Will Garrys Mod work with Portal 2?

I really want to get GMod soon. But the only source games I have are Portal 2 and Team Fortress 2. Will it work? Or do I need CSS/HL2?

the next version will have the stuff from portal 2. They are in beta as we speak and its best to have those last 2 as well Most of the multi player servers use stuff/maps from them.And i believe tf2 will work

TF2 is currently supported. Right now there is no way to officially play Portal 2 maps or use Portal 2 content, but it is somewhat possible. I would strongly recommend getting either HL2 or CS:S, as most custom maps use content from these games. The game will still work fine if you don't have those games, but you might occasionally run into missing models and textures.

No, they're separate games. But the Episode One and Episode Two content will work, it's just the HL2 maps that won't work.

Gmod already comes with most hl2 stuff, so getting it isnt neccessary, ep2 and css are the most important, although ep1 has sounds that are used as well

Gmod doesn't give you the maps for free, and I imagine a ton of other stuff is missinga aswell

The maps are really theonly thing missing, as are a few graphic effects, however gmod is a hl2 mod at heart, soit comes with most hl2 stuff

They are not designed to work with Gmod, no. Yes, if you have any skill in Hammer, they CAN be remade, but they do NOT function as Portal maps, only as general posing maps. The ai and scripting is not present in gmod to run them as you would in portal 2.

Also, antlions, stop responding to things that are obviously dead in the water.
