Overview BF2 P4F BF3 BF4 Hardline

The FAMAS (Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Etienne, French for "Assault Rifle of the Saint-Etienne weapon factory") is a French-made assault rifle. Its development began in the late 60's during the Vietnam era and it is in wide usage within the French military today, adopted in 1978, as the service rifle of the French army. It uses a bullpup layout, and the F1 variant fires the 5.56mm NATO cartridge from a 25-round magazine, but the later G2 model can use 30-round NATO STANAG magazines.

The FAMAS appears in five installments of the Battlefield series. The FAMAS F1 appears in Battlefield 2. In all other games, the FAMAS is a mix of a few variants of the real-life FAMAS assault rifle. It uses the outdated 25-round magazine from older F1 / G1 variants, the updated and enlarged trigger guard present on the newer G1 / G2 variants, and the lowered carrying handle of the redesigned G2 used in the FÉLIN program.
