    Is it possible in TF2 to create damaging water; that is, a sludge pool that would hurt players if they fall in? I've tried researching it on the Valve community docs, but to no avail. Any thoughts?

    maybe the trigger was just trying to express itself and didn't mean to hurt the entity?

    Just make sure you use the right sound effect. I've fallen into damaging water and heard electricity sounds, was like 'wtf?'.

    But don't use the FREEZE hurt -- because if you stay in the sludge until it kills you, it'll look like you were run over by a train :D

    during earlier time perio ds many people were fighting for the most direct train routes, so the possibilities of trains through swampy areas were explored. though the rail systems have long since sunk, some say the ghosts of the olde trains still run, just beneath the surface.
