Playing as a counter-terrorist, Famas is your best option in semi-buy rounds. Here is a list of the best-looking FAMAS skins in Counter-Strike 2.
In Counter-Strike, the economy plays a vital role in winning a match. Therefore, the game offers weapons for every economic situation. You may want to go with your best rifle and the utilities whenever you have a proper buy. For less money, you may go with SMGs or even a pistol like the Desert Eagle. But in both the CT-s and T-s, an exclusive rifle exists between these situations. For the Counter-Terrorist side, it is called Famas.
The Famas is a Counter-Terrorist exclusive rifle in CS2. It is a bullpup assault rifle that MAS designed and produced in France. The in-game version is modeled initially after the Famas G1. This weapon can fire in two modes: fully automatic or 3-round burst. The firing mode can be switched using the secondary fire button, just like Glock-18.
Compared to standard rifles, the Famas has a low damage output. On the other hand, it also costs less. This makes the gun a perfect alternative to the M4A4 or M4A1-S whenever you are short on money and prefer to buy full utilities.
The Famas might be less sought-after than other rifles. However, this doesn’t mean it has fewer skins to offer than any other weapon in CS2. If you want to replace your default Famas skin with a colorful one, this article can help you.
