  • The K98 Classic is a starting weapon for Sniper, starting at level 15. This basic marksman rifle provides range and accuracy while keeping its user away from the fight. It suffers from a small magazine, low max ammo, and long reload time.

    In Arena, it can be purchased for Sniper as a Series 1 weapon.

    The abbreviation for this weapon is 'K98.'
