The G36K ("Kurz", German for "Short") is an Assault Rifle manufactured by Heckler and Koch from Germany.
The G36K is the only weapon that features its own specialty, a ZF 3x4° dual optical sight that combines a 3x magnified telescopic sight and a Red dot sight (the model in the game is only a 3x telescopic sight). However, when zoomed in, it lowers the weapon's cycle rate and clutters your sight picture, so players rarely use the function.
This is a gun which is rarely seen used by players due to its expensive price, making it not as famous as other guns. In CF Indonesia, this gun is rarely used not because of the unfriendly price, but because most Indonesian players can't master the gun's characteristics (notably the gun's recoil and its very fast firing rate, makes G36K hard to handle).
G36K can 1-hit headshot at all ranges due to its high damage, but the recoil is also high and tends to be unstable while strafing. However, it has the fastest rate of fire in the assault rifle category, making G36K very deadly against close range targets. It is also compensated with full wallbang which makes G36K special.

- G36K made its first movie-media appearance in a James Bond movie. 007: The World is Not Enough was the first movie in the world to feature G36K into its storyline. In the movie, the G36K was equipped with a laser sight and used by the female assassin wearing a red suit, tried to shoot Bond from her boat right after the explosion occured at MI6 headquarter just before the boat chase started.
- Then, G36K made another movie-media appearance. In Mission Impossible III, during the bridge ambush scene, Agent Ethan Hunt (portrayed by Tom Cruise) assembled a G36K and used it to take out the enemy's drone.
- Same as Desert Eagle and XM8, this gun also have an old model during Crossfire Beta Version. Now we can still see some clients have the old one in item icon and bag icon, but in-game version is the new one.
