I see this floor shooting mentioned in threads but I didn't know about this, could someone point me to a list of weapons that can shoot through walls/flloors?

Sniper rifle and Bolter (a.k.a. Elecromagnetic Rifle). Latter one works better.

Don't forget the Coilgun, it has the same penetration than the Bolter.

@Latino210: There's a max wall (or floor) thickness a shot will go through: 8, so a whole solid level is much more than enough to stop anything shooting through roofs.

Yep, but also walkable passages should be at least 56 units high, and 64-56=8, so any standard ceiling will be not more than 8 units thick.

It will not. This is a bug. You can only do a workaround by removing the func_door entities from the map.

I've tried removing all func_door from the tile, but the weird shadows are still there. Do you think that I should remove all doors from all tiles? Well, it's not a severe bug anyways, it's just some weird graphic effect.

In my experience the problem only occured when there was a func_door on the map tile. If you find something different, you can add it to the tracker or maybe to this forum thread.

I'll try to remove all the doors from the tiles, maybe something will happen. By the way, do you know how to make a brush passable by gunfire? I've tried setting the "passable" parameter, but it does not work. The brush blocks gunfire anyways.
