I've unlocked it but I tried it out and its crap can't even get a kill but I'm wondering if I was to give it time and unlock stuff like sights and grip would it become a devastating weapon, love some feedback with experience.

I think that its better than the famas on long range, it deals the same damage and the fire rate is slower, but it is very accurate.

No, not in the slightest if you can use the FAMAS. I haven't found one area where the L85 beats the FAMAS.

the famas has less recoil an less spread and deals the same as the other AR's damage over range, so technically its the best. but i prefer the l85.

from the get go the Ironsights are easy to use and very accurate compared to the Squintin' midget. I've generally put down OpFors with a 5 round burst to the chest at medium range with the iron sight. I'm going to guess you dont like its low rate of fire compared to other ARs

with the heavy barrel, fore-grip and ACOG 4x it becomes a very versatile rifle you can hit enemies easily at 100 metres. and as long as you aim first from the hip before scoping for people >20m away its accuracy can put then down at the same pace as the FAMAS

to be honest about it, if your used to using the G3A3 then you wont have a single problem with the L85A2

RDS, fore grip and, depending on map or game mode, suppressor or heavy barrel.

Excellent medium and short range and I have found it to be more accurate (for me at least) than the AEK.

Unless you come up against someone with an AEK, M16, F2000, FAMAS, A91, HK53, USAS12, M4, M60, M240, M249, Type 88, MG36, M27 or a Jackhammer, you should be good to go.

Funny, in the last game played last night I was not killed by a single FAMAS. my deaths were mostly attributed to the AEK and the M249.

I'm not a good player... infact im pretty crap at this game, but the superior iron sights on the L85 meant that toe to toe I could get the bead on the opponent and put them down faster. though for the record Ive not have the privilege for going up against a Jackhammer yet.

I think your underestimating the L85A2's capabilities

I'm a big fan of the lower rof guns, probably because I tend to get a bit spray-happy. According to my stats I've got around 30% HK-kills with the L85 vs. 25% with the FAMAS. Although it pains me to see how superior the latter is on paper, and with a more conservative trigger finger, it would most likely dominate the L85 for me too.

But as with all guns, sometimes what's on paper doesn't matter, you just play better with a certain (inferior) gun for some reason.

Stick with it for one round then you will soon get the hang of it. Use the Iron sight untill you open the ACOG and when you get the foregrip the gun becomes even more competitive.

It's a beast IMO. I like it more than the famas. Can easily take down 3 opponents in one mag (yes I know ARs are capable of much more than that if you hit every bullet, but I'm talking about when you come across a squad of enemies in a real BF scenario). With the famas you'd be out of ammo before you could aim at the next guy and it takes a week to reload that thing.
