http://lanclan.com/codmod/ss.htm Alright, so Call of Duty has been out for two years now, and the mod scene isn't too great. There aren't many mods, but the ones that are out there are pretty good. Lemme list them in the order they've come out:

Heat of Battle

Heat of Battle (or HoB) was created becasue it's creators wanted to slow down Call of Duty's fast paced game play. It adds a few new weapons, like the Gewer, and the SVT40 to regular CoD. And it uses Call of Duty's domination mode of gameplay (and only domination). In addition the weapons are considerably more powerful, and it takes fewer bullets to kill a person. Check out the screens here: http://heatofbattle.net/media.asp?p= And the Heat of Battle Homepage here: http://heatofbattle.net/default.asp Download the current version here: http://files.filefront.com/Heat_of_Battle_v040_Mod/;3677110;;/fileinfo.html And the curent map pack here: http://www.fileplanet.com/148141/140000/fileinfo/Heat-of-Battle-Community-Map-Pack-v2.0 The only real problem with HoB is that there aren't many people playing it. You usualy can only find people playing on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. It should also be noted that Heat of Battle is being ported to the source engine. Revolt Revolt is pretty much your standard modern shooter, set in an Iraq-like environment. It puts the terrorists vs. coalition forces. It uses many modern weapons like the M16, and M4 Look at the screens here: http://lanclan.com/codmod/ss.htm The homepage here: http://lanclan.com/codmod/ Download the current full install: http://files.filefront.com/Revolt_015_Mod/;3574477;;/fileinfo.html The lastest pacth here (it's the only site that I can find that will distibute it): http://www.biks-clan.de/include.php?path=content/download.php&contentid=9&PHPKITSID=a2447d29bdd7819d6d9e908066cbece2 The only problem with revolt is that the weapon charectoristics aren't very realistic. The weapons recoil like the players hands and arms are made of gel. SWAT The SWAT mod is recently released. It adds many new features, not yet seen in CoD. Like, night vision, a flashlight, and the ability to sprint. It features a terrorist vs. counter terrorist approch. And some original modes of gameplay. Couldn't find a site with screens Download it here (v2 full install): http://callofduty.filefront.com/file/SWAT_Mod;38913 v3 patch: http://callofduty.filefront.com/file/SWAT_Mod_Beta_V03_Patch;39196 v4 patch: http://callofduty.filefront.com/file/SWAT_Mod_Beta_V04_Patch;39544 The problem with the SWAT mod, is that it's weapons are SO well balenced. For example, the SWAT M4 is nearly identiacal to the terrorist AK47, almost every weapon has a duplicate on the other side. German Front Mod Or GfM as it's commonly known, was released a week ago. It features much of the same style of gameplay that Heat of Battle offers, but it adds many more weapons, and because it requires United Offensive, it has vehciles. Here's the homepage: http://germanfrontmod.justgamers.de/index.php?sektion=2 Download it here: http://files.filefront.com/GermanFrontModMP_09/;3844108;;/fileinfo.html GfM is a very young mod, and because of this it has many bugs that have to be worked out. We're waiting for the first patch, and the patch will also add more content that couldn't be included in the first release. So, what do you think, which is your favorite?

Hey Whitlow, I agree that HoB deserves props, it's a great mod, and a lot of fun to play. As for GfM, it's too young to say weather it's gonna stay around for awhile. I now right now there's a lot of people playing it, but we'll have to see weather there will be anyone plaing it in a few months. Not to say that I'm bagging on it, it is a great deal of fun to play, and I highly recomend it to everyone to try it out.
