How to get Combine NPCs to use different weapons

A Tutorial for Half-Life 2

A mod for GMod recently came out that allowed Metrocops to use AR2s/shotguns and Combine soldiers to use the pistol/revolver, and to my surprise it works in default HL2.

First off get the link to the original mod.

Next go to a site that let's you manually download Steam workshop addons, such as this one.

(If you're using the downloader I recommended) Paste the workshop mod URL into the downloader's search bar and click download.

Once the .zip file has downloaded, open it and you'll see a folder called "models".

Go into Half-Life 2's custom folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\custom) by default, and create a new folder, name it whatever you want.

Extract the "models" folder from the .zip file into the folder you just created.

Launch the game and load a map of your choice, go into the console and type:

"npc_create_equipment shotgun" followed by "npc_create npc_metropolice"

If the spawned NPC is properly attacking the player and not t-posing, then the mod has been installed correctly

This should work with the episodes and HL2: Update, however this hasn't been tested with MMod or other Combine mods, so use at your own risk in those fields.
