Kar98k’s secret aim assist advantage makes it Warzone’s best Sniper Rifle

Wyatt using Kar98k in CoD Warzone

Warzone players have long debated whether the Kar98k or Swiss K31 is better, but new aim assist findings prove that the Kar is the best Sniper Rifle choice for controller players.

Warzone’s Sniper Rifle meta is made up of fast and mobile Sniper Rifles that have no trouble one-shot headshotting players at long range. For the longest time, the Kar98k was the best option for this playstyle, but the Swiss K31 flew onto the scene in Season 3.

Boasting similar speed and bullet velocity, players have long been debating whether the Swiss K31 or Kar98k is the better option. Now, it appears that thanks to its much stronger aim assist, the Kar98k is Warzone’s best Sniper Rifle for controller players.

Aim assist has been a debate in Warzone since its launch, with high-profile players such as JackFrags and JGOD showing off how powerful it can be. Some believe that Modern Warfare weapons have more aim assist than Cold War’s, and new evidence from TrueGameData proves that this is true for the Kar98k and Swiss.

TrueGameData demonstrated how the Kar98k gets “rotational aim assist,” which is essentially when the crosshair stays trained to an enemy even while you’re hip-firing (up to 35m). While aiming down sight, this aim assist stays active until about 200m.

In comparison, the Swiss K31 doesn’t get any hip-fire aim assist and its ADS aim assist is “very very minimal compared to the Kar98.” While the Cold War Sniper’s aim does slow down around the target, it doesn’t have the “sticky” effect that the Kar98k does.

TrueGameData believes that the Kar’s stronger aim assist is because it’s technically a Marksman Rifle, not a Sniper Rifle. The Swiss, however, is a Sniper Rifle. It appears that Marksman Rifles get much more aim assist, so if you’re a controller player, the Kar98k is by far the best option.

However, TRG said that on a stats basis, the Swiss K31 outperforms the Kar98k because of its better damage profile and reload. So, for mouse and keyboard players, the Swiss K31 is likely the better option.

Warzone player wins match using a dance mat

Getting a victory in Warzone is difficult as it is, but one player decided to take on the challenge using a dance mat as their main input.

A Warzone player has shown exceptional skills in using a dance mat to play the battle royale and even get a victory.

Usually, Warzone players will choose between using a controller or mouse and keyboard when it comes to inputs. This is sometimes determined by the platform you are playing, whether it’s a console or PC.

However, some gamers like to defy the standards and use unique inputs to test their skills. One Warzone player has gone as far as using a dance mat, which has produced surprising results in Season 4.

Warzone player and Twitch streamer NianfoFR took on the challenge of using a dance mat to play the battle royale on stream, attempting to get a victory on Caldera.

The player used the dance mat for various inputs, including actions like crouching, jumping, reloading, and even putting armor on. The main use of the dance mat is the directional pads, which of course allow the player to move in the direction they wish.

Using this dance mat to move around must have taken some time to get used to, let alone also using it to perform other actions in-game.

To aim and shoot the player uses a mouse with his right arm, using his legs to do everything else. This must have taken a lot of dedication, skill, and effort, which isn’t going unnoticed, as the official Call of Duty account commented with mind-blown emojis under his post.

The player completes the challenge by getting a victory with the dance mat, which is probably the world’s first.

The STG44 is an extremely effective Assault Rifle, and here are the ideal attachments, Perks, and equipment to make the best STG44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

The Warzone Pacific meta underwent significant changes with the arrival of the Season 4 update which brought numerous weapon buffs and nerfs as well as new guns like the Marco 5 and UGM-8.

The STG44 Assault Rifle is a great choice in Season 4 because of its solid TTK and effective damage range. You can make this weapon even better with the right attachments, Perks, and equipment.

Here’s the best STG44 loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 4.

Best Warzone STG44 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: MX Silencer
  • Barrel: VDD 760mm 05B
  • Optic: G16 2.5x
  • Stock: VDD 34S Weighted
  • Underbarrel: M1941 Hand Stop 
  • Magazine: 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drums
  • Ammo Type: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Polymer Grip 
  • Proficiency: Vital
  • Kit: Fully Loaded

We’ll start off this Warzone Pacific STG44 loadout by boosting the weapon’s accuracy and effective damage range with the help of the MX Silencer muzzle and the VDD 760mm 05B barrel.

Next, we’ll focus on bringing the recoil under control, and this can be done by equipping the VDD 34S WeightedM1941 Hand Stop, and Polymer Grip. The G16 2.5x is a great optic that will help you eliminate targets from a distance.

The 8mm Kurz 60 Round Drums ensure that you have enough ammo to kill multiple foes, and the Lengthened ammo type buffs the weapon’s bullet velocity so that you can take out your opponents insanely fast.

The Vital proficiency ensures that you dish out the maximum amount of damage to your enemies, while Fully Loaded keeps you stocked up on ammo when continuously firing the STG44.

Best Warzone STG44 Perks and Equipment

  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Stim

For your first Perk, you should select E.O.D to help you tank damage from Grenades, Semtex, and other explosives. Overkill will allow you to pair the weapon with a close-range SMG like the Owen Gun.

Finally, Amped will let you swap between the two weapons instantly. The Semtex lethal will allow you to deal additional damage to multiple targets, and a Stim will give you a much-needed health boost.

How to unlock the STG44 in Warzone

The good news is that the STG44 is unlocked automatically in Warzone, and Vanguard players can access it early by reaching Rank 4 in the game’s create-a-class.

If you haven’t played Vanguard, earning the proper attachments may be a grind but at least the weapon is available from the start, so you don’t need to worry about completing a difficult unlock challenge.

Best alternatives to Warzone STG44

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the STG44 in Warzone, then the XM4 is a viable option. This weapon’s recoil is extremely easy to control so you can use it to pick off enemies with great precision.

The NZ-41 is another great choice as it overtook the STG-44 as Warzone’s most popular weapon. This Assault Rifle is so powerful that the developers are planning to nerf it.

Dr Disrespect has serious doubts over Warzone 2’s success

Top streamer Dr Disrespect voiced his concerns about Warzone 2 as the Call of Duty fan doubts the game’s long-term success.

Published

While streaming gameplay on Warzone Season 4’s new Fortune’s Keep map, Guy Beahm a.k.a. Dr Disrespect shared his doubts over the expected success of Warzone 2.

The Call of Duty franchise is set for a monumental end to 2022 with both Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 set to launch before the year comes to a close. Call of Duty fans already received glimpses of Modern Warfare 2, but for the most part, Warzone 2 remains a mystery.

There’s no denying that the battle royale’s secretive state is slowly building hype for the game, and players’ expectations are mounting. However, popular streamer Dr Disrespect believes it’s best to temper those expectations as he voices concerns over Warzone 2’s success.

The Doc has been critical of the Call of Duty franchise in the past when it comes to their incredibly popular battle royale. While streaming Fortune’s Keep gameplay, Dr Disrespect took a moment to discuss the upcoming Warzone 2 release.

The Doc foresees a positive initial reaction to Warzone 2, but he claims that the interest in the game will decline after a hot start, “I can see some initial hype but nothing like the original Warzone map and the original Verdansk. I just don’t see it. I think what we see is the slow decline.”

The Two-time doesn’t believe that the sequel will come anywhere close to the popularity of peak Warzone in Verdansk.

His concerns seem to stem from the belief that the engine used to create Warzone 2 is outdated, “Unless they come up with something crazy, I don’t know man. I just don’t think the engine can be pushed any further, it’s maxed out.”

It’s clear that the star streamer thinks the Call of Duty team is going to need a miracle to captivate players for as long as the original Warzone did.

It’s this lack of longevity that The Doc is worried about when it comes to Warzone 2, “In terms of its legs and how far it will run, I don’t think it’ll run as far as the Verdansk energy.”
