The strongest Call of Duty: Vanguard sniper is by far the Kar98k, which has a lot of stopping power and is able to dish out damage quickly and accurately. Whether you are frantically running around quickscoping or sitting back and hardscoping a lane, it’s the best sniper for the job.

But what attachments do you need for the best Kar98k loadout in Vanguard? With ten customisable attachment slots, ranging from optics, to barrels, to weapon perks, there are plenty of opportunities to take this classic sniper rifle and tune it to be even more powerful.

Some pretty strong Kar98k classes have already started to emerge and we have been looking for the best one you can put together. This set-up comes from ‘Zephy‘ on YouTube and allows you to remain quick on your feet, aim down sights in rapid time, and even stay off the radar when firing.

Here’s our pick for the best Kar98k Vanguard class.

Best Kar98k Vanguard Class

  • Muzzle: Scout Silencer
  • Barrel: Krausnick Scout
  • Optic: None
  • Stock: Short Stock
  • Underbarrel: None
  • Magazine: None
  • Ammo Type: Subsonic
  • Rear Grip: Leather Grip
  • Proficiency: Icy Veins
  • Kit: Deep Breath

Zephy’s set-up includes Subsonic ammo, which will help keep you off the radar, as well as the Krausnick Scout barrel, which removes enemy skulls when you kill people and reduces your firing visibility to enemies.

The Leather Grip is key to ensuring you can aim down sights faster, while the Short Stock will increase your movement, sprint to fire speed, and aim down sight speed.

While this build will decrease your effective damage range, the increased movement speed will allow you to stay on top of your enemies and keep up the pressure on them. It is built for close-range sniping anyway, rather than long-distance choke point hardscoping.

This definitely won’t be the best class for those looking to sit back and snipe, but right now in the beta, this is the best Kar98k loadout you can put together if you want to be mobile and rack up quick kills.
