Acronym for "Fusil Automatique, Manufacture d'Armes de St. Etienne". The standard-issue French assault rifle of bullpup design, first put into production in the late 1970's, and later rechambered to comply with NATO standard 5.56 rounds.

The FAMAS is still in use today and is, in the submitter's opinion, one of the only decent products France has ever managed to produce.
"Holy shit, that guy has a FAMAS."

The noobiest gun on Ranbow Six Vegas 2. Players resort to the FAMAS when consistently losing matches and all other tactics have failed.
OMG. How in the heck did that guy just kill me? He was spraying all over the place. What do you expect? The noob is using the FAMAS.

(Fusil Automatique, Manufacture d'Armes de St. Etienne)

A French made assult weapon, uses a bullpup configuration and because of its apperance, French soldiers have nicknamed it "le Clairon" or "the bugle"
ze FA MAS is a good weapon yes?

the famas a gun using the bullpup design is a substantially accurate/powerful gun. While not as accurate as the m4 this is because of its sights which are of limited use due to the bullpup design. This gun is usually put down as an inferior weapon due to the fact that it is made by the French. These people are dipshits to the extreme. The FFA uses the famas and I myself served in the French foreign legion and I think that the famas is a beatifully working gun. Anyone who stereotypes the French or their weapons should go to France and join the legion to see what its really like
asswipe: dude the fucking famas sucks and so do the French

FFA leiutenant *slams the MOFO down and fires the famas into his leg with pinpoint accuracy

FFA leiutenant: Viva la france!!!!!

Some of the realest people alive. Strength in character and integrity. Good people, good times. Originates in southern Italy. Not only a last name, but also means fame or reputation.
The Famas could teach you a thing or two about life.

1. Acronym for Fusil d'Assaut de la Manufacture d'Armes de St-Etienne, or "Assault Rifle--St. Etienne Arms Factory".

The FAMAS is an assault rifle in use by French military and government units, notably the French Foreign Legion. It uses NATO standard 5.56mm bullets and comes in a variety of models and modifications. It is made in 'bullpup' configuration (imagine loading a magazine behind the handle and trigger .) Usually colored solid black and has a very futuristic/military look.

2. An assault weapon used in some video games, most notably CounterStrike and Metal Gear Solid. Also appears in some movies.
"When I play CS, I like to go as the GIGN. That includes all French guns. P90, FN, and that FAMAS thingy."

When a group of wannabe girls get together on a friday/saturday night. Usually consists of excessive and pointless snapchat stories, making healthy food that looks nice on Instagram but tastes shit and watching scary movies (by watching scary movies it means being on your phone messaging a pedophile on Kik).

However, Fama should not be confused with FAM, which is an organization of radical dudes doing radical shit. As said before, Fama is a wanna be girl get together.
"Hey Jennifer, you wanna come over to my place and make vegan cookies?"
"I'd love too! How about we invite all the other girls, and make sushi!"
"No, sushi is unhealthy, I heard that it lowers your chances of getting a thigh gap."
"I know what we can do! We can have a Fama!"
