A tf_weapon_wrench variant that is used for the Gunslinger.

Keyvalues


Base:
Name (targetname) <string>
The name that other entities use to refer to this entity.
Parent (parentname) <targetname>
Maintain the same initial offset to this entity. An attachment point can also be used if separated by a comma at the end. (parentname [targetname],[attachment])
Tip.png Tip: Entities transition to the next map with their parents
Tip.png Tip: phys_constraintcan be used as a workaround if parenting fails.
Origin (X Y Z) (origin) <coordinates>
The position of this entity's center in the world. Rotating entities typically rotate around their origin.
Note.png Note: Hammer does not move the entities accordingly only in the editor.
Pitch Yaw Roll (X Y Z) (angles) <angle>
This entity's orientation in the world. Pitch is rotation around the Y axis, yaw is the rotation around the Z axis, roll is the rotation around the X axis.
Note.png Note: This works on brush entities, although Hammer doesn't show the new angles.
Classname (classname) <string> !FGD
Determines the characteristics of the entity before it spawns.
Tip.png Tip: Changing this on runtime still has use, like making matching an entry in S_PreserveEnts will persist the entity on new rounds!
Flags (spawnflags) <integer> !FGD
Toggles exclusive features of an entity, its specific number is determined by the combination of flags added.
Effects (effects) <integer> !FGD
Combination of effect flags to use.
Entity Scripts (vscripts) <scriptlist> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2)
Space delimited list of VScript files (without file extension) that are executed after all entities have spawned. The scripts are all executed in the same script scope, later ones overwriting any identical variables and functions.
Thinker function (thinkfunction) <string> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2)
Name of the function within this entity's script that'll be called automatically every 100 milliseconds, or a user-defined interval if the function returns a number. Avoid expensive operations in this function, as it may cause performance problems.
Lag Compensation (LagCompensate) <boolean> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2) !FGD
Set to Yes to lag compensate this entity. Should be used very sparingly!
Is Automatic-Aim Target (is_autoaim_target) <boolean> (in all games since Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) !FGD
If set to 1, this entity will slow down aiming movement for consoles and joystick controllers when the entity is under the crosshairs.

BaseAnimating:
World Model (model) <string>
The model this entity should appear as. 128-character limit.
Skin (skin or ModelSkin Alien Swarm) <integer>
Some models have multiple skins. This value selects from the index, starting with 0.
Collisions (solid) <choices>
Method of collision for this entity.
 
  • 0: None
  • 1: BSP (QPhysics) !FGD
    Bug.png Bug: In Portal 2 Portal 2, if an entity using QPhysics collisions is hit by Gel, the game will crash!
  • 2: Bounding Box
  • 3: Oriented Bounding Box (Use for runtime spawned rotated brush entities) !FGD
  • 4: Oriented Bounding Box, constrained to Yaw only !FGD
  • 5: Custom/Test (Usually no collision with anything) !FGD
  • 6: VPhysics
Hitbox Set (hitboxset) <string> !FGD
Sets the $hboxset to use.
Body Group (body or SetBodyGroup) <integer> !FGD
Sets the the active $bodygroup.
Model Index (modelindex) <short> !FGD
Given the number index from dumping the cl_precacheinfo modelprecache table, sets entity model to the index.
Warning.png Warning: If an entity has animations that will be played, then the set model also must have its own sequences, else the game crashes.
Model Scale (modelscale) <float> (in all games since Half-Life 2: Episode Two) (not in Portal Left 4 Dead series Source 2013) !FGD
A multiplier for the size of the model. Negative values are accepted. Does not alter the physics collisions in most cases, however.
Warning.png Warning: Negative or extremely high values can cause crashes!

Animating

Sequence (sequence) <integer> !FGD
Default animation sequence for the model to be playing after spawning.
Playback Rate (playbackrate) <float> !FGD
A multiplier of the framerate at which animations are played, negative values are accepted. Default is 1.0.
Cycle (cycle) <float> !FGD
The current frame of the current animation, on a range from 0-1.
Texture Frame (texframeindex) <integer> !FGD
The initial frame number for all animated textures on this entity.

Effects - Render

Start Fade Distance (fademindist) <float>
Distance at which the entity starts fading. If 0 or less, the entity will disappear instantly when end fade is hit. The value will scale appropriately if the entity is in a 3D Skybox.
End Fade Distance (fademaxdist) <float>
Distance at which the entity ends fading. If 0 or less, the entity won't disappear at all. The value will scale appropriately if the entity is in a 3D Skybox.
Fade Scale (fadescale) <float>
If specified in the worldspawn, or if the engine is running below DirectX 8, entities will fade out even if the fade distances above aren't specified. This value gives more control over when this happens: numbers smaller than 1 cause the entity to fade out at further distances, and greater than 1 cause it to fade out at closer distances. Using 0 turns off the forced fade altogether. See also $noforcedfade.
FX Amount/Transparency (0–255) (renderamt) <integer>
Transparency amount, requires a Render Mode other than Normal. 0 is invisible, 255 is fully visible.
Render Color (R G B) (rendercolor) <color255>
Color tint.

Inputs


Base:
AddContext <string>
Adds to the entity's list of response contexts. Format is <key>:<value>.
AddOutput <string>
Assigns a new keyvalue/output on this entity. For keyvalues, some rely on extra necessary code to be ran and won't work if its simply just changed through this input. There is a strict format that must be followed:
Syntax: 
// Format of changing KeyValues: "AddOutput [key] [value]"
//// Raw text:
"OnUser1" "!self,AddOutput,targetname new_name"

// Format of adding an Output: "AddOutput {targetname}:{inputname}:{parameter}:{delay}:{max times to fire, -1 means infinite}"
//// Raw text:
"OnUser1" "!self:SetParent:!activator:0.0:-1"
// Arguments can be left blank, but the empty blank should still be contained.
//// Raw text:
"OnUser1" "!self:ClearParent::0.0:-1"
ClearContext
Removes all contexts from this entity's list.
ClearParent
Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.
FireUser1 to FireUser4
Fires the respectiveOnUseroutputs; see User Inputs and Outputs.
Kill
Removes this entity and any entities parented to it from the world.
KillHierarchy
Functions the same as Kill, although this entity and any entities parented to it are killed on the same frame, being marginally faster thanKillinput.
RemoveContext <string>
Remove a context from this entity's list. The name should match the key of an existing context.
SetParent <string>
Move with this entity. See Entity Hierarchy (parenting).
SetParentAttachment <string>
Change this entity to attach to a specific attachment point on its parent. The entity will teleport so that the position of its root bone matches that of the attachment. Entities must be parented before being sent this input.
SetParentAttachmentMaintainOffset <string>
As above, but without teleporting. The entity retains its position relative to the attachment at the time of the input being received.
Use  !FGD
Same as a player invoking +use; no effect in most cases.
DispatchResponse <string> !FGD
Dispatches a response to the entity. See Response and Concept.
DispatchEffect <string> (removed since Left 4 Dead) !FGD
Dispatches a special effect from the entity's origin; see also List of Client Effects. Replaced by the particle system since Left 4 Dead.
RunScriptFile <script> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a VScript file from disk, without file extension. The script contents are merged with the script scope of the receiving entity.
RunScriptCode <string> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a string of VScript source code in the scope of the entity receiving the input. String quotation may be needed when fired via console.
Bug.png Bug: In Hammer, using string arguments will corrupt the VMF file's structure, making the file unviewable for the next Hammer session.
Fix: Remove the string argument manually with a text editor.
CallScriptFunction <string> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2) !FGD
Calls a VScript function defined in the scope of the receiving entity.
SetLocalOrigin <coordinates> (in all games since Alien Swarm) !FGD
Send this entity to a spot in the map. If the entity is parented to something, it will be offset from the parent by this amount.
SetLocalAngles <angles> (in all games since Alien Swarm) !FGD
Set this entity's angles.

Model:
skin <integer>
Selects a skin from the model's index, starting with 0.

Ignite
Makes the entity catch on fire indefinitely.
IgniteLifetime <float>
Makes the entity catch on fire for a given amount of time.
IgniteNumHitboxFires <integer> (removed since Left 4 Dead 2)
Makes the entity catch on fire with a given number of hitbox fire particles. Does not function correctly in Left 4 Dead 2 onward.

SetLightingOrigin <targetname>
Sets the entity's lighting origin to use this entity's position.
SetLightingOriginHack <targetname> (removed since Left 4 Dead) Obsolete
Deprecated. Offsets the entity's lighting origin by their distance from an info_lighting_relative. Use SetLightingOrigin instead.
fademindist <float>
Sets distance at which the entity starts fading. If <0, the entity will disappear instantly when end fade is hit. The value will scale appropriately if the entity is in a 3D Skybox.
fademaxdist <float>
Sets distance at which the entity ends fading. If <0, the entity won't disappear at all. The value will scale appropriately if the entity is in a 3D Skybox.
SetModelScale <vector> (only in Source 2013)
Multiplies the size of the model. Does not alter the physics collisions in most cases. Can take two values separated by a space, in which case the first value would be the target model scale and the second value would be the number of seconds the change in scale will be spread over. If there is no second value, the model will scale instantly.
Tip.png Tip: The modelscale keyvalue can be AddOutputed as a workaround for other games with this input missing.
Warning.png Warning: Negative or extremely high values can cause crashes!
Alpha <integer>
Sets the entity's transparency to a number from 0 (invisible) to 255 (fully visible). Requires the entity to have its Render Mode (rendermode) set to a number other than 0.
