Kar98 is a BEAST

Starting to really appreciate the Kar98, becoming my favorite bolt action in game

Yeah, it's ROF is the slowest of all, but I can't get over it's fantastic projectile physics. Crazy fast shot, needs minimal to no lead time.

Even in close quarters, the speed has been making landing hits pretty reliable. I've been keeping the x6 scope on it at all times, trying to use the spot scope as much as possible so I'm not broadcasting my position at all times.

Sure, it doesn't have the ROF of the Lee Enfield, or the pure damage of the G.95 but it's so consistent with its bullet speed and lack of drop

Had a round on Fjell playing super aggressively with it, x6 scope in CQB and walked away as #2 on the team, best scout score, 16 headshots, it was a blast

    I can't get enough of it. So satisfying to use.

    Its kinda like the Thompson. Super good but the lvl20 class unlock for a weaker class. Not many people have them so they don't think about it. It will most likely be needlessly nerfed just like the Thompson was once people start getting killed by it more, even though the class overall is weak comparatively.

    Yea it's a good rifle for sure. It's a close second to the Krag-Jorgensen for me

    Can confirm, I've been killed several times by this gun and thought "What just happened"!

    Right had upgrade tree, then iron sights only. With no scope glint, people think that they're safe to take a shot at you. With the bullet velocity and 'sniper bullets' upgrade, it's easy to stick with your sights zero'd at 60 metres and learn the bullet drop.

    It is a great rifle, but only on certain maps, mainly the large ones. I stick to the lee enfield on maps like Rotterdam and Arras. But with fantastic assault SLRs, why even play the recon class?

    I think I prefer the krag over kar98. But yes as the title says, k98 is a beast.
