The StA-14 Rifle has been used by Helghast Riflemen for over 50 years. Among the troops, it is considered an honor to carry this classic weapon into battle, and it is manufactured by Stahl Arms. It fires 7.62 x 51 mm high-speed, armor-piercing rounds and is very accurate, useful for picking off distant enemies (especially Helghast manning emplacements in the Campaign). Exceptions are the fact that there is no internal magazine and en bloc clip, it has a cylindrical magazine, just like virtually all Helghast weaponry.
As a note, sometimes ammunition for the StA14 can be quite rare, as it isn't the most common Helghan weapon.
In Killzone 3, the Stahl Corporation has modified all examples of the StA14 with a mid-range scope, making it more suitable for sniping and long-ranged shots. The weapon's stopping power also seems to have been increased, as in the single player campaign it now deals 4 times as much damage as an assault rifle, compared to only 2.5 times as much damage in Killzone 2.
