Half-Life 2 Half-Life 2/Half-Life 2: Episode One Half-Life 2: Episode One/Half-Life 2: Episode Two Half-Life 2: Episode Two:

In the main Half-Life 2 series, this weapon is usually best utilized in close to medium ranged firefights. Ammo is frequent in HL2/EP1, as it is the weapon of choice for CP units and soldiers. In EP2, ammo is less frequent as the player should encounter much less combine forces, however rebel establishments like white forest should have bountiful supplies of ammo. In all games, close combat areas should put a balanced emphasis on Shotgun and SMG usage.

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch Half-Life 2: Deathmatch:

Entropy : Zero Entropy : Zero/Entropy : Zero 2 Entropy : Zero 2:

In the Entropy : Zero series, this weapon has been given a significant increase to both damage and recoil, giving a heavier emphasis on close-range fights. Ammo is somewhat frequent, as most rebels use the SMG. The player should have a fair amount of SMG ammunition at all times.



Start Fade Dist (fademindist) <float>
Distance at which the entity starts to fade.
End Fade Dist (fademaxdist) <float>
Max fade distance at which the entity is visible.
  • If start fade is <0, the entity will disappear instantly when end fade is hit.
  • If end fade is <0, the entity won't disappear at all. (This is the default behavior.)
The values will scale appropriately if the entity is in a 3D Skybox.
Fade Scale (fadescale) <float>
If you specify so in worldspawn, or if the engine is running below DirectX 8 (DX7 in Source 2006), props will fade out even if the fade distances above aren't specified. This value gives you some control over when this happens: numbers smaller than 1 cause the prop to fade out at further distances, while those greater than 1 cause it to fade out at closer distances. Using 0 turns off the forced fade altogether. See also the QC command $noforcedfade.
