The Glock 17 is an Austrian Pistol. It is unlocked by default.
The Glock pistol, sometimes referred to by the manufacturer as a Glock "Safe Action" Pistol or colloquially as a Glock, is a series of polymer-framed, short recoil-operated, locked breech semi-automatic pistols designed and produced by Glock Ges.m.b.H., located in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria. Despite early doubts about its reliability, due to its frame being mostly Polymer 2, a plastic, it entered Austrian military and police service by 1982 after it was the top performer on an exhaustive series of reliability and safety tests. Since then it has spread across the world, becoming the standard 9mm of countless law enforcement agencies.
The Glock 17 is a secondary semi-automatic pistol. It's effective at close to medium range. This pistol can be used for long range engagement, but this isn't practical due to the fact that it takes 5 hits to kill at long range, and it has a bad muzzle velocity. The G17 has the same accuracy and hip fire stability as the M9. However, the G17's aiming stability is about 2 times higher than the M9, which means that the G17 is easier to control and has less recoil per shot than the M9 making it better for sustained fire. The G17's magazine capacity is 17+1, it currently holds the position for the 3rd highest magazine capacity of the secondary class, behind the G18 and the TEC-9.
The G17 has a comparable damage to assault rifles and carbines in close quarters. However, it may frustrate the player if he/she attempts to use it as a primary weapon, because of its poor accuracy at range and a long time to kill compared to other primary weapons.
Usage & Tactics
Using the G17 as a quick backup weapon when your primary weapon is out of ammo is most ideal for this secondary weapon as it takes 3SK in CQC; ambushing is also a good idea. It's not recommended to use this pistol with a passive play style; due to the high TTK (Time To Kill), the G17 will be outgunned by many of the weapons in-game.
The Glock 17 overall is a reliable pistol much like the M9. It can be helpful in sticky situations due to its large magazine size and less camera recoil.
