The HK-417 is a selective-fire, military-grade marksmen rifle in Apocalypse Rising. It excels in all ranges of combat, is very rare, and is arguably one of the best guns in the game. Its small magazine size and high recoil is compensated by high damage and long range. Those two attributes make for a very deadly marksman rifle. The HK417 is able to utilize sights, suppressors, and underbarrel attachments. It has a decent fire rate of 600 RPM.
The HK417 Battle Rifle is useful for all types of combat, but it is suited for ADS (Aim Down Sights) and fighting from a distance, and should be used carefully when hip firing due to its low ammo capacity and ammo rarity. However, it makes up the low ammo capacity by its high damage inflicted on players, as this gun uses the 7.62 x 51mm NATO bullet, which is a powerful cartridge.
It can be fitted with a 7.62mm suppressor, any kind of sight, and an underbarrel attachment. The ammunition for this gun also comes in 20-round box magazines, 30-round box magazines, and 50-round drum magazines.
- The prototype of this gun was based off of the HK416, which was based off of the model of the M4, and used a .223 or 5.56x45mm bullet.
