The Kar98k is considered to be one of the best loadout choices in Warzone Pacific, so use this class to maximize your sniping talent.

The Kar98k is the best Marksman Rifle in Warzone Pacific, and this loadout class will allow you to dominate when it comes to long-range sniping and close-range quick-scoping in Caldera and Rebirth Island.

While Vanguard also brought a Kar98k to Warzone, Modern Warfare’s is a Marksman Rifle with high bullet velocity, one-shot headshots, and excellent mobility – making it the perfect choice for any Warzone Pacific playstyle. Plus, YouTuber TrueGameData discovered that it’s the best Sniper Rifle for controller players.

It has much more aim assist than the Swiss K31, which makes the best Warzone Kar98k loadout a perfect choice for snipers in both Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Here are the attachments and perks to run to make the best Warzone Kar98k loadout class during Warzone Pacific Season 1.

Best Warzone Kar98k loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″ Barrel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope (Crossthread Reticle)
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

The best Warzone Kar98k loadout improves upon the weapon’s range and bullet velocity potential while maintaining speed. As a result, you’ll be capable of taking down targets with a single headshot from any range and will get to quick-scope easily with the best Warzone Kar98k loadout.

We’ll start the best Warzone Kar98k loadout with the Monolithic Suppressor and the Singuard Custom 27.6″ to increase its effective damage range along with bullet velocity. You won’t have to worry about lead or bullet drop, so aim for the head.

However, these attachments will slow the best Warzone Kar98k loadout down. The Tac Laser and FTAC Sport Comb stock will compensate by speeding up ADS time and mobility. This way, you won’t be left vulnerable to enemy snipers for too long.

The 7x magnification of the Sniper Scope suits almost any range in Verdansk. The Sniper Scope comes with an arrow-shaped reticle as default, but after getting 200 kills using the Sniper Scope on any weapon, you will unlock the Crossthread reticle.

This is the classic cross shape, perfect for hitting long-range headshots with the best Warzone Kar98k loadout.

Best perks to use with Warzone Kar98k class

double time perk in call of duty warzone
  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped

Double Time will increase your Tactical Sprint duration as well as improve your speed while sprinting. While sniping, repositioning between shots is vital. Sprint around and keep your enemy guessing where you’ll appear from, and you’ll find sniper fights much easier.

We strongly recommend pairing an Assault Rifle or SMG with the Kar98k for close-range encounters. Overkill will allow you to take two primary weapons from your first loadout. Then you can hide from the radar with Ghost from your following loadout.

Finally, you should pick Amped as it allows you to instantly change to your secondary weapon, further increasing your speed on the map.

Most recent Kar98k buffs and nerfs

Players who have not yet added this rifle to their inventory can do so by reaching Rank 33 in either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Warzone.

Once you have reached level 33, you will be able to equip this Marksman Rifle and begin to level it up to make the best Warzone Kar98k loadout.

Best alternatives to MW Kar98k in Warzone

If you’re looking for a great alternative to the best Warzone Kar98k loadout, then you should try out the Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle. It’s got excellent bullet velocity, incredibly fast ADS, and is just as good as the Kar98. Plus, it’s believed to be the better option for mouse and keyboard players.

Or, if you’re looking to do some long-range sniping, you can’t go wrong with Modern Warfare’s HDR instead of the best Warzone Kar98k loadout.

When is Krampus leaving Warzone Pacific & Vanguard? Festive Fervor event end date

Warzone and Vanguard players are fed up with the Festive Fervor event’s Krampus monster, so when is he leaving the games for good?

Published

on

Krampus in Warzone and Vanguard

Krampus has been prowling Caldera and Vanguard’s multiplayer with frustrated Warzone players claiming the monster has ruined the Festive Fervor event, so when is he leaving? 

Warzone Pacific and Vanguard’s Festive Fervor event brought plenty of Holiday-themed additions to both games, but the event has received mixed reviews, with players finding Krampus especially frustrating. This festive folklore monster hunts down players across both Caldera and multiplayer, causing a frustrating, and sometimes lethal, distraction. 

Raven Software already nerfed Krampus following complaints, but Vanguard and Warzone players are still desperate to go back to playing as normal without it interrupting their matches and giving them unnecessary deaths. 

Here’s when the Festive Fervor event is set to end, when Krampus will leave both Warzone Pacific and Vanguard.

When is Krampus removed from Warzone & Vanguard? Festive Fervor end date 

Warzone Pacific and Vanguard’s Festive Fervor Holiday event is set to end on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 10 AM PT which is when Krampus is set to leave the game. 

After this date, all of the festive content such as Shipmas, the Holiday Trees, and of course, Krampus will have left Vanguard and Warzone and the games will return to normal. 

Warzone Krampus Operator skin

It’s extremely unlikely that Krampus will be removed from Warzone and Vanguard before Festive Fervor ends, as the monster is tied into the challenges. In Warzone you need to deal 365 damage to him, and in Vanguard’s multiplayer you need to eliminate him three times.

All of these challenges will be gone too, so make sure you complete them before Wednesday the 5th as they’ll then be gone forever.  

In the meantime, you can check out the easiest way to kill Krampus so he doesn’t affect your games too much.

Warzone players demand fix for pay-to-win invisible skin ruining the game

Warzone players are demanding that Raven Software fix the invisible Battle Pass skin that has been plaguing Caldera and Rebirth Island.

invisible warzone tier 100 battle pass skin

An invisible Operator skin has been ruining matches of Warzone Pacific since the launch of Season 1, and players are demanding the pay-to-win outfit gets fixed.

With the majority of Warzone’s developers being off work for the holidays, a number of game-breaking bugs and glitches have plagued Caldera and Rebirth Island. Broken Shotguns, players respawning with their loadouts, and broken audio are just a few of the issues.

However, players have completely lost patience with the Awoken Francis skin, which turns players completely invisible – except for a floating orange mask. Now that Raven Software are returning from their holiday break, players are demanding a fix.

Francis Awoken skin in CoD Warzone

Warzone has had trouble with invisible skins in the past, with the Forest Spirit bundle turning players invisible, as well as the Attack Helicopters turning any skin invisible.

In Warzone Pacific Caldera, it’s the paid Tier 100 Battle Pass skin, Awoken Francis, that’s making players impossible to see at a distance. This issue has been known for some time, but players have only become more and more frustrated with it going unacknowledged.

Reddit continues to be ablaze with players complaining about the skin and demanding it fixed. ‘evilmonk234‘ asked “How could Raven let a skin be invisible for more than a day?” They said it’s “honestly so ridiculous they can’t test to see if a skin is f**king invisible past 30m.”

They clarified that they don’t blame the devs for not fixing it over the holidays, but that “they should not release it this way in the first place. At the very least, when you hear about it early on, just remove the skin until it’s fixed.”

evilmonk234 isn’t alone, as players have been complaining over the entirety of the holiday period. But, now that Raven Software devs have returned to work, we expect this glitch to be fixed soon.

For more Call of Duty news, you can check out the recent leaks about CoD 2022 receiving a Rainbow Six Siege-like mode and that classic MW2 maps will be making a return.

Best XM4 loadout for CoD: Warzone Pacific Season 1

The XM4 is superb for fights at all ranges in Warzone Pacific. Here are the attachments and Perks to make the best Warzone XM4 loadout.

Best XM4 loadout for Warzone Pacific

The XM4 is an excellent Assault Rifle in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific Season 1, so here is the best XM4 loadout class to make the most of this meta gun across Caldera and Rebirth Island.

The XM4 Assault Rifle, modeled after the original Black Ops’ Commando, is a medium-range weapon perfect for your primary Assault Rifle or as an accompaniment to a long-range Sniper Rifle.

Even with Warzone Pacific Season 1 bringing across all of Vanguard’s weapons as well as various buffs and nerfs, the XM4 has remained firmly in the meta.

So, here are the attachments and Perks to make the best Warzone XM4 loadout class to maximize the potential of this Assault Rifle in Caldera and Rebirth Island.

Best Warzone Pacific XM4 loadout attachments

Best Warzone XM4 loadout attachments

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 13.5″ Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Ammunition: STANAG 60 Round

To make sure the best Warzone XM4 loadout is laser-accurate, we’re adding the Field Agent Grip. With this attachment, the XM4 will be as accurate as it needs to be at close-medium ranges. With some recoil control, you’ll also be able to beam enemies at a distance when the best Warzone XM4 loadout is equipped.

The 13.5″ Task Force barrel received a significant buff all the way back in Cold War Season 5, which improved bullet velocity, range, and recoil control at the cost of some mobility. You should add the Agency Suppressor to the best Warzone XM4 loadout for even more velocity, which increases the weapon’s damage range while keeping you off the minimap.

We’re going with the STANAG 60 Round to ensure we have enough ammo to take down multiple enemies when using the best Warzone XM4 loadout. Finally, the XM4’s iron sights are quite obtrusive, so you’ll want to use the Axial Arms 3x if you’re looking for more range with the best Warzone XM4 loadout.

Best Perks & equipment to use with Warzone XM4 class

best perks warzone xm4 loadout class
  • Perk 1: E.O.D
  • Perk 2: Overkill / Ghost
  • Perk 3: Combat Scout
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Heartbeat Sensor

E.O.D will allow you to withstand Semtex, Grenades, and a large quantity of any other serious explosive throwables. With so many players using Semtex or C4 to gain the upper hand in a fight, you’ll need E.O.D if you have any hope of surviving.

Overkill will allow you to get two primary weapons from your loadout. Then you can take the Ghost Perk from your next one, hiding you from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Caldera’s thick jungles and foliage make it difficult to spot players, so Combat Scout has become an extremely powerful choice. It will highlight and ping any enemy you shoot, allowing you to keep track of them as they run through the jungle.

The Semtex has remained a solid choice in your Lethal slot, and even after being nerfed ahead of Warzone Pacific, the Heartbeat Sensor is still a vital piece of equipment.
