The SCAR-H CQC is categorized as an assault rifle in the Rainbow Six universe. The SCAR-H CQC appears in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 and Operation Dust Line expansion of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The weapon was also set to appear in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Patriots, up until its cancellation.

Story and Terrorist Hunt
The weapon is a high damaging weapon that takes out terrorists with only a few rounds. Ammunition is not that prevalent for the weapon in story mode due to terrorists only using it in select areas of the story. Terrorists never actually use the weapon in Terrorist Hunt. The sights are good, but a player might suffer at range, since the target could get lost in the small iron sight of the weapon. The weapon is Gabriel Nowak's preferred rifle in the Mexico mission.
The weapon is above average in multiplayer because it is a high damaging, slow firing weapon. The rate of fire is rather forgettable but the accuracy and range easily make up for this. The weapon is Gabriel Nowak's preferred rifle in the Mexico mission.

- "7.62x51mm caliber assault rifle, adapted for close quarter operations, high damage and severe recoil."
— In-game description
The Mk17 CQB is an assault rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. It was introduced in the Operation Dust Line expansion pack and is available for use by the Operator Blackbeard. As a weapon exclusive to its Operator, the weapon comes with two irremovable locks that hold the Rifle-Shield in place.
The Mk17 CQB, as the designation implies, is suited for close-quarters engagements, despite the rate of fire leaving something to be desired. The recoil of the rifle is rather high, especially with a Rifle-Shield deployed, so small bursts are advised. The transition from hipfire to ADS are also detrimental but can be somewhat managed with the Angled Grip. Overall, the Mk17 CQB is a decent weapon on its own, but is also one that is highly versatile with its possible attachments.

- The SCAR-H CQC is always modeled with a foregrip, and the grip does not take up an attachment slot since underbarrel attachments are not a customization option in the game.
- The weapon incorrectly feeds 30 rounds out of a modeled 20 round magazine.
- The stock, pistol grip, and gas block of the weapon give it away as a first-generation SCAR-H model.
