Recommended Builds Edit
For the HK417, players should use this weapon with the Magazine Replacement. With it's already quick 2-phase scope , it isn't worth equipping the quick scope as is actually slower than the default scope. The Magazine Replacement Trigger is recommended as it allows the player to stay in the fire fight for longer before having to reload, albeit it does worsen recoil and rate of fire slightly.
- This gun's unbelievable accuracy and stability when spraying allows it to lay down pin-point accurate firepower on fully-automatic.
- Always pick strategic points where multiple enemies are likely to rush. This sniper's high rate of fire and penetration can break any large attack as it begins to tear through multiple opponents.
- It's high stability and accurate moveshot can be used to "dodge" enemy sniper-fire while still laying down counter-fire.
- The range of this sniper is the highest of all the non-capsule semi-automatic sniper rifles.
Notable Comparisons Edit
