Nazi ZombiesEdit

In Nazi Zombies, the upgraded Type 38 seems to create an electrical explosion after an currently undetermined number of kills. the damage of the explosion, while not yet determined, seems to be at least half as powerful as the sniper shot itself, if not just as powerful.




  • Despite the weapon being a Type 38, "九九式小銃" can be seen on the scope, which translates to "Type 99".
  • Much like the Type 99 Arisaka from World at War the Type 38 has the Imperial Japanese chrysanthemum seal on the reciever which can best be seen when reloading.
