Jackfrags has made an informative new video explaining why the Kar98k is no longer king in Warzone Season 3, and what’s taken its place.

The Kar98k is no longer the meta sniper and Jack “JackFrags” Mason has discussed why the Swiss K31 is the “new mid-range Sniper king” in Warzone Season 3.

For the longest time, the Kar98k has reigned supreme as the dominant Sniper Rifle to use in Call of Duty: Warzone Season 3. Despite being a Marksman Rifle and not a Sniper Rifle, it boasts tremendous range, great speed, and can down with one headshot. It’s even drawn criticism from the CoD community with players wanting nerfs to the powerful weapon.

But its stint as the top dog could be at an end as it appears a new contender has risen through the ranks to take the crown. Season 3 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone added the new Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle, and Jack has explained why it’s time to change to it.

Right off the bat, he says that the Swiss “beat the Kar98k, in my opinion, it’s got great bullet velocity, incredibly fast ADS (aim down sight) speed, and a decent default crosshair. It’s the new mid-range Sniper king.”

Jack also reveals the loadout he’s rocking for the Swiss K31, and you can see the full loadout below.

  • Muzzle: Sound Moderator
  • Barrel: 24.9″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
  • Ammunition: 7 Rnd
  • Rear Grip: Speed Tape

We can see why JackFrags has opted for this loadout as the Sound Moderator edges out other muzzles due to its extra ADS time. The 24.9″ Combat Recon barrel offers great bullet velocity at little expense and the SWAT 5mw Laser Sight is another sneaky addition that shines the spotlight on ADS.

The 7 Rnd mag is an easy extension for the gun’s ammunition properties and Speed Tape is a final increase to ADS, but with no penalty.

With fellow YouTuber NICKMERCS calling it the “best Sniper Rifle in Warzone Season 3 too,” expect more and more people to use the Swiss K31. It would probably be wise to start thinking about swapping your Kar98k for the new meta Sniper Rifle.
