The R700 (called the Remington 700 in the game files and the official strategy guide) is a bolt-action sniper rifle that appears in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. It is one of the most powerful sniper rifles available. It can also be used in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but only through console commands.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare & Modern Warfare Remastered
- "Bolt-action sniper rifle. Effective at long range."
- — In-game description
In the campaign, this weapon can only be used in the level "The Sins of the Father" as a starting weapon, although it comes with little ammo. It is possible to replenish the ammo for it, as it shares ammo with G3. In "Heat", Mac is heard providing sniper support with what sounds to be an R700, however, the player cannot obtain it in this level. The R700 is the only bolt-action rifle to be obtainable in the campaign, as the M40A3 is exclusive to multiplayer.
In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's multiplayer, the R700 is the fourth sniper rifle to be unlocked. It is much like the M40A3, except it only holds four rounds, has more reliable damage multipliers, and has greater recoil and sway. However, with Stopping Power they both deal equal damage in most situations, making the M40A3 far superior if planning to use Stopping Power as a perk. When not using Stopping Power, it will kill in one shot to the head, chest or shoulders, doing the same damage as the Barrett .50cal and Dragunov. Being a low capacity bolt action rifle, the R700's greatest asset is its sheer stopping power. It can take out players using Juggernaut with a shot to the chest, neck, or head while used with Stopping Power.
The R700's sway is set to six degrees whereas all other sniper rifles are set to four degrees; meaning that the R700 will move more if breath is not held, and it takes longer to steady while a player is holding their breath.

Was Yesterday", and "Of Their Own Accord", via console command "give remington700", as well as Special Ops "Wetwork" and "Armor Piercing". It still retains the sprinting animation from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
- "Bolt-action sniper rifle. Hand loaded with improved handling speeds and faster rechamber. 1-shot kill to the head or upper chest."
- — In-game description
The R700 returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War as the Pelington 703.
The Pelington 703 is used in "Nowhere Left to Run" to eliminate Arash Kadivar, and is the secondary weapon in "Operation Red Circus" to eliminate Vadim Rudnik. The Pelington 703 appears again in "Break on Through", this time with a wooden stock, when protecting a ridge from the Viet Cong.
The Pelington 703 can be brought into any map via Create-A-Class, at Loadout rarity. It can be rolled from the Mystery Box at the cost of 950 Essence and can appear as a wall-buy in Outbreak gamemode, both in any rarity. When upgraded via the Pack-a-Punch Machine, it becomes the Pellegrino Della Morte gaining increased damage, magazine size and the ability of reloading two rounds per bullet hand loaded.
