I am playing COD 4 : modern warfare now for about a month, I still have the very basic weapons and I see many players with advanced and customized weapons ( I can pick them when they are dead and use them and they are way better than the ones I use ).

I want to know how to unlock/open/get such weapons ?

Weapons are unlocked by playing the game and ranking up. Attachments and other accessories are earned by challenges with said weapon.

When playing online, you'll gain XP after completing games. You'll also get XP for doing challenges, killing enemies, planting bombs etc...

Once you reach certain levels, you'll be able to customize your loadout with unlocked equipment.

I am now level 56 and have unlocked some weapons. how can I switch to play with these new weapons ? – Foad Rezek Apr 30 '14 at 20:21
In your loadouts. – Brok3n Apr 30 '14 at 22:22
I cannot find "loadouts" anywhere in the game. when I choose a class do I have to choose a custom class ? or one of the default classes? – Foad Rezek May 2 '14 at 11:59

Before entering the game there is "create class" button. There I can create my own custom class and use all the weapon I've unlocked. And then when logging to a server these newly created classes appear and can be used to play.

That's what I was looking for.
