FR 5.56 Camo Challenges & Tips in MW3

Shane Williams

The FR 5.56 is one of the new Assault Rifles added to Modern Warfare 3 which is a choice for those who prefer to have long-range gunfights due to its high accuracy stat. Every Weapon in MW3 has a bunch of challenges to complete in order to earn cool-looking Camos. If you’re wondering what the FR 5.56 challenges are, then this page will tell you everything you need to know.

Here is a look at the FR 5.56 Camo Challenges and tips on how to complete each one.

FR 5.56 Camo Challenges in MW3

The FR 5.56 Camo Challenges are as follows:

Challenge Requirement
Base Camo Challenge 1 50 Kills
Base Camo Challenge 1 50 ADS Kills
Base Camo Challenge 3 15 Headshot Kills
Base Camo Challenge 4 25 Tac Stance Kills
Gilded Camo Challenge Three Kills with One Magazine x10
Forged Camo Challenge 20 Operator Kills with 1 Burst Fire
Priceless Camo Challenge 15 Headshot kills with a Magnification Scope.
Interstellar Camo Challenge Complete all other weapon challenges.

FR 5.56 Challenges Tips in MW3

There are eight challenges available for the FR 5.56, but all the following base challenges are the same for all Assault Rifles: Get 50 Kills, Get 50 ADS Kills, 15 Headshot Kills, and 25 Tac Stance Kills. We recommend that you level the weapon up enough so you have the challenges unlocked, then you should be able to complete the majority of them together which will save a lot of time. You’ll now want to make sure you’ve got a reticle equipped that helps make your shots more accurate. For me that was the Cronen Mini Red Dot, then you’ll want to ADS and raise your reticle higher in every gunfight to increase the chance of bagging a headshot.

You’ll now need to get 25 Tac Stance Kills which is probably the trickiest out of the four base challenges if you aren’t an aggressive player, as using Tac Stance will reduce your bullet spread and increase your mobility which means you’ll need to be fighting enemies up close. We don’t recommend you do this on large maps, such as Derail and Wasteland, etc as using this stance makes long-range kills nearly impossible so you’ll find yourself dying before you can close the gap, so you’ll want to hold off on this challenge until you find yourself on maps like Rust and Favela.

FR 5.56 Gilded Camo Challenge and Higher Mastery Level Challenges in MW3

Once you’ve completed the four basic camos you’ll move on to the FR 5.56 Gilded Camo Challenge which requires you to kill three players with one magazine which is best done in the Hardcore Mode due to the reduced health and play more defensively to decrease your chances of getting killed. You’ll also want to equip the largest magazine possible so you don’t have to burst fire. Upon completion of the FR 5.56 Gilded Camo Challenge, you’ll need to unlock the Gilded Camo for the remaining five Assault Rifles before you can move onto the FR 5.56 Forged Camo Challenge..

Next up, you’ll need to use the Burst Fire Mode and kill an operator with a single burst fire 20 times. Again, you’ll want to do this in the Hardcore Mode as one burst will easily take down the opponent as long as you don’t miss your shots. You’ll now need to obtain the Forged Camo for all 36 Weapons before you can finally move onto the Priceless Camo Challenge which requires you to get 15 Headshots with a Magnification Scope, such as the SL TRUEESIGHT 2.5X. With this equipped jump into TDM and find a place with a height advantage and pick people off from a distance.
