Karabiner K98 Kurz Sound Mod - Historical


Heya guys,

This mod changes the standard sound of the Karabiner 98 Kurz to a historically accurate one. This sound was on the top priority list for me because I absolutely love bolt action rifles!

The new sound features way more kick, and adds some more historical value to the gun. I hope you like this as much as I do!

Not all weaponsounds appear to be moddable, so don't get mad if I cannot mod your favourite weapon. I'm trying my utmost, please understand that. Weapons not being moddable isn't something that's on my side, it's on Tripwire's

1. Sub to this mod
2. Start the game
3. Enjoy! (yes it's that simple)


Method 1. (recommended as first)

1.1. No need to backup

1.2. Delete the file \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98.upk

Method 2. (for more safety, takes longer though. Recommended if method 1 doesn't work for you)

2.1. Backing up
Needless to say but I still will. If you want to stay on the safe side, you have to copy and paste this file somewhere else to keep it safe:
YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98.upk

2.2. Restoring and uninstalling the mod if you didn't backup the file
Delete: YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98.upk

Then head to \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98.upk
Delete that too.

Then verify the integrity of the game's cache. I don't know how long this takes though. It might take a while.

2.3. Restoring and uninstalling if you have the backup file
Replace: YourDisk:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\ROGame\BrewedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98_Sn.upk with your backup file

Then head to \Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC\Packages\Audio\AUD_Firearms_Rifle_Kar98.upk
Delete that too.
- Thanks to HerrFockeWulf for testing this out with me!
- Thanks to Notice Me Senpai for requesting this gun!
- This does work on multiplayer, but maybe not on all servers
- Keep in mind that this mod only changes the sound your own gun produces. You will still hear the normal sound coming from other K98k players.
- For me one of my sound mods causes disconnection after Match end, when it starts loading. You just have to rejoin the server via server browser.

Good luck!


P.S. I cannot be held responsible for you failing to read the description. If you have any problems, I'll try to help you the best I can.

I have a real K98, it sounds nothing like this...But I understand that it's hard to made accurate sound for video-games. But still a good sound !

If i want to use this mod, do i have to delete the original audio and then subscribe to this mod?

I love all of your other sound mods but this one seems really tinny. Maybe my download got fudged up because I like everything else you do.

You have to level up the weapon - by killing enemies - and it will unlock you this better scpo with lines. I think its on the 25th level.

an original audio*
Comrade Vladimir Feb 27, 2017 @ 1:00pm 
These sounds are great, but could you please upload a original audio files for RO2? "The connection to the server has been lost" is really annoying :(.
And yes, I didnt read the description.

I really like these sound mods except the annoyance of disconecting everymatch is too much.
