    I come again, with another puzzle!

    I need to make another map for a tournament, basically, dodgeball with the sandman, but, in order for this to work, I need the scouts to spawn without either any weapons, or any Sandman ammo.

    Basically, it will work like real dodgeball, you spawn without Sandman ammo, but there are 7 baseballs in the center of the arena, if you get stunned, you're out.

    Don't think that's possible.

    Yeah, this would require server side code for both disabling the ball recharge and detecting the stun.

    This is something you want to contact Valve about. Ask about their hard coded stuff.

    Do you think Valve know about this?

    You could remove all the weapons except sandman, and remove it's ammo. (ctx editing :D )
    And maybe do ent_info on the dropped ball, and like copy it's settings to hammer, creating a new entity.
    Maybe you also need to do .fgd editing to do that, not really sure.
