Another familiar entry from the Call of Duty franchise, this bolt-action sniper can be unforgiving in the right hands.
With significantly better handling than most sniper rifles, the Kar98k is a standout option for seasoned veterans to Warzone. Sniper rifles undoubtedly have an acquired taste and a serious skill gap between the good and the elite, but the quick ADS of the Kar98k can create a competitive edge.
- Muzzle – Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel – Singuard Custom 27.6″
- Laser – Tac Laser
- Scope – Sniper Scope
- Perk – Focus or Presence of Mind or Sleight of Hand
The Monolithic Suppressor increases effective damage range in addition to silencing rounds. The Singuard Custom 27.6″ attachment further aids damage range in addition to boosting bullet exit velocity. Recoil control is improved as well. The Tac Laser supports better ADS speed in addition to increasing aim stability. The usage of a Sniper Scope, although it slightly slows ADS, increases zoom significantly compared to iron sights. Perks are a matter of preference and can absolutely be changed out if they hinder the performance of the gun. Whereas Sleight of Hand boosts reload speed, Presence of Mind allows for infinite breath hold duration. Focus increases aim while being shot
ADS: The ability to focus in on a target is perhaps the most crucial criteria of a great marksman, and the Kar98k stands out in that respect
Mobility: Unlike heavier, more cumbersome sniper rifles, moving with the Kar98k is a strength
Damage Range: Bullet drop and bullet velocity can both be problematic when it comes to firing from too far out, so both are definitely factors to be mindful of.
