In ''[[Battlefield 3: Close Quarters]]'', the '''M417''' is issued to the [[Recon Kit]]. It was shown to the public in the "[[Battlefield 3: Close Quarters Donya Fortress Gameplay Trailer|Close Quarters Donya Fortress Gameplay Trailer]]" through the killfeed, as well as being seen in third person, fitted with a [[Holographic Sight]] and a [[Suppressor]]. Due to its background and magazine size, it can be considered an American-themed equivalent to the [[SKS]], but with more damage. The M417 is more suitable for medium to close range engagements than the traditional range of sniper rifles, killing in 3-2 shots at middle distance. At longer ranges the rifle can be used to some effect for supression or killing a wounded enemy, but the low power of the M417 rounds deters this kind of play style.

HK 417

HK417, 20" and 16" barrel versions, in real life

The HK417 is a German battle rifle manufactured by Heckler & Koch. It is a gas-operated, selective fire rifle with a rotating bolt and is essentially an enlarged M416. Chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO round, it is intended for use as a designated marksman rifle, and in other roles where the greater penetrative power and range of the 7.62mm round are required. It has been adopted for service by a number of armed forces, special forces, and police organizations.

In Battlefield 3: Close Quarters, the M417 is issued to the Recon Kit. It was shown to the public in the "Close Quarters Donya Fortress Gameplay Trailer" through the killfeed, as well as being seen in third person, fitted with a Holographic Sight and a Suppressor. Due to its background and magazine size, it can be considered an American-themed equivalent to the SKS, but with more damage. The M417 is more suitable for medium to close range engagements than the traditional range of sniper rifles, killing in 3-2 shots at middle distance. At longer ranges the rifle can be used to some effect for supression or killing a wounded enemy, but the low power of the M417 rounds deters this kind of play style.

To obtain the M417, players must complete the Team Player assignment. The requirements for this assignment are:

  • 10 T-UGS assists
