The FFAR is a beautiful and deadly assault rifle on its own but getting your hands on a blueprint will show just how powerful it is. When it comes to blueprints the FFAR certainly has a lot to choose from and you will want to make sure that you use the best blueprints in order to stay competitive. The assault rifle is a classic weapon that goes hand in hand with any shooter game and Warzone is no different. The FFAR is an excellent choice among assault rifles due to its fast fire rate and quick reload speed. While it only deals modest damage and has a slightly low ammo capacity, the right attachments can not only fix these minor issues but also maximize what the FFAR already does well. If you want to do some more research before settling on a blueprint you can always check out streamers and see what they think.
The Bastion is an epic blueprint available in the Heavy Cover bundle in season 1 of Warzone. This baby was practically invented for you to stand your ground and defend your position. This is largely in part to the attachments included with the blueprint. It comes equipped with the Diamondback Reflex which is a nice little sight that will help you spot your foes. The Suppressor will reduce muzzle flash and help you stay hidden as you pick these foes off. Next is the SOF Target Designator which increases reveal distance to further aid in spotting your enemies. Last but not least is the Patrol Grip which will increase sprinting move speed allowing you to relocate positions should you happen to be spotted.
Not all who wander are lost but that doesn’t mean you don’t need this blueprint in your life. The Wanderlust is an epic blueprint in the Frequent Flyer bundle in season 1 of Cold War Warzone.

Keeping with the theme of predators the Maneater comes equipped with the Kobra Red Dot and while it doesn’t add an actual snake to the rifle the red dot sight is still a nice addition.

Each of these blueprints are solid choices and in the right hands can all be equally deadly. While some may be objectively better, it ultimately comes down to what feels right to you. While they all are modifications of the FFAR the attachments that come with these blueprints can make each of these choices feel and handle differently. Therefore, it would be a great idea to try out each one until you find the blueprint that works best for you. You can also supplement your arsenal by stopping at supply stations as well. As you use each one and get a feel for the attachments and playstyle you will figure out what play style works best for you and which blueprint will maximize your efficiency. If you truly want to maximize your style you could even match your blueprint to the operator skin you use to look as stylish as possible.
