L86 LSW has a longer barrel than the L85A1 rifle and a bipod, shoulder strap and rear pistol grip, together with a shorter hand guard. The extended barrel provides an increased muzzle velocity and further stabilizes the bullet, giving a greater effective range.
- Weapon description


L86 LSW (Light Support Weapon) is a machine gun in CrossFire.

Overview

L86 LSW is patterned after L85A1, this gun behaves more like an assault rifle rather than a machine gun as it combines good firepower and accuracy with medium-high recoil, light-weight and medium draw and reload time.

It has a small magazine capacity of 30 rounds, bigger than the MG13 and CSRG M1915, but smaller than any other machine guns. It comes with 180 spare rounds though, allowing soldiers to last fairly long.

  • Moderate-high damage dealing.
  • High accuracy.
  • Fast rate of fire.

Trivia

  • Due to the large amount of reserve ammo, L86 LSW is very dangerous when buffed up with RPK-Infernal Dragon. It can carry up to 150/2700 rounds (6 RPK-ID + adittional ammo + 50% ammo boost for MM) in MMM/HM/HMX, far surpassing the M249 Minimi-Gold.
