Sniping fans, rejoice! The rifles on Black Ops Cold War are packing a serious punch.
The Pelington 703 is one of the most agile snipers that has been seen in the history of the franchise, with incredible speed and accuracy making it extremely popular among the quick-scoping community.
Also known in real life as the R700/M24, of which the US army adopted in 1986.
With such a variety of attachments to choose in the Gunsmith, what’s the best loadout for the Pelington 703?
Pelington 703 Sniper Rifle
The Pelington 703 resembles the MK2 Carbine marksman rifle from Modern Warfare.
It’s very easy to snap onto a target but the chance of scoring a hitmarker is high so accuracy is key in order to succeed with this weapon.
In the right hands, it has the potential to be one of the strongest weapons in the entire game.

Pelington 703: Can it counter the LW3 Tundra?
- Gallo SA 12
- Duckbill Choke (Muzzle)
- 23.7” Extended (Barrel)
- Tactical Stock (Stock)
- 9 Round (Magazine)
- Quickdraw Handle (Handle)
Rather than selecting a pistol for a secondary weapon, the Gallo SA12 shotgun is the ideal weapon to have in the back pocket if you are being pushed by a group of enemies.
More often than not, players will frequently flank around the outside in order to get the jump on the entire enemy team.
Place the C4 behind you, keep an ear out for any opponents looking to get the upper hand, and double-tap Square for an explosive result!
- Smoke Grenade
With maps like Satellite containing such a small amount of cover, having a smoke grenade to fall back on as a piece of improvised cover can often be the difference between regrouping to a safe position or an untimely death.
- Field Mic
Although the agile nature of the Pelington lends itself to a more aggressive setup, a well-placed Field Mic can provide vital information when it comes to enemies in the area.
- Tactical Mask
- Cold Blooded
This combination of perks provides a balance between personal protection and an increase in utility to further support your team.
The choice of Cold Blooded over Ghost may seem strange but with Cold Blooded making you undetectable from any AI-controlled Scorestreaks, it allows you to remain in the open for a longer period of time.
Choosing Gunfighter opens up plenty of opportunities to create the ultimate attachment combination for the Pelington. Use the attachments we mentioned earlier, and you’ll be tearing up the competition in no time at all!
