If you get your kicks in FPS games from pinging heads with a well placed snipe, then you’re certainly not alone. Sniping, especially in a big, open battle royale like Call of Duty: Warzone, provides some of the most satisfying gameplay there is.

So, if you want to become a lethal sniper in Warzone, which gun should you be throwing into your loadout to make sure those crispy shots translate into kills on the scoreboard? Well, the general consensus is that you can’t go wrong running the Kar98k.

The Kar98k is widely dubbed the best sniper Warzone has to offer, as it has decent mobility, a relatively quick fire rate for a bolt-action rifle, and will comfortably one-tap enemies with a well-placed headshot. It’s the complete package, but how do you squeeze every last drop of goodness out of it through Warzone’s attachments system? And what should you run it with to create the best Kar98k Warzone loadout?

Well, we’ve got the answers for you right here.

The best attachments for a Kar98k Warzone loadout are:

  • Monolithic Suppressor
  • Singuard Custom 27.6”
  • Tac Laser
  • Sniper Scope
  • Stippled Grip Tape

This is the undisputed best build for a Kar98k in Warzone and has how the vast majority of players set it up for sniping in Verdansk.

Below you can see it in action as part of one of NICKMERCS’ Warzone loadouts, and you can expect to see this build in pretty much any other streamer or pro player’s class too.

But what do you run this Kar98k build with to make it the best loadout possible? Well, you’ll need one of the best Warzone guns for mid to close-range fights. We suggest something like a MAC-10 submachine gun, or a hard-hitting assault rifle like and FFAR. Take a look at our best MAC-10 Warzone loadout and our best FFAR Warzone loadout for some inspiration.

For perks, you’ll definitely need Overkill to run an SMG or AR alongside your Kar98k, and E.O.D. and Amped are probably your best bets in the other two slots.

For equipment, a Heartbeat Sensor is useful for checking buildings before you head on into one to set up, and C4 will always be the top pick for your lethal slot.
