|«|| Long Range Rifle (LRR) is a British designation for a AWSM (Arctic Warfare Super Magnum) sniper rifle. It is highly prized as a dedicated long range sniper rifle that combines the easy handling with the great power and range.|
|Type||Sniper Rifle / DMR|
|Caliber||.338 Lapua Magnum|
The LRR is a bolt-action sniper rifle that is chambered to fire the .338 Lapua Magnum round.
It loads from 5 round box magazines and is limited to a maximum fire rate of up to 30 rounds per minute only, with a muzzle velocity of 936 m/s. The LRR has an integrated (non-functional) bipod, and is fitted with a magnified riflescope that has a magnification strength range of 3x-12x. It can be zeroed up to a distance of 1,400 metres.
As one of the only two marksman rifles as well as being a general-purpose sniper weapon available with the release of the British Armed Forces DLC, the LRR is basically the British counterpart to the American M24. Both have the same magazine capacity, a similar role, and stopping power (though the .338 round is slightly better at longer ranges).
It's a highly accurate and powerful sniper rifle due to being chambered for the .338 round, which makes it one of the most powerful infantry weapons in the game after heavier 12.7 mm sniper rifles like the AS50. Its scope has two zoom settings, making the weapon ideal for marksmen and sniper roles alike.
The main drawbacks of the weapon are its 5-round magazine capacity, which is quite small compared to the 20-round 7.62 mm magazines of the (albeit less powerful) DMR or M110 rifles, making it somewhat inferior as designated marksman weapon. Unlike the M110, it also lacks any sub-variants fitted with night-fighting optics. Being a bolt-action rifle also means that it has a mandatory two second delay between shots.
Combined with its already tiny ammunition capacity, every shot fired needs to hit its target. Because the LRR has such high stopping power however, every round is almost always guaranteed to kill its target on the first hit, which means that follow-up shots are usually unnecessary (except in very specific cases).
- Tan: Standard flat desert tan paint finish. Used by the British contingent operating in Takistan.
- Green: Woodland green painted furniture with a matte black barrel and scope.
- Although designated as the L115A3, there are no functional or performance differences between the regular in-game L115A2 (that uses a tan paint finish) and the woodland-painted L115A3.
