If you're coming out of the water with a M16 type rifle which you've opened the bolt, letting water get in the magazine, around the rounds, inside the bolt, etc, its your fault you didn't pull the charging handle to empty the bolt first before firing.
Protip: that video came from the H&K marketing department. ie, those people who are in the business of, shall we say, bending the truth.

That was an issue under sustained firing, but supposedly it was resolved prior to actual combat testing.

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.
