Fans of sniping have been experimenting with the sniper rifles in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. However, not long after the game was released, every sniper rifle was hit with a nerf. Overall, the nerf caused you to both move and shoot slower when using a sniper. Despite this, sniper rifles are still strong contenders on the battlefield. This especially applies to maps that have long lines of sight such as Miami. One Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sniper rifle that has proved to be dominant is the Pellington 703. The Call of Duty community has discovered a range of attachments that makes the weapon viable at long range against other strong weapons such as the XM4.
The first attachment that is popular on the Pellington 703 is the Infantry Stabilizer Muzzle. This improves your idle sway control by 50%, improving the accuracy and handling of your weapon when aiming down sight. Following this, the 26.5 Tiger Team Barrel has numerous features that are beneficial to the Pellington 703 sniper rifle. Included is an increase to your reload speed and damage. Furthermore, using the barrel will boost your bullet velocity and fire rate.
Next, a popular attachment is the Tactical Stock, which improves your aim walking movement speed by 25%. To maximize your ammo capacity and reload quickness, equip the 7 Round Speed Magazine to the weapon. Finally, the Airborne Elastic Wrap has proven to be a strong Handle. This attachment improves the time taken to aim down sight and significantly betters your flinch resistance by 90%.
Do not underestimate the power of the Pellington 703
This particular sniper rifle’s base stats show that the weapon already has high accuracy and firepower, making it a strong contender. Thanks to the advanced gunsmith in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the Pellington 703 can be even more dominant. With the developers rolling out patch updates often, only time will tell if sniper rifles will be altered again in the future. Perhaps, the release of Season 1 could see a new sniper rifle added into the mix.
