  Entity:SetWeaponModel( string viewModel, Weapon weapon = NULL )


Sets the model and associated weapon to this viewmodel entity.

This is used internally when the player switches weapon.

View models are not drawn without a weapons associated to them.
This will silently fail if the entity is not a viewmodel.


1 string viewModel
The model string to give to this viewmodel. Example: "models/weapons/c_smg1.mdl"
2 Weapon weapon = NULL
The weapon entity to associate this viewmodel to.


Sets the model of the second viewmodel to the smg and associates it with the player's current weapon.

Entity( 1 ):GetViewModel( 1 ):SetWeaponModel( "models/weapons/c_smg1.mdl", Entity( 1 ):GetActiveWeapon() )


Initializes the extra viewmodel in Deploy and hides it again on Holster, also plays the attack animation on left and right click.
