The Karabiner 98k is a German rifle.


Developed from the Gewehr 98 and being one of the final developments of the Mauser military rifles, the Karabiner 98k was the primary rifle for the German forces in World War II, a status that was maintained until the end of the war despite being supplemented by semi-automatic and automatic rifles.

In Battlegroup42 the Karabiner 98k is the primary weapon of the German rifleman class, engineer class, and sniper class for most scenarios set in the first half of the war. The sniper class has access to a scope-mounted version, whereas the rifleman class has access to a bayonet as well as a grenade launcher.
