None of my (addon) gun sounds are working.

Hi FacePunch forums! This is my first post here, been stalling making an account for awhile. I’ve been trying to play gmod, but I don’t recieve any sound whenever I fire weapons or use addon items. HL2 weapons work fine.

So pretty much, no guns make sounds except for bullet impacts and flying by, and also excluding HL2 weapons.

quick edit: I’ve also tried deleting garrysmod/download/sound folders and sourceengine/sound folders.

You should verify your game cache to get those folders back. Does this only happen to guns? If not, can you give examples to what else this happens to?
