"The 417 is a German-made semi-automatic assault rifle. Its impressive accuracy and penetration make it well suited for ranged combat."

The 417 is a weapon that appears in Watch Dogs.


The battle rifle has its design based on that of the Heckler & Koch HK417. It is in the same family as the 416, also in-game. However, the 417 fires a bigger caliber than the 416 that deals more damage, in exchange for a burst-fire mode and a smaller 20-round magazine.


The gun employs 7.62×51mm NATO cartridges, offering only average damage. The cartridges are fed from 20-round box magazines, which offer relatively low sustained fire duration before having to reload. The in-game model fires in burst-mode. However, this makes up for accurate shots, as the burst-fire mode avoids a high recoil, unless if the player starts to fire continuously.



  • In reality, the HK417 is not an assault rifle, but technically a battle rifle, and is commonly used with a scope as a Designated Marksman's Rifle. It also does not have a burst-fire mode, unlike in-game. The real life version only has safe, semi-auto and full-auto fire modes.
  • The in-game description incorrectly refers to the 417 as semi-automatic.
