Editing/Disabling tracer round effects shot from HL2 weapons?

I’m tired of how they look.

I’ve seen people it change it with particle editors + editing the coding of the weapon but that was for their own mod.

It doesn’t seem like there are any models/materials governing these tracers.

I’ve also stumbled upon this: http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Util.Effect_list but its not like I even know how to alter any of these things.
