The HK417 is an assault rifle available in Critical Ops.


The HK417 is a moderate damage assault rifle. Depending on range, it can kill between two to four shots, retaining its two shot kill range out to quite some distance. With the great range, damage, and accuracy for the assault rifle class, the HK417 is an excellent assault rifle for use at mid-long distances. This weapon also boasts impressive penetration power, delivering fatal shots to the head, making Kevlar almost ineffective against the HK417.

However, like all weapons it has its share of downsides. The HK417 has the slowest rate of fire in its class, only firing a tap's worth of ammunition, which can be dangerous if attacking at close range. It is also the second most expensive assault rifle, coming in at $2900.

Overall, the HK417 is a moderate damage assault rifle, and is best employed at mid-long range. It also boasts excellent penetration makes its time to kill much more consistent. However, the rate of fire and small magazine size can be an occasional hindrance in gunfights.
