Cry of Fear Wiki

The Gewehr 43 is a weapon in Cry of Fear, available since the 1.4 patch update.


It's only available in Co-op or Suicide mode. Deals slightly less damage than the Hunting Rifle, but compensates this light lack of power with a 10 rounds magazine, making it very useful if you're facing the SawcrazyTallers or being surrounded by many enemies.


  • Large magazine size
  • Versatile
  • Decent rate of fire
  • Highly accurate


  • Has quite a fair bit of recoil
  • Long reload time
  • Can be cumbersome
  • Only one appears in every level of survival (except in some custom suicide maps where there are around 2 or 3)
  • Ammo is really scarce
  • Whipping it will drain a small amount of stamina


Firing sound


  • The Gewehr 43 (Also known as the Karabiner 43) is a combat rifle developed by Nazi Germany during World War II, with the aim of producing a powerful and reliable rifle that could be mass produced easily, with the aim of improving combat efficiency.
  • The G43 is a powerful 7.92x57mm Mauser semi-automatic rifle having muzzle velocity of 776 m/s.
  • The rifle had a 10 round magazine, and the gun incorporated the use of gas from the firing of the bullet to open the breech and reload the gun.
  • This was simplified over the system in its predecessor, the G41, which was unreliable and prone to fouling.
  • The gun fell out of demand after the end of the war.
