— In-game description
Situations and Terrorist Hunt
In the CQC Basics Situation, the character plays as an SAS Recruit equipped with an L85A2 and a P226 Mk 25 as a sidearm. In both game modes, the White Masks will often wield this rifle in their numbers.
The L85A2 is the latest iteration of the SA80 family, which have been the standard issue service rifle of the British Armed Forces since 1987. Much like the Type-89, it's heavily based on the gas-operated ArmaLite AR-18 platform.
With an easily manageable recoil and a damage model that allows it to kill all Operator Armor types in three bullets, it performs well at mid to long range engagements, with its mediocre rate of fire being the main drawback.
- Low recoil
- Low rate of fire
- Lacks angled grip
- Like in Vegas 2, the L85A2's iron sights completely disappear when mounting a different sight. This shares the qualities of other weapons in-game.
