Having just checked the source you posted against the displayed source, I think you will find that the line above where you get the error has three unmatched open brackets.
C++
if ( ( pPlayer->pev->weapons & (1<
I suspect you did not copy the line completely when you pasted it in from whatever website you found it at. You may well find that you need to go back to the site, and copy the source code again, properly this time!

In future, indent your code so it is readable, or be prepared for some nasty messages and a distinct lack of help - if you make it difficult for us, then why would we help you? It's not as if we get paid for this!

Thanks for your help!
The if statement right before your comment of "{//error here" looks like it is not closed properly.

if ( ( pPlayer->pev->weapons & (1<

If you are using Visual Studio to edit your files, you can use CTRL+] to help find matching braces.
If you use CTRL+] on the line with the braces with the error comment, you will see that it finds the matching end brace.
If you try CTRL+] on the previous line with the if statement, it can't find the matching closing parentheses.
