— In-game description
Situations and Terrorist HuntEdit
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.
A Jack-of-All trades assault rifle with manageable recoil and a decent damage per bullet. The L85A2 performs well at mid to long range engagements, but is pretty average in close-range engagements due to its rate of fire.
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2
- The L85A2 uses the same firing sound as the AK-47 from the previous Vegas game, despite the difference in calibers of the two weapons.
- The rifle is incorrectly shown to have pistol-type sights when it should be modeled with a correct ghost-ring style rear sight.
- The weapon incorrectly holds 25 rounds out of a 30 round magazine. The "New Weapons" trailer correctly shown it to have 30 rounds, though.
- The L85A2's iron sights completely disappear upon mounting an optic to the weapon.
