"Part of the SA80 family, the L85A2 is the standard assault rifle of the British Armed Forces."

— Battlelog description

The L85A2 is an assault rifle featured in the Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack. The weapon bears numerous similarities to the AK-74M in terms of handling, with the same rate of fire and similarly low recoil, but the L85A2 has a tendency to drift up and left rather than up and right, and is harsher in doing so than the AK-74M. Additionally, it has the highest spread recovery rate of all of the assault rifles. Like the F2000, it has the lowest spread of all full-auto assault rifles when aiming down the sights on the move, lower than M16A3 (1.0), though the L85A2's lower fire rate allows for more controllable automatic fire and conserve ammunition.

It can be unlocked by completing the Professional Russian assignment which was also included in the Back to Karkand expansion. The weapon shares the same unlocks and attachments as the other assault rifles, and like all other bullpup weapons not counting the AUG A3 it cannot accept the M26 MASS or M320/GP-30 as underslung attachments.

Battlefield Premium members have access to the A-TACS Tactical Camo for this weapon or the Berkut camo upon the completed the L85A2 Specialist assignment.



  • The mastery dogtag for the L85A2 lacks the front iron sights.
