Someone plz make a mod to remove ammo piles.
In the commentary, valve said they wanted players to have to switch weapons frequently as they went through, but then they put ammo piles all over the levels. I almost never run out of ammo on my favorite guns so that I would have to tactically consider replacing it rather than waiting until the next ammo pile inevitably comes up. However, after a while I realized that constantly switching guns mixed it up and kept the game experience fresher, as you can't just rely on using your favorite gun that you're comfortable with for the rest of the campaign. I suggest someone make a mod that just removes all ammo piles from the game (and if needed for balance, put an occasional new gun in their place). Of course you can simply not use ammo piles, but I think the game would be much more fun and balanced if you had to switch weapons constantly. Besides, what's more likely to actually happen, finding a gun with some bullets still in it, or finding a pile of ammo that has some mags for every weapon you could possibly be holding except grenades or m60s?

i might be crazy- but i swear that the ammo piles become fewer and fewer the higher the difficulty you put it

surely it is personal preference? if you enjoy switching weapons then great, good for you... if you prefer certain ones then you tend to stick with them and enjoy the game more for it... i personally refuse to use a sniper rifle.. i find them rubbish and much prefer the rat tat tat of my M4 (skinned from l4dmaps)... you would never run out of ammo since your 2ndary weapon has unlimited amounts of it and to be fair once i have a Deagle i rarely use a main weapon ... 1 thing i can suggest to you then which will certainly help you not get fed up of endless ammo ... DONT try Gib Fest... youll hate it :p :D

Gib fest is a great way to get an expert achievment though and it's fast

Rayman1103's mutation mod has a few game modes that completely get rid of ammo piles and don't have magically reappearing guns, once you pick it up, it's gone except for the one in your hands..

Not sure about .vpk mods though (client side ones).

Agreed though there is way to many ammo piles on maps in vs and co op etc, at the least the ammo piles should not be unlimited (standing there constantly picking up ammo) perhaps ahve it so there is a limited amount from each pile that can be grabbed.

Other than Mutations and singleplayer a VPK wouldn't be able to do anything anyway.
Honestly your best bet is either hosting a server with a mod that does it (I'm sure they exist) or find servers that do it and favorite them.
