The Sniper Cabinet is a utility in the first Zombies map, Nacht der Untoten. As the name suggests, it is one of two ways to acquire a sniper rifle in Nacht der Untoten (the other being the Mystery Box). Once players have opened up the upstairs room, near the location of the Trench Gun, there is a large cabinet which will give out a Scoped Kar98k for 1500 points. Contrary to popular belief, it is NOT possible to receive any other weapon from the cabinet (except for the Scoped Springfield via modding). Opening the cabinet will buy the rifle at the same time, so it is advised to switch to the player's least desired weapon before opening up the cabinet.
Due to its reasonably high price and low effectiveness of the Scoped Kar98k, it is very rare to see a player open this in a game. On the iPhone/iPod Touch version, the cabinet costs 2000 points and gives the player an M2 Flamethrower. On this version it is a good idea to open the cabinet because the Flamethrower is significantly more effective against zombies than on the console or PC, especially on the easy difficulty.
