Darkman's gun review - L22

    The L22 is the Carbine version of the L85A2 Assault Rifle!
    Unlocked at Rank 28!

    The L22 comes with increased damage up close (30 damage), slightly faster reload and a higher fire rate than the L85A2 (775 RPM), At a cost of long range damage, only dealing 21 damage at long distances, Muzzle velocity and penetration are also decreased.
    Pretty much, the L22 is a weakened L85A2, It does not have much to promise.

    However, an important thing to note: The L22 is actually pretty stable with recoil even without attachments, and it has actually good hipfire!
    Use the L22 as a longer ranged PDW is what I will say!

    Same iron sights as the L85A2, they work fine but aren't great either.


    The L85A2 lacks in unique attachments, the only one being the Long Barrel, It used to have a .22 LR conversion but Mar scrapped that.
    Since this gun fires 5.56x45mm NATO, this gun has access to the .223 Rem ammo type.
    Equipping optics will take off the SA80 Carrying Handle.
    Equipping the Long Barrel will give it a mini L85A2 handguard.

    If you want a loadout, I recommend you this:

    • DDHB Reflex
    • Muzzle Brake
    • Stubby Grip
    • Tri Laser
    • Default

    If you want lower recoil, use .223 Rem, but you will lose out on your long range 5-hit kill.


    • Before the New Steel update, this weapon couldn't equip any grips, the Laser was the only underbarrel option.

    My opinion on this gun

    This weapon does not really appeal to me.
    I do not really enjoy using it, I do get some kills with it but nothing impressive.
    It's just that this gun is nothing special, it's just there.

    I rate this gun 6/10
