How to Get Famas Shotgun Attachment in Modern Warfare
What you need to do to get this incredible Famas is unlock and equip the 12 Gauge Deputy attachment.
It is in the underbarrel section of the attachments and isn’t unlocked until you reach weapon level 49 with the FR 5.56. You’ll have to play with it for quite a while to unlock it, but you can jump into multiplayer with 2X weapon XP tokens activated to level up quickly.
Once you’ve unlocked the 12 Gauge Deputy shotgun attachment for the Famas, simply equip it instead of a foregrip and jump into a match. You’ll then just need to press left on the d-pad if you’re playing on console (B on PC) to use it.
You’ll see your reticle get bigger and your character turn the weapon onto its side slightly. All that’s left to do is point it at an enemy and shoot. Get to grips with the recoil and you’ll be ripping through entire squads in no time.
However, you probably won’t be able to take advantage of the overpowered Famas shotgun attachment for very long. Infinity Ward has said that they’re aware of the issue and plan to patch it. All you can do is make the most of it while you can.
