The Kar98k is increasingly popular among high-level Warzone players and it’s not hard to see why. Boasting the same terrifying shot killing potential for fully armored players as the HDR, AX-50, and Rytec AMR, but with much better handling stats than these Warzone sniper rifles.
Of course, that comes with a lot of caveats that ensure this sniper rifle isn’t downright overpowered. For starters, the Kar98k exhibits significant damage losses over long distances that make shots from the limbs and the lower and upper torso very weak. It also has a lot more bullet drop and travel time in its base form, so you’ll have a hard time landing with the Kar98k. Infuriatingly, there’s a reason pirates have made this their new favorite weapon, as it will force a player to drop instantly with a single headshot, no matter how many plates of armor you have. , and with very fast aiming speed I’m not very lucky.
Our construction maintains the base rifle’s quick aim speed, but extends range and improves bullet speed.
Best loading of Kar98k Warzone
The best loading of Kar98k Warzone is:
- Variable zoom range
- Monolithic suppressor
- Custom Singuard 27.6 inch
- Laser Tac
- FTAC Sport Comb
The Monolithic Suppressor increases the damage range of the Sniper Rifle, correcting one of this weapon’s rare weaknesses. This accessory also comes with sound cancellation which is vital in the later stages of the game to avoid being detected on the radar. Unfortunately, the monolithic suppressor has a negative impact on the pistol’s aiming speed, but the FTAC sport comb prevents this from having a drastic effect.
This isn’t the fastest aiming speed you can achieve with this rifle, so if you’re absolutely confident that you can perform your headshots at close range, you’ll want to bring a shorter barrel and maybe even a lighter suppressor – be aware this will severely limit your effective range.
Complete this build with a high damage SMG to retreat into very close quarters combat, like our best Warzone MP7 loadout. This means you’ll have to take Overkill as your second perk, Amped for your third so you can swap weapons faster, and EOD as the first, because we all hate dying to an RPG.

You can choose the gear you want, but the Kar98k must be played aggressively, so we suggest C4 and Stun Grenades.
