CPointHurt defined in pointhurt.cpp
Point hurt.png

point_hurt is a point entity available in all Source Source games. It does damage to all entities in a radius around itself, with a specified delay. If 'Target Entity' is specified: the damage is only done to that entity, and radius is ignored. You will need to create a brush and then move that to an entity.

Note.pngNote:This entity can be parented, although by default it is missing the parent keyvalue from Valve's FGDs.
Note.pngNote:Victims of this entity will see it as the Inflictor and will see the !activator as the Attacker.


  •  [1] : Start Active
  •  [2] : Bypass ÜberCharge (only in Team Fortress 2) !FGD
       Allows the damage to bypass Medic's Tfwiki favicon.png ÜberCharge.



Name (targetname) <string>
The targetname that other entities refer to this entity by.
Target Entity (DamageTarget) <string>
If specified, only this DamageTarget will take damage. Otherwise, all entities within the Radius will take damage. Evaluated when used. !activator accepted.
Radius (DamageRadius) <float>
All entities within this radius of this entity will take damage. If a Target Entity is specified, only that entity will take damage.
Warning.pngWarning:Radius values ≤ 0 are changed to 128 automatically when this entity spawns.
Damage (Damage) <integer>
Damage done to all affected entities each time this entity fires.
Note.pngNote:The specified amount of damage will be halved. Consider multiplying your amount of damage by 2 and using it as the Value.
Note.pngNote:Counter-Strike: Global Offensive It is possible that unlike trigger_hurt, point_hurt does not halve the damage for the reason of the damage being the damage per second, as you can manually edit the amount of time between triggers. Damage type CRUSH should ignore armor, and GENERIC is known to halve when dealing with armored players.
Warning.pngWarning:Damage values ≤ 0 are changed to +2 automatically when this entity spawns.
A workaround might be to change it later using AddOutput. (in Team Fortress 2) But there are also games where negative Damage values of this entity result in no damage anyway. (in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive)
Delay (DamageDelay) <float>
Delay between refires, in seconds.
Warning.pngWarning:Delay values ≤ 0 are changed to 0.1 automatically when this entity spawns.

Tip.pngTip:Team Fortress 2 Team Fortress 2: Fancy damage effects such as decapitation, disintegration or ice/gold statues on death can be applied via VScript. See TakeDamageCustom function or the trigger example.

Enable this entity. It will start damaging entities everytime it fires, and refire based upon the specified Delay.
Disable this entity. It will stop damaging entities.
