    I'm trying to make some particle effects for my map and when I go through the list of materials there's only a handful of different particles to use.

    Am I missing something here or does TF2 just not use alot of different particle materials?

    Particles are found in .pcf files. You can find those in the sdk_content/tf/particles folder. To open a .pcf file you have to launch TF2 with -tools.

    Those are particle system files. I'm looking for the materials to use in my own particle systems.

    Really? That just seems like a really backwards way of doing things.
