The following works on the mission entitled "Hunted". After fighting your way through a basement (after going underneath a bridge, across a field, et cetera), you'll reemerge outside. A nearby house next to a vending machine and a car should be your target from here. Inside the house, there's a laptop on the table. This is a piece of Intel, and collecting all thirty of them in the game will unlock all of the Cheat options available.
If you collect the Laptop, and then head through the nearby checkpoint, it will be permanently acquired on your save file. Kill yourself at this point (a Grenade is an easy way to do so), and backtrack to the house. Collect the Laptop again, go to the checkpoint, kill yourself, and repeat the process. By doing this, you can collect thirty laptops without actually collecting all thirty of them.
To unlock Prestige Mode, which is a multiplayer-only mode, you must reach experience level fifty-five. Instead of capping out at level fifty-five, which is the highest level, Prestige Mode allows you to start again from level one. This can be done a total of ten times, giving you ten different icons in in-game lobbies to show your extreme achievement.
Unlockable: Arcade Mode:
To unlock Arcade Mode, beat the game once through on any difficulty level. Arcade Mode itself is split into two options - Full Challenge or Level Challenge - that add extra replayability to the game.
Unlockable: New Mission:
To play an all-new mission, which is an extra mission after the main quest is completed, beat the game and view the ending credits thereafter. After they've run their course, you will then be given the opportunity to play one last single player mission before all is said and done.
Successfully complete the game. A "Cheat" option will now appear during game play at the "Options" menu.
Collect the Intel Pieces (enemy laptop computers) hidden throughout the

Sit and look through all the credits at the end of the game, and you'll
unlock one more mission.
Mile High Club mission:
Complete Story mode under any difficulty.
Simply ranking up is enough to unlock the ordinary perks, but weapon
modifications like laser sights, grenade launcher attachments and silencers
are unlocked with specific challenges. Luckily these are pretty
straightforward: want a sight for your M16? Get 50 kills with your M16.
And better still, unlocking these gives you a bucket-load of XP towards
your next promotion.
Crew Expendable: Desert Eagle:
In the second large containment room, run ahead of your team. There are
two enemies with Desert Eagles who will try to surprise you around two
corners, depending on the path you take.
Game Over: SSgt. Griggs's "Success!" comment:
Killing all three RPG enemies in the pursuing trucks in Game Over
results in SSgt. Griggs saying "Success!"
When you kill another player with a headshot, a metal "ping" sound
will play to confirm it.
To level up quicker than usual, try to use the same gun until all the marksman
and elite challenges are completed. They provide huge boosts and will quickly
level you up to get new guns. However, do not use those guns yet. Just keep
on the challenge until it has completed. The third phase of the challenge
usually ends with 1,000 experience points and that will bump you up a rank
almost in itself. Also, do not forget about the strange challenges like
jumping 15 feet and surviving or falling 30 feet to your death. To get that
one if not previously unlocked play the "Countdown" map and jump into one of
the open missile silos. You will get instant experience points for simply dying. Also, remember to go prone and crouch to get those challenges as well.
Once you get the Red Dot Scope addon to your weapons, use it over the ACOG scope. The red dot will not enhance or take away anything and provides a better aimpoint on most weapons. The ACOG scope will actually add more range to your weapon, but take away accuracy which accomplishes almost nothing; especially so for snipers because it takes away range and adds nothing.
If a target is moving make sure to lead it. If you are not making shots try to
lead your target more. Also, if you are a skilled sniper try using the M40A3 over the M21. It has a slower reload time and rate of fire, but it has enough damage to kill a target in one shot instead of two or three. It also allows you to be less noticeable with less rounds being fired; so someone else cannot follow the tracer shot back to you. A good setup for the sniper is the Claymore perk, to alert you when an enemy is trying to close in on your rear, and either the Sleight Of Hand or Stopping Power, then Iron Lungs to give you more time to
line up your shots.
Use one of the following entries with the map or spdevmap codes.
coup (intermission sequence)
aftermath (intermission sequence)
To play an all-new mission, which is an extra mission after the main quest is
completed, beat the game and view the ending credits thereafter. After they've
run their course, you will then be given the opportunity to play one last single player mission before all is said and done.
Complete the indicated task to unlock the golden weapon camouflage.
Golden Ak-47 - Complete all Assault Rifle challenges
Golden Desert Eagle - Reach level 55
Golden Dragonuv - Complete all Sniper challenges
Golden M1014 - Complete all Shotgun challenges
Golden M60 - Complete all LMG challenges
Golden Mini-Uzi - Complete all SMG challenges
To level up, gain points, and to complete challenges easily, find a TDM game of
the map "Shipment", preferably with a lot of people. Make sure you have the
Steady Aim/Martyrdom/Stopping Power perks on and choose a gun you want to level
up. Shipment is a very small close shoulder-to-shoulder map. Just run around
holding down the trigger, taking down as many people as possible. This is very fast paced and you should tick points very quickly.
Death From Above: Easy points:
In Arcade mode you can score easy points by shooting the building with the 105mm or the 40mm. When the building is destroyed you will get 1,000 points.
One Shot, One Kill: Canine help:
When you are on the mission where you have to carry your captain (when you are in the Ghillie Suits),you will find abandoned swimming pool with some rabid dogs at the bottom. Do not kill them. Just run around the edge and do not fall in. When you drop your captain off behind the Ferris wheel and both of you get into position, there will be a patrol after you. When your captain tells you to open fire with your sniper rifle, shoot anyone on the left side, closest to the building with the pool in it. Everyone will hit the deck after one of their teammates dies. The dogs will sense danger, jump out of the window, and start attacking the soldiers. This is helpful as at least four or five of the soldiers die. This also saves ammunition.
Dog attack in All Ghillied Up mission:
In the 'All Ghillied Up' mission, you will come across a wild dog eating a dead
soldier's remains. You will be told to leave it alone, but if you want a very
difficult challenge in the game, shoot it. You will be attacked by a large pack
of angry dogs.
Extra ammunition for R700 sniper in Multiplayer mode:
At level 38 in Multiplayer mode, you get the Overkill Perk Class 2 (located in the Perk 2 or Red Perks). This allows you to carry two primary weapons rather than a pistol. Some of the guns in online play can share ammunition. If you are a skilled sniper and prefer the bolt action to a semi-auto sniper, you can share ammo between the R700 (unlocked at level 34) and the G3 assault rifle (unlocked at level 25). Instead of having 40 rounds, you will have 152 rounds for the sniper, effectively giving you an endless supply of ammo for the R700. If you are a G3 user, you will gain an extra 40 rounds (two clips). This works both ways; since you share ammunition, you might not want to use too much ammo with the G3. Also, there are more combinations than just this one; experiment with different guns to see which ones can share ammo. When you reach level 46, you will get the M14 Assault Rifle. In the class that you want to have the extra ammunition, you will need the M14 Assault Rifle and M21 Sniper Rifle as weapons. To use those two weapons, you must have Overkill (obtained at level
38) and your second Perk on Overkill. For the other two Perks, you can have whatever desired.
Good sniping location in Crossfire map in Multiplayer mode:
This spot can only be reached when you are playing the old school free-for-all section. Go to the building at the very end of the map on the opposite side of the bus. You can get to the very top of the building that is around the corner. First, get to the second story where the chair is found. Get on the top of the chair facing the wall, and jump. You may have to run and jump, but eventually you will catch an edge. You can then work your way up to a great sniping position.
Dog attack in All Ghillied Up mission:
In the "All Ghillied Up" mission, you will come across a wild dog eating a dead soldier's remains. You will be told to leave it alone, but if you want a very difficult challenge in the game, shoot it. You will be attacked by a large pack of angry dogs.
How to Rank Up Quicker:
The memory address that contains the CoD4 XP has been located, and you can now modify it, making leveling up a much faster and easier process. This means that you can easily get the Commander Rank within a few hours of buying the game, and you can unlock all perks and weapons. The memory address needed is: CBF0E68 (Now believed to have been changed to CB1FE80)
You can use a tool such as Tsearch to edit the value of that address (your XP), so that you'll only need one XP to get to the new CoD 4 rank.
Here's how: open Tsearch, start a new script, enter the memory address, then enter in the XP you would like. Keep in mind - you'll want to back up your Call of Duty 4 profile just in case something goes wrong - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
More details: if you just want to quickly go up a level, take your current XP from the Rank screen in the multiplayer mode, then add the amount of XP you will need to go up a level. You'll want to subtract one or two XP in order to make it easy to gain a level. Then, go online and kill someone, or get an assist - BAM! - instant level up, and possibly a new rank.
Overkill perk, here you come! Seriously, though, I tested this method, and found it much more enjoyable to play through multiplayer the real way.
Helecopters easy takedown:
If you are playing with some really good people and they get helecopters alot then bring out your nuke toob (grenade launcher) and shoot the helecopter with it. It's very effective on the helecopters.
Unlock All Intel Automatically:
You can unlock all of the intel laptops automatically on the PC version of CoD4, but since you'll need to mess with your game's files a little bit, you're doing so at your own risk. Simply go to your player profile (it will look something like this:
C:\program files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles\player\
YOURPROFILENAMEHERE), and search for a file called config.cfg. Open the file by double-clicking it (or right-click it and open it in Notepad) and search for "cheat_points", minus the quotes, via the CTRL+F function. There will be a number next to cheat_points -- change it to "30" and all intel laptops will be automatically unlocked!
Crossfire: Sniping location:
The online Crossfire map has a very good sniping location. The spot can only be reached when you are playing the old school free 4 all section. The building at the very end of the map on the opposite side of the bus. You can get to the very top of the building that is around the corner. First, get to the second story where the chair is found. Get on the top of the chair facing the wall and jump. You may have to run and jump, but eventually you will catch an edge. You can then work your way up to the perfect sniping position.
Mile High Club: Airplane reference:
In the "Mile High Club" level, during the opening sequence when a hole is being cut to drop into the plane, somebody says, "Surely you can't be serious". Captain Price then says, "I'm serious, and don't call me Shirley". This is a line from the movie Airplane.
Multi-player: Extra ammunition:
At level 38 in Multi-player mode, you get the Overkill perk (located in the Perk 2 or red perks). This allows you to carry two primary weapons rather than a pistol. Some of the guns in online play can share ammunition. If you are a skilled sniper and prefer the bolt action to a semi-auto sniper, you can share ammo between the R700 (unlocked at level 34) and the G3 assault rifle (unlocked at level 25). Instead of having 40 rounds you will have 152 rounds for the sniper, effectively giving you an endless supply of ammo for the R700. If
you are a G3 user, you will gain an extra 40 rounds (two clips). This works both ways. Because you share ammunition, you might not want to get too trigger happy with the G3. Also, there are more than just this combination. Experiment with different guns to see which can share ammo.
When you reach level 46 you will get the M14 assault rifle and you will have the M21 sniper. In the class that you want to have the extra ammo you will need have the M21 and M14 as a weapon. To have those two weapons you must have Overkill (obtained at level 38). You also must have your second perk on Overkill. For the other two perks you can have whatever desired.
Create an MP5 class. For your side arm, choose the M9. Because the MP5 and M9 share ammo you will have 90 rounds of ammo instead of 60. This is a good trick if you prestiged and have lost your Bandolier perk. When you reach level 32, enable Bandolier in this class and you will get 270 rounds of ammo instead of 180.
Use the following trick if you are playing online or in Carrier mode. When your gun runs out of ammo you usually have to re-load, then cock your weapon. Note: This does not include RPGs, and rifle mounted grenade launchers. This trick makes it so you do not have to cock your gun after re-loading. When you run out of ammo, let your character reload, then quickly sprint forwards a short distance. Stop sprinting and return your gun to the firing position. It will be ready to fire without re-cocking.
Pros: Blinds target, deafens and slows.
Cons: Must be looking at grenade or in its direction to have any effect.
Pros: Deafens, slows and does a little damage to target even if detonated behind. Cons: Target can still see where he or she is shooting.
Pros: Can temporarily provide cover for getaways, relocation and traps (for example, throw a smoke grenade into a room and plant a claymore in the doorway, then throw a grenade inside to flush him out).

Simply ranking up is enough to unlock the ordinary perks, but weapon modifications like laser sights, grenade launcher attachments and silencers are unlocked with specific challenges. Luckily these are pretty straightforward: want a sight for your M16? Get 50 kills with your M16. And better still, unlocking these gives you a bucket-load of XP towards your next promotion.
F.N.G.: Obstacle course:
When Gaz tells you to go to Captain Price, walk out of the building and move towards the fence. Follow the fence. On the left are three men in a crouch. Walk past them to find an obstacle course. You can run it for fun.
Backlot: Sniping locations:
On the Marines side of "Flag B" is sheet metal guarding the top of a building. Climb the ladder to get to the top. To stand on the sheet metal itself, climb onto a ledge and slowly go back and forth until you see the "Climb" option. Make your way to the ledge besides the building overlooking the tiny enclosure. You will see a white radiator. Jump into it. There are little knobs sticking out of the buildings that look like this.
Radiator>[l] l l l l code. Once in the map, enable the following codes:
Zoom in with your scope, press [Shift] to steady, then release [Shift].
The scope will stay perfectly still.
Multi-player: Easy kill streak:
To get a seven kill streak, do not call in your helicopter immediately. Instead, go out on a suicide mission and die. When you respawn, find a good hiding location and call in your helicopter. Then, every kill your helicopter gets will add on to a kill streak. For example, if your helicopter gets three kills you will get a UAV, 5 kills airstrike, 7 kills, another helicopter. If you die at any time during this, then your helicopter will not count towards
a kill streak any more; it is important that you hide.
Vendetta - No scope reference:
In the first Russian mission, at the part where you must protect your friends below on the streets with the sniper, after the first part you must move to another position with some Nazis with dogs . If you manage to kill a Nazi or dog without using the scope on the sniper (no-scope), Dimitri will say "No Scope!!? Good!!" in a very enthusiastic voice.
All Ghillied Up: Dog attack:
During the "All Ghillied Up" mission, you will come across a wild dog eating a dead soldier's remains. You will be told to leave it alone, but if you want probably the most difficult challenge in the game, shoot it. You will be attacked by a large pack of angry dogs. In the mission when you play Cpt. Price, you will encounter a wild dog eating a man. You are told to leave it alone, but if you kill it you will hear dogs growling. You are then attacked by a large pack of them. This is the best way to practice your dog killing skills, but be warned. You must save your comrade, because if he dies you must start over again.
Death From Above: Easy points:
In Arcade mode you can score easy points by shooting the building with the 105mm or the 40mm. When the building is destroyed you will get 1,000 points.
One Shot, One Kill: Extra claymores:
Reach the last part of the mission, where you have to put Captain MacMillan down by the Ferris wheel and wait for the helicopter. You can get an extra full round of claymores by using the following trick. Before putting MacMillan in the grass where he tells you to, put him down anywhere else so he will not call in the helicopter yet. Go around planting the claymores you already have. You can now pick up MacMillan again and place him in the area he wants to be
placed at. He will tell you to plant some claymores, and give you a fresh batch. You now have a full inventory of claymores again. Plant them as desired. Note: Do not plant them where the enemies will be coming from (behind the buildings). As soon as one explodes, they will all start crawling around and it will be harder to kill them. Try to plant them near cars where enemies hide behind. This will destroy the car and kill two or more enemies if you are lucky.
Playing games such as Sabotage and Ground War will
