    Weapon buckets (bucket) start at 0 (Crowbar, Gravity Gun), and 5 (Bugbait). Weapon slots (bucket_position) similarly start at 0 and end at 31 in most branches by default.

    The difference between the two is that the bucket_position cannot be the same as another weapon, and will cause only one to be selectable.

    Adding more weapons to the buckets are possible, i.e. changing the AR2 to the Pistol bucket is definitely possible, as long as you change the bucket_position to be an empty position in the list.

    There's also the console-style bucket appearance you can toggle with hud_fastswitch 2, which uses the commands bucket_360 and bucket_position_360. All the default HL2 weapons have those commands, which can be referenced in the scripts/weapon_* files.
