The Kar98k is a German bolt-action rifle featured in the Zombies maps of Call of Duty: World at War and the revised World at War maps in Call of Duty: Black Ops.
The Kar98k can be bought off the wall in both games, possessing a five round ammo capacity and fifty held ammunition. It has a slow rate of fire, hence it's bolt-action nature, very low recoil, and high power. It is good to use during the early rounds and can be used even up to round six if going for headshots.
The Pack-a-Punched Kar98k becomes the "The Armageddon," possessing an eight round ammo capacity and 60 held ammunition. It is not advisable to Pack-a-Punch this weapon, as it still retains a low amount of power and low effectiveness during the higher rounds.
