How to enable console commands and bind them.
Go to C:/Program/Steam/SteamApps/common/call of duty black ops/players
Open config.cfg with a text editor (Notepad/Wordpad)
Press Ctrl+F this opens search window. Search word monkey
This will direct you to seta monkeytoy"0", replace the 0 with 1
Now you are ready to set your binds. Go all the way to the bottom of the file and press enter twice.
Make new line for each bind!

Examples:
If you press 5 you will say Max ammo! in the chat.
Type: bind 5 "say Max ammo!"
Note, you need the "" in the bind.

If you want to use noclip by pressing J type in:
bind J "noclip"

Note: Cheats (Noclipping, God mode, etc. do not work on online)

IMPORTANT: After you have done your binds and saved the file you must put your file on "read only" mode. To do that, right click on the file and open the properties.
Other useful tweaks and commands
How to get your FPS to show in zombies/singleplayer and see which player is host:
Open up the search and search FPS. You will find seta cg_drawFPS "0"
Replace 0 with 1.

How to add clan tag for zombies:
As with other binds make a new line and write: seta clanName "your clan name"

How to replenish ammo:
Bind key you want to use and add "give ammo"

How to add colors to text binds:
When you put ^ and color code infront of the text you can have text in different color.

Here are the color codes:
^1 RED
^2 GREEN
^3 YELLOW
^4 BLUE
^5 TEAL
^6 PINK
^7 WHITE
^8 GREY
^9 BROWN
^0 BLACK
^@ BROWN-ORANGE
^= LIGHTER BLUE
^; DARKER GREEN
^: DARKER RED
^> LIGHTER GREY
^< ORANGE
^? PURPLE
F.A.Q
Q: I can't find the config.cfg
A: If you have trouble finding the right folder just search Steam from your computer and it should find the steam folder for you directly. From there go to the SteamApps -> common -> call of duty black ops -> players

fov never changes. i have followed your instructions exactly and the fov thing doesn't work. in fact, none of these commands work within the cfg, none of the key bindings will take, the fov absolutely does not change and there is no in-game console either. and the file does retain my edits after restarting the game, regardless of whether it's set to read only or not.
so wtf do i do now?
