no hl2 weapons in single player

when I play singleplayer, I only have the tool gun, camera and physics gun, all other guns from hl2 are missing.
on a possibly unrelated note, I have to keep reactivating the console every time I play.
If this has been answered before, I’m sorry for wasting your time, as it sounds as if it could be a common problem.

Open console:
sv_cheats 1
impulse 101

oh yeah
goddamit, how could i forget, anyway, thanks!

You don’t have to use cheats. Go to console and type in “sbox_weapons 1”.

Alternately you could just go to the settings panel of the play singleplayer menu and select “Start with Weapons.”
