— In-game description
The G17 is commonly carried by enemies in most episodes. It can first be picked up in Back to School. Once it has been picked up, it can be selected for the player's loadout in any episode.
The G17 can give the player a large advantage in combat, as it has the lowest recoil and best accuracy in its class, medium power, and a high capacity. Its most unique trait it its incredibly high firecap, potentially firing as fast as 900 rpm, provided the player has a fast trigger finger, while other semi-automatic pistols can only reach 400 rpm.
The G17 Race Pistol is a weapon that was released in a patch alongside the Battlefield Hardline: Getaway expansion.
It is a Glock 17 outfitted as a racegun, permanently equipped with a Compensator and a Coyote sight attached to a pistol shroud and cannot equip any attachments, but can still use metallic paints. It is more stable than the normal G17, but has slightly more spread when continually firing due to the Compensator.

- During the Alpha, the G17C had no recoil animation.
