The Lee Enfield is a commonly found rifle, available from residential and farm loot spawns. In addition to being one of the loudest guns, it is also one of the most damaging, able to kill a player with just two shots. However, it suffers from a slow fire rate. Lee Enfield magazines are fairly common to find as loot as well.
Following the release of the ArmA II 1.62 patch, the audible range and damage for the Lee Enfield were significantly reduced, making it safer to use, but less powerful against players.
- The Lee Enfield is often referred to as "The Dinner Bell" due to the high audible range. When choosing between guns early in the game it is preferable to have the Winchester 1866 rather than the Lee Enfield.
- On most occasions, the Lee Enfield will knock out players in 1 shot, as long as they are within a reasonable range. This makes it very effective for PvP, as long as you hit on the first shot, or before they see you.
