- "GSG 9 medium range 5.56x45mm caliber assault rifle, with high recoil and rate of fire."
— 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, this Defender's assault combines raw stopping power with a fairly decent rate of fire of 740. The weapon, while it does have a fairly predictable recoil, has poor hipfire accuracy.
- Poor hipfire accuracy.
