The G3A3 is a selective fire 7.62x51mm NATO battle rifle originally developed in the 1950s by the German armament manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH in collaboration with the Spanish state-owned design and development agency CETME. It has since been licensed to various other manufacturers throughout the world, and is as ubiquitous as the AK-47 on the modern battlefield.


Its action is the basis of several weapons, including the HK21E, MP5, as well as the PSG1 sniper rifle. It is very accurate in semi-automatic fire, but this diminishes when fired fully automatic.

The G3A3 was utilized by South American rebel soldiers in 2014, during an armed struggle against their country's new regime. During this time, the gun launderer Drebin 893 also sold the weapon from his store.

Behind the scenes

The G3A3 can be acquired from fallen guerrilla soldiers in Act 2 of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. It can also be bought from Drebin's Shop for 4,000 DP. There are no modifications available for this weapon.
