share of some info for some basic questions that people may have about COD4
Will I be able to use vehicles in COD4
No, but you can however call in support from a wide range of vehicles.
How many players can play at the same time in online multiplayer?
console gamers only have from 1 to 16 online gamers at the same time.
Will there be kill cam in Multiplayer?
Yes, Kill-cam will be in multiplayer just like Call of Duty 2.
Can you throw grenades back in Multiplayer?
Yes, you can throw grenades back in Single and Multiplayer.
Can you cook grenades?
Yes, you can cook grenades in both single player and multiplayer.
They mentioned a new game mode called "Hardcore Mode", whats that?
IW has introduced a new realism mode for the hardcore players, which you can play along with any of the gametypes. So you can play all the gametypes either standard or Hardcore Mode. When playing Hardcore mode there is no HUD, and weapons do more damage (realistic damage).
Is there any co-op features in COD4
What game types are supported in CoD4
All the classic game types from COD2 returns; Death match, Capture the flag, Team death match, Search and Destroy, Headquarters, Free-for-All, Sabotage, Oldschool, Domination and the rest is yet to be confirmed.
Whats all this about unlock able equipment and experience points?
will use an experience based progression where you earn experience points (XP) for completing tasks and challenges. As you rank up you unlock new items, this is more than just new weapons. This includes Weapons, Perks, custom Camo schemes for your weapon and more.
IW speaks about a challenge system, how does that work?
Another twist to the typical shooter multiplayer is the addition of challenges. Essentially as you complete challenges, you'll get more experience points. While in a multiplayer game, you gain specific bonuses for completing any of the hundreds of challenges. When a challenge is achieved it unlocks things like the ability to call air strikes and such.
What classes does COD4
When you first start playing, you can choose from one of five pre-made classes; Assault, Sniper, Heavy, Special Ops and Demo. But as you gain experience, you'll be able to customize your own classes, swapping in different weapons or even special abilities called perks. There will also be the option to Create-a-Class which you can unlock through ranking up that allows you to customize your primary weapon, secondary weapon, grenade type, up to three perks, and accessories for your primary and secondary weapons (i.e. scopes, sights, camo schemes).
I heard a lot about "Perks" in multiplayer, whats that all about?
Perks are used to customize your character online to better fit your personal style of combat. The perks are broken up into three categories. This helps balance out the Perks a lot. You're limited to three perks total, so you have to choose wisely on what's going to fit your play style the best. There are a vast number of perks available, creating a unique MP experience every match with the large amount of difference combinations available.
Can Perks or other options be modified or disabled?
Yes, server admins and players will have a large amount of config options to disable / enable as they see fit on their servers. Perks can be disabled and plenty of gameplay options can be modified. Server Admins and players will have a healthy config file to assist them.
Another twist to the typical shooter multiplayer is the addition of challenges, which are broken up into many different categories based on the type of challenge they are. This could be likened to Xbox Live Achievements, except specific to Call of Duty 4, and with immediate rewards. But essentially as you complete challenges for doing amazing things in multiplayer (i.e. Blind fire: Get a kill while flashed), then you'll get more experience points. While in a multiplayer game, you gain specific bonuses for completing any of the hundreds of challenges. Kill three opponents without dying and you'll gain access to your radar. Earn a five kill streak and you can call in an air strike (with all carpet bomb kills added to your total). Keep up that spree and earn the right to call in a support chopper to lay suppressive fire on your opponents.

Classes and create-a-class
A class in CoD4
refers to your avatar's weapons load out (primary, sidearm and special/grenade), various weapon attachments, the camo pattern you'll wear and the 'perks' you come equipped with (more on those in a moment). Different weapons, attachments, camo patterns and other items can all be unlocked through online play.
When you first start playing, you can choose from one of five pre-made classes, such as Assault, Sniper, Special Ops, and Heavy. But as you gain experience, you'll be able to customize your own classes, swapping in different weapons or even special abilities called perks. Each character gets three perk slots:
the first allows you access to special items like C4 or a silencer;
the second has a selection of passive abilities like extra health or faster reloading; the third set seemed a little more specialized, like making less sound.
Infinity Ward is planning to have a great deal of perks, giving players a ton of options to play with. Additionally, the Kill Cam will return, giving you a look at the player who killed you with the added bonus of seeing what kind of perks they're using.
You can have several custom classes saved on hand at any given time. How to do this is to create a class per game type. So you may have a Capture the Flag class designed towards speed and getting out alive. Like e.g. the Flag Runner. IW talks about a nice light Submachine gun, with perks focused on getting you in and out with the flag quickly, opposed to putting down targets. You can also have one set up for Team Deathmatch, which is the exact opposite. The Submachine gun is gone and you are going in with an assault rifle with three perks focused on brute force and making a mark in a fire fight. You're limited to three perks total, so you have to choose wisely on what's going to fit your play style the best.
