The weapon fires very fast and often takes enemy terrorists out with only a few well placed shots to the chest area and above. As a result of the fast rate of fire, players may often find themselves reloading often with this weapon. The FAMAS also has a limited 25 round magazine, besides other rifles holding a 30 round magazine. Players have to watch for ammunition as well, since this is a weapon that Terrorists never actually use.
