    So it seems that Hammer magically deleted a few textures to choose from, I have no idea why. Most of the default dev textures went missing, and more maybe, but I have no idea considering I'm a complete noob.

    Any idea what I should do?

    Validate TF2's cache via Steam.

    Right click on TF2 in the Steam library, then Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache. What likely happened is that you had Hammer opened when Steam updated TF2 which results in missing stuff.

    "All files successfully validated."

    Nothing changed. The only "tf" keyword dev textures are two RED textures and two BLU textures.
    Do I need to reinstall certain files? I'm so confused.

    Did you close Hammer while you validated the files?

    Pretty sure I did, but I'll validate the files again just in case.

    EDIT: Nope, didn't work. Nothing changed.

    Reinstall the abs pack.

    Apparently reinstalling A Boojum Snark's Resource Pack brought the missing textures back.
    So...I guess this is problem solved, for now? If textures go missing again and reinstalling the resource pack doesn't fix it, then I won't know what to do.

    Maybe the textures in question aren't even in the game by default, but part of the pack?

    Type 'dev' without keywords for the gray variant and other dev textures.

    The problem here is they were searching for textures with the keyword "tf". Without the ABS pack installed, only the team color dev textures are tagged "tf".
