The Pelington 703 is the perfect weapon for players looking to play aggressively with a sniper rifle in CoD Black Ops Cold War.
Black Ops Cold War has three different snipers and each of them suits a different playstyle. For players who prefer to push others and maneuver around the map, the Pelington 703 should be your weapon of choice.
It’s worth noting that Cold War has the longest ADS time for snipers out of any Call of Duty game. This has led to players struggling to quick-scope consistently and writing off snipers as weak. Although there are certainly easier weapons to master in Cold War, nothing will beat landing multiple shots with a sniper in a single streak.
Despite Cold War’s long ADS times, there are a number of attachments that can mitigate this and give you a sniper loadout that’s lethal in online matches.

Here’s how you need to kit out your Pellington 703 sniper for the most effective multiplayer loadout.

This loadout focuses on allowing you to play aggressively. In terms of attachments, the Tiger Team barrel increases the Pelington’s damage output by 20%. This means fewer hit markers and more one-shot kills.
The combination of the Airborne Elastic Wrap and the Raider Stock signficantly increases your ADS and sprint to fire time on the weapon. This makes quickscoping a breeze and allows you to mavuvre around the map without being punished.
The addition of the Steady Aim Laser is just to allow you to no-scope when it’s neccessary. This attachment can be a game-changer when you come into contact with an enemy round a corner, so don’t write it off.
Moving onto perks, Tactical Mask is always useful to have when running an aggressive loadout that is seeking gunfights. The combination of Gear Head and the Field Mic is a great pairing for multiplayer and allows you to spam your field upgrade on cooldown. Finally, Ghost gives you the peace of mind that the endless spy planes in the air can’t track your every move when you’re running around the map.
Equipment in this loadout is fairly standard but you should focus on using the Field Mic whenever it’s off cooldown to gain valuable information. The reduced cooldown from the Gear Head perk is incredibly useful and will allow you to track the location of the enemy team.
Although this loadout can be used in Warzone, it’s more tailored to the smaller maps that Cold War offers. Despite this, if you’re looking for a sniper laodout to dominate Warzone, check out our Kar98k Warzone loadout guide here.
