Pelington 703 in Black Ops Cold War

The Pelington 703 was one of Black Ops Cold War’s most powerful snipers and remains a powerful option even after Vanguard’s release. Here’s everything you need to create the best Pelington 703 Warzone loadout, including attachments, perks, and how to unlock it.

Warzone Season 3 is here, with the Season 3 Reloaded patch making a host of weapon balancing changes. While sniper rifles received a pretty significant nerf at the start of Season 3, they can still be a strong option in the right hands.

Black Ops Cold War’s Pelington 703 is capable of taking out foes with a single shot, and it provides great mobility during long-range encounters.

You can further improve this weapon by using the best Warzone Pelington loadout class.

Best Pelington 703 Warzone attachments

Best Warzone Pelington loadout
  • Muzzle: Wrapped Suppressor
  • Barrel: 27.2″ Combat Recon
  • Laser: SWAT 5mW Laser Sight
  • Stock: SAS Combat Stock
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

We’ve built the best Warzone Pelington 703 loadout to improve the overall damage of the weapon while bringing the recoil under control. We’ll start off with the Wrapped Suppressor muzzle to improve its bullet velocity and keep you off the mini map.

Next, we’ll focus on further improving the bullet velocity of the best Warzone Pelington loadout with the 27.2″ Combat Recon barrel. Adding the SWAT 5mW Laser Sight should help with control, and can be useful if you find yourself in close-quarters combat.

Finally, as with all Sniper Rifles, you want your ADS speed to be as fast as possible. To achieve this, we’ve combined the SAS Combat Stock and Serpent Wrap.

Best perks & equipment for Warzone Pelington 703 class

Best Warzone Pelington 703 perks
  • Perk 1: Cold-Blooded
  • Perk 2: Overkill then Ghost
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Lethal: Throwing Knife
  • Tactical: Smoke Grenade

When using a Sniper Rifle, the best tactic is to find a comfortable spot to camp while you pick off your foes from a distance. If you want to avoid being found by enemies with thermal optics or High Alert, then equip the Cold-Blooded perk.

We recommend pairing the best Warzone Pelington loadout with another weapon like the Volk for up-close encounters. Overkill will allow you to carry two primary weapons, and you can pick Ghost from your second loadout drop to hide from UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors.

Finally, Amped will allow you to switch between both primary weapons on a dime, allowing you to stay in the fight no matter the situation.

As for equipment, the Throwing Knife is very useful for eliminating downed enemies fast. While the Stim has been the go-to, it’s recent nerf means it’s not as useful as before. For that reason, we reckon the Smoke Grenade could be handy to get you out of tight situations.

The Pelington 703 is immediately available when you reach level 4 in either Black Ops Cold War or Warzone. This means that you do not have to complete any unlock challenges to begin using it in your matches.

Best Warzone Pelington 703 Alternatives

There are a number of other Warzone sniper rifles that are deadly if the Pelington isn’t cutting it for you. The ZRG 20mm is probably the best in the game right now, but the HDR and 3-Line Rifle are strong alternatives too.

The STG44 has also emerged as one of the most popular weapons in the game, so is always worth trying it out too.
