    Is there any way to make an invisible wall that your body can pass through but you cannot shoot through? Similar to player clip but in reverse.

    Oh man thanks a lot. I feel stupid for not checking source documentation first before asking or I would of easily saw that.

    Thanks again.

    Keep in mind that it does not effect physics objects such as grenades or rockets.

    Actually I just tested it and it's not doing what I want. It is blocking bullets, but it is also blocking players.

    I did find a similar thread here basically saying what I want was not even implemented:

    Guess there's no way around it except using teleports.

    Oh, I see. I didn't know that it blocks players too.

    I seem to recall this issue from something I did a long while back.

    I think the block_bullets tool texture isn't implemented in TF2 correctly.

    block bullets also cuts vis.

    It's a silly tools texture.

    Your best bet is to have a nodraw door with a rediculously high speed and thin trigger, but even then if someone stands in the trigger you can shoot through the door.

    Quite a few people ask about this but realisticly it's impossible to achieve the desired affect. Though i have no idea why you would want this feature in a normal TF2 map (non-gimmicky).

    A glass func_door would probably achieve the desired effect without being gimmicky.

    No it doesn't.
