    What happens when you mix a camera, unlimited amounts of an endangered species and the sadistic need to test new ways to destroy helpless creatures?

    Hope you enjoy the video :). I'm starting to map again.

    Don't tell people how, or else you will see a slew of badly balanced maps with the Crit candy gimick all over the place.

    I was hoping it was something more than that. Otherwise it might as well be a button.

    And you should add a regular uber gate then, too.

    Damn it. I was hoping they'd discovered to secret to the drop itself.

    Thats the correct answer and how the map will behave! Except that's not what I used in the video :p

    In fact it was a dirty cheat. The candy was a prop_dynamic created by a console command, with an extra one to make it spin. Then a key was bound to give the crit effect (addcond 11) and kill the prop_dynamic at the same time. I pressed they key when I was about to touch the candy to get the effect. The pickup sound and positive response from the soldier were added in post-production

    AFAIK, the candy drop is an ammo box entity. It must have some kind of parameter to set it to give crits, but I'm guessing here.

    It is. Valve made players drop two ammo pickups: the weapon and the candy. The candy itself works like the sandvich. It doesn't give ammo, but adds a condition.
