Much has been made about upcoming Call of Duty 2019 title, expected to be Modern Warfare 4, but just when will Activision and Infinity Ward pull the trigger on announcing their next game?

Call of Duty fans are eagerly awaiting the official announcement about next year’s title – which is reportedly set to be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4. The Modern Warfare part of the CoD franchise is extremely popular, dating back to the release of the original Modern Warfare title in 2007.

The upcoming game has been kept tightly under wraps despite leaks pointing towards everything from the return of a single-player campaign mode, to a potential battle royale mode, and even having Modern Warfare 2 remastered attached.

Infinity WardModern Warfare 2 remastered could come alongside Modern Warfare 4.

When will Infinity Ward reveal Modern Warfare 4?

While the hugely successful franchise does switch between developers each year, the recent announcements about the upcoming titles and their respective release dates have all fallen close to each other in recent years – usually coming sometime between the beginning of April and the end of May.

The current game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for example, was announced on March 8 and first revealed to fans on May 17. A year earlier, Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty WW2 was announced on April 21.

Treyarch / ActivisionCall of Duty: Black Ops 4 was announced in early March, but took a while to be shown off.

When has Infinity Ward revealed other Call of Duty games?

Infinity Ward’s last iteration of the franchise, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, was revealed through a teaser on April 30th. Their last game before that, Call of Duty Ghosts, was not revealed until May 21.

So, fans could be looking at anywhere from the closing portion of April to the end of May, if Infinity Ward sticks to a similar announcement period as they have in the past.

While there is still no official announcement date planned for Modern Warfare 4, we are now getting to that time of year where Activision and the developers begin giving fans a look at the future.

The excruciating yearly waiting game is crawling ever so slightly to an end for another year. It won’t be long before we’re doing this all over again for Call of Duty’s 2020 title.

The Pellington 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 Pellington 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.

Best Pellington 703 loadout in Black Ops Cold War

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

Pellington 703 loadout Attachments

  • Barrell: 26.5 Tiger Team
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Magazine: 7 RND
  • Handle: Serpent Wrap
  • Stock: Marathon Stock

Perks

  • Perk 1: Tactical Mask
  • Perk 2: Gear Head
  • Perk 3: Ghost

Wild Card

  • Law Breaker

Equipment

  • Lethal: Frag Grenade
  • Tactical: Stimshot
  • Field Upgrade: Field Mic

This loadout focuses on allowing you to play aggressively. In terms of attachments, the Tiger Team barrel increases the Pellington’s damage output by 20%. This means fewer hit markers and more one-shot kills.

The Steady Aim Laser improves the effectiveness of the weapon at close range using hip-fire. Finally, the Serpent Wrap reduces the Pellington’s ADS time by 10%, making it a perfect attachment for any of the snipers in Cold War.

The Pellington 703 has the fastest ADS time out of any sniper in Cold War.

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.

Now, all there’s to do is make this Pellington 703 loadout and try it out in Multiplayer for yourself.
