Quote
"This is one of those weapons that any marksman hopes to get their hands on. Stunning damage with stunning precision, great for picking from a far; but risky, since you have only one shot for one head every few seconds. I wouldn't be using it if there's about ten zombies after me."

Summary

This weapon is great for picking off zombies at long ranges, but you have to be careful when using this at a mid or close range. It's very hard to deal with bunny hopping zombies, so it's best to generally avoid close quarters. Bringing a reliable secondary to deal with zombies at close range is recommended. It's high ammo pool and decent firerate makes it a formidable foe in gamemodes such as Free For All.

This is a sniper, so headshots are a one shot on most zombies, so try to aim for those.

Background Story

This bolt-action rifle was popular with many hunters before the SANI Virus took over. To avoid attacking zombies from only close range, some sharpshooting survivors began to equip this rifle to snipe down zombies with a single shot. The Remington 700 is favoured for its incredible accuracy, the damage of its high calibre, and nothing but a decent range and a satisfying firing sound.

The Remington 700 did receive multiple calibre changes throughout its lifetime. With the first calibre used being the 6.8mm, then the 30-06, and eventually the NATO standard 7.62x51mm bullet it now uses. 

Tips

  • Bringing a reliable secondary is a good idea. Virtually all secondaries couple well with the Remington, aside from the M202 which does not have enough ammo to act as a suitable backup weapon.
  • Make sure you can hit or kill a zombie with your shots. Try to make shots count to conserve ammo.
    • This can one shot normal zombies, with Hard ammo.
    • Using it to fight a Brute isn't the best idea since you only have 5 shots per mag, meaning people can steal the kill while you reload.
  • The Remington 700, Barrett 50 Cal, and the Dragunov are an Edgar's worst enemy, so keep that in mind.
  • It is recommended to use first-person and ADS with this weapon.
    • Using the Vortex 30mm Scope gives the Remington 700 even more accuracy.
    • Using the LP Hawkview grants night vision (when scoping in) and a small amount of accuracy.
  • On Party Deathmatch, it can perform decently since players don't have any extra health.
    • On Free For All, this weapon can be devastating due to its high damage output for its ammunition.
  • Use armors such as the Tactical I to get large amounts of extra ammunition.
