PUBG is still going strong after its release back in 2017, which kicked off the wave of battle royale games that have informed mainstream gaming for over half a decade. Since then, it's received many changes, ranging from new maps and weapons, like the FAMAS, to big balance changes and new mechanics.

So, check out our primer on how to get the FAMAS in the game. 

How do you get the FAMAS?

The devs confirmed that the FAMAS won't be discovered among normal loot, meaning you'll need to go out of your way to acquire it. It will be available on every map, but you can only find it in care packages, secret rooms, keycard rooms, lab camps, supply drops, and pillar boxes, similar to the other power weapons.

The FAMAS is a French-made assault rifle that's highly versatile and quite a powerful weapon. Here are its main stats:

  • Ammo - 5.56
  • Damage per shot - 39
  • Effective range - 4000 meters
  • Rate of fire - 900 RPM
  • Fire modes - Single fire, burst, and full auto

Despite how hard the weapon is to find, the ammo and attachments for it are much easier to come across when looting normally. We suggest grabbing the FAMAS whenever you can, as its stats make it out to be one of the best ARs in the game.
