Oops! Turns out that after a recent update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a certain underpowered shotgun suddenly became a controversy taking the Warzone by storm. This issue is likely short-lived, as developer Infinity Ward is aware of it and has said as much. But for now, if you want to climb the ranks of Modern Warfare at the cost of your moral foundations and possibly friendships, you can dominate the game with the FAMAS Shotgun.
Accidentally Busted FAMAS Shotgun Guide for Call of Duty: Warzone
The long and short of the matter, is that the FAMAS shotgun used to be a super underpowered weapon in the grand scheme of things. But thanks to the recent update, a bug or miscalculation of some sort has made one of its underbarrel attachments a handheld weapon of mass destruction. With this one (temporary) trick, you can alienate your friends and make enemies by one-shotting your opponents from a distance with a mediocre shotgun.
If you’re one of video game history’s greatest monsters and have no qualms against taking advantage of this situation while it lasts, there are ways to enhance the FAMAS shotgun to make the most of its sudden, unearned dominance. You will be able to absolutely destroy any other player, no matter how much armor they have, due to the ludicrous damage and range the glitch has afforded the FAMAS. Like many other gun loadouts in Modern Warfare, you’ll be starting off with the Monolithic Suppressor attachment. You don’t want people knowing where you are more than necessary. From there you want the FR Sniper barrel, the Stippled Grip Tape, and the 60 Round Mag. These improve the number of shots you get, your range, and control over the weapon.
Now for the most important part. For the underbarrel attachment, you need the 12-Guage Deputy. Whatever is going on with this glitch, you’ll be taking out other players with the bare minimum amount of effort. You can just point and shoot, and barely even consider aiming. The only drawback is that if you choose this cursed strategy, you won’t be able to replenish your ammo. So eventually, you’ll be forced to play fair. Of course this issue's time is limited, so if you miss the party consider this piece a historical document.
