— In-game description
The HK416C is a compact carbine variant of the HK416 assault rifle. The HK416C is manufactured by Heckler and Koch that chambers the 5.56x45mm NATO round. It can be compared to the CQB-R/MARK 18 MOD 0 (An extremely short carbine variant of the M4A1 carbine) due to them both fitting the same ultra short carbine role.
In-game, and designated as the 416-C Carbine, the rifle combines high single-shot damage capable of taking out 1 and 2 armor operators in three shots at optimal range with a moderate fire rate of 740 RPM, comparable to the AUG A2 and the K1A. However, notable downsides include a much higher vertical recoil and a low magazine capacity of 25+1.
- Good damage per shot
- Low magazine capacity
- High vertical recoil
- Poor damage dropoff
- Subpar rate of fire
- Lacks Angled Grip
