Switching to hidden weapons will give you a small performance boost.  If you're using nvidia hardware try enabling fast writes and sidebanding if your card/mobo supports it (check the three files in /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/).  In 2k3 I found enabling fast writes gave me a very noticable performance boost on maps with a lot of vertex data.
