Hello and welcome back to another Forgotten Hope 2 update.

Today we are showing off a new sniper rifle that will be arming the Germans, as well as a more general update to our Karabiner 98k.

Karabiner 98k ZF 39


The first custom designed mounting for a telescope for the K98k was a late 1939 system from Mauser. Known as the ZF 39, it consisted of a socket at the front and block at the back of the receiver that the mounts on the telescope could be quickly detached from without affecting the zeroing. Numerous telescopes were adapted to this system. Ours was made by Seth Soldier.

Also by Seth Soldier, you can see that our K98k model has received a new look. This covers the ZF 41 and the Long Side Rail sniper variants as well. Expect to see the ZF 39 take over from the LSR on most of our maps, the latter not appearing in large numbers until the second half of 1944.


That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our Discord, our public forums, our Twitter, our subreddit, and/or Facebook pages to discuss this update and other news.
