Description Convars Keyvalues Flags Other Weapons


weapon_stcannon is the entity name for the portable strider cannon weapon found in SMOD.

Primary Fire: Fires a thin blue beam at the target area as the gun emits a loud whirring sound. Once charged, an explosion of dark energy hits the target of the beam, in most cases dissolving it and most everything near it (including normally-indestructible props, friendly NPCs, yourself, and other vital objects).

Secondary Fire: Charges the gun to fire a large core of dark energy. If the core passes close enough to an NPC, a stream of energy will sap their health. Uncharged cores do about 15 points of damage on impact; fully charged cores upwards of 200-300.

    Sets the sprite effect used by the strider cannon's alternate fire.
  • weapon_stcannon_chargespeed <float> ( Default: 0.05 )
