Best Kar98k loadout and class setup in Call of Duty: Warzone

The best loadout for this classic bolt-action rifle

Looking for the best Kar98k loadout in Warzone? For aggressive sniping, there’s not much better than the Kar98k (even if it's technically a Marksman Rifle). This thing can 1-shot kill and handles ludicrously fast. You can fire, reposition, fire, switch guns, fire, and everything else in a matter of seconds. Ignore the class designation; the Kar98k is functionally among the best Sniper Rifles in Warzone.

Best Kar98k loadout in Warzone

Using the Kar98k, you’ll want to kit yourself out for speed and range. To this end, we’ve got a delicious loadout that absolutely destroys the competition when sniping aggressively. Don’t expect to get that near-hitscan bullet velocity at all ranges you’ll see with the ZRG or LW3 - Tundra, but the Kar98k more than makes up for this with its amazing handling.

Here's the best Kar98k loadout in Warzone:

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

The Monolithic Suppressor should always be on your weapon. It boosts your range and suppresses your gun’s noise, taking you off the enemy minimaps and keeping your damage high at range. An easy choice.

The Singuard Custom 27.6” is the longest barrel available for the Kar98k, and the boosts it gives you to bullet velocity and range help massively when using this gun. It’s a little harsh on your mobility, but we’ll deal with that later.

The Tac Laser boosts your aim-down-sights speed significantly. The drawback of having a visible laser isn’t even that bad, since you should be aiming, shooting, and moving on as quickly as possible. If your enemy can work out your position in the time it takes to do that, you need to start firing faster.

You can’t snipe with the Kar98k without a Sniper Scope. Pretty self-explanatory - without it you’ll be unable to aim at all. For those of you struggling to unlock it, grind a little in Multiplayer or Plunder, when kill-death ratios don’t matter as much.

Finally, we’re boosting that ADS speed once more with the FTAC Sport Comb stock. You’ll have to be careful as it reduces aiming stability, but if you’re able to snap onto your targets then the fastest possible build is perfect here.


Secondary weapon

You’ll want a solid weapon to support this at closer ranges. I enjoy a mid/close range Assault Rifle, and the Cold War AK-47 and XM4 are really strong. You can always bring along an SMG like the Bullfrog too.
