Unlocked after beating the game on Nightmare difficulty.

A rifle manufactured in France fed with 30 rounds of 5.56 mm NATO. It has unlimited ammunition reserve and does moderate damage per round with a high fire rate.


  • Unlimited ammo
  • Good rate of fire
  • 16 damage per hit compared to Glock's 13


  • Difficult to acquire in the first place, as Nightmare mode is highly challenging
  • Excessive muzzle flash blinds the player
  • Infinite ammo & high recoil promotes disregard for aim, leading to poor accuracy grade
  • Whipping with it drains a small amount of stamina
  • French

Simon picking up the FAMAS for the first time


  • The FAMAS is a French bullpup assault rifle first introduced in 1981 that fires .223 (5.56 mm) rounds, the FAMAS is still the stock service rifle used by the French military.
  • The variant accessed in game is the newest version, the FAMAS G2 developed in 1994, improved to allow it to fire NATO ammunition without modification, as well as improvements to the rifling to make the gun more accurate, and a larger trigger guard.
  • The FAMAS G2 is commonly used by the French navy, however the French army still use the F1, a slightly older variant.
  • FAMAS stands for "Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne", meaning "Assault Rifle from the Saint-Étienne Weapon Factory".
  • Simon exhibits disgust at the weapon being French. Merely picking it up causes him to gag.
