Kill the King is an awesome mod for CoD4:Modern Warfare. It was first realeased in the early summer of 2012.
The name pretty much explains the gameplay. A king is randomly chosen at a beginning of a round, and a few assassins will try to kill him, by bypassing the guards protecting him, or killing them to make them come to their side and grow their team while reducing the king's protection.
This mod features new weapons and pretty neat killstreaks, along with other great new stuff we'll talk about in the Guide just below.
- KTK Guide -
Each map lasts for 10 rounds. At the beginning of each round, an assassin, a dog and a king are randomly picked. All other players are guards and have to protect the king.
As guard, if you get killed by assassins, you become an assassin as well and now have to try to kill the king.
The king has to survive the whole round to win.
*If you get killed by the king, you will spawn as guard in his team.
*Reviving a teammate who is in last stand gives you an extra life as guard (not stackable).
*As guard you begin with a pistol, but each time you kill an assassin you can press USE [default F] to upgrade your weapon.
*Assassins spawn with a random weapon among a variety of sniper rifles and close range weapons, except the first assassin who has a crossbow and explosive arrows.
*A terminator is randomly picked among the guards at a certain time of each round to protect the king.
*This mod includes new killstreaks. Last one is AC130, earned for 20 kills in a row.
*You cannot be in Last Stand twice in a row (you will die directly the second time).
*Prestige: Once you’ve reached level 55, and you have completely filled the XP bar of this level (“Golden” bar at the bottom of the screen), press B [or any key “quick chat” is assigned to for you], enter the player menu, and click “Enter prestige”. One prestige gives you one point.
*Unlockables section: You can use points you earn from prestiges to get perks, abilities and weapons. Press Esc and go to the “unlockables” section to see more.
*Never EVER run to your teammates with an explosive arrow stuck on you. That’s bad, bad, bad. Very bad. No, seriously, that’s bad. Actually it’s against the gameplay, you are supposed to protect the king, not to kill him or his guards.
3xP' server unique feature: when you have an explosive arrow stuck on you, hold F to defuse it (as King only).

- Making backups of your rank -
There are a lot of prestiges in Kill the King. It would be sad to earn a lot and lose them because of some stupid bug, erasing your PC data, changing PC, or things like that.
So I invite you to make backups of your profile data. This is a very easy thing to do.
To make so:
1) Go to your CoD4 installation folder in program files.
The path should be (it may change a bit depending on your OS):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare
2) Copy and paste the "players" folder, which will save all your ranks for all your mods and all profiles at once (paste it to a safe place, like a USB key, HDD, Cloud...).
3) If for any reason you lose your data/prestige, go to your saved "players" folder. Find the file named "mpdata" in the 3xP' Kill the King mod folder.
For me the path would be: "players\profiles\UFaced\mods\^13xp_^1k^3ill^1t^3he^1k^3ing" (obviously your name won't be UFaced though).
Copy that file, and paste it to the right place in your CoD4 folder in program files (For me the path would be: C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles\UFaced\mods\^13xp_^1k^3ill^1t^3he^1k^3ing).
Also remember you have to use always the same CD key. If you change key and join the server, it will say your stats have been reinitialized.
If you've read all of that stuff, it's now time for you to get back on our server
and have a great time!
