The '''HK417''' is a battle rifle designed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch in Germany. It is a gas-operated, selective fire rifle with a rotating bolt. It's chambered for the full-power 7.62×51mm NATO round, instead of the less powerful 5.56×45mm NATO intermediate cartridge. The HK417 is intended for use in roles where the greater penetrative power and range of the 7.62×51mm NATO round are required. It has been adopted for service by a number of armed forces, special forces, and police organizations.

Overview

The HK417 is a battle rifle designed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch in Germany. It is a gas-operated, selective fire rifle with a rotating bolt. It's chambered for the full-power 7.62×51mm NATO round, instead of the less powerful 5.56×45mm NATO intermediate cartridge. The HK417 is intended for use in roles where the greater penetrative power and range of the 7.62×51mm NATO round are required. It has been adopted for service by a number of armed forces, special forces, and police organizations.

In-game, the 417 combines power and speed with a 20-round magazine plus one in the chamber. It requires at least two to three shots to kill most Operators or a single headshot. Curiously, the 417 and the CSRX 300 are the only weapons in the game that don't have access to a Reflex Sight (despite the 417 being able to equip the other three Sights).

Trivia

  • Originally, the rifle was modeled with a 20 round magazine and incorrectly fed 10 rounds out of the said magazine. Since Operation Ember Rise, it now feeds the correct 20 rounds.
