This mod by MCh2207Cz makes it so you can pick up and carry the MG42.
Name: Portable MG-42
Version: 1.0 (MCh2207Cz)
Game: Call Of Duty 2
Type: Unofficial SP and MP Modification
This little modification brings you the German dual purpose machine gun MG-42 as a pickable portable weapon. It is SP and MP friendly and it replaces the MP-44. Enjoy!
1) The MG-42 model is stock CoD2 model slightly modified to correct some skin mistakes. It goes with new skin (also apllied for static MG-42's) and new icons (HUD pickup icon, MP menu icon, fire mode icon) and realistic scope (MG-Z-34 3x)
2) I apologize for low-quality screenshots but I have slow connection and the bunch of files is over 2MB even with these pics...
3) Note that this modification is COMPATIBLE WITH my "MODIFIED P-38". Other modifications have not been tested.

I do not mind if you use my part of stuff my only request is to be mentioned in the credits.
A) Drag and drop installation
Put *.iwd file(s) into your "Call Of Duty 2Main" folder.
B) Mod folder installation
-Create a new folder in "Call of Duty 2" folder and name it for example "waltherp38".
-Extract the *.iwd mod file(s) into the new folder "waltherp38".
-Enter the "Call Of Duty 2Main" folder and copy the "Players" folder.
-Paste the "Players" folder into the new folder "waltherp38".
-Create a new start-up shortcut to your Call o Duty 2 single player on your desktop or whereever from you start the game.
-Rightclick the shortcut and go to "Properties".
-In the "Target" section you will see: "...Call of Duty 2CoD2SP_s.exe".
-Behind "CoD2SP_s.exe" you must paste this (including the spaces):
+set fs_game waltherp38
-Run the game through this new shortcut.
-WARNING TO SP USAGE: If you would continue an autosaved game from before you have not installed this modification it will not work. You have to start a new game or mission.
-It is the same but the shortcut will be for multi player game.
-So instead of "CoD2SP_s.exe" there will be "CoD2MP_s.exe" in the target.
You will have 2 shortcuts set up for modification: one for MP one for SP.
A) Drag and drop uninstallation
Delete *.iwd file(s) from your "Call Of Duty 2Main" folder.
