The Pelington 703 is one of the most agile snipers that has been seen in the history of the Call of Duty franchise, with incredible speed and accuracy making it extremely popular among the quick-scoping community.

Also known in real life as the R700/M24, the US army adopted its use in 1986.


This weapon has some tough competition from alternative snipers in Season 6 of Black Ops Cold War, but there is a range of attachments to equip in order to get the biggest advantage over the opposition.

Pelington 703 Cold War

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.

  • Visiontech 2x (Optic)
  • Stabilizer .308 (Muzzle)
  • 25” Reinforced Heavy (Barrel)
  • Infiltrator Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Steady Aim Laser (Body)
  • Tactical Stock (Stock)
  • Fast Loader (Magazine)
  • Speed Tape (Handle)

This particular combination of attachments fully utilises the Gunfighter Wildcard, enabling you to select eight attachments for your primary weapon.

All eight of the attachments increase the speed, accuracy, and firepower of the Pelington which increases its outright versatility, allowing you to use the sniper in a variety of scenarios rather than having to play patiently.

Pelington 703 Cold War Pro Class

Although the sniper rifles are a part of the controversial Gentlemen's Agreement in professional play, there's nothing stopping you from using a sniper in League Play! Here's our ultimate League Play loadout for the Pelington.

  • Stabilizer .308 (Muzzle)
  • 27.2" Combat Recon (Barrel)
  • Bruiser Grip (Underbarrel)
  • Field Tape (Handle)
  • CQB Pad (Stock)

This set of attachments provides increases in a number of areas that have a significant effect on your speed and mobility. 

With a guaranteed one-shot kill from anywhere above the chest, the combination of mobility and deadly accuracy is a sure-fire way to score an opening pick in Search & Destroy or even perhaps a great way to halt the opening offence in a Control match.

Pelington 703 Cold War Best Loadout


  • 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.


  • C4

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 Upgrade

  • 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
  • Quartermaster
  • 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.



  • Gunfighter

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!
