―In-game description

The SVD (short for Snayperskaya Vintovka Dragunova) is a semi-automatic sniper rifle that appears in Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2.


The sniper rifle's design comes from the Soviet/Russian Dragunov SVD. It comes complete with a large telescopic scope and a long, lightweight stock to ensure extreme precision over long ranges whilst maintaining high damage. The sniper rifle features a black plastic handguard, suggesting that the sniper rifle is a relatively recent model.


The magazines for this weapon hold ten 7.62×54mmR rounds each. The high-caliber rounds ensure one-hit kills and extreme accuracy, even over very long ranges. The rate of fire of the SVD is relatively medium.



Notable users

  • Jordi uses a suppressed version of the SVD during the Not the Pizza Guy mission. However, the player cannot take or use it.
  • Police snipers (from the Helicopter) use SVDs to try and kill the player. The hits are very accurate, and can kill the player in two or three hits unless they swerve, even on foot.
