When playing Online I have noticed that my weapon is usually only a mp-40, where can I choose what weapon to use. A player on my team had a Rail gun when he spawned, I don't get that chose. Playing IP to IP with a few friends is great but again no real choice of weapons. Could this be a console command or something in the setup of a server. Thanks for your help.:dance:
Slightly cooler than a n00b

You select your class and weapon in the limbo menu. Engineers and Medics are restricted to either the mp-40 or thomson depending on which team you're on. Lt's can choose either of those smg's or the sten, while a soldier can choose any weapon he likes. To select your weapon use the left and right arrows to scroll through the bar at the bottom right corner of your limbo menu after you choose your class. Click on your choice and click "close". The limbo menu appears when you first enter a game and each time you die while waiting to respawn. You can also bring it up at any point with the "L" key in game.
did you say Rail Gun?!?!?!?! coincidentally when i opened RTCW .exe with hex editor (curiosity) i found entries for all of the quake weapons... RTCW runs on the Quake engine right? anyway i think u mean venom gun right?

haha Oh man, railgun.......haha
Yes, if you chose to be a medic, or an engineer, you will be limited to an MP 40 for German, and Thompson for Allied. Soldiers have the most options, followed by Leuts who can choose several others. The sten is a good gun, just overheats but it more accurate so good killing power if you use it right.
If you download the boogie mod, you will also be able to choose the paratroop rifle and the snooper rifle. The snoop is great in single player, but boy is it hard on multiplayer with people jumping and running around!
