Since Call of Duty: Warzone was released, there’s been one sniper rifle that players have used without question: the Kar98k. Though it’s not technically classified as a sniper rifle, the Kar98k is as much of a sniper as any other weapon in the class. The Kar98k backs this claim up with one of the best loadouts in all of Warzone, and it’s been that way for over a year.
Without a doubt, the biggest benefit to running the Kar98k in Warzone is being able to utilize its mobility. While its damage range and bullet velocity are impressive on their own, no other sniper, including the Swiss K31, can touch the Kar98k’s mobility on the streets of Verdansk. To make matters worse for enemies, players can increase this mobility with the Kar98k’s recommended loadout.
Best Kar98k loadout in Warzone
For all intents and purposes, the Kar98k can be defined as the best sniper in Warzone. While some will argue the Swiss K31 takes that spot, it really comes down to some personal preferences. Players can’t go wrong with either weapon but, for fans of the Kar98, the top loadout for it is viewable below.
- Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
- Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
- Optic: Sniper Scope
- Laser: Tac Laser
- Stock: FTAC Sport Comb
This has been the Kar98k’s loadout in Warzone for several seasons. Veteran players will know exactly what stats it boosts. However, for newcomers, damage range and mobility are the keys to this loadout. The Monolithic Suppressor and Singuard Custom 27.6″ barrel take care of the damage range, along with recoil control and bullet velocity.
For mobility purposes, the Tac Laser and FTAC Sport Comb help to increase aim down sights time. This makes quickscoping in Warzone much easier with the Kar98k. The final attachment is the Sniper Scope, which is a solid option for any range that players find an enemy at in Verdansk or Rebirth Island.
