The Heckler & Koch G3 is an Assault Rifle introduced in the 05-26-10 patch.
The G3 is an assault rifle that combines accuracy and portability, making the G3 one of most potent mid-range guns in the game, although it also excels in CQC. In addition, this gun has low recoil, giving it even more potential. The G3's main strength is its power. It is a 4 shot kill to the chest of a medium vester. The G3 combines a high rate of fire with a small magazine making it undesirable.
Its damage will net many reliable 4 shot kills with very low damage dropoff. This makes the damage average among assault rifles,but the damage dropoff is one of the better out of most assault rifles,allowing the weapon to be consistent out to its maximum range,where its bullets will cease to hit their target at all.
The rate of fire is average,it is not a slow firing gun,but it is not an extremely fast firing one either. It can be used if surprised by an enemy at close range,but it is not the best option for sustained spraying. The maximum crosshair size is average amongst assault rifles,allowing it to compete at close range.
The reticule size is also middle of the road for most assault rifles. It is not the smallest,but it is not the largest either. It will increase in size at about the same rate as other assault rifles,but it will decrease faster then most. It is able to fire longer then other assault rifles before it becomes inaccurate.
The recoil pattern will cause the gun to kick upwards for the first 6 shots,then it will drift diagonally to the left or right,alternating between the two every 8 shots after the initial. This makes the gun very friendly for tap fire,and it makes the weapon quite predictable for recoil control,allowing it to accurately fire full auto at longer ranges.
The main problem with this weapon is its smaller then average magazine size. This will make it more difficult to effectively spray at close range,and it makes spraying less of a viable tactic,as there are not many bullets to send downrange before a reload is necessary. Many players will attach an Extended Magazine II to offset the low ammo count for the magazine, and reload speed is still pretty decent for an assault rifle. Attaching the long range Holosights can make this battle rifle a rifle capable of long range kills, or even an anti-sniper rifle. The G3 has a distinct firing sound, different from many other weapons in-game. The spread is extremely stable, tight and has a quick recovery rate after being sprayed continuously.The dull look, low ammo capacity and the need to constantly spend GP for the Extended Magazine attachment deter many players from purchasing this weapon, making it somewhat uncommon.

- The "G" stands for "Gewehr" (the German word for "rifle") like in the G36.
- This gun is very similar to the REC7 and the M416 CQB, statistically.
- The long length of this gun may give away your position, where it can stick out of hiding spots and walls.
