The Tool Gun

The Tool Gun is an important tool in Garry's Mod. It allows players to manipulate a variety of functions to create different things. The gun itself looks like a revolver with lots of technical wiring and a screen on the back, displaying the tool being used. Also, items in the GUI menu can be spawned using this.



  • The Tool Gun uses the sounds of the pulse cannon from the Airboat in Half Life 2.
  • If looked at closely, you can see random text written on the LCD screen, like "You have not crashed! Click here to crash!"
  • The Tool Gun is modeled after a Colt Single Action Army revolver, but with several computer components attached.
  • The Tool Gun uses the same viewmodel animations as the Revolver.
  • The Tool Gun appears to be running Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 as the operating system.
  • Also, at the top of the screen of the Tool Gun it shows " < Back to Counter-Strike " and " Team Fortress 2 > "
