The K43 (or G43) is a semi-automatic rifle in the Day of Defeat series. It is only in the original game and can only be used by the German team.
The K43 looks almost like a real-life K43 used by the Germans during WWII. Like the M1 Garand, it has the ability to kill an enemy in one shot, if the shot lands in the chest of head area. It also has some advantages over some semi-automatics as it can be reloaded mid-mag, has a secondary fire function which is a butt-stock hit (just like the Garand), and boasts a higher firing rate.
