So there I was one day, browsing models in Source Hammer, when one of them caught my eye. It was called "Magnade" , and appeared to be the "Magnusson Device" rigged over the grenade... So I put it over the grenade.
It actually worked straight out of the files without any model editing at all, just had to rename it. I suspect it might have ether been a scraped feature, or an inside joke with Valve. (It even came with a world model!)
Either way, this is technically official, as it was made by Valve, so that's cool!
[Replaces held, thrown, and ammo for grenade.(Not ammo crate) Works in HL2, Ep1, Ep2, etc.]
If I recall, early in development they were going to add it as a new weapon. They realized that having the Gravity Gun do it was cooler, didn't require new code, and would make Neighborhood Watch a complete kick in the dick, so they did that instead.
