    What the title says. I would like to have harvest_event's explosive pumpkin mechanic, but obviously explosive barrels would be way more ubiquitous and appropriate for non-Halloween settings. CAN IT BE DONE?

    Also, small battery model just in case valve codes the kritz candy as a normal pickup that mappers can place.

    I guess you could make a model replacement for the pumpkin using one of the existing barrels.

    That would be a quick fix, but it wouldn't work in the long run, since players have been trained to think that the barrels aren't explosive, so you would need a new barrel that conveys it is volatile. I wolud suggest something like a barrel with dynamite sticks sticking out of it or something, since it would seperate it from regular barrels by shape, but that's just me.

    You could do a barrel skin with the classic fire logo on it. Also, you might need barrel gibs.

    Might I suggest a more plausible spawning system, if possible. If your map is a factory theme, delivering them by conveyor belt will also mark their spawn points.
