It's a big update, to say the least, especially for fans who liked Kar98k from Call of Duty Vanguard more than two years ago.

This article will try to reveal more details surrounding the fan-favorite rifle's return to Call of Duty with Warzone and MW3 in the next season.

Note: Players are advised to take early leaks, claims, or rumors with a grain of salt unless they are officially confirmed.


Kar98k from CoD Vanguard is reportedly coming back with Warzone and MW3 Season 4

According to @CODWarfareForum on social media platform X, Kar98k in Warzone and MW3 will be a clone of the CoD Vanguard version and not the Modern Warfare 2019 version. Interestingly, this claim will raise hopes for players to witness a good overall version of the beloved marksman rifle.

During the era of the original Warzone and Vanguard, this rifle was a go-to weapon for most players. It was because of its high damage profile and easy-to-handle mechanics. It quickly became the top choice for a lot of users.

A large section of the CoD community has been asking for its return since the release of Warzone 2 in 2022. It seems like the next season will fulfill the wish of the players.

It will be interesting to see when the developers release an official blog confirming the return of the leaked rifle.
