The best Kar98k weapon loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1 helps the bolt action sniper rifle compete with the more modern sniper rifles already in Warzone. Not that it needs too much help — its per-bullet damage makes it absolutely deadly in the hands of an accurate marksman. It's also highly mobile, making it a great choice for Warzone, where movement and positioning and essential elements on the game.

Here's how to kit out your Kar98k for maximum efficacy.

Best Kar98k Weapon Loadout in Warzone Pacific Season 1

This build for the Kar98k will bolster its damage range and mobility, leaning into two of the weapon's strengths.

  • Muzzle: G28 Compensator
  • Barrel: VDD RED2K
  • Stock: Short Stock
  • Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
  • Magazine: 8mm Klauser 3 Round Mag
  • Ammunition: Lengthened
  • Rear Grip: Fabric Rear Grip
  • Perk: Shrouded
  • Perk 2: Deep Breath

The VDD Red2K barrel and the Lengthened ammunition both buff the Kar98k's bullet velocity, making it even easier to land those one-shot-kill headshots. The barrel also increases that one-shot kill area.

The Short Stock, 8mm Klauser 3 Round Mag and Fabric Rear Grip increase the Kar98k's ADS and sprint-to-fire speed, making its high mobility even more useful. The G28 Compensator and Heavy Foregrip cut down on recoil, allowing for easier follow-up shots to clean up body shots.
