And now, it’s time for the most important weapon of them all. Kar98. Although the damage it inflicts o upper and lower torso, there is not much of a hope for your opponent when a bullet from Kar98 meets with the skull of your opponent. Finally, do not forget parts such as scopes that supplement your weapons.
The devil is in details
He weapons and equipment are found mostly inside the houses. All the doors remain closed when the game first starts. If there is an open door, either someone else has been there before or there is still someone there. Since your opponents may probably think just like this, do not forget to close all the doors of the houses you enter. By the way, if you are about to enter into a house, equip your headphones and turn up your volume to max.
