PakRat is a tool for opening the resource archives used in the Quake series of games and viewing much of the artwork they contain. There's no need to decompress them first, PakRat opens the archives directly. If you do choose to 'explode' them, PakRat can open the individual resource files too. PakRat opens .pak and .pk3 archives directly and lets you view .mdl, .md2, .md3, .jpg, .tga, and .pcx files.
