Glock 17 is a Secondary Pistol weapon that can be purchased from and sold to Big Al's Gun Shop, where it is the cheapest Pistol and Secondary weapon available.

The Glock 17 was one of the items available at the launch of Torn in 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.

The Glock 17 has a base fire rate between three to six rounds per turn and can fire 20 rounds (over four to seven turns) without reloading. It has a stealth rating of 4.5.

Obtaining

The Glock 17 is most commonly obtained as a purchase from Big Al's. It can also be found through city finds and is a possible result from paying 75 job points to use the Private Security Firm 5* special, "Open Arsenal." [1]

1,000 Glock 17s will be restocked at Big Al's after being sold out. The amount of time before a restock occurs is half the time it took the item to sell out, rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.

Glock 17s can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Secondary weapons do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

A high quality Glock 17 with a Weapon Effect can be obtained by opening a Small Arms Cache.

Buffs

Players can gain weapon experience on Glock 17s once the "CBT3870 Bachelor of Military Arts and Science" Education course has been completed. Glock 17s and all primary and secondary weapons gain a 20% damage boost from the "Firearms Expert" 10* special and an extra clip from the "Bandolier" 7* special at Gun Shops.

Glock 17s, along with all primary and secondary weapons, receive a 20% and 5% bonus to Ammo conservation from the "MTH3330 Bachelor of Mathematics" and "MTH2310 Discrete Mathematics" courses respectively.

The Glock 17 is affected by all universal buffs such as the 1% damage boost from completion of the "BIO2350 Evolution" course or the +3 accuracy from the "Seasoned Poacher" 10* Zoo special.

Historical Notes

The Glock 17 was originally known as the "Glock 18" but the name was changed on 27 June 2017 because the Glock in Torn is the semi automatic version, while the Glock 18 is the select fire version. [2]

In the old Ammo system prior to the Attacking 2.0 update, ammo for the Glock 17 costed $20 per clip. The icon for the ammo ( jL8iKxj.png )was a small pistol cartridge. [3]
