CoD4 Walkthrough Part 1: Training

This is a tutorial level, like all Call of Duty games start. Pick up the rifle and proceed to the firing range. Shoot the targets as directed. CoD now features bullet velocity so you can shoot through certain types of materials to hit the enemy taking cover behind. Go back to the armory and pick up your pistol. Knife the watermelon and head outside. If you’re ever lost, hit escape and a mini-map should give you an overhead view of the surrounding area. You’ll pass a fuel tanker on the right, and then go through the hangar doors to join your team. You’ll receive new orders from Captain Price. Climb the ladder to an observation post. While he gives you new orders, take a look at the area below. You’ll proceed from checkpoint 1 to checkpoint 4. It can get a little confusing while clearing the area so I’ll try to give as best a description as I can. Climb down the rope and shoot the 3 targets through the windows. Proceed around the wall and enter the structure, hugging the wall to climb down the ladder. Shoot the target that appears and head left. Throw a flashbang into the next room and shoot the two targets within. See Go left through the doorway and shoot the targets in front of you and to your right. Turn left, throw a flashbang into the next room and shoot both targets within. Without entering the room, exit the mock structure to the right sprinting, following the arrows on the floor to the finish line. I don’t think you get anything special for completing it at the best IW time, so its up to you if you want to try for it. When you’re done, approach the team by the monitors to receive your new briefing. You will now get to choose the difficulty you want to play the game at.

UPDATE – CoD4 1.2 Patch Released

Call of Duty 4 has been updated once again – another fast update for this very popular game.

The official forum thread is at the Infinity Ward forum, but you can click on this link to simply download the file.

Addressed in this update – left/vertical lean offset glitch, and files have been modified in order to prepare for future mods – good to see them thinking ahead already as many players are still whining about non-issues like sniper rifles and such. This patch also includes the 1.1 update which addressed issues that had users losing ranks, profiles and XP when switching from ranked to un-ranked or modded servers.
No apparent issues with the CoD4 1.2 patch yet – I’m keeping my ears to the ground.

CoD4 Multiplayer Configuration Tweaks

Here is my modified Call of Duty 4 multiplayer config (cfg), please note my screen resolution is 1440×900, and I’m using a Geforce 8600GT. Your results may vary, but I get a pretty consistent 90 frames per second (fps) most of the time using these tweaks.

Where Is the Underscore on a Moto Q?

I recently got a Motorola Q smart phone, and was puzzled for quite some time trying to find the underscore “_” character which some people use in email addresses.

Unfortunately, the answer is not very simple, but it does work, and also allows you access to a slew of other keys that are hard to find otherwise:

In order to insert an underscore “_” into any dialog, first press the “alt” key, the one you normally use to insert numbers. As soon as you have hit that key, hit the “shift” key, the one that allows you to enter capital letters. Once this is done, you’ll be presented with the character input screen. Funnily enough, the underscore, _ , is the first symbol listed, and you can simply tap right, then select it.


CoD4 1.1 Patch – mss32.dll not found

Many people are having issues with the new Call of Duty 4 patch reporting that they get the error “mss32.dll not found” – this is caused by the patch being improperly installed – or not being installed properly. When iw3mp.exe is run on its own, it tries to run Call of Duty 4 multiplayer, but without the dynamically loading libraries it needs (the DLL file). In order to remedy this situation, simply copy the iw3mp.exe file to your call of Duty 4 installation directory – typically found in C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare.

CoD4 Single Player Cheats

Here are some simple single player tips, tricks, and cheats for the Call of Duty 4 single player mode on PC.

Start up Call of Duty 4 single player, go into your options, and make sure that the console is enabled.

Press your ~ (tilde) key anytime you want to enter these codes in – you can keep entering them.
First off, type seta thereisacow "1337", this enables most of the cheats.

In order to pick a level, use spdevmap mapname

Here are some handy console commands that may help you through the game:

  • ufo – you can fly through walls to get places – be careful, this can mess things up a little, and you may get stuck
  • give – gives you an item. If you type give all, you will get all weapons
  • god – god mode!
  • demigod – god mode, but some things still happen like screen shaking and such
  • notarget – you will be invisible to enemies
  • give ammo – instant ammo
  • jump_height – allows you to change the physics in the game – like moon shoes
  • timescale – let’s you play with time – fast or slow
  • cg_LaserForceOn – laser sight, baby!

Call of Duty 4 Perk Descriptions/Guide

Here is complete guide to the perks found in Call of Duty 4, as well as some personal tactics gleaned from my first few days with the games, as well as from talking to others. The perks are a very satisfying addition to CoD in my opinion, and add another level to the game, making it very addictive as you try to collect all the perks that completely change the way you play the game. The levels needed per perk are listed after the perk name.
Perk 1:
Bomb Squad (14)
The Bomb Squad perk allows you to detect explosives planted in the map. This is useful if you are up against people who just love using bombs, and have C4 and Claymores hidden throughout the map. The Bomb Squad perk is unlocked at level 14 – Staff Sergeant I.

C4 Explosives x2 (2)
The C4 Explosives perk gives you two C4 explosives that you can detonate remotely using the fire button, or if you are using your primary weapon you can detonate them by double tapping the “use” button (the default mapping is F). In Call of Duty 4, there are no binoculars, so make sure you are aware of your enemy’s location before setting them off – I find this also a bit difficult, but on some level night vision comes in handy. C4 Explosives are unlocked as soon as you unlock the Demolitions Class – level 2, Private I.

Claymore x 2
Claymores are basically a mine that you can plant in the game to blow people up when they are in range. The calymore packs use light sensors, and typical will be visible before you stumble upon one. The explosion is very directional, and because of this the Claymore perk isn’t very useful in situations you would typically use mines. That said, I’ve had good luck hiding these things just around corners out of sight where people can’t see the garish red beams emanating from these things. Claymores are unlocked at the onset of the game.

RPG-7 x 2
The RPG-7 x2 perk gives you two ground-to-air missiles that are very useful for shooting down helicopter air strikes. It should also be noted that they can explode cars and other destrutible objects on the map, and are very fun to shoot at spawn points, followed by a cooked nade.

Special Grenades x 3
This is my favorite among the Perk 1 group – this one gives you 3 special grenades as opposed to just one. Why is it my fave? Well, combine this with stun grenades, the radar, and the “x” indication that you’ve hit someone, and it’s a great way to find out where people are, run up to them, and knife them with your hobo knife, even from far away! The Sepcial Grenades perk is unlocked by default.

Frag x 3 (41)
The Frag x3 perk gives you three frag grenades – simple huh? Not really, once this is unlocked, you’ll find the maps littered with grenades – try as you will to pick them up and throw them back, more are on the way! This perk is unlocked at level 41 – Colonel I.

Bandolier (32)
The Bandolier perk gives you much more amo for your clip, and is my second favorite among the Perk 1 set because it goes so well with the Double Tap perk. If you like to sprint around, doing some spray and pray while having a beer like me, this is definitely a must-try. The Bandolier perk is unlocked at level 32 – Captain I.
Perk 2:
The Juggernaut perk, well… makes you a juggernaut! You can take a LOT more damages than usual, and still be standing. Typically this means that I can survive 2 badly fought 1-on-1 rounds and still be running around like a chicken with my head cut off. This perk is unlocked straight away as far as I can tell.

Sleight of Hand (20)
Sleight of Hand helps you to reload weapons a lot faster, and if you can’t aim, like to spray and pray, and run around without reloading or watching your amo, this may be for you. Truth be told, this comes in very handy for shotgun and SAW users, but just about any one can use this. Sleight of Hand is unlocked at Master Sergeant I (Lv20).

Stopping Power
Stopping Power gives your weapon some oompf, and remoes the pew-pew! This is a good addition to weapons like the Mini Uzi, that while very fast, certainly lacks power. The Stopping Power perk is unlocked by default.

UAV Jammer (11)
The UAV Jammer perk helps to keep you off the radar, even when firing shots. This perk is useful against seasoned players who have become accustomed to watching the radar like hawks, and know all of the hiding places already. I highly recommend trying this with the Dead Silence perk and a knife. UAV Jammer is unlocked at level 11, Sergeant I.

Sonic Boom
The Sonic Boom perk gives your explosions some added range, and is great when used with the Martyrdom perk because it will see you taking out many people at a time as the grenade you drop will have a larger blast radius. This perk is unlocked out of the gates.

Overkill (38)
Easily the best perk in the game, Overkill allows you to carry two primary weapons at once, in the primary and secondary slots. This means you can fulfill your dreams of being a sniper/shotgunner! You simply change weapons to where your pistol would be, and there’s your other weapon.
