Pro Sniper Loadout: Vanguard Gun Class (Kar98k)

We’re back with another competitive gun guide for Call of Duty Vanguard. This time we will be focusing on the most popular sniper rifle in the game, the Kar98k.

After a whole CDL season without snipers in the Cold War, it’s good to see the snipers back in the hands of players like Dashy and Simp. Due to the amount of attachment GA’s there isn’t much variety in the sniper classes. Below, we will show two distinct pro player builds that emphasize quickscoping vs. hard scoping.

Base Kar98k Sniper Stats

The two classes we will be focusing on come from Los Angeles Thieves player Octane and Atlanta FaZe Search and Destroy coach x2Pac ThuGLorD. Both players choose to employ the VDD 660MM 05HE Barrel, the Heavy Foregrip and the Lengthened Ammo type but differ severely in the other attachments.


Octane Class


Octane’s class provides a longer damage range and the Quickscope proficiency which provides “improved accuracy for a short time after aiming down sights.” With the On-Hand kit, you can throw your utility faster to help your teammates or finish off a weakened enemy.

Muzzle: F8 Stabilizer
Barrel: VDD 660MM 05HE
Underbarrel: Heavy Foregrip
Ammo Type: Lengthened

2Pac Class


2Pac’s class has the added strafe speed as well as the Deep Breath kit and is more targeted towards hard scoping rather than quickscoping. The Fleet proficiency allows you to move around the map faster and swap weapons quickly if you find your self in a situation where the sniper isn’t the most ideal gun.

Give both of these a spin in ranked play. We’ll definitely see pros whipping these classes out in CDL for the rest of the season.
