The IL 86 is an assault rifle that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

After the British army replaced this rifle with the German-made GP 37, it appeared in large quantities first on the black market and then in the Zone. The IL 86’s main advantages are a standard 4-x scope and the high accuracy of the first shot. In burst mode, its accuracy decreases greatly, and the main mechanisms of the rifle are not reliable enough.
