Ehh, they have certainly admitted it.

We need to keep fighting. Make a couple of stops on our way home from the Persian Gulf. First stop! Vietnam! Surprise the fuck out of those people, huh?"" Denis Leary

but they would have had a heavy machine gun, molitov coctails, the slam, an AK47, an extra smg, a flare gun, stunstick and icepick

edit: and the tau cannon

I agree with you there, that is one of the main points in an FPS to me is a bunch of weapons, I mean this has a great assortment don't get me wrong, but Just like wolf said, an ak47, im suprised not even an m-16, that gun is everywhere. But it was based far in the future it seems so some guns might have been ruled out. I would like to see a m249 SAW. But one of the best guns is by far the gravity gun, I love that thing.

Wow that's a funny video. There are some of the weapons I didn't know about.
Is it possible in anyway to enable them in the full version?

er kinda..... i know you can get father Gagoris shotgun, but it looks just like the normal shotgun, only it fires 2 magnum rounds instead of 6 buckshot. and you can get the alyx gun too, you dont see the model but it gives you a 3 shot burst. other things like the slam work when they want to......

i think to get the shotgun its give weapon_anabell or however you spell his 1st name
and the other is like give weapon_alyxgun, but dont quote me on those, when i get a chance ill post the list.

also one thing i gotta hand to valve is the amount of little details put into the game, did anyone notice when you park the buggy and go indoors seaguls crap all over it?

Has anyone heard of a mod that has no weapons except explosives in it. I guess I should say no guns, it has like dynamite, c4, grenades, a bunch of other explosives. The reason it was made is because the person hated it when people dl mods just for new guns. It's for Half life 1 though im pretty sure. It looked pretty sweet, I couldn't dl it though I had 56k and it took ages to dl. I think the mod is called destruction or something with a d in it.
