Weapon ID


The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, or in short, the Portal Gun, is a special weapon, and cannot be obtained through normal gameplay.


It allows one to place Blue Portal and Orange Portal on the floor. When one enters a portal, he comes out from the other one, thus, the Portal Gun is used for fast transportation. When travelling between portals, it counts who placed the portals down, and one cannot travel between portals made from different players, unlike Teleporter Entrance and Teleporter Exit. Portals can't be placed on a metal floor.

  • Fast travelling through portals results in kick due to accused speedhacking (if mp_antispeeder is set to 1).

  • Portals cannot be placed on metal tiles, deadly tiles, (through) walls, obstacles, and certain areas blocked by an customized Info_NoBuildings entity.
