|— Weapon Description|
The L2A3 is a variant of the famous Sterling Submachine Gun used during and after World War II by many countries. It is a capsule shop weapon and a prize for getting 13-15 boxes in Prison Break Survival. Although this gun is considered sub-standard amongst other smgs in the pointman class, it has high knockback power and is extremely accurate when burst fired.
- To effectively use this weapon burst fire to keep a high accuracy and conserve ammo.
- This weapon has poor armor and body penetration, ALWAYS aim for opponents heads; the knockback power from a headshot will shift and unsteady opponents aim, making it hard for them to shoot back.
- Although the accuracy of this weapon is laser straight at close distances (when burst fired), at farther distances (30+ meters) the shots become erratic and non accurate. Like all smgs this gun is for close quarters battle strictly.
- The total starting ammunition for the L2A3 is small and because its rate of fire is so high, you will often find yourself out of ammunition in the middle of battle, its very important to always have a handgun as an emergency backup weapon.
The L2A2 is commonly used by the Royal Hong Kong Police (RHKP) in the 1960s and 1970s,during the peroid of British rule..
