|Heckler & Koch G11|
300 (50 / 250) - H11
4.73x33mm Caseless Ammunition
The Heckler & Koch G11 is an advanced assault rifle prominently featured in Syphon Filter series ever since it's first inception in Syphon Filter 2 as the H11.
From Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain onwards, it's name was changed from 'H11' to 'C11' (the designation which is still used in the latest titles).
Syphon Filter 2 / Syphon Filter 3
The G11 is presented in the PlayStation 1 titles as the H11, a special assault rifle with a large 50-round magazine and a 1x telescopic sight for accurate shooting at longer ranges (in the instruction booklet the weapon is even called a "sniper rifle"). Though it's damage rating is classified as I (one) in the one to five damage scale (one being the lowest and five being the highest), it's extremely rapid fire rate (rated 5) will allow for enemies to be taken out quite rapidly (at the expense of a fast ammo consumption if the player does not fire in controlled bursts).
The weapon is typically hidden (some of these weapons will unlock extra Multiplayer content after being picked up). The H11 is also used by certain enemies in the later missions of both Syphon Filter titles (most notably by Agency Operatives in Syphon Filter 2 and by Mara Aramov associates in Syphon Filter 3).
Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain
Included in Omega Strain as the C11, the weapon has an increased power rating (IV) and due to it's specific characteristics (extremely fast fire rate, great stopping power and fast automatic target acquisition) alongside it's unique look has made the C11 one of the most favored assault rifles in Omega Strain.
Similar to the H11 in the previous titles, the C11 is also used by certain elite enemies in some circumstances (enemies equipped with these weapons are some of the deadliest). It's scope haves three zoom levels and can be used for quick and easy head shots.
It's unique, caseless ammo, is exclusive and cannot be transferred from any other weapon in game, making it's ammo supply rather limited, in addition, unlike the weapon description, the burst mode won't unfortunately allow for the projectiles to hit the same mark (because the weapon recoils after the very first shot is fired, making the other two projectiles hit different locations).
The weapon is an unlockable and can be equipped in the mission Equipment Selection menu after the United Nations Peace Award medal is received (by obtaining all the components which are necessary to cure the Omega Strain). The amount of carried ammo can be increased from the standard 150 rounds (50 / 100) to 200 rounds (50 / 150), after the Field Efficiency Expert special rating is earned (increasing the amount of carried ammo by the player for all weapons).
Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror
In Dark Mirror, the C11 is a usable weapon, being mistaken as C11 as was the case in Omega Strain. It fires in 3-round bursts, but can also be configured to fire full auto or single-shot. It is unlocked by gaining the second Combat Knife Specialist award. It uses the same scope as Omega Strain. Because it can now fire fully auto, and has 50 rounds, it is much more popular than its OS counterpart.
Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow
In Logan's Shadow, the C11 is also usable. Enemies may use it in the missions 'Powerless', 'Disintegration' and 'Leading the Blind'. Just as in Dark Mirror, the combination of having 50 rounds and being full auto makes it a lethal weapon for combat engagements at any range. It is unlocked by gaining the third Combat Sharpshooter award.
- During the Syphon Filter Omega Strain Beta Version , the G11 was using it's real life designation which was later changed to C11 in the definitive release version. (See: Beta Weapons (Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain) for extra information).
