So I have a folder of weapon sounds from Team Fortress 2. Is there an easy way to match between the sounds and a weapon? Some are straightforward (such as wrench_hit_world) but others aren't clear.

Just looking at the sounds in team fortress 2 content.gcf/tf/sound/weapons, here are ones that aren't labeled with their common names or might be confusing:

  • axe - Scotsman's Skullcutter, and probably the Headless Horsemann's Axe as well
  • bat_baseball - Sandman
  • bat - Normal bat
  • blade - all spy knives
  • bow - Huntsman
  • cbar - Crowbar (not in TF2)
  • demo_charge - Chargin' Targe
  • fist - Heavy's fists
  • gatling - Brass Beast
  • metal_gloves - Fists of Steel
  • minifun - Natasha
  • pickaxe - Equalizer, but sounds like it could be the swing sounds for the other Soldier weapons as well
  • pipe_bomb - stickies blowing up

Most of the others are pretty straightforward, e.g. holy_mackerel, letranger, boxing_gloves

That's a good start, what about things like the wrench hitting a player? All the wrench_hits seem to be for world/build hits. – Jim Apr 9 '11 at 18:36
@Jim, that might be the cbar sounds – Nick T Apr 9 '11 at 18:52
