Bullet Penetration Mod

Adds a long-time requested feature - the ability to shoot through walls, finally teaching that bastard hiding behind a lesson!

Do you hate exposing yourself in a gunfight?
Have you always craved for more tactical complexity in combat?
Do you believe plasterboard is the best material ever invented?

Then this mod is just for you!

  • Shoot through walls, doors, boxes, chairs, windows,... simply EVERYTHING!

  • Damage enemies or props (explosives!) from whole new angle!

  • Material-accurate decals and particle effects for bullet entry/exit points!

  • Force and damage of a bullet drops down with distance and walls penetrated!

  • Dedicated BULLET PENETRATION SHOOTING RANGE map for feature demonstration!

  • Heavily customisable!

  • Scalable Init Support - compatible with other mods and maps!


Replace WEAPON with one of these prefixes:

WEAPON prefixes:

Bullet Penetration can be customised with these commands:

Maximum amount of times the bullet can penetrate
Maximum thickness of a single wall, which the bullet can penetrate, in units
Total thickness of all the walls the bullet can penetrate through
How far can the bullet fly from your weapon
Push force of the bullet
Damage of the bullet
Spread of the bullet after hitting a wall
Number of bullets that penetrate through a wall at once

Example of correct format:
penetration_wpn_smg_cvr_max 5
penetration_wpn_pistol_cvr_max 4

You can create custom configs by adding "bulletpenetration_config.cfg" to your "\Half-Life Alyx\game\hlvr\cfg\" directory.
Put the commands above into the .cfg file to have effect in game.

I added link to the table of default values to the FAQ discussion page.

Realism in video games can ruin the fun. For instance, if shooters were real, blood loss, pain, fear, etc., would make it so that you couldn't enjoy a quick pace. Alyx is fun and very detailed, but I don't really want to eat, sleep, defecate, urinate, etc., because it's more realistic.

I didn't even subscribe. But it's still a thumbs down. The game was easy enough without making it even easier. I have to play the game and every mod on Hard Difficulty or I get very bored. This would just make it worse!

the default values are different for each weapon and some (like damage) are determined by the current damange output of the weapon.

If you write the desired command into console without any parameters (for instance just "penetration_wpn_smg_cvr_max") it will give you the value it's set to at that time.

I'll add some nice table of default values to the FAQ section in a few days, to make it a bit easier to navigate.

Awesome mod, been enjoying it. I thought it wasn't working but it was. If possible, could you provide the default setting the configurations are set to?

The answer in "Feedback - Suggestions" currently still stands, though it can still be done fairly easily. I'd rather save it perhaps for individual maps, rather than to handle it globally.

Does this work both sides? (for enemies)

You can just subscribe to it and enable it in the main menu. If you're using any other mods in conjunction with it, I recommend to download and enable Scalable Init Support as well.

If you're unsure about the process of enabling mods for Alyx, refer to the FAQ post on this page.
