The L86A2 is known as the Light Support Weapon (LSW).

The LSW has a heavier and longer barrel than the L85A2, allowing greater muzzle velocity and affording greater accuracy. The LSW has an integrated bipod and utilises the same lightweight day sights as the L85A2.

For night operations it has an enhanced sight with increased magnification to maintain accuracy at range.
