Around halfway through Finals Week 2012, I decided to make a railgun using combined bits of the existing default guns and retexture them. The scope,stock and magazine are from the hunting rifle, the body is portions of the minigun resized and moved around, the rails sticking out the front are from the pump shotgun, the flashlight is normally on the pistol, the rail attachment systems are from the top of the autoshotgun, and then there's the pipebombs sticking out of the bottom.

The hardest part of all the project was trial-and-erroring my way into getting the texture for the zoom to display properly. When zoomed, the game actually refers to 4 different texture files to arrange them into the crosshair/scope image. Then there's two other individual textures beneath each of those, to tell it how to handle transparency and the distortion seen around the edges.

Known problems: None, but I did include a burning/sparking emitter in between the rails in the view model, so it looks like the sparks coming off a normal pipebomb. Unfortunately, this does not appear in the game, so if anyone finds out how to get it working, let me know.

EDIT: I've rebuilt the models to have sockets for the pipebombs to go into, this should remove clipping (or just make it less obvious). Other changes are noted in the screenshots.

    Trying to use the insta-gib pipebomb script will give you an error when you try to join the match. It's because the server will enforce the consistency of the weapon\_hunting\_rifle.txt file that the game uses to define stuff. However, that same file, by default, looks to use a specific model by name, which just happens to be what I made the railgun's model to be, so the model, textures, and sounds will work in multiplayer. This all hinges on whether the directory vpk was altered as in the instructions.

    I can't upload because Terms of Service. The materials and models vpk won't work until the dir01.vpk is edited, something I wish Valve would fix for L4D1 like they did in 2.

    very nice. my only complaint is the pipebombs, they're the only piece that's clearly clipping.

    > hey how did you get the l4d2 spas to work in game,i thought you can only get it to work with the vpk on l4dmaps that only works on singleplayer.

    I decompiled it, changed its settings in the .qc file, then recompiled it with the same name as the default one. Then edited the dir.vpk to get the game to load the custom one instead. I would have posted it on GB already, but doing so would violate the TOS.
