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.

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."

A Fama is a mythical creature with distant roots to the Llama.

Its fur varies in color from bright pink to neon blue. It secretes large quantities of cat urine inside its feet as a self defense mechanism against mythical predators. Naturally it need only defend itself from other mythical creatures because all normal creatures worship it as the God of all Flatulence.

Should you ever encounter one it is strongly recommend that you befriend it with a large explosion of personal bodily perfume.
Person 1: "Hey is that a llama!?"

Person 2: "No way man, that's a Fama! I recognize it's scent!"
