"417D is a battle rifle designed and manufactured in Germany by Heckler & Koch. It is a gas-operated, selective fire rifle with a rotating bolt and is essentially an enlarged HK416 assault rifle. Chambered for the full power 7.62x51mm NATO round, instead of a less powerfull intermeditate cartridge, the HK417 is intended for use as a designated marksman rifle."
- — Description.
The HK 417D is a battle rifle, having good accuracy and extremely good damage for an assault rifle. In compensation for high damage and accuracy, the 417D also has high recoil, low rate of fire, and low mobility.
The 417D is meant to be used for medium to high range due to its effective and maximum range, which can even be comparable to some sniper rifles. As such, firing this gun in semi-auto mode with a scope can indeed be used as a DMR.
The low rate of fire forces you to fight only from a distance. Your sidearm will be more suited against enemies encountered at close ranges.
- — Description.
The W-Task of the H&K 417D is 250 longshots. Finishing it will give 417D an ACOG optic and is renamed into 417 D ACOG, which provides better accuracy and reduced recoil as a trade for lower mobility. Completing the W-Task also unlocks customization for the H&K 417D. See H&K 417D/Customization for more information.
- This is a good weapon for its tier, it can also compete against higher tier weapons like KelTec RFB and SCAR-H.
- Avoid close range encounters, 417D is not good as SMGs and shotguns in such situations.
- Its range is higher than most of assault rifles and battle rifles, allowing players to easily shoot and kill without getting too close.
- Its sound is quite loud so you might want to switch to any silenced pistol if an enemy is close to you.
