachines the Mac-10 and MP5, and the DMR marksman rifle.
However, from a slow start, it is the FFAR bullpup assault rifle that has taken centre stage in the Warzone meta. Now one of the most-picked weapons, this AR has the nimbleness and fire rate of an SMG coupled with the punch of a full-size rifle.
With the right attachments and loadout you can take the gun even further helping mitigate against its two major drawbacks - its recoil and ridiculously high RPM which will see you empty your mag quicker then you can say "he's over there!".

- Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
- Barrel: 21.2" Ranger

Okay so let's tackle the high RPM/low clip issue because that is easy. The best thing for that is the Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag - plentiful rounds while keeping reload times down. Perfect.
The Agency Suppressor is also key, helping control the vertical recoil whilst also keeping you off the mini-map. However, it must be noted that the Agency Suppressor has been "nerfed" in Season 2, in so much as it now affects Cold War weapons they way it should which includes the FFAR. That means attaching this will massively affect the bullet velocity and thus the affective range of the weapon. The benefits, at the moment, look to outweight the negatives but in time there may well be other options or opting to go without a Suppressor entirely.
To help with the low velocity of the FFAR which essentially means less damage output and range with each bullet the 21.1" Ranger is just the ticket.
We round out this loadout with the Bruiser Grip, which will help with recoil but also lighter than other Grips and thus maintaining some mobility. The Raider Stock makes you a more nimble customer by reducing the Sprint to Fire time helping you bob and weave your way through Verdansk.
