    Improved Grappling Hook Physics Prefab - TF2's default grappling hook physics suck.

    TF2's grappling hook physics suck by default, so I attempted a fix based more on Titanfall 2's hooks, preserving player look direction/momentum.

    It works by parenting a trigger_push to a player, enabling when the player grapples and steering their velocity based on their look position.

    • Works on laggy connections (150-300 ping)
    • Works without point_servercommand
    • Works for any number of players
    • Configurable to work with any setup

    Known issues (as of a1a):
    • Because it propels players forward, grappling is generally faster, especially when aiming at the grapple target: this can be made far more natural by changing the server cvar tf_grapplinghook_move_speed to 400-500

    Cool! I wonder if there is a video that shows off this prefab?
