For quickscopers, the Pelington 703 sniper rifle is as good as it gets in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer. The Pelington is the fastest sniper in its class, making it the easiest weapon to use for quickscoping. While it falls a little short in the damage department, it can still be a monster on the map with the right loadout.

Since the beginning of Black Ops Cold War, there’s been a debate as to which sniper is better: the LW3 Tundra or the Pelington 703. While that question won’t be answered today, the Pelington 703 does make its mark in multiplayer, thanks to its quickscoping prowess.

As the Pelington is the best for quickscoping, its recommended loadout focuses on that. Quickscoping, for those who may not know, is a term coined for snipers that involves barely scoping in when killing an enemy. This allows players to rapidly chain together kills and not worry about holding their breath for extended periods of time.

With the Pelington 703, specifically, Black Ops Cold War offers some great attachments to boost its ADS, sprint-to-fire time and overall damage. With all of this paired together, the weapon is a force on any map.

  • Muzzle: Sound Moderator
  • Barrel: 26.5″ Tiger Team
  • Magazine: Vandal Speed Loader
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: Raider Pad

For this loadout, players can stay stealthy with the Sound Moderator and deal extra damage with the aid of the 26.5″ Tiger Team barrel. The Tiger Team barrel also increases the sniper’s fire rate, bullet velocity and reload speed. The only sacrifice is  starting ammo and maximum ammo capacity.

Thankfully, that’s not a problem with the Vandal Speed Loader. After all, quickscoping is all about speed, so having a doubly quick reload speed helps the Pelington keep a quick pace.

Finally, the keys to the loadout are the Airborne Elastic Wrap and Raider Pad. Both of these attachments are vital to quickscoping and success with the Pelington. The former increases ADS speed and the latter increases sprint-to-fire time. Hip-fire accuracy suffers greatly but that’s not what the loadout was designed for.
