E2 Question?!?! and an exra question 2!

okay, so, im VERY VERY noobish to E2 and was just wondering if it was possible to make an iteam magnetic to players. not npc’s, players. If so, please…please help! im working on a tank, and i want it to have this function where it will pick up players by, for example, a phx plate.

also, what program do people make guns in?
