In this guide to Escape From Tarkov we present you the best HK416 builds in terms of recoil and ergo! There is a cheap & expensive variant.

That’s why you should start modding: In Escape From Tarkov you can, as you probably know, buy weapons, loot them or receive them as a mission reward.
These are mostly still in their standard version.

Modding can make your guns better than their stock versions. With new parts you can achieve less recoil and better ergonomics. This gives you a small advantage over all those who ignore modding their weapons.


The best HK416 builds – little recoil for little money

I’ll start with the HK416 for the small wallet. First of all, I should mention that you should have reached level 3 of Peacekeeper as well as Mechanic and Skier on level 2.

Not only do you need this for the build described above, but also to get good ammunition for the weapon. Before we can start, of course, you will need the weapon itself. This costs around 60,000 rubles on the Flea Market.
