Call of Duty 4 (CoD 4) is a first-person shooter game that uses IWD files to compress game data and hold program resources such as levels, animations, textures and in-game movies within a single file. There are many IWD files in a CoD 4 game installation, but each IWD is labelled uniquely. The CoD 4 IWD files are located on the software's original disc in a folder titled "Resources."
