In this tutorial im going to show how to add custom skins to your weapons in CoD4.

First thing you need to do is to open C:\Program\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\main
Here you will see a bunch of files named "iw_00.iwd and localized_english_iw00.iwd"

MAKE A BACKUP JUST IN CASE!

What you want to do is rename the files
iw_00.iwd to localized_english_aa.iwd
iw_01.iwd to localized_english_aab.iwd
iw_02.iwd to localized_english_aac.iwd
iw_03.iwd to localized_english_aad.iwd
iw_04.iwd to localized_english_aae.iwd
iw_05.iwd to localized_english_aaf.iwd
iw_06.iwd to localized_english_aag.iwd

Your main folder should look like this now. (i know.. im using Windows XP. But i love it!)

Now you need to find a skin that you want to use. Go to gamebanana.com/cod4 (here is a skin that i have made: http://gamebanana.co...d4/skins/123529 http://gamebanana.com/members/1336527 http://gamebanana.co...d4/skins/123582 )
NOTE! THIS IS ONLY FOR COSMETIC LOOKS ONLY!! DO NOT ABUSE!

After you have found the skin you want to use you need to right klick in the main folder and create a new WinRAR Zip Archive and name it "localized_english_iw07.iwd"

Now, make a new folder inside the new iwd file you just made a name it "images"


We are almost done now. Last thing you have to do is to unrar the skin you downloaded and put it in the images folder.
So if you download a skin for your M40A3, you will have a file called "mtl_weapon_m40a3_col.iwi" and thats the one you want to put in the folder.

Now you just need to close everything down and open CoD4 as usual and you will have the skins :)
