- "Semi-automatic marksman rifle with limited magazine capacity. Favored by GIGN."
— In-game description
The HK417 is essentially a battle rifle variant of the HK416. The HK417 is a battle rifle manufactured by Heckler & Koch that chambers the 7.62x51mm NATO round.
In-game, the 417 combines power and speed with a 10-round magazine plus one in the chamber. It requires at least two to three shots to kill most Operators or a single headshot. The limited magazine capacity does, however, hold this rifle back.
