"Could you just jump into that pit?"
- Wheatley

Bottomless pits are used as obstacles in Portal 2 and destroy objects and players that drop into them, just like grinders and deadly goo. They trigger a fade to black for players that fall into them.

Entities you need

trigger_hurt (using the block tool)

Making the deadly pit

Take your block tool and make a block, with the trigger texture, in the place where you want the player's death. After that press [Ctrl+T] and make it trigger_hurt. You can see many properties but we are only going to use the "damage", "damage cap" (only if you have chosen Doubling w/Forgiveness) and the "damage type" properties.

Final things you need to do

Change the properties
