The FAMAS is an unlockable Assault Weapon. It has the lowest Recovery in its class and is the only model capable of firing point-blank. Its one drawback is that it has the lowest maximum Range of all Assault Weapons.
Its usefulness is debatable, but in some circumstances such as the enemy attempting a melee approach, or an enemy Spy in the wave, it can save time that would be wasted by backing away and disrupting the formation.
- Visually resembles the PP-19 Bizon, which is in fact a submachine gun. The in-game name belongs to a completely different firearm, see FAMAS.
