Yo, lots of people were confused or interested in the removal of the hooded sights on the kar98 and i just leveled up to 50 (partly thanks to the messed up stats lululul) so here it is:








Unfortunately there isn't any option to revert back to the original sights after you unlock it, so you better hope you prefer these to the originals. Also look how clean that **** is, 'weapon condition' says it's 'select grade'. Mang, i believe dat.

Tripwire, why do you insist on fking with my precious Karabiner?

First the forced bayonett, now THIS?! A DOWNGRADE?!

Sighthood blows in real-life imo. Glad to see it off as an option please.

Although i'm probably not the only person who would prefer to spawn with a random condition gun rather than the same one everytime. But i don't care about levelling up or whatevers.

The sight hoods on real K98s I have used are often removed. It's only there to reduce glare on the front sight and protect from damage but it makes it darker and blocks your view. They're easy to remove.

Have you ever fired a gun? There is a reason why sighthoods exists, there was a reason why K98's got them. They vastly reduce glare and make aiming so much easier.

Yeah ... removing the sight hood IS a downgrade. K98s only lacked the sight hood early in the war, and they were added sometime around 1942 I believe, so it makes absolutely no sense to lose the sight hood with time ...

Sigh.

you can remove the sighthood on any kar with some telephone pliers. It gives a clearer sight picture so imho its a good upgrade. I rather have a weapon remove the sighthood than obtain a MP40-II or MKB42.

Some soldiers actually removed the sight hood themselves by cutting and sanding it.

Better target acquisition maybe...or maybe they were old vets who preferred the earlier models without the hood.

I disagree. the sighthood's metal itself is thin enough to not have any impact on sight picture, especially not at normal (200-500) ranges.

Pics incoming


Sorry for not having aligned it properly, was not easy to keep steady with my knees.
