Example

This example implements custom gunshot sounds.

function playGunfireSound(weaponID)
	local muzzleX, muzzleY, muzzleZ = getPedWeaponMuzzlePosition(source)
	local dim = getElementDimension(source)
	local int = getElementInterior(source)
	setAmbientSoundEnabled ("gunfire", false)

	local weaponSounds = {
		[22] = "sounds/weap/colt45.ogg",
		[23] = "sounds/weap/silenced.ogg",
		[24] = "sounds/weap/deagle.ogg",
		[25] = "sounds/weap/shotgun.ogg",
		[26] = "sounds/weap/sawed-off.ogg",

		[32] = "sounds/weap/tec9.ogg",
		[34] = "sounds/weap/sniper.ogg",
	}

	if weaponSounds[weaponID] then
		sound = playSound3D(weaponSounds[weaponID], muzzleX, muzzleY, muzzleZ)
		setSoundMaxDistance(sound, 90)
		setElementDimension(sound, dim)
		setElementInterior(sound, int)

addEventHandler("onClientPlayerWeaponFire", root, playGunfireSound)

This example sends a warning to the local player if they shoot another player with a minigun.

--First, we create a function for the event handler to use.
function onClientPlayerWeaponFireFunc(weapon, ammo, ammoInClip, hitX, hitY, hitZ, hitElement )
    if weapon == 38 and getElementType(hitElement)=="player" then -- If the player shoots with a minigun, and hits another player...
         outputChatBox ( "Don't kill people with minigun, it's lame!", 255, 0, 0 ) -- We output a warning to him.
    end
end
-- Add this as a handler so that the function will be triggered every time the local player fires.
addEventHandler ( "onClientPlayerWeaponFire", getLocalPlayer(), onClientPlayerWeaponFireFunc )

This example makes the Shotgun fire explosive rounds.

function onClientPlayerWeaponFireFunc(weapon, ammo, ammoInClip, hitX, hitY, hitZ, hitElement)
    if (weapon == 25) then -- If the player shoots with a shotgun
        createExplosion(hitX, hitY, hitZ, 12, true, 0, true) -- Creates a tiny explosion where the bullet hit.
    end
end
-- Add this as a handler so that the function will be triggered every time a player fires.
addEventHandler("onClientPlayerWeaponFire", root, onClientPlayerWeaponFireFunc)
