Kar98k Best Class Setups & Attachments Modern Warfare

Wondering what the best class setups and attachments are for the Kar98k in COD MW? Great! Because we’ve got the exact guide you’re looking for.

In the Kar98k guide below, we take a look at the weapons statistics such as damage range, recoil, and rate of fire. We then discuss how viable the weapon is based on these stats including an overview of the best attachments.

Finally, we have created 3 classes that are best to run when using the Kar98k.

Weapon background

The Kar98k is a Call of Duty classic and can be traced all the way back to the first Call of Duty released in 2003. It has made reappearances in many COD titles including Black Ops and WWII. 


  • Damage: 86 ( with upper body multipliers)
  • Rate of Fire: 39RPM(Bolt Action)
  • Recoil: Low

From the statistics above, we can see that the Kar98k can kill in 2 shots. However, if you shoot a player from up close(47 meters) and land a shot at their chest. The weapon will down a player in one shot. The rate of fire is slow because of the bolt action mechanism used to rechamber the rounds.

Best Attachments

The best attachments for the Kar98k in Modern Warfare are the:

  • Singuard 25.1 Inch Barrel
  • A long-range scope

The Kar98k is a marksman rifle so it should be used for picking players off from a distance. Therefore, there are no real suggested attachments that stand out for this weapon. 

However, the Singuard 25.1 inch barrel is statistically the best attachment for the weapon as it increases the weapon’s damage range and accuracy.

A long-range scope of the player’s choice is advisable. Check out our suggested class setups for the Kar98k below.
