UTIL_MuzzleFlash is a UTIL provided in the Source code for muzzle flashes. However it is only called once in the code by CNPC_Assassin. Since the npc_assasin was never included in Half-Life 2, this function may be outdated.

Note:Due to the questionable usage of this function, see UTIL_Tracer, or UTIL_ParticleTracer instead.


Usage

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Purpose: Make a muzzle flash appear
// Input  : &origin - position of the muzzle flash
//			&angles - angles of the fire direction

//			type - type of muzzle flash
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
void UTIL_MuzzleFlash( const Vector &origin, const QAngle &angles, int scale, int type )
{
	CPASFilter filter( origin );

	te->MuzzleFlash( filter, 0.0f, origin, angles, scale, type );
}
