Cannot find weapon models.

A Forum Thread for Left 4 Dead 2

I am trying to create my own skin for Left 4 dead 2 and cannot find the original gun models. Does anyone know where they save to or how I can get them? Thanks.

    As with most of Source engine games you'll find a tidy filesystem where the view models are located in 
    left4dead2\models\v_models
    and the world models in the w_models in models\w_models

    Materials and textures are located likewise in left4dead2\materials\models\v_models
    respectively.
    Mind you, due to the configuration of Left 4 Dead 2 and left 4 dead 1 thats different from other source games, you cannot simply load your mod traditionally as you might Half Life 2; you must pack it into a .vpk file and place it in the addons folder of left4dead2

    After you have installed "Left 4 Dead 2 Authoring Tools" on steam tools , go to : ...Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\sdk_content
    you will find Starter_Kits.zip and Maya_Rigs_Animation.zip.
