Main article: Peace Walker Incident

During the Peace Walker Incident in 1974, Big Boss and his Militaires Sans Frontières mercenary group managed to procure design specs for the M700 after an intelligence gathering mission at the Mine Base. The MSF R&D team later managed to modify it by making it into a bull barrel type. They later managed to procure design specs for a variant that utilized "LIFE Recovery Rounds" as ammo after defending areas within Aldea de los Despiertos. The Ghillie variety of scouts within the Peace Sentinel also utilized the M700.

Behind the scenes

"An extensively modified version of the original M700 bolt-action hunting rifle, reborn as a military sniper rifle.
It is sturdy and dependable thanks to its simple construction, and while limited to single shot fire, few weapons can match it in terms of accuracy.
The M700 has a 3-level zoom scope and fires armor-piercing rounds; as such, it is geared more or less completely towards long-range precision sniping.
An outstanding weapon for sniper duels or for teammate support in CO-OPS.
(Ranks 4-5) This model has been fitted with a heavier bull barrel that reduces muzzle jump.
