For those who don’t know, it is a bolt-action rifle that is immensely powerful and accurate and was last seen in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

The Kar98k can be unlocked by completing Sector 5 of the Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone Season 4 Battle Pass. Thankfully, it’s a free-to-unlock weapon, which means you don’t have to buy the premium version of the battle pass.

However, it’s important to note that you’ll need to farm a ton of XP in order to finish Sector 5 and earn enough battle pass tokens.

We’ve laid out a few tips and tricks to level up the Season 4 battle pass quickly:

  • We highly recommend playing War mode in Modern Warfare 3 as it rewards you with a lot of XP for completing some simple objectives.
  • Don’t forget to complete daily and weekly challenges to earn additional battle pass XP.
  • Finally, make sure to use your Double Battle Pass XP tokens as they’re really helpful when you’re trying to claim a BP reward as soon as possible.

You can claim the Kar98k blueprint for free as well by finishing Sector 15 of the Season 4 battle pass. When it comes to the weapon characteristics, the Kar98k comes with high damage output followed by a slow fire rate, typically seen in bolt action rifles.

You get only five rounds before a reload, and ten rounds in the reserved magazine.

It’s renowned for many veteran players as it offers rapid ADS speed, significant damage, minimal flinch, a modest yet useful iron sight, and impressive elimination power at any range.

As always, you can further improve the weapon’s performance by pairing it with the right attachments. If you’re unable to figure out the best class setup, make sure to check back for our Kar98k loadout guide to maximize the potential of this weapon.
