Snipers are just as powerful as ever in Black Ops Cold War, though scoping in quickly can be improved by certain attachments. Here is the best possible loadout designed just for quickscoping.

Earlier Call of Duty titles had very few attachments to speak of. Each category had a handful to pick from, though Black Ops Cold War’s Gunsmith comes with dozens of unique modifications for every weapon.

If you want a sniper built for holding down a location over time, you can do that. If you want a sniper just for quickscoping, you have that option as well thanks to the fine-tuning features.

Quickscoping has already come under fire due to just how powerful it can be in the right hands. If you’re looking to make the most out of your sniper but don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s the optimal quickscoping loadout in Black Ops Cold War.

Best Pelington 703 loadout for quickscoping

The Pelington will have you scoping in quicker than any other sniper.
  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 26.5 Tiger Team
  • Magazine: 7 Rnd
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Pad

First and foremost, you have three snipers to pick from. While the LW3-Tundra is a solid option, the level one Pelington 703 is slightly better in almost every way. From speed to accuracy, this is the weapon you’ll need if quickscoping is on the agenda.

Unlike powerful Assault Rifle loadouts, you won’t actually need the Gunfighter Wildcard to make the most of the Pelington. Five attachments is plenty for this particular setup. Instead, run with Lawbreaker so that you can carry an MP5 secondary with you for close-range situations.

Firstly, the Stabilizer .308 Muzzle is ideal for sway control. While other Muzzles can further improve this stat, they come with heavy ADS speed tradeoffs, the last thing you want when building a quickscoping class.

Next up you’ll want the 26.5 Tiger Team Barrel. It’s the only Barrel that gives bonus damage without having any real downsides when it comes to quickly aiming down sights. When quickscoping, Sprint to Fire time is also vital. Therefore, the Raider Pad Stock is absolutely perfect for the most powerful sniper setup in the game.

Rounding out the attachments, the Airborne Elastic Wrap Handle is a given though it will take some grinding to unlock. For the fifth slot, you can choose between two key options. We’ve gone for the 7 Rnd Mag to improve the clip size among other things. Though you can replace this with a Steady Aim Laser if you prefer to hip fire.

Perks are free to mix and match, though Ghost should be a lock for the third slot. With this loadout, you’ll be aiming down sights in the blink of an eye and snapping to targets with ease.

How to get .50 GS pistol in Call of Duty Mobile

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
