The Pelington is currently considered the best sniper in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, so in this guide we’ll be teaching you how to deck it out properly. Our Pellington 703 loadout aims to keep your shots stable, reloads rapid, and even offers a chance to land those necessary noscopes when surprised at close range. Here are all the parts you’ll need:

  • Optic: None
  • Muzzle: Stabilizer .308
  • Barrel: 26.5” Tiger Team
  • Body: Steady Aim Laser
  • Underbarrel: None
  • Magazine: 7 RND
  • Handle: Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Stock: None

The key to success with this loadout is precision, but if you’re using a sniper rifle, you knew that already. The biggest player here is the 26.5” Tiger Team barrel on the Pelington 703. What you’re after are the damage, fire rate, and bullet velocity buffs. Unfortunately it’ll take you until level 45 to unlock, meaning you really need to put in the work to get it. The Steady Aim Laser will help you hip fire at close range, and the Airborne Elastic Wrap will keep you on target with incoming shots, though again it takes a long time to unlock.

We recommend pairing the sniper with an SMG secondary like the MP5, and the Flak Jacket perk to stop players from nading you out of position. Gung Ho is also a great choice as it’ll let you reload while repositioning, and also swap weapons faster. Feel free to modify the rest of your items for the Pelington 703 loadout.
