Karabiner 98 Kurz

The Karabiner 98 Kurz is the shortened derivative of the Mauser 98 chambered in 7.92x57 Mauser (The in-game version uses 7.62mm). Adopted by the German Wehrmacht in 1935, it is considered to be the pinnacle of bolt action design of that era. The Mauser action has been nearly universally copied in every bolt action rifle since its introduction. This is currently the only bolt-action sniper rifle that drops normally on maps, whereas the other bolt-action sniper rifles only come in airdrops. Because of this, the Karabiner 98 Kurz is usually a very good weapon for long-range engagements without having the risk of going to airdrops for sniper rifles.

"This is currently the only bolt-action sniper rifle that drops normally on maps, whereas the other bolt-action sniper rifles only come in airdrops." that's not the case anymore, M24 is the same, but kar98 became common because it used to be a common drop, now all snipers became a rare find.
