The L85A1, contrary to popular belief, is not the most accurate assault rifle. It has the least accurate rapid-fire/full auto assault performance, and the worst prone benefit. However, the scope allows players to place shots better at medium to long range when fired in semi-automatic mode, making it functionally more accurate for some.
It does a bit more damage than the M16A2 (but still requires 4 hits to kill a healthy target), and the scope is useful for spotting as well as good shot placement, making the L85 a very desirable unlock.
