I'm gonna make a simple MF mod for the firearms, maybe for the explosions, if i figure out how.

edit: noticed i didn't say anything properly

    The muzzleflash vtfs are shared between most of the weapons. The pistol, revolver, smg, and shotgun mix the 4 variants together randomly to create the flash.

    The crossbow uses muzzleflash1 as the glow effect on the rebar, and the rpg uses the same random mix for the flame-trail effect on the rockets.

    You might be able to modify the models somehow so each one has their own flash sprites, given that the ar2 and gravity gun have their own distinct effects. I wouldn't really know how to do that, though.
