The G3 in real life (A3 variant).

The G3 (German: Gewehr 3; English: Rifle 3), is a battle rifle designed in 1959 and manufactured by German small arms producer Heckler & Koch. It is a selective-fire weapon chambered for the 7.62x51mm NATO cartridge, is typically fed from a 20-round detachable box magazine, and has a fire rate of 500 to 600 rounds per minute depending on the variant. A wide variety of non-military variants are also in production, typically sporting smaller magazines, semi-auto only, and other modifications to comply with various regulations.

"The G3 is the big brother to many modern weapons such as the MP5 and the G36C. It's heavy and somewhat clumsy but reliable, very accurate and extremely powerful."
— In game description.

The G3 is the Tier 1 unlock for the Assault Kit in Battlefield 2. The G3 has a higher than average damage for an assault rifle, coupled with average fire rate, spread, and recoil values. It requires at minimum two rounds to kill, but may take as many as four depending on round placement.

It also has one of the lowest magazine capacities out of the assault rifles. One feature of the G3 is that when it is in use, the player will be equipped with hand grenades instead of a grenade launcher.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 - G3

"Known as a "Battle Rifle" because of its 7.62mm round and heavy frame, this weapon is capable of fully automatic fire at a rate of 600 rpm. The 20 round magazine is offset by the incredible stopping power of the 7.62mm round."
— In-game description

Only available in multiplayer, the G3 is the last battle rifle issued to all kits requiring the achievement of Rank 22. The G3 uses a 20 round magazine, is fully automatic, and can be modified with a Red Dot Sight or a 4X Rifle Scope. It has a low fire rate combined with high power, and, as with the LMGs, each successive shot decreases overall spread.

The G3 is one of the weapons that has a 50% recoil decrease when crouching, making crouching a better option for long range targets. The G3 handles and performs roughly similar to the M14 in the Vietnam expansion pack for Bad Company 2.

"This German made battle rifle is the default weapon for the Assault class."
— In-game description

In Battlefield Play4Free, the G3A4 is the default assault rifle for the Assault Kit. Its reload time is on par with many other available assault rifles, but it has the lowest average damage output of all assault rifles, as well as fairly moderate recoil that pulls more right than left.

The weapon can be equipped with attachments to increase performance aspects: the Stand-off Barrel increases range; Soft Point Ammo increases damage at all ranges; a Tactical Stock reduces overall deviation. Casket Mags and High Capacity Mags raise its capacity to 36 rounds per magazine, or 28 rounds per magazine (respectively), and provide an extra magazine on spawn.

BF3 G3A3

"The G3 rifle is one of the most widely fielded Assault Rifles in the world. Multiple versions of the G3 exist, and it has been used in countries around the world, including Sweden where it was known as the AK4. This particular G3 is the A3 variant, with a fixed stock. The long barrel and firing heavy 7.62x51mm NATO round enable the G3A3 to reach out at longer ranges than most other Assault Rifles, but at the cost of heavy recoil."
— Battlelog description

The G3A3 is featured in Battlefield 3.

Singleplayer and Co-opEdit

In the singleplayer and co-op modes, the G3A3 is very common among the PLR and the Iranian Army, and can be found with or without optics.


The G3A3 is unlocked for multiplayer when an overall score of 160,000 points are reached in Co-op. Formerly (before the R3 patch), 441,000 points needed to be achieved in Co-Op to unlock it.

The G3A3's relatively low rate of fire, high recoil, high hipfire spread and low magazine capacity leaves it somewhat disadvantaged at close range; however, it makes up for this with its high damage output. Its high minimum damage and an almost unrivaled degree of accuracy make it excel at longer distances where most other assault rifles would prove too inaccurate or low-powered.

The G3A3 has been returned to its original state since the March 27 Patch. The current maximum damage for the G3A3 is 34 while all the other assault rifles' maximum damages are 25, and its minimum damage is 22 while the rest of the assault rifles' minimum damages are 18.4. This makes it a 3-shot kill at close range and a 5 shot kill at long range, both the lowest required on any assault rifle. The G3A3 also has the highest minimum damage range of any of the assault rifles, being 60 meters instead of the usual 50.

Adding a heavy barrel will extend the minimum damage range to a highly unusual 90 meters, and, more importantly, allow the G3A3 to kill an enemy in 4 hits at 60 meters, where other assault rifles need 6. Also worth noting, is that shots from the G3A3 will, like other 7.62mm weaponry, suppress enemies more than regular small arms.

As a disadvantage the G3A3 also has the lowest bullet velocity of the assault weapons at 500 m/s, and thus has the lowest maximum range as well of 750m. It also possesses a high hipfire spread, comparable to a semi-automatic sniper rifle.

The G3A3 supports the Underslung Rail attachment which can be used to attach the M26 MASS shotgun, but it cannot mount the M320 grenade launcher; the M320 must be used as a standalone weapon.

"The PTR-91 is one of a family of modern civilian semi-automatic rifles based on the design of the G3. A larger default magazine size than the Saiga can give you that extra edge you need."
— In-game description

The PTR-91 is a purchasable semi-automatic sniper rifle for the Professional kit, costing $3,300 to unlock. The PTR-91 is equipped with a JGM-4, Suppressor, and Extended Magazines by default. It handles similarly to the Saiga .308, but has more recoil. However, it has a larger standard magazine capacity and its default Suppressor can be useful to a stealth-minded Professional player.



Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

  • The G3 and the M14 Mod 0 Enhanced were originally intended to be able to be modified with attachable optics, however, DICE developers locked the ability to do so before the release of the game. Although players knew it was possible, through evidence from the first Squad Rush trailer and the VIP Map Pack 3 trailer, it was originally impossible to equip the Red Dot Sight or 4X Rifle Scope, except through the use of private PC servers which modified the game to unlock the ability. DICE had asked the community through a Battlefield Blog post if players wanted to have the optics for both the M14 and G3.[2] Though many comments opposed the idea, most community members were for it. Hence, the G3 and M14 Mod 0 Enhanced were able to equip optics with the release of the 1.05 patch.
  • Upon release of the game a glitch occurred, saying the Player had to be Rank 26 to unlock the G3. This problem also occurred for the Mk14.
  • If the player has G3 as primary weapon and M93R as a pistol, the swapping animation will be the same as swapping to XM8 Prototype's XM320. This also applies to the F2000.

Battlefield 3Edit

  • The right side of the weapon only has positions for safe and full-auto, while on the left side the selector has positions for safe, semi-auto and full-auto.
  • During the alpha, the G3A3 was simply known as the "G3."
  • The G3's usual green sections may sometimes appear black due to lighting errors.
  • G3A3 is the only assault rifle in the game that uses 34-22 (7.62x51mm NATO) damage model. SCAR-H also uses same ammunition as G3A3 but lower damage (30-20) due to SCAR-H being a carbine variant in the game. All other assault rifles use 25-18.4 damage model.
