The Gravity Gun seems to be blooming a little too much.
The gun is blurred because of the dynamic depth of field effect. Since the camera is centered on objects in the distance, nearby objects (i.e the gun) are blurred. However, when you look at nearby objects (ground, chair, enemies) then they AND your gun are IN focus while distant objects grow OUT of focus. It's really cool, real-time effect. Screenshots can't really capture the effect...
