According to recent findings by Twitch streamer NICKMERKS, the FFAR assault rifle has received a secret buff, transforming it into a scarily powerful weapon.
Despite some players already wanting Black Ops Cold War guns removed from Warzone, the FFAR has proven to be a monstrous addition. However, a new secret buff has been discovered which makes it even more powerful.
Call of Duty: Warzone FFAR Secret Buff
The FFAR is a very viable gun for players to use in Call of Duty: Warzone. The FFAR is already considered one of the most popular weapons at the moment.
The weapon provides a powerful balance between rate of fire and damage. However, the FFAR does suffer from some serious recoil issues which help to balance it.
Despite this, the gun remains one of the more popular Warzone weapon choices. Now a recent FFAR secret buff may propel the weapon to new and scary heights.
NICKMERKS has provided information on the secret buff to hit the FFAR. The buff is a direct copy of the recent stealth changes applied to Black Ops Cold War Weapons in the 1.11 update.
It appears that the Cold War guns added to Warzone have also received the same in-game treatment, and players have not been notified. Interestingly, the secret buff is to do with the weapons attachments, and not the FFAR.
NICKMERKS states with regards to the FFAR's secret buff: “In a recent update, Activision, Raven, whoever, they went in there and secretly made some adjustments, again".
Activision is no stranger to secretly implementing changes to their games. Sadly, fans have to delve deep to discover what has been changed without Activision's help.
NICKMERKS goes on to mention "I personally use the Ranger Barrel on the FFAR. they adjusted it and made it twice the bullet velocity, without anybody knowing.”
Call of Duty: Warzone FFAR Bullet Velocity Change
It appears that Activision has implemented some major changes to bullet velocity in the latest update. In fact, bullet velocity has received a complete rework which affects many of the Black Ops Cold War gun attachments.
The key to the FFAR secret buff is in the Ranger and Reinforced Heavy Ranger Barrel, Takedown, and Task Force barrel attachments. These attachments add a ton of bullet velocity to the already powerful FFAR.
Take a look at our Black Ops Cold War gun stealth changes to see in detail exactly what has changed. However, it appears that the FFAR with the correct barrel attachment is now an unstoppable killing machine.
