Stadium – Donbass Arena

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 devs respond to incorrect Cold War weapon attachment descriptions

Developers have confirmed a fix for Black Ops Cold War weapon attachment descriptions being incorrect in Warzone.

Published

Confused Warzone player using XM4

Several attachments for Black Ops Cold War weapons ported to Warzone don’t match their in-game descriptions. Warzone devs have confirmed that a fix is in the works.

Call of Duty content creators such as JGOD have done extensive testing on all of Warzone’s weapons. They discovered that the MAC-10’s Gallantry blueprint performed vastly better than its regular counterpart and that Black Ops Cold War sniper scopes have no glint.

The broken MAC-10 has now been patched, but there have been serious inconsistencies with the BOCW attachment descriptions. Some have no effect on the weapon, and others do the opposite of what they’re supposed to.

Raven Software has confirmed that they are working on a fix for incorrect attachment descriptions, as well as certain attachments not unlocking.

Warzone devs to fix incorrect attachment descriptions

On Activision’s official Trello Board, a card reading CW weapon attachments: Certain attachments are not unlocking or working as intended’ was added with the tag ‘under investigation’ on January 21.

The card was added by Alexis Barth, the Communications and Community Manager at Raven Software, confirming they will be handling the patch.

With Warzone featuring a detailed Gunsmith system, you can choose up to five unique attachments that vastly change your weapon’s performance. Each attachment has a different description and stats to match. Meaning you can build your weapon any way you want.

However, many of the attachments for the Black Ops Cold War weapons in Warzone do the opposite of what they’re meant to, with some even having no effect.

For example, the Stoner 63 can be vastly improved by a barrel that supposedly gives extra ‘vehicle damage’ but actually increases bullet velocity. The Striker Grip for the SMGs also grants recoil control when it’s meant to increase melee damage speed.

Most players wouldn’t even think about attachments not performing as they’re meant to, so they could be wasting their valuable slots.

Raven also addressed they are working for a fix on weapon attachments not unlocking.

It may take Warzone devs a while to fix this issue as they have to test every Cold War weapon, so keep an eye on Charlie Intel for the best weapon loadouts, such as our guide for the best AK-74u.
