The HK417 has the worst aimed accuracy of any battle rifle. It has the best hip fire accuracy of any battle rifle, along with the FAL. along with the G3 and the lowest recoil of any battle rifle along with the Mk 17 and M14.
The HK417 is best used for medium-ranged combat, and to some extent, long-ranged combat. The damage over time of the HK417 is enough for close quarters combat. Due to its worse ADS but great hip firing, use the HK417 like a weapon in Counter Strike.
It is a poor choice for killing zombies due to its low ammo capacity and ammo rarity.
- The HK417 shouldn't be able to accept G3 mags, but this was probably done to make it more easier to find the already rare ammo.
- However, the early prototypes were able to accept G3 mags.
