Season 6 AR Guide: Best AR In Cold War: All Assault Rifles With Loadout [Season 6]

If you are not into sniper rifles while playing multiplayer matches in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, then you must stick to the SMGs, ARs, or shotguns. For season 6 SMGs class setups, we previously curated MP5, AK74u, and AUG loadouts that can be helpful should you want to kick off this season with SMGs only. However, if the short-range, high rate of fire weapons is not your forte, then you can check out our M16 and AK47 assault rifle loadouts as well.

The Best Sniper for Quickscoping in COD Cold War

Since the launch of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Pelington has been a go-to sniper rifle for quick scoping since day one. One of the many reasons why this weapon became a favorite for quick scoping in multiplayer lobbies was that, at the launch of the game, only three sniper rifles were a part of the base game. Out of the three, Pelington was the only one to have a high ADS or speed in layman’s terms. Since the high ADS made it much easier to quickly aim down the sight and take a shot at the enemy, Pelington became the go-to sniper rifle in multiplayer lobbies.

However, the meta changed when the LW3 Tundra was released for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War as downloadable content (DLC). This sniper rifle was way more consistent than Pelington, and it quickly became the go-to sniper rifle not just for quick scoping but also to one-shot an opponent. From this point on till season 6, the contest for the best quick scoping sniper rifle always has between Pelington and LW3 Tundra.

Pelington or LW3 Tundra

Regardless of which sniper rifle you choose to main as your go-to sniper rifle in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, both come with a set of certain pros and cons. Pelington has high speed, but LW3 Tundra is more consistent in landing killing shots. Most of the Pelington’s shots can turn out to be hit markers; however, that is hardly a case with LW3 Tundra. To land a deathblow shot, players need to be more accurate and shoot a target at the chest, shoulder, or head while using the Pelington. However, if you are using LW3 Tundra, even a belly shot can get your opponent eliminated provided you have equipped the right attachments and increased the weapon’s base damage.

So, it all depends on how good you are with Pelington or LW3 Tundra. We think the former has a slow learning curve as compared to the latter one.

This is why we have mentioned here complete Pelington and LW3 Tundra season 6 quick scoping loadout.

Best LW3 Tundra Class Cold War Quickscope Loadout

LW3 Tundra on stock is already a perfect one-shot material sniper rifle. However, you can take the overall stability, handling, ADS, and damage up a notch by equipping the best attachments in it. Moreover, the primary weapon alone is not the sole deciding factor for an efficient field loadout; you must equip the secondary weapon, wildcard, perks, and equipment accordingly to the playstyle as well. That is why we have curated a complete LW3 season 6 quickscope loadout for you.
