The Pelington 703 sniper rifle from Black Ops Cold War is a force to be reckoned with in Season 3 of Warzone. Thanks to widespread buffs and nerfs to several weapons, the ever-changing metagame sees this particular rifle appear in the loadouts of several players looking to gain the upper hand on Caldera and Rebirth Island.
Armed with a bolt-action firing mechanism, the Pelington is one of the more mobile snipers to use allowing opportunities to quickscope opposition or to pick them off from a distance.
In order to maintain high damage, the best attachments are essential if you're looking to score a high number of kills during a match. With that said, find the best Pelington 703 Warzone loadout along with the best attachments to use in this guide.
What Is The Best Pelington 703 Warzone Loadout?

Other than fire rate, this particular build improves every single statistic for the Pelington. The drastic improvement in control and range makes it very easy to land your shots even from long distances.
Pelington 703 Warzone
Armed with quick aim down sight speed and a fast rechamber speed, the Pelington is arguably the most mobile sniper in the category.
While its mobility and ease of control gives it the edge of many of its counterparts, the Pelington has one of the lowest damage statistics in the category, meaning a one-shot kill will only take place when aiming at the head or the upper chest, leaving minimal room for error.
The lack of damage can be rectified by selecting the right attachment combination, but what exactly are the best attachments to use on this bolt-action beast?
Best Pelington 703 Warzone Attachments
- Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
- Barrel: 27.2" Combat Recon
- Laser: SWAT 5mw Laser Sight
- Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
- Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap
This combination of attachments brings the damage in line with the likes of the AX-50 and the HDR, making it incredibly effective in those competitive mid and long-distance duels.
The laser seems like an unorthodox choice but the improvements in aim-down sight speed allow you to react to any targets that stray into your crosshairs.
Overall, this particular attachment combination is perfect for long-range combat and even close-quarters action if you can react fast enough.
Best Pelington 703 Warzone Perks and Equipment
Once the best Pelington 703 attachments are ready to use, selecting a strong Perk and Equipment combination is the next step to assembling the very best loadout. Here's what we recommend.
- Throwing Knife (Lethal)
- Stim (Tactical)
Add some flair to your Warzone gameplay by equipping the throwing knife as your lethal. It may not be as effective as a frag or a C4, but nothing comes close to scoring a kill with an expertly-timed throwing knife!
The Stim continues to appear in the loadouts of players thanks to its instant health regeneration and temporary speed boost that can allow you to escape any sticky situations.
- EOD (Perk 1)
- Overkill (Perk 2)
- Amped (Perk 3)
This combination of Perks is arguably the very best to use in all of Warzone. EOD increases your resistance to any explosives that land close by while Overkill grants you the ability to use two primary weapons in the same loadout. We recommend pairing the Pelington 703 with Vanguard's STG 44 assault rifle for some additional mid-range power.
Last and by no means least is Amped. With an increased weapon swap speed, it's very easy to swap between the two guns depending on the scenario.

Is The Pelington 703 Good In Warzone?
After testing it on Caldera and Rebirth Island, the Pelington 703 is a solid sniper rifle to use. The combination of high damage, control, and ease of mobility is reminiscent of the pre-patch Kar98k which once dominated the meta.
Depending on future weapon balancing, the sniper could find itself towards the top of the meta for a very long time.
That's how to configure the Pelington 703 for Warzone action. For more, check out our dedicated page for the latest news, leaks, and guides for Call of Duty's battle royale.
