A SCAR-L in black to replace the default M16. This works online and with custom survivors that change arms models.

Preview (the bolt problem in the video/video's comments is fixed):

Installation requires Notepad++ (or similar).

-Place the loose files in their respective directories under your "...\left 4 dead\left4dead\" folder... models... materials... sounds... (just like CSS).
REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR OLD FILES!

-Editing pak01_dir.vpk...
.
.REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR pak01_dir.vpk! YOU CAN ALWAYS GET IT BACK BY VERIFYING GAME CACHE!
.
.THESE EXACT STRINGS... NO MORE, NO LESS CHARACTERS!!!
.
.Open pak01_dir.vpk in your "...\left 4 dead    \left4dead\" folder.
.  Find:     "v_rifle"
.  Replace:  "v_rifl3"
.  (replace all 5 instances)
.
.
.  Find:     "w_rifle_m16a2"
.  Replace:  "w_rifl3_m16a2"
.  (replace all 5 instances)

-The game should now load the custom model!

-Pray Valve patches L4D to no longer require this for non-map addons!

Updated for lower phong reflections

    Since this piece of awesomeness uses the same file names as your M4A1, I can have both of them in my AddOns and switch between them whenever I want without dumb .VPK editing every single time.

    Both rifles, the M4A1 and the SCAR-L, are plain awesome and I will definitely recommend them. They're exactly what I was looking for, since the default assault rifle is supposed to be a Colt M16A2, which doesn't shoot fully-automatic. That was always bothering me.

    Thank you very much.

    **Pros:**

    - Everything!

    **Cons:**

    - Installation instructions are simple, but perhaps sightly unspecific...

    **Improvements:**

    - Honestly, this is just about perfect :)

    For those having difficulty with installation, please do the following:

    paste the "**models**" folder into

    **C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\materials**

    Next, paste the "**v_models**" & "**w_models**" folders into

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\models

    Then, paste the **"gunfire"** folder into

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\sound\weapons\rifle

    Finally, right click **pak01_dir.vpk** located here:

    **C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead**

    and edit with Notepad++. Press **Ctrl + F** and replace

    **"v_rifle"** with **"v_rifl3"** as well as **"w_rifle_m16a2"** to **"w_rifl3_m16a2"**

    (In editing window, please click on '**Replace**' tab, enter what is replacing what in the appropriate fields, and then click the "**Replace All**" button). At this point, there should be no issues with the weapon whatsoever, assuming there is no conflict with other mod(s).

    - NOTES: Please ensure that your **pak01_dir.vpk** file is backed up prior to this installation. I would also recommend making a second backup of this file *FOLLOWING* successful installation.

    Additionally, please note that, in the directories I've posted, (x86) is included. For individuals with a 32-bit operating system, this will not appear, as all programs and applications will be x86 (x86 = 32-bit, x64 = 64-bit)

    Do you install this correctly? Arby did provide the installation instruction. If its not working for you then whether your L4D needs latest update or its messed up or you didn't install this correctly...
