SDK weapons
I can only seem to find some of the weapons in the editor (like asw_pickup_vindicator) for example but i seem to be missing some (tesla, heal beacon/gun for instance). Can anyone tell me what they are located under since i can't seem to find that info online)?

Is there a comprehansive list of what the weapons are in the editor? (specifically ones that would be spawned on the ground).
The editor (hammer) only knows about stuff that is in its FGD files. The game's source code in sdk_src would be the place to look for entities that actually exist ingame.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

it's simple, run hammer go in options and find the FGD path

Yeah i deleted the comment because i found the path, not what i expected (i currently have both the FGD and the extended one, would it be better to replace the standard or keep both?)

Quick new problem most guns deployed withought a prob, some had no ammo but i can deploy ammo drops next to them to remedy that. However the minigun doesn't spawn and the ammo sachel has -1 (not 2 actually -1) charges somehow.

dimedroll's addon is like a game mod, it doesn't respect some game rules and may produce strange effect with different mods. i guess developers' had some reasons not to include all those weapons inside hammer.

it has coding errors too. but it's mostly harmless, i guess.

how about using search, or taking a look at the 1st thread list page before spamming other ppl's thread and offtopicing? geeez!

You need to keep both FGD files in your settings as the one I gave you contains only missing entities.
As for your spawning problems, take a look at an example VMF I've just uploaded on the same page:
