(Serverside) Whether this weapon can be autoswitched away from when the player runs out of ammo in this weapon or picks up another weapon or ammo
(Serverside) Whether this weapon can be autoswitched to when the player runs out of ammo in their current weapon or they pick this weapon up

Default: surface.GetTextureID( 'weapons/swep' )
(Clientside) Should we use Counter-Strike muzzle flashes upon firing? This is required for DoD:S or CS:S view models to fix their muzzle flashes.
(Clientside) Use the X shape muzzle flash instead of the default Counter-Strike muzzle flash. Requires CSMuzzleFlashes to be set to true
Primary attack settings. The table contains these fields:
- string Ammo - Ammo type ("Pistol", "SMG1" etc)
- number ClipSize - The maximum amount of bullets one clip can hold
- number DefaultClip - Default ammo in the clip, making it higher than ClipSize will give player additional ammo on spawn
- boolean Automatic - If true makes the weapon shoot automatically as long as the player has primary attack button held down
Secondary attack settings, has same fields as Primary attack settings
(Clientside) Makes the player models hands bonemerged onto the view model
The folder from where the weapon was loaded. This should always be "weapons/weapon_myweapon", regardless whether your SWEP is stored as a file, or multiple files in a folder. It is set automatically on load
