The Remington 700 is featured in-game in multiple variants chambered in .243 Winchester, .270 Winchester and .300 Winchester Magnum. It is worth noting that all versions originally are remotely similar to their prototype, but the .243 version was subsequently changed to the exact similarity (see below). All variants seemingly fire a single shot and do not take into account of the internal magazine. This is likely because of an old phrase "A good hunter does not need more than one shot to kill his prey" and is likely done as tradition. All variants are capable of mounting an array of optical scopes.
The .243 variant comes in two finishes, a classic wood or a carbon finish. The Carbon variant includes a stainless steel barrel and a synthetic carbon body and stock. It fires .243 caliber, Nosler brand 90 grain ballistic tip spitzer ammunition.
