The HS 414 is the Tier 4 short-barrel rifle of the Sapper class. Statistically it is very similar to the Ticor but slightly superior; like other SBRs, it features a high rate of fire (rivaled only by the KR-15 and the Stacker) along with below average damage and range. Its most prominent feature is its high accuracy, which is the highest among SBRs (except for the auto-aiming AAW-1) and remains consistent even at longer ranges. It also features almost non-existent recoil, making it surprisingly easy to land headshots.
Like the Ticor, the HS 414 features low damage-per-bullet, but its high ROF combined with pinpoint accuracy help to mitigate this; and with damage-boosting attachments such as the Flash Hider, it can be a formidable weapon at close-to-mid range. At longer ranges, however, there is a noticeable damage drop-off, so users may want to try to limit their engagements to close-mid range.
The weapon's most prominent flaw is its long-reload speed, the second-lowest in its class, making it important for the player to have sufficient ammo in their clip prior to direct engagements.
