They have the exact same values.--Gatelych83 (talk) 12:20, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Yes, it should be so. Most of the names in the FGD are remnants from the original Half-Life. All of the damage types in Half-Life 2 can be found in it's source code, and I think that's where this list is taken from. — Dr. Orange talk · contributions 16:59, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

TF2's Redefined Damage Types

TF2 reuses damage types and changed how they behave in-game. I'm adding this here for future reference:

Old New Notes
DMG_AIRBOAT DMG_USE_HITLOCATIONS Used for sniper rifles and the Ambassador.
DMG_RADIATION DMG_HALF_FALLOFF Bonus from damage ramp is scaled to 125% instead of 150%. Used by many explosive projectiles.
DMG_ENERGYBEAM DMG_RADIUS_MAX Unused. Intended for the cut flamecannon and napalm grenades.
DMG_PLASMA DMG_IGNITE, DMG_FROM_OTHER_SAPPER DMG_IGNITE is used by flareguns & flamethrowers, and does NOT ignite players on its own.
DMG_SLOWBURN DMG_USEDISTANCEMOD Applies a distance-based, sinusoidal modifier to damage ranging from 50% to 150%. Used by most ranged weapons.
DMG_POISON DMG_NOCLOSEDISTANCEMOD Modifies the damage ramp the same way DMG_HALF_FALLOFF does. Used by the syringe gun, grenade launcher, and energy weapons in conjunction with DMG_USEDISTANCEMOD or DMG_HALF_FALLOFF .
DMG_BLAST_SURFACE DMG_MELEE Unused. Melee weapons use DMG_CLUB/DMG_SLASH instead.
