Best Warzone Kar98k loadout: Attachments & perks

The Kar98k is the fastest sniper in Warzone Season 1, so use these attachments and perks to maximize your sniping mobility.

The Kar98k is the most versatile Marksman Rifle in Warzone, capable of both long-range sniping and close-range quick-scoping.

Warzone has separated Sniper Rifles and Marksman Rifles into different categories. Sniper Rifles, such as the AX-50 and LW3 Tundra are heavier and designed for range in Warzone. The Marksman Rifles are lighter and more versatile but don’t pack as much punch.

However, the Kar98k is perhaps the best rifle out of either of these weapon classes. With high bullet velocity, one shot headshots, and excellent mobility, the Kar98k is favored by many Warzone pros and content creators for sniping.

Here are the best attachments and perks to maximize the Kar’s potential across Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone Kar98k loadout

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″ Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope (Crossthread Reticle)
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

This Kar98k build maximizes its range and bullet velocity potential while maintaining speed. This weapon will be capable of dropping targets in a single headshot from any range as well as being able to quick-scope reasonably well in a pinch.

As is the staple with all long-range builds, the Monolithic Suppressor and the Singuard Custom 27.6″, the longest barrel, are necessary. These attachments both increase its damage at range as well as vastly increase its bullet velocity. You’ll find yourself hardly having to compensate for lead or bullet drop, so simply aim for the head.

These attachments do slow the weapon down. In order to counter this, the TAC laser and FTAC Sport Comb stock speed up ADS time and mobility. Starting a firefight with a quick headshot with this weapon will put your team at a massive advantage. The speed of this weapon will also net you an advantage in sniper fights as you can stay mobile while quickly firing accurate shots.

The 7x magnification of the Sniper Scope is enough for almost any range in Verdansk. The Sniper Scope comes with an arrow-shaped reticle as default, but after getting 200 kills using the Sniper Scope on any weapon, you will unlock the Crossthread reticle. This reticle has a more classic cross shape that doesn’t obstruct your view of the target so it’s worth unlocking and using.

Best perks to use with Warzone Kar98k

Double time Warzone perk

Perk 1 – Double Time

Double Time will increase your Tactical Sprint duration as well as increasing your speed while sprinting. While sniping, repositioning between shots is vital. Sprint around and keep your enemy guessing where you’ll appear from and you’ll find sniper fights much easier.

E.O.D is one of Warzone’s most common perks, but when you’re picking off targets at long range, explosive damage isn’t something to worry about. You’ll get a much greater benefit from faster movement speed.

Perk 2 – Overkill then Ghost

The ground loot weapons in Warzone Season 1 aren’t great, so you’ll want to run your own Assault Rifle, such as the RAM-7, or SMG along with the Kar98k. Overkill will allow you to take two primary weapons from your first loadout, then you can hide yourself from the radar with Ghost from your next loadout.

Perk 3 – Amped

While sniping, you need the ability to quickly change weapons. Whether following up on a body shot with automatic fire, or needing to deal with a player in close range, you don’t want to have to wait while swapping weapons. Amped allows you to change to your secondary almost instantly, further increasing your speed on the map.

If you want to be the fastest sniper in Verdansk and Rebirth Island, you can’t go wrong with the classic Kar98k and these perks.

Warzone glitch results in easy wins for Rebirth Island

A glitch exists in the Warzone Rebirth Island map, which is awarding players with free wins by simply not playing.



Warzone's Rebirth Island

There is currently a glitch on the Rebirth Island Warzone map which awards players free wins.

Warzone’s Season 2 is off to an exciting start with brand new content such as the addition of the Outbreak mode, Fara 83 Assault Rifle, and LC10 Submachine Gun.

Of course, with any new update comes a fair share of unintended bugs, and Warzone Season 2 is off to an interesting start, specifically for the Rebirth Island map.

According to YouTuber Errl Shatter, there appears to be a game breaking bug going on where players can achieve an easy win in Rebirth Island… without even playing the game.

We’re not exactly sure on how this glitch works, but we’re presuming it has to do with the respawn system on the map. In the Rebirth Resurgance mode, players are given free respawns as long as their time continues to survive the duration of the game.

When a player respawns, there is a brief pause between the player spectating and dropping back into the fray. We suspect that somehow during this period of time if a squad is wiped out, players will be stuck on a permanent screen that says “waiting for redeployment.”

During this time, to the game, the player is still technically alive, so if the squad continues to spectate until every player in the game is killed by gas, their squad will be rewarded the win.

It seems that the execution of the glitch is also seemingly random, so there isn’t anything you can do to intentionally do this. We strongly urge that if you do come across this bug to leave the game in order to ensure a fair game for the rest of the players.

After you’ve been a good sport, be sure to tweet us @CharlieIntel with your clip so we can see for ourselves.

Best FFAR loadout for CoD: Warzone Season 2

BOCW’s FFAR is an Assault Rifle with an incredible fire rate, so here’s the best attachments to maximize its potential in Warzone Season 2.



The FFAR is a Black Ops Cold War Assault Rifle with an exceptional rate of fire, so here’s the best loadout to maximize its potential in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2.

Although being an Assault Rifle, the FFAR is one of the strongest ground-loot weapons in Warzone Season 1 and it has an excellent rate of fire with manageable recoil. It also acts similar to Modern Warfare’s RAM-7 which has been a popular choice in previous seasons. It can melt armor at close range while also being able to beam at longer ranges.

Thanks to the recent nerfs dished out to popular META weapons in Warzone such as the DMR and Mac-10, the FFAR has once again become a popular option for players to use. We believe we have the optimal loadout to make the best use of this blisteringly powerful gun.

Here are the best attachments to maximize the FFAR’s potential in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Best FFAR Warzone loadout

  • Barrel: 21.2″ Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag
  • Rear Grip: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Stock

We’ve built this FFAR to dominate at medium range. It can also be a surprisingly useful gun at close-range too. Nerfs have meant that the MAC-10 and akimbo Diamattis are still pretty good in close-quarters, but the FFAR can go toe-to-toe with them now.

Pair this Assault Rifle with a Sniper Rifle such as the LW3 – Tundra, or the Kar98k, and use it for medium-range engagements and you’ll have great success with the FFAR.

Note: As of 2/26/21, the Agency Suppressor is heavily nerfed for Cold War Assault Rifles. As a result, we do not recommend running this weapon with that attachment until a patch is released by Raven.

FFAR Stock

For attachments, we’re starting with Raider Stock. Slap this beast of an attachment on for increased strafe speed and aim-down-sight speed for medium and close-range engagements.

FFAR Barrel

Next, you should add the 21.2″ Ranger Barrel. This barrel has the best bullet velocity for the FFAR, making medium-range and even some longer-range engagements a breeze.

FFAR Underbarrel

The FFAR does bounce around while firing, so we’ve added the Field Agent Foregrip to help keep it under control. Pull down on your thumbstick or mouse and you won’t have too much trouble controlling the recoil.

FFAR Ammunition

For ammunition, we’ve gone with the Salvo 50 Rnd Fast Mag. This extended magazine will reduce your need to reload so you can take down multiple enemies in quick succession. With the prevalence of Self-Revive in Warzone too, finishing a knocked player could be the difference between a win and a loss.


The iron sight is unobtrusive, so an optic won’t be necessary. Instead, we’ve added the Airborne Elastic Wrap for increased aim down sight speed and overall weapon handling so you’ll be ready for any gunfight.

Pair this FFAR with a Sniper Rifle and you’ll find this loadout to be extremely strong in Verdansk and Rebirth Island.

Warzone Season 2 brings significant changes to some Cold War Weapons

It appears that Call of Duty: Warzone Season 2 has broken & fixed many of the Black Ops Cold War weapons in its arsenal, per YouTuber JGOD.



Warzone weapon changes Season 2

CoD: Warzone Season 2 is out now, and brings some heavy changes to Black Ops Cold War weapons, for the better and the worst.

Warzone Season 2 includes some much-needed tuning to weapon stats, which were previously unreliable, as weapon attachment pros and cons were inaccurate in the menus, as revealed by YouTuber JGOD.

As of the new update, it appears that Raven Software has taken the initiative to fix things, but yet also break a few things in the process. Per a Tweet from JGOD, it appears that the Agency Suppressor for Cold War weapons is currently broken, giving players reduced bullet velocities on select Assault Rifles.

This is troubling for players, as the Agency Suppressor has unique Warzone-only traits (separate from Cold War), which gives players extra range on their weapons.

Per JGOD’s Tweet, this basically “ruins” Cold War guns in Warzone for the time being, as Agency Suppressor is a pivotal attachment at ranges. Since this was revealed, Raven has publicly acknowledged this issue via a Tweet, and vows to fix it in a future update.

Fortunately, though, it does appear that Cold War barrel attachments are now accurate to the stat changes indicated in-game, a long-running issue that we’ve seen since the Black Ops Cold War X Warzone integration back in November.

As per bug fixes this update, it appears that the glint issue for Cold War snipers still exists within Warzone. When players use a 4x and 20x scope on these snipers, there is no distinguishable glint for other players to see at long range – an important sign that an enemy is targeting them.

For all of the new stat changes to weapons, we recommend watching JGOD’s video below to get into the loop.

As for bug fixes, you can keep an eye out on Treyarch’s and Raven’s public Trello board, or stay tuned @CharlieIntel for any updates.
