L85 for purely looks and great iron sights. And BF2 nostalgia.

FAMAS just seems to be the best all around Assault gun though. High ROF, easy to control recoil, what's not to love? Oh yeah, the terrible iron sights.

Highest horizontal recoil for any gun in the game, combined with the highest RPM in the game. I would assume that it is pretty uncontrollable.

Add a foregrip and it's all good.
I'm allowed a signature, so here it is.

Only problem with the FAMAS is its horrible iron sights. It makes the AN-94's sights look amazing. Hands down the worst iron sights in the game now.

Only problem with the L85 is that you must play SDM to earn it.

FAMAS ironsights are a joke. IT completely blinds you and give u one pixel vision. So just spray and pray from the hip until u unlock a scope. Oh lol its the ACOG. Too much magnification - back to spray and pray from the hip. o.O

ACOG is horrible on pretty much everything that isn't semi-automatic.

^this

Famas gets quite good once you unlock Foregrip, RDS/Holo and Silencer.

Is it just me or is the L85A2 just a weaker version of the m416 in all aspects. It is slower, more recoil ...

I wish I could give my opinion on this subject but f***ing origin crashed and I couldn't continue my 5 hour marathon to attempt to win 5 SQDM games. I wanted to try this gun out since the announcement of the new weapons and when the day comes to work towards it everything goes down with no fix in sight.

But getting back on topic, the FAMAS is a pretty awesome assault rifle and is easily one of my favorites. Has decent range but nothing special and it really shines in close to mid-distance because of its high ROF and low recoil.

L85A2
ROF=650
All 3 fire modes
Long Range

FAMAS
ROF=900
All 3 fire modes
Long Range

Famas is a GREAT over all gun. Who cares that the iron sights are bad, use a red dot or one of the other 123498 scope unlocks. Get past the iron sight, add a KOBRA (RDS), Foregrip, and Flash Supp. and it'll handle beautifully and for all around will be one of the best guns for assault. I originally use the M416 and have over 1200 kills with it, but have been trying out all the guns. You have to remember that the accessories help incredibly.. for example fore grip can stop horizontal muzzle by 50%.

L85A2 is my current gun and I do not like it as much as FAMAS. It is much slower and bulkier. Because the rate of fire is slower it seems like it takes them longer to die but in actuality I feel this gun does slightly more damage than the famas but will take longer to kill the enemy because the huge decrease in ROF. < This interns mean that shooting long distances where your barely tapping the trigger ROF is not going to matter..distance and damage will. I love the FAMAS but it is almost too good of a gun and is over played. FAMAS = Good gun for noob. I play with the L85A2 because its a second unlock, also the gun itself, if you can get past the crappy handling, will end up being not too bad with all the accessories. I currently have on it HOLO, Foregrip, and Heavy Barrel. Best accessories for assault rifles in my opinion, all depends with the gun but for most, PK-A sight or a close up HOLO/KOBRA RDS ( depending on level) , Foregrip, and Flash Supp..

Famas is pretty sweet, only unlocked it late last night, it does have pretty bad iron sights but I think the PKP Pecheneg still wins the most awful Ironsights in the game trophy, I cant even see where i'm shooting there is so much gun in the way!

The thing is, if you aim at an enemy first and then aim down the sights, the iron sights aren't half bad. You shouldn't be looking down the sights all the time anyway, especially with the hipfire-murder-machine that is the FAMAS.

yup famas will be nerfed for sure. thats ridiculous. even the f2000 doesnt stand versus this gun.. its like a aek whit more accuracy.

FAMAS, at the first touch you will love it. but thats it. not acurate enough for me and too many bullet wasted under 2 sec. try to clear a area whit this xd.

L85A2, is a quite good gun too, between the m416 and the l85 i prefer the l85. less recoil. more accurate. maybe it got less rof but u dont waste bullet though. can kill 4 dudes whitout reload vs the FAMAS that require almost a reload to every 1-3 kill cause it shoot a ton of bullet under 0.5 sec.

Is it for you?

Do you like the SCARL-H ?

yes = L85A2
no = FAMAS

Do you like the A-91?
yes = famas
no = l85a2

Do you love wasting bullet on corpse?
yes = famas
no = l85a2

do you burst fire alot at long distance?
yes = famas
no = l85a2

are you noob?
yes = famas
no = l85a2

are you pro ?
yes = an-94 prepatch
no = famas
