Help with Hammer & custom entities

Hey, I’m making my first gamemode/map for gmod called Left 4 Food where there are four players and they have to progress through the level in a L4D fashion except with a twist…

anyways is there any way to place custom entities in hammer such as a food entity I found on If not, is there a way to place something like a melon.mdl and then add a func that gives health when E is pressed on it?

thanks in advance

Place down a point entity, and type in the name.

Like place an info_player_start and type in where it says info_player_start
change it to like: sent_bouncyball (or whatever the bouncy ball entity is)

oh ok thanks man!
