The SA80 / L85 Combat Rifle

The SA80 / L85 rifle is a popular weapon emulation in the SATR system, particularly for Battlefield Operators from England, Scotland, and Wales.

It is also a great choice for those battlefield operators who have included the new HB14 model in their arsenal.

The L85A1 combat rifle features a 30 shot magazine, and fires both automatic and semi-automatic. This weapon emulation has 6 spare magazines of 5.56mm NATO ammunition and takes 5 seconds to reload.

Its default emulation is long-range. Like any weapon emulation in the SATR laser tag system, you can override this default. For example, you can set its range to "indoor" for a shorter range.

The L85 rifle variant of the SA80 family has been the standard-issue service rifle of the British Armed Forces since 1987. The British army first adopted the L85A1 for the Falkland war in 1984.

Originally the real world L85A1s were quite unreliable and troublesome to handle and maintain. The long reload time reflects the high chance of stoppages.
