Grav-gun sprites

A Question for Half-Life 2

Members see zero ads. Membership is 100% free
So my question is this: What are the names of all the sprites the Gravity Gun (normal AND supercharged) use?

I've found most of them for the normal Gravity Gun:
  • "orangecore1" --The glow at the front of the gun (shrinks and grows when using)
  • "orangecore2" --Also on the front, but disappears when "orangecore1" grows? Weird, but ok.
  • "orangeflare1" --Appears on the ends of the claws when holding somthing. (with the gun)
  • "orangelight1" --The lightning between the claws, and also appears when you zap stuff.

The only one I think I'm missing for the normal Grav-gun is the small glow on the claws.
I also need to find the equivalent sprites for the Supercharged Grav-gun.

Any help in tracking them down is greatly appreciated.

    I think the supergravity gun's sprite names are 
    physcannon_bluecore and physcannon_blueflare and bluelight

    They should be literally right under the sprites you listed for the Gravity Gun, so basically the same file path and folder location under "sprites"
