The L86A2 Light Support Weapon (LSW), known in-game as the L86A2, is a bullpup DMR added in v0.8.3 "The perks of being a survivr" update that uses 5.56mm Ammunition.



  • The use of this weapon is similar to the Mk 12 SPR. The L86A2 has a bigger magazine and does more damage than it while having a slightly slower fire rate.
  • Using this weapon at a long-range with a good scope like the 8x is deadly, as you can dodge out of your opponents' scope and also pick people off easily.


  • This is one of the most powerful weapons in-game as it could shred an unarmed player in seconds, so try to avoid users of it as much as possible if you are a beginner.
  • Using a powerful sniper rifle like the AWM-S or the Mosin-Nagant at long range will work if you are an experienced user with good aim.
  • The M1 Garand's higher DPS and accuracy can beat the L86A2 faster. The SVD-63 can also work, but it is harder because the DPS is lower.
  • Getting up close with a Shotgun or a high damaging SMG is also a good alternative, due to their high damage.
    • Melee Weapons for the same reason are also very effective, as the barrel of the L86A2 will miss the target as you attack them at very close range.
  • Moving erratically while attacking them is a single shot, and most of their shots will be guessed.
  • Try to stay as far away from them as possible while attacking because the closer you are, the higher the chance of them hitting you.
  • Move-in a zig-zag pattern to lower their changes to hit you, and either uses a high-damage or high fps SMG or your Melee to kill them, as the weapon is long and you can dodge under it.

  • The L86A2 LSW is a variant of the L85A2, the bullpup assault rifle used by British armed forces.
  • The icon looks very similar to the QBB-97.
  • It's the second 5.56mm DMR in the game, with the Mk 12 SPR being first.
  • The L86A2 was originally designed as an LSW (LMG). The weapon is designated as the L86A2 LSW. It was designed with a full-auto fire in mind and had the option to fire on full-auto in real life. The weapon shifted into a DMR role in the British Army due to its long barrel producing good range and due to the L110 light machine gun pushing it out of the squad support weapon role.
  • Red Faction Marksmen in 50v50 receive this weapon, along with 300 5.56mm rounds.
  • This is the game's sixth bullpup weapon, after the FAMAS, QBB-97, PKP Pecheneg, Groza and Groza-S. Bullpup means that the gun's magazine is behind the trigger of the rifle.
  • There's a grip behind the magazine and under the stock. It is designed to aid in accuracy firing from the prone position.
  • This is one of the first guns to have a visible bi-pod (along with the Mk 20 SSR, released in the same update).
  • The firing sound is somewhat similar to the BLR 81.
  • This is the highest capacity DMR in the game, with a magazine capacity of 30 rounds.
