What files will I need to get a pre-load of Garrys mod?

What files will I need to get a pre-load of Garrys mod because I don’t have a very big download usage and my friends has Garry mod so if I get the files then I will end up with a pre-load then I will buy it!
also can someone tell me the directory where they go?

Pardon? Are you looking for downloads for addons that your friend has installed on his server? But you imply you don’t actually have gmod so that’s not it…

What are you saying, exactly?

What you’re asking is whether you can take the GMod files from your friend without buying the game.

The answer to that is no. :colbert:
