Read what they do Here

You may be familiar with the quick swap, fast swap or glitch reload.
People switch weapon but cancel it by switching again. (dubble tap weapon switch button)

You can also bind a key to do this dubble tap with this command in console:

Arrow /bind key "weapnext; wait; wait; wait; weapnext"

Replace key with your choice of key recommended mouse button or z
E.g. /bind Mouse5 "weapnext; wait; wait; wait; weapnext"

This quick swap mostly used with Ak47 and 74-u allows you to cancel some animations (reload, pick up, switching weapon weapon)

Here is a tutorial i made:

For you lazy people i made a cfg which you can execute from console and these settings will be activated
Arrow Place cfg file in cod folder\main\
Arrow Start cod4
Arrow Open console and write /exec tips

Here is the file:

Weapons & Perks :
Statistically the best weapons of CoD4 would be the AK-47 with no attachment and Ak74-u with no attachment.

Accuracy: 6 / 12
Damage: 9 / 12
Range: 9 / 12
Fire Rate: 6 / 12
Mobility: 8 / 12
Clip Size/Reserve Ammo: 30/60
Recoil: low/moderate cluster
Reload Time: 2.5 seconds / 3.25 empty
Damage: 30-40 / 20-40 SD
Range: 1500-2000 / 500-1000 SD
Rate of Fire: 700 RPM
Penetration: Medium / Large Bullet
Location Damage Multiplier: Head (1.4) / Neck: (1.0) / Torso: (1.0) / Stomach: (1.0) / Limbs (1.0)
Hip Accuracy: Stand (3-7) / Crouch (2.5-6) / Prone (2-5)

Do not use an attachment for this weapon! It decreases the damage (30) (HC hp = 30) to 20 giving in HC no 1 shot kill.

Recommended perks
Arrow 1:st whatever you like
Arrow 2:nd Stopping Power
Arrow 3: Dead silence/deep impact

Damage:20-40 (higher damage at short to medium range, little less damage at long)
Damage Multipliers:Head:1.4, Chest:1 Limbs:1
Magazine Size:30
Ammo Amount: 60 (without Bandolier). 180 (with Bandolier)
Range:750-1000m (350-700 When equipped with a Silencer)
Penetration:Medium (high with Deep Impact)

Do not use attachment with this weapon it decreases hip-fire accuracy (not down-aimed sight) to the level of an assault rifle.

This weapon is like the MP5, because they both have the same range, damage and rate of fire. Except the MP5 has lower recoil (but circular) and penetration.

Recommended perks
Arrow 1:st whatever you like
Arrow 2:nd Stopping Power
Arrow 3: Dead silence/Deep impact


In HC i recommend using the m40A1 over the Remington700. M40A1 has lower recoil, bigger clip size but lower damage. However the lack of damage isn't that significant in Hardcore since you don't have that much HP.

Recommended perks
Arrow 1:st Bandoleer, clays
Arrow 2:nd Stopping Power, Sleight of Hand, UAV jammer
Arrow 3:rd Dead silence, Deep impact

As a secondary weapon I suggest 2 guns.

Powerful gun, relatively hard to aim with

If you do not like the deagle this is your other choice. It does the same damage as the other guns but has a bigger clip size.


UAV-jammer Have 1 class with UAV-jammer when playing S&D

The thing is that you can switch class even some time in the round if you haven't used any ammo/nades. As the most less experienced players activates the UAV at the beginning of the round you can counter it by switching to a stealth class. Leaving you invisible at their radars.

Hopefully you know that sound is very important in cod4. If used correctly you can spot enemies without seeing them.
Dead silence makes it less likely that enemies hear you but as the perk says: you make less noise, not silent, therefor it is possible to hear dead silence depending on headset, sound card and settings.
Don't be surprised if someone hear you even though you have Dead Silence.

Note that there are many sounds that make sounds that makes it easier for you to spot enemies and vise versa. When you pickup a weapon, when you switch weapon (first swap to secondary is silent) jumps and landings. Be alert for these sounds.

Claymores can be a useful perk but note that it is also considered as a bit nooby. However a tip is to use knife when you planted the claymore to cancel the end of the animation.
