Trademarked weapons in games

Recommended Posts

I want to get into development back again, I don't want to get any of my games into the market. But I still have this question:

Do you really need to pay or at least, talk to the weapon manufacturer so they allow you to put their trademarked weapons into your commercial game?

For example, i've made an HK Usp 45. for a paid game, so the producer, or any developer of the team has to contact HK so they allow the team to share the game without any possible lawsuit?

I have this question because you have to do this for licensed cars(Toyota doesn't want to appear in games anymore, so no more Toyotas in games) and since cars are trademarked, weapons too.

If you want to call it "HK" then yes. Most games just use "USP 45" and don't have the HK appear anywhere in the game or on the weapon model itself.
