The Heckler & Koch 417 is an assault rifle featured in Warzone: Iron Wolf.

Warzone: Iron Wolf

"Neutralize distant enemies with the HK 417's two round burst. Stay clear of rapid fire/heavy hitting weapons, picking them off before they can get into their effective range. Use the excellent accuracy to your advantage to put down snipers and foes holding down open areas."
―In-game description

Campaign

The HK 417 is only useable in the past missions. It is part of Charlie "Spike" Thompson's starting weapon in Sagitarrio. It was slated to appear as a starting weapon in Act of Valor, but eventually was replaced by an M4A1 SOPMOD.

Multiplayer

The HK 417 is unlockable at level 64. It is the final assault rifle unlocked. Damage wise, it is the second-highest on offer, on par with the Mk 14. While they both require two body shots to kill, the Mk 14 edges it out in damage output. However, the HK 417's firecap is better, allowing a steady aim for its follow up shots. Typically one burst is all that is needed to drop enemies.

It is the only assault rifle to have the Over-gassed Action and one of two with the Thermal Scope attachment. The rapid fire attachment will give its burst a much faster time to fire off, being able to strike out enemies at a long range very quickly, since it only requires two bullets to kill. Initially, the recoil will cause the weapon to reset before the next shot can be fired, but due to the increased firecap, the weapon will climb upwards the faster it is fired. This will also occur when the Select Fire attachment is on full-auto.

However, it isn't without its weaknesses. Being mindful of heavy hitting weapons like SMGs, Machine Pistols and Shotguns is key, as they will be far superior in close range engagements. It is advised to keep a handy second weapon quick on the draw in case you are forced into a fight out of the HK 417's comfort zone. Ideal choices are any of the Machine Pistols or Handguns such as the MP5K and Caracal.
