"Brand new Heckler&Koch HK243 rifle, redesigned by PMC to fire full auto. Tactical grip and 100-round extended magazine are also added."
- — Description.
The H&K 243 is a modification of the H&K G36C assault rifle.
The H&K 243 features very high accuracy, very low recoil, moderate damage, moderate penetration, a very fast fire-rate, moderate mobility, an extremely slow reload speed, moderate damage fall-off, a good effective distance, a huge magazine size of 100 rounds, and a huge amount of reserve ammunition.
The H&K 243 is one of the most powerful weapons in the game, since, at some point, the developers decided to update this weapon to feature 63 mobility points, making it as light as the AUG A3 assault rifle. On top of this, most of the H&K 243's other statistics are generally very good. The only statistic of the H&K 243 which leaves a little to be desired is its damage, though its damage is still good enough to make it an overpowered weapon.
Furthermore, being a premium LMG, the H&K 243 is endowed with 100 ammo per magazine and a huge reserve ammo supply, on par with the Colt IAR (and unlike the RPK-74 and RPKT). In fact, the H&K 243 essentially acts as a straight upgrade to the Colt IAR, with mostly similar statistics aside from the greatly increased mobility.
Overall, the H&K 243 is a potent weapon which performs well at all ranges and is excellent for attacking groups of opponents.

The HK 243's W-task is 100 Doublekills, and provides the weapon with a Zenit Klesch tactical device and an SDN-6. Though the W-task may seem overwhelming, it is easy to get and is more time-consuming than difficult. Completing the W-Task also unlocks Customization, although metalevels can be unlocked with GP before completing the W-Task. See H&K 243/Customization for more information.
