- in-game description
The HK417 is an battle rifle featured in CrossFire.
The HK417 has a high damage rate and accuracy rating with below-average RoF. Due to this, its incredibly stable when fired in single shots or in short bursts, having a very tight shot grouping and experiencing very little recoil.
Due to the low RoF however, it's performance in close combat is lacking.
True to it's purpose and stats; the gun excels in mid and long-range combat, as the high stability, damage, and accuracy makes it a formidable marksman weapon. That said, it is advisable not to use this in close combat as the low RoF limits potential DPS, in comparison to better alternatives.

- Full auto is stable as well, but the low RoF makes it a bad choice if you have an aggressive play style.
