"The British-made L85A2 is a bullpup design, meaning the magazine is located behind the trigger. This makes the weapon harder to reload, but has the benefit of increasing controllability without adding to weapon length."

— In-game description

The L85A2 is an assault rifle featured in Battlefield Hardline. It was originally only available by preordering the game through the Precision Battlepack but was later made available to all players with the release of the Battlefield Hardline: Robbery expansion, along with the ACWR and the CAR-556. It is equipped by default with an ACOG [4x].

The L85A2 is balanced primarily for medium or long range engagements, having a high muzzle velocity of 500 m/s unsuppressed, a controllable firerate of 675 RPM, and the lowest first shot multiplier of its class at 1.5, allowing for accurate fire downrange. The weapon's primary drawbacks are its slow reload times of almost 3 seconds with bullets remaining and slightly over 4 seconds with an empty magazine and its very high spread increase per shot at 0.9, the highest of any other assault rifle in the game. This encourages the L85A2 to be fired in single shots or short bursts; prolonged firing will cause the weapon's spread to increase tremendously and make it very ineffective at anything but close range where it will normally be beaten out by other weapons due to its slow rate of fire.

Because of its weaknesses with prolonged fire, the L85A2 functions well with attachments that compliment burst firing or prolong its accuracy. While the Angled Grip will make the L85's first shot more controllable and improve usage during tap-firing, the weapon arguable benefits most from the Stubby Grip as it significantly reduces the weapon's high spread increase per shot down to 0.45, allowing the L85A2 to remain more accurate during longer bursts. A Heavy Barrel will improve the weapon's spread and recoil while standing still, but will slightly increase spread while moving. Between the Compensator and Muzzle Brake, the rifle benefits more from the Muzzle Brake as it will receive a recoil reduction in all three directions, so although the Compensator will reduce vertical recoil more than the Brake, the L85 will kick significantly less horizontally, making it easier to remain on target with the Muzzle Brake. Optics are a matter of personal preference for the player, but as the L85A2 is intended for ranged use it can couple well with a 3.5x or 4x scope.
