"British made, high performance sniper rifle. Widely used across Europe."
— Battlelog description

The L96 is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion and is unlocked upon the completion of the Creeping Death assignment. It was first seen in the Strike at Karkand Gameplay Trailer.

Compared to the SV98 the L96's rounds have a higher velocity which causes bullets to drop less over longer ranges giving it a similar drop pattern to the JNG-90. The L96 also has the third fastest velocity out of all bolt action sniper rifles at 540 meters per second. Despite only minor differences, the JNG-90 is considered superior because it has a slightly higher velocity at 560 m/s, slightly slower reload at 2.5 seconds and a slightly higher rate of fire of 46.2 rounds per minute.

Patch historyEdit

The L96 was originally the only bolt-action sniper rifle that could mount a Flash Suppressor. When the Flash Suppressor was equipped onto the L96, the accuracy of the weapon, aimed or otherwise, was not affected at all whereas other weapons with a flash suppressor did suffer an accuracy loss. Following the 3/27/12 patch however, the flash suppressor no longer reduces aimed accuracy on any weapon.

An update changed the damage and chest multiplier to 1.25 for the L96. With 80 damage at close range it will kill in one shot to the chest or at any range in hardcore.

Before the June 4th 2012 patch, the point of aim on the L96 was vertically offset (with the possible exception of some rifle scopes) due to a bug. This caused shots to be fired from a point above the center of the sight the player was using, throwing off skewing aim. The iron sights are now aligned with the top of the post but not with the dot on the post.

The L96A1 is introduced in Battlefield 4: China Rising. It is unlocked by completing the Need Only One assignment.

Compared to other bolt-action sniper rifles, it has an average damage profile and rate of fire, but has slightly higher bullet velocity. While it is beaten out at close range by faster-firing sniper rifles such as the M40A5 and Scout Elite, and lacks the extreme range of the M98B and SRR-61, its stats are very well balanced for medium range, making it a good overall choice for most situations.

It comes with a Rifle scope (8×) equipped by default.

TriviaEdit

  • None of the DLC sniper rifles have attached scopes on their respective proficiency dog tag, including the L96A1.
  • In Battlefield 4, it and the expansion's other weapons were accidentally released early for PC players as part of the platform's first client patch.
