PLAYER Unknown’s BATTLEGROUNDS KAR98K – The BEST SNIPER Rifle or the SLOWEST? BATTLEGROUNDS KAR98K


Welcome to the kar98k in player unknown’s
battlegrounds. Today we will take a look at the most widely
used sniper rifle in battlegrounds, the karabiner 98 kurz. I will show you the statistics, I will take
it to the shooting range and I will compare it with the sks. The Karabiner 98 kurz is a bolt-action rifle
that was adopted in 1935 as the standard service rifle for the German Wehrmacht. It was one of the final developments in the
long line of Mauser military rifles. The kar 98 k is a step up from the sks, it’s
a proper sniper rifle and if you’re lucky you might find it lying around somewhere but
don’t be surprised when you are chasing the airplane because someday you might find
a kar 98k in one of those airdrops. In Battlegrounds, the kark 98 is a vintage
sniper rifle and I will start with the stats so that you know what this gun is all about. The power rating of the kar98k is 66. This is higher than the rating of 50 for the
sks so we are dealing with a more powerful weapon. The range is 80 and that is pretty good. There are only 2 weapons in battlegrounds
that can do better and those are the m24 and the awm. The kar98k has a stability rating of 34 which
is good for a sniper rifle but the firing rate is only 5 and here lies the biggest weakness
of the kar 98 k. It’s incredibly slow, only the crossbow is
slower, I think that says enough. The kark 98 uses the 7.62 mm cartridge and
it has 5 bullets in one magazine. You can increase these stats by using the
right attachments. The flash hider for sniper rifles eliminates
the muzzle flash and it slightly reduces horizontal and vertical recoil. The compensator for sniper rifles slightly
reduces the horizontal recoil and it reduces the vertical recoil. In other words the compensator has a bigger
effect on the vertical recoil but it doesn’t hide the muzzle flash. You can also attach bullet loops, this item
increases the reload speed and one of the best attachments that you can find is a suppressor
for a sniper rifle. At this very moment, the suppressor does not
have any negative effects, it does not affect the damage. This might change is the future but that is
not very likely since there aren’t that many suppressors in the game. Let’s compare the kar 98 k with the sks. You already know that the sks has a lower
power rating but it also has a lower rating for range, only 64 vs 80. So the kark wins the first 2 rounds. It’s different story when we look at the stability,
48 for the sks and only 34 for the kar. The biggest difference between these weapons
is the firing rate. The sks is a dmr so it’s normal that it has
a higher firing rate, but the difference is massive, 32 vs 5 and that changes a lot. I will go to the firing range with our kark
98 so that we can see how it performs. The first test is designed to show whether
you should adjust your aim or not when firing consecutive rounds. Imagine that you found a kar98k but you didn’t
find a 4x or an 8x scope, so you are stuck with a red dot or something similar, you see
your next victim in the distance, but you can’t really zoom in enough with your scope. Nevertheless, you aim and you decide to take
the shot. Since the guy is too far away for your scope,
it’s unlikely that you are going to be able to get a headshot so you will have to fire
twice. The questions is, should you adjust your aim
or will your weapon automatically center back to the neutral position. Let’s find out, as you can see, the weapon
never goes back to the neutral position, it always goes to a point slightly higher than
where you were aiming when you took your previous shot. This means that when you try to shoot at your
next victim, that you should adjust your aiming point after each shot. This comes naturally with a 4x, 8x or 15x
scope but it’s definitely something to keep in mind if you only had a holographic sight
for example because the last thing that you want is for this guy to turn around and to
shoot you instead because you didn’t know that you had to adjust your aim. The next game that I played, I found another
kar 98k and I brought it back with me to the shooting range. I also eum, found an 8x scope from somebody
who didn’t need it any more, if you know what I mean. The reason why I brought it here was to show
you the bullet drop for the kark in player unknown’s battlegrounds. If you aim at the middle of a longer range
target then your bullet will end up hitting the first black ring around the center of
the target. So you will have to make a small correction
for the bullet drop. So if you aim slightly higher then your bullet
will hit the center of the target. What about the damage model and the effect
of the different levels of protection? You will have to fire 2 bullets if you aim
at your enemy’s torso unless he is wearing the highest level of armor, in that case you
are going to need one extra bullet. If you aim at your enemy’s head then you will
only need 1 bullet unless he wearing the highest level of protection, then you will need another
bullet to finish the job. If you compare this with the sks then you
can see that you will need only 1 headshot to kill if he wasn’t wearing a helmet, otherwise
you will need 2. You will need 2 body shots to kill a guy who
isn’t wearing any body armor and you will need one more bullet to kill that same guy
if he managed to find any form of protection. Don’t even try to destroy a car with this
gun, you’re not going to be able to quickly take out a vehicle with a firing rate of 5
so don’t even bother. To summarize, the kar98k has better stats
for power and for effective range compared to the sks but it can’t beat the stability
and the superior firing rate. Going for those headshots will definitely
make your life a lot easier because most of the time it’s a one shot kill. This was FOG of GAMING, thanks for watching
and I will see you in Battlegrounds. Player unknown’s battlegrounds kar98k, battlegrounds

  1. If they make the silencer drop the bullet damage of the kar98 then that would be going against the "realism" that playerunknown is going for. Silencers do not drop a bullets speed or damage/penetration in real life.

  2. So much analysis. I can answer you this question in a very simple way. Yes it is the best. 8 out if 10 times i get killed, it's with a Kar98. Every time i got top 3, it was with a Kar98.

  3. Silencer is a better flash hidder than the flash hidder. And you don't need a compesator on a bolt action after reload at that slow speed all compensation is zero.

  4. Why do you show unrelated gameplay where you are using different weapons than the one you are talking about? It is very distracting.

  5. Great damage, but I can’t hit jack shit with it for the life of me. I prefer the SKS, more used to the bullet drop and more forgiving
